Merri and John | Anniversary in Cades Cove | Maryville Portrait Photographer

Merri and John enjoy coming to the Great Smoky Mountains and what better place to celebrate their 20th anniversary than in Cades Cove.  We had fun photographing this lovely couple!  We stopped at several places throughout Cades Cove.  Tipton Place has a lovely old home with lots of character.


Tipton Place has several buildings at its location. Merri and John were enjoying their session!


Sparks Lane is always a wonderful place in Cades Cove.  The views are magnificent!



Having forgot to bring along a wedding photograph with them, I was able to have them hold an empty picture frame and later insert their wedding image into the frame.  This lovely setting is Cable Mills in Cades Cove.



The weathered wood on the historic buildings in Cades Cove adds texture to any image.  Thank you Merri and John for allowing us to photograph you!  We had a wonderful time getting to know you.

    We too enjoyed spending time with both of you! We were little nervous at first but you made us feel at ease and comfortable. Allowing the session to be enjoyable by both of us! The whole experience from booking the appointment to the photographing session was seemless. We highly recommend your services!
