Hi I'm Amy...

‘I have been specializing in Asheville wedding photography and Asheville portrait photography for 8+ years, and have had the honor of meeting and photographing so many amazing humans (and quite a few four legged friends as well!).  Outside of photography, I love spending time with my family, mountain biking, local restaurants, delicious veggie foods, all the cool breweries, traveling, and exploring!

Asheville is such an amazing city, and I am so grateful to be based in a location with breathtaking scenery that never gets old and always looks a little bit different depending on the season, the clouds, the light, and the moment.’

 

'The end result of good photography is not just a picture but a work of art.  I do not believe in creating the same images over and over using different people.  I believe that everyone deserves a unique experience and images that are uniquely their own.  Life offers new opportunities with each passing moment to uncover uniqueness, beauty, or a deeper understanding of our surroundings.  For me, photography is a means of expressing my interpretation of such moments, sharing my perspective, and encouraging others to look deeper and find their own unique moments.'

ART. LIFE. LOVE.

No adventure is too big or too small, no moment unworthy.  I will be there for you as you walk down the aisle at your wedding.  I’ll photograph your first kiss, first dance, and all of your friends and family standing with you at the altar.  Beyond that, I’ll capture the tears in the audience, and the moment that the two of you realize that you really did it… you are actually married!  I’ll be there to photograph pregnancies, adoptions, anniversaries, adventures and milestones.  And you will never regret having those images.

I specialize in Asheville portrait photography and wedding photography, although I am also available for travel.

“Amy helped to make our day absolutely perfect.  My husband and I had so much fun celebrating with our friends and family, and Amy did a great job at capturing everything!  The photos were a mix of portraits and casual shots of the party.  The mixed style was cool – the shots of the wedding guests really showed us how much fun everyone else was having!  The pictures of the wedding party and bride and groom were artistic and absolutely beautiful.  Amy is a really talented photographer!  To top it off, she is super sweet and we had a blast hanging out with her for the day.”

“Amy is great to work with!  She photographed our elopement in 2017, and she was not afraid to get muddy or wet to get photos in the beautiful waterfalls and streams in Pisgah National Forest.  We went back to Asheville with our daughter for our anniversary and contacted her to take family photos at the last minute (literally the day before).  Amy was extremely accommodating and agreed to take our photos.  We loved the photos!  I will definitely book her again when we travel back to Asheville!”

“Amy Haynes truly has an artist’s eye for getting the best shots!  She did two sessions for my small business marketing materials and website, and it has made life so much easier to pull photos from that collection as needed.  Amy’s friendly and sweet demeanor also makes her easy to work with; she helps people feel comfortable in front of the camera.  If you have a business, you need quality photographs!  I highly recommend talking to Amy about your vision and letting her use her talent to tell your story through photos.”
