Shonta & Nolan – Intimate Chapel Elopement at Lane’s Bend in Cookeville, Tennessee

Shonta and Nolan’s wedding was simply unforgettable. As many of our covid couples did, they stripped things down to the bare minimum but instead of minimizing some, they chose to go the day alone with only the cutest ring bearer ever, their pastor, and the two of us there to capture it. Friends and family watched via zoom, and the love was felt from start to finish. Shonta radiated her pure beauty and glowing confidence, and Nolan’s calm but joyful demeanor was obvious – he simply couldn’t stop smiling. Brandon and I were witnesses to the start of this relationship

Hannah & David – Intimate May Elopement in Cummins Falls, Tennessee

  One of the first things Hannah said to me in our first phone meeting was “we are freaking hilarious!” And you know what, she was right. But she forgot to mention just how precious they were together too. David, a little quieter but just as witty, is absolutely smitten with Hannah and I can tell Hannah would do absolutely anything for David. The two had a chance encounter that “wouldn’t amount to anything” and yet, here they are – married. This fun-loving couple chose Cinco de Mayo to elope, and at her parents’ home near Cummins Mill, they had

Ashlee & John Michael – Quaint Courthouse Elopement

We’ve known Ashlee ever since doing senior portraits for her a few years back. When she got engaged, we were delighted to hear her story and hear about her wedding day plans. Upon hearing that they wanted a courthouse elopement (on a Thursday because their date was just that special), we simply couldn’t wait! We love intimate ceremonies because when you strip away all the fluff, it forces you to think about what REALLY matters at a wedding. Commitment. Love. Honor. And even family. Ashlee and John Michael had all of those, and more. Their vows were exchanged in front

Alissa & James – Del Monaco Winery Elopement

Imagine being surrounded by 14 of your closest family and friends and speaking your deepest words of commitment to your loved one on a balcony. That’s exactly what Alissa and James did a couple of weeks ago. It was a wonderful spring day with blue skies,  peppered with small clouds that were pushed along by the wind. This couple, along with their small crew, traveled from Nashville to Baxter in order to celebrate their love at Del Monaco Winery and Vineyards. When we talked with them about their elopement style wedding day and the plans included a waffle bar, we

2016 Year in Review

2016 was a great year in our world. We met a lot of our personal and business goals (not all of them, of course, because, life) and we had a steady stream of sessions and weddings that kept us on our toes in the best of ways. We are finally getting the hang of scheduling time off (and by we, I mean me, Lindsay) and we had plenty of time to live our own lives in addition to documenting some amazingly wonderful ones. I know I say it every year, but we are truly blessed by our clients – being

Hannah & Aaron – Intimate Fall Elopement in Cookeville

We met Aaron at church one Wednesday night. He was talking about his upcoming wedding and as photographers, we were curious about the photos. As it turns out, his fiance had just emailed us that very day inquiring about our services for an elopement. It took us all a while to put the pieces together but when we did it was a hilarious match made in heaven. These two are some of the most laid back and calm people, they are inseparable and very obviously in love. During our whole meeting with them we noticed them grasping each others hands
