Nashville Engagement Photographer | Amanda & Michael
First things first, North Carolina is awesome and extremely underrated. Secondly, and more importantly, Amanda and Michael are two of the best people we have ever met.
After a 5 hour drive from Nashville, we were greeted by towering mountains and forests. If you've never been to the Great Smoky Mountains or Blue ridge Mountains, you're totally missing out. Between large mountains, waterfalls, and pine forests, the area is definitely not lacking in the scenery department.
After spending a few hours in the car with these two, it was pretty clear that we were about to have an incredible two days. Michael and Amanda are two of the ...

Nashville Wedding Photographer | Danielle and Nick |Elopement
Man oh man. As everyone has figured out by now, we love to chase waterfalls and TLC wouldn't be too happy with us.
When Danielle first reached out to us about shooting her and Nick's elopement, there was no question that we were in. Danielle and Nick were high school sweethearts and grew up around Tampa, Florida. Since Florida is lacking in the whole "mountains and waterfalls" department, they decided to drive up to the Georgia/Tennessee line and seal the deal in some place beautiful. Being a wedding photographer near Nashville has it perks due to the fact there are dozens of beautiful locations no more than a few hours away!

Nashville Wedding Photography | Intimate Backyard Wedding | Rory & Cara
Nashville Wedding Photography | Intimate Back Yard Wedding | Rory and Cara // We are total suckers for small and intimate weddings. The idea of having those closest to you and remembering what a wedding is truly about is such a beautiful thing for us to capture. Unlike a lot of the weddings we shoot, we were asked to shoot this wedding just 3 weeks before it was taking place. We had barely spoken to these two and were going in blindly. But after meeting Cara and Rory and witnessing the immense amount of love these two have for each other, it all made sense. Cara and Rory are both talented musicians and share a passion for art. If you haven't ...

Nashville Wedding Photographers | Maegan & Adam | Meadow Hill Farm
Nashville Wedding Photographer | Maegan & Adam | Meadow Hill Farm
Another beautiful Nashville Wedding in the books! We met Maegan and Adam last October when we first moved to the Nashville area! It was such a pleasure to get to share their special day with them at the beautiful Meadow Hill Farm. We are also getting married here next year! ( Thanks for the tip, Maegan ;) )
We are so excited to share these photos from this beautiful wedding! Enjoy!

Nashville Wedding Photographer | Madison & Hayden
Grab your tissues. For real.
We are pretty excited to have been fortunate enough to capture such a big day in Madison and Hayden's lives. I can't say enough about the kindness of these two and how incredible it was to work with them.
On top of an incredibly beautiful and well designed wedding, I can honestly say this wedding was just fun and relaxed. The focus of the day was on the marriage of two incredible people and less about the small things that are easy to get caught up in. At the end of the day, Madison and Hayden were just ready to be married to each other.
Also, a huge thank you goes to Bj Matthews (who is also shooting our ...

Nashville Wedding Photographer | Sara & Casey | Moss Mountain Farm Engagement
Another awesome engagement session in the books? YEP.
Sara and Casey were total pros at this whole engagement photo thing and were extremely fun to hangout with for a few hours. Between blaring 90's and Savage Garden Pandora (I'm still a Spotify snob. Sorry Casey!) and basically laughing and joking the entire session, we were able to capture some awesome photos for these two.
We are so darn excited to shoot their wedding here at Moss Mountain later this year!

Nashville Wedding Photographer | Whimsical Forest Bridal Styled Shoot
We’ve had a bit of an obsession here lately with wedding dresses and that is totally okay with us.
Once again, we got to work with an incredible dress shop called The Dress Theory. As we mentioned in our previous post, their dresses are incredibly gorgeous and unique. In addition to that, we were fortunate enough to work with Haley Weathers from The Block Agency! Haley was awesome enough to withstand my craziness and stand on the edge a cliff to get “the shot.” Here’s a little commentary from the shoot:
Cody: “If you fall, you can sue me!!”
Haley: “If I fall, I die.”
Okay, so that sounds way more scary and intense but I promise it was f ...

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 fl ...

Nashville Wedding Photographer | Emily & Jacob | Waterfall Day-After Session
Wow. Just wow.
Emily and Jacob truly encompass everything that is love. When Emily reached out to us and told me her and Jacob would be coming up to Nashville and wanted to shoot, I was all in. Emily and Jacob are both photographers as well so I knew we'd definitely make some magic happen and that they'd be down for pretty much anything. These two weren't able to have everything they wanted captured on their wedding day so it was such an honor to be able to take these photos for them. Weddings are crazy sometimes and sometimes time for just the bride and groom to reflect on their life together doesn't always fit into the schedule. That's w ...

Nashville Photographer | Devynne Diaz II | Big announcement!
Now that I have your attention, here are some photos from a recent shoot I did with with Devynne Diaz from Sculp Agency.
Shooting indoors isn't something that I do a lot of so getting out of my comfort zone was totally worth it and has totally opened some new ideas for some upcoming engagement shoots. I'll give you a hint, they all include some rad Airbnbs.
Also, we have some big news to share with everyone! We have officially launched Forest + Falls Workshop! We will be co-hosting with B. Matthews Creative to bring one of largest photo camps to the southern region! In addition to this, we will also be speaking at the workshop ...

Bj Matthews, a good friend (as well as our wedding photographer) and Jessica Humerick helped put together this shoot and make some magic happen.

Nashville Wedding Photographer | Sam & Josh | Fall Creek Falls State Park
Don't go chasin' waterfalls.
Well, too late. We did! We probably made that joke at least 10 times during this session. Sam, Josh and ourselves traveled two hours outside of Nashville to venture to the highest waterfall in the Eastern US, Fall Creek Falls. At 256 feet tall, this thing is ginormous!
Any other time of the year, this waterfall is roaring and nearly impossible to get as close as we did. Luckily, Sam and Josh were able to get down in the water and get all lovey and stuff.
We can't explain my excitement for this session and we are super excited to share these photos with you guys!
Cody & Allison ...
