Baxter Gardens Head Shots It’s literally been 2 years since I met the infamous Brittany Sidwell of Brittany Sidwell Photography. We talked over lunch with some other fellow photogs about creating a wedding photography group in Knoxville. Then, we all went paddle boarding on the Tennessee River with Billy Lush Rentals.
