Hi, I'm Eliza! 

        I am tall and have a gold freckle in my right eye. I live with my husband, two year old son, and a rabbit named Maple, in a little old house in West Asheville. I talk to my neighbors and give lots of hugs. I've been known to write songs and appreciate a good campfire. I believe every hike deserves good snacks and every couch, a good book.

       I wear my late grandmother’s mother of pearl button around my neck. It is a daily reminder of life’s fragility & persistence. It is a small piece from a great big past. Simple & beautiful, a keepsake, a reminder. This is what I strive to do with photographs, to leave something worthwhile for our grandchildren to uncover.

I value images that make us pause, reflect, and feel connected.        

I value honest heartfelt communication.

I celebrate gay marriage and lovers of all genders.

I celebrate couples who create weddings that represent their true selves, and am honored to document and reflect their own unique love back to them. I genuinely LOVE photographing weddings! 


                                           To my fellow Ashevillans,                                                              I have lived & photographed in these stunning mountains for 15 years, and am dedicated to this extraordinary community of makers, growers, musicians, healers, & helpers. Y’all have my heart!
