Knoxville Engagement Photos at Botanical Gardens
Zika. Yes, I said it: Zika. It is because of Zika that I have the pleasure of photographing Jacqueline + Rich’s wedding at RT Lodge in just a few short weeks. After Rich proposed to Jacqueline, they started planning their wedding. A Caribbean wedding was out of the question due to the Zika concerns. So, Jacqueline started requesting estimates from everywhere. Literally, from New York to Florida, from California to Ireland.
After an unsuccessful trip to look at venues in Florida, Jacqueline started thinking about what was really important to her. It was important was not only in the aesthetic but also in the atmosphere of their wedding weekend. Jacqueline’s actual Google search was: “whimsical, magical, woodland, midsummer night’s dream wedding retreat.” Millions of incredible images to popped up on her feed! One image of a wooded RT Lodge wedding ceremony caught her eye. And that was all she wrote!
It took very little time for Jacqueline + Rich to book a visit to Maryville. Tucked in the backwoods of this tiny town was the future site of their wedding. They continually joke that they should “hire” fireflies to buzz around us at the wedding, but there is no need as there are already thousands of fireflies floating through the woods.
Knoxville Engagement Photography
I’m not sure what Google search lead Jacqueline + Rich to me for their Knoxville engagement photography. I would like to think that it was “super awesome wedding photographer in Knoxville!” No matter! I am so happy for whatever words were typed used. And that brings me to their engagement photography at the Knoxville Botanical Gardens. We wanted to incorporate some of that beautifully wooded feel into their engagement photos. A slightly overcast day was filled with a whole lot of class, sophistication, and laughter. I mean, don’t they just compliment each other nicely?
Thank you to Jacqueline + Rich for coming with me for an evening of engagement photos. I am highly looking forward to you firefly wedding at RT Lodge.
