The thing about Katy is her smile.
It’s always there and always on and usually accompanied by a laugh.
That’s the thing that we remember most about this wonderful young lady, who we have known almost since the time when we first moved to Knoxville almost 20 years ago. We watched her grow up and excel in high school and college. She even babysat our son Grant when he was small.
And last year we got to photograph her wedding.
There is no greater honor that when someone we know asks us to preserve the memories of one of the most important days of their life. And when it’s someone as special as Katy, whose parents John and Anne are some of our oldest and dearest friends in Knoxville, all the better.
And what a day it was. Conceived completely by Katy from ideas she gleaned from Pinterest, it was a unique blend of contemporary and nostalgia. Her dress and veil were straight out of the 1940s and just adorable. The reception, which took place on the Star of Knoxville Riverboat, was a hoot.
It was one of the most enjoyable weddings we have ever had the privileged of photographing, and we hope that comes out in the images.
By the way, Katy is writing a blog about her and Erik’s life as newlyweds. Be sure to check it out.
