Jonathon and Grace's wedding

Jonathon and Grace were married on a beautiful September day in Loudon.

Grace was a stunning bride, and her mother was with her to help with the finishing touches.

The groomsmen had fun monkeying around prior to the wedding.

Jonathon at the very moment he first saw his bride in her dress.

The perfect opportunity to steal a few rays of sunshine to illuminate the face of this lovely bride.

These girls were all about shoes.

The wedding party

Both sides of the family

Family members and friends sent the couple off to the reception with bubbles.

Congratulations Jonathon and Grace! We enjoyed shooting your wedding! Thank you for everything!

Jessica's pre-baby session

As you can tell, Jessica is quite proud to be having a boy! We're so happy for her too!

Little Mason is bound to be a cutie with a gorgeous mom like Jessica and a handsome dad like Travis, who was the inspiration for this session.

Travis is serving our country abroad. I am proud to know such a dedicated couple. We had the honor of shooting their wedding, just before Travis was deployed the first time. Now, almost four years later, he is on his second deployment while his wife is expecting their first child. What a giving couple!

Congratulations to Travis and Jessica! Mason is going to be one very loved little boy! You guys truly deserve every happiness!

Jason and Cynthia's pre-baby session

Jason and Cynthia were the very first couple to hire us to shoot their wedding, when we started the business four years ago. They are expecting their baby boy, Blake, any day.

It was so nice to see that their love for each other has only strengthened over the years. They are so excited to be parents, and we are excited for them!

Jason and Cynthia -- thank you for all of your support. We look forward to meeting Blake!

Nate's newborn session

Nate smiles more than any baby I have ever met, which made my job very easy during his newborn session.

His smile is so contagious!

J.J. is such a great dad!

J.J., Nate and Polly are an adorable family!

Even when he sleeps he smiles! He is such a sweet guy!

J.J. and Polly -- I enjoyed getting to spend time with your family!

Nissa and Joe's pre-baby session

As you can see, Nissa is pretty excited about her "Lil' Peanut" being on her way. This onesie is so adorable, especially considering the baby's nickname that she used prior to knowing her gender.

Her husband, Joe, seems to be the proud father, as well. With all the love that they already have for each other and the baby, they are going to make such great parents!

Congratulations to one of the sweetest couples in the world. I wish you the best with your bundle of joy who will soon be on her way!

Welcome Emerson!

When Sam married Krissy last June, he gained two great kids, Brennan and Drew, as part of his family. It was perfectly easy to see how much they immediately loved each other, and none of them knew the boys would soon have a sister, sweet Emerson!

They are so adorable together!

There's nothing like a newborn baby, and Emerson has already brought a lot of joy to her family and their friends. Ron and I are so glad to have you as friends Sam and Krissy! Congratulations to you and the boys on your beautiful new addition! We love her already!

Wes and Stacey's Engagement

Wes and Stacey asked us to go to Volunteer Landing, where they were engaged a year ago.

They were very affectionate and loving toward each other.

A trip to Market Square gave the couple (of UT seniors) a chance to show that they bleed orange.

Of course, we had to show off the ring!

I love this after-the-kiss moment. It was so sweet!

Wes and Stacey -- thanks for hiring us to shoot your engagement session! We hope your wedding is beautiful, and we wish you luck in your new careers following graduation!

The first look

If you recognize the bride and groom, these photos are from Jason and Jodi's wedding, which we photographed last summer. We have had several couples ask us the reason they should do a first look session prior to the wedding ceremony. Of course, it's not something all couples would want to do.
But, we feel like it offers the opportunity to capture some priceless expressions on both the bride and groom's faces ... something that is more difficult as they walk down the aisle, especially when there are movement constraints. When, you are walking down the aisle or standing in front of the congregation, so many things are going through your mind, least of all, the pictures.
First look sessions also allow us to shoot photos of the bride and groom together prior to the wedding. Now, I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. Whatever you decide ... to look or not ... have fun!
