Tennessee Mountain Winter Engagement | Megan + Jake

Tennessee Mountain Winter Engagement

When Megan arrived for engagement photos wearing a long red tulle skirt and a white lace top I felt like she’d been reading my mind! Like she’d seen all my saved pinterest boards, and like we had the same exact vision for this session!

We had great weather for January. I always end up worrying a little too much in advance especially in the winter.   Worrying about the weather doesn’t fix anything! I really should stop looking at forecasts until the morning of.  As it turned out, we had beautiful light and there was very little traffic! (you’ll see why that’s an important factor as you scroll all the way down through the photos).

When Megan and Jake were first spending time together with mutual friends.  Jake was the guy who picked her up and carried her to her car in a rainstorm when her shoes were just not made for crossing live rivers in parking lots.  You might say he swept her off her feet right then and there.


Winter in Tennessee is pretty nice!!

Megan ordered her tulle skirt online and had it within a few days with rush shipping. I’m so glad she did, it made this outfit perfect!!!

This photo was completely a bonus. It’s something I’ve thought about every time I drive through a tunnel anywhere! A few years ago I tried to do this very shot but my gear failed me and I had to take no for an answer. But not this time! We tested everything out first. Then waited for traffic to clear and were in and out in minutes.

Nerdy camera stuff for those who are curious to know how we got the shot: We use car headlights to see what we were doing and to be able to gain focus.One flash, off camera, behind them and one on camera.

No humans were harmed making this photo.
