Wedding in the Great Smoky Mountains

Ashley Lodge Photography, Rock the Dress, Uncategorized, wedding

Holly Thiele & Andrew Metz are originally from Illinois, where they grew up, met and fell in love! They share a mutual love for rescue dogs, hiking and just being generally good humored and kind. Sounds to me like the foundation for a pretty amazing life together!

Holly and Andrew were married on April 9th, 2015 at The Gatlinburg Mansion, as their family who had flown from all over enjoyed  not only the breathtaking view of the Smokies, but the absolute stunning bride Holly was as well!

Holly and Andrew both wrote heartfelt notes to each other to read after getting ready. Andrew must have written something very sweet because Holly was crying with joy. I’ll bet she couldn’t wait to call that sweetheart her husband!

Of course, the first look is always an emotional time as well, and I was over the moon they chose to do this with such a beautiful view of the smokies behind them.

As the soon to be Mr & Mrs Metz were prepping to say their vows, mom and dad Thiele had a trick up their sleeve! Since Holly & Andrews ‘fur babies’, Arlo and Hope could not attend the ceremony, they placed paw prints down the aisle to symbolize their support in spirit.

A very unique unity ceremony, Holly and Andrew both poured dirt brought in from their home towns into a unity plant and watered it together! Such a fun way to symbolize two families becoming one!

Of course, no Rocky Top wedding is complete without a Rock the Dress session at Grotto Falls!

I had such a great time with these guys! Anna Mae’s Maternity session was so much fun, and I knew then that she and Mitchell would make wonderful parents.  Addison Grace is truly a beautiful blessing. It has been wonderful watching her grow!

I would like to thank Anna Mae & Mitchell for choosing me to capture these early moments. They have a wonderful beautiful family together.

All eyes on: Megan Fouts, aspiring model

Uncategorized

10366220_667846509991388_8507777849048746958_nBefore & After, Megan is stunning either way!

Megan Fouts is a little bit of everything. She is an aspiring model as well as a photographer. A dear friend of mine told me recently “How special when the photographer takes beautiful pictures from both sides of the camera”. I certainly feel this way about Megan and I cannot wait to see her work! Megan did a super cool CSI themed shoot with Anthony SP recently, which you can view here. She is looking for more work and came to me to take advantage of my Shine series grand opening specials (you can read about that here) in the hopes of creating images for her modeling portfolio.

After capturing Megan’s before photo-The beautiful and talented Missy Young did what she does best-enhancing a woman’s beauty while still keeping true to the features that make her gorgeous.

When Missy had finished making Megan look and feel like a runway model-Valerie Hodges got to work on Megan’s hairdo. Valerie is wonderful, not only does she cut my hair, but I trust her to do a beautiful job styling at my studio, which she does
every time!

When she was all glammed up, we headed out to my studio and captured some beautiful images of Megan. I hope you enjoy looking through them as much as we enjoyed creating them!
