• It's Our Passion To Capture Your Story In A Way Only A Photography Can...LINDSAY & BRANDON

The act of choosing which images to blog from each wedding is daunting. We deliver hundreds of photos from our hours spent with each couple and when we look to share those in a way that tells a story, it can be tough to narrow those images down. And then on top of that, every year we torture ourselves with the task of showcasing the highlights of EVERY wedding and EVERY engagement session from the year.

It’s so so hard, y’all! Why do we do this to ourselves?

Because it’s worth it, that’s why.

As tough as it is, we truly love going back through and scanning galleries for nuggets of gold – some large and already have been shining bright, and some smaller that may have been overlooked at first glance. It’s not only a good way for us as photographers to look back over our work as a whole and gauge our progress, but it also shows you, our followers, what an amazing set of clients we have and what kinds of special moments we are privileged to witness.

This year, along with some beautiful portraits, I wanted to pull more “moments” to share with you. More intimacy, more emotion. More of those seconds that our couples won’t ever have again. Except that now, they will. Because it was captured. Those minutes and hours of wedding day go SO FAST and it’s easy for sweet glances and tight hugs to fade away into a memory. But our job as photographers is to snag them from history and keep them as treasures for our clients. So that when our bride sees that photo of her grandma hugging her, she remembers the smell of her perfume. And when our groom sees his face in the shot of his bride walking toward him, he remembers all his feelings jumbled up in his throat. It’s why we do what we do. It’s important.

Yes we love beautiful portraits, and you’ll see those in here because that’s what we all want to see, but this year, slow your scroll and see if you can FEEL some of these images too.

2018 is already looking like another wonderful year and we are excited to have a calendar quickly filling. Until then, Enjoy!

We’ve known Anna for years. She’s one of those people that is easy to be with, instantly makes you feel like a friend, and makes you laugh constantly. We’d known about her boyfriend but only met him once before he proposed. We knew Anna would choose a great person to spend forever with, and our engagement session certainly was a test for this fella who doesn’t like photos AT ALL. He passed with flying colors, did all that we asked and more, and trusted us completely. The result was photos they loved, and a happy bride-to-be. Fall is a tricky time of year for photos, because the weather has SO much power over us. Could be hot, could be freezing. Could be windy or so rainy, causing leaves to change or not change color or drop too soon. It’s all up in the air. Literally. So, when these two opted for a November engagement session we braced for the worst. And yet, it turned out to be THE BEST. We lucked out with perfect weather, a touch of cool, color still around, and calm winds. The best part was the sunset. We started in downtown Carthage for a small town homey feel and then popped over to Turner Farms, Anna’s family property, to see where the wedding might be and to finish up some lovely portraits. We scoped around and played until the sun was PERFECT, and then the sky gave us a show for the end of the session. It was a great end to our season of engagement sessions, and we are super anxious for these guys to shine once again next October for their wedding.

If you could pick the PERFECT fall day for photos, Hannah and Andy did. It was slightly cool with the most perfect fall leaves and sunshine. And I’m so glad, because these two are the sweetest! They brought along their almost four year old daughter and we were able to smooze her into some photos before too long. We loved our time with these three, walking the grounds of the Saltbox Inn and Stables and finding the most perfect of colors as our backdrops. You’ll see these two trust and love each other completely, and their precious daughter is, without a doubt, the apple of EACH of their eyes :)  We look forward to their May wedding, where these trees will be green and just as lovely, but not as lovely as this bride and groom!

A few weeks back we had the pleasure of shooting photos for Madison and Logan. Recently engaged after a long period of dating, they are finally :) planning their wedding amid school and work. Madison works at the beautiful Hermitage Golf Course while in dental school, and since Logan is also an avid golfer we decided it was a perfect spot to not only fit their personalities but also to show off the fall foliage. The weather tried pretty hard to kick us out, with sprinkles, wind and cool temps; but we prevailed and got some beautiful shots of this couple despite the dreary skies. You can tell just how in love they are in this set and how much he makes her laugh – always a great recipe for a lasting marriage. We look forward to watching them commit to each other forever and start their own life together.

Hannah and Justin have a sweet and unique love story. They are lovers of nature, which is fitting as they live in the beautiful east Tennessee mountains of Sevierville. They love to travel and they appreciate the arts including photography and distillery. Another thing, besides each other, that they love, is their dog Scout. He followed us around throughout the engagement session and couldn’t have been cuter – posing super well for photos and even photobombing some like a pro. We had a wonderful day with these two and we love the way their love and respect for each other is so quiet and sweet but still so strong. We enjoyed a perfect fall day with a golden kiss of a sunset that was just right without taking over the show of course :) Here are a few favorites from our afternoon getting to know Hannah and Justin.
