World Outreach Church, Murfreesboro, TN

Marcus and I drove to Murfreesboro last Thursday for Rachel Robinson & Ben Strickland's Friday wedding at World Outreach Church. After some photos of the girls getting ready backstage, Rachel and Ben had a private meeting in the sanctuary before doing their formal photos. They even braved the summer heat and sun for a few couple photos outside. The reception included a full dinner buffet and a DJ.

The Krispy Kreme groom's cake was a hit. Also, I thought it was a great idea to attach the personalized matches to the sparklers so that everyone could light their own.

Tea at the Gallery, Knoxville, TN

On Saturday, I joined a group of girls at Tea at the Gallery to celebrate Kate's sixth birthday. Seated together around a long table, the guests were treated to flavored teas and beautifully presented sweets. In addition to the normal birthday shots, I tried to shoot a few portraits as well. They were all such little ladies, and it is such a fun age. You have never seen so many toothless smiles! Here are some of the girls... starting with Kate as she watched out the window for her guets to arrive and ending with the twins.

In an intimate ceremony at Butterfly Gap Retreat, Ashlyn Slone married Ed Mitchell in 2006. After being pronounced, they shared cake and champagne with their best friends. The event was short but meaningful with an understated elegance.

The Great Smoky Mountains, Sevierville, TN

It's that time of year when everyone gets together for picnics, barbecues, and reunions. On Thursday, I photographed a family get-together in Sevierville. The family members traveled from all over the country (California, Florida, Virginia) and had rented a large cabin overlooking Wears Valley. We did some photos there as well as some just inside the Smoky Mountains National Park at the Metcalf Bottoms Picnic Area.

Ocoee Whitewater Center, Copperhill, TN

On Monday I photographed Emily & Clay at the Ocoee Whitewater Center in Copperhill, Tennessee. I had never been there before, but it's really a neat place to visit. A thunderstorm threatened to rain us out, but luckily we were able to get in some photos first. They even brought out their little dog Chester for a few family photos.

I'm looking forward to their October 13th wedding in Cleveland.
