Lookout Mountain Engagement Session | Bella + Matt | Chattanooga, TN

Love stories and engagement sessions are my favorite thing to photograph.

There. I said it.

Now, let me explain. This is where we get to know each other. I get to hear about your love story, how you met, how you fell in love, how you adopted a puppy together, how the proposal happened, and the wedding planning is going. All the good stuff. This is where you get comfortable, better understanding how it feels to be in front of my camera, having clearer expectations of what wedding day might be like. This is where I get to observe what kind of couple you are - if you’re flirty and cute, if you’re serious and steamy, if you’re playful, or if you’re a bit intimidated by P.D.A., if you’re cool with my potty mouth, or down with the N.W.A., or if you know all the Hogwarts houses. This is when all that magic happens.

Engagement sessions also give us more control. We get to pick where we want to shoot, we get to figure out what sort of vibe we want, what clothes would work best (always a big fan of neutrals and earth tones, or pop of flattering color like the red is on Bella’s skin tone!), and if there’s anything of big time importance you want to include and why (like your pup or the location where you met, or playing your favorite Super Nintendo game). It’s way less stressful than wedding day, and often times way more creative, and even better light.

Bella and Matt made this really easy for me, even driving in from Atlanta for their session. They said they wanted mountain views, so mountain views there were - we even got way lucky with the tow planes flying over head! We ran around the mountain top, twirled on the curving roads, and snuggled in summer wildflowers. I don’t think there’s a better recipe for a perfect Tennessee engagement session!
