UNCA Botanical Gardens Engagement Session by Paola Nazati Photography

While Lydia and Mark were in town doing some wedding planning, we decided to meet up over at the UNCA Botanical Gardens and do an engagement session. We got lucky with the weather, it was a beautiful day! Here are some of my favorites from our hangout.

Asheville Backyard Wedding by Paola Nazati Photography

This backyard wedding is very special to me. The bride is one of my very first clients from back in 2010 when I officially launched my photography business in Asheville. We have both kept up with each other throughout the years and when she approached me about her small wedding taking place in her backyard I was all smiles. I am always so honored and grateful that clients enjoy my work and personality and choose me to be their photographer during important moments in their life.

The day had started out very rainy but as soon as it got close to their ceremony time the clouds began to part, the rain turned to a small drizzle and soon the sun started peaking through the trees. Here are some of my favorite images from the day.
