I have had the absolute joy of knowing Brittany since elementary school. And I’ve had even more joy seeing her become a momma and fall in love over the last few years. I photographed her sister’s wedding in Nashville, TN right when Conner (her’s and Josh’s son) was born. Soon after that, Brittany and Josh […]

Newborn Photos I got to photograph James and Kaitlyn’s wedding a couple years ago in Tullahoma, TN. When they contacted me to take newborn pictures of their precious Ellie Kate, I of course jumped at the opportunity. Like I’ve said on here many times, one of my favorite things is documenting my couples’ lives, not […]

The Standard I cannot tell you how much I love this venue! It’s a very tough decision to say if I love it or Jackson Terminal more. I think the indoor options at the Standard are better, but I think the flow of Jackson Terminal is better. They both provide almost the same backdrops for […]

Douglas Lake KC and Tyler chose some pretty amazing locations for their engagement session. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, my FAVORITE places to shoot are the places that are totally unique to my couples. In this case, we went to KC’s family’s lake house on Douglas Lake. It was gorgeous. Their […]

They have multiple ceremony sites… the one used below is Sarah’s Glen, which is nestled back into the woods with towering trees all […]

Jackson Terminal Raquel and Garrett got married at a gorgeous church in downtown Knoxville and had their reception at Jackson Terminal.
