Do Whatever It Takes To Have Avonne By Your Side I can't believe our luck that such an INCREDIBLE artist and a bubbly, JOYFUL spirit exist in the same person -- and that she was there by our sides to document our wedding day. Avonne is incredible. She is a one-woman hype team and she will make you and your loved ones feel like the most beautiful, blessed people on earth. Thanks to her artistry, you all will look the part too. My fiance and I work as directors of photography in the film industry so we knew that not any photographer was going to cut it for us when our wedding plans changed for the Nth time because of Covid. Stumbling upon Avonne's portfolio of work stopped us in our tracks. But MEETING her, virtually and in person, was something else entirely. We gained a family member, a friend, and we just can't wait to receive the rest of our photos! At the end of the day, the photos are what will last you a lifetime. Make this investment with Avonne, TRUST ME! _ Lara
Avonne was simply amazing! She was very professional and super responsive leading up to our wedding photoshoot. On shoot day, she arrived with such bubbly energy and made an effort to get to know us so that we would feel more comfortable with each other. Throughout the shoot we were laughing and the mood was fantastic so even though this was our first time getting pictures professionally taken, we felt very comfortable because Avonne made sure of it. She'll be your own personal hype woman. I guarantee you'll love her.

There are truly not enough kind words to say about Avonné, but “outstanding” and “blessing” are a couple that easily come to mind. My husband and I are so thankful to have had her capture our wedding this past weekend! We fell in love with her aesthetic after my boudoir shoot earlier this year, so much so that we probably would have moved the date entirely to accommodate her if we had needed to. We knew the photos would be amazing, but we’re already blown away just by our sneak peeks.
She is a true artist, with an impeccable eye and genuine talent for creating and capturing authentic experiences. For example, I would have been fine with faking our first look because the area we were originally going to capture it in was not available as planned. Avonné came to the rescue and facilitated the entire experience to make sure it was 100% sincere, as well as beautiful. I’m so glad she did because those emotions would not have been able to be faked. She went above and beyond during our day to seize every opportunity for the perfect photo and even help me navigate the flow of my own wedding, showcasing her natural professionalism.
Avonné is a one woman hype team who effortlessly makes you feel comfortable and accentuates the real love within moment, while also a skilled strategic director who will guide you with the right technical moves to get the perfect shot. On top of that, she is just remarkably kind and boldly radiates positive, fun energy! Her growing collection of glowing reviews and accolades (most recently, named one of the best photographers in America by Brides magazine) are no surprise at all. You can admire her work online, but you won’t get the full joy until you work with her yourself!
My husband and I are beyond grateful to be entering our new chapter with photos we’ll cherish for a lifetime, a new friend and a family photographer for as long as she’ll have us!
Thank you so much, Avonné! ❤️
If you’re in need of photos with a personal touch, then I’m the girl for you.Avonné is a GIFT. She is an incredible talent and has a beautiful spirit — her warmth, kindness and energy are just as special as her art. She lifts you up and makes you feel comfortable and confident from start to finish. She is a true professional — dedicated and committed —and has a way of connecting with you from the moment you meet her. Oh, and she’s just a blast to be around, too! I’ve looked through our photos countless times over the past several weeks, and every time I am moved to tears. Avonné captured our day perfectly. I am so grateful for this woman and the way she documented the most perfect day. With her documentary style and impeccable attention to detail, she has a way of telling your “story” better than you could ever imagine. Thanks to Avonné, we have the most beautiful memories to look back on. Working with her was a dream, and I can’t wait to do it again for any of our family’s milestones. I can’t imagine working with anyone better. She is the BEST. -Stephanie Lopez
I had the best photographer on earth and I truly mean this. Before booking her, I looked at the galleries in her portfolio and I was moved to tears. She was the only photographer that provoked this level of emotion in me by looking at someone else's big day. Her talent is God-given.
When she arrived at the venue, I was instantly impacted by her enthusiasm and charisma. One of the first things I asked was, "Can I give you a hug?!" It is extremely special to connect with the person who will be capturing so many of the people you love in one room. Any worries about having enough time to get pictures captured were eased by her forward-thinking, experience, and professionalism. I felt extremely confident in her ability, talent, and decision-making.
Outside of her professionalism and undeniable talent, I chose her photography because I preferred a "moody" and documentary style. I felt that she checked both of those boxes effortlessly and I may or may not have spent an hour on the couch crying over my photos. I had family members reaching out saying that they were moved to tears. My makeup artist sent me a video of her crying and reacting to the beauty of the photos. I had friends and guests of the wedding reaching out saying how in love they were with the photos.
As she has said herself, "Once the dress is hung up, the flowers have died, and the cake is eaten, your photos eventually replace the memory of your day. Finding the right artist will almost guarantee that 30 years later, you will be crying at the same moments in your album that you did on the actual day."
If you were wondering if she is superwoman.. she is.

Avonné is an incredible photographer. From our first phone call months before the wedding, to the moment I said goodbye she was the most upbeat, kindest, and genuine person. A quick glance at her portfolio will show you her talent is exceptional - like her eye for capturing the raw, emotion and candid parts of the day, but it's her personality that makes working with her truly something special. No one tells you how much you will fall in love with your wedding vendors - and with Avonné, I was obsessed. We feel so lucky and grateful that she was there to capture our day and the images we now look back on, we will cherish forever.

“Amazing! I contacted Avonne 2 weeks before my wedding when my previous photographer bailed. Her work and professionalism was amazing and the pictures were even better! My friends and family raved about the quality of her work and her cheerful demeanor. I would definitely use her again and would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. Loved her and her work!” -Carmen & DeShawn,2018
From start to finish Avonne was so incredible to work with! I fell in love with her work —like any normal person would; but from the moment we began talking on the phone to our in person experience, her energy was just amazing. This is not a quality that should be underestimated in choosing a photog because it really makes all the difference. She’s beyond professional and her eye is, of course, incredible; however, it’s the things you don’t see in the picture or on the paper that really make the true difference between working with her and someone else. Hands down I would work with her again and pay every single cent required. No one better!
-Drs. Karl and Brittany Lozanne, 2019
Avonne is not just an amazing photographer, but also I wonderful woman! My wedding day would not have been the same without her. She has such a free spirit and will not only make you look like a model but make you feel so loved. She is an artist that has perfected capturing raw emotion in such a natural way. Our pictures are something we will cherish until we are "incredibly old" per my husbands vows. They tell our story in such a beautiful way. Spend the money on great pictures from a great person, they are worth it for so many reasons.
-Maddie & Benn Scruggs, NC 2019
“Avonné is the best of the best in the business. She is truly passionate about what she does along with all her couples, and it shows in her photos! My husband and I had both our engagement photos and wedding photos with her, and both times she blew us away. Not only is she unbelievably talented, but she is also an incredibly joyful person to be around. My husband who really doesn’t like taking photos is always comfortable around her. Avonné’s energy and personality never failed to makes us laugh and never made us feel fake or posed! Also, her professionalism with quick responses to your inquiries and e-mails was amazing. You will not be disappointed with the end result as her photos are a work of art. Would work with her over and over and cannot recommend Avonné Photography enough!”
- Megan & Joe,2018
I don’t think I can even begin to put into words the love I have for Avonne!
I could write for hours a review for Avonne but I will try my best to keep it short n sweet!
I’ve worked with Avonne 3 times but I will mainly speak about the wedding day photography.
Without a shadow of a doubt Avonne is so amazing right from the get go, she is so organised and professional, but with a charming and friendly personality to match. She makes you feel at ease, doesn’t get in the way of the wedding day stress and even helped me make sure I had my little bag packed for the day! I can’t even begin to talk about the pictures! I’ve only seen a small handful so far but I am truly blown away, me and my partner aren’t super amazing behind the camera, but she really just gets you!
She made us feel so special and it’s so amazing to work with someone that is so dam passionate about what she does!
We were so blessed to win Avonnes services in a competition and we are so thankful that she picked us! Seriously seriously book this lady and you will not regret it!
-Tabitha & Ash, United Kingdom 2018
If I could give Avonne Photography 10 stars I would! I believe that Avonne is the best photographer in the Charlotte, NC area, hands down! She was such a calming spirit on my special day. She is the perfect blend of fun and professional. The pictures she took told the story of my wedding day and for that I am so grateful! Thank you so much for our beautiful photos and for being such an integral part of our wedding day! - Hannah & Daniel
