When choosing a professional photographer for your wedding, family, maternity, newborn, and beauty photography please ask question to make sure you are dealing with a seasoned professional who is highly skilled to produce the images that you will treasure for years to come. Here are a few things to consider and ask about:

  • Ask to see samples of albums they have created
  • How many weddings and portrait sessions do they shoot a year
  • How long have they been in business
  • Ask for three different references from the past two years
  • What products do they offer…prints, canvas, albums, custom albums
  • Do they print their own images
  • Are images professionally matted and ready for framing when delivered
  • How long before you can see your images
  • What’s the plan if there’s some sort of emergency and the lead photographer can’t get to the wedding
  • What professional training do they have
  • What industry organizations do they support and belong to (WPPI, PPA..etc)
  • Do they have a professional studio

Those are just a few of the things to keep in mind. Remember your wedding photography and portraits are going to last for generations…make sure you make a wise decision.




A beautiful day for nature portraits in the mountains…..

This time of the year the Smokies are just busting out with color. And on a cool afternoon there’s just no better place to go and create portraits. This afternoon Whitney and I headed to the river to see what we could come up with. We shot just outside Townsend, TN in the Great Smokie Mountains. The sound of the river running over the rocks and the birds singing just made this shoot location amazing. There is a motto for this little community that says it’s the Quite Side of the Smokies…it’s so true this is such a peaceful place to create images.

It was a beautiful day for creating some wonderful portraits for Whitney. How long has it been since you had portraits created by a professional photographer? Give me a shot today and let’s set up a time for you to come to the studio and talk about your photography experience and dreams.

Engagement Session with Roxanne and Matthew….

It’s less then three months before their wedding celebration…and they are both so excited. We went out this afternoon to capture some engagement images to help this never forget this amazing time in their lives. Roxanne had a bag full of fun stuff to use in the shoot…and tons of fun ideas. We spent a couple of hours walking around the gardens chatting, laughing and capturing images.

Twice the newborn fun…portraits of the twins.

It wasn’t long ago that Rhiannon and Frank booked into the studio for their maternity portraits…and I can’t forget their son Roman….he kept the entire session hopping, and full of laughs. Then what just seemed a few short weeks later…( I’m sure that Rhiannon will correct me on that.) the twins arrived and they are just beautiful. It was so amazing to watch them at the shoot and realize that they have personalities very different from each other. Wow….they are just so cool

Ginnie and Jeffery’s Wedding Day Celebration

The first time I met Ginnie she was little bitty girl not much taller than my knees. When we lived in Florida many years ago we needed someone we could trust to take care of our two girls while we were away at work. I had the great joy of meeting a lady named Donna who had two beautiful girls just like us…she agreed to watch after our girls in our our home and that’s when I met Ginnie and her sister Amber.

I don’t know about you, but when I think about people in my past I remember them as they were when I last saw them. So when Ginnie contacted me about photographing her wedding, I could not believe what a beautiful young woman she had grown into….but not only did I get to meet Ginnie again I was introduced to Jeffery, the guy who had won her heart. And you want to know something really cool? Jeffery is a photographer…we hit it off from the moment we met.
