What it means to be captured: I love capturing natural giggles of little ones or when they're adventuring on their own. I will expect you to kiss your girlfriend on the forehead and hold hands with her. There's something about capturing the connection between people, instead of a connection between people and my camera. I feel like these images have so much more emotion and meaning than your family just smiling into my lens. As you will see in my galleries, not a lot of my photography is posed. Heirloom memories are my thing. I love snapping the shutter and knowing I have shot something genuine. I'm not a shoot & burn photographer. Your memories shouldn't sit on a disk or on Facebook for years. And choosing me as your photographer, I ensure that they won't! Storytelling sessions include a $150 premium product credit.
Now to the fun stuff: Feel free to bring along your Pinterest board inspiration. I would love to see what inspires you! Also, you can bribe me with sour worm candy.
Why I'm a little bit different: I know you've been shopping around. I'm probably the 5th website that you've came across, or your BFF from work recommended me! (Yay, thank you!) Let me tell you why your investment means so much more than a photo session. Your investment includes a $150 premium product credit, a complementary gift from me. These sessions are all-inclusive. What does this mean? I understand kids don't like their photos taken. My sessions aren't pressured & aren't rushed because memories take time. There isn't a time limit or restrictions on how many shots I choose to take. Your gallery will include at least 30 authentic, uniquely composed images. If we get more, I pinky promise not to keep them from you! Around 30 unique shots will be included in your online gallery & sessions typically last around 2-3 hours. We normally start a few hours before sundown, at a location of your choice in the East Tennessee area.
WHAT?! FREE PRODUCTS?! Yes! Your images shouldn't sit on a disk somewhere forever. That's not why I'm here. I may be old-fashioned, but your photography experience shouldn't just come with files. I have hand selected the best artisan, hand-made products for you to enjoy for generations. But...but...what about the CD?! Those are a thing of the past now. CDs are lost or damaged. Always. Your images will be placed in an online gallery for 4 weeks. You can download these full-sized images onto your laptop, but you can also use your credit towards an awesome metal flash drive with your photo on it! (And it has as super cool flippy thing where the USB comes out, they're really cool!) Photography is an investment. Years from now, you'll cherish these memories. Even if you do family photos once a year, the memories will last a lifetime.
Storytelling Sessions are priced at $350 and include a $150 premium product credit. Session includes digital downloads & print release for up to an 8x10 size. You can use your product credit towards a beautiful canvas, 5x5 mini album, matted prints, or traditional prints!
These sessions include family adventures, maternity portraits, newborn nursery sessions, & engagements.
On a budget? Trust me, I understand the coupon clippin' and bill budgetin'. Sometimes you spend too much at that dollar section at Target, but hey, I can't blame you. (Those notepads and cute things are so hard to pass up!) I offer affordable sessions so that you don't have to miss out on capturing memories during the year.
Mini sessions are priced at $125 and take place inside my studio in Knoxville and the surrounding outside locations.
Sessions last around 60 minutes & include 15+ unique images with digital download & print release. Additional products are also available for purchase!
The second that he sees you for the first time in your white dress, the glance of adoration from your grandmother when you walk down the aisle, and the tears running down your cheek as you dance with your father...these are some of the priceless memories that I may capture during your special day. Every wedding is different; they're filled with soulful moments and heartwarming smiles. I offer affordable wedding coverage that is paired with years of experience and a creative eye for detail & composition.
Okay so, how much?
Elopements or small weddings begin at $1800. All-inclusive coverage begins at $2500. All-inclusive weddings include EVERYTHING: From the engagement save-the-date invites to the hand-sewn, artisan leather albums that you'll treasure for years, I take the worry out of your photography planning. I include beautiful complementary, luxury products for you to cherish.
I have captured over 45 weddings in the past three years, so if you're looking for a creative, experienced photographer, look no further. My goal is to create captivating images that you can look back on years down the road, and see your day just as you remember it. Most weddings yield 150-200 uniquely composed images, everything from the little details of the rings to the sparkler send-off. I cull through the shots that didn't quite make the cut and deliver the best of the day's memories. Want to choose your own photos for me to edit? Just ask! I pinky promise that I won't keep any special moments from you, but you can see what I did capture.
