Photography is an investment in your memories. We understand that a good photograph is far more than just the right location, perfect lighting, and a "pose" - its about being there to capture the happily unplanned. The moments when you're feeling your best with the sand between your toes. When the wind decides to come out and play. A wedding party finally letting loose at a reception. Grandma coming up and giving you that sneaky $20. Those are the images you'll continue to revisit and we'll make sure you have those.

FAQ'S & ANSWERS
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A PHOTOGRAPHER?
We've been full time for 5 years, while individually starting about 6 years prior to that! So for forever!
WHERE ARE YOU BASED OUT OF? DO COUPLES EVER TRAVEL TO YOU FOR SHOOTS?
We are based out of Kingsport, TN! Plenty of couples travel to us for their engagement sessions because the National Parks around us are to die for! Mountains, forests, waterfalls... We have it all! Pro tip: We usually travel to weddings for free where the couples come to us for engagement sessions (depending on location of the wedding)
WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?
Our turnaround time depends on the season that your event/shoot took place! During slow seasons, it'll likely be 2-3 weeks. During our peak season (April, May, August, September, October, November) it'll be closer to 4-6 weeks! We take our time to insure that you have galleries that don't disappoint.
HOW MANY IMAGES DO YOU INCLUDE?
It varies by couple and wedding! We don't ever withhold images and try to charge you more later to see the good ones (photographers that do that are lame) We deliver everything that turns out good from the engagement sessions and wedding, usually far more than you would know what to do with!
HOW DO PAYMENT SCHEDULES WORK?
We require a 50% retainer to book the wedding date and to secure a spot for the complimentary engagement session! The remainder of the amount wouldn't be due until a month before your wedding date!
WHAT IF WE NEED TO CANCEL/RESCHEDULE OUR SHOOT OR WEDDING?
We look at these situations on a case by case basis. So If you need to reschedule a wedding due to a situation out of your control (world pandemics) then we are happy to reschedule you WITHOUT a new retainer as long as its within a year of your current date and not on a Saturday. Otherwise, a new retainer will be needed to secure a new date.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU CAN’T MAKE IT TO OUR WEDDING?
In this case, there are two of us so luckily we've never had to deal with this. HOWEVER, if something happens to us out of our control (act of God, serious illness, death) then we definitely won't leave you hanging. We'll work with you to make sure you have one of our associate shooters there to cover your wedding. Or if Asher & Emily Photography altogether is unavailable, we will refund any money paid and work with you to find a replacement.
WHAT IF THERE’S BAD WEATHER?
Embrace it, we're going to have a good time! Also, you're about to have some epic/unique photos. Let that hair down, its time to dance in the rain.
HOW DOES COVERING TRAVEL EXPENSES WORK?
We travel fo free to weddings within 4 hours of our home! Within 8 hours, we just charge the cost of gas and a hotel room! Beyond that, we'll just charge the cost of plane tickets and a super crisp high five.
DO WE GET BOTH ASHER AND EMILY AT OUR WEDDING?
For 99% of traveling weddings with two shooters booked, yes! Either one of us can't stand being left home! For weddings within the 8 hour travel distance, it'll likely be Asher + one of our second shooters! Emily is a fitness model full time, as well, so her time prioritizes towards that!
DO YOU HELP IN THE PLANNING PROCESS?
Uhhh, heck yeah! Whatever you need help with, let us know! We're here to give you any recommendations and do whatever to make this process easier for you.
