The Press Room Wedding This wedding at The Press Room had so many amazing details that I just LOVE. Instead of describing them all in paragraph form, I thought it would be easier for me to go through it with bullet points. The gifts that Katie and Ethan gave their bridesmaids and groomsmen were amazing. […]

Christmas Cookie Session The Whites welcomed me into their home last week for a bit of Christmas cookie decorating. We had absolutely so much fun rolling out the dough, having icing wars, and munching on some delicious cookies. These kiddos are the sweetest. Even though Jake doesn’t always just hang out in the kitchen watching […]

Arrington Vineyard Wedding I checked the radar the week leading up to Emily and Charlie’s Arrington Vineyard wedding. It was calling for clear skies with rain the day before and the day after, but clear skies on Sunday. Then, I realized it was still looking at Knoxville weather, but I shrugged it off because it […]

A cookout event for AMP couples only So, I did a thing this year. Instead of spending a crazy amount of money advertising with Wedding Wire, I invested back into my couples. Every single year, I really sit down to look at a budget for Amanda May Photos. I allot so much to advertising, so […]

Graystone Quarry Wedding Kaylin and Trey found me because Kaylin was a bridesmaid in a wedding I photographed two years ago. I didn’t know the impact I made on her when I photographed Leslie & Griffin’s wedding until she reached out to me to tell me she was now engaged, and she couldn’t imagine hiring […]

How to choose your Wedding Photographer There have been so many studies done on wedding planning. The Knot and Wedding Wire both do big ones.
