Vintage mismatched china. An Anthropologie bridal gown. And a gorgeous light centerpiece. As much as I love photographing in Knoxville, it’s so refreshing to get outside of the city and see how other brides are designing their weddings. I love it when couples think outside of the box and break the rules of wedding day […]

So, back in the summer, Hannah and Chad met me on one of the hottest days I’ve ever shot. We were all sweating within a minute of shooting. We ended up only spending about 25 minutes shooting in that gorgeous sunflower field. So I gave them the option of doing a part two engagement session […]

I have been DYING to share this session with the rest of the world. While I’m still working on Aaron and Courtney’s wedding, I want to share her bridal session. This dress though! Courtney’s Grandmother and Mother wore this gown on their own wedding day. With a few tweaks to make it a little different, […]

An outdoor September dream of a wedding. It was the perfect backdrop to begin their next journey. Samantha and Aaron have travelled all over the world together but they decided to bring their wedding day to where it all began…in Knoxville. And it was the perfect combination of romance, joy, and family traditions. They have […]

Tennessee Football, October sky sunsets, and roasting s’mores….oh…and pumpkin everything! I love this time of year and I love how happy Knoxville is. Anyone else noticed this? Thank you, Tennessee Vols, for making Knoxville a little more pleasant and for being a backdrop for this perfect VOLtober engagement session. So excited to photograph Bailey and […]

Okay, so the Vols won but not in the way we all wanting…can I get an amen? But the next day changed my outlook. I had the experience of a lifetime the other day with Jessica and Chase. We got to step on the field of the Neyland Stadium and it was a pretty awesome […]

My alarm clock went off at 4AM and to be honest, I was up before then. I kept waking up throughout the night hoping and praying I wouldn’t sleep through my alarm. I don’t do sunrise sessions often because who wants to do photos at 7am? Michelle and Justin! They recently moved to Chattanooga and […]

Summer 2015: My conversation with Catherine – Catherine: Hey Amber, I’d love to book an engagement session with you for this Fall while we’re in town. What’s your availability? Amber: I’d love to! Are ya’ll getting married in Knoxville? When’s the big day? Catherine: We’re getting married either June or July in Chicago since it’s […]

Something I’ve learned about this weather lately…just go for it! We’ve had a chance of thunderstorms so many weeks for the last month and it is DRIVING ME CRAZY! It’s been so iffy that I had no idea if it would really storm or rain or hail or whatever! So when Chelsea and Tyler’s engagement […]

I love that this wedding is the first I’m posting on my new blog. I can’t even contain my excitement to show this one off. Caitlyn and Jordan had been waiting so long for this day. I’ve gotten to know both of them so well this last year and they are filled with nothing but […]
