I got a call early one morning from Angela Proffitt asking if I was available to photograph a proposal at Arrington Vineyards that evening. Jose was going to propose to Katie and he wanted someone to capture it. Proposals are tricky because you can’t be seen and it’s really hard to disguise yourself when you have a huge lens and all of your gear hanging off of you. Well Katie had no clue. In fact, she was somewhat disappointed because she thought that this beautiful picnic would have been the perfect moment for Jose to pop the question and she didn’t think he was going to. Little did she know that he was going to do exactly that. Jose acted like they were packing up and then dropped to one knee and asked Katie to be his wife. Congratulations guys!
This past Thursday I was able to visit a fairly new wedding venue just a little outside of Nashville called Iriswoods. Babs was nice enough to show me the property and let me take a few photograghs! You can read more information about Iriswoods by clicking HERE.
From their website- Iriswoods is a circa 1850’s historic log home with breathtaking views from every angle. With multiple locations on the property for your wedding ceremony, a 3,200 sq. ft. patio with a 40 x 80 tent complete with ceiling draping and crystal chandeliers for your reception, and a fully decorated log home equipped with a designer bridal suite and groom’s room. Iriswoods is certainly the venue for you to celebrate one of the happiest days of your life!
Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage had their VIP Wedding Open House last Sunday in Nashville and they asked me to do the photography for a style shoot in the gardens of The Hermitage while the show was going on. The setup was GORGEOUS and besides the torrential downpour in the middle of of the shoot, we all had a blast. A huge shout out to Emily from The Hermitage for setting all of this up! Thank you to all of the fantastic vendors that participated and a huge thank you to the adorable couple Grace and Sammy for being my models. Below are some of my favorite images!
