Nick + Savanna | A Whitestone Inn Elopement

A sweet, family-only ceremony, a cute little chapel, and all the love you could wish for – that’s what Savanna + Nick’s wedding day consisted of. And it’s exactly what they wanted! When Savanna first inquired with me about their Whitestone Inn elopement, I asked her about their love story. She said she and Nick […]

Brittany + Tanner | A Riverbend Farms Wedding

Disney World in 2021 | My Experience

I’m writing this with an overwhelming sense of post-vacation blues (not kidding, it’s a real thing). The blues hit me after any vacation, but they are inexplicably stronger after any trip to Walt Disney World. As my sister once put it, “The first couple years after going to Disney are hard.” We’ve been a few […]

Halli + James | A Long Hunter State Park Wedding

Long Hunter State Park wasn’t Halli + Jamie’s initial location choice for their wedding. They had originally planned to host their wedding at an estate in the Nashville area, but then Covid happened, and everything was up in the air. They finally decided to go through with their wedding & simply change the location. I’m […]

A Lee University Chapel Wedding | Drew + Stepheny

When Drew + Stepheny’s big wedding at the Lee University Chapel turned into a small, intimate gathering, my heart went out to them. No one could have seen COVID coming, but it has taken an incredible hit on brides, grooms, and weddings as an industry. I absolutely hate it for my sweet clients who aren’t […]

COVID-19, a Canceled Semester, and Realizing My GPA Doesn’t Matter

Freshman year, I sat up in the balcony of the Conn Center toward the very end of the spring semester and watched my very first honors chapel. I looked at all the seniors on the stage, picked up a program and started reading about the different awards they had earned. The speaker told the first […]

How to Pick Outfits for Photos

You know the feeling. You booked a photo shoot and you’ve been super excited, but 24 hours before your session begins, you’re standing in front of your closet saying, “I have nothing to wear!” The reality is that plenty of amazing outfits are staring you right in the face, but the fear of picking the […]
