Bridal portraits are some of my favorite images to capture during any wedding day. They are different every single time, they show a unique personality every single time, and I get to play around with lighting + use my creativity. On this particular day, I was happy to be inside the AC to take these before going back out into the pits of hell 🙃
This was also the first day I met @rachelsmithphoto & @kacilroscoephotography who are now also two of my absolute best friends here in Clarksville. Best day ever. 💛 AND of course @andreaperchinskemua (the best make up artist everrrr) did her make up & guess what? She’s one of my BFF’s too. 😘 Where was @brynleynicolephotography during this shindig??

Fun Fact: Brides used to believe that tucking a lump of sugar into the wedding gown would bring sweetness throughout the wedding... Do you believe that??

Today someone ask me wha try favorite part of my job was and I literally was a deer in headlights. I couldn’t think of one thing because there are just so many! From the amazing couples to capturing the best days of their lives I mean what’s there not to love?! ♥️
I mean, could they BE any cuter?! 💒✨ 2020 goals: more brides like @itsme_livyp who send the funniest meme dm’s on a weekly basis 9 months and counting after their wedding. (insert friends theme song here) #elizakennardphotography
“And taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven and said a blessing over them. Then he broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd. And they all ate and were satisfied. And what was left over was picked up, twelve baskets of broken pieces.”
I work with so many different types of couples and different types of personalities. But, one thing that I see in common is a strong element of trust and love for their partner. It’s something special to witness in the eye of the beholder. #morningwild#morningwildphotography
Can someone please bring me @muddysbakeshop cupcake or seven?! Haha. Simply the best! I’ll never get over this magically sweet proposal. 💛💛

Strawberry Alley 🖤 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These two got engaged her a couple of months ago. Incorporating the street sign (although he proposed inside the restaurant) felt important ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve known August for three years now and have never seen her so full of life 🥰 We cannot wait to see what this new chapter holds for them 🖤⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also, IG crops really, really hate us 🥺😭

Eileen got ready with her daughters and Grace was the one to help her into her dress - a moment that almost felt frozen in time 😍 #thehatches
A painter has a blank canvas. A florist has loose blooms. A calligrapher has an empty page. As for us? We have empty boxes, totes, and bags. Our art is how we fill them up and finish them off.
I have HUGE news… can you guess what it is? If you guessed I'm announcing a spring mini session day tonight, you got it!!! Check out my stories later this evening and let me know what you think!! Sign-ups and all the info coming to my stories (and for those that have been patiently waiting an inbox near you!!) this week!
Just a little midweek romance to get you through til the weekend... 🖤

These two wrapped up our 2019 weddings and we were loving the winter theme. Excited for 2020 and working with new and old clients. Also, if you’ve contacted me in the last few weeks I’ll be contacting you this week. I enjoyed the holidays and family time but it’s back to work!
Normally my first image that I post to Instagram from a wedding day is either a stunning bridal portrait or a photograph of the bride and groom. But this image is so powerful, and it reminds me why this is my job.
Cassidy's brother is serving in our nation's military, and he was unable to come home for his sister's wedding. They were able to FaceTime him so that he could watch Cassidy dance with her new husband David, and there wasn't a dry eye in the entire room. #JaynaBieryPhotography

*photo taken in NC* BUT, update on our life travels: We made it! Believe it or not, Birmingham is better than I thought. Beautiful rolling hills, nearby lakes and rivers, tons of shopping (sry Jacob) and so far amazing restaurants! Jacob starts his new job in two weeks and if anyone needs a wedding photographer in BIRMINGHAM and MEMPHIS, I’m your gal!!! 😍🥰 Currently getting settled in and buying things to make our place a home. Looking forward to new adventures - we couldn’t be happier!

Finally got to posting a sneak from this AMAZING wedding! Brooke and Davis, you couldn’t have picked a better day with even better friends and family around to celebrate you two! Just look at em.
The weekend is near, folks! My challenge for you: grab a cozy blanket and run away to the nearest mountaintop with your sweetie. 😊
I couldn’t help but share another fav pic from Sam and Shane’s day after session.

🌎Where should @johntginn and I go on our 2020 trip?🌍 We’ve thrown around the idea of Greece, Italy, or a big Napa/SF trip (we haven’t been back to San Francisco since we moved home 💔) Let us hear YOUR thoughts! #kellyginnphotography
