This past weekend, I hit the road once again! Destination: Franklin, TN for a photography workshop with Jeremy Cowart. It has been one crazy year! Since May, I’ve logged over 19,000 (yes you read that right) miles on my car, taken so many photos I cannot even count them on one hard drive and I don’t think I’ve pulled this many all nighters since college! In other words, I had a fever and the only prescription was more cowbell! Enter, Jeremy Cowart’s workshop. The workshop was super laid back which gave me a chance to slow down for a weekend and really evaluate who I am as a photographer and which direction I want to take my photography business. It was a fantastic way to wrap up 2009! Jeremy and the other 20+ photographers in attendance, thank you for sharing your experiences with me. You all definitely help inspire and re-energize me!

Two weeks ago Carrie and Landon were married at the Graystone Presbyterian church near downtown Knoxville. When I met these two earlier this year in Savannah, I instantly fell in love with them. They are fun, easy going and completely in love. It poured during their entire engagement session (which can be seen here) and I thought we were headed for more of the same on their wedding day. Fortunately, mother nature smiled upon these two and gave them blue skies for most of the day. Carrie & Landon I have thoroughly enjoyed the time that I have spent with the two of you! I wish you both a lifetime of laughter and love… I am 100 percent sure there will never be a shortage of either in your house. Enjoy and Congratulations!!
Carrie has the biggest, most infectious smile. I love this shot!
One of the junior bridesmaids kept putting Carrie’s shoes on, which was very cute!
Carrie and Landon decided to do a first site, which allowed me to grab a few quick pictures of just the 2 of them alone. Please notice the stained glass window behind them, see no evil, hear no evil, speak kiss no evil. I didn’t realize this until after I had already taken this shot. haha
After a quick bubble send off, we all headed over to Calhoun’s on the river for a night of dinner, dancing and ALOT of singing!
We headed over to Volunteer Landing for a few quick shots while the rest of the wedding guests arrived at the reception. I LOVE this tree and this picture.
This was the last shot I took with my 16mm before sending it crashing to the ground. Luckily, Canon was able to fix it:)
Knoxville Track Club!
Good Old Rocky Top, WHEW! Rocky top Tennessee!!
Cotton Eyed Joe!
Carrie’s dad is not only one heck of a dancer but he sings too! The picture below is Carrie’s reaction to her dad singing to her!
After her dad was done singing, the guys serenaded Carrie. You’ve lost that loving feeling!
I know who made the moonshine too, back where I come from…

A few weeks ago, John, Erin, Ella, and Miles stopped over to my house for a quick family session by the old barn on the property behind my house. Thanks for letting me use it again Farmer Sam:) Here are a few of my favorites from the session. Enjoy!
Ella is quite a ham!!
And Miles is super sweet.

I have a to do list a mile long and other things to blog but I couldn’t help but post these pictures from our trip to the Fruit and Berry patch today.
This past weekend, Stephanie & Kevin were married in a small and intimate ceremony at Maple Grove Inn in Knoxville, TN. The weather was absolutely beautiful and the day went off without a hitch! Stephanie wanted a very simple and laid back wedding and this venue was the perfect location for such a wedding! The Inn itself is old and full of character and the grounds surrounding the Inn are absolutely beautiful… especially the extra long driveway! I hope all of you enjoy looking at these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them! Stephanie & Kevin thank you for allowing me to share such a special day with you. I had such a great time meeting your friends and family. Best wishes for a long and happy life together!
After the ceremony we headed out to the driveway for some fun shots! This driveway is awesome!
After playing outside, we headed inside for a delicious sit down dinner.
My friend Katie asked me to take a few pictures of her since she never had senior portraits taken while she was in high school…well or ever for that matter. So these pictures are her post college senior pictures! Early Saturday morning we headed over to Headrick’s garage in Maryville, then made our way to downtown Maryville and we finished up at Katie’s house…she wanted a few pictures with her lovable pooch Toby! I had such a great time taking Katie’s pictures! The weather was perfect and Katie is always fun to hang out with…she has such a great sense of humor! Thank you Katie for trusting me when I said the truck recycling facility would be a great place to take pictures!!! The owner said that we were not allowed to call it a junkyard, so instead he called it a truck recycling facility. Ha!
I love this one!
Last week I photographed two very fun families…in case you can’t tell from the pictures! Here is a quick sneak peek…more to come!
I love when you ask a family to jump and they say, “How High?”.
