Knoxville Zoo Engagement Session

Before Grayson, I hadn’t been to the Knoxville Zoo in AGES. I’m talking elementary school. I remember thinking it was the coolest place ever when I was little, but as I grew, it just wasn’t somewhere I went. Then, we had Grayson and decided to get annual passes. When we went for the first time, my eyes really opened to what it was like to go to the zoo as an adult. You see things in such a different way. I thought it was neat for way different reasons than when I was a kid. Then, I got to view it through the lens of my camera for this Knoxville Zoo engagement session, and I loved it for even more different reasons!

When I met Jennifer, she told me she is a veterinarian. She also said she wanted to have a Knoxville Zoo engagement session. I was immediately intrigued. If there is one thing you hear me preach on here a lot, it is making your engagement session your own. I love shooting in new places that are set apart because they are unique to the couple’s personality. This was a first for me. Of course, I took photos of Grayson’s first visit because I couldn’t help myself. But going after hours when it’s completely deserted, riding on a golf cart around the whole campus, and picking and choosing the best spots without worrying about other people in the background…that was pretty awesome. Now, Jennifer and Peyton are getting married in April so we had to do their engagement photos in the winter, which means the animals aren’t really out. Honestly, even with all the animals staying inside in their warm rooms, we still got some very awesome Knoxville Zoo engagement photos!
