I’ve known Dayna for several years, and she has been a valuable part of my team since she started helping me with PR, technical, social media, and a host of other daily business tasks. When she first started working with me remotely from Michigan. her native state, she knew her goal was to end up in Nashville with her long-time boyfriend Josh, who needed a change of pace (and weather). Josh and Dayna met in college through mutual friends and now celebrate 10 years together! The world has turned a few times since the beginning; now they are both here and thriving in their careers, and decided to make their commitment official. I was honored to document part of their afternoon while doing some sweet and organic Shelby Park engagement photos.

One might ask, how does a documentary engagement session work? At a wedding, it’s a moving event, and can be done completely unposed. In a controlled setting like this, it works much the same way. I give a few tips at the beginning as needed and let the couple drive the bus for the most part. They tend to relax and interact, more in their own element. It’s as if I’m a fly on the wall documenting their day out. I was glad to be a part of Josh and Dayna’s evening, and I am excited for their future!
