{Jenny & Mike}

Hellooooo!! So, here I sit... exactly one hour and 41 minutes into Christmas day... I wanted so badly to get this gorgeous wedding finished up before the holiday, but as it always seems to go... the universe had other plans. However...I absolutely must, must share a little sneak peak just in time for Christmas.

When I say we had a great time shooting this wedding, that would be the understatement of the year!!! For starters... we were in glorious Jamaica! And #2, Jenny, Mike and their families are such a joy to be around. We had such an amazing time just hanging out with them in the time leading up to and after the wedding. As I look back over this last year, I feel so blessed to have had so many amazing clients... and what a better way to end the year? I certainly can't think of one.

Ok, so without further ado...
Introducing Jenny and Mike...

Merry Christmas All! -jennie

{Laurel & Ben}

Thanksgiving weekend... what a perfect time for a wedding... surrounded by so much family and so many friends during such a time of celebration.
I had such a wonderful time getting to work with Ben and Laurel for their wedding. They got married at the Chapel on the Hill in Oak Ridge and it was all around such a perfect day. I've really been so lucky with weather this year... despite the insane amount of rain, it always seems to clear on up just in time for the important stuff. Saturday was absolutely glorious... no rain, and it definitely wasn't as cold as it could've, should've been.
And to top it all off... Ben and Laurel are both sweet, sweet, sweet... and sooooo in love.
soooo... here we go... showing off some of my favs.

Laurel is sooooo classically beautiful...

it never fails... first look is always always my favorite...

we had some awesome late afternoon sun...

sneaking a peak of all the guests before the wedding...

only thing as good as first look pics are coming down the aisle after "i do" pics.... :)

They had their reception at the L&N, which I could not love anymore for all of its amazing details...

best cake smash of the year.

I'm so lucky to get to share in weddings like this one. thank you Laurel and Ben.
much love, jennie

Super cool dress hangers

Hey-o! So, most of my brides know i am officially OBSESSED with everything Etsy.. so... I've decided to do a blog once a week or so on some of the oh, so fun things you can find on there. For those of you who haven't discovered this gem of a website, its an online marketplace featuring artisans near and far. EVERYTHING is either handmade or vintage.

So, today... its all about the hanger. I usually try to carry a few pretty hangers with me for those dress pics (I hate photographing a gorgeous wedding dress on a plastic hanger!!!)... but either of these are WAY cooler than anything I can even come close to... I love, love, love all things personalized, especially for a wedding.

I think this is one of the most creative things I've seen in a long while...

And they are super reasonably priced. You can find them here.

*I pulled this photo off of a blog called "naturally nina" She wasn't sure of the person who deserves photo credit... so I can't credit it properly!! But just know its not mine. :)

And second... sweet, simple monograms are always in style...

find this one here

Stay tuned for a little sneak peak from my wedding in Jamaica last weekend!

Just wanted to drop a quick line in here to let you know that the website will be down for potentially a few days... but hopefullly, not long at all. I'm in the process of renewing my domain, but don't worry, we'll be up and running very soon! In the meantime, if you have any questions, needs, shoot me an email at or feel free to give me a call!
Thanks and happy holidays!

{Emily & Chris}

Oh yes... I'm back. My much needed hiatus was uber-productive and now I'm ready to blog!! I have soooo much to share over the next few weeks, so come check it all out when you have the chance.
First up... a little sneak peak for one of my favorite, favorite couples on the year... Emily and Chris. You may remember these guys from their oh, so amazing e-session... the one with the fountain. I heart these guys.
Emily has such a great sense of style... so of course, every last detail of the wedding was just perfect... the style of her dress to her perfect birdcage veil fit so well into the style of the Bleak house where the wedding was held. Ok... enough talk. Lets get to some pictures already.

love this... Emily = cool as a cucumber.

see what I mean about her perfect vintage style?

oh, goodness... we had to fight the sun all day... but at least a glaring sun makes for some glorious solar flare...

one of my favorites of Chris and Em with the wedding party...

Thanks you guys soooooo much!!! I had a ball!

Insane October!

I've gotta start by apologizing for my little blogging hiatus... I'm in prioritizing mode, and blogging is always the first to go! October is the most insane month of the year for me... tons of photo sessions to capture all the glorious colors and it's the perfect season for weddings too. I also want to thank every one who is waiting on pics for your patience. I am working day and night to get you finished up... and I'd rather take a few extra days and make them perfect than hurry along and not be totally psyched about what I'm giving you.
I have quite a few weddings to blog, but those will have to wait... which is ok, it just means I'll have something to share when it finally calms down a little about the middle of November... but until then, just wanted to show you all what I've been up to over the last month or so... This doesn't even begin to scratch the surface, but... there have been...
adorable families...

sweet babies...

lovey-dovey couples...

fun e-sessions...

beautiful brides...

super-sweet first looks... (ok, so first one where they BOTH actually squealed out loud... sooooo cute)

and nutty weather (but great for pics!!)

See you soon (I hope)! Jennie
