Castleton Farms Winter Engagment Today, I counted how many times I am shooting at Castleton Farms this year. It is 10, you guys. TEN weddings at one venue is a crazy high amount. I have 28 weddings booked for 2021, and 1/3 of them are at the same place. I can’t tell you how crazy […]

Nashville Engagement Session Mae and Casey’s Nashville engagement session has been a long time coming, you guys. They were originally supposed to get married in May of 2020. I had a wedding in Nashville a couple months before theirs, and we planned to do their engagement photos afterwards. Then, COVID and the Nashville tornadoes hit, […]



Heartland Meadows Engagement Lauryn and Dakota’s engagement session was at their wedding venue. I had heard of Heartland Meadows, but I had never been there. I also had no idea it’s practically in my back yard. I’m glad I got to see it before the wedding day though because this place is massive. It has […]

Courthouse Engagement Session Sarah and Troy are from California. They moved to Knoxville for Troy to complete his PhD in philosophy. They haven’t explored much because as soon as they moved here, the pandemic hit and everything shut down. The part of town they know best is downtown. They also wanted a staple Knoxville location […]

RT Lodge Engagement Session I learn so much about my couples at their engagement sessions, and every single session is different.

Vintage Car Engagement at Castleton Farms Okay, so this is pretty cool…the vintage car itself, but also, the story behind it.
