OKAY. I think it's safe to say that these are my new obsession. I've known Dana and Joel for years so when they asked me if I'd like to take some photos of them in the Tennessee mountains I OBVIOUSLY started doing a happy dance and screamed yes!!! We made our way to Gatlinburg in a five-hour car drive and the views were incredible. We looked everywhere online for places that had a good view and could find nothing close to us. Sooo, we decided to drive around the streets of Gatlinburg until we saw a spot. We saw this overlook and KNEW that was it. This was the Tennessee view for their couple session that we had been hoping for. And can I just say... doesn't it always work out? I've seen Tennessee engagement sessions and wanted to shoot there for years now. This was the icing on the cake. Dana, Joel + Gatlinburg all have my heart. Tennessee couple sessions are my new favorite.
These two got married in Florida two years ago and I took pictures of them on their honeymoon! I've been wanting to take more ever since and I'm so happy that this was the place that we got to do it in. Dana grew up going to Tennessee every year. It's practically her second home and it was so obvious how much this city means to them. It's very clear in the photos that the mountains are where these two are meant to be.
If you would like to check out my first 2022 wedding (it's a good one) you can do it here!
And if you'd like to reach out about me shooting you and your favorite person you can do that here :)
