Gillian + Shawn | Moss Wright Park | Nashville Engagement Photography

Despite our four year age difference, I was close to my cousin Gillian when we were young. So when she announced that she was engaged, I could not have been happier! Shawn proposed to her during the NHL playoffs this past spring. They were at home watching the Preds play, and Shawn decided to snack on some Cracker Jacks. He had replaced the prize in the box with the ring. Gillian was very surprised!

Dan + Kelly | Hodge House | Nashville Engagement Photography

Dan is a fellow wedding photographer, so I was honored when he and his fiancee Kelly asked me to shoot their upcoming wedding. We met up a few weeks before to check out the wedding location, Hodge House in Percy Warner Park, and to take a few sweet engagement photos. Such beautiful light here! Can't wait for the wedding!

Nikki + Joel | Nashville Engagement Photography

The day of Nikki and Joel's engagement session was the coldest of this fall/winter so far. I almost expected them to reschedule once the weather started calling for a high of barely above freezing, but they were troopers! We spent a couple hours walking around downtown, stopping only once for a quick warm-up drink.

Congrats, Nikki and Joel! I can't wait for your wedding next year!

Devan + Dan

Devan and Dan are such a fun couple! They just recently relocated to Tennessee and got an awesome place with lots of space for their sweet pooches, June and Cash (don't you love those names!), as well as their horses. Even though I grew up kind of in the country, I'm really a city girl, so this is actually the closest I've ever been to a horse in my life! Their wedding is back in their native Iowa, but I'm glad I got to shoot their engagement session here at their new home.

Leah + Tim | Clover Bottom Mansion

Leah and Tim met up with me at Clover Bottom in Donelson to capture their gorgeous fall engagement photos. It was a perfect day! Not too hot, not too cold, and the tree colors were amazing! They were a fantastic couple, willing to do any crazy thing I threw at them.
