This was such a beautiful TN farm wedding! Everything from Christina’s dress, the guys denim, the goats and horses in the background, to the gorgeous barn decorated with candles and flowers… everything was simply perfect! We can’t say enough nice things about Christina and Blake and their wonderful family and friends. From the moment we walked in the door, we felt welcome, warm and a part of the family. Thank you all for being so amazing and trusting us with such an important day. We will never forget how we felt on this day and will always look back on these images with smiles on our faces. xoxo!

“The day was magical! It started out with a yummy crepe filled with peanut butter and granola, just like I like, an iced soy latte and my beautiful maid of honor (my baby sister). What more could I have asked for? As the wedding day continued, my sister at my hip, and the women of my family near by, I absorbed it all. I didn’t want the miss a second. The ride to Lick Creek Farm was beautiful, the sun was shining, the leaves were changing and God was filling me completely. My crazy friends and sisters were singing every wedding song they could possibly think of and I was just watching, in awe, that this day was finally here! The farm was glowing as we pulled up and began the wedding festivities. Make up, hair and bubble bathes in progress. My parents, my siblings and my best friends all taking part in creating this miraculous day!
Led down the aisle by my hero, my dad, to the man that I am committing my life to is a moment that will be cherished for the rest of my life. A barn full of the people I love most in this world, witnessing the commitment being made between the love of my life and myself. This was a true blessing that I never knew existed. The moment I have dreamed of since I was a little girl. Blake and I are truly blessed to have found each other and to have family and friends that encourage us, love us, support us and push us to be better people.  November 1, 2014 is a day that will be imprinted on my heart for eternity.” -Christina Hart

A few months before her boudoir session, Miss “A” came to meet us. She was super nervous and from out of town, so she wanted to meet us and have a look around the studio to hopefully calm her nerves! She came in and was blown away by our boudoir studio, and loved the fact that Artistry Spa Salon was right beneath us to do her hair and makeup. This was going to be a wedding present for her soon to be husband, and like most guys, he would never in a million years even think she would do something like this! We have said this before, but we LOVE being a part of such a sneaky surprise:)The day of her shoot, she came in all smiles but still nervous (as can be expected!). But in no time, those nerves melted away and her cheeky attitude came out to play! She brought a bottle of Crown Royal (LOL!) bc it was her fiancé s favorite and she thought he would get a kick out of it… who doesn’t like “booty and booze?!” she said! We had such a wonderful time with “A”. She was so light and airy and super fun, we felt like we had been friends forever. She emailed us the other day and said He absolutely loved the pictures and still says he cant believe I actually did that. He has the book laying on his bedside table :)”  We knew he would! Thanks you Miss “A” for putting your trust in our hands! We had the best day with you and hope to see you again! xoxo

From “A”: “Simply amazing to work with, beautiful and creative pictures, awesome awesome awesome ladies! I cannot say more about these two great photographers. I have never enjoyed working with any photographers more! I had so much fun and the quality of the pictures was simply outstanding! I would recommend the Photographix girls to anyone!”

  • Jen Cook - Loved working with you “A”! Can’t wait to see you for the next one! xoxo

Working with Beth and Jon on their wedding day at Mint Springs Farm was wonderful. That morning, we woke up to an overcast cold day. By the time we started shooting, it didn’t matter bc everyone was chipper, happy, and excited to celebrate the marriage of their best friends! This group was so much fun and easy to work with! Their day was absolutely beautiful! We always love shooting out at MSF bc it’s just so light and airy. Details by Margaret did such a fantastic job at bringing that same look and feel to the reception… absolutely perfect! We hope you’ll enjoy a little preview of their day! xo

“From the beginning Jon and I wanted to make sure the wedding was centered around our love, our boys and the people in our lives that helped shaped who we are today. We wanted the day to be simple. With that…simplicity quickly became my ‘theme’. Simple colors, simple decorations, simple ceremony…we imagined our day to simply be about our commitment to each other and the beautiful people in our lives. Having both been married previously and both experienced tough times…we were ready to celebrate nothing more than simply our love. Mint Springs Farms was everything I’d ever imagined it would be and more. 
Jen and Ann captured the most perfect pictures of our wedding party, our boys, our ceremony and the reception. The pictures tell our story so perfectly and we couldn’t be more impressed by their talent and their sweet love for people. My day was indeed as perfect as our pictures look and we couldn’t be more excited to share our story with the great people of Nashville.”

We had such a wonderful time photographing Miss C’s boudoir shoot! She was full of energy and willing to bring her fierce A-game and put her total trust in us. She KILLED her shoot:)We love to give all our boudoir clients celebrity dopplegangers, and we think she is straight up Kate Beckinsale! Do you agree?? Her husband is one lucky guy! C, thank you so much for coming in to shoot with us and allowing us to show off some of your beautiful images. You are stunning in every way! xo

“Jenn and Ann are amazing!  I was very nervous going into the boudoir shoot and didn’t know what to expect.  As soon as I walked into the studio they both made me feel very comfortable and relaxed.  The shoot was so much fun!  We laughed at my awkwardness and inability to make a “serious face”, but somehow they made me look good!  I was so pleased with how the pictures turned out and could not wait to show my husband.  His reaction was priceless and thought it was the best thing ever!  I went into this thinking it was something for my husband, but found that it showed a whole new side of me that made me feel confident and sexy!  Thank you Jenn and Ann for working your magic!  I would highly recommend booking a Boudoir shoot with the girls at Photographix!” -C

There’s still time to book your boudoir shoot for a Christmas present! Call today to set it up!

Newborn photography is one of our favorite sessions to photograph, and we’ve been waiting on this little one for awhile now. She’s finally here! Meet Amy, our newest little Photographix client! She is perfect in every way, shape and form. We had the privilege of photographing her newborn shoot in our studio this morning at just 6 days old. Jen and Josh couldn’t be more smitten with her. They just wanted to stare at her all morning which was fine with us! We are thrilled that we get to capture her first year and watch her grow. Maybe we’ll get to shoot her wedding in… 50 years?? Josh, is that long enough?? Ah well, for now we will all look back on these adorable, peaceful, angelic photos when we are having a bad day and need to smile. How could you not when you look at that face? We’re excited to see the side-by-side shot they do with Josh holding Amy on his arm. He and Jen have a similar shot of just the two of them (no, Jen is not lying on his arm, lol!!) We can picture how beautiful they will pair together. Congratulation you guys! Amy is an absolute doll! xo

Photographix West Franklin Living Magazine

 

Jen Cook and Ann Carroll shoot photos that reflect their own nature—light and airy, sweet and sensitive.

The two women who teamed their Canons nine years ago specialize in weddings, family, mitzvahs and boudoir photography. Their studio in Westhaven Town Center in Franklin is a light filled, bright and a happy place—-much like the photographers themselves.

The pair’s photos have appeared in “People”, “Country Weekly”, “US Weekly”, “Southern Exposure Magazine” and “West Franklin Living”, to name a few. Their client list includes celebrities like Rascal Flatts, Ronnie Dunn, John Rich, Sara Evans, Kings of Leon, politicians and lots of everyday folks celebrating special moments and occasions.

“We shoot most everything, except boudoir, outside,” says Cook. “We love the natural light and prefer capturing people, places and events in that warm glow it provides. Of, course we shoot weddings within churches and event venues, but even for those, we like moving our brides and grooms and families outside for portrait shots.”

The pair, both alumni of Watkins Art and Design, added boudoir photography to their specialties a half dozen years ago.

“We had sort of a random request from a friend, so we shot her and had so much fun in the staging, shooting and the results, that we have added that category to our work,” said Carroll.

Their studio at Westhaven has a loft styled apartment suite section with huge windows. The bedroom furnishings are “girly and gorgeous” said the photographers.

“We have so much fun with this portion of our business,” said Cook. “We love making every woman feel beautiful and special. Our boudoir business attracts women of all ages. Often the finished photographs are gifts for husbands or boyfriends.”

In addition to weddings and mitzvahs, the pair also specialize in family photography.

“We love capturing the essence of a family, their personalities, their inner as well as outer selves,” said Carroll. “We cherish our own families and fully realize the joy and love that fills the hearts of those we photograph. It’s our goal to portray that, not just a staged gathering.”

Cook and her husband, Daniel, have three-year-old twins, a boy and a girl . Carroll and her husband, Brandon, have a 16-year-old son and a six-year-old daughter. Both families live in Spring Hill.

The photographers met when they were classmates at Watkins.

“We lived near each other and decided to car pool back home once during a snow storm,” said Cook. “The 20-minute drive turned into 8 hours. We became business partners after graduation. We’ve been together ever since.”

Photographix specializes in albums, wall prints and canvas pieces. Discs of images can be purchased, giving clients access to all images for their own personal use.

The photographers pursue their art full time.

“We’re work wives,” they joke.

When they’re not capturing beautiful memories for their clients, they’re busy making their own with their husbands and children.

Cedarwood is one of our most favorite venues to shoot. With all this rain and wind we’ve had the last few days, we’ve been feeling like we need a little light and color in the house! Going back through old photos for our throwback post, we came across Lisa and Andrew’s colorful and fresh Cedarwood wedding. This day was perfect. From the colorful pallet of blue, pinks and greens, to the personalized glasses with the couples sketched photo on it, and the “things we love” watercolor… every detail was impeccable. We love that they went with a secret garden dinner party theme so the night was intimate and deliciously lit. At the end of the night we got to have some fun playing with sparklers and got some really fun shots. You can see more of their amazing wedding day on the Cedarwood blog.

“We absolutely love the pictures!  They are amazing! Have a great week and thank you both again for everything!  We were so lucky to have you guys capture our wedding and it certainly felt like we’ve known you both forever! ” – Lisa

Thanks to Cedarwood for all your awesome work and inspiration, and to our wonderful vendor-partners, Designs in PaperPatty Cakes and Chef Anthony Montgomery to name a few!
