I always love getting to work with people I know, well in all honesty I enjoy working with everyone. However, when I am presented with a challenge, like taking someone I know rather well, and making their “look” change, I jump at the chance. My good friend Abby Kelly was in need of updating her head shots to be able to show a much wider range than “the girl next door” type casting she was constantly getting. So she approached me with some images that were all over the board and I loved it. We took it from natural light to drastic studio lighting that transformed her into a smoking siren. I was so happy with the way the images came out.
A recent trend in the wedding world is known as a shoot called “Trash the Dress.” This is something we have been wanting to do and Tarryn had a great idea to do a “Southern Style: Trash the Dress.” So we figured what a better bride to team up with than Caroline Bryan, wife to country singer Luke Bryan.
They both were born and raised in the south and live and breath southern culture. We decided to create a trash the dress that involved fishing, Fireball Whiskey, Budweiser, ribs and ranch dressing. So Caroline caught up with her two close girl pals, Tiffany Fallon and Carah Owen. We had such a fun day with all the ladies at Luke and Caroline’s farm in TN. Tarryn and I both got to experience our first turn behind the wheel of an ATV and took some shots of Fireball to celebrate the day with such a fun group of people. Without further ado… here is our spin on a Southern Trash the Dress with a few behind the scenes shots from the day. We hope you enjoy looking through these as we did creating them!
On June 1, 2013 I had the pleasure of photographing Andrea & Dustin’ wedding. It’s actually a fun back story on how I met the couple. When I first moved to Nashville from Los Angeles, I moved into an apartment complex in Brentwood, TN called The Landings. They had great pool parties in the summer time, which is subsequently, where I met Andrea. It was Memorial Day weekend and the place was packed. We were all enjoying the festivities and through mutual friends I started chatting with Andrea and we started talking about life and all that fun stuff and the topic of jobs came up and I told her I was a photographer.She was so sweet and we all ended up parting ways at the end of the day. I later learned that very same day Andrea met her future husband, Dustin.
Turns out pool parties can be more than just duck floaties and Budweiser. Fast forward till earlier this year and we get a call from Andrea asking if we could meet to discuss photographing her wedding! Needless to say I was honored. These two people were made for each other. It was apparent by all of the emotions in the room that day. I have an amazing job that allows me to capture moments in time that can be looked back on years from now. Dustin and Andrea will have millions of more moments but here are some of my favorites from the day of these two…
