Today is an exciting day for some courageous children and their families in #Nashville, and I'll be part of the volunteer photography team photographing their evening! ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿ’—
A group of children who are battling life-threatening illnesses will be treated to a glamorous Red Carpet Magic event at the @omninashville through Divas and Dudes, a nonprofit organization that gives children who are battling severe illnesses a chance to shine! โœจโœจ
This first-time event includes hair and makeup, a photo shoot, dinner and entertainment (I've heard through the grapevine that some superheroes and other celebrities will be there)! ๐Ÿ‘Œ
I'll be photographing these children through @flashesofhope, the nonprofit that provides free professional portraits to children and families who are battling life-threatening illnesses. Proceeds benefit Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt. โœจ
I'll be posting some behind-the-scenes today from the event when I can, so be sure to follow along! ๐Ÿ˜Š
There's a big list of community sponsors and volunteers coming together to celebrate these children and create some happy memories, and I'm grateful to be part of it! ๐Ÿ™
Hug your loved ones and don't take a single thing for granted, friends. Happy Monday! โ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธ

We may have had rain all morning and thunderstorms in the forecast, but the downpour stopped just in time for Michelle and Justin's outdoor wedding ceremony and pictures with the most stunning view of rolling hills at the beautiful White Dove Barn! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
Michelle carried a locket on her bouquet with photos of her Uncle Ron and her beloved dog Bruno, both of whom passed away recently, and there was also a chair reserved for her uncle, with a white rose and candle in remembrance. ๐Ÿ’—
These special touches are just two examples of how Michelle and Justin made the day their own, and it was just an all-around genuine, loving event with so much joy and celebration for this happy couple, with all the details planned and coordinated by @velourevents. ๐Ÿ’—โ˜€๏ธ
You can see a few more photos on my IG stories, and a full highlight preview is coming soon to my blog! ๐Ÿ‘โœจ

Chelsea and Stephen were just friends for a year before they started dating and realized they wanted to spend their lives together. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—
.
Chelsea told me about one of their first dates together, when Stephen surprised her on the last day of her first year of nursing school: "Stephen drove up to Love Circle and went back to his trunk. He brought out champagne flutes and champagne, along with a movie preloaded on his iPad. It was super romantic and so unexpected!" โœจโœจ
High five to Stephen for being such a romantic!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
.
We went to downtown #nashville for their urban engagement session, and they brought along their goldendoodle, Paisley! (Dogs are always welcome at engagement sessions!) ๐Ÿถ .
While the day turned out to be overcast, we had about a minute of magical golden sun rays at the end of the evening on our way back to the car! โ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธ
.
Swipe through to see a few more shots from their session, including one of Paisley - seriously, she's the cutest pup! You'll also see my personal favorite shot from their engagement session. ๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐Ÿ”ฅ .
One more thing: Chelsea brought me a bouquet of flowers for rescheduling their engagement session due to weather (it rained like crazy the weekend before). It was absolutely not expected or necessary, but it was just another affirmation that my couples are the most thoughtful, sweet, genuine people, and I'm grateful to be capturing their love stories! ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿ‘
.
I'm beyond excited for this couple's spring wedding at the @clementinenashville in Nashville! 
Happy Wednesday! โ˜€๏ธ

"Put your ass where your heart wants to be." - Steven Pressfield, from his new book "The Artist's Journey.
.
This is one of my favorite quotes from Pressfield's new book, which talks about moving past self-sabotage and living your authentic calling, no matter what kind of work you do. Basically he's saying to just get your butt to work and stop thinking and worrying. Can you relate? ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ
.
Pressfield also wrote one of my all-time favorite business books "The War of Art," which is full of inspiring practical advice about just doing the hard, non-glamorous work to reach a goal instead of thinking about it (which is harder than it sounds, am I right?). ๐Ÿ‘€
.
Lots of people, especially creative entrepreneurs, tend to think and dream, but ACTION (making that phone call, sending that email, practicing that lighting technique) is what really needs to happen.
Marie Forleo (go follow her right now if you don't already!! @marieforleo) describes โ€œThe Artist's Journeyโ€ book this way:
"The value is clear. Spend less time worrying about having everything mapped out perfectly in advance. Instead, show up. Get dirty. Embrace the unknown. Chances are, youโ€™ll tap into something deeper, more expansive and inspired. Rather than feeling forced to express yourself, perhaps youโ€™ll discover something far greater than you could have imagined." โ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธ
.
Pressfield's new book came out yesterday, and I've already listened to it (audiobook, yes!) twice already. It's short and snappy, and it has nuggets of wisdom for anyone who has ever wrestled with procrastination or self-doubt or feeling called to a purpose. โœจ
.
What's one thing you're doing today to move your work ahead? Tell me below! ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ
For me, it's so basic but strangely so hard to stick to: running. I'm running each morning because everything else in my day falls in line and I'm WAY more productive and happy and calm and motivated if I make time for this simple action! ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ .
Have a productive Wednesday, friends! โœจ

Sometimes I love a photo because it's different and light-hearted, like this "in-between" moment when Nathalie and Mike were leaving their home (after taking lots of pictures in the heat) to join their wedding party on a bus to Hillwood Country Club for their wedding reception with drinks and dancing! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฅ‚
True story: I debated so long about whether or not to post this particular shot because it's hard to tell a story in one square. ๐Ÿ‘€
Choosing the right IG post is so difficult for me because it's so limiting. All weddings are stories, and there are so many candid moments along with portrait-y moments and all kinds of moods and situations from throughout the day that make up the whole picture. How to decide on just one?๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ
Do you struggle with this, too? Let me know in the comments, along with any advice on how you choose? ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ
In the end, the photojournalistic, candid moments are part of what I love about weddings, and they're what my clients can expect from me, along with the more traditional shots from each part of the day. ๐Ÿ‘Œ
Swipe through to see a few more pictures (I can't post just one!), and head over to my blog to see many more photos from throughout their beautiful wedding day (link in comments)! Happy Monday! โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Madeline and Andrew first met through Madeline's cousin Trent, who thought these two would get along really well, even through Andrew lived in across the country in Wisconsin! โœจ
And he was right! ๐Ÿ‘Œ
When Andrew came into town to visit Trent one weekend, Madeline and Andrew instantly connected and ended up dancing for hours on Broadway ๐Ÿ’ƒ- but Madeline had to go out of town the next morning. โœˆ๏ธ Andrew flew home, but he couldn't stop thinking about Madeline. He texted her the next day, and for two months straight they texted back and forth until he drove to Nashville for her birthday in April. ๐ŸŽ‚ 
That was their first official date, and after a romantic dinner, they ended up dancing on Broadway again! ๐Ÿ’ƒ 
Madeline and Andrew are getting married in February, which will be two years after that first meeting.๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’
There was a lot of laughter and romance at their engagement session, and I am so thrilled to be photographing this couple's wedding, with planning by the amazing @awgevents !๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

Stories are what we all connect with, and I recently teamed up with the amazingly talented duo @wildflowersllc to tell their story through photographs in a business branding photo shoot! ๐Ÿ“ท๐ŸŒธ
Jessi is a Nashville native who comes from a family of florists, and Alessio is from Venice, Italy. ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น
When they first started dating, Alessio would hunt around to find the most unique wildflowers to give Jessi, and that tradition inspired their business name. ๐Ÿ’—๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿƒ
You canโ€™t help but fall in love with this couple, their personalities, and their incredible work! ๐Ÿ˜
...
For their shoot, they had a vision in mind for cohesive light and airy photos of their lush floral designs for their website, email newsletter and social media. ๐Ÿƒ ๐Ÿ–ฅ 
Along with showcasing their gorgeous floral designs, they also wanted some behind-the-scenes photos of the two of them creating the bouquets and installations, styling tables, and working together as they do every day. ๐Ÿ’—
They came prepared with many different flowers and setups, a mood board, and wardrobe changes, including a gorgeous wedding dress courtesy of @fabulousfrocksnashville . ๐Ÿ’
We did most of the session in my Lenox Village studio, and we took the session outdoors as well to give them different options and a variety of looks. ๐Ÿ‘Œ
Itโ€™s so important in business today to not only show a product, but also to tell the unique story of the people behind the business โ€“ and Jessi and Alessio are the real deal. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
Click through to see a few more of their behind-the-scenes shots, and be sure to follow them at @wildflowersllc - and check out more of the photos from their shoot on my blog (link in the comments)! ๐Ÿ“ท
If you're interested in a branding shoot, contact me and let's talk! I'm passionate about telling stories through photos, including the stories of creative entrepreneurs, who they are behind the scenes, and why they do what they do. โœจ๐Ÿ“ท

Real-life wedding photographer moment, photographing the bride and bridesmaids! This is behind the scenes at Kristen and Chuck's beautiful @longhollowgardens wedding , with planning by @sweetjamesevents . ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ“ท
...
I'm Rebecca, a Nashville wedding photographer going into my sixth year photographing weddings! โœจ
This is what behind-the-scenes at a real wedding (especially an outdoor Tennessee summer wedding) looks like for me, and it includes a lot of sweat! ๐Ÿ’ฆ 
As a wedding photographer, I'm often climbing on a chair to hang a dress, squatting to get a certain angle on a shot, trekking through tall grass for portraits or kneeling in gravel for the ceremony. I'll wipe water off the bride's bouquet stems with my own dress, or move furniture to access pretty window light. It's real, physical work in addition to knowing how to photograph in any lighting condition, and it's all part of capturing each part of the day, keeping up with the fast pace of events, and giving every bit of energy, focus, skill, sweat and positive vibes to make the most of every moment. โœจโœจ
It's the hardest and the most rewarding job I've ever had - and I've had a lot of jobs, including working as a newspaper photojournalist, and as a newspaper and magazine writer and editor! I've also worked as a public relations specialist, English teacher and preschool teacher. ๐Ÿ˜Š
One thing I've learned from all my different jobs is how to relate to many different kinds of people from all walks of life, and also that there's always so much more to every job than we realize. ๐Ÿ‘Œ
Have you worked at a job that was different or interesting or just taught you a lot about life? Comment below! ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

These in-between moments are some of my favorites - the candid shots that give a peek behind the scenes.
