Jennifer & Ross  

Sometimes I think that I have seen the most beauitful weddings I'm ever going to see.  And then a wedding like this happens.  And I'll be honest, while the decor and location and flowers were GORGEOUS the beauty really came from the hearts of Jennifer & Ross.  They just seemed so gracious all day.  The picture above is my absolute favorite.  It happened right after the ceremony exit and it just seemed as Jennifer took this beautiful breathe to take it all in and look at the people she loves most in the world who came to support her and her new husband.  I adore their thankful hearts.  Couple that with some mis-matched heirloom china, elegant bride and groom chocolate dipped pretzels, and a room filled with exposed brick and twinkle lights - this photographer was in heaven.  As promised, here are more photos from their magical day...

I have so many more pictures to post from this wedding but for now...



The Peter-Fritts Family

Oh how much can change in a year.  These two are about to celebrate their 1 year anniversary and they will do it being a little sleep deprived since they have recently added baby Xavier to their family.  Or should I say, baby model Xavier?  I've never seen a 1 month old baby work the camer like this little man did.  Clearly, Donny has been giving him lessons.  I'm beyond excited to share some of these sweet photos.  Special thanks to The Standard for letting us use their incredible space.  Enjoy!


This is clearly how Jackson really feels about not being the only baby in the house...



Drew's Senior Photos

With everyone heading back to school this week, I could think of no better day then to share some senior photos!  I had so much fun capturing Drew's senior photos on a perfect August evening at the Knoxville Botanical Gardens.  I've always hated August for it's heat and humidity but this one doesn't seem to be so bad.  And there are touches of fall starting to pop up everywhere so it wasn't unbearable for Drew to wear a sweater.  At least I don't think so.  Here are some of my favorites from his session.  We also got to get some photos of his siblings - Riley & Molly.  Molly just happened to be a flower girl in a wedding I shot 3 years ago.  Wow, how time flies. What a sweet group of kids...


Amanda & Matthew  


Weddings are sentimentally beautiful for so many reasons.  The joining of families and the thoughts of those that couldn't be there and a lot of love sprinkled in there and it can be so sweet to capture.  Amanda thought about her grandpa a lot on the day of her wedding.  She wore one of his old shirts as she got her hair and make-up done, when she prayed she remembered that he was with her and when she walked down the aisle, she carried a photo of the two of them on her gorgeous boquet.  Her grandpa loved trains so it was only fitting that Amanda & Matthew have their recpetion at The Southern Depot.  

But for every tear that day, there was also a beautiful smile that doned Amanda's face as she got to marry the guy she loves.  And while it rained all morning, the sun came out for photos and stayed.  Amanda said on facebook that morning, "Rain or shine I still get to marry Matthew and start our new amazing adventurous life together."  Perfection!
