Here we go!! I LOVE this time of year because my TWO favorite blog posts go LIVE! Every year I sit down and go through all of my absolute favorite images from the entire year and put them all together in a big blog post. First up, my favorite engagement photos! I'm completely overwhelmed by the love and support I have recieved this year. I can't help but feel so blessed to literally have the best couples in the whole world. This year has been full of changes, and I'm so thankful...

I had an absolute blast with Shanon & Jonathan this past weekend! We went to one of my favorite downtown Nashville locations and it couldn't have been anymore perfect! These two were naturals in front of my camera, and were willing to go along with all of my crazy ideas! When I asked if they were okay with lying on the ground for an idea I had, the didn't even hesitate! I have the best couples, and when they are on board with anything, I'm so thankful!! They are getting married...

I adore Carlee & Harrison! They have been in front of my camera several times now, and I wouldn't have it any other way! You may recognize them because I had the opportunity to capture their big day a little over 2 years ago. They got married on a perfect October day, and to this day, their wedding is one of my personal favorites! When Carlee reached out to me asking if I would take their pictures I was SO excited! They are always a joy to be a around, and plus, they brought the...

I met Hannah & Sean through one of my 2016 brides, and I'm SO thankful I'm the official photographer for their big day this coming October! Hannah & Sean have been to the Jack Daniel's Distillery many times before, so they thought it would be the perfect location for their session! The event planner was so kind in allowing us to photograph around the property after close, and even drove us around in a golf cart so we can go to every location! It ended up down pouring the moment...

I CANNOT wait until these two get married next year! Every time we talk about their wedding I cant help but get so excited, because I know EVERYTHING is going to be STUNNING! I had a BLAST taking their engagement photos this week in Nashville. Brandy mentioned they wanted to photograph at the War Memorial Auditorium and the pedestrian bridge, and it couldn't have been anymore perfect. We had a perfect summer day, and it ended up raining about 30 minutes before our session start...

I had the best time photographing Rachael & JB's engagement session! We met each other for the first time the day of their session, and we ended up as friends by the time we said our goodbye's! I instantly knew I would adore these two from the moment we greeted each other. They are SO kind, full of joy, and completely in love. They were up for anything, and every time I asked them to frolic or dance they always expressed their love for those things! We started our session at Arr...

I loved getting to know Alana & Booski during their engagement session last weekend! They currently live in South Carolina, and drove to TN to spend time with family and have their pictures taken! There was a 100% chance of rain the day of their session and, because they don't live close, Saturday was the only day we could photograph. So, even though it rained the majority of their session, they still were full of joy! Alana even decided to ditch her shoes and spend the entire t...

I really enjoyed getting to know Kelly and Levi during their engagement session! They are both very active and love playing softball, which is so wonderful! We originally planned on taking their engagement photos at Arrington Vineyards, however the moment we arrived I noticed the vines were BARE! This meant for a very spontaneous change of plans, which ended up working out for the best! We drove to Harlinsdale Farm, and it ended up being a perfect location for them. I'm so thank...

I met Kate and Andrew through one of my sweet 2016 brides, and I am SO excited to capture their big day this April! We had originally planned on having their engagement session at Radnor Lake, but it ended up being super crowded because of the gorgeous weather, so we spontaneously made our way to Leiper's Fork! I fully believe it was for the best because it was the PERFECT location for them! We even found a blooming Dogwood Tree, which sent me right into a photographer's paradis...

I have been friends with Jessica for almost 10 years (time sure does fly!), and Ryan has been friends with Ben for even longer than that! Our friendship circle is actually a pretty funny story - who knew we would one day marry each others best friend and then end up living across the street from each other?! I could get into all of the fun adventures we had over the years, but I want to keep this blog just about these two! It's amazing just how perfect they are for each other. I...
