Last weekend I photographed a beautiful Oneida TN wedding. Fall in East Tennessee is incredible! Here’s one shot of Ting. I can’t wait to share more! xo

I believe that if you want something, you should put that desire out in the world. So here’s my desire. I am now offering Chattanooga Elopement Photography to couples eloping.
I want to be your photographer for your Chattanooga elopement. I’ve never photographed an elopement or small weekday wedding, but I would love the opportunity. I’ve been shooting weddings for three years & I absolutely adore it. My favorite thing about weddings is the love, emotions, & excitement. I don’t think you need thousands of dollars in vintage rentals or 100 guests to have an incredibly meaningful wedding.
Did you know that an elopement doesn’t have to be at the Chattanooga Courthouse? As long as you have an officiant and two witnesses, you can get married anywhere. Many wedding venues offer their spaces for weekday elopements & many public parks don’t even require permits.
I love how elopements can be as big or small as you want. You can wear a beautiful wedding dress or show up in the same clothes you wore to work. You can spend money on a beautiful bouquet or you can spend money on a fancy hotel room for the evening. You can have no one you know present or have ten of your closest friends and family. My favorite wedding blog, A Practical Wed, has TONS of great examples of beautiful elopements. Whether you are calling off your big wedding & eloping
or planning a post-elopement reception, eloping can be a great solution to wedding stress.
If you are getting eloped, check out my portfolio, read some reviews, & get in touch for more information about my Chattanooga elopement photography!

My oh my, I’ve got a doozy for you! I am so excited to finally share this Reserve at Bluebird Hill Wedding. Everything about this wedding was right up my alley- it was truly a celebration of Alicia & Patrick!
One of Alicia’s sisters, Ashley, is an incredible Baltimore wedding photographer, so they knew how to throw a wedding. It was an honor to get the seal of approval from Ashley! The day started at the Oliver Hotel where Alicia & her adorable bridesmaids got ready. Then we moved to one of my FAVORITE East Tennessee wedding venues, the Reserve at Bluebird Hill. Seriously, it is a photographers dream. There are so many photo possibilities & the reception is GORGEOUS & full of natural light! The Reserve at Bluebird Hill weddings are so fun- I could shoot a million times there & never get bored.
Even though the details of this wedding were perfect, my favorite part was the LOVE. Families, friends, bridesmaids, groomsmen- everyone was SO happy for Alicia & Patrick to be married & it really shows through. That’s what I love to photograph the most. Congratulations to Alicia & Patrick!
