Sampson’s Hollow Elopement Normally, when you think of an elopement, you’re thinking that the couple is running off secretly and getting hitched in a little white chapel in Las Vegas where Elvis is officiating. But it doesn’t always have to mean that. Elopements can also be a small, intimate destination wedding like this Sampson’s Hollow […]

Deerfield Resort Family Session Have you ever heard of Deerfield Resort in LaFollette, TN? I’m going to guess probably not. I hadn’t either, but woah, baby. It’s SOOOO stinking pretty. It’s about 45 minutes from the interstate, as far off the LaFollette exit as possible, and it has a view of Norris Lake on either […]

Sunrise Knoxville Botanical Gardens Family Session EEEEK! I’m so excited to share these with you guys! This family is our neighbors! They moved in shortly after we did and, of course, Dustin met them long before I did (the nature of a wedding photographer is you work all the days that other people are off). […]

Hayes Family Home I am so so so thankful for this family for so many reasons. First and foremost, Jason is the pastor at the church Dustin and I attend. When we lived in Nashville, we went to Crosspoint. It was a GIGANTIC church that planted other churches all the time. About a year before […]

Cades Cove Family Session Get ready, you guys, because this Cades Cove family session is about to make you start cheesin’ ear to ear. We woke up at the crack of dawn (actually earlier) for this Cades Cove family session and drove around the park for nearly 2 hours getting awesome shots of Stephanie, Chris, […]

Melton Hill Park Engagement Session This couple did something a little different. It was like they did two separate engagement sessions, but they didn’t actually do two separate engagement sessions. They had an outfit change and a location change, which is something all of my clients get, but they did totally different posing. See, this […]

Southern Railway Station Wedding I have shot all over the Southern Railway Station building, but I had never been in this particular ballroom. Gosh, it is amazing! The very first thing that stole my photographer heart was the windows lining either side of the room flooding it with natural light. I walked in and immediately […]

Whitestone Country Inn Bridal Portraits Gosh, I am SO thankful that we did bridal portraits for Addi, and just as thankful that she chose to have Whitestone Country Inn bridal portraits done. So, on Addi & Marques’ wedding day, we got a little bit behind schedule. Like, almost an hour behind schedule (I have to […]

Meads Quarry 9 Month Photos It’s so cool getting to photograph babies, but it’s even more cool when you know their moms. Me and this girl go way back. We grew up just miles from one another in Claxton. One of the tiniest communities ever. It’s in between Clinton and Powell, and I think it […]

Norris Dam State Park This is the second time I’ve been to Norris Dam State Park this year and gosh…it’s just so pretty. It’s a 30 minute drive for me coming from Fountain City, but every time I get there, it’s just so worth it! It’s funny, when we first moved to Knoxville from Nashville, […]

Whitestone Country Inn Wedding I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’ve started blogging weddings the week after I shoot them this year. It’s not always easy, but here’s one of the biggest reasons I love to do it…because it’s still fresh. It’s fresh on my mind, on the guests’ minds, the families’ minds, and most importantly, […]

Cheval Manor I was so super surprised when I heard that this is the first wedding season that Cheval Manor has had it’s doors opened. Really though.

Cades Cove Engagement Getting this couple’s engagement session on the books was a little bit more difficult than I would have liked, but I am SO glad that we made it happen. Jackie told me from the start of our conversations that she wanted a Cades Cove engagement session. She said it was her favorite […]

Castleton Farms Bridal You know why I love doing Bridal sessions… because I have been the bride who didn’t do them and boy did I regret that. There were three things on my dress that I did NOT like on my wedding day that I had no idea would happen when I tried it on […]
