laura + richard | tennessee engagement session

Laura and Richard are best friends. They started out as roommates, fell in love and now they’re SOULmates. Get it? Too much? haha, but it’s true… and they’re getting married this June! For their engagement shoot we wanted to capture them at some of their favorite places, just being themselves. (and include plenty of plaid! haha). We had to bring along ‘Rita’ an awesome old truck and gift from Richard, and of course their dog, Bonnie Blue. View more of their sweet session and slideshow here. I’m so very happy for these two…

 

our house + cottage magazine feature

Happy New Year! Sitting cozy at home while it’s about 10 degrees outside (and loving every second)! Looking back, I’m feeling so thankful for such a fun and busy year! One of my favorite things about 2013 was the honor of being featured in Cottage Journal’s winter issue… and not only my photos, but photos of our tiny farm cottage! My dear friend Lauren writes for Cottage and shared our sweet house with her editor. I was SO excited when they wanted to feature it! Lauren and our friend Sarah (who were interns with me at Southern Living and have been BFFs since) got to come visit, style and help shoot the whole house last January. The issue came out just a few weeks ago, you can see the spreads below. Jenkins the Whippet even made an appearance! You can find copies at bookstores, home improvement stores and most groceries… and someone even found a copy at Tractor Supply!

What a wonderful keepsake. Isn’t Lauren such a beautiful and talented writer?! This is so very special to us and I’m excited to share it… and while I’m sharing, here are the other images that didn’t make it into the magazine, a virtual tour of the rest of the house… our tiny little farm cottage!

 

 

casey + daniel [nashville engagement session]

This gorgeous couple is getting married this weekend and I just must share some favorites from their engagement shoot in downtown Nashville. Casey and Daniel were so easy to shoot and seemed like naturals in front of the camera. They chose dressier clothing, which worked perfectly with the surroundings and was very fitting for their personalities. My sweet friend and photographer, Courtney Wix, helped out with the shoot and we get to cover the wedding together, too! It makes the day even better when you get to bring a best friend along. :) I’m so very happy for Casey and Daniel and can’t wait for their wedding this weekend! (which is also my ONE YEAR wedding anniversary, so I’ll try my hardest to get some of my OWN wedding photos shared soon!) Enjoy a few favorites and view their full slideshow and gallery here.

cassey + ryan | lookout mountain wedding

I love Lookout Mountain. It’s like a fairytale dreamland. Little mountain cottages, kids walking to school, a breathtaking view of not only Chattanooga below, but 6 other states! I was so excited to hear that Cassey and Ryan wanted me to photograph their wedding at Grandview! It’s an insanely beautiful setting for such a special celebration. I personally love outdoor ceremonies and receptions anyways and that view was just the icing on the cake! Here are some favorites from Cassey and Ryan’s sweet wedding… view more in their gallery here.

ADORABLE.
