Ally and Ryan’s Sunrise Engagement Session in Downtown Nashville

Nashville Engagement Photographer

There aren’t many things that would get me up before sunrise and drive to downtown Nashville, but photographing an amazing, joyful, and fun couple is one of them! Ally and Ryan live out of state and so we decided to do their Nashville engagement session the day before their wedding. I had so much fun hanging out with them two days in a row! You can see from these photos that these two are completely in love with each other and have so much fun together. And Ally, of course, looked so stylish in her outfit from BHLDN. I was smiling the entire time, and it was absolutely worth the early wake up call!  I can’t wait to share pictures from their wedding, but for now, here are some favorites from their Nashville engagement session.

Morgan & Chad’s Downtown Nashville Engagement Session

Nashville Engagement Photographer

Morgan and Chad are familiar faces on this blog! I met them over a year ago when they modeled for me for a Christmas Tree Farm Elopement inspiration. They weren’t engaged at the time so you can imagine their friends and family’s surprise when they saw the pictures! These cuties modeled for me again during a Custom Workshop Session at Arrington Vineyard. But this third session together was extra special because this was Morgan and Chad’s official engagement session! 

Chad and Morgan met at Acme Feed & Seed in downtown Nashville and the got engaged right by the river. They wanted to celebrate their favorite spots in Downtown Nashville, so we took pictures in Acme and on the Pedestrian Bridge. It was a cold winter day but these two looked fabulous.

A handful of these images were shot on Portra 400 film, developed and scanned by The Film Lab! I am loving incorporating film into my sessions and weddings. My 2017 couples may see me pulling out a film camera during their wedding celebrations!

While I am mostly booked up for 2017, I have a small number of dates available and would love to talk with you about photographing your love story. I am also starting to book 2018 dates!

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.

Mackenzie & Philip’s Nashville Adventure Engagement Session at Narrows of the Harpeth

Adventure Wedding Photographer in Nashville

I loved photographing this Nashville adventure engagement session! Mackenzie and Philip absolutely love nature and exploring the outdoors, so we knew we had to choose a gorgeous outdoor location for their engagement session. Narrows of the Harpeth was the perfect location! I love when my couples are up for anything–twirling on top of a ledge, climbing to the mouth of a cave, and kissing in the water :) 

I had so much fun adventuring with you, Philip and Mackenzie, and I can’t wait for your unique, nature-inspired wedding next summer!

Paige & Stacy’s Engagement Session | Nashville Wedding Photographer

Nashville Same Sex Wedding Photographer Nashville Engagement

“Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.” — Bruce Lee

Paige and Stacy’s engagement session was soooo dreamy and romantic. I love it when my couples are so clearly in love and comfortable together! I don’t know if you can have two more beautiful and stylish brides–I am so in love with their rose gold engagement rings!

We had so much fun exploring Long Hunter State Park for this Nashville engagement session. There are so many great locations, and there were deer everywhere! If you look closely you might even see some friendly deer in the background of a photo :)

Stacy and Paige, I cannot wait to photograph you October wedding!! I know it’s going to be absolutely lovely.

Enjoy a few of my favorites from this gorgeous engagement session!

Gracie & Joey | Meadow Hill Farm Engagement | Nashville Wedding Photographer

Nashville Wedding Photographer at Meadow Hill Farm,   Amilia Photography

He left her little clues for the entire month leading up to their engagement. The last one lead to their favorite spot in the forest where proposed with a string quartet and then they danced to their favorite song.

Their incredibly sweet proposal story should give you a good indication of what an amazingly cute couple Gracie and Joey are! We had so much fun at their engagement session at Meadow Hill Farm. These two twirled and laughed their way through their session, and looked so stylish while doing it! And the farm was absolutely gorgeous as everything was transitioning from Autumn to Winter.

Gracie and Joey, I can’t wait to photograph your wedding next Fall!
