It's hard to believe that I've known Cristina now for about ten years now, but I have. I've shot several modeling sessions with her over the years, and I couldn't ask for a better model - just so classically beautiful. And, when Bob Parr asked her to be his bride, I was honored when she asked me to photograph their wedding at the Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland. It was, to say the least, one of the most beautiful weddings I've ever participated in. From the hand sewn dress and incredible flowers to the elegant dining tent and the raucous dance floor. It was an event that will stand out in my memory for a long, long time. Here are my favorite images from their wedding day. Thank you, Bob and Cristina for having me - it was a pleasure to help capture the memories of your very special day. Congratulations to the both of you and may you have a long and happy life together.
On August 1st, I had the pleasure to travel to Waynseville, NC to capture the wedding of Mrs. and Mrs. Brandy and Stephani Turner. It was my very first opportunity to capture a wedding with two brides, and it was wonderful. The vows were among the most heartfelt I've ever heard at a wedding and most of us in attendance were moved to tears. Special thanks to my partner in crime, Candace Wilson for being the best second shooter I could ever ask for. When she shoots with me it's like having two first shooters to capture all of the great moments in a wedding. Here are some of my favorite images from the day.
Sometimes you just get to be part of something special. Brenda and Trip were traveling from Florida to Wisconsin to visit family and friends, and they chose downtown Knoxville on the way through. They called me on Monday, and there I was on Thursday shooting wedding portraits and covering the ceremony at the courthouse. It was frankly one of the most beautiful, intimate and special days I've ever been a part of, and I appreciate Brenda and Trip allowing me to be a part of it with them.

There are many questions a bride really needs to ask her potential wedding photographer, but there's one question that is often overlooked, and it could make all the difference in the world. Here it is: Are the images you're showing me from a styled wedding shoot or are they from an actual wedding? See, when you go to bridal shows or meet with potential photographers, they're going to try to put their best foot forward by showing you their very best "wedding" images. You may notice that the word 'wedding' is in quotes. That's because many photographers show you incredible images that never actually happened at any wedding ever. They were made in what is known in the industry as a "Styled Wedding Shoot."
Here are a few of my favorite images from Josh and Amanda Rivait's wedding. For those of you who don't know, Amanda has been one of my "go to" models for years now, and I love working with her. It was a real pleasure to be asked to capture her wedding.
I had the absolute pleasure of shooting Josh and Amanda Rivait's wedding last weekend in Nashville. It was a beautiful day and we got some stunning images. Congratulations, Josh and Amanda.
