Nashville Wedding Photographer | Jamie & Erik | Leo Carillo State Beach

LanternNashville Wedding Photographers | Jamie & Erik | Leo Carillo State Beach

Holy Moly Guacamole.

I literally went through this whole session questioning if this was real life.

For those who don’t know, we live in Nashville, Tennessee. There are no mountains or beaches here. So naturally, I was photographers heaven. We caught the sunset on Leo Carillo Beach right out side of LA in California and boy oh boy, Jamie and Erik helped make some magic happen! For those who have never seen Leo Carillo beach, it is this beautiful area with some rad rocks and caves along the west coast.  Jamie is an extremely talented photographer and Erik is a gifted writer!

We met Jamie through an online Facebook group for photography education and when we put out that we were visiting the west coast and wanted to shoot, we connected with these two awesome people!

Also! A huge thanks to Heather Hawley for helping me with this session! I know she snapped some magic as well out there!

We couldn't help but love the  fall weather, the love that was super radiant from everyone and then the su ...
Lauren Staub | Just Go Shoot
HOLY MOLY! I AM SO EXCITED TO SHARE THIS SET OF PHOTOS WITH YOU GUYS! I met Lauren when we were planning a shoot that is coming up in a few weeks. When Nashville got nailed with snow this past week, my first thought, other than making snow ice cream, was to get out and shoot! Making myself get out and shoot is always a wonderful way to spark creativity and try new things as well as experiment. In this case, I focused on variations of different poses and composition to create a totally different photo without changing much at all.  My best advice to any photographer is pretty darn simple. Just go shoot. Whether it's paid or not or the 'perfec ...
Nashville, Tennessee | Traveler’s Rest Wedding | Adrienne & Sean
  Dang,  we are  pretty excited to share this wedding. We first met Adrienne and Sean back in winter at Starbucks of all places. Except, there were no seats left at Starbucks. So we went next door to the Fedex copy and print store and used computer chairs to form a makeshift meeting space. After meeting these two, there was no doubt we wanted to shoot their wedding.  Anyone who spoke about Adrienne and Sean at their wedding first spoke of their kindness and sincerity. From the outside looking in, we can' ...
