How cute are Mattie & Alex?! I had been looking forward to this shoot for a while because A) there was the sweet anticipation of Mattie waiting for Alex to get home from overseas serving our country in the Marines & B) Mattie lovesss color like me! So when we were picking locations for our engagement shoot we were both seeking out vibrant, happy colors which landed us at Stanley’s Greenhouse here in Knoxville, Tennessee & the Ijams Nature Center sunflower field!
One of my favorite parts of Mattie & Alex’s story is Alex’s pick-up line he used on Mattie. Not that it was cheesy or funny, but he literally just walked right up to her and told her she was the most beautiful girl in the world. What?! We all dream of this right?! And it wasn’t until chasing after her for 2 years that she started to chase him back and look where we are now - these two are getting married next June at the Knoxville Botanical Garden & Arboretum here in Knoxville. Eek!
This smiley, giggly pair was SO easy to photograph because they radiate like the sunshine & sunflowers in our shoot. They were all smiles the whole time, even when it started raining during our shoot. (Which was so magical, by the way!)
Hope you love these happy people and feel the warmth bounce right out of the photos! xo, Suzy

Phebe & Brad literally had me laughing the whole time we were together during their engagement session at the Knoxville Botanical Garden & Arboretum! These two seem like the best best friends and I would third wheel with them any day. You’ll pick up on Brad’s sarcasm very quickly as he jokes about what a “slob” Phebe is and how lucky she was to snag him when you hang out with Phebe and realize she is just a sunshine soul, inside & out, stunning and so kind. I get the feeling they are going to make a great team as a married couple and bless all the people they befriend along their journey together. I’m actually kinda still upset they didn’t invite me to join them for pizza & ice cream after. ;)
We managed to stay relatively cool during this outdoor sunset session in July in Knoxville by starting our shoot together near the evening. I love love loved Phebe’s long botanical floral dress and her and Brad paired their outfits perfectly together while also matching our garden setting. There is so much to love about this smiley, fun, and light-hearted couple. I hope you’ll enjoy a few moments from our time together!
Phebe & Brad - congratulations again! I am just THRILLED for you guys! xo, Suzy
Eeee this engagement session at Sequoyah Hills here in Knoxville, Tennessee with Alexa and Tom was absolutely perfect! All sunshine, sunflowers, and smiles! I’m finding this common denominator between all of my clients and it’s this - they are all so easy to be around, so our shoots just feel so fun & easy breezy. Enjoy a little glimpse of their happy, sunshine session at Sequoyah Hills! xoxo, SuzyRead More
