I had the pleasure of meeting Tim on a job two years ago while photographing a campaign for Gulf Shores | Orange Beach. We had the opportunity to work together again in Nashville the following year. I was beyond excited when he called and asked me to shoot his wedding.

It wasn’t long before Tim and his fiancé Caitlin drove up to Nashville for their engagement session. Once I had the chance to meet her, I was even more excited than before. Tim and Caitlin are both very special and kind—they’re the type of people you just like being around. Good folk… as we say in the South.

Now, close your eyes. Picture a beautiful, southern wedding hosted at a traditional grand estate near the coast of Alabama—and you’re there. The gates opened up to reveal a picturesque drive up to Caitlin’s family home. Close family and friends were gathered there to celebrate the couple’s love of one another. Every detail was handled with simple elegance. As the day unfolded, guests enjoyed beautiful flowers, friendly company, a ceremony that brought tears of joy, a menu with southern flair and a dance floor that got a lot of attention.

Tim says Caitlin is beautiful inside and out. When he is with her, his life is complete. He loves the little noises she makes, that she makes him laugh at any time and how she’s his best friend and they can talk about anything.

Caitlin is in awe of Tim’s patience, kindness and work ethic. She says he’s the most selfless person you’ll ever meet and that he always puts everyone else before himself. She loves that he can quote every movie on earth and that he sings Taylor Swift with her. In her eyes, he makes everything about her better and inspires her to be a better person every day.

This was truly such a special day. Thank you Tim and Caitlin for letting me play such a small part in the start of your amazing journey to come.
