Smoky Mountain Wedding, Cami and Alex

August 17, 2015

This Smoky Mountain wedding in Gatlinburg, Tennessee lives up to everything that a mountain destination wedding should be. Cami and Alex were married on a beautiful summer day on Cami’s family farm in Gatlinburg. It was an incredible place for an outdoor wedding! There were so many great things to photograph: a barn, a vineyard, old signs, bird houses, an antique car, and a ton of beautiful reception details.  The ceremony site had a beautiful view of the Smoky Mountains. Although they now live in Florida, Cami is from Gatlinburg, so it was the perfect way to get their families and friends together for a wedding. They had an amazing party with dancing, corn hole, and other activities on the farm. Here are just a few favorites from the day.

Naples Wedding Photographer, La Playa, Samantha and Paul

August 12, 2015

I’m so excited to share this destination wedding in Naples, Florida. The bride and groom, Samantha and Paul, are from Pittsburg and wanted to have a destination wedding at the beach with their families. There’s something about small wedding ceremonies that makes them so romantic and beautiful, and this ceremony was no exception! Their wedding was especially touching because Samantha gave the most thoughtful gifts to her loved ones – there were definitely tears! The other aspect I’ll remember most is Paul’s excitement and the way he looked at Samantha the entire day. Capturing these moments on film, and knowing that they’ll enjoy them for years to come, is what makes being a wedding photographer so special to me.

Getting to travel to so many amazing places for these destination weddings is pretty great too! I love photographing weddings in Southwest Florida because the beaches are huge and always have amazing light. It’s also great because my parents live on Marco Island and I go there all the time, so the area is like a second home for me. The beaches there are filled with great wedding venues, like LaPlaya Resort in Naples, where I met Samantha for her wedding. Samantha and Paul got ready at LaPlaya and then had their ceremony at a small park overlooking the beach, followed by dinner at Sea Salt in downtown Naples. It was the perfect day and it was truly an honor to be a part of this beautiful ceremony!

RT Lodge Wedding, Maryville, TN, Danielle and Matt

August 11, 2015

Danielle and Matt’s beautiful summer wedding at RT Lodge in Maryville, Tennessee was one of my favorites of the summer. Danielle and Matt were so nice and had such a great time. Danielle looked gorgeous in her Justin Alexander wedding dress from Twirl of Lexington. I love every wedding at RT Lodge because there are so many great spots take photos and the wedding professionals there are some of the best in the business! The flowers by Flowers and Such, hair and makeup by Bangs and Blush, and cake by Art of Cakes, were fantastic, and all of the vendors were wonderful to work with. Here are few favorites from this beautiful RT Lodge wedding.
