Mirbeau Inn & Spa Wedding New York • Marissa and Brendan

I love photographing weddings in upstate New York. I always find myself up there sometime in August. Weddings in New York are so different than what I’m used to photographing in New Orleans. The New York air is wonderful that time of year as well. I feel so lucky to be able to escape the humidity of the south for a few days :)

Anyway, Marissa and Brendan got married at the Mirbeau Inn & Spa in Skaneateles, New York. The pine trees were the perfect back drop for portraits :) I haven’t gotten my film back from the lab yet, but here are a few of my favorite digital photographs! I can’t wait to share the Polaroids… if you guys follow me on Instagram I’m sure you’ve already seen a couple of them :)

Parthenon Wedding Nashville • Emily and Jiby

Emily and Jiby were the first couple in Nashville that hired me to be their wedding photographer! I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I was when they hired me! They got married at at the Parthenon in Nashville which is an epically beautiful venue! I felt so lucky that I was able to shoot at such a fantastic venue! Oh! Did I mention they had a glow stick exit? How fun is that! I was wearing my glowsticks around for the last bit of the reception too :) Anyway, here are a few of my favorites from their day <3

Franklin Tennessee Anniversary Session • Cassi and Allen

I’ve known Cassi since high school (as in 15 years!). Her and her sweet husband got married a couple years ago, and she wanted me to take a few photographs of them in their wedding attire! So we walked around some amazingly beautiful fields and back country roads in Franklin :) Here are some of my favorites!

Beauregard-Keyes House Wedding New Orleans • Katie and Michael

I am so excited to finally be able to share this wedding with you guys!! It was featured on Southern Weddings today!! Katie and Michael got married last October at the historic Beauregard-Keyes House in the French Quarter. It’s one of my favorite venues in New Orleans. It not only has a beautiful courtyard in the back (which is so unbelievably New Orleans!) there is another courtyard garden on the side of the house which is so perfect for ceremonies! Plus, the inside of the house is just beautiful. There is tons of antique furniture and high ceilings. Katie wore a lace dress from Yvonne LaFleur and Michael wore J. Crew! Who doesn’t love a man in J. Crew?! Anyway, here are some of my favorites from their day!

Ralph’s on the Park Wedding New Orleans • Alisha and Mark

Intimate weddings are one of my favorite things to photograph :) Alisha was so nervous before the first look, but you could tell how in love they were when they saw each for the first time… It was beyond sweet! The getting ready photos were taken at The Hotel Royal in The French Quarter and had their ceremony at City Park in New Orleans. After the ceremony the reception was held across the street at Ralph’s on The Park!

Hoover Dam and The Petrified Forest National Park

I’m secretly sad that our road trip is over. We had spent forever and ever planning it, and it’s so crazy that we actually did it. I had wanted to take a road trip across the county for years! Anyway, the last two stops on our adventure were the Hoover Dam (it’s huge!) and the Petrified Forest. I had gone to the Petrified Forest when I was a lot younger and I was so excited to go back. Anyway, here are the last of my road trip photographs :)

Cabazon Dinosaurs, Wigwam Motel and Santa Monica California

I’m a sucker for road side attractions. My parents traveled so much when I was a kid that, to this day, whenever I see something silly on the side of the road I want to stop and look at it. So, obviously, when I found out about the Cabazon Dinosaurs I just had to check them out. They are big and amazing and totally silly. Next, we made our way over to the Wigwam Motel in San Bernardino, California. This was, by far, my favourite hotel of the trip. We got to stay in little TeePee’s!!! It was built in 1949, and there are three left in the country. On our final day in California, we spent a cloudy few hours on a beach in Malibu and then wandered down Santa Monica Pier :)

Saguaro Cacti and Joshua Tree National Park

We finally made it back home to Nashville a few days ago, but I still have more photographs to blog! After we finished with the Grand Canyon, we headed down to Arizona so Skylar could see the Giant Saguaro Cacti that are literally everywhere down there. I used to live in Scottsdale, so I knew just how epic they were. The next day we headed across to California to go to Joshua Tree!!! I was so excited to go, and little did I know I was about to see the cutest Cacti ever… Cholla Cacti, nicknamed Teddy Bear Cacti, are literally the most adorable things I’ve ever seen. They’re pretty vicious though, so I had to settle for taking photographs of them :)

Courtney and Ben

Courtney and Ben are two of the most genuine people I’ve ever met. I photographed their engagements a while back, and I was so excited for their wedding! They got married at the Audubon Clubhouse Cafe in New Orleans, and it was such a sweet venue. It was perfect for an intimate wedding like theirs. They had their ceremony under one of the big oak trees that Audubon Park is famous for. Here are a few of my favorites :)

Scout

Scout is one of the happiest babies that I’ve ever gotten to hang out with. He was a tiny bit shy at first, but I knew that when he handed me his truck to play with we were going to be BFF for ever. I photographed these on my Hasselblad using Kodak Portra 400 film. I went to his house in East Nashville and then to a park down the street. He’s so precious and has the most beautiful blue eyes! Here are some of my favorites :) There are a couple with his sweet mommy Taylor too :) I’m so glad I got to photograph Scout in his first home… they all moved a couple weeks later to a bigger house :)

Emily and Jiby

Jiby and Emily were the first couple in Nashville to hire me to photograph their wedding! I was so excited!! They getting married at The Parthenon in July, and I couldn’t be more excited! I love getting an opportunity to photograph new places :) Anyway, we photographed their engagement session at Vanderbilt University (where they met!) in downtown Nashville. It was the first time I had been to the campus, so I was super excited. I can’t even begin to imagine how beautiful it will look in the fall. Anyway, here are some favorites… they even brought their dog Beauford along for a few photographs!

Lauren and Chad

Lauren and Chad hired me a while back to photograph their wedding in New Orleans. A few weeks after I moved to Nashville Lauren sent me an email and asked if I would be willing to photograph their engagements in Murfeesboro, about 45 minutes away from me. I, of course, said yes and was so excited to get to photograph another new location so shortly after I had moved to Nashville!! Lauren and Chad both went to MTSU and wanted to have their engagement photographs taken at the Cannonsburgh Trailhead. There is a really beautiful trail that weaves through amazing trees and train tracks! Here are some favorites :) I can’t wait for their wedding in December!
