Nashville Wedding Photography ◦ HEATHER & BRIAN


Heather & Brian literally went across the world to find each other. Heather is an amazingly talented jazz singer who was the artist in residence at the Shangri-La Hotel in Shanghai when Brian visited the city for a business trip. They met while both eating alone in the hotel’s restaurant and as they say, the rest is history. There love traveled continents before eventually ending up back in the United States and they picked Brian’s parents’ home in Tennessee to say “I Do!” Heather & Brian are two of the most genuine people you will ever meet and it was such a joy to document their intense love for each other and their friends and family who came to Tennessee, from literally all over the world, to celebrate them. Enjoy this sneak peek of their special day with more sweet moments on our Facebook Page.


Such a lovely bride.


Of course, Heather & Brian’s sweet pups had to celebrate with them as well!


Love this moment right before Heather and her mom walk down the aisle.




I love how special and unique Heather & Brian’s rings are. Brian purchased Heather’s vintage ring while traveling in Belgium and they chose to honor the amazing marriage of Brian’s parents by wearing their original wedding bands.


Such joy!


Their reception was a celebration of their love of each other and their love of traveling the world together. From Chinese dragon dancers to postcards from around the world, their day was a fusion of Southern hospitality and cultures from around the world.


Congratulions, Heather & Brian! Your love and joy is infectious and we are so happy you found each other!

Nashville Wedding Photography ◦ Schermerhorn Symphony Center ◦ ALYSSA & DREW


“Matrimony is called holy, because this brave and fateful promise of a man and a woman, to love and honor and serve each other through thick and thin, looks beyond itself to more fateful promises still, and speaks mightily of what human life at its most human and most alive and most holy must always be. Every wedding is a dream, and every word that is spoken there means more than it says, and every gesture – the clasping of hands, the giving of rings – is rich with mystery. And so it is that we hope with every bride and groom, that the love they bear one another, and the joy they take in one another, may help them grow in love for this whole world where their final joy lies.”

—frederick beuchner


Alyssa & Drew saw Iowa, Wisconsin, Notre Dame and Harvard but Nashville brought them together so it was only fitting that they celebrate their love in the city that started it all. Alyssa & Drew’s day started off with close friends and family getting ready at the Symphony. There was hair, make-up, laughter, football and maybe a little gambling. They had so much fun and continued that trend throughout their whole day. Enjoy these sweet moments with more fun to be seen on our Facebook Page.

My Little Sister’s Wedding ◦ ALYSSA & RYAN


These photographs are extra dear to my heart. They are photographs from the day my little sister married her best friend. They are photographs of my family. Photographs of my sister laughing, my brothers looking so handsome in suits, my dad dancing with my mom, my sweet grandmas smiling, my brother’s girlfriends enjoying the day with us and my sweet husband working so hard behind the camera most of the day, with a few dance cameos, of course. These photographs remind me of why we do what we do. These photographs document part of my history and that of the people I love most and they remind me that what we do matters. That photographs on a wedding day are about so much more than just that day.

While Matt rarely gets credit for all the hard work he does day in and day out for our couples, on this day I was the maid of honor, so most of the credit has to go to him. Special thanks to Honor Heindl for her hard work & talents as well!

Since the blog post can’t go on forever; many, many more photos on our Facebook Page. And yes, that really is me on the dance floor. The entire night.



I love these girls. My brothers will either have to marry these two or we’ll just adopt them. Either way, they are part of our family.


Pretty sister.







I think I had years worth of documenting other people dancing pent up until that night. Then it was my turn!
