Sampson’s Hollow Fall Wedding This was the first wedding this year that truly felt like fall, and it was faaaaabulous. I’m so glad it happened for this couple because they are cold weather people, and they had guests from Atlanta, Kansas, Missouri, Maine, and beyond. What better time of year to visit the Great Smoky […]

The Stables at Hunter Valley Farm The Stables at Hunter Valley Farm is an actual working horse farm. and Caitlin, today’s bride, grew up riding horses at The Stables at Hunter Valley Farm.

Parkside Resort Destination Wedding I’ve shot at a lot of resorts in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area for destination weddings over the past couple years. They always have beautiful views, but this Parkside Resort destination wedding really showed me a different side of the Smoky Mountain cabin vibe. These cabins are so modern. They weren’t logs […]

Kincaid House Wedding Every time someone said, “Amanda!” at this Kincaid House wedding I would turn around. I was completely ready to listen to whatever they needed to say to me, but every single time I was that person. You know the one. The one waving at someone who is actually waving at someone else […]

Hunter Valley Pavilion Wedding Shooting a Hunter Valley Pavilion wedding is AMAZING. The ladies there have it all figured out, and every wedding I shoot there is a well-oiled machine. They get everything set up by noon. Cake, flowers, tablescapes….everything. They have chalkboard signs with perfectly configured calligraphy for any and all tables you could […]

Chapel Wedding by Amanda May Photos So, the exit photos on a wedding day are always some of my favorites. Exiting the reception, but also, exiting the ceremony. For this couple, they are ranking in my favorites for the day, but also my favorites out of all my exit photos this year! Hence the reason […]

Sampson’s Hollow Elopement Normally, when you think of an elopement, you’re thinking that the couple is running off secretly and getting hitched in a little white chapel in Las Vegas where Elvis is officiating. But it doesn’t always have to mean that. Elopements can also be a small, intimate destination wedding like this Sampson’s Hollow […]

Sunrise Knoxville Botanical Gardens Family Session EEEEK! I’m so excited to share these with you guys! This family is our neighbors! They moved in shortly after we did and, of course, Dustin met them long before I did (the nature of a wedding photographer is you work all the days that other people are off). […]

Cades Cove Family Session Get ready, you guys, because this Cades Cove family session is about to make you start cheesin’ ear to ear.

Southern Railway Station Wedding I have shot all over the Southern Railway Station building, but I had never been in this particular ballroom. Gosh, it is amazing! The very first thing that stole my photographer heart was the windows lining either side of the room flooding it with natural light. I walked in and immediately […]

Whitestone Country Inn Wedding I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’ve started blogging weddings the week after I shoot them this year. It’s not always easy, but here’s one of the biggest reasons I love to do it…because it’s still fresh. It’s fresh on my mind, on the guests’ minds, the families’ minds, and most importantly, […]

Cheval Manor I was so super surprised when I heard that this is the first wedding season that Cheval Manor has had it’s doors opened. Really though.

Fountain City Church Wedding || Reception at The Standard I love church ceremonies. That love is more because of the beauty of a marriage ceremony taking place in God’s house of worship and less because it’s pretty and makes for great photos. This Fountain City church wedding, however, was gorgeous. The church had AMAZING, massive […]
