This year has been an absolutely amazing one in every way. I graduated high school and am completing my first amazing semester of college. This year I got the chance to document so many wonderful families, seniors, and, for the first time, several weddings! I am so thankful for everyone who has been so completely supportive of me, both in my photography business and in my life in general. This year was so wonderful and I’m so looking forward to next year.
I am kicking off my “Best of 2012″ posts with Weddings and Couples. I am so thankful that I was able to capture some beautiful love between wonderful people this year. I am so grateful for the wonderful Nashville photography community that helped me branch out in my photography business, both with giving me advice and by allowing me to shoot with them- some of these images are from a wedding I shot with Chelsey Somohano Photography. I am so excited to continue documenting stories of love in this coming year.
Much love and keep an eye out for my other “Best of 2012″ posts :) -Amilia
I’ve talked about Jen and Chris several times on this blog- they are not only great people, but they are incredibly talented and creative photographers, and have compassionate hearts. I am very thankful to them because they have helped me in my photography business a lot this past year! I am excited to finally post these photos from their couple session- you can tell how much love they have for each other. And I finished editing these photos just in time- Jen and Chris celebrated their 4th wedding anniversary yesterday :)
I am excited to be sharing the second (and final) part of Ashley and Dean’s awesome wedding. (If you missed Part One, see it here). There were so many parts of their reception that I loved. Their first dance was beautiful- all the guests surprised them by running out on the dance floor to surround them with bubbles. Ashley works at a singing/dance/acting studio and all of the girls that go there were first to be out on the dance floor, going crazy and having fun. And don’t forget the sparkler exit- two of my favorite photos from the whole wedding were from the exit…they look so magical! I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do :)
And thanks again to Ryan Tolbert, my second shooter!
I am so excited to share Part 1 of Ashley and Dean’s wedding. My favorite aspect of their wedding was that the focus of everything was celebrating with family and, ultimately, celebrating getting married. They got married at Liberty Hall at the Factory in Franklin and they did a great job decorating it- they made the unique peacock-feather boutonnieres themselves and ordered custom-made matching converse in their wedding colors. But I loved that the focus of the entire day was their marriage, which made everything even more special. Everyone was saying that they have never seen such an enthusiastic groom! Their joy was so evident throughout the day and they were ridiculously cute together. Enjoy this first part of their wedding photos and stay tuned for more.
And special thanks to Ryan Tolbert, my second shooter!
You might remember me talking about Jen and Chris in this post, when I shadowed them on a couple session in Downtown Franklin. This couple is so sweet and I’m excited to share a couple of my favorites from our photo session yesterday :) More to come!
Ashley and Dean got married yesterday at the Factory in Franklin. Here’s one of my favorites from their super sweet “first look.” Dean didn’t want to see Ashley before the ceremony, so he was blindfolded so they could still spend some time together. More photos to come!
And I couldn’t resist posting one more so here is one from their sparkler exit!
If you’d like to see the rest of their photos, please register your email at their wedding gallery and you’ll be notified when all of their photos go online! You can register HERE!
Christy and Gerald had a beautiful June backyard wedding where they celebrated with their close family and friends. The decorations and details were simple but perfectly suited their intimate ceremony. It is easy to see the intense love Christy and Gerald have for each other, and I was so glad I got to share this special day with them!
Several months ago when I went on the Photo Walk in Nashville, I met Jen and Chris Creed, two SUPER nice and talented wedding photographers. Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to shadow them on a couple/family shoot in Downtown Franklin and I had so much fun shooting with them and learning about how they run their business! Our session with the Orlando family was so laid-back and wonderful. Paige, Jason, and baby Ethan were so nice and fun to be around! I wish I could spend every day like this! Here are some of my favorites from this great session :)
