Anniversary Session Chattanooga TN

Well, where do I begin with this session! It was a session out of a magazine, and the feedback I have gotten from this session has been very overwhelming! I am honored to have captured Crystal and Jordan’s Anniversary Session Chattanooga, TN, at Coolidge Park. I have known Jordan and Crystal for almost 2 years now, and I cannot even begin to say how amazing these two humans are. Anniversary Session Chattanooga TN

I credit most of my success with my business to them, and I am honored and humbled to be asked to photograph their anniversary session. I remember when Jordan asked me if I would do the shoot for him and Crystal. He was hesitant, but I was shocked and excited to shoot for them. It was during our WLMA Meet-Up weekend in Chattanooga, TN, this past weekend. Anniversary Session Chattanooga TN

When we met, I toyed with the idea of wearing all black. With such strong features, the all-black outfit enhances them. They were on board for it.

Setting for a session is everything and sets the ambiance and color palette for the entire session. The cool color of the river, cloudy sky with a fog mix, and the beautiful sunset that appeared at the end were like a delicious Chili recipe. It all came together beautifully and was exactly how I envisioned it. Anniversary Session Chattanooga TN

I was joined by 3 of my closest friends who are amongst the most talented people in the industry, and when we put our heads together, we create some SERIOUS magic together. Brittany Ford, Haniel Singh, and Jesse James Ayers thank you for joining me on this session. It was so much fun working with other creatives. P.S. I cannot wait to see the vlog that Jesse created for this session. Anniversary Session Chattanooga TN

This session was just fun. I felt so much pressure to deliver on their photos, but I’d say that I did a really great job. They were happy, happy, and happy, and I am honored to be their photographer. Check out how these two met, their love story, and what they would do with each other for 24 hours. Anniversary Session Chattanooga TN

A LITTLE Q&A FOR OUR COUPLE

HOW DID YOU MEET?!

“At university, I saw Crystal in the library and introduced myself to her.”

TELL US ABOUT YOUR FIRST DATE!

“I (Crystal) was out by an outdoor fountain practicing my photography skills. Jordan was also getting into photography at this time. I decided to message him and tell him I was practicing my night photography by the fountain and conveniently asked for his opinion, hoping he’d join.”

“It took him about 5 minutes for him to come running out from his dorm on campus to meet me up with his camera and practice his photography skills with me. We ended up talking by the fountain for 5 hours straight. It wasn’t an official date, but it was the first time we ended up hanging out and one of our most memorable times.” Anniversary Session Chattanooga TN

“Oh, this was also at night, I was practicing my night photography. My picture came out better. LOL”

Jordan: “Her beauty and depth. Her desire for more in life outside of the norm of most people.”

HOW DID HE PROPOSE?

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MEMORY FROM YOUR WEDDING DAY?!

“ALL OF IT. The best part was being able to celebrate with family and friends. Our wedding wasn’t just about us. It was also about people we love and celebrating it all. In the end, everyone gathered around us, arm to arm, with us in the middle, and sang to us our wedding song.”
