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.




Creative Photography…..Anime at the studio.

I know this is a bit different but I just love the creative side of life. She came to the studio with her passion for anime, fantastic outfits, and the stories of wonder and intrigue that they tell. It was so cool to watch the transformation as she would move from one charter to the next. We would photograph one person then she’d go to the changing room, redo her make up and change costumes and emerge and entire different person. But this change was not in just the way she looked but also in the way she walked, talked and move about the studio. I shoot in amazement as I watched the different transformations take place.

Wedding, Maternity, Family, Beauty photography at its very best; created by a professional photographer who care about you and your memories.

Maternity Session with Elizabeth and Andrew…Knoxville’s best Maternity Sessions

I met Elizabeth several years ago before she met Andrew…but I’ve got to say these two are just the prefect couple. I really enjoyed watching them interact with each other and hear about their dreams and plans for the coming year. One of the things that really impressed me was their passion to follow their dreams and make those dreams come true. They both love boating, water, and diving…..I wish you could hear their great stories from the first years of their relationship.

Over the coming weeks as this little one is grown they will be coming back to the studio every 6 weeks or so for portraits….this way they will have an amazing record of the growth of her tummy and beautiful images to show to this little one on that day when they are asked about this time in their lives.

Portrait Sessions are a blast at Expressions

Kelci is just a blast to work with. She told me when she came she had not had photos made before because she just didn’t feel comfortalbe in front of the camera….OMG…from the first click to the last she was just a bundle of smiles and laughter.
