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 […]

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 […]

Castleton Farms Engagement Remember at the beginning of last week when we had those really random days of 65-degree highs for the temperature? Yeah, well we got to take these Castleton engagement photos then and it was seriously perfect. I loved getting to know Sarah & Ryan better. My favorite thing about them is how […]

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.

Ramble Creek Bridal Portraits I am seriously in awe over the light that we had at this GORGEOUS bride’s Ramble Creek bridal session. Also, this venue. I’ve shot one other wedding at Ramble Creek, but it was a December wedding. So, it looked totally different. Still so pretty, but so different. By the time you […]

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 […]

Melton Hill Park Senior and Family This blog post is going to look a little bit different because this session was a little bit different.

When I was pregnant with Grayson, I didn’t even want maternity pictures. I took them because I didn’t want to regret not taking them, but I swelled so terribly and hated how big I got. There was no way I wanted to document that. I did anyways, and I’m so thankful because I love seeing […]

Forks of the River Senior Pictures You know those famous sunflower fields in TN that shower your news feeds every summer? Did you notice that they weren’t there last year?
