Engagement Shoots

Melissa + Dustin's Sunny Avalon Farm Engagement Session | Northeast Tennessee Photographer, East Tennessee Photographer, Knoxville, TN Photographer

We met up with Melissa and Dustin at Avalon Farm in Jonesborough, TN for their engagement session a couple weekends ago and BOY, was it hot! We had watched the weather all day and went through two torrential downpours on our way to their session and surprisingly enough, it cleared up right when we met up with them and turned out to be a beautiful ( but hot) evening! These two tie the knot next May at Avalon Farm and we are so excited to be able to capture that for them!

Melissa and Dustin are so sweet and check out her ring, y’all! So unique and gorgeous! We love these two and their killer baseball theme to bits!

Taylor + Paul's Fall Engagement Session at Carver's Gap in Roan Mountain, Tennessee | Northeast Tennessee Wedding Photographer, East Tennessee Wedding Photographer

We met up with Taylor and Paul last October for their engagement session and boy howdy was it cold! These two braved the cold on top of Roan Mountain like champs. These two get married at the beautiful Camp at Buffalo Mountain in September. The Camp is one of our FAVORITE venues in the area! We love the nature vibes and the owners are just the sweetest and will bend over backward for you.

Taylor and Paul - thanks for coming out to brave the weather with us! We love your faces.

Sarah and Cole's Carver's Gap Engagement Session in Roan Mountain, TN

A little late on this blog since these two crazy-in-love people are getting married this week! Sarah and Cole met in her mom's classroom at a local high school and I think it's safe to say it was destined from the beginning that these two would find love with each other. From what we've talked about planning wise during our consultations, their wedding is going to be super sweet (cue crying behind the camera) and very reliant on their faith!

This engagement session was such a fun time! We hiked to the top of Carver's Gap in Roan Mountain, TN, and even though the mountains were a little hazy on this particular evening, it didn't stop us from getting amazing portraits! We had great conversations about our families and their plans for after they get married! I have no doubt in my mind that these two are going to do amazing things together as husband and wife!

I can't wait for these guys' wedding at a church here in Kingsport, TN and their reception at The Social! It's going to be blast!

Lakefront Engagement Session at South Holston Lake in Bristol, TN

I'm just going to start out by saying - you can't really beat an engagement session on a boat! I met up with Shawna and Matt at Lakeview Dock in Bristol, TN, overlooking the always beautiful South Holston Lake for their engagement session!

We spent the afternoon boating around the lake to find the perfect spot, which proved difficult because we had just come off of what seemed like weeks of rain and some areas were flooded. We finally found a place on Cliff Island, a popular small island with the locals, where we climbed up to the top to get some beautiful portraits with the lake in the background.

Matt boated us back to the dock for a quick change of clothes and then we milled around the docks a little longer, getting some sweet, romantic pictures of these two lovebirds just hanging out and doing what they do best - loving each other. I can't wait for their wedding in September at the Foundation Event Facility in Bristol, TN! They have some great ideas so far and I can't wait to see how they execute them and truly make that space their own!

Adventure Engagement Session at Beauty Spot in Kingsport, Tennessee

These two are such sweethearts and such total troopers too! I knew I would get along with them during our initial phone call, however I knew it even more so when they were so patient with the road closure to Beauty Spot and the frigid cold weather and wind we got the day of their session!

I cannot wait for their wedding at White Fence Farm in Trade, TN! I'm so sure their personalities will shine through everything on their big day!
