My name is Dan Watson and I am a photographer in Nashville, Tennessee. I am also a destination wedding photographer and photograph weddings throughout the United States and internationally. In addition to Nashville, I have photographed Tennessee weddings in Knoxville, Chattanooga, Johnson City, Maryville, Farragut, Townsend, Gatlinburg, Walland, Sevierville, and Franklin. In Nashville, some of my favorite wedding venues include Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, Loveless Barn, Belle Meade Plantation, Arrington Vineyards, Mint Springs Farm, The Cordell, Houston Station, The Cannery, Riverwood Mansion, Musicians Hall of Fame, OZ Arts Nashville, The Nashville City Club, and Carnton Plantation. This is a partial list of some of the best wedding venues in Nashville, but it is by no means complete. There are many beautiful wedding venues in the Nashville area and I would be happy to work with you as your wedding photographer at any of these amazing Nashville wedding venues.
Before moving to Nashville recently, I was a wedding photographer in Knoxville, Tennessee. Because of that, I still travel to Knoxville regularly to photograph weddings. Some of my favorite wedding venues in Knoxville include, Cherokee Country Club, Club LeConte, The Standard, Knoxville Museum of Art, Southern Railway Station, Gettysvue Country Club, Fox Den Country Club, The Bleak House, The Foundry, Dara's Garden, Hunter Valley Farm, Maple Grove Inn, and Crescent Bend. These are just some of the best wedding venues in Knoxville. There are many more wonderful locations for weddings including private houses, farms, and lake properties. I would love to be your wedding in Knoxville, so please let me know if I can help in any way.
Living so close to the mountains, I have photographed many weddings in the Smoky Mountains. There are several small towns and cities scattered through the mountains of East Tennessee with fantastic wedding venues. I have photographed weddings at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee, as well as RT Lodge in Maryville, Tennessee. While those are two my favorites in this area, there are many other wonderful wedding venues including Castleton Farms, Whitestone Country Inn, Pleasant Hill Vineyards, and many others. Please contact me to photograph your Smoky Mountain wedding.
As a destination wedding photographer working in Southwest Florida I have photographed weddings in Naples, Florida, at resorts like The Naples Grand, formerly The Waldorf Astoria, as well LaPlaya Resort on Naples Beach. I have also been the wedding photographer for weddings at Marco Ocean Beach Resort on Marco Island, Florida. I love photographing beach weddings in Naples and Marco Island. The huge beaches and luxury resorts are perfect wedding venues for brides and grooms that want amazing wedding photography! Other resorts I've been the wedding photographer at include The Sanctuary Golf Club on Sanibel Island. Weddings on Sanibel are great because it is a uniquely untouched and wild island on Florida's Gulf Coast. I spend a lot of time photographing weddings in Southwest Florida because my parents live there and I enjoy visiting them and traveling to the beach! So if you are planning a destination wedding in Southwest Florida, please consider me as your wedding photographer.
As a photographer in Nashville, I also specialize in portrait photography. I frequently work with portrait clients that are seeking natural, modern, and clean professional photographs of families, individuals, and professionals. The portrait photography services I provide in the Nashville area include family portraits, executive portraits, senior portraits, headshots, corporate portraits, commercial portraits, editorial portraits, children's portraiture, engagement photos, environmental portraits, and newborn photography. When photographing families and children, the photo shoot takes place at the location of the clients' choosing. Or, I can choose from some of the best locations for family photos in Nashville. Some of my favorite locations are Percy Warner Park, Edwin Warner Park, Centennial Park, Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, and Radnor Lake State Nature Area.
