Hello, everyone!

Chris and I are traveling with family this week (recharging before the start of wedding season!), but we are excited to share a few of our favorite images from Lesette and Cleve’s engagement session last week! Lesette and Cleve are high school sweet hearts, although they actually attended rival high schools! They met through mutual friends, fell in love, and will be getting married next spring. These two are so sweet, and we can not wait to celebrate with them! Cleve plays golf at Austin Peay, and arranged for us to do their engagement session at the beautiful Golf Club of Tennessee! We were joined at the beginning of the session by their puppy, Lola, who is pretty much the cutest thing ever, then got to explore the golf course on one of the most perfect spring evenings we’ve had in a long time!

Here are a few of our favorites–enjoy!

    Jo Anne Freeman - Beautiful pictures!

Ohhhh you guys. I don’t even know where to start with how much I love this session, and how thankful we are to know this beautiful family! It has taken practically forever to narrow these images down to a somewhat acceptable number (and I’m probably still pushing it;-))! At our very core, the thing Chris and I love most about photography is creating images that help people remember what a certain time in their life felt like. We are so thankful for the opportunity to document this time as the Scobeys await the birth of their little boy in the fall–so exciting!

This is a family of dreamers, and a family of doers. A family full of so much love and encouragement and creativity. Graham and Ashley are AMAZING photographers in Atlanta (among many other things!), and we first “met” them online through various interactions. We finally met Graham in person last fall, but this was the first time we got to meet Ashley in person! Even though we felt like we’ve known them forever  :)  Documenting a little bit of their daily life was such an inspiration. From playing games together, to tending the family garden, story time with grass stained knees, to cooking dinner together, every moment was full of laughter and joy (and overseen by the family dog, Bear!). Perfect, even amongst it’s imperfections.

Here are a few (ok, a LOT) of our favorites of the day!

Hello friends!

Happy Tuesday! Today we’re excited to share some images from an amazing style shoot we photographed for Commerce Street Events back in April! We first met Morgan and Erin, two of the planners for Commerce Street, a few weeks before, and loved their dedication to creativity for their clients. It’s so awesome to live in a city of creatives, and get to share in the creative process together! We collaborated on this modern style shoot to bring a little bit of a twist to the typical Nashville wedding! Aerial Nashville was the perfect venue, overlooking Broadway, and with a great view of the Ryman in the background! Morgan chose the beautiful gray and silver linens from La Tavola, and the rest of the theme developed from there. I loved the mint julep cups. the giant candelabra, and the silver calligraphy on the place cards! I think one of my favorite touches were the welcome and gift boxes from Batch Nashville–you know how we love all things local! Our model, Megan, was amazing, and absolutely stunning in two different Monique Lhuillier gowns from The Bride Room (one of our favorite dress shops in town–brides, you have to check them out!)!

Here are some of our favorite images!

A huge thank you to all the amazing vendors that made this shoot happen! Of course the lovely ladies of Commerce Street Events were incredible. Flowers were by OSHI Flowers, the invitation suite was by Ink Nashville with calligraphy by Val Cole, and the cake was by Dulce Desserts (another favorite!). Linens by La Tavola linens, and rentals from Music City Tents and Events. Hair and Make up by Something Borrowed, Something Blue. Welcome boxes and favors by Batch Nashville. Incredible food by Catering and Events by Suzette! Thanks to The Bride Room for the beautiful dresses and the Paris by Debra Moreland headpiece, and to Aerial Nashville for letting us use their beautiful space! You are all so great!

Thanks for stopping by the blog, everyone! We’ve got a lot coming up that we can’t wait to share with you, so we hope you stop back by soon! Have a great week!

    Modern Wedding Inspiration - […] you enjoy this peek at the shoot, and do hop on over to Jen & Chris’ blog, too, to see […]


Happy Tuesday, friends! Today we are excited to share a few favorite images from a mini engagement session we photographed last week with Marilyn and Joe! We headed out to Percy Warner Park, where they often go hiking, and where Joe proposed (right at the beginning of the trail, because he couldn’t wait any longer! Love it:)). These two are so sweet and fun, and it was a gorgeous day! Marilyn and Joe met in college, around graduation, right before Marilyn moved to Nashville. They were long distance for awhile, but now both call Nashville home! We absolutely can’t wait for their wedding in August!

On to a few of our favorite images:


We finished up the session hanging out for a bit in 12 South, which was perfect!

Thanks for hanging out with us, Marilyn and Joe! We can’t wait to celebrate with you all at your wedding!

Have a great week, everyone!
