Erin + Seth Wedding

Erin + Seth had a gorgeous wedding last weekend in downtown Nashville! 

While the ladies relaxed in their suite at the Omni, the guys headed down to Broadway, played spoons with street musicians and checked out the sights. The day turned out beautiful as we captured their formal session with Nashville as the perfect backdrop, and spent the evening at the Bridge Building overlooking the Cumberland River.  All in all, it was another great wedding in our favorite city! 

Congrats Erin + Seth!

Enjoy this preview of their big day...

Nicole + Bryan Wedding

When Nicole + Bryan approached us about their wedding they wanted to do something unique for their special day. They had selected the gorgeous venue at A&E Farm in College Grove, TN. They wanted a small, private, boutique wedding, surrounded by close friends and family. Anita the venue owner and host was amazing! Nicole + Bryan not only utilized the gorgeous home for their wedding but also to relax and prepare for their big day by spending the weekend at the house. 

The forecast once again called for rain, and rain it did!  However, Nicole + Bryan never broke stride.  With such a beautiful location and such an intimate day, we took our time, capturing all the special details in the decor, and let Nicole + Bryan take their time getting ready. After the ceremony the dark clouds and rain rolled away to reveal a spectacular sunset!  (There's a timelapse video of this below!)

We were in a perfect location, with nothing to do but celebrate and capture the love that Nicole + Bryan share for one another. We think we nailed it, but we'll let you take a look and decide for yourselves. 

Congrats again Nicole + Bryan, it was a perfect day! 

Jennifer + Chad Wedding

Sunday was another rainy wedding! Jennifer + Chad had selected the historic Belle Meade Plantation  for their wedding venue. We were pumped about shooting there despite the weather. While Saturday graced us with a few shining moments of clear skies there was no such luck on Sunday. Jennifer was all class.  Her and her bridesmaids were stunning! We loved their dresses' color palette which was perfect with the wet and vibrant environment.

The whole wedding party was amazing for not letting the stress of the inclement weather bother them. Rain can be such an overbearing presence on the day that's supposed to be perfect. It's always a privilege to shoot couples who roll with the punches and have a great time regardless of circumstances. Jennifer + Chad, nailed it. We couldn't ask for a more resilient and in love couple for a rainy Sunday afternoon!

We hope you fall in love with Jennifer + Chad's wedding as much as we have. 

Rene + Pete Wedding

Man, what a day we had Saturday! We headed out to Sinking Creek Farm for Rene + Pete's wedding. We were lucky enough to also shoot Rene's daughter, Heather, and her husband Reed's wedding in 2015. 

Saturday was rainy and dark. As we headed to Sinking Creek Farm we were watching the radar, hatching our game plan, and devising our strategy for making sure Rene felt gorgeous and was not stressed about the weather at all. Rene + Pete were hopeful the weather would turn out fine. Fast forward to the ceremony and the weather was only getting worse. However, as the ceremony ended, one of the craziest things we've ever seen happened. After Rene + Pete headed out from their first kiss, all of a sudden the rain stopped and the clouds parted revealing the sun and a gorgeous rainbow. Their day turned out beautiful and we were able to capture some really great moments despite the rain. 

Enjoy this preview of Rene + Pete's rainy Sinking Creek wedding!  

Hermitage Hotel Style Shoot

We recently got the chance to collaborate with some great folks in the Wedding and Event Industry.

We worked on a style shoot with T. Villager Design Florals, Graceful Tables Linen and the legendary Hermitage Hotel. It was so fun, and the talent involved is so evident. We loved getting to work with these folks and can't wait to do it again real soon! 

Cheers! 

 

Heather + Thomas

We went with Heather + Thomas to shoot their engagement at Clover Bottom Mansion. A great historic estate in Donelson, Just outside of Nashville. We love walking around the estate with these two during the seasons golden hour.

Heather + Thomas were a joy to capture, like walking around taking photos of old friends.

Enjoy their preview!

Rustic/Countryside

One of our favorite locations for shooting outdoors and off the beaten path is Bloomsbury farm. Its a little drive outside of Nashville, but the rustic natural beauty of this working organic farm is well worth it. Not only is it a working farm, but it's also a gorgeous wedding venue, which we highly recommend!

Okay, so this one is NOT in Nashville, but it's only a short day's drive away and it's beautiful!  If you are up for a little drive with your photographer and are feeling adventurous then this destination for some engagement photos definitely won't disappoint!

Autumn + Scott Enagement

Shooting Autumn + Scott's engagement was our first opportunity to see Graystone Quarry. We must say, it is an amazing venue and there's not another couple we would have rather had with us than these two! They were perfect, ready for anything, and of course, so gorgeous!

We can't wait to share their wedding with you later this year, but for now, enjoy this preview of their engagement shoot!
