Latosha’s Allandale Mansion Bridal Session

A bridal session is such a great way to prepare for your wedding day. Consider it a dress rehearsal and a chance to see what works and does not work. It is also another opportunity to wear your beautiful dress, and what bride doesn’t love that?

I loved going to beautiful Allandale Mansion for Latosha’s bridals because it is such a classic place to shoot this important session. Inside the mansion and outside on the grounds give a wide variety of choices for portraits. Her mother and matron of honor were there to fluff her gown and veil plus get a first look of all the gorgeousness.

Latosha asked me to hold off on sending the link to the final images to her mom because she gifted a canvas from the session to her on her wedding day. It was an emotional moment! We also took a similar photograph of one of the pictures of her groom, Rafael, on their wedding day so she can have a canvas grouping of the two.

I am looking forward to editing the wedding and sharing with everyone in a few weeks! It was amazing! ♥

Logan & Carrigan: Elopement 1st Look

This session was originally supposed to be an engagement session for Carrigan and Logan’s September wedding but I was asked the night before if I would do their first look for them before they traveled to Gatlinburg to be married. We decided to meet early morning in Kingsport at The Greenbelt before the couple went to City Hall to get their marriage license. There were tears and smiles and lots of joy as this couple began their married life together.

I’m so happy that I was there to capture these memories. Even better, there’s still going to be a wedding celebration in September. I can’t wait to be a part of it! ♥
