Savannah |Johnson City Bridal Photos

Savannah’s family was one of the first I met when I first moved to Kingsport 12 years ago.  She was little.  And darling.  She is all grown up now and still darling!  Her life is crazy busy  and it was hard to find a time to meet for photos.  But we finally picked a date on a weeknight.  Both she and her mom are in education at Kingsport City Schools (say hi if you see them!) and had worked a looong day.  So they were naturally running behind.  I was really worried about having a frazzled bride step out of the car and worried about the sun setting before we were finished.  But Savannah totally brought it and was sure to let me know that she watches “America’s Next Top Model.”  All the stress of doing her own hair and makeup for the photos melted away and made for some really fun conversation. She was such a beautiful bride!  Just a few days after these photos were taken, she traveled to St. George, Utah to be married.  The next week they returned to Tennessee and had a really fun party at the International Storytelling Center in Jonesborough.  2016-12-14_00142016-12-14_00152016-12-14_00162016-12-14_00182016-12-14_00192016-12-14_00202016-12-14_00212016-12-14_00222016-12-14_00232016-12-14_00242016-12-14_00252016-12-14_00262016-12-14_00272016-12-14_0028

Katie | Allandale Mansion Bride

Weddings at Allandale mansion are quickly becoming a favorite of mine.   Katie grew up here and went to Dobyns Bennett High School.  She met her fiancee at college in Georgia and is now living in Texas.  There nothing quite like coming home and bringing the love of your life with you.  Because she doesn’t live in Kingsport anymore, we did her bridal photos just a few days before her wedding.  The weather was perfect and she looked so stunningly beautiful!  Isn’t her dress amazing?  She said that she saw it in the store window and knew it was the one.  The ladies at Posh Salon did her hair and makeup and it really complimented her look.  Aunt Willie’s Wildflowers did the bouquet.  She had asked for just a small one, but was told, “I don’t really do small.”  Katie’s mother and her aunt were able to be there with us and it was so great getting to know them a little better before the wedding.  2016-12-14_00012016-12-14_00022016-12-14_00032016-12-14_00042016-12-14_00052016-12-14_00062016-12-14_00072016-12-14_00082016-12-14_00092016-12-14_00112016-12-14_00122016-12-14_0013
