Chase + Maria, pt. 2 | Franklin Wedding Photographer

As promised, here's part two of Chase and Maria's gorgeous backyard wedding that I shot with Jenny Lindsey. If you missed part one, you can find it here.

Maria was one incredibly sunning bride and her dress fit her to a "T".
Her eight (yes, eight) gorgeous bridesmaids had purple strapless dresses and each carried a single flower - a perfect combination for a summer wedding.
The entire bridal party was so much fun, helping Chase and Maria relax and enjoy the moments leading up to their wedding.
Now for the gushy stuff. I'm a complete romantic at heart, which is probably why I love shooting weddings so much. However, I can usually keep my emotions in check while I'm working. This time? Not so much. The moment the music started playing and the first bridesmaid turned the corner, you could just feel the presence of love and anticipation from everyone there.
Seeing Chase's face as he watched his bride come down the aisle was enough to get the tears flowing for just about everyone there. His was a look of honesty. Of joy. And of pure love.
Then, add in the wedding service itself, as the pastor spoke about Chase and Maria's history as a couple, their faith and resounding love for Christ, and the many ways the two of them have blessed the lives of everyone around them - both individually and as a couple. There wasn't a dry eye in sight.
Chase and Maria had their first dance as husband and wife as the sun was setting.
Maria's dance with her father was incredibly touching. Partway through, they asked all the other fathers there to join them on the dance floor with their own daughters. Chase's dance with his mom ended in the same fashion.
Then it was on to the celebration! Maria, Chase and their guests danced the night away. I can't imagine a more perfect ending to such a joyful day!
Thanks again, Chase and Maria, for letting me be a part of your special day!


Chase + Maria, pt. 1 | Franklin Wedding Photographer

I promised you a wedding on the blog this week, so I'm making good on my word. Sort of. I shot Chase and Maria's intimate backyard wedding with Jenny Lindsey and I have to say that it's been one of my favorite weddings this summer. There were so many details and personal touches with this wedding, that I can't put it all in one post. So I'm breaking it up into two. Ready for part one?

Chase and Maria's wedding was held on an extremely hot Saturday in June at Maria's parents home in Franklin. Maria's parents took the money that they planned on spending on the wedding venue and used it to redo their entire backyard. Not only was it the perfect setting for their daughter's wedding, but now they'll have a lasting memory of this perfect day. You'll see more of the backyard in part two.
Maria made one truly gorgeous bride. She was completely relaxed and laid back all morning, laughing and spending time with her eight (yes, eight) bridesmaids.
There was even time for a special father daughter moment as she was getting ready.
The details were endless for this wedding. Everything was so thought out, from the blessing tree to the fan programs, all the way to the yummy cupcakes awaiting the guests at the reception. Chase and Maria really thought about every single detail and the results were beautiful.
So what's up in part two? Well a gorgeous bridal party for starters. Then Chase and Maria's touching ceremony. And perhaps even a teary-eyed groom. I can't wait to share the rest of these photos with you.


Amy + Pete | Nashville Christ Church Wedding Photographer

This wedding season has been such a incredible blessing that I am just now getting Amy and Pete's elegant affair up on the blog. This is another wedding that I shot with Jenny Lindsey, this time at Christ Church in Nashville. Not only was Christ Church the perfect backdrop for Amy and Pete's special day, but it has also played an important role in Amy's life. Amy's parents got married at Christ Church 25 years ago and her older sister married there 10 years ago. Throughout the years, the people at Christ Church has loved on this family so much that there was no question to where Amy and Pete's wedding would be held.

Amy and Pete decided to do a first look before the wedding. This is not only a great choice time-wise, but there's nothing better than capturing a few quiet, intimate moments between a bride and groom before friends and family rush in to celebrate the day with the couple. Amy and Pete's first look was no exception.
The wedding cake was absolutely stunning, but the groom's cake was really what caught everyone's attention. Pete's mom made him a fish cake out of...wait for it....rice krispies. You can't even tell, can you? She did such a good job.
There was a photobooth set up at the reception, which is always so much fun.
Congrats, Amy and Pete! Thanks so much for letting me share in your special day!


Lily | Spring Hill Baby Photographer

Born Easter weekend, Lily is the precious little daughter of Joel and Rachel. It's hard to believe she's four months old already! I've been able to spend a lot of time with Lily since she's been born, but this time I went with camera-in-hand. A July thunderstorm kept us inside for the shoot, but we were able to catch some great window light in their sunroom. Lily was the perfect little model - we couldn't have asked for anything more. So adorable!


Andrew + Nolan | Franklin Baby Photographer

We've waited a long time for these little boys to arrive. From the moment Emily announced her pregnancy, to the discovery that she was having twins, all the way to their miraculous birth story...every step of the way has been an incredible blessing to Jason and Emily. Now that Andrew and Nolan are finally here, I can't imagine two sweeter baby boys being given to two such deserving parents. 

A while back, I got together with the four of them for a brief session on an incredibly hot July day. I have no doubt that there will be more photos to come...perhaps during slightly cooler weather. Here are just a few of my favorites:
Welcome to the world, Drew and Nolan. We're so glad you're here!
