Omg, I can’t tell you how dynamic Stacey and Andrew’s Oak Ridge Country Club wedding was! I mean, not only were they and their guests some of the most enthusiastic dancers I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing but also the weather!! We found ourselves trapped outside on the golf course, far away from the reception building, in a downpour and were luckily saved by the Club’s staff. Needless to say it was very memorable…and by the grace of God we came away with some ADORABLE photos!
The day started as many do in mid-Fall, with hopes for good weather and a crisp excitement in the air. Andrew and his groomsmen looked dapper as all-get-out and Stacey and her bridesmaids looks drop-dead gorgeous.
Everyone was a buzz with love and excitement from the day’s start all the way through to the end of the day. Stacey and Andrew are some of the sweetest, most down to earth people I’ve ever met and I’m so honored to have been able to document their wedding. I am so excited for them and can’t wait to see what adventures they go on together in the future!

Lauren played such a meaningful role in our wedding, capturing the day in photos that we'll look back on for the rest of our lives. She kept Scott and me calm and sane - Lauren is a miracle worker! She put in 100% effort and gave us her very best, and that means so much to me. Seeing our photographs makes me so excited and so happy that Lauren was with us on this journey.
There was a chunk of time in our wedding planning when we thought we'd go without a professional photographer to save on cost (terrible idea!) but once we met with Lauren, we knew we'd be in good hands. She checked in often and asked questions that got us thinking about other parts of the wedding that we probably would've missed. Lauren captured exactly who we are as a couple!
Lauren and her team are so much fun to work with! She made us feel so comfortable on the day of our wedding, providing both silly and helpful cues to help us relax and be ourselves in our photos. Lauren’s background in dance is super helpful in recognizing simple posture changes that make a big difference, too. Oh, and the photos we got are just stunning!
My husband and I looked FOR MONTHS to find the perfect photographer and after meeting Lauren we knew was the best fit for us. She made our day so much fun and easy. She found little opportunities to make the perfect photo all with a calm ease that comes from someone who has an artistic eye along with experience in understanding the flow of a wedding.
I've been in several weddings and have worked with a multitude of photographers and I never felt as confident as I did with Lauren. I love how professional she is. She helped with the timeline way in advance and we stuck to that timeline the day of. She was also able to professionally and firmly keep unruly family members settled and focused and navigated family drama beautifully!
