Wedding Day Timeline
This is probably one of the hardest parts for couples, figuring out how much time is needed to get great photos of each part of the day. I have made a wedding day timeline resource for you!
Why choose a First Look
Here in the south, especially Knoxville areas it is very popular to do all the formal photos before the ceremony and go straight to the cocktail hour and reception to see all the guests. How Does it work?
I encourage an engagement session as an opportunity to get comfortable in front of my camera. This ensures, you are not meeting a stranger on the wedding day. And added bonus, you get engagement engagement photo!
