downtown guadalajara • nashville, tn photographer

i arrived in guadalajara yesterday afternoon. my flights went great and i slid through customs just fine. today we ventured through downtown guadalajara. it started raining during our time there, but i was still able to get a few photos. being here has reminded me how long it's been since i've practiced my spanish … it's actually quite embarrassing how little i now know. i'm getting by on basic phrases. (all of these photos were edited on my laptop so i apologize if the colors are off.)

when brian and i adopted benny, we didn't realize how much our lives would be enriched because of it. he's my son, co-worker, carpooler and best friend all rolled into one! thanks for letting me share his life here.

lifestyle photographer columbia, tn • fagan and matthew

i was booked for matthew and fagan's wedding, but i am so glad that they wanted me to shoot their engagement session. we shot later in the day which gave way to beautiful skies and moodier lighting. i had such a wonderful time with them! fagan grew up in columbia and it was so interesting to learn more about the area from her. thanks so much for having me, you two! enjoy these!
