Our Approach to Wedding Photography

We won’t over pose you (constantly telling you to tilt your head painfully to the side) or force you to stare into our cameras for 4 hours on your wedding day while you conjure up fake smile after fake smile. What we will do is put you in fabulous light and document the story of your wedding day!


Not a huge fan of having your photo taken (for hours at a time)?  No problem!  Most of our couples really don’t like having their picture taken (until they meet us!).  We specialize in capturing real, authentic, BEAUTIFUL moments that celebrate your love.  Best of all the process is really FUN and you will have some kick-ass photographs that won’t look boring or dated in ten years


If that sounds like what you are looking for go ahead and contact us so we can setup a time to chat over some coffee or drinks.  Your search for an awesome Nashville wedding photographer is over!

Opryland Hotel | Nashville, TN

Dawn and Keith’s wedding was so beautiful.  The spot that Dawn and Keith choose for their wedding, The Magnolia Courtyard at the Gaylord Opryland was perfect for them. After the ceremony Dawn and Keith and I explored Opryland and got some amazing photos before heading off to the reception.  See their beautiful Opryland Hotel wedding photographs here

Catherine + Zach

Hermitage Golf Course | Hermitage, TN

I had been looking forward to Catherine and Zach’s wedding since I met them last year for their engagement photos.  The Hermitage Golf Course was a beautiful backdrop for their wedding.  Catherine and Zach were both in great spirits even as lightning forced us back inside during their first look.  After the storm passed we had a great time riding around on golf carts taking some great photos of them and their bridal party.  Click here to see the full story of their wedding day!

Amy + Tara

Travellers Rest | Nashville, TN

Amy and Tara’s wedding was such a special celebration of their love for each other.  I loved that they chose to get ready together but kept their dresses as a surprise from each other.  This made their first look really fun and a great reveal.  I absolutely love all of the details from their wedding from the beautiful bouquets (which were unique to each of their personalities), their matching TOMS and all of the decorations at Travellers Rest!  Click here to see the full story of their wedding day.

Andrea + Ted

The aVenue | Nashville, TN

After speaking with Andrea and Ted I knew that there wedding was going to be a very fun event with lots of special details (the exact type of wedding we love to photography!).  When I met them on their wedding day I felt like I already knew them and they treated me and my team like we had been friends for a long time.  Andrea and Ted’s bridesmaids and groomsmen were so much fun and made the day very memorable from the morning when we first started taking photos all the way through to the end of the reception.  Click here to see the full story of their wedding day!
