Let me start out this post by saying we are honored to know some of the most incredible, big-hearted, amazing people in the world! The Scobeys are definitely some of those people  :)  We are excited to announce that you can now purchase some of our fine art travel work through Art to Aid, an incredible website that was started by our friend Graham Scobey. Art to Aid is an “online marketplace for creative folks who want to make the world a better place,” and was started as a way for creatives to give back. It’s a way to change the world for the better. A portion of every sale goes to support a cause of the artist’s choice, and there are so many beautiful things on the site!

We have chosen to feature a selection of some of our favorite travel photos, because we believe in adventure, and are inspired by exploring new places. We will be donating part of every sale to Fresh Artists, which is an amazing organization we came across in Pennsylvania, which both supports arts education in schools AND encourages kids to create and give back. We believe that we are ALL made to create, and that the arts are so important at all ages, but especially for children. We are so excited for this opportunity to give back, and can’t wait to see all the good created through Art to Aid!

It’s not every day that we get to photograph the wedding of someone we’ve known since before they were born! Which made Mary and Bill’s Kentucky vineyard wedding at Equus Run Vineyard in Midway, KY, even more special for us! I grew up going to the same church as Mary’s family, and her mom was pregnant with her at the same time my mom was pregnant with my brother. So let’s just say we go way back;-)I hadn’t seen her in years, but Mary has grown into a stunning young woman, who is going to have an amazing life with her new husband Bill by her side! Mary and Bill met while on the same cross country team at Georgetown College. Bill actually proposed at the finish line after they both ran a half marathon last year! They love to just hang out and do daily life type things together, along with their awesome pug, Sneaker!

Their wedding day was amazing, and will be absolutely unforgettable haha. As Mary walked down the aisle, storm clouds started building off in the distance. Thunder boomed in approval of their vows, and just before their first kiss as husband and wife, the rain started coming down sideways! Everyone jumped to their feet, and there was a huge cheer as they were pronounced man and wife and everyone ran for cover! So awesome. Luckily the rain moved through pretty quickly, and cooled things down while everyone enjoyed the beautiful reception.

Here are some of our favorite photos from the day!

bride and groom at the Hermitage HotelHello, everyone!

I hope you are all having a great start to your week! We are excited to share some of our favorite images from Mallory and Andrew’s classic Nashville wedding today! We actually didn’t meet these two until after they had booked with us, thanks to the recommendation of one of our favorite planners, Janie. We met them several months later, along with Mallory’s parents, and knew right away what a sweet and special couple they were, and how excited we were to celebrate with them!

Mallory and Andrew met through the Navy, initially introduced while Andrew was finishing his training and preparing to transfer to the USS OSCAR AUSTIN, where Mallory was serving. Mallory, who is a huge New Orleans Saints fan, notes that this was also the same day the Saints won the Super Bowl! Aboard the ship, Andrew was placed on Mallory’s watch team, and they spent many hours a day carrying out operations together, and many long nights of great conversations. Many of these were about what is most important to them–their faith. They quickly became friends, and that friendship grew over the next two years. They both felt something more, but since dating was discouraged among shipmates, they let it be. However, in late 2012, Andrew was preparing to transfer to another assignment, and they finally made it official! They were both deployed until into 2013, and finally reunited at Andrew’s homecoming that May. They were engaged in July 2013, and began their lives together on Saturday in one of the most beautiful ceremonies we have ever seen!

Their wedding day was absolutely perfect! They chose to do their wedding in Nashville, because Mallory is a Vanderbilt University alum, and they both love the city! The ceremony took place at St. Mary of the Seven Sorrows Church, one of the oldest churches in Nashville. The reception at the Hermitage Hotel was amazing! The whole day was so sweet, emotional, and full of love and joy from all sides. Their family and friends all made us feel so welcome, and I definitely teared up several times throughout the day;)

So after that crazy long intro, here are a few of our favorite images of the day!

Mallory’s dance with her dad started out sweet, then switched to a fun uptempo song, then they busted it out to the Who Dat Nation theme song, in honor of the New Orleans Saints, and passed out beads to kick off the party!

    thanks from a Aunt & Uncle in Elk Wa.

Hello, everyone!

We are so excited today to be sharing our first wedding of 2014! Yay! Jessica and Jon’s wedding, which took place at her parents home in Brentwood, TN, was absolutely perfect. I love the intimacy that happens with a backyard wedding, and all the special touches and extra love that goes into having a wedding at home. So awesome!

One of the things I noticed most about Jessica and Jon on their wedding day was how much they love to laugh together. These two are just so sweet, and really took in every moment of celebrating with friends and family on their wedding day! They love spending time together, and being outdoors (Jon proposed while on a hike at Fall Creek Falls!), walking their dogs, and trying out new restaurants. A crazy weather forecast for Saturday had us watching the skies most of the day, but the rain held off until the reception was well under way, and didn’t even begin to put a damper on the amazing party!

Here’s a few of our favorite images from Jessica and Jon’s classic wedding!

A huge thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make Jessica and Jon’s wedding day perfect, especially to Jessica’s parents for hosting everyone! The beautiful flowers were by Branching Out, the catering was by McConnell’s Catering, rentals by Liberty Party Rentals, and the gorgeous (and delicious!) cakes were by Dulce Desserts. Jessica’s dress was from The White Room, shoes by Jimmy Choo, and hair and make up by Artistry Salon and Spa. And last but not least, the band, Pink Cadillac, was amazing!

Thank you all for stopping by the blog! Hope you’re having a great day!
