Sydney & Phil live in Brooklyn but met and grew up here in Tennessee. Their story is one of a high school crush, best friend match-making, and 10 years later, a Nashville wedding. Their “match-maker” married them. Friends wrote a poem that they read during the ceremony and another friend made their cakes. They are lovely, their family is lovely, and their friends are lovely. Everything was beautiful and understated in the best way. Sydney wore a long silver dress and their catering was done via two different food trucks. It was a pleasure to photograph.

I love Amanda and Russell. I traveled out of Nashville to Trenton, Kentucky, for this engagement session. Amanda and Russell’s wedding is taking place on Russell’s family farm, and they wanted to do engagement photographs there as well. Russell’s grandfather bought the land and built a house on the property in the 50′s. There are two houses on the property, and Russell’s parents and now Russell live there. It is gorgeous, and I love when we get to incorporate places that are a part of a couple’s story. Plus I got to drive a Gator. Which was awesome.
This photograph I feel is a perfect representation of Allison & Ray. Allison and Ray met while they were both attending Notre Dame. Ray had his heart set on Allison the first day that he saw her. He worked his way into the good graces of her best friend, and with much reluctance, the best friend set them up. Their first date was Valentine’s Day, and every restaurant was booked. Ray, being Ray, set up a romantic table at Wendy’s. They have been together ever since. Allison and Ray’s ceremony was at The Cathedral of the Incarnation, but they opted to do their wedding portrait photographs in a more natural like setting as they both love outdoor activities. Ray even proposed at the base of a waterfall. Their wedding colors were green and blue in honor of Notre Dame. The reception was held at the Historic War Memorial Auditorium. As always, it was wonderful to work with Kristin Kaplan of Simply Stunning Events. Design and florals were done by Hillary Yeager of Brocade Designs. The tables had driftwood, roses, succulents and moss to give the vintage building a splash of the outdoors. The cowboy boot coozie, and the Allison & Ray Playlist CD’s designed to look like records were a nod to Nashville as almost all of their guests were coming from out-of-state. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed working with these two.The moment that every best man has nightmares about – dropping the ring.Special thanks to:
