Meet Ainsley and Brad, two of the most naturally happy people we know.

From our first initial emails/phone calls, I knew Ainsley and I were one of the same. Her voice is animated, she’s polite, respectful, grateful, and clearly a doll. When we first met up, Ainsley and Brad chose Green Cork, a midtown wine garden, and we KNEW then we wanted to marry them both. (Couple Crush) And as if we could possibly love them any more than we already did, they told us they have a golden doodle. SOLD.

When Ainsley waltzed over to us in her form fitting red dress at their engagement session, I questioned whether or not we were the same person. Then after a few minutes of shooting I said “Are you a middle child?” Ainsley looked at me all quizzically and said “yes?” As a middle child, I can usually tell if someone else is also a middle child, and I nailed it this time! All the more reason why we LOVE Ainsley.

Brad’s day job is making Ainsley laugh. Ok, so that isn’t exactly his job title, but he could definitely be a professional at it. Ainsley giggled her way through this entire session.

When these love birds aren’t skipping merrily, hand in hand giggling, you can find them on a walk or at the park with their adorable dog CAMP (who you will see pictured below.)

A lot of exciting things are happening for Ainsley and Brad right now including, an engagement, planning a wedding, and most recently they bought a house together. We are simply thrilled to be a part of their journey!

You guys enjoy these!

Meet Kelsey.

I’ve known Kelsey for about four years now. As a freshman in college, she made the senior girl’s nervous. I totally get it. She’s a babe, and people throw rocks at things that shine. She’s strong, brave, fearless, passionate, kind, and literally glows.

The world needs more Kelseys.

I reached out to her to model for me after reading one of my favorite photographer’s blogs. He made his own backdrop out of an artist canvas he painted. He mentioned craving something uninvolved and simple after a busy year of glorious chaos. I honestly understand the feeling. Weddings are my absolute favorite, really. I love the details, I love seeing my couple’s personalities shine through their wedding day visions, but I too wanted to bring it back to the basics. Kelsey was the perfect model.

Thanks so much, Kelsey, for always being willing to help us out.

Enjoy.

Cedar Hall Tennessee wedding venue wedding photography by Kelly Ginn

You may remember this sweet child, Brynn.

I’m convinced the name Brynn means generosity because Brynn is the kindest most generous person we know. Her positive beaming personality is SO contagious, you can’t help but be ecstatic around her. She loves BIG, passionately, and intensely.

We were beyond happy to do a bridal session for ‘our sweet Brynn.’ We did these only about three weeks before her big day. Unfortunately it was raining, but if it’s going to rain, at least she had a GORGEOUS venue as her back drop. Cedar Hall never disappoints! When we met up with Brynn, we couldn’t help but gasp when we walked up the spiral staircase and saw her dress. It was impeccable and SO Brynn. She wore a beaded veil for this bridal session for her sweet mother who had always dreamed of seeing her wear one. Told you, Brynn can do NO wrong.

We are SO super anxious to show Brynn and Luke’s wedding images, but for now, here’s a few bridal teasers!

Enjoy!

I know you guys remember these guys.

They made a statement with their colored powder engagement session, and I just knew their wedding would be an even bigger statement.

Let me back up a bit.

Ashley and I have known each other since we were little girls. Our dads work together, and our families are good friends. Jimmy and Toni (Ashley’s wonderful parents) are the owners of VMweddings Studio. There aren’t enough words for how much we absolutely adore the Woodard family. Jimmy and Toni almost feel like parents to us. They always have our best interest at heart, they give great advice, they work around our spastic selves (and that’s NO easy job), and they treat each other and anyone around them with the upmost respect. Their marriage inspires us, and I am positive that it inspires Ashley and Clay.

Ashley and Clay have been planning this BEAST of a wedding (and I mean that as the highest compliment) for what seems like forever. All of their hard work (with their family’s help) paid off. The Woodard and Presley family were kind enough to include John and I in their rehearsal dinner. It’s so rare for us to sit back and take things in without a camera attached to our face, but we had so much fun. We were able to meet relatives and close friends of A+C, and hear all of the thoughtful speeches their bridal party gave. If I wasn’t laughing I was crying. We felt honored to be guests.

Even though the entire week leading up to A+C’s big day called for rain (like 90% chance, people) it couldn’t have been any prettier. We’re talking BLUE skies and sunshine. Their day with the help of some pretty sweet vendors: (Heartwood Hall, Lynn Doyle Flowers, Kasey Acuff, and Barefoot Bride, just to name a few) was absolutely perfect. This wedding was in a league of its own:

A plethora of teapots, garden roses, pink peonies, penguin cake toppers, ribbon wands, navy gingham with pink accessories, and monograms galore. I mean, I’ve never seen so many beautiful things in one room.

Ashley and Clay, you make us (and everyone you meet) so happy! Thanks for allowing US to be on this journey with you!

Enjoy!
