We Love Photography! We are artists and we live for this stuff. When not shooting a wedding, a family portrait session or some other paid assignment, it’s a pretty regular thing to schedule a session with one of our favorite models, one of our favorite hair/makeup artists, find some unusual place or some unusual theme and see what we can come up with. It’s good practice, a great creative outlet and it’s just fun. (Just take a look at our Avant-garde gallery to see what we’re talking about.)
Even after hundreds and hundreds of weddings, portraits and other stuff, it’s still fun. And we don’t just do it because it’s fun. We have a talent, and we get to share that talent with all of our clients and the people who know and love them. We make them look good, and that’s our job. Not that we change the way someone looks, but we know (because we have studied… boy have we studied!) different ways to pose people to enhance their build, or make use of light in a certain way to make it more flattering to them.
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is just a few miles away. Family portraits, bridal portraits or engagement sessions are always fun in the park. There are also many beautiful locations in the greater Knoxville area (Maryville, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville) that make excellent backdrops for beautiful imagery. You can have a mountain session or an urban session. The look and direction are totally up to you.
