Joe and Kathleen are a husband and wife team of wedding photographers. Based in Knoxville, Tenn., we specialize in earthy and intimate weddings with an organic, timeless, and romantic quality. We have photographed more than 500 weddings since 2008.
We create honest, light-filled images to tell stories in a classic, fine-art approach. Think of us as your narrator, telling your story through the images of your day.
