Blake + Paige Sweet Sunrise Engagement Shoot // Downtown Nashville

I love it when I get to work with other creative souls. They’re always up for doing something totally different… like a sunrise engagement shoot!

Blake and Paige have been dating for more than ten years, so their engagement was a long time coming! I met Paige through a women’s entrepreneur group that’s based in Nashville. She runs her own jewelry company, Paige Barbee Jewelry. I had the awesome opportunity to collaborate with Paige on a styled wedding shoot, and I fell in love with the jewelry that she custom made for it… so much so that I bought it myself. Seriously, this girl is so talented. And kind. Blake, you’ve got a real gem of a gal here!

We started their shoot at sunrise (I won’t tell you how many cups of coffee were consumed…) on the pedestrian bridge in downtown Nashville, and then as the day progressed we made our way around town. We stopped at 3rd and Lindsley, because it’s one of their favorite venues to see live shows together in town. We got some outdoor shots at Ellington Agricultural Center, and then we needed to grab some photos with the skyline. Just in case you ever need a perfect backdrop of the Nashville skyline, I’m just saying that the top of a parking deck is THE place to go. Like I said, sometimes you just have to think outside the box and do something totally different—and for us, it turned out wonderfully!

These two are getting married in Savannah, Georgia, and their ceremony will be in a coffee shop. How cool is that? I’m so happy for them, and couldn’t be more grateful to be a part of this exciting new chapter in their lives!

Congratulations, Blake and Paige!
