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!

Winners of Round #2

It was close, but everyone's favorite proposal story was from Couple #3, so they have won a free engagement session. Thanks so much to all those who participated!

Couple #3

For my marriage proposal, my fiance made me truly feel like a princess. We took a short trip to Disney during January and I had been insisting that we had to watch the fireworks at least once while we were there. Though he completely did not want to watch the fireworks, I was not going to let him have his way on this one because there is just something magical about them there. Come to find out, the theme of the fireworks show right now is wishes. So once they had talked about a dream is a wish your heart makes, my fiance looked over at me to ask me what my wish was. I told him that I couldn't tell him or it might not come true. He looked over at me and told me that he could make it come true and got down on one knee! I didn't believe him at first, but when he pulled out the ring it couldn't be mistaken! I was so surprised! We got congratulated by the people around us, and I know believe that the fireworks truly are "magical". I completely felt like a Disney Princess that night!!

Natalie and Lonnie's Wedding - Part I

There were so many fabulous moments during Natalie and Lonnie's wedding, that this post will be broken into two parts. WARNING - there will be a TON of pictures!

Lonnie & Natalie wed in Townsend at a beautiful wedding chapel. Natalie's gown was exquisite - and her accessories complimented it perfectly. Natalie decorated the reception site herself, turning it into a haven of candles. Enjoy these images!

Natalie bought a beautiful pendant on Ebay and then turned it into this stunning necklace:

Dana and Jonathan's E-Session

Dana & Jonathan's engagement session took place on an extrememly rainy Saturday afternoon! However, Daniel often tells people he likes to make lemonade - so he took the rain ("lemons") and worked with it - hopefully their wedding day, coming up in April will be sunny and bright!
