Wedding at Old Stone Fort Park in Manchester, TN

With the threat of rain hanging over their heads, this beautiful wedding proceeded with intermittent sunshine and much appreciated brief periods of overcast ness giving a much needed break from the heat.  

Beautiful colors, a beautiful bride, makes a beautiful wedding every time!

I hope you enjoy these images and if your acquainted with the bride and groom, share them with all the families!

Maternity Session with Ana

This young mother was absolutely gorgeous!  She has a little girl and is expecting a little boy, Matteo.  I love the colors and was glad we were able to do them outdoors.

Senior Session with Caleb

I had an awesome Senior Session with Caleb!  We had a great location to shoot at, his grandparents farm, and his session couldn't have been better.  We set up at the top of a hill on the farm to capture the perfect sunset.

I can't believe it's August already!

I logged into my website and saw the date of my last post and kind of gasped!  I can't believe it's already August and I didn't post anything for June and July.  I did a lot of sports photography in June and they took all my time trying to get them finished, delivered, and closed out before Dwane and I left for vacation.  July was vacation month and we went on the most fantastic cruise to the Eastern Caribbean on the Celebrity Equinox.  I haven't even posted vacation photos!  that's how far behind I am.  

This Newborn Session is the first one photographed with my new lighting setup.  I have to say that I am really liking the ease of use and the extra floor space I have with my lights off the stands.

In June, I photographed this beautiful momma in her eighth month of pregnancy.  And now, August 2nd,  I just finished editing all the beautiful images from the newborn session.  Thank you Nikkia and Rafael, for choosing me as your photographer.  It has been a wonderful experience and I hope for many more opportunities to capture images of your beautiful family!

Save the date photo session

This lovely couple was on leave for a few days from the military.  It was a very windy day and not the best for photos but I gave it my all to make beautiful images, despite the wind.  They will be married this fall in Unionville, TN.

Do you have special requests/shots that you would like to do?  I try to make it happen at Kerry Kimmel Photography!

Family Session in the Hollow

I love shooting at the George Dickel Distillery.  They have made multiple improvements to the grounds and I've always enjoyed any session that I've done there.  Still do.  But, our hot, dry, weather has caused the snakes to come out in abundance to get water from the stream that runs through the property.  I'm scared to take children, or adults, along the water because you are bound to see at least one snake and sometimes 3 or more.  And of course, little kids want to get down and run and play and I don't want to take the chance of them running up on a snake and getting bitten!

With Karen and her family, I went to one of my favorite spots on the property that gives you great contrast and color.  And no direct sun!

2017 Senior Girl

This is one gorgeous young lady!  This is not he first time I've photographed Chelsey.  She is a member of the Cascade Marching Band and I also photograph the band every year.  I photographed her at Cascade's Prom this last April.  It wasn't hard to get a good photo of her and she had prepared well for this session with ideas, outfits and of course, her horse!

Love the colors!

Loved the set up for this, it was perfect for her!

Senior Basketball Player

Austin is a senior at Community High School in Unionville, Tn. We were able to take photos inside the their new gym and then we moved onto the grounds of George Dickel, which is near my home. I've shot a lot of sessions near George Dickel but won't be going back until the weather cools off. Snakes are all along the creek bank, coming to the water since it has been so dry in our area. Austin had a great session and his prints turned out wonderfully and I was also able to create a custom Senior Book for he and his family.

Hot Family Session@World Outreach

It was hot on Saturday when I did a family session for George and Carisa DeShields. Their daughter, son-in-law, and new grandbaby were in from Florida. Parker is a doll! The hot, humid weather is rough on everyone's hair but that doesn't stop us from getting sweet pictures of those we love most! Thank you for allowing me to be your photographer. Check out George and Carisa's wedding photos under "Weddings".

Late Senior Session

Casson is a 2016 Senior from Tullahoma High School.  This was my first time to shoot on the school campus and it was a great place to start his session.  We spent about half of his session here and then went to Normandy to the Barton's farm.  

Casson and Mom Danielle were very pleased with what I captured!  I love doing senior photography and creating custom sessions to match the person's interests and personality.  Contact me and let me know what interests you have, what sports do you play, what club are you involved in, or just tell me what you would like to do in your Senior Session and I'll make it happen!

Thanks Casson and Danielle!

Rescheduled from a windy day

We had to reschedule from a very windy day to one not so windy.  This is Danielle and her soon to be extended family.  Beautiful kids and a wonderful mom and dad, can't help but have a beautiful family portrait!

This was a combined Family and Engagement Session, wedding to follow soon!
