Sara and Troy: Engagement


I love engagement sessions where our couples put a personal spin on things.  Sara and Troy first met at a mutual friend’s lakehouse so it was such a unique personal backdrop for their engagement session.  We spent the afternoon exploring the lake, hopping in and out of the car at picturesque locations, and just hanging out.  It was awesome!

Another great shot from my fabulous second shooter aka husband Adam!


Although my allergies disagreed, my camera loved the grasses and weeds everywhere.



Sara was such a rockstar in these heels ~ seriously ~ we were climbing on rocks, walking down trails, etc … I can’t even walk down the street in shoes like that!



I love these next two just by the lakehouse of that fateful first meeting.


When we first arrived, Sara and Troy were joking about taking pictures by the half-finished cabin on the property … of course I was all over that!!  Be careful what you joke about …


Sara and Troy, we can’t wait for your wedding!  I know it’s going to be just as unique as your engagement session!

Lisa and Kevin: Wedding


Last Saturday, Adam and I got to go to Birmingham, AL for Lisa and Kevin’s wedding.  Birmingham is my college town and it’s always so fun to be back in the old stomping grounds.  I have to admit the humidity was a bit of a shock for our Southern California bodies, but the day was beautiful and we loved being a part of their big day!

Lisa was one of the most laid-back brides I’ve ever seen!  She seemed so relaxed all day!




A few moments before walking down the aisle:


They’re married!!



I’ll close with my very favorite image from the reception.  I’ve been sitting at my desk here giggling out loud to myself about it … I guess it was a long day for some people!


Congratulations Lisa and Kevin!  Thanks so much for including us as part of your wedding celebration!

Coen: 1 year


Coen’s 1 year session was a morning of on-the-go!  He’s at that awesome stage where walking/running are SO much fun but totally uncontrollable.  I think I got my workout in for the day following him around!

One thing I really believe in for kid sessions is letting them take the lead.  I love just letting them be themselves and capturing that as it unfolds.  Plus, they’re usually a lot happier when we aren’t trying to force them to do something they’re not into!

Here are a few favorites of sweet Coen ~ his smile is just the best!!






I think the untied shoelaces just make this one even better!!

A few favorite details:



The beautiful bride!



Tommy hanging out with his groomsmen who are all from Orange County ~ it was so fun to have a meeting of our 2 worlds ~ Southern California and Nashville!


After the ceremony ~ officially Mr. and Mrs.!



The reception was at one of my favorite Nashville locations, Hillwood Country Club:


I love this ~ it totally looks like Jennifer is floating! And maybe she was just a little bit …



What a beautiful night for a great couple! Congratulations, you guys!!

Jamie and Shane: Engagement

I promise that we do actually shoot things besides engagement sessions! I think this is 5 engagement posts in a row? It’s just that time of year … wedding pre-season … where we get to spend some more casual time with our couples.

I have to admit ~ I l-o-v-e engagement sessions. First, they are just fun for me because I get to spend some time with each couple before their big day. Plus, I feel like they are a fun “practice” for the bride and groom to get used to me and to having their picture taken.


Jamie and Shane’s engagement session was great! We love having an excuse to hang out down at the beach. Their wedding is just a couple of weeks away, so I was so glad we could squeeze in some time with them. They were naturals in front of the camera and with each other … I’m even more excited now about their wedding!!
