Knoxville Gardens Engagement The weirdest thing happened at this Knoxville Gardens Engagement Session. We were shooting along the gravel road that cuts right through the middle of the gardens, and these two teenagers were walking through throwing rocks. I didn’t think that much about it when they were more than 50 yards away from us. […]

Knoxville Botanical Engagement I shoot Knoxville Botanical engagement sessions a lot. I mean, it is one of the prettiest, largest, most diverse parks/gardens in Knoxville. So it’s no wonder why people want their pictures taken there so much. It’s always gorgeous, but on the day of Caitlin and Billy’s engagement session, the sun was especially […]

Biltmore Engagement Session Oh, Biltmore Engagement sessions… you steal my sunshiney heart every. single. stinking. time. 3 of the 4 times that I’ve shot Biltmore Engagement sessions it has been the most beautiful perfect weather. Is this another reason why everyone loves Asheville so much? Because it has perfect weather…like all the time? Katelyn & […]

UT Gardens Engagement Session When I first talked to Danielle & Tommy about doing engagement pictures, they weren’t totally sold. I think it was more Tommy really feeling like pictures were not his thing. It wasn’t two days later, and they ran into another photographer at a restaurant. It was Alison Cunningham with A&M Photography, […]

Baxter Gardens Engagement Baxter Gardens is one of those hidden gems in North Knoxville that only comes out for a very very short season. Every year, during the Dogwood Arts Festival, the Holston family opens up their private residence to the public to enjoy one AMAZING landscaping job. You have the option to drive through […]

Meads Quarry Engagement I have SUCH a crazy story behind this couple. Before I jump into their amazing Downtown Knoxville & Meads Quarry Engagement session, I want to share a bit about it. I think Morgan might have found me on Instagram… I can’t even remember. But as I was emailing back and forth with […]

Pizza Picnic When I got to meet with Maddie for the first time, I was asking her questions about her and Lee. Things like how they met, what the proposal was like, etc… When it came time to discuss the engagement session, I asked her, like I ask all my couples,¬†what are some things that […]

Castleton Engagement Session I don’t know if you remember this couple, but I had another Castleton engagement session for them back in the¬†summer last year. They really had their hearts set (or Madeline had her heart set) on doing some boat engagement photos in the little pond at Castleton Farms but at the time, the […]

Norris Dam Engagement Photos I have not shot Norris Dam Engagement Photos in yeeeeaaaars! Like literally, I was still living in Nashville the last time I did Norris Dam Engagement Photos. At that time the Grist Mill still had a little shop running out of the building, and the wheel was constantly turning water to […]

The Quarry So there’s this new wedding venue in Knoxville called The Quarry. It’s a little over a year old since it officially launched as a Knoxville wedding venue and it’s very exclusive. By exclusive, I mean they treat their brides REALLY awesome and don’t let just anyone use the property. This means that their […]

Cumberland Falls Engagement I attended a tiny little college in Williamsburg, KY. It was 30 minute away from this gem they call Cumberland Falls. I went a couple times while I was in school but could not grasp how incredible it was until I moved away… of course. It’s funny how that happens isn’t it? […]

The Christmas Place Addi and Marques decided to split there one big engagement session into 4 little mini engagement sessions; one in each season. But Marques is a football coach in South Carolina, which means that his fall schedule is not super flexible to make a drive to Knoxville. Couple that with my CRAZY fall […]

Engagement Session at The Standard More and more often, I’m getting couples who have met online, Max and Elise being one of them. I think slowly but surely we are squashing the stigma that comes with online dating. I hope that this post helps in this squashing because, I personally think, with some caution, that […]

Biltmore Estate Engagement This session holds a special place in my heart because Leah is my step sister on my dad’s side and we’ve been sisters since she was a baby. I’ve watched her grow and blossom and fall in love and all the things and now I still can’t believe I’m taking her engagement […]
