Jessica & Matt ~ 11.7.09

November 24, 2009

Lucky for Jessica & Matt (and me!), they chose the warmest day of fall to promise forever. They were married at Good Springs Free Will Baptist Church in Pleasant View, TN. We took advantage of the bright blue skies and autumn colored leaves by shooting some photos in the nearby field. Jessica’s warm color choices of chocolate, orange, and yellow accented the entire reception. My favorite moment was when Jessica’s sister cried as she gave her sis a goodbye hug. *sniff sniff* I may have shed a tear or two myself!

Check out Jessica’s bridal portrait session here.

Jessica’s Bridal Portrait Session ~ 10.18.09

November 24, 2009

Beautiful location, beautiful bride! Jessica chose Twin Oaks Farm near Springfield, TN for her bridal portrait session. There were so many gorgeous locations to shoot! I’m so excited to finally show these photos–we had to wait until after the wedding so Matt’s prying eyes wouldn’t see.

BIG thanks to Travis & Cindy Claud, owners of the farm, who were gracious enough to keep the reception barn decorated for us from their previous event. Contact them at 615-604-5687 for rental information.

Now that she’s a Mrs., I can post some shots from Paula’s bridal portrait session. After a nasty week of rain, we got a beautiful Sunday afternoon to shoot at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens. It’s such a beautiful location. I could’ve spent all day there with miss Paula! Check out her wedding to Ken here.

Julie & Seth ~ Nashville, TN wedding ~ 10.17.09

November 10, 2009

Julie & Seth are just the cutest little couple, and they had a fun wedding party that kept me on my toes all night! They were married at Monroe Street United Methodist Church in the Germantown area of Nashville, with the reception at the Sheraton Music City Hotel. Although it was a chilly day, we took all of the group and family photos outside in front of the gorgeous arches of the church before heading down the street with the wedding party to a colorful wall mural of the Nashville skyline. Good times continued at the reception as guests took over the dance floor to reenact the knife fight scene to MJ’s “Beat It.” Hilarious!

Flowers: Flower Express
DJ: Nashville Party Authority
Cake: Sweet ‘N Sassy Bakery
Gown: Jim Hjelm at Faccio Bridal
Alterations: Joy Fashion Studio
Planner: Jill Chaney & Paula Finley **Julie highly recommends Jill!!**


The Painters on the farm ~ Family photo session ~ New Market, TN

November 9, 2009

I got together with the Painters again for some fall fun on the farm. Little Eli and Trey love John Deere tractors so we made that our focal point for the session. They had a great time climbing all over it and afterwards, it was hayride time!
