AMBER HATLEY

Wedding & lifestyle photography

Asheville, North Carolina

“A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.”

We believe in capturing your love story, your way. We love getting to know you, your friends and family and seeing your genuine connection. 

MY APPROACH

My goal is to know you personally and know your expectations

My goal going into each wedding is to get to know my clients and their expectation and vision for their day. I want to document it in the most beautiful and organic way for each couple, with attention to detail, lighting, and moments. At the end of the day, I want my photographs to be a representation of your day exactly as it unfolded.

frequently asked questions

What is your shooting style like?

I strive to be both discreet and interactive on the wedding day. There will be parts of the wedding day when I will need to be in control in order to accomplish everything that needs to be done while staying on schedule (family formals). There will also be moments when you shouldn't even know I'm there. 

How soon will we get the photos?

For portrait sessions, the final online gallery will be completed within 2 weeks after the session. Weddings take 6 weeks.

How many images will I receive?

I average 75-100 images per hour that I am shooting. I love delivering my client’s files quickly and easily via an online gallery. You will have the ability to print, share and download your images as much as you want. I believe in freely sharing our work because that is what I would want if I were in your shoes!

Can I give you a list of images I like?

In general, I don't accept Pinterest boards or shot lists. It's important for me to maintain creative control over the engagement session or wedding day to create images that truly represent you and your story and not someone else.
