Hunter Valley Bridal Portraits On Natalie and Anthony’s wedding day, Natalie was getting ready with her mom in the bridal suite. Her dress was not a simple assembly. It had a corset in the back that her mom had to thread and tie off. The bustle had 10 anchor points, and it took a solid […]

The Never Again 50% Off PRINT SALE As I typed out this header, I almost said “The Annual Print Sale” or the “Semi-Annual Print Sale.” Neither of those are true though because the ONLY time I give a sale on prints is if you book a preview party with me. Meaning if you hire me […]

It’s that time of year again where I’m sharing my 2019 favorite wedding images! There are a LOT on here, and this made me think I narrowed it down too small as I went throughout the year. I think I have a serious problem ha! In the past, I have thought through all of my […]

Ramble Creek Bridal Session We lucked out for Megan’s Ramble Creek bridal session because we literally got the BEST weather amidst several cold, rainy, cloudy days. It was heavenly. You know what else we lucked out on? Finding out her dress has POCKETS! Isn’t that a pleasant surprise?? Yeah, I think so, too! One of […]

WindRiver Bridal Portraits In case you haven’t noticed, I have shot a TON of bridal portraits recently. I think the biggest reason for this is the Wedding Planning 101 blog post that I wrote last month called “Why do a bridal session?” I’m not going to lie…as I’ve shot all of these recently, I’ve found […]

Ramble Creek Bridal Portraits I am seriously in awe over the light that we had at this GORGEOUS bride’s Ramble Creek bridal session. Also, this venue. I’ve shot one other wedding at Ramble Creek, but it was a December wedding. So, it looked totally different. Still so pretty, but so different. By the time you […]

Bridal Session: It’s not just about getting pretty pictures There is so much more to a bridal session than just getting pretty pictures of yourself. 15-20 years ago, bridal portraits were part of the engagement process. You then printed one of those photos on a massive scale, had it framed, and sat it on a […]

Crescent Bend Bridal Session This past weekend I got to photograph Amanda and Zeke’s wedding at the Kincaid House in Clinton, TN. I will be posting that blog post later this week, but right now, I cannot keep Amanda’s AMAZING Crescent Bend bridal session from you any longer! The day we took these, I came […]

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 […]

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 […]

Historic Westwood Bridal Session One thing that I think is a little unique about my AMP bridal sessions is that I love to photograph all the bridal details at them. I always always always photograph these exact same details on the morning of the wedding, but sometimes the light isn’t as pretty, something is forgotten, […]

Historic Westwood Bridal Portraits These Historic Westwood Bridal portraits are some of my favorites. I’ve actually taken bridal portraits in this same location before, and I loved it so much that I referred Leslie to them. They are absolutely so awesome to work with and they let you take furniture outside, move things off the […]

I got to meet Alysha Disney, now Payne, for the first time at a wedding that I shot in Charleston, SC. She is literally the definition of a southern belle. Not only is she absolutely gorgeous but she’s so incredibly sweet, a feature that I know she has inherited from both her mom and dad. […]

Eden… or Edie… is just the sweetest bride. I met up with her at The Barn at High Point Farms about a month before her wedding to take her bridal portraits. This was the first time that I had met Edie in person and she’s just as kind as she seemed in her emails. Both her […]
