I’ve gotten to photograph quite a few wedding proposals before, and these are definitely some of my favorite types of sessions to get to photograph.  It is such a rush knowing that I’m in on a (really big) secret.  I love all of the planning that goes into pulling off the perfect proposal.  Every couple that I’ve talked to says that it goes by in a flash and I love being able to capture that in photographs that they will have forever.

Jerrod’s proposal to Megan was a long time in the making, and even harder to plan because they were coming from Ohio for the proposal!  He had chosen Arrington Vineyards (just south of Nashville, TN) as the location. The two of them toured the winery and tasted wine with my sister and brother in law. When I arrived Jerrod and Megan were still enjoying their wine tasting.  I spotted a family just up the hill from where the proposal was going to happen.  I approached the family and let them in on the secret, and asked if I could sit with them.  This way I was able to grab a few candid photos of them.  When the time was right Jerrod and Megan walked up the hill, Jerrod got down on one knee and Megan said YES! Afterwards we walked around the vineyard and captured some photos of the two of them enjoying the scenery together.  Megan had no idea that Jerrod was going to propose, and he pulled it off perfectly!

Sarah, I cant believe you are actually graduating high school. The transition between your Senior Year and Freshman year of college brings a whirlwind of change and excitement as you embark upon a new season of life. Cherish all these final moments you have with your classmates, never forget your high school friends. You will change, and your friends will change, but there is always a bond there that never waivers. We all get comfortable within our little tribe of friends, and you be saying goodbye to many good ones, but plenty more are waiting out there for you.

College is a time for transformation, you don’t have to know what you want to do with your life when you start college, and you still don’t have to know what you want to do for the rest of your life when you graduate college.

The world is waiting.

Go and get it.

Brayten and Courtnee asked me to shoot their wedding in 2018 in Virgina, and of course I said yes. We shot their Engagement Session the first weekend in March in Big Lagoon State Park and I truly believe they will be forever friends.

I drove to Knoxville early on a Friday morning and met Courtnee at her house, and we drove to Florida with two of her closest friends. We bonded over our love for animals, coffee, talked for hours about how her and Brayten met, The Navy, and so much more. The weekend was filled with relaxing at the beach, exploring the Navy Base, good food, new friends, and seeing the love between Courtnee and Brayten.

As many of you know, I work at a salon, Hunter Paige owned by Parlour 3 during the week. Right now I am completing the assistant program working for an incredible stylist Morgan. I have only been assisting Morgan for three months, but I have already learned so much, and am excited to be able to take clients when I am not assisting her.

When I started working for Morgan she informed me that she was getting married in March, and after she found out I was a photographer she asked me if I would take their engagement session. We had high hopes of going to Burgess Falls close to Cookville, but unfortunately it was raining Sunday so we decided to do an In Home Session and I oculdnt have been more thrilled with how the photos turned out.

There is nothing better than having the opportunity to take photos of old friends. Julianne, Grant and I had so much fun catching up during the session and exploring Long Hunter State Park. We climbed down rocks to get close to the water (something I would have never done) but Grant insisted, and I’m so glad he did because it made for some beautiful photos. I’m so glad you guys chose me to photograph you guys, spend part of the day with, and explore.
