Since I moved my photography company from Atlanta to Nashville in 2016 I’ve probably made the round trip drive from back to Atlanta to photograph weddings and visit friends and family close to 75 times. That means I’ve passed through Chattanooga around to 150 times. I always enjoy stopping in the revitalizing town for good food and drink. Two of my favorite places are Mad Priest Coffee & Cocktails and the Yellow Deli Cafe. Check them out; you won’t be disappointed.
However, being able to photograph Campbell’s bridal portraits at the Hunter Museum of American Art is one of my highlights of Chattanooga. The museum overlooks the Tennessee River and is both modern and historic. We spent most of this session photographing in the old mansion on site that had a very victorian feeling. One thing that helped to make it a wonderful shoot is that Campbell was really comfortable with the camera. True magic in photography happens with both my clients and I work together in the collaboration of creativity. It’s the sort of thing I can feel in the moment and know we are in the zone.
