Rachel & Preston are simply beautiful, inside and out and have the natural repartee that is simply charming. This day was full of rich family tradition, heritage, elegance and romance. Definitely a pinch me experience.

Shooting this session at Mint Springs Farm was pure joy.  Glen and Stephanie are head over heels for each other and I can’t wait to capture their Nashville wedding at the farm next May.

Garden Roses- Kina Wicks Photography

You love the roses – so do I. I wish
The sky would rain down roses, as they rain
From off the shaken bush. Why will it not?
Then all the valley would be pink and white
And soft to tread on. They would fall as light
As feathers, smelling sweet: and it would be
Like sleeping and yet waking, all at once.

-George Eliot

Lake Engagement Photos

I have two weddings to shoot this weekend, but Monday you will find me on a lake somewhere with my honey soaking in the sun and enjoying an ice cold lemonade. Happy Memorial Day loves!
