Outstanding photographers. Very personable, we had a group of 34 people and they handled the group and small group shoots very professionally. They put everyone at ease, from the one year old to the older members. I think the best way to describe our experience is that many of our family members came to me after the shoot and told me that they loved the experience and thought the photographers were great. I would highly recommend JCM to anyone who needs a photographer. The pictures that I have received are great and the overall experience added to the memory.

I had the chance to work with Aimie as I planned my engagement. She not only took photos she assist me with ideas, suggested places to eat and shoot my engagement photos. Aimie was very professional and a great communicater through my weeks of planning. She caught every moment of my proposal while creating a romantic scene shooting from different angles. I highly recommend Aimie to be your photographer for any special, former or causal event. Thanks A Lot!!!

Josh served as photographer for Turning Pointe School of Dance in Michigan for about 6 years. We are a pre-professional ballet school with 400 students. We do large scale, ticketed ballets....not recitals. Josh was able to capture the artistry of the lovely choreography with dramatic lighting. He also produced DVD's of our performances. Josh was also very helpful to our nonprofit organization by assisting us as our IT person. Needless to say Josh and his company are Michigan's loss and South Carolina's gain. He is smart, friendly, and easy to work with.

Lindsay and Greg were such a pleasure to work with. They listened to our requests and took shots of every element of our event (our daughter's Bat Mitzvah). They appreciated that beyond being a celebration, this was a religious event and were very respectful of that. They also befriended a few of our friends - taking family portraits for them. That was much appreciated! The final photos we received were just outstanding. We still have people talking about the solo out door shots of our daughter, one of my daughter and wife singing together with the band, and more. I highly recommend Lindsay.

Tammy was wonderful to work with for my wedding. She kept asking me about things to make sure that I had everything I wanted captured that day. She was very discreet during the wedding and reception times which made the day even more enjoyable! I definitely would recommend her for anyone needing a quality photographer for their evet!

Theresa was aweaome and has a wonderful talent. She is super patient and quick on her feet to capture amazing pics. My very stubborn 2 week old refused to fall asleep, and got a bit fussy at times. Theresa was able to soothe her and also capture some wonderful pics of her big brother stepping in to help soothe her. I am in love with all of the pics she took of my newest addition. She also captured some amazing pics of my oldest son and his girlfriend before their ROTC Ball. I plan to use Theresa as our family's photographer for as long as she is snapping pictures.

I have had the pleasure of working with Nathan twice over the last couple of years. My husband and I hired him for our wedding, which was unique in and of itself in that it included a brunch, welcome dinner, two culturally unique ceremonies, reception, and many many friends and family members. Nathan and his assistant managed to capture every face that attended the wedding. Many photos gave us a perfect little glimpse into the moments we missed while being swept up in the day. They were edited beautifully and it was clear there was effort and intention put into the photos from start to finish. The second time I worked with Nathan was for portraits of my 16ish year old dog. She is very timid in new places and has bad eyesight. More importantly, she hates cameras and flashes. From the moment she arrived to Nathan's studio, she was calm and comfortable. She immediately acted just like her sweet funny self and Nathan made her feel safe with the camera. He also took my concerns into consideration and set up the studio in a way that did not require him to use flashes in order to capture the light for the photos. This made it easy for my dog to be at ease. Nathan even edited out a bright ball that had to be in each shot to keep my dog focused! What a trooper. Our family looks forward to working with Nathan again in the future!

      She's an incredible photographer with a true talent for bringing her vision to paper. She can make something so common look so amazing! She did photo shoots of some of my Grand daughters and put them in a fairytale world with just her camera and a few simple props!

      About

      Photography is my passion. I love capturing special and beautiful moments in a person's life. I love the fact that pictures can last forever and can be something we pass down to our children and their children and so on. I have received training from the New York Institute of Photography, but most of what I have learned has been from experience. I love natural light photography and try to refrain from using artificial light unless it is absolutely necessary. My specialties include families, children, newborns, and high school seniors. I also do weddings, bridals, and engagement sessions. I love photographing everything. It's very unusual to find me without a camera in my hand. I service around Western NC.

      About

      I love photographing people. It is my job and my passion to capture you at your best and in your own unique way. I want you to look at the photographs I take of you, your family, your event, and absolutely love what you see. I know that every single detail matters and the last thing you want to do is worry about what your photographs will look like or what your photographer is doing. Put your worries aside. It is my goal to capture your best moments and from an angle at which the photographer is hardly seen! I am your personalized wedding and portrait photographer.

      About

      My work is about who you are. It is also about that moment in time in your life that you want to capture.

      About

      As one of the very first boudoir photographers in the Asheville area I have had years of experience in this style. Many new photographers have come onto the scene and are often very talented but tend to use the traditional poses, perhaps slightly reworked yet still somewhat the same, for each woman. I do not follow those trends but create them. I build each session around the woman i am working with, creating art that is very unique and beautiful for them to treasure. I have a passion for showing the beauty in every woman.

      About

      Theresa Vandermeer is a photographic artist who uses her passion for photography to produce various pieces of works, which include landscape prints, abstract art, digital paintings and photographic prints. She is also a special-needs photographer. Her work has been showcased in international hospitals in Africa and Italy for the Healing Photo Art Foundation, as well as in local galleries. Capturing the perfect picture for Theresa is not only a form of artistic expression, but the perfect avenue where she can thoughtfully and creatively use her talents to showcase the simplicity and extraordinary beauty that she sees in the world around her. Photography has and never will be just a snap of the lens for her, but a chance to turn a single moment in time into a photographic masterpiece and work of art.
