Our Spring Minis are one of our most popular times for photos.  At the end of the sessions I am physically drained, but emotionally overflowing!  Oh how I love capturing such sweet moments for each family.  This year our Spring Minis were held in FL on 30A and a second weekend here in Downtown Franklin, TN at one of my FAVORITE portrait locations, Historic Carnton Plantation.  Here are some highlights that are sure to make you swoon 🙂

Henry and I chatted over the phone to coordinate the plan for the proposal.  1) He would pick up Paige from the airport  2) Bring her to the Pedestrian Bridge in Downtown Nashville 3) Hand her a letter & face her towards the city 4) I would be in position & when he went down on one knee she would turn around 5) She’d say YES!

The night came… I was in position (with my amazing husband, Luke, assisting me) on the bridge.  The only problem, we hadn’t met in person and I had only seen a photo of them from Facebook.  From my position on one end of the bridge, I thought I saw them… at the OTHER end of the bridge.  So I take off running in my wedges!  Henry was already in the zone when I made it to them and I was JUST in time!  He knelt down on one knee (with the ring box upside down, haha)…Paige turned around… and SHE SAID YES!!  I had chills all over. But that’s not all!  Henry had arranged for her family to fly in from Florida to surprise her.  Both his & her families walked up and the tears flowed and soon after the champagne 🙂   AHHH I can’t even describe the joy I felt to be a part of this.  Congratulations Henry & Paige!

The Farmers & Stapletons are long time friends and I have experienced the utmost joy in capturing their weddings, babies, family pics and hopefully more of all of those to come!! 🙂  They are some of the most kind & generous people you will ever meet.  They all live life with laughter & cherish time with family.  I hope my family reflects theirs as my kids grow.  Our last morning of Spring Break, before hitting the road home from 30A, I was able to snap some family portraits for them and of their newest addition to the family, baby Hank.  AHHHH this kid!  A baby with sunglasses has to be one of my favorite things in life, haha!

Ya’ll my dear friend & client, Jessica Bishop aka “The Budget Savvy Bride“, was featured this week on CNBC online!!  See her killer video below on how she cut her wedding budget in half!  Evin Photography gets a shout out too!  I have always been in awe of Jessica & her many, many talents.  She is truly a trend setter and one of the sweetest people you will ever meet. You’ll LOVE her tips.  Here’s her quick video tip from CNBC…

 

How this bride had a $20,000 wedding for half the price

She knew she only had $500 to serve 150 guests beer and wine. So she had a sneaky trick to keep it cheap. http://cnb.cx/2oacrwR
