Soon to be Mr. & Mrs. – Allison & Zach – Nashville Engagement Session

The Branding Experience



I'm a NC based brand photographer (but I love to travel for work+fun). Joanna Gaines is my spirit animal, and in another life (maybe this one) I'd probably move to Waco, TX!

I'm always down to try a new local coffee shop (even better if they have lavender latte), and working on mastering the perfect at home brew recipe. 


Where do I even start? I guess I should share how I had the pleasure of meeting these sweet people! Last week, I visited Nashville, Tennessee for the first time!! I had such an amazing time exploring a new city, being refreshed by taking a day or two off from the crazy wedding season & catching up with some friends!

But before I had ventured to Nashville, I reached out to some photography groups to see if I knew anyone that would be interested in doing a session while I was in town! A few hours later, I get an Instagram DM from sweet Lauren Carnes (do yourself a favor and check her out, she’s a very talented photographer, educator, momma & communications coach!!!) sharing a list of four or five contacts she has in Nashville!! And well, after reaching out to a few, Allison & Zach ended up being my lucky couple who I got to photograph!

Allison & Zach got engaged in April and they are now planning their wedding for June 2020! So the fact that I was in town now was perfect & we had so much fun doing their engagement session all around Downtown Nashville! We started in the Gulch Neighborhood, ventured to a parking deck, & ended up at Jeni’s for ice cream and let me tell ya …. that was the BEST ice cream hands down!! It was a perfect way to end a wonderful session!
