I LOVE a bride and groom photo shoot that takes place outside of the normal time (which is usually before or after the wedding ceremony when every one at your wedding is on a time crunch). So, I was absolutely delighted to be able to photograph Shannon and Doug at the Knoxville Botanical Gardens and the Oliver Hotel early on the day of their wedding (which would take place at a wedding Chapel in the Smokies/Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area)!
If you are crunched for time on the day of your actual wedding, or perhaps doing an elopement, or if you just want to have a little (okay, A LOT!) extra time to do your bride and groom portraits, then scheduling a day before/day after/etc session is an amazing way to get some of those shots you want without the added pressure of doing them during the actual wedding itself.
Don't just take my word for it! Check out these awesome photos from their pre-wedding photo shot (again... at the Knoxville Botanical Gardens and the Oliver Hotel (which is in historic downtown Knoxville).
