Spencer + Audrey

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

Happy 10 day Anniversary to Spencer and Audrey! In celebration of this grand day I’d like to present the first look at some of the images from their beautiful November wedding day. The Nashville weather can be quite unpredictable, and with some very chilly days leading up to the wedding day there was a little concern about temperatures. The wedding was being held at the amphitheater in the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park. But as the day broke, the temps were mild and the skies were beautiful and the last traces of fall colors held fast to provide beautiful pops of color. Spencer started the day with his groomsmen at Monty’s barber shop getting straight razor shaves while the girls stayed in making their bouquets and getting made-up. The ceremony was as beautiful as the bride and as darkness and temperatures fell, the dancing heated things up. The newlyweds and their friends put on a swing dancing showcase that was a blast to watch. Congratulations Spencer & Audrey, and thank you for letting me be part of your amazing day!

Jeff + Sandra

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016

I was thrilled to get a call a few months ago from Sandra, a long-time client in Knoxville, letting me know she had met the man of her dreams and was getting married in December. It is always a honor to be a part of these special wedding days and this was no exception. It was great to see Sandra and her family again and to meet Jeff and his family. The happiness between Jeff and Sandra was unmistakable and it showed throughout the day. After months of warm and dry temperatures, the weather finally caught up with the calendar and we were treated with a cold and very wet day, but it didn’t slow anything down, and didn’t damped the spirits one bit. The sanctuary at Union Cumberland Presbyterian Church was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The reception followed at Fleming’s Steak House. And to top things off, the rain tapered off in time for us to do a few portraits outside in front of the big Christmas tree to finish off their wonderful wedding day. Congratulations Jeff and Sandra!

Mick + Brooke

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

I recently had the honor of shooting the intimate wedding between Mick and Brooke in Fayetteville, TN on a perfect fall day. Their big day was held at the First Baptist Church in downtown Fayetteville and was attended by close friends and family. There was a touch of heavy hearts as Brooke’s grandfather, who was to walk her down the isle, passed away just a few weeks prior. In a beautiful remembrance of him, and other family members lost, one of thefront rows was lined with portraits and white roses in their honor. A dinner reception followed before Mick, Brooke and I went out exploring downtown Fayetteville for a few night portraits to cap off their magical day. Here are some of the highlights of their wedding day. I hope you enjoy!

Chris + Alyssa

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

I have been looking forward to this wedding for quite a while now. I always love the natural beauty of a fall wedding, having had my own during the fall. But also, Chris and Alyssa have become good friends over the past year during our time together at CrossFit Mt Juliet, and they are truly some of the nicest people around. They both love horses, with Chris participating in rodeos as a roper and Alyssa teaching horseback riding lessons. I was thrilled to learn she was even going to be riding in on a horse for her wedding. The wedding was held at Circle S Farms in Lebanon, TN, with the ceremony tucked away in a clearing in the woods atop a moss covered rock. With the unusually dry fall we’ve had, the fall colors were not as vibrant as usual, but I managed to make the best of what I could find for their portraits. Following the ceremony, the reception was held on site and catered by Circle S catering. A live band provided great music all night and kept everyone on the dance floor. It was a memorable day, with Chris and Alyssa surrounded by family and friends celebrating their love for one another. Congratulations!!!

Jason + Kayla

Wedding bells are ringing again, this time for Jason and Kayla and their beautiful wedding at The Mill in  Lebanon, Tennessee. Their special day was accented with purple and carefully thought out details. The Mill offered a unique setting in its restored atrium, complete with solid wood columns, beams and polished concrete floors. Their reception took place on site as well and the string lights criss-crossing the atrium made for a romantic start to their new journey in life together. Enjoy some of the highlights of their day! Congratulations Jason and Kayla!
