Nestled behind Ijams nature center is one of the most beautiful quarries I’ve ever seen. In the summer people can go paddle boarding and explore the gorgeous area around. There are docks to jump off of and tons of beautiful moss covering the cliffside.
Just a couple of minutes past the nature center is a little parking lot. In January, on a very cold morning, we met outside and these two followed me and a fellow photographer out to capture this exciting moment.

Melton Hill is one of my favorite places to take engagement session pictures and bridal sessions in Knoxville. Not only does it have these rolling hills that are filled with lush green grass and gorgeous river views, it also has so much space for that features so many different locations in just one session.
When I met up with Hannah Beth and Adam, they seriously were so cute together. They were laughing and snuggly and just so easy to work with.

As I got to know their story, it was so fun being able to see them shine as they talked about each other.
They talked about all the fun memories they have together and the way that they have gone from the most extroverted fun college kids to those who love to stay at home and cuddle.

Summer weddings are SO beautiful, but can be extremely warm and can get your guests sweating in that heat!
It’s your big day, and a beautiful, outdoor summer wedding may be just what you envisioned, however, the logistics of making the day perfect can be a little tricky. Planning a wedding in general is time-consuming, stressful, expensive, and overwhelming; but it is also going to be one of the best days of your life because you get to be with your person forever, two families are coming together, and you get to spend time with your favorite people who care about you both so much.
There are a lot of little things brides forget to plan, when figuring out all the kinks for this monumental and super exciting day, so that’s where I come in! A summer wedding is totally attainable and can be an epic day, but let’s make sure we take care of EVERYTHING and don’t leave our guests dying in the heat, while still making sure your day is freaking PERFECT.
I came up with a few tips and things I’ve learned as a photographer whose been to tons of weddings and seen almost everything to make things a little easier on your dream day.

“Like Celine said, I feel like I have learned SO MUCH, by going through the engagement process myself, and have been where you are, feeling so overwhelmed and I wanted to try and clear up any confusion or help out in any way I can. So I wrote a letter, to all the girls out there who are feeling like I did…
Congratulations! You are in love and about to marry the person who makes you whole. What an exciting time! Planning “the big day” can be overwhelming. Hosting your closest friends and family for one of the biggest celebrations of your life. There is so much thought that goes into practically every detail of a wedding. Details that include; venue, attire, meal options, color schemes, photographer/videographer, officiant, decorations, invitations, party favors, etc.

Bohemian beach bridals in Los Angeles at El Matador State Beach. Not only were we able to dive deeper into this couple’s special bond but these shoots are seriously something from a magazine. SO dreamy, and so stunning with the crystal clear ocean behind them.

I love looking through my grandparent’s wedding pictures, seeing them dressed up and with their families. Even in my parents day, we only have a few photos to remember everyone in their early nineties galore- but my parents actually hired a videographer back then, and every few years we watch Steve Young (the football player’s) dad officiate the ring ceremony, see my mom and dad smash cake into each others faces, and all my young and hip aunts and uncles dance on the dance floor. We even have footage of everyone giving them advice. They’ve been married for 25 years this week, and it is still something that they treasure watching. It is incredible seeing these two young kids, skinny and unaware of the 5 kids they’re going to have, making promises to each other. Also, I love seeing my moms wedding dress. Poofy sleeves and white lace. Perfection.
