Chelsea & Jake’s Nashville Elopement

Elopement Photographer in Nashville

Chelsea and Jake live in Baltimore, but have been talking about eloping for a long time. They were actually inspired by Kelly Pickler to elope in Nashville! Chelsea and Jake wanted a beautiful outdoor location near Nashville with overlooks, greenery, and water. I suggested Narrows of the Harpeth, and it turned out to be the perfect location!

We were all a little nervous the day of the elopement because it had been raining allllll day, but right  before we started shooting the clouds parted. We started with a first look on the Pedestrian Bridge and some photos downtown before driving over to Narrows of the Harpeth. Jake and Chelsea’s officiant was awesome and hiked to the top of the overlook so they could have a picturesque ceremony in the midst of the trees. We then had time to take couple photographs, ending at the waterfall. All of a sudden we felt a couple sprinkles of rain…followed by a torrential downpour! We were still 10 minutes from the parking lot but these two were so relaxed about the whole thing. On the drive home there was the most gorgeous double rainbow I have ever seen! I don’t think we could have chosen a more perfect day or location. Congratulations Chelsea and Jake! It was such an honor to witness and photograph your elopement.

I would love to help you plan your perfect elopement. Contact me to get started!

Kim & Matthew’s Cheekwood Wedding

Nashville Wedding Photographer at Cheekwood

Kim and Matthew had the most beautiful, laughter-filled, and meaningful wedding at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens. One of my favorite parts of this wedding day was Matthew and Kim’s Ketubah signing ceremony. In Jewish weddings, the couple actually gets married before their official ceremony! Surrounded by their closest family members, Kim and Matthew read wedding promises and sign an intricate Ketubah document. This was one of the most touching parts of the day, with Kim crying as she spoke her wedding promises to Matthew. After the Ketubah signing, the couple had a beautiful traditional ceremony in front of all of their guests. Another reason I love Jewish weddings is the hora during the reception! It’s seriously so much fun! 

Kim and Matthew, it was an honor to be a part of your wedding day! Thank you for treating me like family and pulling me out on the dance floor. I had so much fun with you and your friends and family! Congratulations on your marriage!

Catherine and Tim’s Joyful Cedarwood Wedding in Nashville

Historic Cedarwood Weddings in Nashville

I’ve gotten to know Catherine and Tim this past year and I know them to be fun, joyful, and totally in love! So, of course their wedding day at Cedarwood was filled with meaningful details and so much laughter. Catherine’s dad had us in stitches with stories of Catherine growing up, and everyone went all out on the dance floor! 

If you’ve followed my work for any amount of time you know that I am all about photographing real moments. There is nothing that makes me as happy as getting to document emotion-filled, funny, and touching moments during a wedding day. These moments are often fleeting, and so it is such a joy for me to get to give these photographs to my couples to keep forever! I also know how important it is to photograph your wedding day details. You have worked so hard to create details that are beautiful and meaningful, from carefully designing and ordering your invitations to creating a display of your grandparents’ wedding photographs. I want to make sure that I also style and document these special details in a beautiful way. I love photographing at Cedarwood because they know how important these details are to couples, and style everything so perfectly!

It was so hard to narrow down images for this blog post! I hope that the pictures I have shared here allow you to enter in to the beautiful details and genuine moments of Catherine and Tim’s Cedarwood wedding. And, if you connect with what you see here, get in touch to talk about having me photograph your celebration!

Fairytale Wedding at Graystone Quarry | Nashville Wedding Photographer

Nashville Wedding Photographer at Graystone QuarryI think the best way to describe Morgan and Chad’s Graystone Quarry wedding is a complete fairytale! This wedding was filled with so many laughter and tears–I often cry at weddings, but I’m pretty sure every single guest teared up as they read their hand-written vows to each other. Morgan could not have looked more beautiful in her Hayley Paige gown, and Graystone Quarry created a stunning, classic backdrop to their elegant wedding. Probably my favorite detail from the day was Morgan’s jumpsuit she wore during the sparkler exit. It was made from her mother’s wedding dress! How amazing is that!

One of the things I loved most about this wedding is how many loving, genuine moments filled the day. Morgan and Chad call each other “sweetie” all the time, and they truly are sweethearts! I hope you feel the love, joy, and laughter that filled Chad and Morgan’s wedding celebration as you look through these photographs.

Downton Abbey Wedding Inspiration at Riverwood Mansion in Nashville

Twenties Inspired Wedding 1920s Wedding Riverwood Mansion

Is anyone as obsessed with Downtown Abbey as I am? I think it’s one of my top 3 favorite TV shows of all time, and that’s saying something! I am so excited to share this Downton Abbey wedding inspiration with you today. Even though Downton Abbey has come to a close, the show’s stories and impeccable style continue to captivate our hearts. This Downton Abbey wedding inspiration at Riverwood Mansion is perfect for any bride who wants to bring the twenties-era fashion of Downton Abbey’s most glamorous weddings into a luxe and classy modern wedding.

Nashville’s Riverwood Mansion was the perfect location for this Downton Abbey wedding inspiration. The mansion dates back to the 1700s and the elegant rooms and great hall brought us right back to British estate.

The centerpiece of the shoot is the bride’s Jenny Packham gown. Packham is a British designer and her beautiful jeweled gown puts a modern spin on the Downton fashions. The bridal look was completed by a beautiful hairpiece. The groom’s white-tie attire would certainly be approved by the Dowager Countess!

Our incredible four-tiered soft white wedding cake, draped with perfect sugar roses, was modeled after Lady Mary’s wedding cake, and was a work of art to behold. The bride and groom sipped on champagne and bourbon, and the elegant table’s luxe linens and candlesticks would fit right in at one of Mr. Carson’s dinners.  

Our real couple Audrey and Patrick shared so many sweet moments during the day, including a touching first look. They also wrote love letters to each other and read them aloud, which resulted in laughs all around!

I hope this post inspires you if you’re planning your own Downton wedding, or if you just want an excuse to watch all the seasons again!

This Nashville styled shoot is featured on Artfully Wed.

Anna & Stephen’s Snowy Engagement Session at Homestead Manor

Homestead Manor Engagement Photographer in the Snow Nashville

This Homestead Manor engagement session is absolute perfection. I love the combination of the greenery with the soft white snow. On the morning of Anna and Stephen’s engagement session, Anna texted me, asking if we could go ahead with the session even though it was snowing. Snow in Nashville is a pretty rare occurrence! Luckily, all three of us live close to Homestead Manor and so we were able to drive there with no problems. I am so glad everything worked out because this snowy engagement session is extra magical and special! 

I loved photographing your engagement session, Anna and Stephen, and I can’t wait to photograph your Homestead Manor wedding!

Andrea & Drew’s Boho Engagement Session | Nashville Wedding Photographer

Boho Wedding Photographer Nashville Engagement Pictures

I knew Andrea and Drew were a magical couple before I even met them. These two have the cutest proposal story! Andrea loves Disney and so when they started dating, Drew bought an annual pass to Disneyland (Andrea says it was to prove his love for her ;). So, of course, they had a magical Disneyland engagement (click here to see the proposal video!). 

Drew and Andrea’s engagement session was so much fun. We were worried about rain but we ended up having a warm, sunny day. Even the wind was cooperating with us! I’m sure you’ll agree that these two have an amazing sense of style–I loved both of Andrea’s dresses so much. It was hard to narrow down my favorites from this boho Nashville Engagement session. I hope you love them! 

Note – I am almost completely booked for 2017, but have a few spots yet for joyful, adventurous couples. I would love to talk with you about photographing your wedding or elopement! I am also booking a select number of 2018 weddings. Contact me to chat about details and to secure your date!

Film Photography | Personal Project | Nashville Wedding Photographer

2016 was a really crazy, busy year. For much of the year, I felt like I was just desperately trying to keep up with everything–school, grad school applications, my thesis, engagement sessions, weddings, and so much more. It was SO good in so many ways, but also exhausting! I finished out my wedding season feeling tired and a little burned out. Self care is so important for every field–it’s emphasized a lot in my social work profession, but creatives don’t talk about self care enough.

I’ve learned how important it is to create personal projects throughout the year that are just for the pure joy of creating and making beautiful and meaningful work. I decided to take on two of these personal projects this December/January. The first was to create a small Christmas tree farm styled elopement. Christmas tree farms are my happy place, so it felt so fun to do a session there. The second was to start learning film photography.

Film photography is making a comeback among wedding photographers. I’ve been wanting to learn to shoot film for a long time, I just haven’t had the time! The last time I shot film was my freshman year of college. I was a member of the Photography Club, which basically just meant I spent hours along in the dark room trying to develop film. I wasn’t very successful but I had fun doing it. So this December I borrowed a film camera from a fellow photographer and got a crash course on shooting medium format film. I had several engagement sessions in January (6 to be specific!) along with the mini styled shoot I planned, so I decided to shoot some film at a handful of my sessions. I am so grateful for my sweet couples who were so patient as I dragged out the massive Pentax 645n and struggled through shooting a roll of film (or loading another roll of film!).

It will probably be quite a while before I’m good enough with film to really incorporate it into my professional work, but I’m going to keep with it this year! So if you’re one of my 2017 couples, you might see me pulling out a film camera at your session or wedding and shooting a roll or two :)

Only a handful of the images I took really turned out, but I know with more practice I will get better! I shot Portra 400 film, rated at 320, on a Pentax 645n. These were developed and scanned by The Find Lab, who did an awesome job. The black and white images were edited by Mastin Ilford Presets.

Bold & Luxe Southwest Inspiration at Graystone Quarry | Nashville Wedding Photographer

Nashville Wedding Photographer at Graystone Quarry Boho Wedding

Graystone Quarry is a new wedding venue south of Nashville…it’s actually just a few minutes away from my house! I absolutely loved partnering with an amazing team of vendors to create this luxe and bold wedding inspiration. Curated details like potted cacti, crystals, and faux fur parallel the outdoor setting of exposed limestone. The color palette transfers from the ceremony space to the gray farm table with ghost chairs where a luxurious flower garland runner makes a bold statement. This boldness is mirrored by the bridal bouquet and choice of a black lace crop top with a gauzy skirt from BHLDN for our bride, as well as the marbled invitation suite by Designs in Paper

This Graystone Quarry wedding inspiration is featured on Ruffled! Here’s what they had to say: Today’s color palette is right at home in the fall season, blending rich fuchsia and burgundy with just the right touch of gold for a look that’s extra cozy and romantic. The talented team of Amilia Photography, Alexandrea Cantrell Weddings, and Enchanted Florist joined creative forces to bring us this bohemian styled shoot at a rock quarry, proving that something beautiful can always come out of any unique location! 

Enjoy some of my favorites from this styled shoot! I hope it inspires you, especially if you’re planning your own Graystone Quarry wedding!
