Adventure Engagement Session in Cades Cove

Adventure Engagement Photos in Cades Cove

Ahh, Cades Cove. The iconic Smoky Mountain location is truly in a league of its own. Cades Cove attracts tourists and locals year-round to explore its blooming wildflowers, mountain views, log houses, and many other restored eighteenth and nineteenth century structures. Being a Smoky Mountain Licensed Photographer, Cades Cove is definitely a frequent place for adventure engagement photos. And this session was like no other.

I met Liz and Drew in Knoxville, and we had miles upon miles to talk about their engagement and marriage. I think we became besties with all our chit-chat. As soon as we made it to Cades Cove Loop, we immediately hit up some of my favorite spots. Multiple rivers and creeks cut through the rugged terrain of the Smokies. Lucky for us, Abrams Creek presents itself right at the start of the loop after showing off its beauty as Abrams Falls. Following our time on the water, we drove to the secluded side road that the Primitive Baptist Church provides before hitting up a highlight of the trip. Any adventure engagement session needs to include the grand views of The Great Smoky Mountains! Clingmans Dome is the peak mountain view and is visible in Cades Cove. It’s really a stunning view!

The Smokies region is my home. And I love the beauty and natural surroundings that draw thousands of visitors every year, such as the Townsend Y. Investing in professional photography for your adventure engagement photo is a wise decision. Please view my Smokies Portfolio, and contact me to schedule your session! I look forward to meeting you!

Rainy Spring Wedding at Dara’s Garden

Rainy Day Wedding at Dara's Garden

Rainy Spring Wedding at Dara’s Garden

It was a chilly day at this rainy spring wedding at Dara’s Garden, but you couldn’t tell by the warm smiles and happy tears from Rachel and Corey. Their love for each other was absolutely palpable at their melton hill engagement session, and I expected nothing less from them on their wedding day. But can you seriously blame them for their excitement or enthusiasm?! They were getting married to the loves of their lives, and we were so happy to catch all the special moments.

Special Moments

There were so many special moments on Rachel and Corey’s wedding at Dara’s Garden. We started the day off with a tender letter from Corey to his bride and followed it up with a serenade on the guitar. Tears fell from both of them as they saw each other for the first time at stairs landing at Dara’s Garden. Moving along to couple photos, these two couldn’t keep their smiles to themselves! They walked along the stone covered paths together, danced together, and embraced. We even got a great air pump from Corey!

Now, let’s not forget the first man in Rachel’s life: her father. Having a daughter of my own, I know how special a moment it can be between a father and his little girl. He was beaming when he saw her for the first time in her wedding dress; his little girl had grown up to become a lovely young woman. And in just a short time, he would walk her down the aisle to awaiting husband.

And can we hear it for a good ole traditional flower exit at the ceremony? We love sparkler exits, lavender exits, and bubble exits. But, a rose petal exit after the first kiss is seriously epic. And Corey and Rachel’s laughter can be heard through the photos!

A big, huge congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs! We were honored to be a part of your wedding day at Dara’s Garden and wish you all the absolute best! If you are interested in a photographer who captures the honest and real moments on your special day, then I am your girl. Every wedding is just as important as the next, and I take pride when couples choose me to document one of the most important days of their life. I work hard to capture all of the candid moments that paint the story of your day, from the first look between a bride and her father to simple kisses on the dance floor.
