I grew up in a small town in the foothills of North Carolina. I have always had a deep love for the mountains and the beauty I find in God’s creation. My husband and I share that same love and passion for the outdoors. We are also very passionate about serving and investing in people and building genuine relationships with those around us.
We believe that connecting with others is so crucial in life. Sharing life with other people brings so much joy and we want to spread that everywhere we go!
I discovered a deep love for photography a while back that has only grown stronger each time I pick up my camera. I think photography, specifically wedding photography, is a natural mix of the things I cherish most in life -- love and commitment, moments shared with people, adventure, and the natural beauty around us. I have always been a creative soul, whether that’s singing with my sister, doodling in my journal, making flower arrangements as a little girl, or picking up my camera. I am so blessed to have the opportunity to use photography to meet new people and serve them well on a day they will remember for the rest of their lives.
We live in a little valley-town just past the Nantahala River in Western North Carolina. Boone, NC still feels like home and I love any excuse to spend time in the High Country.
This summer, our daughter officially became a Batten and we feel so blessed to be her forever family. We love teach her all about the mountains that surround us but more importantly we love teaching her about the beautiful picture of love that adoption give us. Not that adoption isn’t messy…it totally is! And transition can be hard, but that’s the beauty of unconditional love, isn’t it? NO matter what, she will always be loved fully and she will always be ours. FOREVER!
Curtis and I both have a degree in Outdoor Recreation so our love for the wilderness plays a huge role in how we live our lives and how I operate my business. We love backpacking, spending time on the river, and sharing meals by the campfire. I would love for BBP couples to become more than clients; we want you to be friends and maybe join us on a trip in the backcountry one day.
