Sequoyah Hills Engagement // Karah & Andrew

I have had way too much fun editing these photos because Andrew & Karah's love is so sweet. You can see it in every image. It's just this quiet peace they both have about them when they're together. There was no rush as we enjoyed the beautiful weather at Sequoyah Hills, they were simply enjoying their time together before heading back to Nashville & Asheville. I'm sure they will be more than happy to trade long distance dating in for waking up together every morning in October!

Karah and Andrew, I am so so happy for you both and I am honored to capture your wedding day & tell your love story through photos. I can already tell - my job is going to be way easy.

XOXO, Suzy

In my experience, it seems to be the ladies that enjoy getting their photos taken the most. And I totally get it. However, when a guy is as taken with his girl as Andrew is with Karah, it almost feels like I'm not even there. He wasn't focused on me or the camera, he was totally just in tune with her joy, her smiles, & her kisses. It's so so refreshing. (:

Can I just take a second to point out all of Karah's outfits? I loved all 3 because they a. fit the setting we were shooting in, b. were diverse in color & style (she rocks a pretty white dress, teal blue velvet romper, & jeans with a rich floral top - perfect mix of looks!), and c. made her feel confident & beautiful! And it shows in the photos! They also did a great job of coordinating what they wore without being matchy-matchy. Way to go you two. (: Andrew, I'm sure you picked it ALL out.

I am so thankful we got to have our engagement session in a beautiful outdoor location because I think it's so reflective of Andrew & Karah's wedding to come in October! They will be getting married at one of my favorite places on earth, Camp Ridgecrest for Boys, in an open field surrounded by the beautiful fall leaves. Already praying that we have the same weather in October as we did during this shoot! I'm sure we will. (:

Fruit & Berry Patch Best Friend Senior Session // Meredith & Olivia

Photo shoots are so much fun when you've got a friend behind the camera making you laugh - and reminding you that your outfit is awesome & your hair looks great. (Couldn't both of these ladies be hair models?!) Olivia & Meredith, I love y'all's relationship and I know your friendship will continue long after college as y'all pursue your dreams of becoming a lawyer and occupational therapist. (Smart cookies, I know.) I had so much fun with you two! More friend sessions please!

Hope you enjoy a few favorites from our sunset photo shoot at The Fruit & Berry Patch!

XOXO, Suzy

University of Tennessee Senior Session // Maddie Luepke

I loved every second of this shoot because this girl is truly as sweet as her smile and her personality is as bright as her dress! With graduation just around the corner, this girl is all smiles as she wraps up one chapter and gets ready to start grad school here at the University of Tennessee next. Although we may or may not have almost gotten hit by a motorcycle while shooting in the middle of the road in front of Neyland - it was totally worth it! Maddie, you are going to make one killer teacher with your kind and fun-loving spirit. Congratulations on graduation and the next exciting steps ahead!

XOXO, Suzy

Sequoyah Hills Senior Session // Jenna Moskal

Everything about this shoot was flawless. Jenna looked stunning in her white dress and the blossoms were in full bloom all around us. Pair that with a warm breeze and a beautiful sunset - ugh, it was so dreamy! Jenna is graduating from the University of Tennessee this May, a fourth generation vol graduate in her family, and going on to get her Masters in education at UT! Sequoyah Hills was the perfect location for our shoot because it holds many special memories for Jenna since she was little and she'll be continuing to jog these pretty streets as she lives here while she gets her masters degree. CHEERS to you Jenna girl!!

XOXO, Suzy

Cherry on top - Jenna's mama got to hop in for a few photos at the end! Jenna is a 4th generation Tennessee graduate, so needless to say, this is a special time worth celebrating for her whole family! Her mom teared up as we wrapped up the shoot just looking at Jenna with sweet pride. Loved these moments!

Graduating seniors, I would love to celebrate this special season in your life with a graduate session! You choose the location and we'll work together to plan a shoot that emulates your personality as you close this chapter & begin a new adventure! XOXO
