I have had the honor of photographing and telling hundreds of love stories as a wedding photographer in Chattanooga.  Please take a look around for ideas and inspiration for telling yours.

Max Patch Engagement Photos: Adam + Frances

Max Patch Engagement Photos might be my favorite thing in the world.  Max Patch is a mountain bald, seemingly in the middle of nowhere, on the North Carolina – Tennessee state line.  You have to travel 30 min down a gravel road, believe you are lost, and then you will arrive at the parking lot.  The next step of the adventure is a heart pumping hike up the hill to find the most breathtaking views in the southeast.

Max Patch is truly one of my favorite places on planet earth.  Just outside of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge it boasts amazing views of the Great Smokey Mountains.

Finding this place was difficult, but 100% worth it.  Frances and Adam are the cutest couple and I was so thankful they were the couple I was meeting here.  They have so much chemistry and clearly love to laugh together.  Their wedding will be an adventure too as it is on the beach in Florida.  I can’t even explain how excited I am about their wedding!  From the mountains to the beach this couple is a photographer’s dream come true!

Caty & Simon got married at her grandmother's private estate inside the Sandestin resort in Florida.  They fell in love chatting by the water so it only made since they say their vows here too.


Sandestin Resort

It's not every wedding that starts with a luxury car in a venue styled like a tuscan villa and ends with karaoke and fireworks!  This wedding was EPIC!
