Holly & Hunter were so much fun to photograph - I can't even. They literally laughed and kissed and snuggled through their entire session! It was SO cold, they just snuggled up and did amazing at all my silly requests...
Without fail, every time I do an engagement session, I say they're my favorite! (I really think they are, even though I feel the same way about newborns and weddings!)
I had so much fun the other evening with these two! I love getting to find new "spots" to photograph downtown, and we almost ran out of daylight for our second location at Ijam's Quarry (formerly Mead's Quarry). But they stuck it out with me, and trusted that I could "fake" some sunlight where there wasn't much left! :)
OH how I love this sweet couple! They laughed, kissed and just held each other the entire time! That's my kind of session!
Jessica and Adam, I cannot wait to shoot your wedding at Big Ridge State Park in June! I know it's going to be just as fun and full of love!
I couldn't have asked for a cuter couple to photograph as my last Engagement session for the year! Alex and Jace were so fun to photograph - they talked and laughed literally the entire time! How can we not get great photos? ...AND it was Alex's Birthday!
Alex & Jace are getting married next October at The Museum of Appalachia, and I cannot wait! But we also wanted fall engagement photos, and the area along Melton Lake Drive in Oak Ridge and on the property of Riverside Grille was perfect! Not to mention they're catering Alex & Jace's wedding next year!
I have to be honest - I was super nervous about the weather for this session in Asheville with Kristie and Max. It was supposed to be cloudy and rainy... But I could not be happier with these! The sun even came out for us by the time we went downtown!
Kristie & Max were absolutely amazing - We were able to get SO many great images, because they were up for whatever pose I wanted to try, and we literally found a new beautiful spot to shoot in, one right after another! :)
We started out at Carrier Park, where Max proposed! There was literally so many spots full of color! Then we headed to downtown Asheville, and just parked and walked around the block to see what we could find! I am loving that blue wall!
With Katie & Josh's session the other day, we lost complete track of time having so much fun with this session! We literally took photos until it was too dark!
While doing these and walking around finding the perfect spots for photos, Katie told me how she used to come out to this area to bird watch with her grandparents. I love that we were able to photograph at a location that has special meaning for my clients!
Josh is the founder & owner of Volunteer Piano in Knoxville, TN - and Josh & Katie made this antique piano a special project to work on together, converting it into a bar! How unique is that! So we had to incorporate the piano bar into some of their Engagement photos! (P.S. I think it's for sale, if you're interested!)
Katie & Josh are getting married at The Emporium in April - and I cannot wait to see what they come up with for their wedding! I know it will be just as creative & unique as they are!
For Lee & Lily's session, we started out at the Botanical Gardens for some fall photos, then made our way downtown to chase the sunset around the Old City and find some neat spots! At one point as we were walking, I kept thinking about this one set of brick stairs in front of a restaurant in the Old City - and come to find out that's where Lily & Lee met! I'm excited that we got to incorporate that location into some of the photos! :)
Since I met Lily & Lee, I've been SO excited to work with them! At our first consultation to talk about their Wedding, Lee kept leaning over and giving Lily kisses on the cheek... and they had a way of talking to each other that is just obvious they've got such a loving relationship... so I knew that this session was going to be awesome! (And Lee did the same thing all evening as we walked around, leaning over and giving Lily sweet kisses!) I absolutely cannot wait for your wedding next September at Dara's Garden!
This fall it seems as though the leaves changing colors has been a little delayed - but we were able to find some spots that really show how beautiful East Tennessee is! For Ben & Brittany's engagement photos we headed up to to the Norris State Park area around the dam for some fun engagement photos!
Ben & Brittany met years ago at work and have been together ever since! It was so sweet just to see how perfect they are together.
We've literally had this session planned for almost a full year! Alyssa's sweet sister found me, and purchased an Engagement session for the couple - and now I'm also shooting their wedding this coming June!
I had so much fun with Alyssa & Thad - mainly just laughing along with them having a great time together! I know your wedding will be just as fun!
Mr. Wiggles joined the fun for a few photos! But those are a surprise for Alyssa & Thad's Save-The-Dates!
Want to know what he's whispering? It's hilarious! These two...
I hope you love these as much as I do! If you enjoyed these, please leave a comment for the happy couple!
