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!

Holly + Jason | The Bridge Building

This may be my new favorite venue! The Bridge Building is the newly renovated building located at the end of the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge on the stadium side. It offers my new favorite view of the Nashville skyline. It was a pleasure to shoot Holly and Jason's wedding there, second shooting with Sean McLellan from McLellan Style!

Jamison + Taylor | Hermitage Hotel

Jamison and Taylor were married in a beautiful October ceremony with the reception at the Hermitage Hotel. They originally had planned to marry in Jamison's hometown of Philadelphia, but the army had other plans for them, and they had to bump up plans early and marry in Nashville. I'm so glad they did! They were such a fun couple (ask them about the beer fest!), and we had a blast on their wedding day.

Margaret + Brandon | Cellar One

Cellar One is an awesome venue in downtown Nashville. It has a gorgeous courtyard off of 1st Avenue that I had passed by many times, but this time I actually got to shoot there! I was shooting with the awesome Mandy Whitley Weddings, and we had a blast with this couple! The ceremony took place in the courtyard, while the reception was held indoors. And this group had some dancers!

Stacey + David | Aerial

Stacey and David were married on a beautiful day in October in downtown Nashville. Their ceremony and reception were held at Aerial, the rooftop venue overlooking the bustling nightlife of Broadway. They had a lovely intimate wedding with their closest family and friends, and I was overjoyed to be a part of it.
