Welcome, and Thank you for taking an interest in Long Love Photography. We are an On Location Photography business that provides service to East Tennessee, and the surrounding area.

I have been a Wedding and Family photographer for the past 15 years, working with Infants, Children, Teens, and Family groups both large and small.

In 15 years I have photographed Hundreds of families in both studio, and outdoor settings creating memories to last lifetimes. It’s a passion I have had all of my life, and I would like to share it with you.

 This last year 2019 I moved our family from Northern California where I had a very successful Photography business, to begin a new Adventure in our lives with our three boys, and my amazing and wonderful husband David.

To start a new adventure here in East Tennessee was no easy task, and leaving our friends and family was even harder. But it has been the best choice we ever could have made for our family. We could not be happier than to escape to such a Wonderful State with Amazing people whom have consistently made us feel so welcomed!

Our family loves adventure, meeting new people and we could not think of a better place to raise our children and start our new life then right here in Maryville, Tennessee.

Allow me a moment to explain how I’m different than many other photographers.

As a family photographer for the last 15 years I understand husbands and children will only last so long when asked to pose for pictures(Mine are no different). So, keeping that in mind I like to say I work on “Baby Time” when working with children and infants, to capture the most precious of memories.

I do this by having patience to get the best possible photos, not to rush you or your family. To accomplish this I only take 2-3 sessions in a day to ensure I can spend the time I need with you and your family to find those special moments.

A forced smile is just that it’s forced. To help you relax it’s important for you to have fun and to capture the best possible photos with a genuine smile. So I make Family Photos as “Painless” as possible!

In the past I have been asked to provide services for many Weddings, Birthdays, Engagements, Memorials, Baby showers, and happy events. If you book an event with Long Love Photography your event takes priority, and will be the only event scheduled for that day! This way all of your photographers skills are focused on You!

Please take a moment to see what we have done in the past. Some are available for your viewing under our “Our Photography” tab at the top of this page.

Where did my love of Photography start??

I have many passions when it comes to photography but Landscape and Vista Photography is where my love for photography truly started. Photographers such as Ansel Adams and Peter Lik have inspired me to look for the soul of  every photo I take, not to capture just the image.

It is my belief you should not only see the emotion of a photograph but feel it as well. I hope you will take a few moments to view my work under the “Landscapes” tab. I will be updating it regularly.
