Love Stories

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.

The Barn at Faith Farms: Chris + Taylor

The Barn at Faith Farms was the perfect place for Taylor and Chris’s wedding.  After their “First Look” they embraced and the Taylor motioned for someone to hand her an item.  She gently opened her hand to show Chris a small token.  As soon as Chris saw it tears started to fall.  He took the item and showed it to his family, his brother immediately collapsed into tears.  Literally everyone was tearing up and I had no idea what he was holding but I found myself so moved by emotion I started to cry too.

Taylor, being the sweet and thoughtful person she is, had put a photo in a locket for Chris’s jacket. The photo was of Chris’s beloved and deceased Papaw.  He was obviously very loved and missed on this very special day.  It was a beautiful moment that the entire family shared.

I loved the connection between Taylor and Chris, but I also loved the very special bond she shared with her parents.  Her Mom and her Dad clearly love her fiercely and that love is definitely returned.  They were clearly all so close and it was beautiful to watch the emotion running through all of them.  The family also had a great sense of humor that I enjoyed all day.

The Barn and Faith Farms is one of my new favorite venues.  It looks like it fell out of the Magnolia magazine.  I hope I am able to come back very soon!

Chris & Taylor, thank you so much for choosing me to be your wedding photographer.  I have very much enjoyed spending time with both of you and your families.  I wish you all the happiness in the world!

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!
