Go Red for Women May 31st | Personal

I had the opportunity a few weeks ago to photograph a fundraising event for the American Heart Association. The Go Red for Women Luncheon offered health screenings, educational sessions, prizes, and a yummy lunch. More than 1,000 Nashville-area women die every year from heart disease! Heart disease kills more women than men every year and 1 in every 2.6 women will be affected by heart disease. However, less than 22 percent of American women view heart disease as their greatest health threat. The luncheon did a great job of not only raising awareness, but also of raising money- The luncheon netted over $300,000 for Go Red for Women. It was an honor to be a part of it. Here are some images from the day to show you just how much fun everyone had.

Fun details:


Health screenings:

Everyone had a great time!

CarryAnn from Fresh by CarryAnn donated all of the center pieces for the event. Aren’t they beautiful?!


Cordia Harrington, CEO of the Tennessee Bun Company, was the chair of the event.

The keynote speaker was Laurie Ann Goldman, CEO of Spanx. If you haven’t tried them yet, go buy some today!

At the end of the event, people were asked for donations and then given a red boa- I love how even the men proudly wore their boas!



Lisa Spelta was my contact for the event, and was the mastermind behind the whole luncheon. What a fabulous lady!

Be sure to check out the AHA website and the Go Red for Women website to find out more.

Heather & Shane, Wedding Sneak Peek! May 29th | Personal

I am a bit behind on our wedding sneak peeks, but that won’t stop me from catching up! The best word I can think of to describe Heather and Shane is “fun”, and everything about their wedding was just that! I can’t wait to share all of their fabulous details from the day, especially the bedazzled couch! Here is one of my favorites:

A Wonderful Weekend! May 28th | Personal

I just returned from a whirlwind weekend, and am completely exhausted, but also completely content! This weekend reminded me why I love what I do so much. We photographed two weddings this weekend that from the outside could not have been more different from each other. It is what they had in common though that makes me never want to do anything else. The love between the bride and groom, their family’s, and their friends are what really made the events spectacular. Much more to come!

Maples Wedding Cakes May 22nd | Personal


A while back I was asked to photograph cakes for Maples Wedding Cake’s new website. I was joined by Mary Alice and Amber of A Delightful Day. Amber designed his website and it is fantastic! You can see more of her work at Sweet Life Designs. On the day of the shoot, Jay Quales, the owner, made up samples for us to try… yum yum! I almost ate too much, it was some of the best cake I have had! If you are looking for very yummy, very tasteful cakes from a true professional, Jay is the man for the job! Here are just a few to give you a taste of his cakes… he wanted something clean and simple to really show off his designs.







And here is the man with the magic, Jay!

Allison & Mark, Engagement Sneak Peek! May 21st | Personal

Once again, another fun engagement session! Originally, we were going to do the engagement session at 5:45am for good lighting (Allison and Mark were going back to New York that evening), but the nice overcast day allowed us to push it back a bit. I think we were all happy about that :) . We wandered and drove around and did some really fun stuff! As usual, I will share more later, but for now here is a lovely one of the two of them at Percy Warner Park!

Jessica’s Bridal Sneak Peek! May 20th | Personal

Peter and I were in Georgia again a week ago, but this time it was for fun! My sister, Jessica, had her family wedding shower, so what better way to celebrate than to photograph her bridal portraits! We had such a good time at my grandparents farm out in Talmo, GA. It is a very special place for our family, so it was the perfect spot for her portraits. I have a ton more to share later, but for now, here is a beautiful and moody one that Peter captured.

Julie and Charlie’s Shining Engagement Shoot- by Jen May 15th | Personal

We held our breath hoping it wouldn’t rain on our Sunday evening engagement shoot in Dunwoody, Georgia, and sure enough, it turned into a beautiful session! Julie and Charlie will be getting married on this Chattahoochee River bank in October. I can’t wait! This particular river bank belongs to Charlie’s mom, who has done a wonderful job landscaping the front and back yard. There are so many great places to hang out and take photos. We had a hard time narrowing it down to just a handful! The great Becca Hayes was my third arm during the session helping direct the light, keep up with equipment, and make us laugh. Here are a few more of my favorites from the day. Aren’t Julie’s eyes stunning?

Emily & Robbie, Engagement Sneak Peek! May 07th | Personal

Once again, we had a beautiful day for engagements, and once again I had a hard time picking just one! I love the fashion feel of this image of Emily and Robbie- isn’t her coat killer?!

But don’t get the wrong idea, they aren’t really THAT serious….

Can’t wait to share the rest!

Jaime & Nathan, Engagement Sneak Peek! May 06th | Personal

Sunday evening was perfect for an engagement session! Jaime and Nathan were up for walking all over downtown, and we found some wonderful places. I had a hard time narrowing down which one to share today, but I finally decided on the following image. I love the moment, it really shows their tender love for each other. I can’t wait to share a few more when the images are complete!

Anna’s Bridal May 03rd | Personal

This coming week is jam packed for us, and it started a few days ago. I am very excited about all of the sessions we have coming up, including Heather & Shane’s wedding today! A good sign of things to come was Laura’s bridal yesterday. We were worried about the storm making us move inside, but instead it made for beautiful lighting and a super fun session at Carnton Plantation! I can’t share Laura’s bridal yet, but I can share Anna’s who was married two weeks ago. Her bridal was at Carnton as well… I never get tired of going there!

Anna is wearing a Melissa Sweet dress that is so beautiful. I love the photographs that Melissa Sweet uses in her ad campaigns, but I still have no idea who photographs them- if you know, tell me! Anna was stunning and looked wonderfully vintage in every way. Here are some of my favorites.
