Open Aperture Photography's profile image

We're here to hold your hand...

Weddings are stressful and confusing. We're here to help you with the entire process: before, during and after your wedding day. We do everything from recommend other fantastic vendors to help lay out your wedding day timeline. I constantly tell our clients and I'll tell you too: We're here to help! What can we do for you?

What we aren't: We're not the photographers who just show up on your wedding day and ask where we're supposed to be. We're not some strangers who just keep following you around on your wedding day. We're not so one track minded that we only focus on the final product. It's about the process and experience that go into making amazing images.

By the time that wedding day arrives, our couples don't think of us as "the photographers." They know us as Bob and Amanda, which is how we like it.

Bob Mackowski of Open Aperture Photography says "Jodie’s bridal portrait took place at her wedding venue, Rose Hill Plantation in Nashville, NC. The shoot featured her horse, Lucy, and her dog, Sasha. We were in a race against the weather for most of the shoot as it looked like the skies would drench us at any point. The rain held off and we were able to catch some great portraits."
