Hey, I’m Rodney Smith. I am a wedding photographer based in western North Carolina. Western NC is made up of a many small communities and towns with a few larger cities and is often chosen by brides as the perfect place for a destination wedding. Our towns include Banner Elk, Beech Mountain, Blowing Rock, Boone, West Jefferson, Newland, Crossnore, Linville, Linville Falls, Marion and Asheville.
Let me be the first to say, “Welcome to the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, the most beautiful place on the planet!” I’ve been able to call Avery County home since I was born and have lived in the same community all of my life…so I could be a little biased.
I enjoy traveling and seeing other places–especially many of the beautiful National Parks in the American West–but it’s always great to get back home to North Carolina.
I’ve had a camera in hand since I was a kid. One looked looked like Mickey Mouse! Kodak Discman cameras were also a lot of fun. I was introduced at the age of thirteen to the Canon EOS 35 mm camera line in 1987 when my sister, Sharayah, was born. After several decades of photography, I officially opened Rodney Smith Wedding Photography in May 2016.
If you plan to get married in the NC mountains, congratulations! You have picked a beautiful location. These are my stompin’ grounds and I know them well. Let me know if I can answer questions or be of help to you!
