Marie reached out to me about photographing her wedding but unfortunately I was already booked on her date. Even though I couldn’t photograph her wedding she really wanted me to shoot her engagement photos and she gave me free reign to choose the location. Rock Island is one of my favorite parks in all of Tennessee. I absolutely love the waterfalls and how many beautiful backdrops there are for photos. I try to make it out to the park several times a year just to hike around and explore. Sometimes the dam is opened and the water is too high to hike out into the middle of the rocks but that wasn’t the case when we went out for Marie and Daniel’s photo session.

Marie and Daniel were both super adventurous, which you need to be to get to some of these locations. I absolutely love how still the water was in some places so we could get some great reflection shots. Those photos contrast perfectly with the powerful waterfalls in the park. It was so much fun exploring the park and showing them some of my favorite locations. 🙂
