April and Greg celebrated their one year anniversary with us. They were married at Honeysuckle Hills last year, only then they left their four beautiful daughters at home. I was extremely lucky to meet the four girls upon their return trip, and we had a wonderful time creating some artistic family images.

If I'm really lucky, I'll get to see them on their second year anniversary!

When you look at this image, can't you just hear the slow rhythm of "When a Man Loves a Woman?" I know I do!

Jena and Terry came to us for their engagement portrait session, and we hit it off almost immediately. Jena is the second bride who has asked my zodiac sign, so for all the rest of you who might be wondering, it's cancer. (By the way, so is Jena's!) We laughed, talked, and of course created beautiful engagement photographs into the evening. I can't wait to see them again in early May.

The leaves are beginning to fall now, and all our gardens have reluctantly gone to sleep. However, I can always find a great location for a photograph no matter what the season. The deep browns this time of year provide a rich background with a romantic mood.

Christine and Trent had their outdoor wedding among the golden autumn leaves of the Smoky Mountains on our farm. Scout, of course, wanted to participate once again to provide ambience for a country wedding.

I thought I would showcase one of our grooms this time as opposed to a bride. Our grooms enjoy the wedding photography just as much, if not more...though I doubt they will often admit it!

Carrie and Troy came to us for wedding photographs on October 28th. It seems the autumn colors in the Smoky Mountains are reaching their peak just now, and set quite a dramatic scene for outdoor wedding images.

I can't think of any better way to spend the day than photographing couples in love!
Little kids make the world go round, and they are certainly the star performers at any wedding. I could barely concentrate during Mandy and Jason's wedding because their daughter was such a show-stopper!

We brought out our hand-crafted oak sleigh for a great family portrait. One of my assistants dropped Mandy's train to create a flow that evokes the sound of sleigh bells... Christmas weddings in the Smoky Mountains will be upon us soon!
Sara and Jason flew in from Texas to spread a little southern romance around Honeysuckle Hills. My husband swears Jason looks just like Brad Pitt, so maybe that's one of the many reasons Sara looks so lovingly into his eyes!

This is another wedding that I could have posted dozens of images to our blog... It seemed that just around every turn we found a wedding photograph waiting to blossom, wishing for its turn to be created.

Sara specifically asked for a wedding photograph by our red barn. Our barn has never looked so good!
