meet AMBER

Child of God, Wife, Mom to three wild personalities, wedding photographer and many things in between.

When I’m not photographing extraordinary couples, you can find me playing with my kids (yoga pants not optional), organizing our home, or sipping a smoothie at our favorite juice bar.

We can’t wait to serve you, celebrate with you, and maybe gush a little over how incredible you both look


We make it fun, casual and deliver beautiful results every time.

Amber HAS A servant heart  & sweet soul

I’m so glad you’re here! I’m Amber, the lead photographer behind all the lovely weddings you see here, resident chocolate addict (the darker, the better), and home design junkie. I met my husband, Mitchell, in the halls of Western Carolina University where our only conversation was a passing, “Hey girl!” until he gathered the gumption to ask me for a real date. Seven years and three babies later, he still walks through the door with the same two words.

capturing AUTHENTIC + JOYFUL photos that transcend the test of time.

It’s my purest belief that weddings are a celebration of sacred commitment and that strong marriages are foundational in creating time-honored legacies of love. We’ve served over a hundred brides & grooms and never tire of the thrill of it - big bouquets, inherited heirlooms, classically-styled couples, and effortless romance. 

Authentic, bubbly, outgoing, up for adventure, love for details + heirlooms, appreciates a good pair of shoes, 

the AMBER HATLEY bride

I WANT TO GET TO KNOW YOU!
