My friends Andrew and Stephanie just had the most amazing wedding (read: party) at River John’s Outfitters in Maryville, Tennessee.
There are many complex parts to the full Bratabandha ritual, but I was asked to capture the fun moments from the “friends and family” part of Lucas’s Bratabandha.
t was such an absolute honor when my wonderful and beautiful friend, Abbey, asked me to photograph her wedding. As many couples have done over the past 18 months, Abbey and her fiancé, Derek, decided to forgo a traditional wedding and have a very small gathering at the Knox County Courthouse instead.
This session was really special and rewarding because a little over a year ago, I took maternity photos for Amye and Aaron (and their pup, Slippers). And now they just celebrated Oliver’s very first birthday. Time is a thief for sure! Amye and Aaron are actually my neighbors, so it’s been such a treat to see them around the neighborhood with Oliver in the stroller.

Driving up to Kristin and Ken’s beautifully wooded lot in Knox County, I was greeted by the lush greenery and the peaceful river at the base of their property. I hopped out of the car and started scoping out spots for our session at the Kolesar home. I was very excited for this session with […]
Standing under the tall hemlock trees, Annie started off a little shy, hiding behind her hat and big beach ball. But within five minutes, she had really warmed up! In no time flat, she was bouncing around, throwing her ball to me, and offering me her Ninja Turtle action figure. In my book, being offered […]
Meet my lovely new neighbors, Amye and Aaron, who are about to be plus one baby boy! (Update and great news: although he arrived nearly a week late, little Oliver is here and our neighborhood is busy setting up meal trains for this new family of three.) This evening session was hot, hot, hot, but […]
