Hi everyone! My. name is Dolly and I am a Nashville-based family, elopement, & branding photographer. In addition to my photography business, I also wear the hat of a business educator & encourager.
I love serving families, eloping couples, and business owners with timeless, radiant photography which I know family units will enjoy passing down from generation to generation. I love capturing the joy and emotion in both digital and film photos. My style would be described as bright, colorful and cheerful.
While wearing "ten thousand" hats for my photography business, I have discovered that I have a heart for serving the larger business community. I love sharing my knowledge of tools like Pinterest, email marketing, and time management with fellow business owners in an encouraging and supportive way through Pinterest 1:1 training, helpful blog posts, and showing business owners how to best navigate the waters of social media with different tools.
My faith and love for my little family motivate me to help other business owners find the joy and freedom that I have found in running a successful small business.
So whether you are here to find a photographer, or you are here to receive business encouragement, I am SO honored you have stopped by! I hope to serve you soon!
I have a major sweet tooth (I am surprised my teeth haven’t rotted and fallen out of my mouth yet). If I could, I would live off of donuts, cookies, and pie.
My sweet husband always looks up local donut shops for our family vacations because he's just awesome and he gets me! (My favorite donut of all time is an Old Fashioned Maple Donut!)
i heart donuts
i love the rocky movies
"You're gonna eat lightning and you're gonna crap thunder" (Mick) is my most favorite quote from the Rocky movies. I love these movies so much because my husband and I watch these together, and I am looking forward to sharing this classic series with my son when he gets older! (Oh and if you're wondering, Rocky III is my current favorite)
I grew up in Bozeman, Montana (aka Big Sky Country). I had an adventurous upbringing and because of that I love hiking, exploring, and being outdoors. My love for Montana is deep, and one of my hopes and dreams is to one day own a home in Montana so that my own son can get to know this amazing state!

One of my biggest goals in life is to shepherd my son well and to show him the love of God on a daily basis. I am a firm believer that my son is on loan from God (a blessing) so I want to make sure to treat him as a blessing and a gift everyday.
My husband and I are so thrilled we get to be his parents, and we are loving getting to watch him grow and develop into such a cool little human!
I value family
Capturing the brilliance and radiance of families, couples and business owners in their unique seasons makes me come alive. I have so much joy when I get to serve families sweet couples, and business owners with my craft and skill of photography.
Every part of what I do is intentional to ensure I can take the time to understand your vision and build trust. I believe your life does not happen on accident, and neither should your beautiful photos.
Because you are investing in me I want you to have an incredible and joyful experience.
Whether we are chronicling your family's story, photographing your intimate elopement, or capturing the message behind your brand, every click of my shutter is done so with anticipation and purpose.
Childhood fades into memories and kids are consistently changing. Yet the magic of a photograph is the ability to relive that moment. I love spending time with each client, so when their session rolls around, I have a deep understanding of how to capture the inside jokes, the warmth of their handhold, the joy in their love for one another. Creating thoughtful heirlooms is a joy that I’m honored to help you curate.
