I adore this sweet family! I have known them for quite sometime through shooting their photos. They braved the cold weather and we made some beautiful family photos happen! Their adorable boys are growing up so fast. They are cutie pies! I can’t wait to see them again in the future.
Swooning over here about Taylor and Franky’s wedding. It was a rainy October day but that didn’t stop us from making beautiful magical photos. Their wedding was held at Black Fox Farms. The colors were stunning outside as we have had a beautiful Fall season here in Tennessee this year. The wedding was held inside the beautifully decorated barn that is so enchanting. Just before guests starting arriving the rain cleared so we were able to shoot photos outside in the crisp Fall air. There was a beautiful overcast of clouds that gave off stunning light to everyones pretty warm skin tones. Taylor the bride was breath taking as she walked down the isle. Her dress truly was made just for her. A favorite in my eyes! After vows were exchanged and the kiss Taylor and Franky made their way down the isle into the reception where everyone ate, danced, laughed and had such a good time. It was my last wedding of the 2017 season and it was a beautiful one! I am so glad they chose me to document their gorgeous day! Congrats Franky and Taylor!
I have known Brooke since she was a junior in high school. That is when I shot her senior school portraits. It is always a cool feeling when you get a phone call a few years down the road asking if you can do another photo shoot for someone. Especially when it was one of your seniors who is now going to be getting married! Which in this case would be the beautiful Brooke!
Brooke & Justin were married on August 4th 2017, at Tennessee River Place . It was a perfectly beautiful day. The forecast was calling for rain but luckily we never saw any the entire day. There was beautiful sun shining down in the valley in between the mountains along the rivers edge. Everything was lush and green around the venue. There was laughter through out the air as the day unfolded.
Brooke and her bridesmaids were the perfect image of bohemian, whimsical land mermaids. They all wore their flower crowns and each dress accented the next perfectly with the colors ranging from pale blushes, creams, tans, whites and greens. Justin and his groomsmen were tucked away in the grooms sweet hanging out and having fun. Each one wore bright colored fun socks. Before Justin and his groomsmen went out to take photos they said a prayer and all gathered around Justin. You could feel a peace come over the groom and a calmness as if God had his hand on everyone in the room. It was such an awesome moment during the day just to stop and pray and thank God for all he has done for Brooke and Justin through out their lives and leading them up unto this point.
The ceremony was in the early evening. Flower petals aligned the chairs that were sitting in the grass along the walk way. Verses from the bible were written on wooden signs all along the isle. Guests arrived and took their seats and the ceremony started. The brides maids and groomsmen were flawless. The flower girls were so effortlessly adorable and Brooke was breath taking. As soon as Justin put his eyes on her he lit up like the morning sky line. Their vows were exchanged and I do’s were said. Broke and Justin sealed it with a kiss and their adventure as husband and wife had begun.
The reception followed after the ceremony and it was memorable for sure! The mother son and father daughter dance was a huge surprise to all guests when they had a choreographed routine to music. It was so fun! Dinner was served and open dancing began. Laughs echoed into the night air while music bumped late into the night. So many memories were made on that wonderful day. The night ended with a sparkler exit into a limo. Congrats Brooke and Justin! May you live happily ever after!

I have known Brittany and Daniel since high school. When Brittany hired me to shoot her wedding I knew it was going to be beautiful and fun! I shot Brittany and Daniels engagement session at some gorgeous locations on their family’s property back in the earlier part of the Summer. They were so easy to work with during that time. I was so excited for their wedding day to arrive. Their wedding was in August and it was a warm Summer day with rain in the forecast. They are huge Tennessee football fans so of course everything was decked out in the most fabulous shade of orange. YAY! GO VOLS! Hair was done, and make up was finished, Brittany’s dress fit her to a T! Perfection. Happy tears were shed, vows were made and I do’s were said. After the ceremony the rain started pouring but passed within minutes. There was an overcast sky and a slight breeze which set the mood for perfect bride and groom portraits! There was amazing food, cakes and drinks galore. It was a celebration for sure! Everyone danced the night away. I couldn’t be happier for Brittany and Daniel! Congrats to the 2 of you!!!!
Andy and Meredith were married on a warm summer day in June. The wind was blowing and green was everywhere. A perfect day in the south! Meredith put a lot of time and details into her wedding day. She had an awesome wedding planner which helped a lot. She kept everything on track. Her name is Cheryl Hyland with Blissful Moments Wedding & Events. Meredith and her mom got ready at a darling little log cabin up on lookout mountain. Sheets were hung to dry outside in the warm sunshine. What a peaceful place! Meredith had some of the most beautiful flowers I have ever had the change to photograph. Their florist was Fox and Fern. Her brides maids were dressed in purple flowing dresses. Light and airy! Andy and Meredith exchanged their vows and said their “I do’s” at The Church Of the Good Shepherd on lookout mountain. They had a reception following the ceremony at the Lookout Mountain Fairyland Club . Everyone ate, laughed and danced the night away. It could not have been more perfect for these sweet souls! Congrats Andy and Meredith!
Jill and Parker’s wedding was far more beautiful then I had ever imagined. The 2 1/2 hour drive up to the mountains of Clayton, Georgia was beyond worth it. I would drive hundreds of thousands of miles to capture beauty like this. The chemistry Jill and Parker have is so sweet. They are real, really in love! Their love is authentic and romantical, light hearted and sweet. Their love is what I believe everyone in life is looking for if they haven’t already found it. Jills laugh is infectious! The way Parker looks at her when she smiles and laughs made my heart so dang happy, y’all! Watching the day unfold behind my lens made me once again realize I am so in love with my job and what I do. I feel blessed that this couple chose me to document such a beautiful and important day in their lives. Really! I’m a lucky gal!
Jill and Parker were married at the Waterfall Club in Clayton, Ga. which sits on the top of a mountain over looking Burton Lake. The air was crisp and light on this beautiful day in May. The wind blew through the trees and clouds just to make it perfectly comfortable for the day. Jill’s dress was delicate with tiny sparkle details. Parker wearing a tux that he looked so snazzy in. Their ceremony and reception was intimate with close family and friends by their sides to celebrate with. Jill and Parker said their vows, their “I do’s”, ate mouth watering foods, delicious sweet cake, and danced the night away. The details throughout the day just show how much time and love was put into making this day perfect for Jill and Parker. Both of their families are amazing. Such sweet people. Each and everyone of them. By the end of the night I think my second shooter and myself wanted to be adopted by them! People and weddings like this make me love my job even more than I already do. Congrats Jill and Parker! May you live happily ever after you beautiful humans!
I have known Dawn for quite sometime, I’ve been shooting her and her dogs photos for 5+ years now. When I got the call that she wanted me to photographer her wedding I was so excited! To find out it was a destination wedding in Saint Augustine, Florida made me just jump for joy! I was totally so excited about her wedding day. I have dreamt about shooting in magical towns(at least I think its magical) like Saint augustine.
Dawn and Rand were married on a beautiful Saturday in April. They were married at the Bayfront Marin House Bed and Breakfast. It was so adorable and the staff working their were absolutely amazing to myself and my second shooter. Dawn and Rand said they wanted to do a first look so I chose a cobblestone street that was lined with old buildings that seemed to have so many stories inside their wooden bones. It was beautiful to say the least. The ceremony was at 3pm, it was small and intimate, Dawns dogs Honey and Bough were also a part of the wedding party. I love those sweet fur babies. That’s my kind of wedding party! After the ceremony we walked the streets of Saint Augustine shooting photos of the bride, groom and wedding party. We drove to a gorgeous street called Magnolia Ave in Saint Augustine, Florida. Those trees took my breath away along with the photos I shot there. SWOON!
We ended the night at the King Fish Grill where the reception was held. The food was deliciously mouth watering. The service there was perfect as well. Views of the bay and boats were so relaxing and romantical. I can’t say enough good things about this couple, their family, friends and entire wedding. It was a dream come true of mine. I feel so honored have been hired to document such a monumental day in Dawn and Rands lives. Congrats Dawn and Rand! May you live happily ever after sweet souls!
