Colby: Colby was born in Vermont, though he’s spent most of his life here in the Western region of NC. He picked up his dad’s old Canon 35mm camera to document his adventures with in high school, and his obsession with photography has steadily gained momentum ever since. Colby got his degree in Technical Photography from Appalachian State University and now splits his time between shooting weddings, photographing news and events, and documenting the world around him. Colby also enjoys exploring new places, bike riding, swimming holes, and anything new and interesting. He is a regular contributor for the Asheville Citizen-Times.
Philip: Philip spent his childhood years in South Carolina where he couldn’t put down his mom’s Polaroid camera. After outgrowing that, his dad passed on one of the classic Canon cameras of the film days. His natural curiosity for photography and art led him to the Academy of Art University in San Francisco where his talents continued to grow. During his years living in Alaska, Philip photographed weddings all over, including ones from the top of snowy glaciers to the top of gorgeous mountains. Philip is continually praised for his hard work, professionalism, and friendly personality. When Philip is not shooting, he enjoys playing piano and guitar, 4-wheeling, and spending time with close friends and family.
Joe photographed his first wedding as a professional when he was 16 years old. While working for a company in the Detroit area, his boss recognized his eye for photography and asked him if he’d like to try shooting weddings. Armed with his Pentax K1000, he went with seasoned photographers as a “second-shooter” and very quickly established himself as one of Michigan’s leading wedding photographers. By the time he was 19, and going to Western Michigan University full-time, he was already shooting an average of 40 – 50 weddings a year. He has been in extreme demand ever since.
Joe now has his main residence in Anchorage, Alaska, but travels quite often to the south-east during the colder months to visit us, ride his bike and escape the cold weather. Nick and Maddy were lucky enough to have Joe photograph their wedding (“The Girl on the Red Bench”) and have been best friends ever since. Nick and Joe have been a team on quite a few photography shoots over the last 8 years and continue their photography relationship today. He is available for weddings in the “Lower-48″ from October to April.
