I'm on a mission. I'm on a mission to teach young ladies all about self love. That every girl is beautiful, no matter their size, shape, color, or age. That you only get this one body in this one life. To make it the best it can be, and to treat it with the respect it deserves. That self love doesn't only mean appreciating your own body, your own face, your own feelings, but caring for those of your peers as well. I'm on a mission to not only make young ladies look natural and beautiful, but to feel beautiful!
Lindsay and Buck may not yet be married, but they've already got quite the family! We absolutely love it when couples want to include their fur babies in their photo session. Petunia, Percy, and Ty completely stole our hearts and added the perfect amount of energy to our summer garden engagement session. Keep scrolling to see their happy puppy antics!
I never thought a teenage girl, standing at the edge of Greers Ferry Lake with her thumbs hooked in her pockets, would be the one teaching me all about "flex." And I'm not talking about showing off your muscles. I'm talking about the angle of tilt that your off-road vehicle makes when it's climbing over large rocks. I'm sure there's a lot more technical words that go along with that, but basically, the more it looks like it's going to fall over, the better! Keep scrolling to see exactly what I'm talking about.
We sat with them over drinks one casual evening, learning a little more about each other and sharing lots of laughs. Bailey and Will booked us without ever meeting us first, so we wanted to get to know them a bit before we got them in front of our cameras. We spent very little time talking "business" and spent lots of time talking "life," and we loved them right away for that! By the time we all met again for their Tennessee farm engagement session, we were old friends! Which, as you will see, made for plenty of awesome photos! Keep a lookout for a couple of cow cameos!
Oh, you guys! I am SO over-the-moon excited to share this session today! I can't tell you how long I've been wanting to photograph a couple in a canoe. In formal clothes. In the lake. At sunset! It takes a special, adventurous couple to give us the trust and freedom for this type of shoot, and we found it in Val and Reed! They were not afraid of getting a little wet, and just WAIT until you see them standing up in the canoe! This one was one of our favorites for so many reasons!
Instead of flowers, he brought her a gold star. Everyone does flowers. Cody wanted to impress Tiffany, and give her something that would last and that she would remember. And, okay, maybe he was trying to get a laugh out of her too. Cody is a funny guy, laid-back and lighthearted, and girls love a guy who can make them laugh. It worked, as Tiffany has been charmed by him since the beginning!
This wedding already has such a special place in our hearts! The day was completely beautiful, from the preparation details to the huge magnolia garland curtain. But the one thing that most made the day so wonderful was the unique, AWESOME way that these two love! Laura and Evan are so in love, and you will soon see proof of that - it's impossible to miss. They put so much of themselves into their wedding, and that is what makes it an immediate favorite! It was a day full of heart, beauty, and personality!
For girls, turning 16 is a big deal. We've given each of our girls one big birthday party - on their sweet 16th birthday. It's the only one where we really go big. At least for our standards. Jessie is the last of our girls to turn 16, and all she asked for was a flower crown and a photoshoot. A girl after my own heart! We were more than happy to give in!
Kelli and Josh met at work. He's a pilot, and she worked at the same airline, so they would ocassionally bump into each other. Sometimes working in the same place puts a strain on a relationship, but that was never a problem for Kelli and Josh! They knew early on that if they could work together day in and day out, their relationship had promise!
Cheryl's and Omar's wedding was simply spectacular. The weather was great, Heartwood Hall was beautiful as always, and the bride and groom were absolutely gorgeous! So how could a day like that get any better? With sunset and a lake!
