Ashley & Brandon are married! // Nashville Wedding Photographer

One thing we love about Ashley and Brandon is that they got married the day after Stephen and I did.  The other thing we love about Ashley and Brandon is their deep love for Christ, and their amazing musical talent.  Together, they are in a band called The Boy & The Bride, and though they got married over 2 years ago, they wanted to put their wedding attire back on and get some updated wedding photos with us.  Though we weren’t their original wedding photographers, we absolutely loved taking them to the middle of nowhere in a Tennessee field with the Nashville golden setting sun behind them and give them beautiful new memories of their love they joined together over 2 years ago.  This was one of those shoots where Stephen and I loved every single photo we took of them, and it was so hard to narrow down favorites, but here are our absolute favorites below!

Trivia question:  When we met Brandon, he had one of those faces that looked familiar, until we finally figured it out.  Who can guess what mainstream Christian band Brandon used to be a part of?  Here’s a hint.  :-)

I love the idea behind the shoot. What a great anniversary idea.

Ashley got her glam on! // Nashville Model Portfolio Photographer

One thing we loved about visiting Nashville, TN recently was meeting so many creative people.  Ashley Hargest was one of them, and she needed some updated portfolio pieces for her modeling career.  Though she was recently a model for Lifeway Christian Bookstores, when photographing her in the field below, I felt like I was shooting her country music album cover!  She is also currently in a band, The Boy & The Bride, with her husband, and next on the blog we will be showcasing some updated bride and groom photos we also took of them.  Stay tuned!

The Vogelsang Family // Nashville & Brentwood Family Photographers

Each year, it’s such a treat to continue to document Sarah & Brian’s love story, now through their kids.  Having photographed their wedding in 2008, they have continued to hire Stephen and I each year to document their growing family as their darling kids Elle & Eli get older.  While they typically come down to Florida, this year, we photographed their family session in their hometown of Nashville around the Brentwood area.  And wow, what a beautiful sunset the Nashville sky gave us at the end of the session!  We already love everything about that town, but it’s definitely a photographer’s dream to shoot in!  Great family, great location, great laughter… it doesn’t get much better than that!  We truly feel so blessed to become great friends with our clients and be such a beautiful part of document their family history!

Here’s a few favorites from our session with them!  I’ve known these kids since they were tiny babies, and continue to melt at what beautiful children from the inside out they are growing up to be.  Stephen and I always love getting our cameras back on them, and how much fun they are with all their cuteness!

 

The Bissinger Family // Brentwood, TN Family Portrait Photographers

For the Bissinger family, they haven’t had a family photo all of them together in over 15 years.  With two grown boys, the mom, Cathy, knew that it was overdue to get all of her boys together finally for some updated photos.  We met one afternoon at Crockett Park with her immediate family, but also grabbed a few extra photos with her extended family, Elle and Eli, whom she nannies and takes care of throughout the week for another family whose family session is hitting the blog next week!

Also, we will be back in the Nashville area more frequently in the coming months, so if you are in the area or nearby and would like to reserve a portrait session with us, email us at scarlett@scarlettlovesstephen.com for more info!

Here’s a few of our favorites from their family session!

Gray & Wade were engaged! // Chattanooga Engagement Photographer

Gray and Wade have a unique story in that they practically lived together before ever dating.  What started as roommates in a duplex barely passing each other with quick hellos, eventually months later turned into a friendship because of Wade’s sister as a mutual friend.  As more time passed, and they both attended Wade’s sister’s wedding, they realized they had an undeniable chemistry on the dance floor of the wedding and they knew from that moment on that their hearts were meant to be together.

There’s nothing more flattering than another photographer hiring another photographer.  To be “that” photographer chosen to capture precious memories, to earn the trust of doing what the client does for a living.  I admit I was nervous to take on the job when we first got an email from Gray.  Yet, Gray put her trust in us, and when I saw her tears and smiles and laughter view these engagement images below, I couldn’t help but smile and cry with her knowing we had earned that trust.  You can visit her Gray McCurdy Photography website here!

For their engagement session, Gray wanted to take their photos around her family’s horse farm right outside the Chattanooga, Tennessee area.  Though the photos were taken only a few days before her wedding, with her love of horses growing up, she couldn’t imagine a better place than their big red barn and flowing fields. Here’s some of our favorites from their engagement session.
