We are delighted to introduce Adrienne Fletcher Photography to the SnapKnot family! A high-energy wedding and portrait photographer, Adrienne specializes in contemporary wedding photos. Her mission is to capture real life by creating a genuine experience that allows her to photograph authentic emotion, real beauty and true spirit.

“I suppose my style could be classified as photojournalistic or contemporary but a lot of what happens on the day of the session has to do with reading my clients’ style and personality and finding ways to inject it into how I photograph that day. I have a background in fashion photography so I can shift in that direction, but I also love quirky vintage looks and can drift to that style as well.”

Contemporary Wedding Photos by Adrienne Fletcher PhotographyA few fun facts about this North Carolina-based photographer? She loves the outdoors, the feel of soft grass on bare feet, walls with interesting textures or colors, nerdy jokes and good cheese. And when she says she loves cheese, she really loves cheese.

“It’s a little ridiculous but there’s nothing more fun than going to the cheese section of a store and picking out what cheeses I’m going to try out for the week.”

Adrienne is also an avid triathlete. She has only done 1/2 Ironman’s but is working up to do a full at some point.

She is related to some amazing photo conservators and was passed along her parents’ old film camera at a young age- which she still uses to this day for personal projects. What really opened her eyes to photography, though, were the works of two separate but equally talented photographers: Irving Penn and Sebastião Salgado.

Right about the same time she had two back-to-back experiences that were very moving to her, looking at portraits they had taken. She came across both of the photographers’ works unexpectedly and was immediately entranced by the image that they had taken.

“It wasn’t just a reflection of that person mirrored on a page, it was as if life itself was radiating from the fibers of the print. It was amazing. Ever since it has always been my goal to capture life in the moment in my images, not just make pretty pictures.”

She will always be a big fan of Annie Leibovitz, Leibovitz, Bernice Abbott, Julia Margret Cameron and Sally Mann as well.

“I find that studying portraits of more classic artists is very inspiring for wedding photography and finding ways to show people from a very genuine point of view.

Adrienne’s favorite wedding memory occurred as the couple was taking their vows. The groom was very nervous and had just been given a confidence nod from his best man, so when he was supposed to repeat “I take {name of bride here} to be my…” he said the name of his best man instead. “We all died laughing,” Adrienne reminisces. “He had to start over and try again- this time with his bride’s name.”

She highly recommends that every couple get an album or at least some beautifully framed wall portraits done from their wedding.

“These days everyone wants the digital images, which is definitely cool to have, but make sure you do something with them. Your photographer works hard to create beautiful art for you, take advantage of it to decorate your home or to create your first family heirloom as a couple! So many people are using photographs of their parents’ or grandparents’ to decorate receptions but then not having their own wedding events framed or put into an album for future generations to enjoy.”
