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.

Sleepyhead Coffee Engagement Session: Patricia + Thomas

I love clients with plenty of giggles!  Patricia and Thomas were full of laughter and sweetness.  They make my job almost too easy.  I can just click the button and watch them be absolutely adorable.  I was so excited that Sleepyhead Coffee agreed to let us shoot in the shop after hours (they don’t allow photography during business hours as not to disturb their patrons).  They were such gracious hosts and they have the cutest decor!  Also, their coffee is DIVINE!  The perfect engagement session for coffee lovers like Patricia and Thomas!  We couldn’t end the session without going to the Choo Choo.  This was a special place for Patricia and her late grandfather so we had to include it in their session.

I simply cannot wait for their wedding in Knoxville this year!  It’s going to be beautiful and full of genuine laughs!

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!
