Taylor & Skylar wanted an intimate wedding with family in the Smokies and a hometown after party. They planned a weekend long party at a mountain cabin with an unbelievable view. This military themed wedding was one of the most emotional I’ve documented and focused on the blending of their families and Taylor becoming a Mom to Skylar’s children. Joseph, Skylar’s medic in the military did an amazing job officiating. We ended the day with portraits in the Smoky Mountains National Park and a casual celebration at the cabin. This couple and their families were so kind and welcoming. Thank you for having me Taylor & Skylar!

You may remember Mollie & Maureen’s destination engagement session in Nashville. After spending time together and building a friendship, I knew their wedding day would be special and unique. The theme for the day was Queer Midsummer Night’s Dream. You can see their wedding featured in the upcoming issue of Washingtonian magazine.

Mollie & Maureen planned an incredible day at Glen Echo Park, an abandoned amusement park turned National Park in the Washington, D.C. area with Lula Mae Events. A few of the day’s highlights and fun facts:

Some of my all time favorite first look moments, RBG dissent collar cufflinks, a ceremony officiated by Shumway Marshall who worked with Maureen and the Human Rights Campaign to help bring marriage equality nationwide, the charming neon signs at Glen Echo Park, protea used in the floral arrangements as a nod to South Africa, their first travel destination, carousel rides, a reception in the old bumper car pavilion, drag queen and MC Ba’Naka at the reception (yaaaassssssss) and a walk off (Leah faints), ice cream bar and ice cream sandwich wedding cake and an epic dance party from Jacq Jill. Most of all lots of love and happiness.

I love these brides. Enjoy lots of favorite images from the day below. More incredible wedding pros who made this day possible listed at the end of this post. Congratulations Mollie & Maureen!

There is nothing better than meeting couples that become friends and continuing to document important moments for them. Amanda and Cameron married last Fall in Jonesborough, TN and since then have relocated from Pennsylvania to Tennessee, started new jobs, are undertaking a home renovation and welcomed baby Oliver. It’s been an amazing year for this couple. I loved spending time with them in the Smokies for a maternity session and can’t wait to meet Oliver!

Whitney & Michael are getting married at the Knoxville Museum of Art this Winter. We spent the day in Cades Cove for their engagement session recently and I wanted to share a few favorites. This couple is hilarious and made me laugh the entire time. I know their wedding day is going to be so much fun and I can’t wait to see them again soon! Rainbows, bears in giant trees, gorgeous sunsets, lots of deer- the Smoky Mountains were giving us everything!

Cades Cove is an incredible place for a family or engagement session , contact me for more information-
