I first met Noreen and Justin at the Premier Bride Bridal Show at the Nashville Convention Center. I knew they were going to be a fun couple as soon as they told me they were learning the dance from the movie “Dirty Dancing” to perform as their first dance at their wedding! It was a smashing hit! Also, at their Gaylord Opryland reception a bird flew head on into the wall of windows that were directly behind the bride and groom during the toasts causing a loud bang, knocking the bird out cold. There were gasps from the guests and Noreen & Justin busted out in laughter. I wish many more years of fun and laughter for you two! Keep it up! ๐Ÿ™‚

Laura and I have gone to the same church for years and have grown up together, so it was SO neat to be a part of her wedding day! I have shot at their ceremony location, Owen Chapel, multiple times. They allow each couple who gets married there to have the whole week before to decorate and set up for their big day, so it has a special feel for each couple that marries there! I absolutely LOVED their cake- it was gorgeous! Congrats Josh and Laura! Hope you are enjoying married life! ๐Ÿ™‚

Some of you may remember the maternity shoot post from a few months ago of Meredith Smith. They were shot with her in her husbands fire department & army gear at my photography studio located in Historic Downtown Franklin, TN. Well, baby Lane finally arrived and we went with the same precious theme for his Newborn photos. I know his daddy Joel is so proud of his little man and Lane will grow up being so proud of his daddy.

What a fun couple & a hilarious bridal party! Ben & Jenna are so precious with each other and you can tell they are so in love. Their reception took place in the church’s gym, which was completely TRANSFORMED with lighting. It was a stellar idea that enriched the classy event. I am definitely going to suggest this idea to many brides & grooms in the future. And I can’t forget to mention that their groomsmen followed their limo on razer scooters as they drove away. ๐Ÿ™‚ Too funny!

Jerry & Hannah were married last weekend in New Orleans, LA. We traveled down a day early to sight-see, scout shooting locations and spend time with the couple shooting their Engagement photos the day before the wedding. Jerry & Hannah are both from New Orleans and it was so much fun walking the streets of the French Quarter with them, hearing what they love about their city! Arriving early Friday morning to the French Quarter was definitely the right move. We had the streets to ourselves, beat the heat, then Luke and I spent the day enjoying more of the Louisiana city that brought Jerry & Hannah together! Hope you all enjoy this sneak peek of their engagement photos…Wedding Sneak Peak coming soon ๐Ÿ™‚
