Natalie + Roydell Wedding

Man, Natalie + Roydell had a beautiful wedding at The Bell Tower that was such a killer time! Both Natalie + Roydell work in education here in Nashville. Roydell also had a career playing in the NFL and he gets to use that experience to enhance his athletic leadership. Natalie's sister beautifully described their relationship as Roydell was the calm to Natalie's storm. Roydell is quiet, reserved, but full of smiles and warmth. Natalie buzzes with energy and is quick to laugh, and to see them together is to see two people complete.

It was such a joy to be able to capture such an epic day of two people very much in love, surrounded by friends and family celebrating them the entire evening. We hope you enjoy this preview of Natalie + Roydell’s wedding photos as much as we do 😊 Cheers to the new couple!

Cally + Tommy Wedding

Last weekend we headed out to capture Cally + Tommy’s wedding here in Nashville. Cally’s been social media friends with us the entire time leading up to her wedding and I feel like we were constantly giving each other virtual fist bumps 👊. When we met up for their final consult at Fido’s, it was super relaxed and filled with laughs as we talked about pets, our travel adventures, their amazing post wedding plans for the next 6 months and all the crazy transitions that are happening for Cally + Tommy all at once! It was a really wonderful time and I knew immediately that the wedding day was going to be awesome.

Not to mention our favorite food truck, Califarmia, was catering! And to top it all off we knew all of the logistics and details were going on point as well with Details’ fabulous ladies, Candace and Ninfa, handling the day of coordination. We were surrounded by friends and fun people all day, and it was glorious.

The ceremony and formals were shot at Christ the King Church and the reception was held at the lovely boutique venue, Ruby. We couldn’t of asked for a better time, as we hung out with gorgeous and fun people on a beautiful day! Cally + Tommy + Crew were awesome to hang out with!

We hope you enjoy this wedding photo preview of Cally + Tommy’s super chill Nashville wedding…

Emily + Mike Wedding

We love shooting weddings, but when we get to capture the union of our friends it adds a little extra joy for us! We’ve known Emily + Mike for a long time and it’s been a cool experience to see them go from single, to dating, to in love, to married! Last week their wedding at Southall Meadows in Franklin was gorgeous.

The weather was perfect and the landscape was a picturesque backdrop for Emily + Mike’s elegant, yet rustic wedding. We hope you enjoy this wedding preview that highlights Emily + Mike’s love and how much their friends and family love them as well!

Cheers to Emily + Mike!

Nicole + Chris Wedding

Last Sunday we had the privilege to capture Nicole + Chris’ downtown Nashville wedding!. They held their wedding at the gorgeous Bell Tower and we took a trolley through town for us to take formals. We had an exciting time racing around so we could beat the rain!

Nicole + Chris have been one of our most fun, and most relaxed couples we've had the privilege to capture this year, and we cannot express how much we laughed and enjoyed our time with them. They're wedding party was top notch, their families were supportive and loving, and all of their guests were so ready to celebrate the union between Nicole + Chris.

One of the most emotional moments of the day was Nicole's father, who has been battling Alzheimer's for almost a decade. Nicole and her family were very intentional about making sure we captured moments of them together with their family’s patriarch. To see the way Nicole and her family supported one another, but also, loved, included, and cared for her father was one of the more impactful relationships we've experienced shooting. Several of us were brought to tears on several occasions. It was a true honor to capture these priceless moments that they can forever look back on.

In the end, it was a wonderful celebration of two people very much in love and that was refreshing to experience. We hope you enjoy this preview of Nicole + Chris’ Nashville Wedding.
