Spout Springs Vineyard Family Session It has been a long time since I got to spend some quality time with these two. Brad and Kari got married at the Smithview Pavilion back in 2015. Their wedding was the first wedding that I ever shot at Smithview, and when I arrived, I was blown away with […]

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 […]

Meads Quarry 1 Year Old Session This little girl had her very own Meads Quarry 1 year old session last week, and she basically killed it.

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 […]

Knoxville Botanical Gardens Senior Session A couple of years ago, I took senior portraits of a girl named Brianne (click here to see those).

Kincaid House Wedding Every time someone said, “Amanda!” at this Kincaid House wedding I would turn around.
