Chad and Alice met in their home city, in an urban downtown area where professionals work and play. It was a chance encounter where both of them were in the right place at the right time and they’d unknowingly find each other! Fast forward to current day, Chad proposed in the same place they met and it was a resounding yes! It wasn’t long after that, we’d be doing this marvelous and romantic Downtown Nashville engagement photo session!

Yup, there was a Predators game later that day, explains the two canaries in the background. I was mindful of that on other photos, but there was a radiance about Alice and Chad that made this photo special.

The best view of the city! On the way up, I was telling them about the flood in 2010 and the damage it caused. I was proud that Nashvillians banded together to rebuild. I like serving as a makeshift tour guide in between spots to help make their experience a fun one. Chad and Alice love coming to Nashville.  They wanted their Downtown Nashville engagement photo session to be reminiscent of Nashville, and who they are as a couple.  In simple documentary storytelling form.

That magic golden hour as the sun was setting behind the buildings.

The whole vibe of my documentary approach to engagement photos is being a fly on the wall following the couple and documenting their fun day. No one can question how well connected this couple is, photos don’t lie.

We were to finish up getting the couple dancing at their favorite downtown Nashville establishment, Rippy’s.  I almost wasn’t allowed in because I had a backpack and new house rules. Well, me and my trusty Fuji was able to get in and leave the backpack with the manager. Thankfully they were accommodating to Chad and Alice! Was a pleasure, and am excited to show of these great engagement photos of these fine people! Congratulations Alice and Chad!
