Gatlinburg Wedding Photographer » RIK Photography is your best choice for modern artistic and creative wedding photography in Gatlinburg and the TN Smoky Mountains.

Our good friends Sereadia and James stopped by yesterday for a visit.  They came over from Nashville just to get away for a couple of days, stayed in the same cabin where they spent their honeymoon, and scheduled a little photo shoot for the afternoon.

They had a beautiful mountain wedding here at Bluff Mountain Inn on 1/1/11!  You can see images from their wedding on our blog.

It was great to see them again and to get to capture this wonderful relationship.  I think we’ll be scheduling family photos for the fall…

promotion for artistic seniorsPINIMAGE

We are looking for artistic seniors in the Smoky Mountain area, or who would want to come to the area for senior portraits.  Singers, dancers, musicians, artists.  Let’s have some fun and create some art around your artistic inclinations.  Photos can be done in studio or on location.  Typically we prefer location, but either will work.  Maybe even both.

Visit our online Senior Session Gallery to see what we have in mind.

The photographer, Rick King, is a professional photographer located in Pigeon Forge, TN, but has also worked as a professional musician, conductor/arranger and show producer for many years.  He has toured with Olivia Newton-John as orchestra conductor, and while on location done many portrait sessions with professional musicians in America and Australia.  He was also the entertainment director at the Louise Mandrell Theater in Pigeon Forge where he produced shows, worked extensively with singers and dancers as well as the band.  Having a love for the arts, and the eye of a photographer, Rick would be the ideal choice to capture your creative self on film (well, it’s digital, but you get the idea…).

There’s no session fee, but a $150 minimum order for prints to be paid up front.  Once the session is finished, we will take a week or so to edit and make you look fabulous, then they will be available for you and your parents to preview, discuss print options, etc.  Give us a call at 865.908.0321 or email us for details.

We participated in a workshop this week in Knoxville.  Workshops are always fun and we always learn/share something.  This one was at a studio in the Old City district of Knoxville.

The studio was a great spot, and the neighborhood is full of wonderful places to walk around and photograph people.

We had models for many different genres.  A couple who is (almost) engaged, a couple of beautiful kids, a ballerina, a high school senior and more.  Great folks, good fun, great experience…

beautiful bride on the ruins of the Parthenon, RomePINIMAGE

Finally taking a little time to go back through from images we shot last August in Rome.  This shot is of Michela sitting on some of the ruins next to the Parthenon. We posted quite a few both here on the blog and on Facebook right after the shoot, but I find that you will often look at things differently after some time.  Going back through images is sort of like finding money in your pocket after not wearing that jacket for a while.  It just makes you smile.

Anyone wishing to take a trip over to Italy for a photo shoot just give me a call.  We found some really stunning places.  Will post more as I get the chance.
