Molly + Sam // A Nashville Anniversary Session


Oh man. I love these two. When Molly emailed to ask if I’d be up for shooting a first anniversary session for her and her husband Sam (seriously, do they not also have the cutest names?!) last fall, I was all over it. It’s always an honor to photograph fellow photographers, and this was no exception. We spent a sunny afternoon strolling through East Nashville, of course making a pit stop at Jeni’s Ice Cream, where I was finally able to try the biscuits and peach jam flavor. (And yes, it rocked my world.)

Molly and Sam, you two win Adorable Couple of the Year. Loved revisiting these photos and our time together! Enjoy!

Ginger + Zack // An Ireland, Harry Potter, and Autumn-Inspired Nashville Wedding

ireland travel inspired wedding invitation

If you’ve spent any amount of time on my blog, Ginger and Zack’s faces are probably starting to look pretty familiar. They modeled for my St. Patrick’s Day styled shoot last year, and several months later, we did a real engagement session complete with Harry Potter costumes and a lot of rain. So needless to say, when they asked my BFF Kelly and I to tag team their wedding in Nashville this past October, we were ALL IN. (We also got to work with our dear friend Kelly Dellinger, who was their wedding planner!)

One thing I love about these two is how they have this very specific style as a couple. You immediately notice that they’re both redheads, but once you get to talking to them, you realize how perfect that is, because they share a strong love for Ireland (and I believe they both have Irish heritage?) as well as all things green. They both adore Harry Potter and Indiana Jones and woodland creatures (especially foxes), so the fall season and color palette somehow just kind of suits them perfectly. A ceremony at the Hogwarts-esque Scarritt Bennett Center followed by a reception in the perfectly industrial Houston Station made perfect sense for a Ginger-and-Zack wedding. Kelly and I spent the day drooling over all the details, from the gorgeous fall-inspired florals by Rosemary and Finch to the travel-inspired decor to the cake topper with Zack’s family crest on it…. which, perfectly enough, features a swan, and Ginger’s maiden name is Swan. *swoon*

I could honestly go on and on and on, but then I might never hit publish on the post, and these photos just need to be shared! :) You can also click here to see Kelly’s perspective and read some thoughts from Ginger about the day. Thank you so much to the most amazing redheaded couple we know for asking us to be apart of your day! We had the best time!

Lorraine - That might be my favorite shot ever of a groom seeing his bride for the first time (okay okay, besides my own!). What a great wedding! Those green bottles are to die for, too!

Kelsey Tae - I love the shot of him seeing her walking down the aisle! Wow. So sweet! I’m also a huge fan of the Marauder’s Map programs – how clever!!!

Debbie - I have to agree with Lorraine – the look on the groom’s face is priceless! It looks like he he is saying a great big WOW!!!!! OR OOOOHHHH!!!!! Maybe both :) The photo where they are standing in the doorway of the church stealing a moment of privacy is also great! What a fun, unique and beautiful wedding! Super photography ladies!!!!!!

katie - What a fantastic wedding! So many amazing pictures of their day, but I have to say the shot of the minister and the groom might be my favorite because I think I love the minister’s expression almost as much as Zack’s!

Meredith - Morgan, you are too cool for school. These are amazing! LOVE the getting ready shots and the bridal portraits of her inside! Such gorgeous light!

House Progress! // Or, What I’ve Been Doing the Past Two Months

During the off-season for weddings, things slowed down enough for me work-wise to begin tackling some of our major home renovations. For the past couple of months, that has meant a ton of painting (sooo much painting), swapping light fixtures, constructing the built-in bookshelves in the main living area, and so much more. I took the opportunity to take some progress photos after a party we recently hosted at our home, when things were relatively clean and I had gorgeous leftover flowers from Laura McCarty lying around, so please enjoy a photo update!

Edited to add: skip forward to this post to see more in-depth explanations, before photos, and even MORE progress made after these initial changes. :)
