honorable mention :: lemonade and lenses :: nashville engagement photographer

In four years of business, I have never once entered any of my work in an actual photography contest. Sure... I've submitted it to blogs and magazines for publication consideration and won awards for various achievements, but I never put my images out there to be judged alongside other amazing photographers' work. Maybe it was the fear of rejection (I'll just go ahead and say it... it was), but today, I am thrilled to be included in a fabulous group of artists awarded Honorable Mention in Lemonade and Lenses April 2014 Cover Contest. I know it's not much, but to me, it was beyond exciting!

Kristin and Read's engagement photos were some of my all-time favorites, and this honor is just as much theirs as mine.

featured :: melissa hearts weddings :: nashville engagement photographer

I was so honored to photograph my sweet friend Claire and her fiance Spence last year in Tennessee, and I was even more excited to have their engagement session featured on Melissa Hearts Weddings over the weekend! They are such a sweet couple, and Claire is seriously one of the most beautiful people I know.  I can't wait to capture their wedding day coming up in December! In the meantime, you should check out their engagement feature here.

 

Many thanks to Melissa for sharing our work!

claire+spence :: engaged :: nashville engagement photographer

In honor of this pretty lady's birthday today, I am thrilled to post this sweet engagement session from the weekend (HAPPY BIRTHDAY CLAIRE!!!). This past Sunday, after a 12-hour day of photographing the lovely wedding of Kristin+Read, I got up bright and early just as the sun was rising to drive to Franklin to photograph this precious couple. For those of you who know me well, you know that super early mornings are definitely not my thing, so Claire+Spence - you two should feel extra loved :)

I met Claire a couple of years ago through my friend Kaley, and since then, she has become one of my dearest friends. She's kind, funny, and one of the most GORGEOUS people I know (personally, I think she could pass for Olivia Wilde), and she and her fiancé Spence together are so much fun to be around and just way too adorable for words. They'll be getting married next winter at aVenue in downtown Nashville, and I am just giddy with anticipation for their wedding.

Fueled by delirium and Starbucks, we started our session in downtown Franklin. I've always loved this area on the outskirts of Nashville... it's just so cute and quaint.

After we wrapped up downtown, we headed out to the little  town of Leiper's Fork for a country feel and some fence climbing. I was mildly obsessed with having the General Lee lookalike in the background there...
