The Cedars Wedding in Acworth, GA The day before Houston and Christina’s wedding at The Cedars, I had another wedding in Knoxville. The send off was at 9:30pm, and it was a 3 hour drive to our hotel in Georgia. When I arranged these two weddings, I didn’t think anything about it because weddings this […]

Hunter Valley Pavilion Wedding We kicked off Natalie and Anthony’s Hunter Valley Pavilion wedding day at Natalie’s mom’s house out in Louisville, TN. She and her girls stayed there the night before and had the most relaxing morning eating snacks, having their hair and makeup done, and just hanging out. When I got there, Natalie […]

Emporium Wedding One of the things I love most about Laura Beth and Trevor is they know exactly what they want, and they go for it. I felt this way before their wedding day, but after hearing the toasts at the reception, I think this is a trait that goes back much further than just […]

Castleton Vow Renewal As a photographer, you overhear a lot of things on a wedding day. Not on purpose. You’re just always there photographing something around all the people, and you just hear them. For the most part, all the things I hear are hilarious and so true. Things like, “the first time my husband […]

Brooke & Ian’s Castleton Farms Wedding Ceremony & Reception At the beginning of every month, my assistant puts the timelines to every wedding for that month in my calendar. This way on the wedding day I have it on my watch, and it alerts me 5 minutes before the next piece of the day is […]

Historic Westwood Senior Session I met Maddy for the first time at the fundraiser I hosted for Hope Resource Center back in June.

6 Month Lifestyle Session This is a Burton family 6 month lifestyle series session with baby Kairyn. He may only be 6 months old, but he has more hair than my 14 month old and almost as much as my 3.5 year old ha! He’s the most adorable little man, and he’s so deeply loved […]

Airbnb Elopement Bethany and Nick’s wedding day was another unique spin on a COVID wedding. I think you are about to be very impressed with them as I start explaining just how this day went. They were supposed to get married in a synagogue off Kingston Pike. It was going to be a small wedding, […]

The Southern Railway Station Wedding I can’t remember what I wrote about in Delaney and Devin’s engagement session blog, but I’m sure it had something to do with the fact that I have two sisters-in-law named Devin and Dylana (pronounced the same as Delaney but with an “uh” sound on the end instead of “ee”). […]

Relix Variety Wedding by an AMP Associate Photographer Shauna and Josh’s wedding at Relix Variety Theater was shot by one of my associate photographers, Leah Nicole Photo.

The Mill & Mine Wedding Lindsay and Kendrick are really pretty incredible. I knew at the very first meeting I had with them how similar of personalities we have. It was a little scary, actually, how much we have in common.  Fast forward to shooting their engagement session this past spring (which you can revisit […]

A Wedding at The Press Room This Press Room wedding day was a little unique. These two were supposed to get married in May. I was already booked on their wedding date so they hired one of my associates (Leah Nicole Photo). Then, COVID hit, and they had to reschedule to July like many of […]

Downtown Urban Engagement Session You’ve heard me say this before, but I’m going to say it again.

CJ’s Off the Square Wedding You guys, I have checked off another goal wedding venue. I have wanted to shoot a CJ’s Off the Square wedding for SO long. It is one of those venues that was in Nashville before it became cool to be in Nashville. A Nashville original, if you will. The month […]
