Welcome to my blog! I'm a wedding photographer based in Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the authentic couple wanting an exclusive experience and timeless captures. I thrive off of building genuine relationship that last beyond wedding days! I'm also a wife, boymom to Beckett James, enneagram type 1, and love all-things nature. So, basically if I'm not doing something photography-related, you'll find me outside with my toddler recovering from perfectionism. Anyways, enjoy viewing my latest work, resources for clients and friends, and glimpses into my life!

I “met” Suzanne in a Facebook moms group for Chattanooga. We both realized that we were social workers, but we didn’t talk much at all, really. Several months later I had posted asking who other moms trusted for childcare, because I was ready to hire someone to watch Beckett part-time so that I can work. […]
Tyler Layman is the epitome of a country boy. If he isn’t working, he can probably be found out on the water fishing, in the woods hunting, or on a baseball field. The light was gorgeous during his senior session. But honestly, I was more excited about spending time with him, because I was tomboy […]
