Stacey + Matt | Wedding

Perfect. That’s what this was. Intimate, cozy, fun… Stacey and Matt were surrounded by those closest to them to celebrate their marriage on the beautiful Ames Plantation, where Stacey grew up. Her and Matt have been together for years and it all started with a real-life “One year at band camp…” story. I have to give major props to Stacey because the stable where they married was a real, working stable. She saw such incredible potential for the stable to host the wedding. The family started work and put in over 60 hours of cleaning, fixing up, and preparing the stable for the wedding. It was absolutely STUNNING. You would never have known that horses were still living there a week before the wedding. Kudos to Stacey and some of her talented family members for making so many of the details!


I want to send a special thank you to Rebecca Dodson of Allison Rodgers Photography for second shooting this with me. She captured beautiful details of the day along with a sweet image of Stacey tapping Matt on the shoulder for their first look. But I especially love the wonderful inside angle she got of Stacey walking down the aisle to meet Matt. Thanks, Rebecca! You’re awesome!

Meg + Paul | Wedding

If you need see a calm bride and a cool groom on wedding day, look no further. Their family and friends were so fun, kind, and were a joy to photograph. And to add to it, it was a crazy, perfect day! I loved that they had an outdoor wedding at one of the most beautiful gardens in Memphis, Dixon Gardens. Congratulations to you two and enjoy!

Meg wore her mother’s bracelet and ring, carried a handkerchief of her mother’s, as well as gave a gift to the American Cancer Society in her mother’s name…

Caitlin + Luis | Wedding

WOAH. I’m pretty sure this is the biggest wedding post I’ve ever done.
I’m not sure if it’s that I’m just indecisive today or that I’m so happy for Caitlin and Luis, not only as a photographer, but as a friend of her and her family for years.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to finally say Congratulations to The Belisario’s!!
This day was remarkably relaxed, fun, and full of energy!
I was very pumped to photograph the first wedding at the BEAUTIFUL Heartwood Hall and I know they’ll have brides flocking to them soon enough!

To the Gunn and Belisario family, thank you for allowing me the honor to celebrate with you!
Caitlin and Luis, I know you are filled with joy in your marriage and I wish the best for you in everything!

What a stud! Luis eats the camera…

Nothing sweeter than when grandpa’s help each other out…

My favorite of the year so far: Mom cries and is comforted as she looks on to Caitlin and dad dancing…

Let the party begin!
