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 […]

2018 Favorite Engagements Yesterday, you saw my 2018 favorite wedding photos post. One of my FAVORITE posts to look back on in my year review analysis. Now, I want to share my 2018 favorite engagements post. Also long, but not nearly as long as the wedding post. I’m sure it took your browser a solid […]

Smoky Mountain Engagement Session When we were choosing a location for Sarah and Chase’s engagement session, Sarah proposed going to Chase’s uncle’s cabin for a Smoky Mountain engagement session. I, being the mountain lover that I am, am ALWAYS down with shooting in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. She then proceeds to tell me […]

Meads Quarry Engagement Session I have this gallery wrap hanging in my office that is a 20×30. It’s the sample print that I give to inquiring brides when they book with me within 24 hours. That print is from Ty and Taylor’s wedding that I shot a few years ago. It was one of my […]

Cumberland Engagement Session Tiffany, Shawn, and I all went to University of the Cumberlands. Shawn is actually from the area, but now, he and Tiffany live in Lexington, Kentucky. They booked me as their wedding photographer several months ago, and when we discussed locations, it made so much sense for us to meet in the […]

The Stables at Strawberry Creek Engagement Session This is one of those venues that I’ve seen all over the place, but I haven’t actually gotten to shoot there myself until Brittney and Dusty hired me! Not only are they getting married here, but they also chose to have The Stables at Strawberry Creek engagement pictures […]

Volunteer Landing Engagement Session You guys know how I have this agreement with Jesus and rain on wedding days, right? I really don’t even check weather forecasts for wedding days until the night before (sometimes not even that), and I rarely remember to bring my clear umbrellas. He just ALWAYS comes through with parting the […]

Sinking Creek Farm Engagement Session I know Morgan because I photographed her sister’s gorgeous wedding a couple of years ago! You can see it here! I remember thinking what an awesome sister Abbey had when I met Morgan. She was fulfilling her maid of honor duties like a champ. Now, I’m so excited to say […]

Family Farm Engagement Session This guy’s family owns a 350 acre farm out in Greeneville, TN. When I met with Ashley for our meet & greet, we talked about location ideas for their engagement session. We threw out places like The University of Tennessee’s campus, Downtown Knoxville, and World’s Fair Park. Then, in an attempt […]

Neyland Stadium Engagement Photos The really awesome part of shooting Neyland Stadium engagement photos is, of course, that I was in Neyland Stadium. It’s massive and completely empty (well, except for their cleaning crew that is probably still like 100 people), and we basically get the whole entire thing to ourselves. The downfall to shooting […]

Lake Bistineau &¬†Air Force Engagement Photos It’s not every day that I get asked to fly to another state to shoot engagement photos so let me tell you a little bit about this Lake Bistineau State Park and Air Force engagement session. I actually played college volleyball with Megan. When I started my photography business […]

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 […]

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 […]

Percy Warner Engagement Percy Warner engagement pictures NEVER disappoint. Kaylyn & Aaron are planning a wedding in like 2 months, y’all. Can you say impressive? I think if there were any couple who could do it, it would be this couple. Kaylyn is so super organized and is a do-er. When she sets her mind […]

Vanderbilt Engagement Pictures A Vanderbilt engagement session was a no brainer when we were talking about places to take Casey and Will’s engagement photos. These two met on day 1 of freshman year when Will was assigned to Casey to help her carry boxes up to her first dorm room. See, Vandy has a thing […]
