Boone NC Wedding & elopement photographer

My name is Jessica (aka Wayfaring Wanderer) and I'm a Boone NC Wedding & Elopement Photographer based in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. I'm known for capturing the spirit of the folks I photograph—the expressions, gestures, and details that are outward expressions of our innermost selves.

I love working with couples who are committed to travel, adventure, and laid-back lifestyles. I specialize in photographing destination weddings here in the mountains of Boone, Blowing Rock, & Banner Elk, NC. I love adventuring in the outdoors and my couples are adventurous, too!

If you think we might be kindreds, I invite you to explore the website and learn more.

"Tucker and I both are really excited about how these turned out. Especially the ones with little Asher. Thank you for putting us at ease and making the experience so fun! You are one of the most easy-going photographers I've ever been around. And I've been to and been in my fair share of weddings. For two people who aren't very good at taking pictures and haven't come up with a go-to pose, these are wonderful! I cannot wait to "heart" and share my favorites with friends and family!"

"I just had to quickly tell you how thrilled we are with the photos! They look so natural and the scenery truly looks beautiful. These photos are exactly what I was hoping for when we first started planning a fall mountain wedding :) we are so thankful for all your hard work that day and we wouldn't have wanted anything to be different! Now we just have to figure out which ones we want to have printed! Thank you so much!"

"We are so happy with the photos. We love how you captured the whole evening and the essence of the event! There are so many wonderful photos! We loved working with you, you made us feel so at ease while taking the bride and groom photos. You really captured how happy we were, as opposed to more "posed" and forced smiling. Thank you again!"
