Knoxville Wedding for Amy & Nick

Nick and Amy were married on July 17th at Greystone Presbyterian Church in Knoxville, TN with a reception at Calhoun's on the River.  The newlyweds live and work in Nashville but thought a Knoxville wedding would be appropriate since they met and fell in love at UT.  Everyone was all smiles despite the heat and very gracious in letting me get so many silly shots in the children's theatre section of the church.  Also, I bought a UT football helmet for the occasion and got some fun shots of the bride and groom wearing it and it was a hit at the photobooth!  

Nick and Amy were referred to me by Nick's boss Matt Irwin whose wedding I photographed 2 years ago.  Matt and his wife Michelle worked as the DJs for the wedding and I have to say they did an amazing job.  This is the 2nd time I've had the opportunity to work with them (other than their own wedding) and I would recommend them as DJs anytime.  Matt was fun and engaged with the crowd from announcing the photobooth to having the guests circle around the bride and groom for their first dance and then to rush them for a giant hug which worked out great for photos!

Wedding in Estes Park, Colorado

Kati and Mark were married on June 26, 2011 in Estes Park Colorado, just outside of the entrance to Rocky Mountain State Park.  We were able to get some of the pre-ceremony portraits at a lake with Long's Peak (the highest mountain in Colorado) in the background.

This has been a big year for destination weddings for me.  In past years I have had a couple of weddings in Knoxville, Chattanooga, or Oxford Mississippi but this year I have already shot weddings in 5 states and turned one down in the Hamptons b/c I was already booked.  This is pretty exciting for a guy who loves to get away and discover great new locations!

Amy Reed's Bridal Portraits

I met up with Amy Reed for our bridal portraits on a Sunday last month.  Earlier in that day I had found out that my grandmother had died and Amy was sweet enough to let us cut our session a location short so that I could go be with my family for dinner that night and I really appreciate her understanding.  Following are a few of the great bridal portraits we were able to get in our short amount of time.

Wedding at Cathedral of the Incarnation and Noah Liff Opera Center Reception

Jason and Jessica were married on June 19th at the Cathedral of the Incarnation and had a reception at the Noah Liff Opera Center.  It was an extremely hot day so we scratched our original plans to do a pre-ceremony wedding party shoot at Centennial Park nearby.  We stuck with the air conditioning which I believe was smart.  The Cathedral is beautiful and there was plenty of natural light bouncing around since it was such a bright sunny day.  This was my first opportunity to shoot at the Noah Liff Opera Center and I had a great time taking advantage of the amazing window light and balcony.  Also, we set up a photobooth and they were nice enough to share some of the Opera Center's props for the evening!
