I’m super stoked to share Keri + Adam’s wedding with you guys. They got married in September in Afton, Tennessee. Their wedding was at Hidden Meadows. It’s always such a pretty place for weddings. It was  hot and sunny day because this is Tennessee and you really never know what kind of weather you’ll have.

Keri told me before her ceremony that the only photo she really cared about was a photo of Adam as she was walking down the aisle. She thought that he would have a great reaction to seeing her and, boy, was she right. I don’t think there was a dry eye as Keri walked down the aisle. It was so sweet. They also done a foot washing ceremony. It was such an emotional part of their ceremony, and I loved it.

I’m currently booking 2018 + 2019 weddings and engagement sessions. If you’re getting married, holla.

I’m offering something I haven’t offered in several years: STYLED CHRISTMAS MINI SESSIONS! Over the past two years, I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had time to sit and design a styled session.They take a lot of time to get together. You have to have an idea, find everything that works with your idea, draw it out, put everything together for a trial run, and, finally, you get to do the mini sessions. After that, I would end up with tons of images to edit and get out before everyone sent their Christmas cards each year. In East Tennessee, fall is prime time wedding season. I’m usually booked every weekend with weddings in September and October. Tennessee is gorgeous during the fall and it’s no longer 500 degrees and humid here so it’s perfect for lovely outdoor weddings. I digress… what I’m getting at was it was hard to fit those sessions in year after year. This year, I decided I HAD to do some Christmas mini sessions. Raven needed Christmas photos. We’ve purchased his Christmas photos from his pre-school photos every year because those have been the only Christmas photos he’s had taken. Lol. Don’t get me wrong. I will continue to buy those gems 🙂 I thought if I was hashing out a plan for Raven’s photos then I needed to offer them to EVERYONE! I really love my Christmas sessions. If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that they are usually pretty cool. One year I set up a mantel in the middle of a field. This year is going to be a woodland/rustic themed session. I can’t wait to get everything in and do a shoot so I can show you some previews! So without further ado, here is the information you came here to get.

I’ve been thinking about starting a cool series of photos for a while now. I wanted to give everyone an idea of how a photographer sees a scene. This has been something I’ve wanted to do for the past year or two, but I could never remember to get a photo of what a client may see. I recently had a session with my friend, Melanie, and she reminded me of exactly why I wanted to do this series. Unfortunately, neither one of us snapped a photo with our phones during the session. Melanie told me she was actually concerned about the location and timing of our shoot – clouds rolled in a little before their session start time which made it a lot darker than it should have been. She said that she thought it would be way too dark in the spot I chose to shoot at but she totally trusted me because I’ve done her photos a bazillion times and I know what I’m doing. Haha. I showed her the back of my camera after the first couple of images and her worries melted away. I think this was a prime example of the way the client and photographer view a scene for a photo session. When I look at a location, I look at it with my lens and the lighting in mind so I know exactly how it’s going to look before I even take the first photo. When Melanie was looking at the location, she just saw an overgrown area in the dark.

I’m still trying to think of what I can name this fun series and I’m hoping that I remember to actually take some photos or have my client take a photo before we start. The picture above is of Melanie and Trae during our session. It’s pretty good.

I’m currently booking my 2018 wedding season. If you’d like to book your wedding with this bad ass lady, shoot me an email or head up to the top and click contact. I’d love to talk to you about your kick ass wedding day.

Are you getting married in 2018? It’s time to book your wedding photographer. Seems crazy, right? It’s not. Most wedding photographers book a year in advance. I see more and more people waiting until 6 months prior to their wedding date to book their photographer and if you’re wedding date is during prime wedding season (in Tennessee we love our fall weddings so September and October) you may not get it. I’ve had so many brides inquire about my availability for Saturdays in October but they’ve been booked for a year or longer. It stinks having to tell a bride you’re already booked. Of course,  I’m not saying you have no chance so don’t think that.   Don’t assume your favorite photographer is booked. Always ask! One of my prime dates was booked last minute last year. I had planned on being out of town and blocked the date out and then my plans changed.


I feel like I’ve rambled.  I’m sorry. I just really like to stress how important it is to get your favorite photographer booked early.  Your wedding photographer is going to be one of the most important vendor you hire. We capture all of the moments and details.  Flowers die, cake gets eaten,  dress gets put in a box (unless you’re like me and your dress has never been washed from being in ocean and is just in a bag in the basement) but your photographer will capture all of those fleeting memories and monents so you can look at them any time you want and day dream about how delicious tjar buttercream was.


Another bonus of booking early is the ability to make payments. After you pay your retainer to book me,  we can set up a payment schedule to break your balance into 3-4 payments.

I’m currently booking 2018 weddings. All of my wedding packages include a complimentary engagement session. You’ll receive your high resolutions images on a USB with a print release. That allows you to get your photos printed anywhere. You’ll receive an average of 75 photos per hour of coverage. My wedding package pricing starts at $1400. If you’d like to receive more information or to book your wedding, click the contact button and shoot me a message.


Happy planning.
