A Wedding at The Standard There are so many Knoxville venues that offer amazing outdoor portrait locations. There aren’t as many that offer a variety of indoor portrait locations though. Especially, not as many awesome spots as you get with a wedding at The Standard. I am so very thankful this past Saturday’s wedding was […]

Strawberry Creek Wedding This wedding was full of some of my favorite people. Way way way way back, 5 years ago, I photographed Tori & Landon’s wedding. Then, a couple years ago, I photographed Taylor & Ty’s wedding. Now, Landon’s sister, Marena, married Taylor’s brother, Jonathan, and they had their wedding at the Stables at […]

Stones River Country Club This couple may have gotten married in a church in Murfreesboro, but the bulk of their day was spent at Stones River Country Club. I’m so very thankful for this because Stones River Country Club offered a variety of portrait options while it rained outside. It also provided an awning to […]

Sampson’s Hollow Elopement Caleigh and James had a small Sampson’s Hollow wedding on May 23rd. They were the 4th of 6 weddings I had in 10 days, and it was the perfect middle wedding for two reasons. 1) They decided on a smaller wedding where it would just be four guests, their ADORABLE kiddos, and […]

WindRiver Wedding Day This wasn’t my first WindRiver wedding day since becoming a Knoxville Wedding Photographer, but this was the first time I photographed this combination of ceremony and reception locations. The ceremony was on the hill right beside Citico’s Restaurant overlooking the GORGEOUS lake. The reception, however, was at a spot called Overlook Manor […]

This post is going to sound so biased because…well…I’m a vendor. Of course, I want to be treated well, but I also want to explain why I feel this is so important. Plus, I have a few ideas for you so you want to treat your vendors especially well. Or maybe just some pointers you […]

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 […]

Marblegate Farm Wedding This was my first Marblegate Farm wedding. I had shot an engagement session and bridal portraits of Christine there, but this was the first full wedding day experience I had with them. Can I let you guys in on something?? They are phenomenal. I seriously could go on and on about the […]

The Stables at Strawberry Creek Wedding One of the things I love most about Brittney is how she shows her emotion. When she laughs, she laughs with her whole face. When she’s being sentimental, she does so through her touch, her look, her voice, all of her senses. The morning of her Strawberry Creek wedding, […]

Ramble Creek Vineyard Wedding Here it is, you guys. The final wedding from my triple header weekend. A Ramble Creek Vineyard wedding that had a touch of UT orange to represent how much this couple loves The University of Tennessee. If you remember, I published Taylor’s bridal session the day after their wedding. (You can […]

Dayton, OH Wedding at Top of the Market My middle wedding this past weekend was in Dayton, OH. How in the world did I get a Dayton, OH wedding you ask? It starts back in college. Even before I started Amanda May Photos. I went to undergrad at University of the Cumberlands where I played […]

Pavilion at Hunter Valley Farm Wedding This past weekend was one for the books. If you follow along with Amanda May Photos on Instagram, then you saw that I had a triple header weekend. It wasn’t just any triple header weekend though. It looked a little like this…Thursday night I shot this sweet couple’s rehearsal […]

Intimate WindRiver Wedding Lori and Greg had a small, intimate WindRiver wedding last weekend. I talked with Lori on the phone, but we did not meet in person until the wedding day. There was one thing that immediately stood out to me…how joyful she is. She is joyful with thanksgiving, joyful with excitement, and it […]

Cardwell Manor Wedding This venue hasn’t been open a long time… a year I think. This was my first Cardwell Manor wedding and therefore, is the first interaction I’ve had with this team. Let me tell you guys… I was impressed. This venue offers an “all inclusive” option. Which means they are doing the rentals, […]

Holston Hills Country Club Wedding You know what was really great about this Holston Hills Country Club wedding? How slow paced it was. I cannot tell you how long it’s been since I had a slow wedding day. Nobody was frantically rushing around, stressing, sweating, or irritable because we all had plenty of time to […]
