Emily’s ‘Chihuly’ Bridal Portrait Session ~ Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, Nashville, TN

January 10, 2011

Just wanted to share a few shots from Emily’s awesome bridal session that we shot back in October at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens.  (Yes, October.  That’s the only thing that stinks about bridal sessions–I can’t show them off until after the wedding!!)

Luckily the Chihuly exhibit was going on during the same time so we got to take advantage of the beautiful blown glass art that was set up throughout the gardens.  Gorgeous!

Check out the blog for Emily’s wedding to Mr. Matt B. here.

Morgan’s Bridal Portrait Session at Cedarwood ~ Nashville Wedding Photography

July 19, 2010

Now that the wedding has past, I can post Morgan’s bridal portraits!  We shot her session at Cedarwood in Nashville, the same location as the wedding.  Since I’m so behind on blogging, I’ll get right to the photos and add some comments along the way.


This is the perfect photographic description of Morgan's life! Air National Guard member, runner, bride and native Tennessean!

I LOVE this old truck at Cedarwood. Such a great "prop!"

Such a cute gal!

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.

Paula’s Bridal Portrait session ~ Cheekwood Botanical Gardens ~ Nashville, TN

November 23, 2009

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.

Rachelle’s Bridal Portraits ~ Riverwood Mansion ~ Nashville, TN

June 19, 2009

Rachelle claimed she didn’t want anything “too pretty.” But with that 1,000 watt smile, who couldn’t capture pretty? Especially at Riverwood Mansion.

Her mom, LeeAnn, and 2 younger sisters drove up from Austin to help her get ready–I couldn’t help but think how they reminded me of a sweet version of the Kardashians! What a fun family!

Here are a few shots from our session. I’ll be blogging the GORGEOUS wedding later!

And one of the fam. (Don’t kill me Mrs. Dekker!)

Sarah M’s Bridal Portrait – Benton Chapel, Nashville, TN

December 23, 2008

Miss Sarah’s wedding gown was late coming in, so we actually shot her bridal portrait the same day as her wedding.  We just started early!  These were taken inside and just outside on the grounds of Benton Chapel on Vanderbilt’s campus.  Such a pretty lady!
