Courthouse Engagement Session

Sarah and Troy are from California. They moved to Knoxville for Troy to complete his PhD in philosophy. They haven’t explored much because as soon as they moved here, the pandemic hit and everything shut down. The part of town they know best is downtown. They also wanted a staple Knoxville location to represent this season of their life since they plan to move back to California after Troy finished school. What better staples than the old Knox County Courthouse, Tennessee sign on Gay Street, Gay Street bridge, Henley Street bridge, and some really gorgeous fall color? Hence the reason we chose to do a Knox County Courthouse engagement session. In one spot we could hit all those major staples of Knoxville without spending too much time walking. We incorporated urban and grassy, fall color and brick, and architectural landmarks.

These two are so stinking sweet together. It’s very normal for couples to go into engagement sessions nervous. Most of the time the guys are dreading it, the girls are a nervous excited, and every single time my goal is to have them walk away from their session feeling confident, beautiful, and like it was a really fun time that they unexpectedly had. Which I’m pretty sure is how Sarah and Troy felt as they left their sunrise courthouse engagement session to start their day! So thankful they had me as part of this season, and if it works out that I get to go to California to shoot their wedding next year, I will love that as well!
