In case you weren’t able to watch the segment, feel free to click the image below to watch. And I also made a graphic that gives a bit more notes & details of the content mentioned on the segment.

Kayce & Jared’s Legacy Springs Wedding // Madisonville, TN

As a new associate photographer, I’m proud to present my first wedding with Finch Photo! When I first met Kayce and Jared last year to shoot their engagement session, we drove up to Cherohala Skyway to get some great pictures of them and the mountains. The whole session was a great experience. Since the weather is sometimes unpredictable up there, we didn’t know what to expect. We found A LOT of fog! It definitely didn’t stop us and it actually made some great pictures. I could very much feel their love for one another in every picture; then and now. When I arrived at their wedding venue, I knew everything was going to turn out perfect. Legacy Springs offers a great location for any kind of wedding with acres of beautiful trees, fields, and water. Both Kayce and Jared’s family/friends were also welcoming and made the whole experience great. I’m thankful I could capture it! I now consider them my good friends.

Knox’s 5th Birthday Party

My little mini-me, Knox, turned 5 several weeks ago & we had a small party with our family & a few friends. I could write for days about how proud I am of each of our children & about the joy they bring to our lives. For several months we’ve been asking Knox what kind of birthday party he would want & he kept insisting on an “Indian” party. In a major way, he is infatuated with all things Indian. He often wears a rad little Indian costume complete with moccasins & a spear that a friend made him. When he’s in costume, he couldn’t be happier. So for his birthday, Joy was busy thinking of ways to decorate & style his party. She made several headdresses for Knox & his friends in addition to having a activity area for kids to make their own necklaces & bracelets. I designed some little Indian cupcake toppers & went to Lowe’s & picked up a few wooden poles & a painter’s canvas drop cloth to make a teepee. Thankfully, Joy’s dad came a little early & put the teepee together. It looked fantastic; what a fun afternoon!

I chose to capture the birthday party on medium format film on my Hasselblad H1, developed & scanned by Film Box Lab. Here are a few of my favorites:
