Elopement Portfolio


If you are keeping your engagement a secret and want to elope, you will need one thing...


...you need to hire a professional photographer. Your special day and capturing the memories are just too important.

Elopement Portfolio Erin Morrison Photography

If you are considering an elopement, make sure to hire a photographer who is familiar with The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. While based in Knoxville, I love to shoot at many popular locations inside the boundaries of this beautiful National Park, such as Cades Cove, Elkmont, and the Foothills Parkway. Please contact me at any time and let's plan your next big adventure!



There's something incredibly romantic about an elopement.



Whether you keep it a secret or tell only a close few, eloping narrows the focus of the day to the bride and groom. While this is certainly the goal of any wedding, sometimes the details takeover, and the stress increases. The end result? The true meaning of the day gets buried under both. Eloping brings peace and calmness to the ceremony. Nowhere is there a more peaceful place to elope than the Great Smoky Mountains. Or, choose another East Tennessee location such as Whitestone Inn, Sampson's Hollow, or Gallaher Bend.


There are many reasons for choosing elopement. Here are just a few:



1. Not everyone likes being the center of attention.


2. Elopement is less expensive and less stressful.


3. It's a great way to avoid sticky awkward guest list invites.


4. The process is faster than a traditional wedding.


5. Eloping costs a fraction of the traditional wedding, yet it doesn't mean running off to Vegas.



Some people may choose that route, while others opt for a romantic elopement in the mountains of East Tennessee or other National Park. Elopement is a personal choice for the bride and groom, and if anyone is interested in eloping they should check out these best places to elope.

What makes my style unique?


Knoxville is a popular area for weddings. Not only is the area amazing, but the Smokies are beckoning you to celebrate nature's beauty. What makes me unique among area photographers? Awesome question! I focus on you and the vibe of the day. I like to have fun and capture the raw beauty that is your wedding day celebration. My goal at the end of the night is to make sure you are happy. We enjoy each other's company while I work to capture your day, your way.

“Oh Erin, the funniest & sweetest photographer you could ever have.



When we were looking for a photographer for our wedding, we wanted someone who we could connect and be ourselves with. Erin blew us away! She was personable and flexible and that is all we could ask for in the midst of the craziness going on in the world. She is amazing at what she does and ensures to capture the authenticity of your relationship. We love our engagement and wedding pictures, memories we cannot forget. We will continue to use Erin for years to come. Highly recommend!”

I may be partial to the beauty of East Tennessee since I live here but there is something truly magical about the Great Smoky Mountains National Park



And it is a beautiful place for either a wedding or an elopement. I mean, there's a reason the Smokies is the most visited park in the National Park system. The beauty of the mountains, the lush plant life of the forest, and the wildlife that call the park home make this a great spot to say "I do!" As a photographer, capturing your forever day ceremony with the mountains as your backdrop is a joy for me. It allows me to share in your private celebration of love and to do what I love.
