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

Shelby & Sean – Wedding

Sean and Shelby are some of the most fun people to be around. Their sarcastic playfulness and quick wit makes their company even more memorable. But they truly do have a love and respect for each other that was obvious on their wedding day. On a hot summer day at the Cedars of Lebanon State Park in Tennessee, we spent the day with them as they prepared for becoming husband and wife. With friends and family by their sides, we laughed and watched as they truly enjoyed one another’s company. Take a look at some of the moments that make their wedding so special.

 

Their first look was adorable. With gift in hand, Sean waits for his bride. They wrote each other letters and then turned to see each other before opening the gifts. The moment they turned around, all nervousness vanished and it was all smiles the rest of the day.Here, we have two of our other couples! Alicia and Matthew on the left, whose wedding we shot last year…and Alyssa and Jarod on the right, whose wedding we will shoot next year. I love the relationships we’ve gotten to build.

Crissy & Shane – Engagement

Crissy has been a dear friend of mine for a very long time. Since college, I’ve prayed along with her for the right man to come along that is worthy of her hand in marriage. She has been so faithful, so patient in her search for him that she wouldn’t even seriously date anyone who didn’t measure up.. So last year when I heard she was dating a guy, my heart began to well up with excitement and curiosity. When we met him something inside of me just knew – he was so caring, so considerate, and yet so FUN – he had to be the one! When she announced he had proposed, our hearts were so glad for her – and for him, because she’s QUITE the CATCH!!

We were honored to be a part of their story, even in a small way, by doing some engagement photos for them at the family farm where they will be saying their vows. Although we hate that we can’t be with them to celebrate on their big day, we will be wishing them absolutely nothing but the happiest and most prosperous marriage that they both so richly deserve. I know these two will serve and minister to the world together, and I simply can’t wait for those long phone calls when Crissy calls to tell me how amazing it is!

Big hugs to you both, Crissy and Shane, we are so incredibly happy for you!

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!
