The Press Room Wedding Caroline and I are a lot alike in our attention to detail, which is one of the reasons I think she chose me as their wedding photographer. Timelines detailed down to 5 minute increments, making sure the whole bridal party is standing at the same angle, and getting symmetrical family photos […]

RiverView Family Farm Wedding Here’s what I know about Chelsea and Daniel. They love the lake. They are so stinkin’ cool. They have a gorgeous daughter named Laiken. They thoroughly enjoy a good beer. They know how to have a great time. Even though I wasn’t physically there, I know they also throw a great […]

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 […]

Pine Ridge Baptist Church Wedding Julia and Jacob got married on October 12th at Pine Ridge Baptist Church in Harriman, TN. I woke up that morning to get ready to go and decided to throw on a light cardigan. I was so hot from blow drying my hair and carrying all my heavy equipment around […]

Hunter Valley Pavilion This past weekend I spent the day celebrating with Duncan and Sarah as they slid the prettiest rings on each other’s fingers and committed to forever.

Marblegate Farm Wedding As most of you know, this was my first wedding back from maternity leave just 7 short weeks after Hazel May was born. When I shoot weddings, Dustin watches the kids. This was the first day he was with a 7 week old and a 2.5 year old all day by himself. […]

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. According to these studies, the thing that has changed most over the last 5-7 years is the reliance on online reviews and word of mouth marketing. Young brides are either […]

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 […]
