ADAM & EMILY :: SUMMER SUNSET ENGAGEMENT SESSION :: IJAM'S NATURE CENTER & MEAD'S QUARRY :: KNOXVILLE WEDDING & ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

I absolutely LOVE LOVE! and Emily and Adam are so obviously head over heels in love with one another! It makes my job to capture this stage in their journey together so easy! Not to mention they are both professional models, so just a tiny bit of coaching for how I like to do things, but they're naturals!

(You know I'm excited when I use a "!" at the end of every sentence!) ;) 
Aren't they just the sweetest? 

Cayci & Michael :: Knoxville Engagement :: Spring Engagement Shoot :: Knoxville Botanical Gardens, The Historic Bleak House, and Downtown Knoxville

If I've never said it, (at least a hundred times) I love Engagement sessions! I love spring, and I love downtown Knoxville. So this session was a dream for me! 

We started out at The Knoxville Botanical Gardens, where their wedding will be this summer. Jessie at The Historic Bleak House was awesome enough to let me know that the purple Wisteria was blooming, and we could come there for a bit to incorporate some of their wedding color into the session! Then we headed Downtown to some new spots for me, which I couldn't be more excited about! 

This couple though! Throughout our time together, they laughed and talked and kissed the entire session. My cheeks literally hurt from smiling with them all morning! I love what we captured, and I cannot wait for your wedding this July!

Allison & Scott :: Downtown Knoxville & World's Fair Park :: Spring Engagement Shoot :: Knoxville Wedding Photographer

Need a reason to do an Engagement Session? THIS. We had an amazing evening together, just talking about wedding plans, walking around downtown Knoxville and getting to know each other... In the cold! brrr! It's been in the 70's for 2 weeks, and the day of their session, it drops down to the 40's! But we still had a great time, and this sweet couple is getting married in just 4 short months! 

The Engagement Session is a great chance to take your time and get some casual photos of the two of you enjoying just being together and being engaged! (It's also a great chance for your photographer to see how you interact, how you are in front of the camera, and give you a little coaching for the best photos on your wedding day!)

Allison & Scott, I cannot wait to photograph your wedding at Candoro Marble in July! If it's half as perfect as you two are together, it will be an amazing day! Not to mention, it's a gorgeous & unique Wedding Venue! I cannot wait!

Gage & Savannah :: Engagement Session :: Knoxville Wedding Photographer

If ever there was a couple that absolutely are perfect together - Savannah and Gage are that! From the short time we spent doing these photos, it was obvious that they just adore one another, and have such a sweet relationship. I'm so honored to have a part in telling their story through Engagements and their wedding this May! 

Laurie + Cody :: Lake Engagement Shoot :: Knoxville Engagement & Wedding Photographer

Laurie & Cody have to be one of the sweetest couples I've ever had the opportunity to work with! Would you just look at that love! It's so obvious they're crazy about each other! The couple is getting married next June at The Barn at Wildwood Springs, and I know the wedding day will be just as romantic and sweet.

Tell me your love story! {For a chance to win!}

knoxville engagement styled shoot giveaway contest free session

I know I've said it a thousand times... and I truly believe it... Every couple is different, therefore every love story is different! Call me a romantic, but proposal stories just bring tears to my eyes!
(and if you know me... so does every engagement session, and every wedding! and most movies, a few commercials, and about a thousand other things!)


So I wanted to do something special - to kick off this amazing year ahead of us! If you're recently engaged, within the last 6 months (or since August 1, 2014) and have not had any engagement photos done yet... I want to give you the chance to win the Engagement shoot of your choice! 

I have about twenty different styled photo shoot styles bouncing around my brain, and you'll get to select the look and mood YOU want! I don't ever want my photography to be "one size fits all" because there is no "one size fits all" love story. I want to tell YOUR love story in photos.

Comment below and tell me about yourself! Include both your names, how you met, how long you've been together, how you knew he was "the one," how he proposed, and your reaction, of course! Were you surprised? Did you guess what he was doing? Did you cry? Did he cry? :) 

 

I really want there to be a random winner, but a contest seems like a marketing ploy to get you to send your friends to vote... which isn't my intention. and honestly, a contest makes it a lot of work on your part, so let's not do that. I like to keep things simple. 

So this will be done Old-School... with drawing a name from a bowl. Or maybe the story that requires the most tissues... :) HaHa!  

So, tell me your love story!

Please remember to include both your names, as well as your contact information! 

After I narrow down to 10-15 couples, I'll draw one lucky couple as the winner! (If I have a great response to this, I may possibly think about doing more than one! 
The next step is then to plan your styled photo shoot for the spring! I've got some gorgeous ideas, and some vendors already on-board for pulling together the perfect styled shoot!  


The only requirements are that you are engaged within 6 months (since August 1st) and have not had your engagements or wedding yet, and have not booked your wedding with me already. Also, please "Like" my FaceBook page HERE and Share this Giveaway by using one of the icons on the top left-hand side of this page! Thanks so much! and Good Luck! :)
