When we initially planned their engagement session Chelsey and Drew wanted their photos taken at Percy Warner Park at “The Allee” at the Belle Meade entrance just outside of Nashville. So on the day of their engagement session I had planned on arriving at the park a little early to check out the location and plan where we are going to take their pictures. However a few hours before their session Chelsey sent me text asking if we could change the session to Drews family farm in Fairview. It was totally fine since I live in Fairview but I have never seen his farm before so I had no idea what to expect. Once we arrived at their engagement session location I was greeted by Drew who seems to always be smiling. He told us where they were thinking we should take the photos and told me about the props they had brought as well. We made a plan and started shooting. The locations they had picked out were great so I was able to easily capture some great shots of the two them. Not only were the locations great but they were so easy […]
I loved hanging out and shooting Ginny and Johns engagement pictures. They were a really fun couple and I am excited to be shooting their wedding at Cj’s off the square next month! For their engagement session we decided to take a few at Cj’s off the square. I love their venue so we ended up spending around 45 mins just taking shots in the back of Cj’s. Afterwards we walked down the street and took a few other photos in the area. Cj’s is in Franklin and is literally off the square so it is a great location. Then we went to another location near the Factory at Franklin at a farm to take a few more photos. This was a last minute idea just to take a few extra shots at this new location I found recently so I wanted to try it out. This also gives Ginny and John a few different locations for their engagement photos. Here are a few from their engagement session. Let me know what you think!
I am excited to be shooting Cayla & Wes’ wedding in a few months. Last weekend we hung out and took some fun engagement pictures at their wedding venue (Milkyway Farms) and a few other locations. I really love how they turned out.
What happens we you run in to some of your favorite clients on vacation in Aspen Colorado? PHOTOSHOOT! I shot Leslie and Taylor’s awesome wedding last year in Atlanta so I was thrilled when I found out they were going to be on vacation the same place and time we were. For me it is like the best vacation you can imagine. I got to be on vacation in a really cool place and also have models to take photos of at those really neat locations. So once I got there I sent them a text asking if they were down to hang out and take some photos one day. They were all for it so this happened: We had a lot of fun! It started snowing pretty heavy about 20 minutes into our shoot so we had some snow flakes in the photos. We also had to watch our step because you would sink about 2-3 feet in snow which was funny actually. Although the visability on the mountain (Top of Buttermilk Mountain in Aspen) was limited that day we were able to get some pretty neat shots. I actually kind of like that the mountains in the background ended up […]
Summer & Wayne were awesome during their engagement photo session. They kept us entertained the whole time. Saying they nailed their session is an understatement! I may be a little bias but I LOVE their engagement photos. I am also glad they want me to be their Nashville wedding photographer! The Corners on the River It was a long ride to their engagement session but it was totally worth it. They wanted to have their engagement pictures taken at their wedding venue: The Corners on the River in Readyville, TN. It is about an hour away from where I am located in Fairview. This gave me plenty of time to jam to some of my favorite music on the way. I have never shot at The Corners on the River but I have shot a wedding at Old Spencer Mill which is right down the road from them. During their engagement session Summer mentioned that the same owners own them both so we can shoot at both locations if we want. I arrived about 20 minuets early and checked out the venue. I was a bit overwhelmed because there were so many great spots to take photos. I always ask myself “What is the obvious shot […]
