I am currently in my 9th year of photography. I started as an Associate Photographer for another wedding photography company but now shoot as Erin Morrison Photography. I have shot over 250+ weddings and elopements, and hundreds more of engagement and family sessions.
That depends on a lot of factors! Always contact me for more information!
I do nearly all of my sessions (engagement/maternity/family, etc.) in the hours leading up to sunset on Mondays through Fridays. I am generally unavailable to shoot before 4:30pm most weekdays. But please, always email me or contact me for availability!
I do NOT photograph any photography sessions other than Weddings on Saturdays or Sundays (unless otherwise specified).
I do NOT photograph weddings or events on Memorial Day Weekend, 4th of July Weekend, Labor Day Weekend, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
For weddings, I generally decline travel that is more than 3 hours away from Knoxville. For other sessions, I decline travel more than 2 hours away. Please note, travel fees apply for all sessions outside of Knox County.
YES. I have a Commercial Use Authorization (permit) to photograph in The Great Smoky Mountains. Sessions pertaining to engagement, maternity, family, or other general photography sessions inside the Smokies require a photographer with a permit.
If you are interested in elopement or wedding photography, please view this blog post with pertinent information.
Sessions in the Smokies start at $600.
The most requested session that I receive is large family sessions at cabins in Sevierville, Townsend, Wears Valley, and Pigeon Forge. I do NOT travel to cabins to photograph these types of sessions. If you are interested in locations inside The Great Smoky Mountains, please contact me!
I do love a good black and white photo, but you will receive more color photos (95%) than black and white (5%).
I shoot with two Canon R6s. I love my 50mm lens and my 135mm lens, but also use a 35mm, 85mm, and 100mm macro lenses as well.
The only shot list that we require (or that we would really, really like) is for formal family portrait time at weddings.
For weddings we sure do! If you request one for elopements, just let us know!
I have used the same preset for editing since 2017. It is called KLN3 from Meridian Presets. If you will notice, my editing style is desaturated in the greens and the yellows. This is intentional. This preset is what makes Erin Morrison Photography’s images unique versus other photographers’ images.
Sure do! I currently use a preset from Meridian Presets. It is applied to all my photos.
For weddings, sneak peeks are returned about 14 days from the date of the wedding.
I do not provide sneak peeks for any other session.
Wedding and elopement photographs are sent to you within 4-6 weeks. Engagement and family sessions are generally returned in 2-4 weeks.
Of course! The more the better! I just ask that you tag my business in any photos, and to please not crop or edit any photos. That includes putting a filter on photos on Instagram.
-For weddings, I require a 25% non-refundable retainer for all weddings with payments over the course of the booking period. The remaining balance due two months prior to your wedding date.
-For elopements, I require a $500 retainer, with the remaining balance two weeks before the ceremony.
-For families, engagement, or elopement sessions, I require a half non-retainer.
Something unique, but that fits your personality and makes you feel comfortable. The best thing I suggest is to color coordinate without “matching.” Avoid logos, distracting patterns, and bright neon colors around your face and neck. Layers and anything flowy is always a plus in my book! If you need some inspiration, you can view my Pinterest Board for ideas!
All of your high-resolution digital images will be hosted in an online gallery (with one-year cloud storage), available for you to share and download. A USB is also provided for wedding photographs if selected in the proposal.
This can vary due to circumstances. However, we produce 75-100 images per hour of coverage for weddings; 50-75 images per hour of coverage for elopements; 100+ for family sessions.
I am so glad that you asked! Well, beyond the fact that you can use so many quotes from the movie to apply in real life, I really enjoyed watching the movie for the first time with my dad, sister, and brother in the movie theatre. We laughed and laughed, and we even had to pull the car over on the way back from the theatre. It’s one of the best memories that I have with my family!
