Andrea + Scott | Franklin Tennessee Wedding Photographer

Back in May, I had the opportunity to shoot another wedding with Jenny Lindsey, this time in historic downtown Franklin at the Cumberland Presbyterian Church.  The rain clouds on Andrea and Scott's wedding day couldn't dampen the love and excitement that surrounded this group. As the girls got ready, it was clear that each of Andrea's eight bridesmaids had played an important role in her life and they were now so incredibly happy for their friend.
In fact, these girls went in together to get Andrea a gift she'd never forget. Something that not only fulfilled her "something blue" for the day, but also something she'd been dreaming about for years. Yes, that's right. A pair of Manolo Blahnik flats, a version of the gorgeous blue shoes Carrie Bradshaw wore for her wedding to Mr. Big in the first Sex and the City movie. The shoe box held personal notes from each woman and the amount of love and thoughtfulness of the gift brought tears to Andrea's eyes.
The tears continued to flow as Andrea's maid of honor presented her with a letter from Scott.
Andrea and Scott decided to have a first look before the wedding. This gave them a few moments together before we took photos of the whole wedding party. 
Then it was off to The Factory to dance the night away.
What a beautiful day!


Hannah + Emma | Spring Hill Senior Photographer

I'd like you to meet Hannah and Emma. Twin sisters by birth, friends by choice. Both incredibly unique in personality and style, but equally as sweet. I just love these girls so much! Lucky for me, Hannah and Emma are two of my senior reps for the Class of 2012. I'm so excited to be working with them.  

You'll be seeing more of these young ladies later this summer when we do their full senior sessions. This is when you'll hear all about their plans for the future. Can't wait!

Here's Emma:

Five Years Later | Personal

On June 17th, 2006, I put on a sparkly white dress and said goodbye to my single years, pledging my life and my love to my very best friend. Five incredible years later, we've been through one adventure after another, through heartache and loss, through life's blessings and joys - and I couldn't imagine having shared these experiences with anyone else. Happy Anniversary, my sweet husband.  Here's to many, many more years to come!

Lindsay + Kyle | Jamaica Couples Photographer

One of the things I absolutely loved about our resort in Jamaica was that it was small enough for us to meet and get to know several great couples while we were there including Lindsay and Kyle, who were honeymooning after their May 14 wedding. And after a week in paradise, we thought -  what better way to end a fabulously romantic vacation than with a photo shoot? 

Lindsay and Kyle were all for getting up with the sun their final morning in Jamaica and let me tell you...this is why I'm always trying to talk people into sunrise photo shoots. The light, for one, is gorgeous. But that's nothing compared to the calmness that comes with the break of dawn. Besides an occasional rain drop, hinting at the storms to come later in the day, the three of us had this quiet beach all to ourselves. Well, and the occasional peacock. 

I couldn't have wished for anything better. A perfect end to the perfect trip. A gorgeous couple, oh so in love with each other, willing to let this photographer capture some intimate moments between the two of them. Oh, and by the way...Lindsay and Kyle? You two make getting up at 5:30 in the morning look good

The above image is one of my absolute favorites. I looked up just in time to capture this tender moment between Lindsay and Kyle. Yes, I am a total romantic.   

Happy almost-one-month of marriage, you two!


Reagan + Justin | Nashville Union Station Wedding Photographer

I'm editing several weddings at the moment and I can't wait to share them all with you. This one is the first of many I'm shooting with Jenny Lindsey this wedding season. 

Reagan and Justin's wedding was held on a chilly April day at Union Station here in Nashville. Union Station used to be this elaborate railroad terminal back when Nashville still had passenger trains. Today, it's a world-class hotel full of historic character. And the perfect backdrop for a wedding.
Reagan and Justin are truly one of the sweetest couples ever. Their brief wedding ceremony was full of class and elegance. Afterwards, we convinced the couple to brave the wind outside to grab a few photos.
I just love the emotion behind Reagan's dance with her father. It had pretty much everyone in tears.
Before the night was over, we had Reagan and Justin head down to the first floor to get these last images. They're probably some of my favorites - a perfect way to end a perfect night!
