I’ll never be able to say this enough, but I LOVE my clients, which very often I can exchange “clients” for friends. In this instance, it was certainly the case! So, I’d love to show you the cute engagement portraits of my new buddies, Allison + Justin. We started off in their neighborhood of 12South at Sevier Park. Allison wanted to have some winter-themed photos taken here since their wedding will be in the winter. I loove the flannel outfits they wore and Sevier Park has some cool historic buildings that really set the stage for some vintage woodsy looking scenery.
This is Theodore aka Ted aka Teddy, their giant Goldendoodle who was full of energy and totally lovable. Ted is a hip pupster with his hat and cigar. Ted is actually chewing on a stick – a stick that looks like a cigar, which completes his hip outfit, so we’ll go with cigar. 🙂
We had some BBQ over in the 12South neighborhood and took some pics in front of an awesome green building across the street. Arm wrestling, face biting, and thumb wresting were all on the menu. Allison won. Sorry Justin, but she did. You should probably work on your thumb conditioning and challenge her to a rematch. 🙂
The East Bank Greenway right near the Titans stadium has some amazing views of downtown Nashville and the Cumberland River. Nashvillians are so lucky to be able to walk over the river to downtown using their dedicated pedestrian bridge.
And of course, you can’t NOT take a photo with Elvis. Over on Broadway, it’s a kitsch-fest, but I love it, I love it, I love it. For this first time Nashville tourist, it made me insanely happy to see this street when Shawn and I went scouting the day before.
Lastly, we headed over to Union Station Hotel, which surprise, was the old train station for Nashville. The lights outside are everything you would imagine they would be in an old 19th century building.
Thanks Allison and Justin for showing us around Nashville! I can’t wait to photograph you guys again on the BIG DAY!!!!
