Happy Halloween! Oct 31st | Personal

Peter and I always have a blast with our costumes each year, and we are just as excited about what we have for tonight. For now, here is one of our favorites from two years ago. Everything was hand made, and the ghost trap even opened automatically when you set it down. The first one has a little photoshop action!

Introductory Photography Workshop, November 1st & 8th Oct 21st | Personal

I am SOOO excited about our upcoming photography workshop! This has been something I have wanted to do for several years now, and am thrilled to see it all come together. Teaching has always been a passion of mine, and being able to incorporate it with photography is just a natural step for me. We are already planning another class for the beginning of next year for those who can’t make it this time. We only have 2 openings remaining, so if you are interested, let us know right away! Here is the description of the class.

Introductory Photo Workshop November 1 & 8.

Do you own a digital SLR camera and are still afraid to take photos with the manual setting? Are you familiar with your camera but would like to learn how to make your photos look more professional?

Whitney will be teaching a two-day introductory course to photography. The small class, limited to eight participants, will cover the basic, and most important aspects of photography. The limited class size will allow each participant one-on-one instruction with Whitney.

The first Saturday will include an interactive lesson on the basics of digital photography. You will learn the principles behind adjusting your camera’s ISO, shutter, and aperture and how to apply them to your photography. You will also understand the abilities of using natural lighting and the importance of composition.

The second Saturday will involve an actual photo shoot with a number of couples. Learn how to instruct and pose while keeping your subject looking natural.

The two-day class will be from 9am to 6pm on Saturday, November 1 and Saturday, November 8. This first-time, discounted, entrance fee of $150 includes lunch on both days. You must provide your own camera and lens. (If you do not own a digital SLR and still want to learn, there are several companies that you can rent one from for the weekend. Let me know, and I will send you this information ). Space is limited so please contact ASAP, if you are interested or have any additional questions.

The Team! Oct 16th | Personal

I’m sure that some of you remember when we introduced Stephanie as our Studio Manager. Well, she is still here, just with a different job! When Audrey took over as Studio Manager, Stephanie became our Product Manager, handling orders, editing images, and keeping our orders on track! It’s been great having a team which gives me more time to do what I do best, Photography! Here we all are.

Meet Audrey – Dove’s Studio Manager Oct 14th | Personal

Well since this is my first blog post I thought I would take the opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Audrey Phillips and I am the new studio manager for Dove. Hello!
Whitney has asked me to post a blog each week with random ramblings about things I love and that are wedding-esque. Something you should know about me is that I love hunting for a deal, and hopefully I will be able to share some of those tips with you as well.
Let me first start off by telling you a little about my wedding story and how I came to work with Whitney and Peter. My husband, Ben, and I first met in college at Belmont University in 1996. We dated briefly before breaking up for the summer. Over the course of the next 8 years we lived our own lives, but we always stayed in touch. We started dating again in August of 2005, were engaged in June of 2007 and married at Cedarwood in October of 2007. So there is the quick version of my wedding story.
So how did I come to work at Dove you ask. Well, Whitney and Jen were the photographers for our wedding. Yes, I loved Dove so much that I asked if I could work for them. So here I am, and loving it!
I look forward to sharing more each week and hope that you will find my musings entertaining and somewhat informative. ?

This is our family…

New Beginnings Oct 10th | Personal

I’m sure a lot of you have noticed our absence from the blog this week. We have been setting up our new space, finishing up our summer weddings, and getting prepared for some really exciting things coming up! Over the next few weeks we will be introducing a new member of our team, show off our new studio, and share some wonderful recent weddings. One of the things we are most excited about is the new practices we are putting into place to make things run smoothly and efficiently, and our first step to share is our new studio number! It is one number to reach everyone here rather than just me with my cell. We will be working on updating all of our contact information with the new number in the coming weeks.

Our new number: 615-730-7716

Can’t wait to hear from you!

We’re Moving! Oct 01st | Personal

It’s moving day!

We are moving the studio down the road to a larger location. Our new studio is at 1700 Hayes St. (suite 100A)

So, if we are not very responsive this week, you now know why. Actually, our internet will not be hooked up at the studio until Thursday.

The above photo is our friends Dan and Jason helping pack up at our “old” studio.

We can’t wait for you to come by and see the new one!

- Peter
