I first met Nathan and Emily at George and Lauren's gorgeous wedding. We would eventually meet-up in Columbia at Muletown for coffee and for me to hear about their love story. Since their wedding is going to be at Meadow Hill Farm in October, we also did their engagement session there too. It was a bit chilly, but it warmed up quickly once the dancing started. Dancing? Yes! At some point during the session, I usually ask my couples for their best dance moves. If there's any tension, that flies out the window in moments. Haha. It's about being able to laugh one minute and be vulnerable the next. Emily's tears truly represent how blessed she feels to marry the man of her dreams in October. I am blessed to be capturing their day.

This was my first time at Battle Mountain Farm and I loved everything about it! The antique farmhouse, the light streaming through the windows, separate houses for the bride and groom to get ready at, the old front porch and the cattle roaming the property were some of my favorite aspects of the venue. Here's a little secret for you... there's a little cabin tucked away about a mile behind the property. That's where Trey + Amber had their first look and spent their first night as Mr. and Mrs.
Amber is as sweet as pecan pie and her outside beauty is equally as stunning. Her hair is possibly the most beautiful color of natural red I have ever seen. Trey has such a great sense of humor and occasionally recites quotes from his favorite movie "Lonesome Dove" (one of my all time faves too). You can see the love that Trey professes for Amber in the way he looks at her. They've known each other for quite some time, as they attended high school together. Life would take hold and they would go their separate ways only to be reconnected again. God wrote them a beautiful love story.
Thank you to Jessica Hamilton for allowing me to collaborate with her on this gorgeous wedding.
I was planning a trip to Colorado about the same time I received an email from bride-to-be Vanessa. JP and Vanessa, now married, met and live in Colorado. Coincidence? Vanessa is from Nashville and they would be getting married at the Historic Stone Hall. It's a beautiful venue; especially for intimate weddings. Vanessa conveyed that their wedding would be small with only their dearest family and friends surrounding them. I loved the sound of everything they had planned and that she wanted a journalistic feel to the day. That's truly my favorite way to capture weddings.
My favorite part during the wedding may have been when Vanessa said 'vows' to JP's young daughter, Paley. After the wedding, guests were treated to one of the best hot chicken venues Nashville has to offer, Hattie B's. In fact, JP got so excited when Hattie B's arrived that he asked me to stop their portraits to take a photo of the Hattie B's airstream pulling up. =) That's dedication to a favorite restaurant. The celebration only got better when The John Tomlin & Company Band started playing. They were AH-MAH-ZING! If you love or even like Bluegrass then you gotta hear them! My favorite part of the night was when Vanessa laid old quilts on the ground for guests to sit on. The quilts were sewn by her grandmother. As a quilt maker (ok I've only made two) and lover of quilts, this made my heart swoon. I wish them a lifetime of happiness!

I met Alyssa a few years ago when I photographed a family session at her sister's house. Talk about a welcoming, sweet family. I felt beyond honored when asked to photograph Alyssa + Rich's intimate wedding just a few days before Christmas. They married at the historic Ferguson Hall in Spring Hill, Tennessee.
