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.

Fort Oglethorpe Church Wedding: Jennifer & Zach

Jennifer & Zach are two beautiful people, inside and out.  They love they have for each other, their animals, and their family exudes out of them.  Their wedding day was full of sweet special moments.  Michelle, Jennifer’s sister, had a embroidered handkerchief with words from their dear grandfather.  Michelle kept this a secret and when she gave it to Jennifer is a beautiful and emotional moment.  The speeches at the reception were heart warming and everyone in the family was so proud and happy for this couple.  The dance between Dad and daughter was a song I had never heard but brought me and my second shooter to tears.

My favorite moment of the day, of course, involved the couple’s furry family.  We were able to bring their beloved doggos Boo, Dobby, and Zoe in for some portraits.  Zoe reminds me so much of my Max, even though they looked nothing alike.  It was one of the most personally emotional moments I’ve ever experienced at a wedding.  I 100% get it when it comes to the bond this couple feel for their dogs.  I felt it.

Jennifer & Zach, thank you so much for choosing me to capture this incredible day.  It was emotional, sweet, romantic, and I could feel your two old souls entwining completely and permanently.  I wish you both 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!
