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.

Knoxville Couple falls in love and Elopes.

I met Katie several years ago when she was a student at the University of Tennessee and worked as a technology support person. At the time I was teaching a class on location photography for the university and was always looking for models for the students to photograph. Katie being a creative at heart she was always ready to help out with the class. When she graduated from UTK with a graphics degree, she wanted some graduation photos…and that’s when I got to meet Daniel. I knew from the moment I saw them together that they had a special connection.

A few days ago katie got in touch telling me that Daniel had asked her to marry him. Oh gosh…that was happy dance time for sure. She asked if I would take some photos for them so they would never forget the day. I was so honored and excited. She told me that they were just two simple people who didn’t want to do all the traditional wedding stuff…that they just wanted to meet at the Knoxville Courthouse and get married. I thought that was just a super idea.

This was a first for me….my bride walked into the area where the wedding was to take place and she had to go through a metal detector…LOL…It was so hard not the laugh watch my bride get padded down…but then I couldn’t laugh too much because when I arrive they went through my camera bag and had me empty my pockets. Can’t be too careful with wedding parties. LOL…

Beautiful Professional Portraits


The smiles never end at the studio. Every week I have amazing beautiful people coming to the studio to create a beautiful set of portraits and to save some of their special memories. I remember the first time I met Sarah…she came to the studio with a friend of her…she had brought her little one with her so while they were here I asked if I could do a few shots of the two of them. She enjoyed the shoot so much that she contacted the studio and set up a date for just her to come in and be photographed. Well as you can see the session was a complete success.




I would love for you to call the studio and lets set up a session for you to come in and create a beautiful collection of portraits of you. Time changes so quickly…now is the perfect time to celebrate who you and and save those special moments. Hey, do something special for yourself….you deserve it.
