About your Foothills Parkway Elopement Wedding Photographer

foothills parkway elopement photographerHi, I am Deanna.

If you are wanting crazy, unique and different, I am your girl. Want to climb to the top of a cliff? Dive into a waterfall? Or travel somewhere basically out of this world?

You’ve found your photographer. Let’s plan your Foothills Parkway Elopement Wedding together!

I am the type of person that truly wants to give each couple images that are the epitome of their relationship, totally, 100% YOU. I am creative, nerdy and all about putting your passions into what’s captured.

My family and I currently live in Knoxville, TN. We’re heavy travelers and try to see as many of God’s creations as we can, on a budget, of course. We’re growing! A handsome little boy came to us in January 2019, and we fell completely in love with the addition to our family, so much so, we decided we needed another one! We welcomed a beautiful baby girl in June 2021.

Your Foothills Parkway Elopement Wedding - How to prepare

When celebrating your Foothills Parkway Elopement Wedding in the Smoky Mountains there are TONS of options for cabins and places to stay, many of the couples I have worked with have a location with a deck where the ceremony takes place if they choose to have people in attendance.

Gatlinburg is a tourist area, and one of the most visited one in the U.S. so there is almost always traffic. The cabins are usually out of the way, but as you’re preparing for your Foothills Parkway Elopement Wedding day, keep that in mind.

I have a full *wedding guide* that I offer to all of my couples with great tips and tricks.
