Katie + Matt, Married


I’m finally getting around to sharing some of my favorite weddings. 2018 was my busiest year yet, which included some new friends I had the pleasure of not only photographing but getting to know on a personal level. I don’t even know where to start with Katie + Matt… They came over to my place for their first meeting and brought their pup, so I basically already loved them. Katie + Matt have this care-free, inviting warmth that makes being around them not only easy but so much fun. Matt is the definition of kindness and reminds me of that old-time romance guy from the classics. He adores Katie to no end and it’s easy to pick up on within one minute of seeing them together. Then there’s Katie. I want Katie to move to Nashville (well Matt too) so that I can see more of her. This girl is hilarious, and I don’t think I’ve laughed so much with a bride before. She is obviously such a stunning woman, but her intellect, humor and love are what I adore most about her (and the fact she brought her cat to her wedding).

I had the pleasure of photographing my dear, new friends in Sewanee next to Matt’s family’s property and holy cow it was gorgeous. Everyone cried, laughed, drank, danced, and Matt ripped his pants down the middle on the dance floor— it was a great day.
