Ranran & Haonan | Yosemite Elopement
Summing this day into a paragraph or two of words is going to be tough. Ranran and Haonan reached out to us and said they were wanting to fly all the way from China to get married in Northern California, I was SO dang stoked. These two were open to suggestions on where to get married and of course, Yosemite National Park is always the first place that comes to mind. I remembered seeing Yosemite for the first time back in February early this year and being blown away at it's beauty and vastness. It is truly one of the most unique and beautiful places I've ever been to. Not only does it offer mountains ...

Jacey & Dylan | Black Balsam Knob Engagement Session
Jacey & Dylan | Black Balsam Knob Engagement Session // So, what's the first thing you do when a couple with two Boston Terriers reaches out to have you shoot their wedding? You do it. Duh. Seriously, our first meeting with them was a puppy play date and dinner at our place. First date goals, right?
Jacey and Dylan opted to do an adventure session in the mountains of North Carolina near Black Balsam Knob. Which if you can't tell, is a favorite spot of ours! We had such a wonderful time getting to know these two and getting to talk about life over some amazing tacos along the way! When we arrived, we were greeted with a beautiful sunny ...

Janine & Ian | Intimate Bohemian Wedding
Janine & Ian | Intimate Bohemian Wedding // It's hard to think of days that are much better than this one. When we initially talked to Janine and Ian, there was no doubt we were excited to be the ones to capture their wedding day! They told us how they wanted their wedding to feel like a dinner party with all of their closest friends and family. And that's exactly what they did! Janine and Ian had come all the way from New York city to celebrate in Oxford, MS, not far from where Ian grew up! There was so much personality and thoughtfulness put into the design of this wedding as well. Janine and Ian are both really talented artists and ha ...

Looking Glass Falls Elopement
A Looking Glass Falls Elopement // Dang oh dang. When Amanda and Tyler first reached out and told us what they wanted to do as their "wedding", we were so dang excited! They were planning to go get married at the courthouse and immediately head to the mountains to share in an adventure together! We arrived in Asheville the night before, grabbed some tacos together and headed back to the Yurt that Amanda and Tyler rented! We spent the night getting to know these two and listening to them play some of their written songs together! Amanda and Tyler are actually extremely talented musicians as well!
The next day, we went on a full out adventur ...

Abbey & Jake | Black Balsam Knob Engagement
Abbey & Jake
Black Balsam Knob Engagement // Dang. Just dang. We literally had the best time hanging out with Abbey and Jake at Looking Glass Falls, Black Balsam Knob and some other gorgeous areas on the Blue Ridge Parkway. When we first met Abbey and Jake, it was more than obvious we had to shoot their wedding. These two are some of the most sweet and genuine people you could know. We started the day with a long drive into the mountains for their shoot and ended it eating some of Jake's dad's famous Chili. Seriously, I might have to go get Chili after writing about this now! It's always great to spend some quality time with our couples. ...

Riverwood Mansion Wedding Photographer | Moody Modern Wedding Inspiration
Riverwood Mansion Wedding Photographer | Moody Modern Wedding Inspiration // Back in November, we had the awesome opportunity to work with some incredible vendors on a really unique styled shoot! We wanted something that incorporated color but still played into the dark and moody tones of winter and fall. We also took a unique approach to incorporate various cocktail recipes that played into the colors, tones and seasonality of this shoot! A huge thanks to all of the awesome vendors and models that dedicated their time to capture some rad wedding inspiration! Check out some of our favorites below!

Alena & Jacob | Iceland Elopement
Alena & Jacob // Iceland Elopement.
Summing Iceland along with this entire trip into words is dang near impossible. Iceland is one of those places that simply doesn't feel like part of this world! Words can't describe the excitement Allison and I felt when Jacob and Alena asked us to take part in their Iceland elopement! Jacob and Alena are two extremely wonderful people who's love for each other is more than evident. They're also both talented photographers themselves!
The first night, Alena and Jacob opted to write their vows together, something we've never seen before! It was such a great experience to watch them put on some mood t ...

Luca & Annie | Nashville Engagement Photographers
Nashville Engagement Photographers.
Well holy moly gosh almighty. Do you ever meet two people who are super in love and just say to yourself, "goals ."? After meeting Luca & Annie, I certainly did. Every photographer in the world would be a liar if they said they never get nervous before shooting. We crack ourselves up sometimes because we get it in our heads that we are going to forget everything we know! On the contrary, I literally love just wingin' it. You can plan as much as you want for the style or mood of the shoot, but I think what's most exciting is seeing the authentic energy and love a couple brings.
You see, I had never ...

Chelsea & Jeremiah | Chattanooga Wedding Photographer
Chattanooga Wedding Photographer.
When we originally met Chelsea, she was planning her wedding for early spring of this year. As fate so had it, we received a text from Chelsea saying that the wedding was having to be moved to December 27th, 2016 due to scheduling with the military. Which was just a few weeks away.
Obviously, we were available and were so excited how the change of plans worked out. Even down to the day of the wedding, the locations for a good bulk of these photos was completely changed. It basically rained the entire morning. Instead of going out to the original venue that was filled with beautiful areas to shoot around, ...

Chelsea and Misha | Olympic National Park Couple’s Session
Olympic National Park Couple's Session
Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park is easily one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. I think one of our favorite things about what we do is being able to hop in a car with a couple and just drive to the middle of nowhere for their session. Chelsea and Misha picked me up from the ferry ride that I literally sprinted to catch on time before heading out to Olympic National Park! It was so rad to get to know these two on the way over and to nearly get lost trying to find our location. I can't wait to make it back out to the area to teach at Over Yonder Hideaway!
Here are s ...

Best of 2016 | Nashville Wedding Photographer
Best of 2016 / Nashville Wedding Photographer
Dang, what a year 2016 has been. I warn you that this will be a pretty long post so just sit tight and grab some pizza!
2016 was a year or learning. It was a year of figuring out what we really wanted this business to be. It was a year of gaining some of the best friends ever. As most people know, Allison has a job other than photography that she absolutely loves. I had actually moved to Nashville to be with her when she accepted her new job. I was going to film school full time and shooting weddings on the side so I could make ends meet.
Fast forward to January 2016. I'm sitting in our parkin ...

Martha Drake & Kristian | Old Edwards Farm Wedding
Martha & Kristian | Old Edwards Farm Wedding
A beautiful fall Old Edwards Farm Wedding. // Seriously, this wedding was extremely dreamy and gave us all the feels. The Old Edwards Farm is this gorgeous venue nestled in the Mountains near Highlands, North Carolina. Highlands is your storybook town with a characteristic New England vibe!
The moment Martha Drake and Kristian reached out to us to shoot their wedding, we were ecstatic. The way they described their wedding was just dreamy. (I'll say dreamy a ton in this post. oh well!) We couldn't help but love the fall weather, the love that was super radiant from everyone and then the su ...
