Loren and Pete

Loren and Pete tied the knot on October 9, 2009! We have worked closely with Loren and Pete over the past year, and were excited to be their photographers during their destination wedding TO Chattanooga TN! Loren has a great eye for design and style and the details of her wedding day prove it. I loved watching Pete's reaction to Loren coming down the aisle towards him--a great moment for sure!

Thank you to Divine Designs by Amanda, The Grandview, Blissful Moments, and so many more that were a part of the celebration. And a huge thank you to Loren and Pete for commissioning us, you both have been wonderful to work with!

Shannon and Wally's Vow Renewal

A new chapter. A grateful nod to their past, and a hopeful embrace of life's next season.

This was the focus of Shannon and Wally's evening vow renewal this past week and we were frankly in awe to be a part of it. Their small garden ceremony took place at dusk on top of Lookout Mountain at The Grandview--the location of their original vows five years ago this past May. Shannon found the dress that she was in love with from the very beginning and they joined with their minister and closest friends to recommit their vows. After their ceremony, the group made their way to Easy Bistro for drinks and dinner (side note: I am in LOVE with the food and swank of this restaurant! A must see for sure!)

Thank you both for such a romantic and heartfelt evening, I'm not sure that your pictures do justice to how beautiful your love truly is!

Beau and I MAY be scheming about following their footsteps in the next year or so... **Small confession--At nearly every wedding I wonder what dress I would choose/what shoes I would wear if I did it over again. I'm still in love with my vintage-inspired customized Maggie Sottero but we'll have to see... ;)

Rebecca and Brad's Lovely Beach Wedding!

Rebecca and Brad are married! I am in love with the gorgeous beach wedding that we shot down in FL this past weekend. It was EXTRA special for me, as I've known Rebecca since our high school days back at Clay High (feels like a lifetime ago!). We sadly lost touch over the years as we both chased our dreams around the country, so when she called to tell me that she was planning her wedding and wanted us to be their photographers I was ecstatic! What an honor! My favorite part of the entire day was watching Brad admire Rebecca as she strolled down the beach towards him--they are perfect together! Thanks again Becca, and CONGRATULATIONS! Enjoy your time in Napa Valley (lucky girl....!) ;)

I loved her colors! So fresh

Watching the guys stroll down the beach towards the ceremony site was awesome, they definitely caught the attention of all the beach-goers!

They were up for anything, Rebecca's playfulness made the shoot a lot of fun

Great light, the day was breezy and thankfully not to hot....

Rebecca and her sisters

A classic move by our good friend the expresssions of those who didn't know it was coming! lol!

Baby Brett has arrived!

Wow! We have had quite the whirlwind trips these past few weeks! We are thankfullyhome safe and sound and now have a new member added to the family! Last Sunday my sister Melissa and her husband Jimmy welcomed little Brett to the world and we were luckily around to celebrate with them. :) On our way back from a much anticipated break in St. Pete, Beau and I swung into Ocala, FL and hung out with the soon-to-be grandparents while they waited at the hospital. Brett arrived a healthy 7 lbs 6 oz, 21 inches long and with 10 long fingers for throwing a football (as his daddy proudly pointed out!) I was so happy that I had my camera (along with our 50 1.2--LOVE it!) to document the day. Enjoy as we passed around the little guy!
Classic men-in-waiting-room picture. :)

Proud new daddy (notice the Brett Favre correlation to his son though...right) ;)

My parents checking out their first grand baby!

Uncle Beau! No, he didn't really make Brett cry :)

Jimmy's parents were so excited! I love how Mr. Bearden was holding such a little bundle.

Proud new grandmas!
