If there was a wedding that screamed Father’s Day in my career, this would be one of them. From the emotional giveaway to the special Father/Daughter Dance Surprise, this one had me in tears. Megan’s mom and dad surprised her with their own rendition of “I loved her first” during the traditional Father/Daughter dance time. […]

She’s back!! I’m not talking about the bride, although she’s a sight for sure. I’m talking out my furry friend Lola. She tagged along for Austin and Megan’s engagement session. As we were planning Megan’s bridal session, we started joking about how cute Lola would be all dressed up. Well, then a thought became a […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
