Ashley and Brett's wedding at Opryland Hotel on Saturday was a busy day to say the very least... We (my wonderful assistant/second shooter Jennifer and I) arrived early afternoon to capture precious moments with mom and daughter, bride and bridesmaids and all the wonderful details that come with a wedding day.... All of which are very important to every bride!
Ashley's bridal suite was perfect for every single moment captured! Everywhere I turned there were photo opts! Ashley's colors were exquisite... Her wedding gown fit her style and complimented Ashley to pure perfection! We got to the groom a little later than planned... He was dressed and ready to marry his Ashley. He had to endure us for a bit before he could meet up with his bride and he was absolutely fantastic! He was wearing a black tux with a black bow tie... He and his groomsmen were very distinguished and handsome!
The ceremony was held in the Delta pavillion which is part of the hotels conservatory. The flowers and plant life was spectacular in this iconic landmark here in our very own Nashville. The ceremony took place at 5:00... The perfect time for the conservatory part of the hotel. The reception was to follow at the Gaylord Springs Golf Links. It was the perfect setting for Ashley and Brett, their family and their guests!
It was an unforgettable day for this amazing bride and groom.... Thank you Ashley, Brett and Mrs. Sharon for giving me the honor to be your professional wedding photographer on one of the most important days of your life!
Happy Honeymooning!!!

Oh my, where to begin with this AMAZING story! This very handsome husband and father to be has become very dear to my heart! James is my main Crossfit Coach... He came into my life and changed it over four years ago... He has completely changed my fitness regimen and my overall health!
This Crossfit guy has found the love of his life and the two of them are starting a perfect family together... We had planned a maternity photo shoot with Emily not knowing she was going to be proposed to that very evening.... James was very romantic and secretive in his planning, which went exactly as he had planned! If I'm thinking correctly, only one other person knew about his plan.... and what an amazing plan it was for his future wife and that sweet little baby Liam James! Emily didn't suspect a thing, it was a complete surprise and success!!!
The captures tell the complete story of his romantic proposal to his beautiful Emily... What an amazing evening and event it was....




Just plain GORGEOUSNESS!


You are so beautiful, lady! One of my faves!











That's a very happy young woman... This just fills my heart!







 

Congrats you three!!!
You both were a joy to work with!
~We did a complete studio shoot as well, but you will have to ask James and Emily to see those, they tell another story~

Stepping out of the comfort box, in my opinion, makes us all stronger and more educated in everything we do! I do it in my business life, my personal life and in my worldly life! Now blogging is completely out of my box, but I need and have to do it sometimes for my business! So, I was going through several photo shoots I haven't blogged about and came to this gorgeous shot of this beautiful family I did in the spring. Now, why is this particular shot out of the comfort box?? First of all, it's midday, which is really a "no no" in professional photography lingo. Especially for Masters in photography, and I've studied under plenty of Masters in my day! Most teachers say, find shade! No, not me!!! This family endured midday full sun, heat, and bugs (in a field)! The children weren't the most cooperative children, but I truly love kids! They probably think I'm the crazy photographer lady! Ha!
But anyway, in my professional opinion, this shot is a complete success and wall hanger in all technical terms! The lighting is perfect, the setting is perfect, their expressions are very natural and you can see their eyes, which is MAJOR in professional photography!
Stepping out of the box is always fantastic for me...

I have recently become a grandmother and I have to say, there's no other feeling like it in the world. I thought having a grandchild was going to be a wonderful feeling but I honestly did not think it was gonna be as grand as it is!
To have the complete honor and opportunity to photograph other grandmothers with their grandchildren is honestly complete bliss for me!


Oh my my!!!

This is one of the wonderful reasons I photograph weddings... Of course, my main reason is the passion for my work and the unity of marriage, but to give you another wonderful reason is photographing family! Here is a shot of three generations of fathers and sons!
I absolutely love photographing these families and creating priceless memories for their future generations....


Always remember important family photos when planning your wedding!

What is heaven for me in this world we live in today?   My passion is to capture family memories! This was one of the best Mother's Day weekends ever... Here are just a few photos from this past weekend.... I photographed families with new babies, families I know personally by being their wedding photographer... Or an old family friend! I met brand new families from the area that I knew of by name but have not had the pleasure of meeting in person.... and families just stopping in because they read my sign out front and wanted to see what was offered! I am proud to say I booked all of my wonderful neighbors that stopped in! :)
I am such a lucky photographer!!!!!!!!!!!!

As we all should know, an image has many stories and memories of our family and friends.... This is what I do for my clients folks... My families and I create ever lasting memories and I acturally freeze time, if only for just a moment.... OH MY MY!!! An image speaks a thousand words....

What is the purest blessing God gives us? It's the blessing of new life and innocence. The true love of a marriage. To have a sweet little heavenly baby for two people that love and admire each other through each and every day is what marriage is built from. I have literally done it. I've been married to the love of my life, father to our children for over thirty-two years and I wouldn't change one minute!

I was looking for a certain image when I ran across this beautiful child and thought, she is fixing to be a big sister! OMGoodness, my heart is so very full for this amazing family right now... Congrats to you all!!!
