Amanda and Collin

Amanda and Collin will be married on September 4th at Clearview Baptist Church in Franklin with a reception at the Old Natchez Country Club.

Collin had been planning to fly into town for this photoshoot for months and it turned out to be the most beautiful weekend so far this year!  I don't know if they realized how much exercise they were going to get hiking around with me but despite the heat, they had fun with with each other in front of the camera and I think it shows through!

Amanda & Hugh Engagement Portraits

Amanda and Hugh agreed to meet me downtown for their engagement photos last weekend.  The first spot I took them to was an overlook with the bi-centennial mall in the background and Germantown just behind that.  They informed me that they are building their house in Germantown and should be able to move in shortly after the wedding.  I love that I get to spend such amazing two on one personal, get-to-know-you time with so many couples during what is sure to be one of the more action packed years of their lives. 

This was the first engagement portrait session that I've held so far this year in which it was sunny.  You would have thought a tornado was about to suck us into the sky at both of my e-sessions the week before and the two I had before that were both ankle deep in snow.  It was great to see the sun!  It is officially wedding season!!

Kevin and Stefanie - Engagement Portraits

Once upon a time in college, I was the guy that was always crashing on Kevin's couch.  We had some good times back then and I've really been looking forward to catching up with he and Stefanie over engagement portraits.  Kevin and his room mate Zach threw one of the greatest house parties I've ever been to.  They allowed me to bring my fog machines and fog it out so thick that you couldn't tell who you were dancing with and while the band was playing and everyone was moving to the beat... the floor in their living room actually collapsed.  That is how you know that the party succeeded and why you should never buy a house within a mile from a college campus.

The wedding is in August and I am secretly hoping that the floor will collapse... that is if it is a first floor reception ; )

Paulina & Mike Engagement

Paulina and Mike were married last year in Vegas but soon they will be holding a reception in New Orleans to celebrate with everyone who couldn't make it.  It was fun hanging out with them and dodging raindrops.

Jacob & Miranda - Wedding at West End United Methodist Church

Jacob and Miranda were married on Saturday, March 27th at West End United Methodist Church in Nashville.  It was a beautiful, warm, and sunny day.  Very different from our engagement portrait session in the snow just a couple months ago.  I enjoyed getting a chance to spend time with their friends and family.  They were all great sports as I distracted the guys on the ping-pong table and crammed everyone together on the photobooth backdrop.  The highlight for me was getting to enjoy one of the best smoothies of my life at the reception and catching some shots of the wedding party on the playground after the ceremony.  Congratulations to the newlyweds!  I'm looking forward to hearing all about their honeymoon in Jamaica on our 3rd meeting/dinner at Boscos.  I love traditions like these and making new friends through photography!!
