The Hosking Wedding

Alla was a beaming, glowing bride and Ross was making everyone laugh the whole day. This wedding was smooth as silk. It was full of joy, sunshine, sandy beaches and gorgeous weather. It was my first destination wedding and I couldn't have been more blessed to photograph it along side my best friend and second shooter Molly Edwards. Here are just a few of my favorites!

The Pack Family - Saint Marys, GA

I met Sara and Chris at Carson-Newman University where I went to school a couple years ago. When she contacted me over the summer to come photograph her family in Georgia my heart couldn't have been more happy. My immediate response, "Yes!!!" I loved being up to catch up with you guys and photographing your cute little family. I can't wait to see Charlotte! I hope you all enjoy these photos. There's some film spread throughout this session too for the film lovers!

Taylor and Adam's Maternity Session

First off, my friend Taylor is one of the most radiant pregnant women I know. She just glows. I always love photographing these two because they not only love each other so much but because they are two of my friends! I can't wait to meet baby Levi. 

Shelby

I want to live a simple life. One without chaos, distraction and anything that hinders me from being better. I believe in order to begin living simply starts in the mind. It takes redirecting my focus on the important things in my life such as, the Lord, my family and friends, finishing tasks that I've started and doing all of these things day to day. When my mind is focused on too many things and looking too far ahead everything seems to get lost, my thoughts, my sanity and ultimately my purpose. In my life today I will try to live simply. -Elli Jane

 

I wanted these photos to be simple, yet beautiful and take you to a different place even if it's just for a couple of seconds to get away from the chaos of your life. Flowers were my inspiration so they were my central focus. They bring so much color and happiness. I chose Shelby to be my model because she has such a distinct beauty I can't even really explain. Her blue eyes seem to pierce you and her delicate features are so striking. She was perfect to stand in the midst of the flowers and vines! For fun I brought along my Holga film camera to try out. I couldn't have been more happy with them being my first shots in over the past two years. My hope is to continually get better. All that to say I hope you enjoy these! 


The Cutshalls' - One Year Anniversary

When Brandi contacted me about doing her and Chris's one year anniversary photos as a married couple I was so excited! Brandi and I went to Carson-Newman University together and took some of the same photography classes. I always admired her paintings and photography and her heart to be different. I decided I wanted to be different too after seeing some of the art she produced and do things that inspire people. All that to say, I'm grateful to have gotten to spend time with the two of you and am glad you're still photographing I hope you enjoy these photographs and the bits and pieces of film throughout. 

Chelsey & Jacob

These two were so much fun to work with! I knew I was going to love working with them the moment I met them. They were both kind, easy going and were completely infatuated with each other. I can't wait to be apart of your sweet wedding next spring! 

The Garon Family

I had such a fun time photographing this cute family around Saint Cloud on this beautiful Friday evening. Jonathan and Jenny you both have beautiful children!

Courtney and Michael Engagement Set

I have known Courtney for 10 years now. She is a good friend of mine from high school and I was so excited to get to photograph her and Michael's engagement photos. Their love for each other is so sweet! I am so blessed to know you Court and Michael! I can't wait for your wedding in September. 

Miss Sara Lee

My heart is so full to share these photographs with you. Just so you know, I love Florida. These photographs remind me of being out on the farm working with the cows when I was growing up. Don't let my crazy, thrifty clothing fool you! I'm a cowgirl at heart. I hope you enjoy the laughter, nature and blue skies in this set of photos. Sara Lee you are beautiful!

Let's go camping!

About a month ago a group of my friends and I went camping around Fort White, FL. It was amazing! We experienced so many fun things such as, going tubing in the springs, being rained out, tents being soaked, bruises, cuts, bites, adventures and random corn fields. My heart and soul couldn't have been happier. Enjoy the photographs. These people have become so much apart of my life and have influenced me in so many ways. Blessed to know them! 

Our beautiful tent!

Joey and Tiffani sittin' in a tree…

Before Joey's girl left for South Carolina he wanted me to take some photos of the two of them. I gladly accepted and off we went into a forest of FL trees. It was a lot of fun. These two are adorable! Don't forget to click play to listen to some fun music while you're looking over these fun photographs!

Joe and Amy got married!

On March 20th, 2014 two sweet people I know signed the papers, exchanged beautiful vows and promised to spend the rest of their lives together. They have an amazing story, hence the reason they got married on 3/20 to represent a verse that says it all. Ephesians 3:20 says, "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us." I have only heard bits an pieces of how they met and how the Lord strategically brought them together but even hearing just a little will blow your mind away. If you know these two be sure to ask them! :) Enjoy the photographs.
