Wedding Photographer in Asheville NC ~ Angela Stott Photography bio picture
  • Thank you for visiting my blog!

    I’m Angela Stott, a photographer based in North Carolina. I have a satellite base in Southeast Asia in Bangkok, Thailand where I find myself at intervals. I travel for weddings and portraits wherever they take me.

    I’m granted the honor of photographing many beautiful weddings, couples, families and children who entrust me to make artful records of the special moments in their lives. I have such an amazing job and I’m grateful for the passion I have for my work.

    I’m also a mother and a native of NC. We moved back from distant places in 2007 to be near family and we are loving the Southern life again.

    Enjoy your time here perusing the blog and check back for updates often. Also, dig back - there is a lot of work to see and it’s worth visiting the buried pages. Full weddings are featured here, magazine covers, book and blog features, awards and testimonials….etc. Explore the menu at the top of the page for these. At the bottom of the page you'll find categories highlighting various wedding venues and locations such as Biltmore Estate weddings, Berry Hill Plantation weddings, Virginia Beach weddings and Asheville weddings to name a few.

    If you want to see a comprehensive portfolio of my work then please go to the Angela Stott Photography website. You can also find me on Pinterest and Instagram as Angela Stott. I encourage you to please feel free to pin, like, share, tweet and follow!

It was a gorgeous winter day with the most perfect light and a lovely couple, bridal party and guests.  After getting ready at the ALOFT in downtown Asheville, the wedding party took a trolley for a traditional Grace Episcopal Church wedding in Asheville, NC.  Grace Episcopal is a beautiful stone church set on top of a hill overlooking the busy street of Merrimon Avenue.   It wasn’t hard to find the perfect setting for portraits of Logan, a Charleston SC bride, and her bridesmaids. Logan’s father was drawn to happy tears when he saw his beautiful daughter for the first time in her wedding gown. The ceremony was full of heart and beauty and Logan and Lawton emerged from the sanctuary so very very happy – married at last!  Be sure to visit all of the previous blog posts featuring Logan and Lawton’s wedding journey: Logan and Lawton’s engagement portraits, Logan’s bridal portraits (Part One and Part Two), and the first wedding day post. And come back for more!  The day continues…
