AMP Studio This past weekend I had the absolute pleasure of photographing little Hayes turning 1!!!! I met his mom and dad through a wedding that I shot back in the summer. When I showed up at the wedding, Taylor made me feel like we had been friends forever as we found so many things […]

Ramble Creek Wedding I’ve watched other photographers post Ramble Creek Wedding photos and I’ve just ooh’d and aaah’d over them as I patiently waited for Mariah and Mitchell’s wedding to roll around. When it finally got here, I arrived an hour earlier than planned because I was so stinking excited to finally be getting to […]

Unicorn Newborn Session I was walking the aisles in Target right before Christmas, because lets face it, that place is on every single girls’ Christmas to do list, when I spotted this amazingly adorable crocheted unicorn newborn hat. The day before, Whitley had told me that she was being induced even earlier than originally planned […]

Cumberland Falls Engagement I attended a tiny little college in Williamsburg, KY. It was 30 minute away from this gem they call Cumberland Falls. I went a couple times while I was in school but could not grasp how incredible it was until I moved away… of course. It’s funny how that happens isn’t it? […]

Holston Hills I’ve shot a couple weddings at Holston Hills before. And I’ve always thought it was a gorgeous venue. But I hadn’t been there since the fall of 2017 and when I showed up for Kari and Stefan’s wedding, I was thoroughly impressed with the renovations they had completed. In particular, the new front […]

2017 Fall Family Photos This year has been crazy. I knew becoming a mom would take away a lot of my time as a photographer. I also knew that I still wanted to be a full time photographer. But here’s what I didn’t know… how extremely difficult and picky I was going to be with […]

Nashville Newborn Session This sweet mom and dad got married last October at one of the prettiest venues just outside of Nashville called the Sam Davis Home. It was a STUNNING wedding that I still use in some of my marketing material today! And now, a little over a year later, they have welcomed Ryleigh […]

The Christmas Place Addi and Marques decided to split there one big engagement session into 4 little mini engagement sessions; one in each season. But Marques is a football coach in South Carolina, which means that his fall schedule is not super flexible to make a drive to Knoxville. Couple that with my CRAZY fall […]

The Pavilion at Hunter Valley Farm Wedding Chelsie and Brian chose to have a Hunter Valley Farm wedding and I’m so glad they did because it is one of the few venues in Knoxville that offers a fantastic indoor option just in case it is raining! Chelsie emailed me the week before their wedding and […]

Christopher Place Wedding This was the first time I had gotten the chance to shoot at Christopher Place and man oh man was it awesome. This little bed and breakfast has one of the best views of the Smoky Mountains that I have ever seen! I arrived at dusk to photograph Ellen and Jake’s rehearsal […]

Alpine Village Wedding Chapel Brittany reached out to me about a few short weeks before her and her fiancé were coming to Pigeon Forge to elope. I guess technically it wasn’t an elopement because it was a little more planned and their closest family and friends joined them, but it definitely was a teensy, tiny, […]

Cumberland Mountain State Park Half way between Nashville and Knoxville is Cumberland Mountain State Park. I wouldn’t consider myself extremely well versed in my state parks, but I do know my way around a lot of campgrounds throughout Tennessee. However, I had never been here. I’m not quite sure how I missed it because it […]

Engagement Session at The Standard More and more often, I’m getting couples who have met online, Max and Elise being one of them. I think slowly but surely we are squashing the stigma that comes with online dating. I hope that this post helps in this squashing because, I personally think, with some caution, that […]

Sampson’s Hollow Wedding You’ve seen me bragging about Sampson’s Hollow Wedding s on here before.  I just love this cute little venue tucked back in some rolling hills just outside the Smoky Mountain National Park. I hadn’t gotten to photograph a Sampson’s Hollow Wedding during this season before and I think it might be my […]

Pavilion at Hunter Valley Farm Wedding There are wedding venues in Knoxville that are GORGEOUS but have terrible staff. There are also venues that have AMAZING staff but are not so cute. Pavilion at Hunter Valley Farm Wedding s get the best of both worlds because they are both absolutely stunning and have amazing staff. Not to […]
