Colt + Tori’s Wedding Day

Colt + Tori. February 17th, 2018. The most perfect wedding day ever– rain and all! Colt and Tori have been friends of ours for many years now, and it has been the sweetest thing watching them grow together. Not many people can say that they were middle school sweethearts and stuck it out. I guess when you “know,” you just know! They will have the coolest story to tell their kids and grandkids one day. They are always laughing together (Colt has the jokes up his sleeve), which is the key to it all in my opinion. Anyways, we love and adore you both and are so very happy to have been apart of this amazing day in your lives. I hope you love and cherish these photos forever! ❤


Colossians 3:14: “And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”

Colt + Tori Engagement

Colt + Tori. These two have always had eachother’s hearts for as long as I can remember. They are sweet, sarcastic (lol), and share lots of laughs together, which is my favorite thing. We are so glad to call them friends, and I couldn’t wait to capture these photos for them. We are so excited and overjoyed about their wedding day, and we wish you guys so much happiness in the years to come. I hope you guys will look back at these photos when you are 80 one day and remember how deeply you have always loved one another.  Congratulations!

Makenzi + Wade Maternity

Wade + Makenzi… and this time we are adding one more to the mix! Say hello to Baby Brooks ❤ They drove all the way to Chatt to see me, and I couldn’t have been more excited to do this session for them. Makenzi wanted warm tones and romantic scenery, and that’s exactly what we found on the top of Lookout Mountain. I love when my clients have that one perfect vision that’s worth making the drive for. But anyways… Wade + Makenzi seriously make my heart overflow! For real though…alllllll the heart eyes over here, y’all.  Also, can we just take a second to admire that glow!!? I mean, I hope I look this amazing pregnant one day haha! Makenzi + Wade, I am so blessed by your friendship! I can’t wait to meet baby Brooks! I know you guys will be the most amazing parents ever.

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.  My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.  Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:13-16


Maggie + Patrick

If you know Maggie + Patrick, you know that they are one of a kind. They are God fearing, kind, compassionate, and hilarious! They light up a room together. They have the most fun together, and they are guaranteed to make you smile. I feel so blessed to have been a small part in their amazing day. You guys are goals, seriously. I admire your love for the Lord, and I pray that he blesses the both of you in building your life and family together.

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go,
for to you I entrust my life.

Psalm 143:8

Wade + Makenzi

Wade + Makenzi.

Funny story. When these two first asked me to photograph their elopement, I seriously couldn’t contain my excitement. I mean, come on… this is my first ever man bun session!! Ha! We had a blast. All of that aside, these two are so crazy in love, and it shines on their faces when they are together. I often think about how blessed I am to get the chance to meet some of the most amazing people. I can see how the Lord is intertwined in it all. Love hard. Love with everything you have. That’s what I’m reminded of when I see Wade + Makenzi. This session will always be dear to my heart! I hope these photos fill your heart with love and light for years to come. Thanks for letting me be a small part in it all.

I have known Lexus for half of my life it seems! She is intelligent, sweet, determined, and did I mention drop dead gorgeous? Her love for Jesus shines. She has always been like a little sister to me. Now, she’s a senior in high school, and I can’t believe it’s time for senior pictures already! Lexus came to Chattanooga to hang with me for a few days, and we had an absolute blast. The possibilities are endless, sweet girl!



Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. Psalm 27:14


Maggie + Patrick

Maggie + Patrick. Oh how I love this couple and their character! They are full of light, laughter, and fun. They  came to Chattanooga to have a city-style engagement shoot, and it turned out to be one of my favorites to date. We had so much fun running around town and exploring new places. You found each other many years ago, and what a blessing it is to do life together forever, always learning and growing in Christ. You guys make my heart smile. I absolutely can’t wait for September 16th!

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28



Georgia. Isn’t she lovely? Not only that, but she’s beautiful inside and out!  Her smile is captivating, and her love for life attitude is contagious. I couldn’t wait to share this special session with you guys. She rocked the entire thing.

I wish you the very best, Georgia! You will do amazing things. I hope you have a wonderful senior year. Take it all in and savor the memories forever.
