"Things aren't all so tangible and sayable as people would usually have us believe; most experiences are unsayable." -Rainer Maria Rilke
Hi, we're so glad you're here!
We are Conor and Alise Taggart, a husband and wife photography duo based in Asheville, North Carolina with roots in Ireland. This business stemmed from our desire and passion for wanting to visually capture the narratives of life and love with a focus on genuine moments, honest emotions and a strong sense of place. Our intent is to naturally capture the story and feel of the day.
Conor is from Belfast, N. Ireland and Alise grew up outside of Atlanta, GA. Like all classy love stories start, we met at a bar in Belfast in our early twenties when Alise was traveling around Europe. We were engaged after five months, got married shortly after and settled in Belfast for five wonderful years. During those early days, Alise dabbled with the idea of venturing into photography as it has been a passion of hers for many years. However, fate had other plans and she instead started her own event design and planning company where Conor quickly learned more about weddings than he probably cared to at the time! He was soon frequently road tripping coast to coast with Alise for weddings and during those travels around Ireland his passion for photography grew by capturing their memories and experiences along the way. A few years ago we were asked to capture the weddings and special occasions for close friends and family members, from that point on we have been hooked knowing it was something we wanted to pursue together. With a transatlantic move at the end of 2016 we found ourselves like fish out of water and have spent this last year adjusting to our new life in The Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina.
We enjoy spending quality time with our loved ones, exploring the great outdoors, taking long road trips, listening to oldies, binging on Netflix and laughing until it hurts. We live in Asheville, North Carolina with our two dogs, Fionn & Arnie, and two cats, Penny & Margot. We live to travel and will happily journey to wherever you are celebrating, no destination is too far. The name 'No Other Love' comes from the title of the song (by Chuck Prophet) we first danced to at our wedding.
