I first met Meagan at one of my favorite Nashville wedding venues, Carnton Plantation, while she was coordinating a wedding that I was photographing a few years ago!

UM…. WHAT!? Is it really this time of year again?!

Nashville Wedding Photographers Laura K. Allen Photography & Design Amy & Ben’s engagement session was held on a private estate in Hendersonville, just outside of Nashville, TN.  I hadn’t met them in person yet, but Amy and I had conversed via FaceTime when discussing their wedding photography needs.  On my drive there, I thought about how […]

I blinked and 2015 was over. At least that’s what it feels like, am I right? I have to admit, it took me a few weeks to want to blog about 2015.  As a wedding photographer, I’ve done “this” post each year, and it keeps getting harder!  It’s hard to accurately express the emotions you feel while […]

Happy 2016 from your neighborhood Nashville Wedding Photographer!
