I met Caitlin and Sean at the 2016 Bridal show. They booked with me in the summer of 2016 and then we shot their engagement session in the Fall of 2016. Their engagement session was held in down town Chattanooga Tennessee. We also drove up to sunset rock and shot some pretty epic portraits there as well. By far one of my favorite engagement sessions!
Fast forward to July 2017 which is when their wedding was. My second shooter and I loaded up the car Friday morning and hit the road to shoot Caitlin and Sean’s wedding in Indiana. I love a good road trip! I marked a few things off my personal bucket list on this weekend get away! On the way up we stopped at the Louisville, Kentucky horse track known as Church Hill Downs. It was SO COOL! I was in heaven. If you know me you know my love for horses. Caitlin and Sean got married in a little town outside of Indianapolis settled in the middle of corn fields. You know those fly over states Jason Aldean sings about… YUP! That’s where we were. It is normally a quiet little town but their wedding date was July 2nd which was 4th of July weekend. So the town as a hopping!
We arrived into town late Friday night and got up early Saturday morning to get that day started at their wedding venue The Barn At Kennedy Farm. It was BEAUTIFUL. Corn fields surrounded us with mature trees that gave amazing shade and set the scene just perfectly. A cool breeze swept through the air which was nice on a July day. Caitlin arrived a little later after we explored the venue and shot detail photos. She was just glowing when she got there. She gave her girls her gifts and then was swept upstairs to step into her fairy tale dress. SWOON! That dress was MADE FOR HER! Gorgeous. Later Sean arrived hung out for a little bit and then the bride and groom gifts were exchanged. It was beyond sweet. I was literally wiping tears from my eyes at the site of both gifts because of Caitlins and Sean’s reaction. Their love for each other is so special. The thought and time put into each other! I adore it. I do.
Caitlin and Sean did not have a first look. They kept it traditional and saw each other for the first time walking down the isle and it was perfect in my eyes. The bride and groom exchanged vows and had their first kiss beneath big oak trees tucked away at the back of the property. After the important part was over the dinner was served and reception fun began! Toasts were given, cake was cut and some sweet dance moves were made on that dance floor! At the end of the evening as they made their grand exit under sparklers the limo was pulling up and fireworks exploded into the night sky. It was truly an amazing day! I loved their wedding. A true fairy tale! Congrats Caitlin and Sean! I am so very happy for you.
I have known Mary Margaret and Jonathan since they booked with me last year for their May 2017 wedding. We shot their engagement session last Fall in 2016 and it was absolutely stunning. Cloud coverage for days with a storm rolling in. Crisp Fall air. I just knew from their engagement session that their wedding was going to be amazing. The love these 2 have for each other is like a love story. I was right. It was! Mary Margaret and Jonathan were married on a beautiful May afternoon in Chattanooga, TN. The girls bridal party got ready for the wedding at a hotel in the heart of downtown Chattanooga, TN. Once Mary’s hair and make up were finished and her dress was slipped on Mary Margaret and SBP photographers headed up to Lookout mountain to shoot their first look and private vows before the ceremony. Jonathan was at the park awaiting his future brides arrival. He was smiling from ear to ear! This was so very special. Their first look was held at a secret little park tucked away by a wooded rocky bluff with a quiet creek running down the side of Lookout mountain. It was small and quiet. There was sunshine and cloud coverage with a light breeze on the side of a bluff view. Perfect location for this sweet couple. Once the first look was complete and private vows were exchanged (and I, Skye wiped my happy tears) the rest of the bridal party joined us at the park to shoot their portraits. With time to spare we all caravanned down the mountain to The Peyton Venue where the ceremony and reception took place. I personally enjoyed their ceremony because it told the story of how they met up to thus point which brought them in front of their closest family and friends to say their “I Do’s” and celebrate such a wonderful day and future life together as husband and wife. Jonathan kissed his bride and the party began! The reception was accented with bronze, golds, pinks and silvers. Wooden chairs with white table clothes gave it such an elegant yet simple airy feeling to the evening. Super fun family and friends at this wedding! It was so heart felt and I personally wanted to be adopted into their family. Congrats to Mary Margaret and Jonathan!
Brad and Shereen were married on a beautiful June afternoon at the foot of Lookout Mountain. Their ceremony and reception was held at Stratton Hall. Shereen looked like a bride from a magazine. Stunning from head to toe. Her dress fit her like it was made just for her! The wedding day atmosphere was fun and full of love. The venue was decorated with copper tones, golds and lovely hints of lush green florals that accented pale pinks and tans. They said their vows and danced the night away. Their bridal party had some dance moves that had everyone laughing. Brad and Shereen danced to a Michael Jackson song that turned everyones heads and I’m sure had a few in awe of their chemistry. I am so happy for this week couple! Congrats Brad and Shereen!
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!
I have known Tanner and Allison for about 8 1/2 years now. When they asked me to shoot their wedding I was honored and so very excited! I knew Allison’s vision, details and plans for their wedding were going to be like no other wedding I’ve shot before! I was right! Simple little details I’ve not seen at other weddings made my photographer heart skip a beat! They are such sweet souls this couple. They were high school sweet hearts that will now be together for the rest of their lives. It’s almost like a fairy tale or book you would read about. They were married on a beautiful Fall afternoon at Black Fox Farms in Cleveland, TN. The sky’s were a bit overcast with a cool breeze flowing through the enchanted properties trees and plants. Tanner and Allison were married under a big tree that is nestled next to a farm house and beautiful pond. Their ceremony was sweet, sincere and beautiful to say the least! The reception was held at the same location inside the beautiful barn decked out in white lights, wooden floors and gorgeous rich colors. Southern style food was served and everyone danced the night away with family and friends. I could shoot weddings like theirs ALL DAY LONG. It was perfection! It was the last wedding of my 2015 season and it was wonderful. It reminds me of why I do what I do. Weddings like theirs make me love my job even more than I already do. Congrats Tanner and Allison! May you live happily ever after!
I met Erin in the 2015 Pink Bridal Show in downtown Chattanooga,TN. She set up an in person consultation with me and that is when she told me I was the photographer meant to shoot her wedding. WOW! Do you know how that makes me feel in my profession. I was so happy! Erin & Robert were married on a Fall afternoon in October in down town Chattanooga, TN. Their reception was held at the Mill of Chattanooga. The sky’s were overcast and there was a cool breeze in the air. It was a beautiful day! Erin and Robert have such sweet souls! Their families, bridal party and friends were all so kind to me. There was love, laugher, happy tears, and tons of memories made! I am so thankful to have been able to document such a beautiful day in their lives! Congrats Erin and Robert! I wish you all the very best!
