Hello, I'm Dolly and I am honored you are here visiting my little neck of the world wide web!
Photography has always been an interest of mine, but I had no idea how my life would change when my grandparents gifted me my first REAL camera in 2006. My hobby quickly picked up steam, and before I knew it, I booked my first official session with a newly engaged couple. Despite a case of butterflies, I realized that nothing had felt easier my entire life than photographing that first sweet couple.
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. Whether we are capturing your engagement or chronicling your 45th wedding anniversary, every click of my shutter is done so with anticipation and purpose.
So let's chat about your love story over coffee, tea, or Facetime and discuss your dream wedding and how I can serve you!

I specialize in fun, bold, and vibrant photos that help capture the real emotions that will embody your wedding day. I will provide digital images in an online gallery, and a photo release for you to print off your favorite photos from your big day! My main goal is to make sure you have images which will make you smile in the years to come! A very important note I always like to add is you, the client, are hiring me specifically for my photography style. Please trust that I will send over the best-curated images to you that best reflect your wedding day. I will not re-edit my work once I send over the final gallery, and I will not permit you (legal purposes) to re-edit my work (therefore I will not deliver RAW files).
My most popular wedding collection includes your fully edited images (between 700-800 images), two photographers, and at least 7 hours of coverage to help capture your day! If I am needed for a longer period (over 7 hours) it is $200 extra per hour (final payment is due ONE week before your wedding date, and if for some reason it is decided I am needed longer at your wedding, the additional per hour balance will be due before I can release final images). Please contact me to schedule your consultation!

"Dolly was friendly, smart, interactive, HELPFUL, and made us
look like models. She was so sweet to all of our family and friends and made everyone feel comfortable (and look amazing) in the photos. She also let us do our bridal
shoot after the wedding and traveled all around Nashville with us to take mural shots. She stuck to our budget and delivered fantastic products! She's one of the best
"Dolly took our wedding photos in Nashville May 2018, not only did she take superb photos but her upbeat joyful attitude put everyone at ease and created some wonderful true to character photographs!
I’d highly recommend Dolly for any official photo shoots 😀
Thank you so much Dolly!!"
"She worked well with us on a last minute time crunch and did nothing but be exceptionally awesome to my family and me. She gave us the perfect wedding + family portraits. A great experience with a great photographer."
"Dolly is truly one of the most genuine, kind-hearted people I know. She is incredibly easy to work with. Prior to booking her for our engagement session and wedding, we grabbed coffee and got to know each other. If anyone has been through engagement pictures and wedding pictures, it’s easy to understand that it
can sometimes feel and be awkward in front of a camera while you’re trying to be “lovey dovey” and a stranger is on the other side. Dolly made a great effort to get to know each of us a little bit prior to the shoot, which made it so much better! Her turn around time on getting us our engagement pictures was so quick! The pictures are truly breath taking and will be cherished for a lifetime. I would recommend Dolly to my dearest and closest friends, so obviously I recommend her to anyone and everyone. Dolly’s a Saint-you will have a wonderful experience and beautiful pictures!"
"Dolly is incredible, so talented and sweet. I recently got married and Dolly was our photographer for the day. We had a limited budget but Dolly was
willing to sit down and talk with us to discuss our needs. She's very patient and understanding.
She was not just our photographer. Dolly went above and beyond to make sure that the day would go smoothly and as stress free as it could be. Way way way before the wedding, Dolly would meet with us in person to chat and to get to know each other. It made the day less awkward. It definitely didn't feel like a stranger was just staring at us with a camera, it felt like a friend was taking our pictures! She also worked with us on a timeline that was a lifesaver on the wedding day. My husband and I thought of Dolly as our semi wedding coordinator. She's so on top of her things!
Definitely book Dolly!!!! She will be your friend through the whole wedding planning craziness (we were so not organized and Dolly, being the boss mom, definitely kept us on track).
We love Dolly!"
