About - Blue Cottage Creative


Simply put, I just love photographs.  Capturing a moment in time, creating a memory, creating art, evoking emotion, or just seeing an event from a different perspective...I feel a certain magic in that.  My goal with Blue Cottage Creative is to bring my appreciation for the craft to your family or event and to give you images that you can truly appreciate in your own way.

My name is Joe Bruno, and I have been taking photographs for over 20 years.  As a student in 1993, I borrowed my dad's camera and lenses for a semester-long trip to Central America, and I carried that camera just about everywhere.  That is where my passion for storytelling with photos was solidified.

I live in Asheville, North Carolina with my wife - also a photographer, dancer and gardener - and our walker hound, beagle, miniature dachshund and tabby cat.  We love life in Western North Carolina and enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds us...including this space that inspired the Blue Cottage Creative name.

I have 20 years of customer service experience, and I like to make my clients happy above all else.  I appreciate the arts and diverse cultures, I play the upright and electric bass, and noodle around on the guitar and fiddle.  I'm also a soccer player and a huge fan of the game.
