Kingsport, TN: Lakyn + Neal's Backyard Summer Engagement Session

Kingsport, TN: Lakyn + Neal's Backyard Summer Engagement Session

I met Lakyn through a local photography group and asked her to second shoot a wedding with me out of town. We spent the weekend chatting about all of our favorite things and have since become close friends! I was incredibly honored (and ecstatic) when she asked me to be her wedding photographer!

I met up with Lakyn and Neal for their engagement session at Lakyn's father's land in Kingsport that happens to be at the base of Bay's Mountain. Needless to say, it was right up my alley! We hiked through the fields and chased the sun, touched some questionable weeds and laughed the entire evening. We ended the session at her dad’s private pond and sat around a campfire as the stars came out.

Roan Mountain, TN: Melanie + Dave's Nature Inspired Intimate Mountaintop Wedding

Roan Mountain, TN: Melanie + Dave's Nature Inspired Intimate Mountaintop Wedding

Melanie and Dave are both arborists, so it was only fitting that their vows were read on a mountaintop surrounded by their closest family. We met up on a warm, hazy, Saturday at the end of May, and big puffy clouds were rolling across a clear blue sky. After becoming husband and wife, someone spotted a rainbow in the distance! We ran over and snagged a few photos with it in the background before the rainbow disappeared— definitely a first for me on Roan! After enjoying the rainbow, we hiked the trail around the balds taking photos and watched the sun set behind Roan High Knob.

Limestone, TN: Kayla + Aaron's Rustic Pastel Spring Wedding at the Millstone

Kayla and Aaron were married on a beautiful Spring day in April at the Millstone! The week prior had been pretty chilly, for Winter kept lingering and bringing us colder temperatures. Luckily, the sun came out and warmed us all on their wedding day! After lunch, Kayla put on her gorgeous, ivory and lace, Maggie Sottero gown and was ready for the first look. We then headed out to the lawn to meet Aaron, where she would see her husband-to-be for the first time. The two said, "I do," and kissed as husband and wife under the branch arbor! We then headed to the reception for delicious barbecue and cake to celebrate the newlyweds!
