20Aug11Jeremy and Chelsea – Engagement Session

Jeremy was a groomsmen in John and Kelly’s wedding that I photographed last year. So I was honored that they called about wedding photography when they got engaged. It is always nice to work with friends and relatives of previous clients.

We shot their engagement session in Nashville last weekend. Started at MTSU in Floyd Stadium since they both love football and she went to school there. Then we met back up a little later at the Parthenon in Centennial Park. After that we walked around downtown on Broad Street and the walking bridge. I really do like Nashville a lot… thanks for having me up guys!

20Jul11Ken and Bethany – June 25, 2011

Beautiful setting. Beautiful people. Beautiful day!

Ken and Bethany got married at her family’s farm just south of Chattanooga in Flintstone, GA. It is an amazing farm with a working mill, several homes, hidden gardens, an organic fruits and vegetable garden and lots and lots of trees. The wedding ceremony was held in the entryway of the main home and the reception was under a tent in the front of the home.

Thanks for having me there guys!

22Jun11Geof and Paige – May 21, 2011

It was an honor and a privilege to photography my brother’s wedding! I could use this space to make some embarrassing comments about him since I was not given the mic during the reception but I may just pass in favor of a few things I have grown to really appreciate about him. Geof knows I have a weakness for dates so he always reminds me of important dates (relatives birthdays etc.). He checks in every so often just to make sure things are still going ok. He always has an open door if I am in town (even if it is open to his tiny little one room apartment). And he always gets to tickled to introduce me as his “little” brother (I am only a foot and a half taller and 100lbs bigger than him). I don’t know Paige all that well but what I do know is that she makes Geof really happy and that cant be bad :)

Thanks for letting me be the one to document this day for you guys. I wish you all the best!

14May11Bill and Jill – May 7, 2011

Road trip to Racine, WI. I never thought I would say that :) I had a lot of fun though and I would totally do it again.

Jill and the girls started their morning at Profiles Salon where they all got their hair done. Then we went to the church for makeup and final prep. The fun really got rolling when I made the entire bridal party go rock climbing at the marina downtown. They were all troopers and I think we made it out without any injuries… speak now or forever hold your peace.

The church was packed out for these two. Lots of tears and emotion in that building as they said their vows :) The party rolled on at the Marriott until the wee hours of the morning. Some celebrations spilled out into the parking lot but I will not speak of that. All I will say is… gas cans Bill? Really? Truly guys it was such a pleasure to be there with you and I am so glad you trusted me to record it for you!

16Jan11Avalene – December 27, 2010

This is my sweet little niece Avalene. Seemed like she had grown so much since the last time I saw her and it was only in August! She had just begun walking and now she is running around like it was nothing.

Last year Willem ignored her almost completely but we were pretty sure that Willem and her were going to be best buds this Christmas after he showed some interested right off the bat. Alas Avalene grew weary of his hugs and was scared of him most of the trip. That’s alright Avalene who wants hugs all the time anyway ;) I think she was scared of me by association too cause I could barely get a snuggle.
