I’ve known Brandon since I was 9 and Amber since 14 but I had no idea they knew each other! I guess you should just figure that would be the case in small towns. :o) When I found them again through myspace, I was so happy to see that they were dating and now they’re getting married on March 1st – can I get a collective “aw!”? Anyway, I think they’re adorable together and we’re very excited to be a part of the formal beginning of their official life together. (Seriously, how do you define a wedding in one basic sentence?)

We started their session at Amber’s parents house in Nolensville, TN and Sean and I were drooling just a little bit over all of the cool classic cars her dad has! This truck has special significance for Amber and I love this image from Sean!


We ended the session in one of our favorite places to shoot – the back alleys of Franklin. :o) I do believe we’ve started a two image trend on here so in keeping with the current theme, here’s another Sean creation. Congratulations you guys! The wedding will be here before you know it!


Also, did you notice? Our images are growing! Sean can’t stop playing with our blog so there’s more to come on that later…

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!

    Mel, I have known you since you were a little girl and had no idea you were doing such great new and exciting things with photography! So glad it’s with my SON and Future Daughter in Law.

    I love the reflection in the top. It adds to an already strong composition.

  8. mel on February 1, 2008 at 10:03 pm

    Thanks Natasha! We can’t really take credit for the emotion of course but we appreciate it! :o) Thanks to you too Libby! We’re looking forward to meeting you soon!

    I finally get to write something about our pictures! They look GREAT! You and Sean did a wonderful job! I love the truck picture and how it has the reflection in the tailgate. We are so excited about seeing the rest!
