Before providing wedding photography in Dandridge, TN, Shane and Tia were high school sweethearts…. Shane was a freshman and Tia was a senior, which caused a little scandal at their small school. Right before Tia went off to college to study Photo journalism they broke up.
They both tried to move on but something always pulled them back together. So during Shane’s senior year he proclaimed his love and they were reunited… but long distance.
One day they made their way to the beach and got their car stuck in the sand. After hours of trying to get it out they made their way back home. Shane was driving and said he needed to stretch his legs so around midnight they went on a walk. All of a sudden Tia realized they were in a garden with lights down the path. Communion was set up and Shane said they should take it together. They made their way to a pedestal that had a ring box on it while their song “All my life” started playing. Shane retrieved the ring and went down on one knee…..
Turns out their friends had convinced the security guard at the Rose Garden to keep it open. Shane had called them to set it all up on their way over.
They were married in a gorgeous garden in 2003. They had two adorable children who made their family complete. The beautiful Smoky Mountains has been their home for 9 years and they have been photographing weddings for 16 years.
