Allandale Mansion Kingsport Tennessee (Photoshoot)

I got to book Allandale Mansion for a photoshoot over the weekend. Allandale is an amazing mansion in Kingsport Tennessee. Thousands of weddings have been booked there over the years. Just about every weekend there is a wedding or two going on. I learned a lot about its history over the weekend and it is something that I would suggest to anyone to research.

The day was cloudy but felt just right, as far as temperature goes. The day went really smooth. I had a blast with Samantha Prairie (single portraits) & Allie and Hunter Malone (Couple Session). We laughed and laughed until it started to hurt. We captured some of my favorite pictures I've took to this day. I also was blessed to work with Filomena's Florals for the photo session. She provided some beautiful head pieces and an elegant bouquet.

The Allandale Mansion had so many beautiful places inside for pictures. Some of my favorite shots where with the piano and on the historic staircase. If you want to hear a crazy story just lookup the story on its staircase inside! Took a lot to get it in the mansion but I'm thankful it was there! My goal in the next year or two is to be a photographer at a wedding booked there at the mansion.

I'd like to thank the Allandale Mansion staff for their great hospitality and Filomena for her amazing floral like always! I'm going to leave links below incase you want to check out the mansion or Filomena's Florals.

Graduation Photoshoot (Emory&Henry College)

This was a beautiful day for taking pictures. It was a warm and slightly cloudy day, which is perfect for some pictures. Brian and his wife Olivia reached out to me about taking some graduation pictures for them. We met up at the college and saw that Emory was having some sort of big event but we were up for the challenge; even though the place was swarming with college students (lol).

During the photoshoot we did have a few people who were cheering the picture process and wanting their picture taken. It was definitely something we didn't expect. No one was rude thankfully and it didn't take away from the great time we all had. Brian and his wife handled everything great! They weren't shy and were very natural in front of the camera. They didn't let hundreds of crazy college students stop them from showing their love and allowing me to capture some memories.

It was so lively and colorful all around us. We all definitely got our workout for the day as we got to walk for a good while in between locations. Our favorite spot was this barn area near the campus. It was quiet with no one else in sight when we got there. The light was absolutely perfect drawing near to the end of the session. We captured an amazing shot right before the sunset melted away.

Overall it was an amazing time. I saw true love between the two of them. You could really tell they loved each other and were happy taking these pictures together. I want to congratulate them and I cant wait to hear what their family thinks of the graduation invitations!
