A capture of a mother viewing her daughter's wedding album is so easy for me and to give these images to this mother as a big ole thank you, just fills my heart up with joy...

A testimonial written by this mother before she left the studio with her daughter's beautiful album...

"I really cannot remember how I found Ann, but I am truly thankful that I did. She was a pleasure to work with and made us feel comfortable from the moment we met. We are so pleased with the photos she took at my daughter's wedding and the albums. I also had her do a canvas portrait from one of the photos and it is absolutely gorgeous!
I cannot thank Ann enough for making Ashley's day so much fun and giving us such special memories."
Written by Sharon Pratt, mother of the bride January 20, 2018

Thank you Mrs. Sharon Pratt for your kind words... I hope to work with you again very soon!

I couldn't be happier with our pictures. I can't wait to work with her again. I highly recommend anyone to work with Ann whatever the occasion."  Kaitlyn and CJ Jones

The dogs are what makes the story...Right!! I was fortunate enough to photograph a family because their two sons were in town from Boston for the holidays... I have come to know this family through my cross fit community and have grown to love them even more because I met their sons and their two family pets, Betty Lou and Oscar! I have photographed many people, many pets, many events...But when a family invites me into their home to photograph their family, pets included, it's super duper special to me! I could've taken the dogs home with me...They just fill my heart full! :)
Here's a sneak peek at what I got to do yesterday with this amazing family...








Thank you all for inviting me into your home and sharing your family with me!

Who's one of the best in the industry... One of my stunning wedding clients put it down in black and white a few days ago. She and her brand new husband were here for their viewing... Once we looked at all images, their storybook wedding album and album cover options, I asked for this....

"We could not be happier with all of the wonderful pictures Ann captured of our special day. From the moment I met her, I felt at ease. Which for someone who does not like being photographed, this was very important. She was there from the beginning to the end taking pictures of every aspect of our day. The pictures are beautiful and all of her hard work shows through in her pictures. I could not say anything but great things about Ann and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a wedding (or any special occasion) photographer. Thank you for our beautiful images! They will treasured forever!” Ashley and Brett Boring – Hired for Wedding on September 23rd, 2017

Thank you Ashley!!! I love every single word!!! You and Brett are the best!!!

I will have to say this was one of the all around perfect weddings I've attended in a while.. The bride was absolutely stunning, as are all of my brides... But the way these two people fit one another is perfection. From the moment I met Kaitlyn and even the very moment I met CJ they both were a perfect fit for me and what I do for my wedding clients. The wedding adorned the serenity of being on a family farm (Grace Valley Farms), with all of their family and friends by their side for support, wishing them the happiest life together and just spending a whole day with the best family and framily (as mother and bride said) around! I have heard framily used before but not quite seen it in it's true form! Congratulations to Kaitlyn and CJ on their life and marriage.... I wish you both all that this life together will offer....













































Happy Honeymooning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ashley and Brett's wedding at Opryland Hotel on Saturday was a busy day to say the very least... We (my wonderful assistant/second shooter Jennifer and I) arrived early afternoon to capture precious moments with mom and daughter, bride and bridesmaids and all the wonderful details that come with a wedding day.... All of which are very important to every bride!
Ashley's bridal suite was perfect for every single moment captured! Everywhere I turned there were photo opts! Ashley's colors were exquisite... Her wedding gown fit her style and complimented Ashley to pure perfection! We got to the groom a little later than planned... He was dressed and ready to marry his Ashley. He had to endure us for a bit before he could meet up with his bride and he was absolutely fantastic! He was wearing a black tux with a black bow tie... He and his groomsmen were very distinguished and handsome!
The ceremony was held in the Delta pavillion which is part of the hotels conservatory. The flowers and plant life was spectacular in this iconic landmark here in our very own Nashville. The ceremony took place at 5:00... The perfect time for the conservatory part of the hotel. The reception was to follow at the Gaylord Springs Golf Links. It was the perfect setting for Ashley and Brett, their family and their guests!
It was an unforgettable day for this amazing bride and groom.... Thank you Ashley, Brett and Mrs. Sharon for giving me the honor to be your professional wedding photographer on one of the most important days of your life!
Happy Honeymooning!!!

Oh my, where to begin with this AMAZING story! This very handsome husband and father to be has become very dear to my heart! James is my main Crossfit Coach... He came into my life and changed it over four years ago... He has completely changed my fitness regimen and my overall health!
This Crossfit guy has found the love of his life and the two of them are starting a perfect family together... We had planned a maternity photo shoot with Emily not knowing she was going to be proposed to that very evening.... James was very romantic and secretive in his planning, which went exactly as he had planned! If I'm thinking correctly, only one other person knew about his plan.... and what an amazing plan it was for his future wife and that sweet little baby Liam James! Emily didn't suspect a thing, it was a complete surprise and success!!!
The captures tell the complete story of his romantic proposal to his beautiful Emily... What an amazing evening and event it was....




Just plain GORGEOUSNESS!


You are so beautiful, lady! One of my faves!











That's a very happy young woman... This just fills my heart!







 

Congrats you three!!!
You both were a joy to work with!
~We did a complete studio shoot as well, but you will have to ask James and Emily to see those, they tell another story~

Stepping out of the comfort box, in my opinion, makes us all stronger and more educated in everything we do! I do it in my business life, my personal life and in my worldly life! Now blogging is completely out of my box, but I need and have to do it sometimes for my business! So, I was going through several photo shoots I haven't blogged about and came to this gorgeous shot of this beautiful family I did in the spring. Now, why is this particular shot out of the comfort box?? First of all, it's midday, which is really a "no no" in professional photography lingo. Especially for Masters in photography, and I've studied under plenty of Masters in my day! Most teachers say, find shade! No, not me!!! This family endured midday full sun, heat, and bugs (in a field)! The children weren't the most cooperative children, but I truly love kids! They probably think I'm the crazy photographer lady! Ha!
But anyway, in my professional opinion, this shot is a complete success and wall hanger in all technical terms! The lighting is perfect, the setting is perfect, their expressions are very natural and you can see their eyes, which is MAJOR in professional photography!
Stepping out of the box is always fantastic for me...

I have recently become a grandmother and I have to say, there's no other feeling like it in the world. I thought having a grandchild was going to be a wonderful feeling but I honestly did not think it was gonna be as grand as it is!
To have the complete honor and opportunity to photograph other grandmothers with their grandchildren is honestly complete bliss for me!


Oh my my!!!

This is one of the wonderful reasons I photograph weddings... Of course, my main reason is the passion for my work and the unity of marriage, but to give you another wonderful reason is photographing family! Here is a shot of three generations of fathers and sons!
I absolutely love photographing these families and creating priceless memories for their future generations....


Always remember important family photos when planning your wedding!
