Hello -


I am Audrey, and I am a wedding & portrait photographer based in Nashville and Knoxville, Tennessee. I am an avid reader, traveler, and learner.

It is important to note that no two photographers are the same - we all have different eye, perceptions, sensitivity and talent that we bring to the table. That is what makes this line of work amazing, we (the photographers) get to make it into what we want.

My Philosophy

I look past the obvious - close observation and engagement of the subject is my process. The challenge is to see beyond the distraction of the conspicuous to capture its unique self. The little details that others may miss, I won’t. My favorite things to shoot are the little things - fire escapes between buildings, little lace details on a wedding dress, tiny little hands and feet. Those are the things that we so easily look over or think nothing of in our day to day life, but when you go back and look at my images I want you to think to yourself, “I didn’t even realize that detail or that she was taking this.” Those are the moments and memories that are most precious, the ones we don’t even realize are happening. 

I value all my clients and my goal is for them to always feel completely confident and comfortable. I bring an element of ease and thoughtfulness to the day that not everyone does. When you invest in me you are not only investing in a photographer, but in someone who truly wants to celebrate with you and wants to befriend you. This is not purely a business relationship. I do not see my clients as just clients – you invite me into important and intimate moments. I honor the trust you place in me and like to leave each shoot feeling that both of us have gained a friend.

Yes! Even if I am booked for your wedding day I would still LOVE to be part of your journey even just for engagement pictures. I love capturing love so I would never pass up the opportunity. 

Can I bring bring my dog? Can we bring props?

Of course! I would be a little sad if you didn’t bring your dog. With props think outside of the box! Blankets, books, and hats are some fun ones my clients have brought in the past.
