Engaged | Margaret & Ben

The past month has been filled with the excitement of the betrothal of my two good, good friends, Margaret and Ben. Last week, with the very talented Kristi McMurry, the four of us ventured into a kudzu jungle to shoot their engagement pictures. I am so thankful that Kristi and I were able to document this exciting time for the pair. I love shooting with her, and it was even more exciting that we were using different mediums; I shot with 35mm film, and Kristi shot with her DSLR. Krisit’s pics turned out excellently, and you should definitely check them out here. Below are some of my images from the day as well as pictures of the couple’s engagement dinner at Crown Winery later that week.

Southern Artisan Cheese Festival

On Saturday I had the opportunity to put my Velveeta and Yellow Tail away with childish things and attend the Southern Artisan Cheese Festival in Nashville. It was the third year for the festival and my first time attending. I struggled keeping my expectations at bay beforehand, but, fortunately, they were met, if not exceeded. With family and friends in tow, we were able to sample a large variety of cheeses from Southern cheesemakers as well as other handcrafted foods and brews from regional artisans. Little shoutout to some of my favorite vendors in attendance: Blackberry Farm, Bathtub Gin, Lusty Monk, and Yazoo (obviously). Already looking forward to the event’s fourth year!
