A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting my first solo wedding. The bride was my beautiful cousin Calli, marrying her longtime sweetheart Brad at a gorgeous Tennessee estate in near perfect weather at sunset. I couldn’t have asked for a better first wedding, with a perfect setting, surrounded by family, working with a bride who gave me the freedom to be as creative as I’d like, and I feel extremely blessed to have been a part of it! For some reason, when talking to other photographers about venturing out into wedding photography, most all have either flat out discouraged moving into weddings, or given me a look of “Really? I hope you know what you’re doing.” While I can’t say that I have it all figured out, and I realize there will be ups and downs in this industry, I am really excited to continue down this road and be a part of a couple’s ultimate and public expression of their love!
Here are some of my favorite shots from this gorgeous wedding and weekend! View the full gallery here!
