Laura’s Bridal Jul 29th | Personal

It threatened to storm during our entire session at Carnton Plantation, but the rain held off just long enough for us! I never worry too much about storms because they bring beautiful light and a beautiful sky. Here are a few of my favorites!

I love Laura’s laugh!




Laura’s gorgeous veil really had a mind of its own!

Peter caught this one… I love it!

The anniversary outing! Jul 25th | Personal

First of all, thank you to everyone for your well wish’s on our anniversary! It really made my day to read them all :) . This year we forwent the traditional 3 year anniversary gift of leather, and instead just decided to spend the day together. We work so much, it is rare for us to have a day off just to hang out, this was super special for us. Here’s a little summary of our day…

First off we had a wonderful breakfast at Pucketts in Franklin. It was my first time there and I can’t wait to go back. The atmosphere was so cozy, and I loved staring at all the store items on the wall while we ate. The best part was that we used a gift certificate that we received from our realtor when we bought our house 3 years ago. Yes, it takes us a while to use gift certificates…

After we wandered around Franklin for a while, we decided to go see The Dark Knight. It really was a great movie, but I think it was a little overhyped for us. It was never boring, the cinematography was great, the acting was really good, but I thought the story was just missing some of the mystery the first one had. However, Heath Ledger’s performance was amazing, he was so creepy it was hard for me to look at him! But even with how disturbing he was the Joker did make me chuckle several times.

After the movie, we went to check on the status of the iPhone for Peter, and of course there was none there. We then checked into the Courtyard by Marriott on West End (a gift from my dad!) and just relaxed until it was time for dinner. The hotel customer service was wonderful, the rooms clean, and the Marriott beds are always comfortable.

We chose the Marriott because Valentino’s is right next door, and that is where we had our anniversary dinner. My food was delicious, especially the Cesar Salad and my Smoked Salmon Pasta. Peter wasn’t as thrilled with his seafood pasta, but he gobbled up mine when I was done! Even with how small the restaurant was, it was still very loud and not quite as romantic as I was hoping for. The service was excellent though and we were completely stuffed and content by the time we left!

Even though we were still in Nashville it felt like a mini vacation for us. It was a perfect day. I can’t think of anything I would rather do than spend time with my husband relaxing and having fun! As for pictures of the day, we left our camera’s at home- not very photographer of us is it?!

Our Anniversary! Jul 23rd | Personal

I can’t believe that it was three years ago today that Peter and I said “I do”. In some ways it feels like forever ago, that Peter has always been my best friend. In other ways time has flown by and it seems like yesterday that he called and asked me on our first date. What is certain though is that I love him more and more every day.

I love this image that was done by White Box Weddings for us a few months ago. Mel is married to Peter’s best friend, Tim. We laugh at how they both married wedding photographers! Mel works with Sara in North Carolina and I just love their fun images. You can see more of us by looking at their blog here. And if you want to see some of our wedding photographs, click here.

Peter and I have some fun things planned for today, and the first is breakfast at Pucketts…. mmmm….

Franklin Bridal Ball Jul 23rd | Personal

This summer has been our busiest ever. Not only are we photographing more weddings this summer than ever before, but we can be seen at more bridal shows this summer as well. Last week was the Franklin Bridal Ball. We had a great time! Below are some photos Whitney took at the show.

The brides-to-be were given pink caps with veils so the vendors could pick the actual brides out of the crowd.

The show was sponsored by Premiere Bride Magazine and The Pink Book. They had all kinds of pink things at the show.

The Brides-To-Be, and one or two kind fiances, were lined up to get into the show.

Even guys can get into pink.


The night hosted a number of fashion shows.

We had a number of friends who were at the show with us. If you missed the show, here is your chance to see a few of the booths.

Maples Wedding Cakes had one of the best looking booths. Of course they also have some of the best cake in town. Jay sent Whitney and I home with an entire sheet cake. The diet will start next week.

A Magical Affair’s giant “photos” held real life models.

I had a great time getting to know the ladies as McNeal Wedding Video.

Mary Alice and Amber, at A Delightful Day, had a killer looking display, as usual.

Our friends at The White Room always have some of the best gowns!

Of course I can’t forget our booth. We stuffed it full of our new albums and other new product. Jen’s album designs are so amazing. We were so excited to show off some of her latest designs. We were also excited to introduce some new product. Our new Lay-Flat Coffee Table Books are super cool! Be sure to stop by the studio to see these. We now are offering custom designed wedding invitations as well. We are keeping Jen busy with this contemporary looking invitation that shows off your engagement photos to your friends and family.



Whitney may have mentioned in a past blog how tragic it was to pack up after the last bridal show. Amongst many things, one of our favorite lamps was destroyed. So, this time we replaced it with this good looking plastic one.

Rebecca’s Bridal Jul 18th | Personal

Yesterday was the Franklin Bridal Ball, and it was so much fun! Everything went well and I’ll have images later. For now, here are a few image’s of Rebecca’s bridal session. You can’t look at Rebecca without smiling, she is so joyful! The images were taken at Cedarwood, one of my favorite locations. They are so generous out there and really make things easy for photographs! And now, the lovely bride…
