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!

11Oct10Brett and Alexa – September 25, 2010

Alexa and Brett actually got married in Scotland about a week after I came home from there earlier this fall. Crazy enough our paths could have even crossed while I was there :) Alas we didnt and I had to wait til their stateside reception to met them.

I started at Alexa’s parent’s house with Brett and Alexa getting ready together. Yes that is the first time that has happen for me. It was really cool having the bride and groom together to get ready. She helped him with his bow tie and he helped with her bow… sweet really. The actual reception was at the Lookout Mountain Golf and Country Club. Good food, good band, great night. I am glad I could help you guys remember the evening! Congratulations again!

13Sep10Chris and Ashley – August 28, 2010

I have been lucky enough to shoot weddings all over this year! This is my first wedding of my own in Nashville and it was awesome. Great couple, big beautiful church, awesome reception location and Nashville is just a really cool town!

My day started with Ashley at the Green Pea Salon which was a converted gas station… I knew I was in a cool place when they were selling bacon chocolate bars! We did some pictures all around downtown Nashville including Printer’s Alley, The Hermitage Hotel and the Capitol Building. The wedding was at Downtown Presbyterian Church and the reception was at The Cannery Ballroom. All in all a wedding day I will not soon forget. Thanks for letting me be part!
