Yosemite Proposal at Taft Point: Hope + Ryan

I was alone on a cliff a 100 yards away from the overlook that I knew something special was about to happen. I was sweating and nervous and shaking. At any moment I would see Ryan and Hope walk out on the rock. Then he was going to ask Hope to marry him. I can't… Continue reading Yosemite Proposal at Taft Point: Hope + Ryan

Sunset Rock Sunrise Elopement: Ben + Holly

Holly and I have been close friends for years.  We have seen each other through a lot of tough and happy times.  We have hared more than few girls nights and therapy sessions.  To say I'm proud of her and how she has grown is an understatement.  We are very different and scarily similar in… Continue reading Sunset Rock Sunrise Elopement: Ben + Holly

Sunflower Wedding on Chattanooga’s Southside : Abby + Jeramie

I casually walked in the dressing room to check on the bride before the ceremony and suddenly realized I was walking in a very spiritual and special moment. Then I saw the bride, her Mom Ann, and all her bridesmaids huddled in the center of the room. I felt like I was intruding, but I… Continue reading Sunflower Wedding on Chattanooga’s Southside : Abby + Jeramie
