Nashville Engagement Photography: Meagan & Nick

I got connected with Meagan through the lovely Kim, and had a great time grabbing coffee with her and Nick to chat about their wedding and engagement session. When they told me they both loved going hiking and spending time outdoors, I knew they would be up for a little adventuring during their session. Cheers to Meagan for wading in a creek with a dress on and laying in the grass for me!;)Love it when couples are willing to try new things. Enjoy!

Can’t wait for their wedding this fall! Happy Monday!

Nashville Wedding: Julia & Troy

“In two words… we fit.”

When Troy gave a speech at their reception (in two different languages no less), that was the line that stuck out to me most. And it is so true for this couple! Julia lights up when Troy is around (even my second shooter commented on how happy she seemed when she was with him!). They got married in June at Traveller’s Rest Plantation and had an intimate ceremony and reception with their closest friends and family. Troy, Julia and Troy’s family travelled all the way from New Zealand for this Nashville destination wedding! Enjoy-

Such a lovely day! Thanks Julia and Troy for letting us be part of your day!

Nashville Engagement: Julia & Troy

These two are married, and I am so happy to share some of their engagement photos with you! We did Julia and Troy’s engagement shoot a week before their wedding (so it is never too late for engagement photos!) at BiCentennial park. Considering they came all the way from New Zealand, we had to include a few shots with the globe statue as well.;)Enjoy!

Laura Hines - So great! Thank you so much for these! You captured all the emotions and it makes me want to go back and relive it all again! Thank you again! :)

Nashville Newborn: Ruth

Baby Ruth was born on her parent’s anniversary…how perfect is that? Casey and I were roommates when we first moved to Nashville a few years ago, and we became friends with Will and his roommates shortly after. Fast forward six years and Casey married Will, I married one of Will’s roommates, and we both have babies a few months apart! So fun how friendships grow.  I was so excited to get to photograph little Ruth, and I have to say, she is one gorgeous baby. Enjoy!
