Brittany + Preston have known each other most of their lives. They grew up near Chattanooga, went to high school together, and started dating in 10th grade… And the rest is history. They’re getting married this fall at Patten Chapel, then partying afterwards at The Chattanoogan, and I’m so excited to share their downtown Chattanooga engagement photos!
As soon as we met these two, we could tell they were kind, friendly, and pretty much down for anything. Brittany is gorgeous, and so, so sweet and friendly. As soon as you meet her, you feel like you’ve known her forever. Preston laughs often, and he’s got that kind of easygoing personality that just makes everyone around him comfortable. It’s so, so fun for us when we find so much in common with our couples – these two are so easy to get along with, and by the end of our session we ended up standing around and chatting until well after sunset. (We were the last cars in the parking lot which led to an interesting mixup when someone accidentally tried to get in our car…) Their wedding is going to be filled with family, classic details, and probably a lot of laughter, and we’re so excited!
We started their session in downtown Chattanooga – around the bridges, the river, the art museum… And seriously, I don’t think I’ve ever adequately expressed how much I love shooting in Chattanooga. It photographs so beautifully, and there’s so much to shoot in such a small area. It’s pretty much a wedding photographer’s dream. After we finished taking photos in downtown Chattanooga, we headed over to a park near Brittany’s sister’s house and HOLY MOLY am I glad I know about this park now. We’ve shot on Sunset Rock in Chattanooga before, but these bluff views… Oh my goodness. Just a few minutes’ walk from the parking lot and you come upon these stunning and super epic cliffs, and let’s just say that was the point in our session when I had my typical “look at the back of my camera and have a meltdown” moment.
Brittany + Preston, we’re so excited for your wedding, and we’re so excited to be a part of this season of your life together! Enjoy just a few of my favorites from this downtown Chattanooga engagement session!!
