WEDDING + ELOPEMENT PORTFOLIO

You've said yes to the love of your life! Now it's time to capture your big day in pictures that last you a lifetime. The idea of choosing your photographer should not stress you out. Rather, you need to have fun with the process. After all, it's your day I am there to make sure you don't forget it. If you are considering either keeping your engagement a secret, or telling the whole world , there is one thing in common – you need to hire a professional photographer. Your special day and capturing the memories are just too important.

REASONS FOR A WEDDING

Have you always wanted to have a wedding? If so, then have one! There is no good or bad reason for wanting to walk down the aisle to your awaiting spouse, dance with your father, and party into the wee hours of the morning. Or wanting to get embarrassing photos of your friends on the dance floor! I mean, who doesnʼt love a good blackmail? There are tons of reason why couples over the centuries choose to celebrate their marriage with a wedding celebration. Here are a few reasons to go with a wedding:

1. You love celebrating with friends!

2. You want to dance with your father.

3. Youʼve always wanted your mother to help you get into your wedding dress.

4. Your family has supported and encouraged your relationship, and itʼs fitting for them to be there as you are married.

5. Your “white dress” moment may be missed, and you may regret not taking the opportunity later.

REASONS FOR ELOPING

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 a 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. Elopement is a personal choice for the bride and groom.

EAST TENNESSEE BEAUTY

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.

Before Your Ceremony

A great way to approach your wedding is to divide it into three pieces. The first is what happens before you walk down the aisle into the arms of your beloved.  You get me all to yourself. As you relax and surrounded by your bridal party I will capture the little details that make the day stand out. These include small details on your outfits, your shoes, and any other special details you have.

After a few photos of you, I bid you farewell to relax and enjoy the last few minutes with your party. I’ll capture your future spouse as they prepare for the day. I capture cufflinks or handkerchief and any special family mementos for their personal pictures.

The individual sessions are amazing before the ceremony begins. There is one more option for pictures before your ceremony. Have you thought about a first look session? This special type of session is a private moment between the two of you before everyone sees you. It is the perfect time to relax, center yourselves and let the natural beauty of your day surround you. Spend some time in the arms of your future spouse as I fade into the background.

During Your Ceremony

As a couple, you are the focus of your ceremony. Those pairs of eyes are on you. During your ceremony, I make myself scarce. I capture the little details without intruding on the moment.  Before your ceremony please let me know if you have any special moments planned. This way I am in the perfect position to capture these unique elements.

Let the Festivities Begin

The ceremony is only one part of your day. Enjoy the festivities as the run their natural course. As your guests make their way to the reception. I capture the cake and the moments you don’t want to forget such as the dances and toasts, and of course, the all-important exit.

Are you looking for someone who understands this is your day? Let’s chat about having your wedding captured in lasting images. I look forward to capturing your wedding. The day goes by in a flash, let me make sure your pictures transport you in the blink of an eye.
