I first met Alexandrea at David’s Bridal in Franklin, TN when she was trying on wedding dresses. She looked so stunning in each dress she tried on, and I knew immediately she would be a gorgeous in any photo. I was thrilled when she choose me to photograph her engagement session at Centennial Park in Nashville, TN.
Centennial Park is gorgeous year-round, and we’ve had a mild autumn and warm winter. Although it was December, our engagement session could not have taken place on a nicer day. Bright and sunny without a cloud in the sky.
We started our engagement session at the beautiful lake, right across from the Parthenon.
Alexandrea is absolutely stunning and radiant, and love radiated from Darius as he gazed and spoke to her. Though they’ve been together for years now, they still flirt and joke as if they’ve only met. Their love is true, and just watching them together, you can see that it’s true love.
I have an obsession with willow trees, and the lake around the Parthenon is surrounded by beautiful, mossy willow trees that offer gorgeous light.
Now, this is my favorite spot. With the Parthenon in the distance, the lush trees make you feel like you’re in another world. A world full of love, lightness and beauty.
We stepped over to an older willow tree, its leaves a mix of brown, light green and darker green. Right by the water, Alexandrea and Darius laughed and enjoyed a private moment and I faded into the background. Their eyes are only for each other, and it’s a beautiful thing.
We tried a fun pose of piggy back style. It was fun and really adorable.
Alexandrea pulled her fiance along as we walked along the pathway.
The sweet couple rested a moment and enjoyed the scenery around the lake, and a view of the Parthenon. Since it’s the end of fall, the golden trees added a gorgeous sight.
We found a bridge in the park, made of rustic rocks.
And nearby, we found a small cove that shielded us from the sun. It was the perfect place for a resting place. Serene and magnificent.
We practiced some dancing to very bad love music that I found on YouTube, and Darius and Alexandrea practiced the art of dipping. It was a lot of fun!
We ended our session with a little bit of romance underneath the columns of the Parthenon.
A final serious shot of the beautiful Alexandrea.
