Happy Saturday!! We can FINALLY (after struggling to contain our excitement for months) share Amanda's bridal session because this beauty-queen got married yesterday! 

Amanda came to us last year with desire for us to shoot her wedding and we immediately became excited because her style and aesthetic fit ours so well! When she told us she also desired to shoot a separate pre-wedding day bridal session, our hearts burst! Since she would be getting married at The Standard Knoxville, a downtown/industrial venue, she desired to showcase her love for all things natural and boho for her solo portraits. With hair in a loose updo, natural makeup + a simple flower crown, she become a stunning beauty+ an even more stunning bride. We think her vision + ours came to life perfectly! Just LOOK at how effortlessly stunning Amanda is!

We love shooting with our brides prior to their wedding day because it gives these beautiful women a chance to try out their desired wedding day look + try out being a bride for the day. During these sessions, the bride can see how her dress photographs, see how her dress + hair/makeup looks/feels, how comfortable (or uncomfortable!) her shoes feel, and most importantly-she will be one step closer to becoming a real bride!
