Love Birds: Ashley & Nate {Knoxville Couples Photography}

I love love. Especially when it’s as evident as it was with Ashley and Nate. I’ve known Ashley and her husband Nate for quite a while and I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph them (and their pooch, Ellie) earlier this year. It was such a blast! They are so cute together and spent the entire session laughing and just being adorable. They were up for anything and we were able to capture a gorgeous sunset shot right at the end of their session. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful couple. 🙂


Ashley: Lady in the Water session {Knoxville Photography}

This session… Where to begin?! For the past year, I’ve had this concept of a beautiful, long-haired girl in a flowing dress coming out of the water. I had the model picked out for about as long as I had the concept! My lovely friend, Ashley. She is absolutely gorgeous and was just amazing. She was up for anything during this long shoot and the water was COLD. Bless her heart, she was freezing by the time we were done. But she was a total sport about it. I couldn’t have asked for a better day or better model for this session. Lots of times, I get asked to do specific things for a client. It’s very rare that I get to shoot “just for me”. This shoot was definitely just for me. In a way, it’s been a dream come true. To see a year of planning FINALLY come to fruition, is a bit surreal. The few images I’ve posted on Facebook have already received a lot of love and I couldn’t be more flattered. I hope you all enjoy looking through this session as much as I loved shooting it. Shooting this session truly was a labor of love for me and reminds me why I am so passionate about this amazing thing called photography. Much love, R


Jaida & Her Guys

This session has been in the works for what seems like FOREVER! But due to all the rain we had this spring and other things that kept coming up, we kept having to reschedule. I am so glad we were finally able to make it work and hold this session at beautiful Fort Loudon in Vonore (I just love it there this time of year!) This family was so much fun and little Easton was an absolute cutie pie!
