31Aug10Roddy and Fiona – August 12, 2010

I was photographing Roddy and Fiona in a field of barley overlooking one of the most beautiful valley’s I have seen when I realized I could shoot weddings in Scotland ANY TIME someone wanted me to :) Scotland was amazing and I would be more than happy to go back!

Roddy and I met about 4 years ago while he was in Chattanooga and have been internet friends ever since. I was pretty excited when he called me earlier this year to see if I was interested in shooting his wedding in Scotland. What a great opportunity. My answer was of course I will photograph your wedding… it would be my honor. So long story short after a bunch of planning and some talking on skype I was on an overnight flight from Atlanta to London.

The wedding was on a Thursday and my day started with Roddy and his guys for breakfast. Then I hung out with Fiona for a while before heading to the church. It was a beautiful old church in Dingwall. Then the reception was at an old victorian spa in Strathpeffer. Once the band got going I dont think there was anyone sitting down the rest of the night. I am also pretty sure that nobody had any energy left after dancing like they did the whole night! All in all it was a great wedding and awesome adventure! Thanks for giving me the oppurtunity Roddy and Fiona! I wish you all the best!

31Jul10Adam and Emily – July 25, 2010

The day started at the Hunter shortly before Adam and Emily signed their kettubah (Jewish marriage contract). It was a fairly quick and intimate ceremony on the second floor terrace. Then they greeted their guests and prepared themselves for the wedding ceremony all while a Dor L’Dor (a fantastic Klezmer band) played in the background.

The reception was full of traditional Jewish dancing and fun. What a great day and a really fun couple. Make sure to admire that hand crafted chuppah that Emily’s dad designed and built. It was pretty spectacular. Thanks again for letting me be part of your wedding day guys!

20Jun10Kenny and Katherine – May 29, 2010

I knew they would have a great wedding day after our engagement session back in November. Started at one of my very favorite salons, Hair a Go Go. Then the girls went to the church to finish their preparations. I caught up with Kenny at the church where in typical guy fashion was ready in minutes :) They had a very personal ceremony with Kenny’s grandfather officiating. Then it was off to Chester Frost Park Pavilion for the reception.

Thanks for letting me be part of your wedding guys. It was my honor.

16May10John and Kelly – May 1, 2010

Another great Chattanooga wedding at the beautiful Hunter Museum! Kelly and John we determined to have fun and make a great day even if it looked as if the skies were going to unleash their fury at any moment. If I am not mistaken it only rained a few drops all day. Just enough to qualify them for the legended good luck it is supposed to bring :)

Our day started at Kelly’s aunt and uncle’s house for a luncheon. It was beautiful out there and I could tell it was going to be a good day. Then to Hair a Go Go for hair and makeup. Kristen did a great job as usual. Then it was off to The Hunter Museum of Art for the rest of the day. The place looked great and everything went off without a hitch. Kelly had some of my favorite wedding vendors there too :) Congratulations guys and thanks for letting me be part.

3May10Ryan and Erin – April 24, 2010

I was a little relieved when Ryan called me in the morning to tell me that they had rented a tent to have the wedding under since it was raining. What I had not planned on was that their venue was literally in the clouds on Lookout Mountain. There is a first for everything.

They had the ceremony in the backyard of their home in Lookout Mountain, TN. Which is across from the original venue… Point Park. The reception was at St John’s downtown Chattanooga. I had not been to St John’s before and I have to say it lived up to ALL of the good things I have heard about it over the years.

Congratulations guys. I am glad I could be there with you to celebrate!
