A First Look to Remember: Tamara and Jeff's Epic Bridal Session

Updated: Mar 29

Are you ready for a love story with a twist? Let me tell you about Tamara and Jeff. They were looking for something a little different when it came to their wedding photography. The package they purchased included an engagement session, but they'd already had engagement photos done before they met me. So instead, they wanted to do a bridal session... here’s the twist.

Tamara had her heart set on having the romantic wedding day couple portraits against the backdrop of downtown Chattanooga. Conveniently, their venue, The Church on Main, is downtown and close to several beautiful photo spots. But Jeff really didn't want to be pulled away from the party on the day of the wedding. It was what he was looking forward to the most... besides marrying the love of his life, of course!!

So what did we do? We came up with a plan! A couple of weeks before their wedding, on the day of Tamara's hair and makeup trial run, we met up in downtown Chattanooga beside the Hunter Museum. Jeff wore his wedding day attire, too. And we did their first look! We put Jeff in place with his back turned, and the view off the bluff towards the Walnut Street Bridge made an incredible backdrop for the moment he turned around and saw how stunning his gorgeous bride looked in her beautiful gown of tulle and lace from Ever After Bridal in Chattanooga.

Of course he was speechless. Just look at the vision standing there before him!!!

Afterwards, we roamed around the area to take some of those beautiful bridal and romantic portraits that Tamara had be dreaming of.
