from our couples

We might just be a teensy bit biased, but we have worked with some of the most beautiful people around. So thankful that we have been a part of so many wonderful special days! Here's what our fabulous couples have to say;

Veronica and Jeff were simply wonderful! The entire process was smooth and efficient. Veronica was accommodating, responsive and super sweet in all interactions leading up to and through the big day. She assisted in preparing a list of family photos, which was so helpful given the size of my family; even catching some photos I would have missed! Payment was a breeze (and totally affordable). The photos came out just as we were hoping! I am not the most comfortable in front of a camera and they did such a great job helping me to relax. My husband and I wanted more of a photojournalistic/candid vibe and Woven Strands did not disappoint. The photos are magical!! We are so happy we worked with this amazing husband/wife team for our wedding day and you will be too!

When we were searching for a wedding photographer, we continued to run into the same issue - I kept trying to picture my now-husband and I posing for these highly editorial shots and that’s just not us! Woven Strands was perfect for what we were looking for. I loved Veronica and Jeff’s aesthetic, featuring natural settings and more natural moments. We had our wedding at my husband’s grandfather’s home, and Veronica immediately recognized that it was a place so special to us. She and Jeff completely captured the essence of the house and the grounds on which we hosted the ceremony and reception.

The pictures are stunning but not at all fussy, which was exactly what we wanted. They understood that I didn’t care to micromanage any part of the process and took charge just knocking out all of the getting ready shots. I never once worried that they might not be capturing something we wanted them to! They moved around the ceremony and reception with ease and navigated changes to the schedule seamlessly. They were also pros at “reading the room” and knew exactly how and when to readjust when none of the family members stuck around after the ceremony or when my husband was just completely over posing for pictures!
On top of that, Veronica has been extremely accessible and communicative. Our pictures were delivered exactly when promised and exceeded our expectations. Thank you, Veronica and Jeff!

The photos we got from Veronica and Jeff are everything we wanted and more! They authentically capture the joy we all felt on that day. What I really want to share is how wonderful Veronica and Jeff are and how great our experience was. To give a little background, our wedding was very small (40 people) and super simple (we decided to skip a lot of the traditional stuff). Veronica and Jeff worked with us to create a photography package that fit so perfectly into our simple wedding. They were more than willing to accommodate requests, work closely with us to ensure we got everything we wanted (which we did), and just be there for us if we needed them or had any questions at all. Throughout the entire evening of our wedding, they were so flexible and made me feel so worry-free. To be honest, I was a little unsure how having two photographers at such a small event would feel, but it ended up feeling like they were long time friends of ours and it was in no way too overwhelming. Veronica is so upbeat and made me (and my husband, who doesn’t like to be in front of the camera) feel so comfortable as we were taking pictures by talking to us and allowing us to act naturally. It is evident that Veronica and Jeff truly have a passion and love, not only for the photos they take, but for the people in those photos. They are kind, sincere, and so much fun to be around. We could not be more pleased with the photos and the experiences we got from Veronica and Jeff, it was a blessing to have them capture our day!

The most important thing I cared about for my wedding was the photos. I wanted to be able to look back years later and look at the photos and remember my amazing day. It meant a lot to me to have photos of all my family as well since family is so important to me as well as we don’t get to see each other often.

I fell in love with Veronica and Jeff the first time we met and they always made me feel comfortable. They are very talented and very easy to work with. They love what they do, which you can totally see when you meet them and are genuinely amazing, down to earth and awesome people. Their work is indescribable and we could not be more pleased with our lovely photos. They caught exactly what we wanted which was the beauty of having all of our loved ones in the beautiful mountains.

If you are looking for a wedding photographer, you better go ahead and snatch them up. You get two very talented photographers for a great price who are willing to do whatever you want to make your day the day you want and capture the photos you want to have later down the road.
Thank you guys so much!!!! We are so blessed we found you and will cherish the photos for years to come of our perfect day.

Veronica and Jeff were amazing! Before even meeting them I fell in love with the amazing details and moments captured in their portfolio. After meeting them I fell MORE in love with the awesome people that they are. They made us feel completely comfortable and not awkward at all. They were beyond accommodating of all of our requests, no matter how big or how small. The engagement pictures, which we were totally unprepared for, they somehow made look so natural and really captured our quirkiness. I cannot wait to see more of the wedding pictures because the sneak peeks were AMAZING! Will recommend again and again and again. Look forward to working with them again in the future!

This review is long overdue since we had the pleasure of working with Veronica and Jeff for our wedding in October 2017. There are simply not enough words or time to describe the fantastic experience we had working with these two. We wanted our wedding pictures to capture the authenticity of the day, very in the moment, and the outcome was GORGEOUS! Not only do our pictures describe our day perfectly, but Veronica and Jeff were seriously the sweetest, most joyful couple for this job. When I was behind schedule prior to the wedding ceremony, Veronica was there to lend me words of encouragement and reassurance that we would get all the group pictures directly after our vows, and we did! My husband, who is never too keen on a bunch of pictures, loved how quickly they were able to capture all the shots. We had a large wedding party of 26, which is a lot for even two photographers to take on, but Veronica and Jeff were able to round everyone up and did so with ease and so much kindness. I had the pleasure of meeting both of them in July 2017 for my bridal portraits. I knew at that moment that these two were the real deal. Not only are they professional and fun, but they captured the unexpected moments, which allowed us to truly relive our wedding in real time with all the emotions. We are forever grateful to have had the opportunity to have worked with this vivacious, loving couple for our wedding.

I can’t even begin to tell you how AMAZING these two are to work with! Communication and planning was so simple with Veronica! She is so kind, calm, and professional! We loved spending time with her and Jeff downtown before our wedding getting some super special photos! They blended right in during the ceremony and made sure to get all the photos we asked for before so we could relax and enjoy our day! I haven’t even seen our final photos but I’m confident they are going to blow me away. The most important thing is both Jeff and Veronica feel like friends after just a few moments of meeting them. They made us feel comfortable and relaxed and everyone at the wedding loved them! I’m telling you now stop looking around and book these guys right now, you won’t regret it!!!

Veronica and Jeff were amazing to work with! The Blue Ridge Parkway was actually shut down due to fog for our initial session and Veronica worked with us to schedule a session the very next weekend. We felt comfortable with them as soon as our session started. They talked us through everything and made posing very natural. It basically felt like it was just my fiancé and I laughing and having a good time together. The Parkway was very crowded on the day of our shoot, and they easily worked around that and found perfect spots and scenery. Our pictures are more beautiful than we could have ever hoped for, and I would recommend Woven Strands to any couple or family looking for a photographer!

I can’t say enough good things about Veronica and Jeff. They are everything you want in your photographers for your big day: professional, reliable, artistic, genuine, fun to work with, and they produce amazing work in a timely manner. We couldn’t have been happier with our decision to hire them and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for high quality photos to cherish forever. Look no further these guys are the best!!

When I first began looking for a wedding photographer, the two things that my husband and I for sure knew we wanted were good pictures (duh) and affordable pictures. I wrote down some names, checked out some websites, and then I happened across Veronica and Jeff’s Woven Strands Photography. As soon as I began browsing through their website and reading reviews, I just knew that I had to have them photograph our wedding. There was just something about their pictures... the standard, posed photos were beautiful, but there were candid photos, as well. In all of their candid photos, the couples looked so happy and in love. That’s when I realized I wanted someone who could capture those moments. Someone who paid enough attention to the couples they work with so they could get those special, little moments. And, they did just that! One of my favorites is a picture of my husband and I laughing after our ceremony, they caught us looking so happy and excited! Aside from the amazing pictures, they are incredibly easy to work with and have great communication. I can be rather shy and was quite nervous to get my picture taken, but they gave great instructions and it was like having a friend take our pictures. They also go above and beyond for their clients. We had planned some pre-ceremony pictures on the Blue Ridge Parkway at one of the look overs. When the last bits of Hurricane Irma crashed through Asheville, Jeff and Veronica (a few days before the wedding) decided to do a drive by of the lookout and discovered it was closed. They were able to locate another lookout that was open and close to our venue. I can’t even begin to describe how thankful I was that they thought to check it out in advance!! The whole experience of working with Veronica and Jeff was outstanding.. through the communication leading up to the wedding, working with them the day of, and our pictures. We’ve been married almost four months and I still get teary-eyed looking at the lovely photos that they took.

You guys are just the best. Thank you for capturing the spirit of our day—it is amazing to see “us” come across so clearly in these photos.

While planning my wedding, I knew absolutely nothing about what I wanted for the big day, with one great exception. I knew I wanted to do whatever it took to get great photos, and I knew I wanted Jeff and Veronica to take them. When they agreed to make the trip down to Florida for us, I was ecstatic.

If I was excited just finding out they agreed, imagine how I felt when I GOT THE PHOTOS. They were absolutely everything I wanted! Jeff and Veronica captured everything I requested and more. Plus, they made pretty much everyone look extremely photogenic. Some of my photos STILL bring me to instant tears — not just the burning behind your eyes kind of tears, but the blubbery sobbing kind — because of how perfectly they captured my favorite moments.

If you’re on the fence about choosing a photographer, choose Woven Strands. These are two of the kindest, most pleasant and lovable people you will ever meet. They’re creative, but they pay attention to what you want and what makes you feel most comfortable. They will listen to you, encourage you, guide you, and make you look awesome. What else could you possibly ask for?

We got married June 10, 2017, and so this review is long overdue. One of the best decisions we made in our planning process was hiring Veronica and Jeff. Not only were our photos gorgeous, but they were so patient, easy to work with, communicative, and just genuinely nice people. Highly recommend!

We met with a few photographers and right away Veronica and Jeff stood out to me. They were young, which concerned my now husband, but the were very attentive to our story and what we wanted as well as excited and eager to help us capture our story. That personality piece was very important to me. The other couple we met with was slightly older and had been published in fancy magazines. They were great photographers, but when we met with them, I didn’t feel that connection. It felt like just another job to them. So we chose Veronica and Jeff and are VERY pleased. They were super professional and easy to work with (we are also laid back so that probably helped). They worked with us to plan the timeline and details, yet didn’t control things and let us have our say in what all we wanted captured. We had an rustic/woodsy venue and a big family/friends wedding celebration and they captured it all beautifully.

The photos are gorgeous and we are so proud to share them with friends/family and excited to post them around our home. Definitely recommend!! Thanks Veronica and Jeff!!!

Hiring Woven Strands Photography was the best choice I made during the wedding planning process. From my first conversation with Veronica, I knew she understood my vision and wanted to know my expectations, hesitations, and ideas. Once Veronica and Jeffrey arrived I was immediately excited to see the pictures they would take. They were both so present and passionate about our wedding it truly felt like they were guests. Ultimately, once we saw the pictures we were even more thrilled with the work of Woven Strands Photography. I couldn’t be more pleased and would jump at the opportunity to recommend these photographers!!

I can not say enough about Jeff and Veronica! They are such a kind and sweet couple whose photography really reflects that! I just recently received my wedding photos back from them and I am beyond happy with how they turned out! They completely captured every single detail that made our day so special and showed the pure happiness and fun that everyone had! They really take pride in their work and it shows through their pictures! I would recommend them 100x over!! If you are looking for a fun-loving, easy to work with couple who captures the beauty of your wedding, then you found it!!

Outstanding interaction in both the formal photographs and the action ones. I’ve been to many weddings and have never seen photographers work so hard, move so much, and look so happy.

I could not have been happier with my photos! Veronica and Jeff captured every special moment. They were flexible and so easy to work with during our engagement and wedding day photos. They do an awesome job scheduling and providing the client with the best photos possible. I cannot even begin to explain how blessed and fortunate we were to work with these amazing people and photographers. I HIGHLY recommend them for future couples and families. Thank you guys

Veronica and Jeff were AMAZING!! From the moment they arrived at our venue until the party was over, they were continuously taking pictures and capturing all of the special moments (and even the smallest details) of our wedding day. I knew from the moment Veronica walked into our bridal suite that we had made the right decision in our choice of photographer. Even my makeup artist commented on how involved she was! Our pictures were incredible and there were SO many of them. During your wedding planning stages when you hear people say that a good photographer is the best investment you’ll make, they are 100% correct. We could not have chosen better photographers.
