Erin Morrison Photography bio picture
  • I am a modern, lifestyle Knoxville wedding photographer in Knoxville, TN. I also photograph in the surrounding Knoxville areas, such as Maryville, Alcoa, and Sevierville, TN.

    I started my photography journey in 2011 with the full support of my wonderful husband. In 2013, I became an Associate Photographer for the amazing Joe and Kathleen of JoPhoto. It has been an honor to shoot under their company, and I certainly couldn’t ask for better bosses, mentors, and friends.

    Through my work at Erin Morrison Photography and JoPhoto, I have had the opportunity to photograph at many places in Knoxville and East Tennessee, such as Dara's Garden, The Reserve at Bluebird Hill, The Stables and The Pavilion at Hunter Valley, Pleasant Hill Vineyards, The Emporium, The Standard, and Spence Cabin in the Smokey Mountain National Park.

    I sincerely thank all of my clients who have allowed me to be a part of their lives. I hope you will allow me to be part of yours. Please, feel free to contact me! Photo Courtesy of JoPhoto

The Basler Family: Maryville Family Photographer

I met Andy a couple of months ago after he joined my husband’s CrossFit box, CrossFit Pistol Creek in Maryville, Tennessee.  I hadn’t, until this photography session, had the opportunity to meet his lovely wife, and beautiful children.

Alice contacted me a couple of weeks ago and wanted to get her yearly photos of her family.  I love parents that document the years of the family. It was very apparent that photos were important to her; inside their home Andy and Alice had a “black and white wall” on their staircase.   It was a wall covered with black and white photos of everything from her parents’ wedding to when her babies were babies:-) It. Was. Awesome.  I loved the merge of the old with the new, the past with the present.

Our photography session took place in the front yard of their home. It was a beautiful, early Fall day and I don’t think we could have asked for better weather! Thank you to Alice, Andy, Jack, and Violet for allowing me to be a part of your memories! #muchlove

Stephanie, David, & Family: Knoxville Engagement Photographer

I met Stephanie at one of my favorite places: the gym.  She is an instructor in Body Attack at some of the National Fitness Centers in Knoxville. And I love her class. She has so much energy that it’s hard not be to totally motivated to give it all you’ve got! She’s the type of instructor who can talk through the whole class, shout out all the instructions, laugh, and sing and not be the least bit winded. Jealous. (I’m the one who is about to have a heart attack on the floor!)

A couple weeks ago, she told me that she is getting married and asked for me to do her wedding photography. Yes please! She also wanted to do some engagement photography with her new beau and all of their children. Of course! I’ve never done a joint engagement/family photography session before and it sounded like a treat:-)

I met Stephanie, David, RJ, Haley, and Madelyn at the Ijams Nature Center in Knoxville. We snagged a couple of photos along a small picnic area before we traveled to the neat barn nearby.  We finished off the session at the oh-so popular spots of Mead’s Quarry where we played with the rocks and snagged a couple of crickets.

Congratulations to Stephanie and David as they start a new journey together! I can’t wait to photograph your wedding next month! #muchlove

Hayes Turned 2: Knoxville Family Photographer

I can’t believe that this little one is two! It feels like just a yesterday I was taking his 1 year photos at the UT Arboretum. This time, I met the family near their home as they had just added a new addition to their family, baby Rian!

And let me tell you what a year will do! Little Hayes was moving and running like crazy.  We ran around in the grass, and played on a swing, scooted down the sidewalk, and played in the cool creek water. He’s like a little man now! And his hair! I have been obsessed with his little curls from day one! And now, he has this thick, golden hair that just suits him. It’s perfect.

Congratulations to this wonderful, growing family! Thank you for letting me be a part of your milestones! #muchlove

Brittany & Andy: Knoxville Engagement Photographer

Sand. Sun. Ocean. Brother and his fiancé. Yep, the perfect combination for an engagement session.

Andy is my bother. Twin brother, actually. I was born 51 minutes after him, and just 6 minutes before midnight. We almost had separate birthdays! (I love telling that story).  He and I (and our younger sister) have stayed pretty close over the years even though we all live in different states. We enjoy group texts with each other; some of them leave me in tears from laughing so hard.

I was pleasantly surprised when he asked me to do his engagement photos with his fiancé Brittany.  We had planned a family vacation in North Carolina to celebrate our mom’s birthday, and he thought that would be a great time to do them! Yes, please! I mean, I don’t get many opportunities in Knoxville to photograph cool peeps with the ocean as a backdrop!

We decided to do sunrise engagement photos since the sun rose up from the ocean in the mornings. It was too pretty to pass up. The sky was a dark shade of blue when we woke at 6am, as the sun was hiding behind some pretty awesome clouds. Luckily for us, it peeked out a couple of times in order for us to get a couple of sun flare photos.

A couple of people have asked me, “Was it weird taking pics of your brother with his fiancé? I mean, them kissing and all?” Ha! Nope. Actually, it was nice to see my twin bro with a person who makes him very happy. We welcome Brittany into the crazy fold of our family, and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for them.

Congratulations to you both. #loveyousomuch

Cat Kline: Knoxville Catholic High School

Knoxville Senior Photographer

Holy. Gorgeous.

Cat is making her way to college tomorrow, and I am so excited to post her senior photos as a perfect way to send her off!

Cat’s mother and I work together and have been talking about her senior photography…for years, actually. When she graduated this summer from Knoxville Catholic High School, we finally got down to the business of setting up a date and a time:-)

We visited Sequoyah Hills on a sunny, beautiful Thursday evening. The sun was just skimming the tops of the trees as we took photos down one of the many beautiful streets in the neighborhood.  We followed that up with a quick trip to some of the stone work along Cherokee Boulevard, and finished up by the Tennessee River.

I was so happy to be her Senior Photographer! She is seriously stunning! Congrats to you Cat and have a wonderfully fun, silly, adventurous time at college!
