I am always so amazed at how much can happen in a single year! 2018 was truly an incredible year both professionally and personally. It had some wonderful highs, some really tough lows. But as I was creating this Best of 2019 post I was filled with gratitude. I am so genuinely thankful for all the couples and wonderful humans I got to photograph. Something that really marked 2018 for me was friendship. I was lucky to get to travel with friends, photograph dear friends, and develop genuine friendships with my clients!
In 2018 I photographed at some incredible venues around the world including Cedarwood, Scarritt Bennett, Cheekwood, the Nashville Public Library, The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers, Riverwood Mansion, Red Space Events, and many family homes. I traveled and photographed around the world, including London, Switzerland, Barcelona and Montserrat in Spain, Ireland, New York City, Cleveland, Virginia, Washington DC, Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado, and Nashville! Along with weddings, I grew the boudoir side of my business, which I will continue to expand and grow with some big dreams this year! (See my boudoir website here).
Personally, this was a big year for me. I finished my Masters in Social Work and passed the social work licensing exam. I left Cleveland, OH, and amazing place which had become my home the past couple years, and moved back to Nashville. Then I surprised myself by accepting a job as a therapist in Knoxville, TN! I fulfilled a long time dream of going to Disney World and Harry Potter world for the first time. Another highlight was a week-long solo road trip across Ireland, which felt magical and empowering. I read lots of books, spent more time adventuring and playing, and re-discovered my love of baking. I am so excited for everything 2019 will hold. It’s going to be an important and fun year!
I truly want to say a huge thank you to all of the couples who trusted me to photograph their wedding day. I’m sure every photographer thinks that their couples are the best, but mine really are. I loved laughing with you, celebrating with you, and crying with you. I hope that looking at these photographs inspires you and makes you smile.

Not only will I continue photographing weddings in Nashville and Knoxville, but I will also be traveling around the country and abroad again.
