Knoxville Wedding Photographers
Daniel + Martha Howell. Who are we?

We're a husband and wife team who loves to photograph the emotions of weddings, make friends with our clients, and have fun working.

We could live at Starbucks, although Daniel prefers black coffee and Martha likes "girly" drinks like Frappuccinos. We both love listening to the musical genius that is Harry Connick Jr. Our favorite vacation spot is the Big Easy - every time we leave, we know what it means to miss New Orleans. We call Sweetwater home and are happy to be here; it reminds us of where we grew up. Our little family consists of us and two adorable dogs.

Enjoy our blog and checking out our newest work and learning about us in the meantime!

A Trip Down Memory Lane...

*Note - These photos were obviously not taken by us (as we were not alive!). Also, they haven't been retouched - they're presented here as scanned in...Just thought I'd preface...

This first photo is of my grandmother and grandfather on their wedding day. It's the only photo they ever had of the day they said "I Do" - sometimes we forget how important one single photo can be; not just for one person's life - but for their children and their children's children.

They wed in Florida before my grandfather was to be deployed (in WWII). One day my grandmotehr was recalling that day - and what she remembered the best was her brand new alligator pumps. SHOES! :) I love it.

I hope you enjoyed these and remember to never forget the value of a photo!

Love these! And the coloring back then, funny how we mimic these with actions. Trip down memory lane, what a neat idea!

Wow, those are great photos. I just scanned some of my grandparents photos to put online. It is amazing how one photo can mean so much.
