Upon realizing that we would be moving to Knoxville, Tennessee, I quickly moved to know the best venues and locations to shoot engagement pictures. In addition to knowing the best locations, I needed the best representation of Southern couple’s love to capture.
Alivia and Caden were the lucky winners of one of my Engagement Session Giveaways! Living not very far from The White Barn at Cruze Farm, this engagement session represents the essence of engagement sessions — capturing your love story in the way you feel it.
The way I photograph a couple is unique. I don’t believe a photographer can accurately capture the love and dedication a couple has for each other without knowing the reasons the couple fell in love in the first place. That being said, talking to Alivia was the perfect preperation to capturing this dreamy engagement session.
Alivia and I spoke for hours about her love for Tennessee: the best places to live, the beauty the state has to offer, and her beautiful house overlooking The White Barn at Cruze Farm. Alivia told me about her son and her excitement to marry the love of her life. The White Barn at Cruze Farm was the perfect place to capture this couple’s love.
The White Barn at Cruze Farm is about lighting and greenery. This venue is a new establishment with a barn-like structure with large sliding doors. The venue is surrounded by trees and fields–it makes for the perfect southern feel.
As a photographer, it means the world to be able to connect with those I serve and do sessions for. Meeting couples like Alivia and Caden makes being a photographer so meaningful. If you’re interested in getting your story immortalized, reach out to me and lets chat!

A dream! When we got in the car, Cade said “That was so much fun!” and “Celine and Tanner were both so genuine. It was the most fun we had ever had taking pictures.”
Celine made us feel so relaxed and comfortable. We both felt like we had known her for years and it made it easier [to take pictures]. She was so calm and Reassuring. It was the best experience we have ever had getting our pictures done!
We met at the University of Tennessee. We started to hang out a lot. It quickly became an everyday thing for us to be together. Cade was charming and hilarious all at the same time. I could not get enough of being around him! I knew early on how much I loved him because I was practicing writing “Alivia Smith” on my papers when I was bored in class. God handcrafted our relationship and now we are happily engaged, parents, and homeowners.
Vendors and more:
Celine was incredible to work with and I mean that with all of my heart!
Dancing. Cade is the life of the party whenever there is music. He makes it sooooo fun!
