About the Host of your Photoshoot near Charlotte, North Carolina
I’m Hunter, an award-winning Adventure Wedding Photographer based in East TN. I guess you could say that I have an itch for a good adventure! I grew up hiking, climbing, fishing, and all-around exploring throughout the Southern Appalachians as a boy. After college, I married my sweetheart, and we moved to Haiti, where we lived for seven years doing humanitarian work. It was there that I learned the power of photography to tell people’s stories.
In 2017 when we moved back to the states, I dreamed of the best way that I could incorporate my love for the outdoors, my passion for photography, and capturing stories worth sharing. So, I became an Adventure Wedding Photographer. What other job do you get to be in the mountains and photograph a couple during the most exciting moments of their lives?
Since then, I have joined dozens of amazing couples right in the middle of their wedding journey. Being a guide to them through the mountains and the wedding planning process. I look forward to being there for you and documenting your story in our beautiful mountains!
