This was an incredibly special day for Ajay and Kate. Ajay planned a surprise proposal along the water and insanely beautiful trail in the Smoky Mountains. The natural surroundings early in the morning, the rushing water, the significant stones she had engraved for them to toss in the river where they were engaged, the time they got to spend with each other hiking to a waterfall- everything was perfect. I am so honored she invited me to come along to document their important day!

I couldn’t possibly express how much I loved this morning. I cried looking over their photos during my editing session, so many of the expressions on their faces were too much- so moving and  sweet. The one of Kate falling into Ajay’s arms with disbelief is probably my favorite. It was also my first shoot in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I am really excited to announce that I now have an official NPS CUA permit to shoot weddings and sessions within the park and am looking forward to some upcoming weddings and elopements this summer. Contact me if you are interested in exploring the mountains with me. I really enjoyed hiking in for this shoot, feel so lucky to live close to the beautiful GSMNP and will love spending even more time there.

First dance song: “God Bless the Broken Road” by Rascal Flatts

This is my last wedding and blog post of 2016. It’s been an incredible year and this was a perfect way to end the year- with a huge party. Ryan & Britta invited me to photograph their rehearsal dinner at Cooper’s Hawk Winery and wedding at Fisherman’s Inn in Elburn, IL just outside of Chicago. After getting to know their VIPs at dinner, I was ready to shoot and see Britta in her gorgeous blush and gold Galia Lahav wedding dress. The very Games of Thrones head piece killed me- beautiful bride! Ryan Pullano is a DJ and I knew their dance floor would be amazing. Thanks to Second Photographer Michelle Catalano-Reilly with work also featured on the blog. She captured some great shots of Ryan before their first look.

Some of the many special parts of the wedding day aside from their amazing sense of fashion were Britta’s bouquet with an image of her Mom and a memory table honoring her, Britta’s first looks with Ryan and her Dad, swizzle stick pre-ceremony cocktails, the vows they exchanged with good friend Chris acting as their officiant, individual cakes at each table including a birthday cake for a guest, personal speeches, gorgeous tablescapes, Britta’s killer reception jumpsuit, late night snacks, a great band and insane dance party with DJ Akib, ending with a sparkler exit. Thank you so much for inviting me into your lives to photograph this day, congratulations Ryan & Britta!

Kayla & Amanda wanted to have a relaxed wedding at home with their closest friends, family and co-workers with a backyard wedding, BBQ, lawn games and a porch party. Sign me up. We got to know each other during their Knoxville summer engagement session with their sweet dogs who were also heavily photographed on their wedding day- ridiculously cute. Kayla & Amanda met at the UT College of Veterinary Medicine and it was nice to be around so many other dog freaks.

We had some time to create portraits around their home and in Louisville, TN- beautiful blue skies and fall leaves. We all cried at the ceremony, it was absolutely perfect. Kayla looked beautiful in a unique blue and white wedding dress and Amanda had on a bow tie (sucker for those). Magpies made the cakes and all the guests went home with homemade cookies. Their family was very cool and hospitable and I am so grateful I got to be a part of their Tennessee wedding day! Here are some favorite images from the day-
