All wedding photographers have bucket list venues that they want to shoot. If they tell you they don't, they're lying. These 2 Knoxville wedding photographers are no exception to the rule, so when Bria and Rob contacted us to shoot their wedding at TWO of our bucket list venues, we were floored. I mean, when does that ever happen?
We met Rob and Bria earlier this year for their engagement session and took some of our favorite photos yet. Almost every client we talk to mentions how they saw the cool JFG silhouette photo and wanted to talk to us about their own wedding. We knew after their engagement session (where we exchanged recommendations for mustard, who has the best bbq, and what spots in ATL were our favorites) that their wedding would be a blast. The thing we love the most about Rob and Bria is how genuinely kind they both are. We felt like we had known them for 10 years easily, which made the entire wedding process so relaxed.
Rob and Bria both got ready at The Standard on Jackson Ave, then we all headed up to The Emporium Center for their ceremony. Afterward, we took the long way around, trailing along under the bridge close to Jackson Terminal for some photos, then back up to The Standard for the reception. R & B did something really cool that I only wish we would have thought of for our own wedding- they ate upstairs, away from their guests. This allowed them to have a small break and celebrate as just husband and wife, but also to be fully prepared to host their guests when they got down to the party. There's nothing worse than greeting people with a mouthful of salad (which, by the way, Rob ate for the FIRST TIME EVER on their wedding day) and not being able to enjoy your food. We'll definitely be recommending that to future couples.
Rob and Bria, you were an absolute delight to photograph. It is evident to everyone you meet how gracious and kind you both are, and we feel honored to have been a part of your day.
