It was a cool, windy day but the warmth between this couple and their family was enough to keep anyone cozy.  I just couldn’t get over how welcoming and warm Josh’s parent’s and Randi’s Mom were.  I totally understand now why both Josh and and Randi are such sweet, friendly people.  They are full of […]

I love a Tennessee River Place Wedding!  This venue is so different from any other place in town.  The views of the river and the gorge are amazing and the Spanish style house gives me all the european vibes I’ve been dreaming about!  The patio has, hands down, the best lighting in all of Chattanooga.  […]

Building a campfire is a key life skill, especially if you ask Kristiana.  She believes it to be so important she was adamant the man she married had to know how to build one.

I love it when brides pull in gems from their families past into their wedding.  The idea of honoring who came before them on a day they honor their own love is so romantic.  Laura wore her grandmother’s necklace and rings during her ceremony.  She also tied her dear grandfather’s ring around her bouquet.  I […]

Megan and Skylar might be one the the cutest couples I’ve ever photographed.  No matter what is going on I can tell they find security in each other.  The lean into each other.  That tells me that that marriage will be a long-lasting and admirable one for the rest of their lives. The team at […]

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 […]

One thing you need to know about me is I’m a Chattanooga photographer who loves animals, especially dogs and cats.  There is something about my relationship with animals that speaks to my soul.  They are silly and fun, but somehow wise and comforting.  It is really difficult for me to put into words how I […]
