We are husband-wife Asheville-based professional photographers. We specialize in artistic no pressure wedding photography and commercial photography and architectural photography

How it all began

Julie and I met in Asheville in 2002. The first night we met, we stayed up all night talking while she made me green tea in her coffee maker. We both enjoy hiking and being outdoors and have been together ever since that night. We always have our cameras with us to this day. In 2005 we tied the knot.


Our Business

In 2010 Will was contacted by Google to see if he would be interested in working with Google Streetview Trusted. Streetview Trusted was called something different back then but none the less it is when Forge Mountain Photography got its start in commercial photography. Shortly after joining I moved into the hotels’ team and began shooting on the Choice and Hilton photography crews. Did I mention we are available internationally? We shoot both weddings and commercial shoots anywhere in the world.

Wedding photography is our heart and soul. We love telling stories with our images, and we would like to tell your love story.  We approach weddings and wedding days as your story, not our timeline. On your big day, we are there for you and go with the flow.  We do not like to be boxed in by one style. We shoot in a photo journalist style when it is appropriate. For instance, when you have candid moments we do not influence these in any shape form or way. We try to get the best shot possible without distracting you or your guest. Our experience shooting weddings have taught us exactly where we need to be to get the best shot and we often capture these moments without you even knowing we are there. We also specialize in Fine Art Wedding photography.

We are available in Asheville, NC and worldwide. Please get in touch with us to book your next shoot using the contact form below, or you can follow us on one of our social media profiles and contact us that way if you prefer. InstagramFacebook, Flickr
