Fine art and destination wedding photographer and elopements by The Wayfarers Photography based in Asheville, North Carolina documenting moments all around the world.

Glad you made it here. Let’s tell your story.


Hello. My name is Alex, and I’m a wedding & elopement photographer based in Asheville, North Carolina.


Nothing matters more to me than bonding closely to the ones I love, feeling the rush of nature, and capturing stories in a way that bends the rules a little. I absolutely love to photograph humans in the elements, all over the globe.

If that’s your cup of tea, we should get to know each other. Let’s get to it!


Weddings and elopements for those seeking something new.


I’ve been documenting couples everywhere from strikingly gorgeous places to the simplest of backyards for 8 years. No where is too close or too far.


A few favorites


Here you'll find some Delightful little journeys. Sip a whiskey and enjoy.


A little bit of everything, for those short on time.

A selection of various adventures, from campgrounds in Michigan all the way to the South of France.


Rachael & Jon: Asheville, NC Intimate Adventure Elopement

Just a couple of legends creating magic, despite the large supply of water on the ground and cascading from above.


Katie & Nathan: Black Balsam Knob, NC Adventure Session

An evening washed in golden mountain light, followed by a tea-infused cabin session in my little corner of the Blue Ridge.


Jacob & Lala:

Lake Powell Adventure Elopement

When lovers exchange intimate vows overlooking Arizona’s most glorious lake, shenanigans tend to ensue.


Kate & Matt:

Death Valley Adventure Elopement

Two Aussies, a limo, a valley of death, and a stunning day that had more to do with life than anything else, really.


Hannah & Stephon:

Yosemite Adventure Elopement

Sincerity is taken to wild new heights on a ridiculous cliff. A heart-warming groom sheds a tear. Mother Nature shows off.

Elisa & Kevin:

Kauai Adventure Wedding

Four logic-defying days of gallivanting across Hawaii's most unrealistically beautiful island.

Des & Mitch:

Provence, France Elopement

A 17th century windmill & truly absurd amounts of Provencal charm, laced with a David Bowie-infused sunset.


Should we elope?

Say your vows somewhere meaningful and intimate, so you can focus more on your love and commitment, and less on what color linens should go on the tables.
