I'm Dolly — a Nashville based family & branding photographer AND a systems + workflow educator (and Podcast Host) for creatives who want to be more streamlined and organized with Systems, Workflows & SOPS to better impact the backend of their businesses. I'm here to help you look awesome (for your photos) & feel great about workflows!
Honestly, it was incredibly hard narrowing down “several” photos to share from Hannah + Jake’s Barn at The Beautiful Barn at Sycamore Farm’s wedding for the blog (let’s just say I had to narrow it down from over 1500 photos!) But I wanted to let everyone see some highlights of their picture-perfect January wedding, and hopefully, you can tell by these photos how EXCITED Jake was to get to marry his sweet Hannah!
1-Hannah had a first look with her father. I’m not going to lie, I was sobbing behind my camera because of how much Hannah’s father was crying getting to see his girl on her wedding day!
2- Jake and Hannah’s first look made me cry as well (I just cry non-stop I guess) They exchanged vows and gifts before the ceremony and it was a highlight for me as a photographer because they laughed non-stop and it really made for some great photos (in general I highly recommend doing a first look before the ceremony begins because it just saves so much time for the wedding timeline and it gives the bride and groom some time to spend together before the day begins)
3- Their cake was the best wedding cake I have ever eaten in my life (I am not even being dramatic, I am going to go to that shop to buy a smaller version of that cake for myself so that my husband and I can eat it together-hah!)
4- Their whole wedding party was fun to work with! Hannah and Jake were literally surrounded by such a great tribe of supportive friends and family members. It was very evident how loved they are!
5- Hannah and Jake chose Draper Jewelers because that is where Jake’s parents got their rings too!
