We had absolutely the most gorgeous day to kick off our first session of the year! Meredith and Mike’s mini destination engagement session just outside Lexington, Ky was such a dream. Meredith’s dad is involved in the horse industry, so Meredith found an absolutely gorgeous farm for us to visit for our shoot (and which also happens to be where triple crown winner American Pharoah currently resides!). Meredith and Mike met at UK, where Mike played football, and currently live in Lexington with their adorable dog Hank. They wanted their session to be carefree and fun, and show the lighthearted side of their story and love. Well, I would say they definitely made that happen! These two are so sweet and easygoing together, and we had the best time exploring this beautiful farm with them and documenting just a little slice of what an exciting season of life this is! I love how excited Meredith was because this was the first wedding planning related event that other people would see, so it made it officially official that the festivities are beginning!

On to some of our favorite images!

Congratulations again, Meredith & Mike! We can’t wait to celebrate with you all later this year 🙂 Thanks for showing us around the farm!

    Mahlia - These are beautiful! What a gorgeous location!

One of our favorite things about living in Nashville is that we get to know and work with so many incredible creatives! The team at Cedarwood weddings is no exception, and we are always so excited to see what they bring together for their annual style show. Yesterday dawned unexpectedly snowy after weeks of 70 degree temperatures, but that didn’t slow down the creative energy! Every year, Cedarwood puts together a style show for their couples to come and get inspiration, taste food, and enjoy the venue. It’s Southern hospitality at it’s finest, and besides seeing all the creative decor and catching up with some of our favorite vendors, we just love being out in nature and taking in all the beauty that surrounds the historic home.

Take a peek at some of the beauty from this year’s show! Venue, Decor, Planning, Styling, and Floral Design all by Cedarwood Weddings!

We are so very excited to be sharing some of our favorite images from Melissa & Adam’s This is Us engagement session today! One of our very favorite things about engagement session is when we can collaborate with the couple to incorporate something that has meaning to them and their relationship, to be able to capture a little glimpse of what life looked like for them before they were married. So when they look at their photos, they think “this is us.”

Melissa and Adam are so intentional about their relationship, and about remembering their story. Which I absolutely love! So when we were brainstorming for their engagement session, Melissa shared with me the story of “that Saturday.” Everyone has that day…you know, the day when you when you knew things were real, that this was was a relationship that was meant to be. For Melissa, that day was a Saturday that started with Adam showing up with a cup of coffee before they went for a walk around downtown Franklin, then driving various scenic backroads, before ending up with a farm that has a special significance to Adam’s family and now to Melissa & Adam’s relationship. We were able to tie that in to their session (including one of their favorite past times: playing backgammon!), and I just love that we were able to create these images for them in places that have so much meaning to their relationship! Not to mention, we managed to have the most gorgeous fall weather, and just had so much fun hanging out with these two and having time to create!

Best way to end a session!

Congratulations again, Melissa and Adam! We absolutely can’t wait to document all the joy of your wedding celebrations in April–it’s going to be here before we know it!

Thank you all for stopping by the blog!  Hope everyone is having a great week, and congratulations to all the recently engaged couples out there starting out on their wedding planning adventure! If you’re looking for natural photos of real moments for your wedding day, we’d love to chat with you!

    Mahlia - What a lovely and authentic engagement session! Beautifully captured.

Hello, everyone!

Continuing our recapping of engagement sessions from last fall, today we’re excited to share more of David and Elizabeth’s mini Nashville engagement session! We love all engagement sessions, but it’s extra special when the people we are photographing happen to be family! David is my cousin, and growing up we all lived about 5 hours away from each other, but in the last few years, several of us have ended up in the Nashville area, which has meant lots more hanging out. We were all so excited when David and Elizabeth decided to tie the knot! These two are so fun together, and just enjoy hanging out and doing life together (along with their two dogs)! We did their session in downtown Nashville, including a stop by the Ryman, where they had their first date!

On to a few of our favorite images:

Congratulations again, David and Elizabeth!! We can’t wait to celebrate with you all soon, and to welcome Elizabeth officially to the family!! <3
