cassey + ryan | lookout mountain wedding

I love Lookout Mountain. It’s like a fairytale dreamland. Little mountain cottages, kids walking to school, a breathtaking view of not only Chattanooga below, but 6 other states! I was so excited to hear that Cassey and Ryan wanted me to photograph their wedding at Grandview! It’s an insanely beautiful setting for such a special celebration. I personally love outdoor ceremonies and receptions anyways and that view was just the icing on the cake! Here are some favorites from Cassey… Read more »

The flowers were some of the prettiest I have EVER seen, so unique! Their ceremony was held in the Smith Family Chapel (which happens to be where Jessica Simpson… Read more »

Aww, I just love these two. In 2009 I photographed the groom’s brother’s wedding (view Katie & Brett’s sweet slideshow here) and just fell in love with their entire family. This past fall, I got to spend an afternoon getting to know sweet Ellen; she and Ryne are just a perfect pair. It’s sincerely an honor to play such a big role in a couple’s most special day ever, to capture these brief moments to save forever. Thinking about Ellen… Read more »
