On October 23, we met up with Colby and Nicole at the Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum to capture their Autumn engagement session. We were especially excited to capture this engagement session because Colby and Nicole are actually family friends! It was such a pleasure to capture their engagement session and we’re already looking forward to their Heartland Meadows wedding in the spring of 2019.
Knoxville Botanical Gardens Engagement Session in Knoxville, TN.
It’s such an honor to photograph weddings and engagement sessions, but it’s even more fun when those sessions are for people we’ve known for years. Colby has known our families ever since he was little! He even played football with Brittany’s brother! It’s so wonderful to see him so happy with the love of his life, Nicole.
Colby’s family owns two popular Knoxville businesses. They created Moonshine Mountain Cookies, a local Knoxville cookie shop (and a Knoxville favorite)! During the holiday season, Colby and Nicole both help and support the business. They even have been known to stay overnight in the shop to bake cookies and prepare online orders. Colby’s parents also created and own the companies FunMakers, and Rocky Top Dog Fence. It’s amazing to see how involved Colby and Nicole are with the family businesses serving customers in the East Tennessee area.
Knoxville Botanical Gardens Engagement Photography
Colby and Nicole are all about each other. They giggled throughout their whole engagement session. So those smiles, that laughter, the sparkle in their eyes? It’s all natural. It was easy to photograph them since these two were so relaxed in front of the camera. In addition to their natural smiles, we had a great natural backdrop to work with. The Knoxville Botanical Gardens provided a gorgeous backdrop for Nicole and Colby’s engagement portraits. With 47 acres of walking trails, stone walls, and unique display gardens, the KGBA is an amazing Knoxville photography destination!
The way Colby looks at Nicole is enough to make your heart melt. We couldn’t help but smile at how these two interacted. It was easy to see how in love they are. That adoration came through in their engagement photography. They also brought their dog to their photography session, which was such fun. After all, pets are family, too! Each happy smile and loving glance of their Knoxville Botanical Gardens engagement session made us more excited for their wedding this may at Heartland Meadows.
Colby and Nicole, we were so happy to document your happiness and we can’t wait to be your wedding photographers this spring!
