{alli & jase}

I hope you are all sitting down, because what follows is what happens when you let your associate blog her own wedding...  TONS and TONS of photos.  She said she was having a hard time narrowing it down, so I could just weed some out, but honestly, I just couldn't!!  She tells the story perfectly I think, from the sweet, sweet ceremony at Samary Plantation in Nashville to the tons of DIY details to the amazing flowers by Melissa Timm.  I've also got to say a huge thanks to my second for the day... Kayla of Kayla f photography.  It was just like old times getting to have her around for the day.

The earth has received the embrace of the sun and we shall see the results of that love - Sitting Bull

This is absolutely a PERFECT spring wedding... rain in the morning and the lovely kiss of the sun in the evening.  These two were so graceful and so undeterred by the weather because they were so focus on how excited they were to be married.  I LOVE couples like that... and I am so happy that the day turned out so be so gloriously beautiful.  ;)

{kate moore: graphic designer extraordinaire}

So, y'all.  I am SO flipping excited to share these pics with you and tell you all about my dear friend Kate. For those of you who don't know her, she shares my office downtown.  Kate is an AMAZING graphic designer who specializes in branding and also creates the most lovely, fun and creative wedding invitation designs EVER.  She needed some images for her new ROCKING website  (which you should totally check out), so we decided on this fun, funky urban vibe just perfect for her.  Kate is funny, sweet, has killer style, and is seriously one of the most beautiful people you could ever meet, inside AND out.  Seriously, everyone I introduce her to falls head over heels in love with her.  And I'm sure you will too... just through these pics.

Now about the shoot...  honest to goodness, this is about the most fun I've had shooting in like, forever. My goal was to keep moving for the entire hour shoot.  We started it off with a couple glasses of wine (liquid courage for Kate and creative juice for me - haha)... then we ran, we laughed, we jumped, we walked backwards, then forwards, we sang and we chased the last of the sunlight right to the horizon.  And the final product... I'm just in love. I hope you are too... if so, leave her a little love note in the comments.  ;)

If you get simple beauty, and naught else, you get about the best of what God invents.  - Robert Browning    

I absolutely adore this wedding from February that is chock-full of simple beauty.  From her lovely white flowers (by the ever-talented Lisa Foster) down to her sweet sparkly shoes, every last detail was perfect... and they also might just be some of the most lovely people I've ever shot.  Just look for the photo of him hugging her after the first look... you'll see what I mean.  xoxo

and I'm not too proud to beg,

oh please shoot my head.

 

**This one from Chrissy Eastridge took some serious work:

Congrats on ten years!

Must really be nice—

To look back with love

At still frames of life.

 

You’ve captured the moments

That people hold dear—

The smiles, the hugs, 

And sometimes, the tears.

 

Our story is special

Give us a chance, you’ll see—

Why Wesley and I’d

Like a session, for free :)

 

We’re starting out married life

Next Saturday—

A covenant, a promise

To love, always.

 

Let’s document our first year

Of married bliss—

To miss out on your art 

Would be truly remiss.

 

We need you, Jennie

To record these memories—

Can you help with our story?

Pretty, pretty, please?

 

**and one more before I announce the winners from Lisa Smith:

Photos are neat-o, 

Jennie and Nikon really

have so much swag-o.       

 

So... obviously, I had to choose the winners randomly, because how in the world else would I narrow it down?!??!?  The 3 winners of mini-sessions are.......

Shana Sparks-Beckett

Heather Wolfe 

aaand....

Amanda McNulty

YAY!!  So... if you are a winner, it is up to YOU to get with me to schedule your session!  You can do it any time this year, but I'd LOVE for you to wait until we have some flowers on the ground and leaves on the trees.  ;)  ENOUGH of this dreary winter weather!!  

Check back tomorrow for the canvas winners and some favorites from the last 10 years.
