Choosing Frantz Photography was a no brainer. Joe and Ashley are so down to earth and kind, it's silly. We loved their real life, organic, artistic style and that's exactly what we wanted for our wedding. During the planning process, it was so easy to work with Joe and Ashley. We discussed our timeline, pictures that we had to have, and overall, we built a fun, professional relationship with them. The day of our wedding they arrived promptly and scoped out the property as there was much to work with at our venue. We felt so comfortable with them in shooting our most treasured and intimate moments. It was such a thrill to see pictures posted on social media within a day or two after our wedding. Longing to revisit our wedding, the photographs took us right back to the day. I think I cried for about half an hour after first viewing them. The artistic placement of our hands and bodies, the use of light and reflection made our photos absolutely breathtaking. We are so excited to see our full wedding photos in a few weeks. Do yourself a favor and have Joe and Ashley photograph your wedding, you won't be sorry.

Planning a wedding it's a beautiful yet equally stressful process. Looking back at all the difficult decisions made, I recognize that much like saying yes to my husband, saying yes to Joseph + Ashley came organically, stress-free. I found them by chance one morning and upon glancing their online galleria, I knew their artistic expression went beyond clichés. This to me was of prominent value because, in some way, their art reflected what my husband and I represent as a couple.
It is said that 2.3 million couples tie the knot every year. However, for each and every one of us, our day is second to none. This notion is Joseph + Ashley’s Modus Operandi. To say they provided individualized services is a terribly simplistic way of conveying how we were treated. Instead I’ll say: Lake Lure has held many weddings, but that night, Lake Lure transformed itself and mirrored US. Our wedding album transcends the venue and depicts our character. Every shot reveals something unique about our self, our love, and our families. This could not have been possible without Frantz Photography--Joseph + Ashley took the time to know and understand us which resulted in remarkable portraits.
Another important factor worthy of mention is how much I appreciated Ashley’s availability for random consults and input regarding things outside the contracted jurisdiction--i.e. bridesmaid dresses, hairstyles and makeup, etc. In other words, future Brides, not only will you have a photographer by your side but you’ll gain a beauty/fashion consultant available when you need her most. Last but not least, Joseph + Ashley took the lead in putting out the inevitable little fires that appear on such occasion--many of which I did not notice due to their subtle and immediate problem solving. In sum, and for the sake of brevity, I will finalize by saying: if you are reading this with much contemplation, know that your search is over. You have found the Ones!
