Nashville Wedding Photographer | Rock Quarry Styled Shoot
This might be one of our favorite shoots ever. No joke. Samantha Coyle with The Block Agency was such an awesome choice for this shoot! It was refreshing to be able to let her express herself in front of my camera and for the first time ever, give only small direction.
So about the shoot…
I’ve been itching to shoot some sort of bridal photos here lately but knew right from the beginning I wanted them to be different. I wanted to bring a different idea or concept and just break the rules. Anyone who knows me knows I break the rules…a lot. Promise I have a clean record, however!
As much as Allison and I are suckers for beautiful florals, we opted to not go that route this time around. Seeing as how we were shooting in a rock quarry we have decided quartz crystal is the new floral. Just kidding. What was interesting and coincidental enough was the fact that the crystal cluster we borrowed from Art and Invention was that it was dug just a few miles from my childhood home from one of the same crystal yards my father used to take me to when I was young. My father had a bit of a fascination with crystals and it was extremely awesome to pay homage to him.
Lastly, I want to take a moment to give a shoutout to The Dress Theory and Sarah Seven for this incredible dress. Seriously ladies, check them out! We are a tad bit obsessed with their selection at the moment. We also want to thank Graystone Quarry, a new wedding venue opening soon in Franklin, Tennessee for letting us use their beautiful property!
For photographers: We switched to Canon! We know some of you photography gurus might notice a slight change in the tonality of our work and that’s all intentional. We are making steps at developing more of a style that is cohesive with what is below and are beyond excited about it! These were all shot with two Canon 5DMKIIIs and a 6D with 35Lii, 50L, 85Lii .
We are going to start making it a point to share more tips, tricks, and inspiration behind our shoots so if you don’t get tired of reading the novels above, check it out!
