Mama ich hab dich soooooo lieb. Nutzt doch den Tag heute mal um euren Müttern zu sagen, wie toll sie sind. Es muss nicht Muttertag sein um ihr ein kleines liebevolles Kompliment zu machen. Ein kleines Wort oder eine kleine Geste können ihr schon den Tag versüßen. Also knuddelt sie, was das Zeug hält.
I love the depth created by having the couple outstretch their hands together in their traditional wedding attire.
Something as simple as that added significant visual interest to the photo. 🙌
Swipe to see all three.➡️
Whenever I'm not tucked away in my editing hole there's a good chance I'm driving all over the place running errands...like today 🏃♀️✌️ Buuuut ya know me I'm already coming up with cabin fever and dying to get out and explore 😂🤷♀️ Who's with meeeee?? 🙋♀️🙌 Also how friggin cute are these two?? 😭😍 Loved shooting with them during the #abidephotoretreat in Arizona! ❤️
“It hurts my head to think of how many things had to happen for our paths to intersect. Of all those numberless little fortunes that led me to you. A broken alarm clock, a delayed train, a sudden downpour, and there we were, You and I, sharing coffee, our whole lives ahead of us.” – Beau Taplin
Don’t let Randy fool you— these flowers were from the styled shoot. He’s romantic, sure, but he cheated on this one a bit.
In all fairness, it is all about the presentation anyway so he’s still swoon worthy.💕🥰 And, the quote is cute and all, but I’m not sure how many delayed trains were needed for us to match on Bumble. #justbeingreal Thanks, @bumble.
Today I witnessed two teenagers making a Tik Tok video in the cereal aisle at Walmart and now I officially feel 90 years old 🙃 happy Monday folks, congrats you got through it!!!

These two were all love and laughter on this beautiful day💍
I wanted this to be a normal post. But let me just tell you.
I have got to talk about this couple. Probably going to be in my top favorites for awhile😻 We has SO much fun.
IM TALKING Pancakes. Flour... Need I say more!! Okay so who wants to see? Leave me a comment describing my photography style in three words and I’ll post them and there is a bonus one that will make you wanna put a seriously funny meme on it.
You know what’s cool about working with REAL couples? I couldn’t replicate the same pictures in every session even if I tried. 💁🏼♀️
Every single dynamic and relationship is different, which is why we do a lot of talking and playing around in sessions🌸I want to get a feel for YOU so your gallery splatters your personalities and UNIQUE relationship across every frame 🌿
Some of us are more serious and some of us are goofy 99% of the time. And either personality and everything in between is beautiful 🖤 What do you want your photos to say about you?

Back from an epic weekend in the Mountains 🏔🙌🏻 THANKFUL for my kickass couples that are always down to adventure ✨
Let’s talk 2020 goals!! My biggest goal for this year is to book at least one adventurous elopement for 2020 or 2021! Being from Chattanooga, I have such a love for the outdoors. I love hiking, the mountains, being on the water, all of it! Shooting an intimate elopement in an epic location is such a dream, and I really believe it’s going to happen this year! So if you’re planning an elopement, LETS CHAT! ✨🤘🏼 I would love to go on an adventure with you & your hunnny. If you could Elope anywhere (whether you’re married or not) where would it be? 🤩♥️
✨ ENGAGEMENT SESSION TIP:
I see you, trying out different poses in the mirror. Trying to find the most flattering angle & flexing so you know how to look your best in front of the camera. Practicing that Tyra Banks smize. Reading the article on “top 10 poses you MUST do at your engagement session” as if the writer knows you and your personality.
Trash all of that 🗑
If I wanted my couples to look like models during their engagement session, I would have hired models.
Throw out ANY tips you’ve heard in the past on how to pose, what to do with your face, or how to contort your neck in order to get rid of your “double chin.”
Here’s the deal: you’re hiring me to document this season of your life. Are you a model? Thought so. I’m not going to pose you like you’re showing off the new Urban Outfitters line.
I’m going to give your prompts to RESPOND to. How do I choose the prompts for you? I actually get to know you before I stick a camera in your face. I ask you questions, learn about your values, listen to your stories, and figure out what makes you laugh & what kind of personality you have. I do this because, when all is said & done, I want you to say something like, “DANG. Those photos are so US.” And that’s all that matters. Yes, I will make sure you look good by guiding you on what to wear, and I won’t give you unflattering prompts. But my goal is to photograph the real you.
None of this awkward modeling garbage that makes you want to be someone other than you.
Ok rant over. HAPPY FRIDAY! ✨
