Kevin & Ann’s Engagement Session . Nashville Wedding Photographer
Though I’d spoken with Ann on the phone several times as we booked her wedding, the first time I was actually able to meet Ann and Kevin was in Nashville, TN for their engagement session. Currently Kevin and Ann are living hundreds of miles apart in two different states. Nashville was where they met for the first time and somewhere sortof in between where they live now so it seemed the perfect place to photograph their engagement session.
At first glance I could see how close and genuine their relationship is. I could tell how much they miss each other from spending so much time apart. I could see that they were perfectly matched for each other. Their relationship is clearly romantic, sweet, caring, and (most importantly) fun. We started the session at Centennial park in Nashville where the gigantic replica of the Parthenon is located. It seems a little out of place in the middle of Tennessee but it’s beautiful to photograph nonetheless. The park was literally covered in people taking photos for prom, wedding parties, and other people taking photos of flowers and such. We ended the session in downtown Nashville on the strip and on the bridge that’s a like a mini-replica of the pedestrian bridge here in Chattanooga with a gorgeous view of the Nashville skyline.
Many thanks to Amanda Williams and Tessa Rice for making the trip to Nashville with me and helping to haul lights and camera gear around. We had an incredibly fun time. Also thanks to Kevin, for buying us all an amazing Japanese dinner after the session and for putting up with four crazy women all evening. Not to forget Ann, thank you for trusting me and having enough faith in me to choose me to photograph your wedding without ever having met me. We’re going to have an incredible time documenting your ultimate love story next month!

Ann, these pictures are gorgeous. I can tell just from the pictures that you two truly care about one another. The city light pictures as well as the last bridge picture were my favorite. Wow gal! You can kick your leg up pretty high. 😉 Congratulations on getting married. Wish I could be there to see you as a beautiful bride. I am truly going to miss you next year. Do you have to become a northerner or can I kidnap you?
