Before Christmas this very sweet couple, their adorable dogs, and I headed out to Leiper’s Fork outside of Nashville, TN to photograph their engagement session. Charlie and Gus told me that they are really excited that their mom and dad (Kathyrn and Matt) are getting married. I whole heartedly agree with the pups!
This was the first wedding that I photographed in 2015 and gosh it set the bar high for this year. I met Erin over the phone while she and Victor were living in Brooklyn NYC. We instantly hit it off and we spent a long time talking about the craziness that is wedding planning. This is what I have learned over the past year that I have worked with Erin and Victor- they are the most gracious people. They are also quirky. Gracious and quirky is my favorite combination. Their Christmas cards usually involve photoshopping their faces onto some current pop culture photo phenomenon. I was in love with my clients. This January I got to meet their families and friends and hear all of the wonderful things everyone had to say about Erin and Victor and how much everyone was in love with them as well.
I had the good fortune of being able to work with some of the best professionals in town on this wedding. Erin and Victor wanted a romantic, classic wedding at The Symphony Center with a modern twist and their vendors made it happen! Special thanks to everyone that made this stunning event- Angela Proffitt, Jay Qualls, Lauren Marie Atkinson Designs, Chefs Market, Visual Elements, Music City Tents and Events, Heidi at Damali NYC, Nashville Event Lighting, Karen Hendrix Couture, Higher Ground Band, Nuage Designs, Graceful Tables, Matchless Transportation, and Street Tuxedo.

When Meghann said that she wanted to do a Wes Anderson inspired engagement shoot, I was super excited. Meghann and Chris like to go camping and spend as much time outside as possible so they chose a favorite campground outside of Nasvhille, TN and set up a pup tent when they got there. This was all them! We had a gorgeous fall day with gorgeous fall light! Please enjoy!
Ashton and Ruddy are getting married in a couple weeks! For once I’m posting a blog from their engagement session BEFORE their wedding. I’m really proud of myself. Here are a few photographs from my new favorite location that the three of us discovered via Yelp. I cannot wait for your wedding!
