Natalie and Josh ~ Engagement Session

We got to know Natalie and Josh incredibly well even before their engagement session because we took a weekend trip to Chattanooga with them to go SKYDIVING! It was incredible, but I’ll save those details for another blog post…the important thing was that we became instant friends with these two and now we have a super fun time anytime we are around them! This was a real treat for us because by the time they were in front of our cameras they were already comfortable enough to make fun of us, which of course made for LOTS of laughing photos. I’m a pretty easy target anyway, but that’s old news. So, we started their engagement session at Dogwood Park which is where Joshua popped the question to Natalie. She of course said yes which brings us to these photos :)

Then we travelled to Jackson County for the rest of their session. The Bull & Thistle Pub is a FANTASTIC restaurant nestled in the Gainesboro Courthouse Square, and it’s another important spot for these two, so we ended the night with shots of them there, and then stayed for the most incredible filet I’ve ever eaten – so delicious!

Jessica & Mark – Wedding

Jessica and Mark’s wedding day was everything we hoped it would be: a gorgeous and laid back couple; great weather; fun bridal party peeps; a precious ceremony and OMG the dancing! I’m not gonna lie, it was H-O-T outside, but we had a blast capturing this story and this couple who we’ve grown to love.  From the moment we stepped inside the church and felt the excitement in the air to the very last goodbye, there was always something around us that was special to this couple. My words can’t do it all justice, so I’ll just show your some photos :) Jessica and Mark, we can’t thank you all enough for letting us seal these memories for you.

Ok, these shoes? I die!
Then we hopped the trolley and rode with these party animals from Brentwood to Franklin’s Carnton Plantation – such a beautiful place – and the ride gave us a chance for some photos on the go!

Brandon’s shot – my favorite of the day (especially considering he stuck his camera out of a trolley window with passing cars to get the shot!)

What a great sport Jessica was! More cowbell!

Hillary & Justin – Wedding Day

Every now and then we come across something we will remember always – this wedding is one of them. Never before have we had SUCH amazingly sweet guests and family that made us feel so welcome and so honored to shoot the occasion. Now, don’t get me wrong – we love ALL of our couples and have had a blast with so many family members and guests, but there was just something different about this wedding where we left with full hearts and sore cheeks (from smiling so much, of course :)

We travelled to Ashland, Kentucky for Hillary and Justin’s wedding. The drive was beautiful, and we arrived the afternoon before the ceremony. Because Hillary and Justin opted to keep things simple and not have a bridal party, the rehearsal was a breeze and the (might I say awesome and very talented) coordinator was at the church decorating for the next day’s event. Although we knew Hillary, we had only met Justin once before, so we had dinner together and after a few alligator stories, we felt like we had known them for years.

Their wedding day started out more quietly than most – both the bride and groom had very few people around as they spent some time getting dressed and prepping for their vows. Brandon and Justin walked around downtown Ashland for some portraits while Hillary, her best friend, mom and I listened to music while putting on the finishing touches.

The ceremony was beautiful and meaningful, as always, but this one had quite a bit of humor to it, which was so fun to witness. After the ceremony, Brandon and I followed the newlyweds to Kentucky’s gorgeous version of Central Park and finished some gorgeous portraits there. The reception was, as expected, AMAZING and so much fun. The guests all truly enjoyed themselves and we snapped away as the dancefloor was bumpin’! We loved every minute of this couple’s wedding day and can’t wait to see them again soon!  Much love, Hillary and Justin!

Abbie & Hunter – Engaged

Thinking about Abbie and Hunter’s session, one word comes to mind: Laughter! I swear we must have laughed a good 80% of the session. But that is so them. These two are such a FUN couple – Hunter knows how to make Abbie laugh and she really knows how to bring his personality out – they are such a great match, and you can tell they are best friends through their photos. We loved getting to know them more as we trekked up Bee Rock and set up their hammock, enjoying the beautifully sunny day we had. Then we stopped by a massive field that was absolutely perfect for the rest of the session – and pretty awesome light at that. Hunter plays several instruments, but brought his banjo along for a unique look that helps capture their relationship. Laughter and banjos, there you have it!  We are honored to get to capture their wedding in December and get to know their sweet family in the process.

Tamara and Brent – Wedding

Tamara and Brent’s wedding day couldn’t have turned out better. Gorgeous weather and blue skies covered us as we spent some time for portraits outside at the McKinney home in Gordonsville. This bridal party was spunky but handled the warm temperatures like true wedding champions, and we got some lovely shots in the beautiful setting. The ceremony was precious – and Tamara and Brent got married in the exact spot Tamara’s parents married years prior. We had a blast with this couple and their guests, dancing under the amazing indoor tent atmosphere they created with their creativity, patience, and lots of fabric. They transformed the armory into a dream reception spot, and you could see it in Tamara’s eyes the whole night that it was exactly what she had hoped for. Mr. and Mrs. Davis, we are honored to have captured your special day, and we hope to have smores with you again this fall!
