Erin - Oh. My. Goodness. These are absolutely breathtaking!

Brides / Leslie

The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,
because that is the doorway to her heart,
the place where love resides.

– Audrey Hepburn


Sweet Leslie married her Mike in June, so I’m thrilled to be able to share some photos from her bridal portrait session in Cannonsburgh Village in Murfreesboro. Their wedding (which will be on the blog soon!) had a vintage elegant theme, so it was only fitting that Leslie would wear her mother’s wedding dress on her big day. Leslie had the dress redesigned and altered, but kept the same gorgeous layers of lace. Knowing how close Leslie and her mom are, I think it’s totally fitting that they now both share the same beautiful wedding dress.

Unlocked Boudoir / Fall Boudoir Marathon

You asked, so here it is! I’m holding a boudoir marathon in Nashville (well, Franklin) on October 7th. I know it seems a little early, but now is the perfect time to think about gifts for Christmas (or Valentine’s Day). Give him something that’s completely unexpected and unforgettable this year. He will be soooooo thankful!


In Ohio? Planning is in the works for a fall boudoir marathon in Columbus as well. Contact me for more details!

Wed | Kevin + Jennifer, Part 2

Ready for part 2 of this gorgeous wedding? If you missed it, you can see part 1 here.

Kevin and Jennifer’s beautiful June backyard wedding took place on their property in Hickman, Tennessee. Stone Gate Farm was the perfect backdrop for their intimate wedding. Their closest friends and family gathered underneath the big elm tree overlooking the old barn on the property. Simply lovely. I’m SO thankful I got to share this special day with you two!
