Knoxville Wedding Photographer
Andrew and Emma
I recently had the pleasure of getting some gorgeous Knoxville engagement shots for Andrew and Emma. I remember the first time I met Andrew quite vividly. It was three years ago, and he just struck as a typical, macho, better not mess with me or I’ll whoop you kind of guy. However, I’ll be the first to admit that I was wrong because I’m totally not afraid of fessing up to errors in my ways. I’ve gotten to know Andrew since that first impression, and he’s one of the most humble, hardworking, and respectable people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. He has some serious goals, and I genuinely believe he will accomplish them with the love of his life beside him. But I would like to point out that he is Army ROTC at the University of Tennessee so technically I wasn’t completely off base.
There’s something about Andrew that you have to realize. He’s a very disciplined man, and he’s serious about what he’s serious about, if you get my drift. He’s just not the kind of guy that’s going to be cheesing it up at the DMV. I love and respect that about him, but it often translates into photographs where he’s not quite smiling. Yet enter Emma, the love of his life. It’s amazing to see his face light up whenever they touch, and to watch their interactions affect his entire demeanor. She really brings out the more gentle, sensitive and loving sides of his personality.
We really had an adventure on this engagement photo session. We got to know each other even better, and get into the mode to prepare for their upcoming wedding. Perhaps this is another reason why engagement sessions are so important. It’s bonding time for us- you, your fiancé, and me, the guy chasing you with the camera. It helps us get into the swing of things, understand how we all work, and build a relationship so when the Big Day rolls around, we all feel a little more comfortable which translates into even better photographs.
I’m so honored to be Emma and Andrew’s Knoxville Wedding Photographer, but more than anything else, I’m proud to call Andrew my friend.
