Brian & Holly Engagement Session

Pin It
I love reconnecting with people from my childhood! Especially, when photography brings us together. Recently when looking for a wedding photographer Holly Huey, a friend from Elementary school, stumbled across Caressa Rogers Photography Facebook page and contacted me about being her photographer. This afternoon I spent reconnecting with Holly and getting to know her fiance, Brian, during their engagement session. Check back in a couple weeks for pictures from their special day!

Baylie & Ryan's Engagement Session!

Pin It

Just a couple weeks ago Ryan proposed to Baylie at Parksville Beach on the Ocoee River. Afterwards they met up with friends at Yellow Deli to celebrate. Yellow Deli is located in an urban area of Chattanooga and since Yellow Deli was part of their special day it seemed like a perfect area for their engagement session.
This past fall I had met Baylie though some mutual friends, I knew that she was dating a guy named Ryan. However, it was only recently that I found out that her Ryan was a distant cousin of mine. What a fun surprise! I so enjoyed spending the evening with them. They are obviously crazy about each other and capturing this was such an easy job! Congratulations Baylie and Ryan! I'm excited to have another cousin, Baylie!

Kelly Moore Camera Bag!

Pin It
I bought my first SLR camera in August 2008. At that point I began looking for a stylish camera bag. After much searching I gave up and settled with just a traditional camera bag. It wasn't until just recently when a fellow photography, Melissa Jill, posted on her site that she had just purchased exactly the bag I had been dreaming of! Kelly Moore came up with this amazing bag which accommodates your camera and lenses, while still being stylish! You can guess what I'll be doing in the next couple days!

A New Life

Pin It
At the onset of the summer of 2009 my life was neatly planned out. I had spent a semester in Argentina, which made it necessary for me to take summer classes in order to graduate on track in May of 2010. The plan was going along just fine until August when I began class number 6 of the summer. My advisor had signed me up for the wrong class!!! The class I needed wasn't offered-so discouraging. Now, a semester after that horrible discovery, I realize that God had it all planned. During the next few months after that disappointing day my life as a photographer took off. If you would have told me last summer that I'd have a successful little photography business and that the extra semester required to graduate would be filled with photography classes I would not have believed you. God knew I would be coming into a new passion called photography and He provided the means and the time to immerse myself in it.
One part of this new life is the photography lighting class I'm taking. Throughout the coming months I'll share with you some pics from the assignments. Here are just a few from the most recent one. A special thanks to Brittney MClannahan for modeling!
