Senior Shoots

Some of my favorite photo sessions are senior shoots. These young ladies and young men most always love to have their picture taken (thus the selfies!) They are fun, resilient, and up most for most anything, even willing to get dirty in some of the not so elegant of locations!

The following are a couple of senior shoots we did in 2016 with details on the shots and locations.

This is Payton. We took these in downtown Bristol,TN in an awesome graffiti alley and at an abandoned warehouse. Loved this shoot!

 

This is Hiyjah. We took these at the VA in Johnson City, TN. Love the Fall Colors. She is such a sweetheart!

 

This is Alena. These were taken in downtown Greeneville, TN at an abandoned warehouse dock. It had a creek that ran behind it and these large rocks. It was a gorgeous place to shoot with this young lady!

I love my job, I love being able to offer my clients affordable, beautiful, one of a kind images that they love! Are you a Senior or do you have a Senior and need Photos? Visit us here: www.nandnphotoshoot.com

Happy New Year!

A Maternity Session by the River

My husband and I recently shot a Maternity Session by the Nolichucky River in Limestone, TN. Just one town over from where we live. This sweet couple, we met at a wedding that we photographed over this past summer. The white dress she bought online and the flowers and head wreath were made by my sweet and crafty sister law. The mother to be’s makeup was done masterfully, by my own personal makeup artist, Justine Faatuai.

My husband wanted to shoot from a boat in the river, so he did! I regret not getting a photo of him in the kayak shooting. I was trying to not get him in my shots while I was shooting their portraits with the river in the background, respectively. I didn’t want to be photo shopping him out later!

I really enjoyed this shoot and was able to pose romantically, sweet, and dreamy.

It is a beautiful and magical time for a family to be having a baby. It was an honor for us to take these photos for these sweet and endearing couple. To see the complete shoot, you can follow this link: gallery.nandngallery.com  -Nichole Whitburn, N&N Photography www.nandnphotoshoot.com

Wedding Day Details

 

I love to shoot wedding day details! The bouquet, the shoes, the rings, the boutonniere, etc. As a matter of fact, it is my personal favorite thing to shoot on the wedding day. I have always loved shooting macro photography and being a wedding photographer, shooting the details gives me a chance to do this on a personal level for my client.

I always ask the bride to have her wedding planner or the friend/family member who is decorating or helping in the wedding planning process, to have the brides bouquet, the rings, an invitation or announcement, and any additional details that she would like to have photographed, ready for me when I arrive at the venue. I then photograph these small details before any action begins at all so that they can be returned quickly to the bride and groom while they are getting ready.

I will sometimes have the opportunity to photograph other details during the reception when the bride and groom are eating and mingling with guests. I try to take some creative shots of the bouquet in areas where there is a beautiful and winning background. I will also walk around the entire venue getting those very important wedding and reception details shots.

I love letting my creativity and vision shine through my wedding photography and no matter what your genre of art, always let your own personal creativity shine through.-Nichole Whitburn -N&N Photography

Having an Outdoor Wedding? Where is the Sun?

As wedding photographers we are always chasing the light, searching for the best light and creating light with flash photography. Editing photographs today from a wedding we had recently shot outside; we saw a huge problem that we felt needed to be addressed at the root of the cause.

We love sunset weddings and they are very beautiful if the gazebo, arbor, seating, and ceremony spot are in a shaded area and not in direct sunlight or facing the direction of the sun.

Wedding Ceremony Tip: When you rent and are setting up your outside venue; pay attention to the time of day and where the sun will be at the time of your ceremony. You don’t want to be walking down the aisle with the sun in your eyes, in the eyes of your quests, everyone squinting through the ceremony, and Aunt Betty getting a bad sunburn. -Nichole Whitburn           www.nandnphotoshoot.com

 

The Cost of Wedding Photography; The Priceless Investment in Memories

nn-photography-24

Just the thought of the cost of a wedding is daunting to most anyone. Most young women grow up dreaming of the fairy-tale wedding: the magnificent flowers, the ornate cake, the jaw-dropping designer dress, the cathedral, beach, or sunset. They think of all these things and the truth about all of these things is that they cost money.

Today’s weddings are steering away from the tradition that the brides family are those who will cover the cost. In this new and modern world we live in, the bride and groom are paying for nearly everything. Especially if it is the second or third time around and that’s okay. However, those who are on a limited budget and are paying for all of it themselves, are very careful about where they spend their money. You think about all of the things that you have to buy to make yourself and our venue beautiful and satisfying for your quests: the food, favors, flowers, decorations, cake, etc.

Most everything that has been bought and paid for for your special day is mostly all consumable or of one use or wear. And after the food is eaten, the flowers expire, everyone goes home, and the rentals are returned; what is it that will last forever other than your memories of the day? Your wedding day photography! Your beautiful images of all the important moments from your special day! Photographs of all the details, of the flowers, your dress, the cathedral, your hair, your makeup, the first dance, the beautiful cake, the first kiss as husband and wife, the amazing fun and laughter at the reception. One day that can not be recreated. Your wedding photography album is the only thing that will last and span generations for you and your families enjoyment.

Wedding photography package pricing can seem expensive at first glance, however when you are making a decision on wedding photography, think about why wedding photography is important to you and what you are looking for in a photographer. Also remember that you are paying a professional for their time, to capture all of those important moments as they unfold, and to edit and deliver them to you as beautifully packaged works of art. Some photographers offer payment plans to pay for your wedding photography package with payments over the course of your engagement, up until your wedding day. And if your wedding day is a year or longer away, you can start a savings plan for your wedding photography.

A Final Thought: The one most important thing to remember, is that your wedding photography should never be a place to cut back on when it comes to your budget. Your wedding day photographs are timeless memories of your love and memories are irreplaceable.
