Maricruz & Tyler | Kingsport Wedding Reception

Tyler and Maricruz were married in South Carolina and then celebrated that marriage with friends and family here in Kingsport.  They are so sweet together and I love the way she looks at him!  Her aunt and cousin drove all the way from Utah to be here for them and they were so glad they could come.  Her bouquet came from Mexico and it…

Mark and Katie | Allandale mansion wedding

Mark and Katie had such an amazing wedding at Kingsport’s Allandale Mansion in October.  They are both political science professors in Texas, but returned to Katie’s hometown for their wedding ceremony.  Guests came from all over the country to celebrate them.  When I asked Katie’s mom what she liked most about Mark, she told me that he adores Katie.  And that is sooooo true….

Taylor and Savannah | Kingsport Wedding Photographer

Taylor and Savannah met while going to school in Idaho.  Someone was looking for a math tutor and another someone was eager and willing to help. I got to hear ALL about it at the wedding reception when Savannah’s uncle gave a really sweet little speech.  Because Taylor is from Utah, they were married then and then had a reception at the International Storytelling…

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…

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…

Jensen/Hubmann DC wedding | Kingsport wedding photographer

Kelsey & Corbin were married for time and all eternity in the Washington DC temple.  Kelsey grew up here in Kingsport and Corbin is from South Dakota.  They met while at school in Idaho and knew almost right away that they were meant for each other!  She just gushed about him while describing him to me.  Both of their families traveled a really long…

Terry wedding {St. Lukes United Methodist Church} | Kingsport wedding photographer

Amy first contacted me in July, just a few months before her wedding, to see if I was available for her very small wedding in October.  Thankfully, I did have the day available!  After asking for a little more information about her wedding, she told me that she and her fiancee really would have been happy to elope, but decided that they wanted to…

Lindsy & Austin {@The Charles} | Kingsport wedding photographer

You may remember Lindsy and Austin from their awesome snowy engagement session (that you can see here).  Now you get to see their awesome wedding at The Charles in Johnson City!  When Lindsy first told me that she was having a Disney princess themed wedding, I’ve got to admit that I didn’t quite catch her vision.  But then she showed me her pinterest board and…

Mike and Leigh Ann – Allandale Mansion | Kingsport Wedding Photographer

If you have been following me for a while, you know that I used to teach Spanish at University School in Johnson City. One of the first weddings I photographed was for a former student of mine. You can see her photos here. When Leigh Ann and I first met, she told me that Marie AND Jessica (another former student) were going to be…

Marceau / Clark wedding | Kingsport wedding photographer

Nearly two years ago, one of my clients bought a newborn session for his sister in Knoxville. She has since become my self-proclaimed groupie and one of my greatest supporters. She has hired me to do extended family photos and has referred me to many people. This is her niece and her new husband! They were married in the LDS Nashville temple the morning…

The Fagerburg’s 50th wedding anniversary | Kingsport photographer

One day at church, Maureen came and sat next to me exclaiming, “Jennie. I need pictures.” “Okay, what kind of pictures do you need?” She proceeded to tell me that it was her 50th wedding anniversary and that it was ugly outside, so we would need to do them inside. So we did! They were so much fun and so much in love. They’ve…

Busy season!

Hello, there! Thanks for checking out my wedding photography portfolio. I know it’s looking a little thin. I have been so busy photographing this year that I haven’t had a chance to update my blog. I promise that I have photographed more than just a handful of weddings! I’m much better at updating my facebook page (http://facebook.com/denimandlacephotography) so be sure to check that out….

Lindsy & Austin | Kingsport engagement photographer

One of the first things Lindsy told me when she met with me about photographing her wedding is that she can’t do Spring photos because of her allergies. She was completely content to do a very cold February photo shoot. I have to admit that I was slightly concerned because dead trees don’t exactly convey romance. But, as time got nearer to the date…

Ben and Beth are married! | Kingsport wedding photographer

Ben and Beth had a gorgeous backyard wedding in Fair acres here in Kingsport. His grandparents were gracious enough to host the wedding at their home, which was extra special because several family weddings were held in the same spot. This ceremony came together beautifully as the bride’s mother had some amazing connections. Some of her best friends just happen to be in the…

Carden Motorcycle Wedding | Kingsport Wedding Photographer

This fun couple rode their motorcycles all the way from Indiana for their wedding at Carden’s Bluff. The groom’s last name is Carden and he had stopped at this campsite with his girls when they were little. They brought two of their greatest friends with them and had one of the most simple ceremonies that I think I will ever photograph!
