Marblegate Engagement Wooooh you guys! I am totally obsessed with this Marblegate engagement session! It was a BLAST getting to know Laura Kate (LK) and Allister better. They kept me on my toes the entire time with their humor. Between each pose they would be cutting up, laughing, picking on each other, and as soon […]

The Studio at Fountain City Engagement Session Right before this pandemic, Dustin and I moved into a house on Gibbs Drive in Fountain City. There was a painting studio in the back that I have since converted to a photography studio. I had just finished it when COVID-19 took over the nation. I was planning […]

K-Brew Engagement Session I’m not gonna lie I’m a sucker for a good local coffee shop as much as your hipster neighbor. K-Brew is one of the bigger ones close to my house, and it is my preferred choice when I have time to sit at a coffee shop to work. When Laura Beth and […]

Downtown Nashville & Love Circle Engagement I am SO glad that we did this downtown Nashville and Love Circle engagement photos before it got too crazy with Coronavirus everywhere. When I arrived in Nashville, it wasn’t to the point of not wanting to pass by someone on the street without crossing the road, and I’m […]

Island Home Airport Engagement Session I love airplanes, I love traveling, and I think I was MEANT to photograph this couple for so many reasons. 1) Their names are Devin and Delaney. I have two sisters-in-law named Devin and Dylana (pronounced the same except “uh” at the end instead of “ee”). 2) I am JUST […]

Winter Engagement at Melton Hill Park If you have ever been introduced to me or been the person who introduces me to someone else, you’ve heard me say I’m bad with names. I am the world’s worst. I want to think it’s because there are 900 things coursing through my head at any given time […]

Third Creek Greenway Engagement Session We were originally supposed to go to the Foothills Parkway for some pretty mountain backdrops until the forecast called for killer clouds. They sorted through several locations on my blog but just wanted something a little different and unique. Then, Chris…yes, I said Chris…as in the groom…mentioned Third Creek Greenway. […]

Castleton Farms Engagement Session Taylor and Collis had their engagement session with me this past weekend. We met up at Castleton Farms and spent almost 2 hours together venturing around the property with their pup in tow getting gorgeous engagement photos. I got to know them a little better throughout our time together. Collis is […]

Knoxville Engagement Session These two live in Kentucky and came south for their Knoxville engagement session. It was the first day of the season where it was bitterly cold outside (even though you would never be able to tell in the photos), and these two were seriously champs as the chill bumps crept up on […]

Southern Railway Station Engagement Session Eric proposed to Erica on a hike in the Smokies. So, when we discussed engagement session locations, we decided on a place called Andrew’s Bald. It was going to be totally gorgeous except for on issue. There is a bit of a hike. We all three love hiking though so […]

Knoxville Botanical Gardens Engagement Session I think most of my couples would describe me as a very vocal photographer. I am constantly communicating from behind my camera. Whether it’s giving directions, confirming how amazing they are, or cracking a really lame joke in efforts to get some natural laughter, I’m always talking. I have really […]

Apple Barn Engagement Session Erin and Justin live in Michigan. Erin found me because she was a bridesmaid in her brother’s Knoxville wedding a few years ago. As soon as she got engaged, she reached out to me and told me she had to have me as her photographer. Before she even reached out to […]

I can already tell that any photographer who comes across this engagement session is going to message me asking where it is. It is an AMAZING location called Eagle Rock with some of the best views around, but unfortunately, it is not open to the general public. It’s actually a retreat that Adam works at […]
