The Carpenter’s Reception

Jason and Leslie had their wedding reception at Cellar 1 in Downtown Nashville.  This place had a really intimate and unique feel.  Here are a few of my favorite moments of the night.  Thanks guys for letting me be apart of your fun evening!

P.S. We had an Alabama Groom’s Cake at our wedding and Jason’s blew ours out of the water!  Awesome cake!!!!

Happy Anniversary!

I have had several couples ask me to take their one year anniversary photos in their wedding attire.  This is an awesome idea for those who

a. Want to wear their dress again

b. Didn’t have a lot of time on their wedding day to take couple photos

c.  It’s just fun to hear people on the street yell “congratulations” or “you look beautiful!”

So I present to you the Strunks- Happy One Year Anniversary.  Hope you love the photos, you guys look great!

Finally!

I love taking bridal portraits because you can take your time- (except when its about to rain), get the lighting right, get some sweet shots of the bride, and it also takes away an element of stress from the wedding day because its one less thing to cram in.   The one draw back is I can’t post them till after the wedding!!!! Here is Jennifer Conley’s bridal portraits.  She married Chad at The Hermitage (Andrew Jackson’s home) in a quaint, candlelit,  little chapel.  It was very romantic.  We went to the Hermitage a month before the wedding and took her bridal portraits in one of the gardens.  They turned out amazing.  Brides- this is an amazing place to get married if you love gardens or little chapels. Let me know what you think.

Sneak Peak

Here is one photo from Jess’s bridal shoot.  We had lots of fun and got some great shots- unfortunately Josh, her fiance checks my blog so I cannot show her dress.   Sorry Josh- no previews!  This one is actually one of my favorites from Saturday.  I can’t wait for your wedding!

More favorites.

I was going through and putting my favorite 24 photos together for a little purse album for Ty and Adam.  How can I pick my favorite 24 photos- they all look so good.  I thought I had posted some of my very favorites but as I was going through I found some more- imagine that!  Here they are.  Stay tuned for some more posts soon- I have some engagement photos and family photos to post from the past couple weeks.  I am also shooting my friend Jessica’s bridal portraits this Saturday- I’ll check to see if her fiance ever checks blogs.  I might have to wait until Sept to post her bridal shoot.

More favs!

Ty and Adam’s Wedding

Here are a few photos from the Hall wedding from a few weeks ago.  It looked like buckets of rain were about to pour out from the sky at any moment.  I kept telling Ty everything was going to be perfect and it wasn’t going to rain!  Luckily I didn’t lie to her and the rain held off until after the reception was over.  I can just sense these things- I have secretly always wanted to be a weather woman.  😉  So in the end the wedding was perfect and the overcast sky made for beautiful photos.  The wedding was great and I got to see old friends and make new friends.  I met Ty in college and I am so glad she asked me to take her photos.  She is beautiful inside and out and her and Adam seem perfect for each other.  Congrats guys- I wish you the best!

All the World’s a Stage

I love the fact that every wedding is different.  It really keeps me on my toes and stretches me creatively, technically, and emotionally.  Here are some photos of David and Hannah’s wedding at the Belcourt theater.  Their theater themed wedding was played out perfectly and was a very unique idea.  After all the festivities we walked around Hillsboro Village- which was a lot of fun.  Everyone was honking and congratulating them.  We had a great time and the photos look great!
