When the ever so sweet photographer, Natalie Zuzart reached out for some business guidance, I knew I had to meet her on her own turf and head to Nashville, Tennessee. We met up for coffee at “Ugly Mugs”, chatted about EVERYTHING wedding photography related from Timelines to Gear, to Pricing and Branding. We stayed there long enough to grab lunch at the same place…good thing I really like coffee shops;) We then headed to my friend’s house where we played around with some editing tricks while my photoshoot models got ready. Yes, I am one lucky gal to have a friend living in Nashville who happens to be gorgeous and willing to be our model…thanks Dana; And even luckier to have a mutual friend tag along to donate her Hair and Makeup expertise, and also show off another gown last minute because it had too pretty of a back to NOT show it off (thanks HMUA Mollie Kae Carrier of Bayfield, Wisconsin and dress designers IVY AND ASTER)!!!
We wanted the evening to be relaxing, simple and sweet, beautiful, and also represent Tennessee at its finest so we chose Arrington Vineyards. The floral arrangements created by the incredibly talented Brooke of Novelty Rose based in Dallas, Texas, could not have been more beautiful!!
Take a peek at a few of the shots I got while mentoring my new friend and one of Tennessee’s rising stars in the wedding photography industry… Natalie of Zuzart Photography.
