The Enchanted Brides show at the Hutton Hotel in Nashville was this past Sunday and we had a great turn out! Thank you to everyone that stopped by our booth and said hello, it was a pleasure speaking to you all. We loved seeing old faces too from vendors we hadn’t seen in awhile. Sometimes we get our heads so buried in our work that we forget to look up and talk to others. We have definitely fallen guilty of that and have made a goal for 2015 to come out of our tunnel vision and get back out there. If we didn’t get the chance to meet you at the show, we hope we’ll get to meet you at some point throughout this year. We can feel it’s going to be a good one and are excited to see what the year has to offer for us all!

Big thank you to Southern Events for the table, bar and props! We love you guys and are thankful for all that you do for us! Vicky DeBettencourt of Ruffled Feathers for the amazing florals and greenery swags! Totally made our booth extra special! And Bright Events for the string lighting. They gave our booth the glow and softness it needed! Love you all!! xoxo

2015 marks our 10 year anniversary as the Photographix team! We can’t believe it’s been a decade since we started this little venture together. A snow storm brought us together back in 2003 when we were stuck in a car together for nearly 8 hours trying to get from Nashville to Franklin TN,  and we have been attached ever since! We started out doing our first wedding in 2005 for a friend of a friend, then another and another… soon we had so many weddings we thought we’d better do this legit! It wasn’t long before we were both doing Photographix full time and exciting opportunities seemed to be popping up left and right. From celebrity clients, to traveling out of the country for weddings, and meeting amazing people along the way. We did it! We’ve seen a lot of photography companies come and go over the past 10 years,  and we feel honored that we’ve been able to stick around. YOU have made that possible and we thank you from the very bottom of our hearts. Without each and every one of you, we would not be celebrating our 10 year anniversary this year. We are forever grateful and humbled. Here’s to the last 10 years and the next! We are excited to work with you and be a part of your history. Freezing moments in time for you to hold onto forever is what we do. It makes us happy that we can capture memories for you that generations from now can look at, laugh at, cry over, and just remember. Over the next year we’ll be celebrating. Please celebrate with us! Thank you for being a part of the Photographix family! Cheers to you all! xoxo

Raves from the last 10 years from our amazing clients

“Photographix shot our wedding in June 2013 and we loved them so much we had them photograph our newborn, Maggie, in February 2014. When she was 6 months old they took her pictures again and this February they will take them AGAIN when she turns ONE. We seriously can’t get enough of their photos! Jen and Ann are not only wonderful photographers, they have also grown to be our friends. I love that they get to watch our baby girl grow and can perfectly capture her personality with each photo. They always ask what we want to get out of the photos, what’s important to us, etc. and make those things their first priority when taking our pictures. Oh, and they are F-U-N! I think they had more fun at our wedding than some of our guests did:) I am so excited they are celebrating their 10 year anniversary with Photographix and know there will be many more years to come. At least there better be because I want to have more babies! Do yourself a favor and use them for your upcoming event. They will not disappoint. Trust. xoxo” – Tiffany & Russell -2015

“Jen & Ann, We are so grateful for y’all’s positive energy on our wedding day. You two were a true joy to work with and we are blessed to have had two more remarkable people to contribute to the most cherished day of our lives! Thank you for putting up with our crazy family and for not walking out when “insano” the clown showed his awful face! We sure do hope our paths cross again. Best Wishes, Christina & Blake”- 2014

“My eldest daughter was married on Nov 1, 2014, at our farm in Primm Springs, TN.  Jen Cook and Ann Carroll of Photographix spent the day with us, capturing treasured moments, many of which we would never have enjoyed were it not for their discerning and creative eyes.  Throughout the day and into the evening, they were in our midst, always pleasant, helpful, patient and fun, never intrusive or obnoxious (as photographers can often be).  Their presence enhanced our experience at every turn – it was my pleasure spending the day with them both. And then we got the pictures back, and wow, they certainly are pros at their chosen craft.  They froze the beauty of this fall day, of all our guests, of each meaningful moment.  The quality of their photos was amazing. We will forever be able to re-experience the “feeling” of this special family event through their lenses – we will forever be grateful for their efforts on our behalf.” Rodes Hart, Father of the Bride- 2014

“Jen and Ann are the absolute best team – I can’t stop bragging to everyone about how much we loved working with them and how gorgeous our pictures are. Used them for boudoir, engagement and wedding – have to find another excuse ASAP, also because we just really loved hanging out with them. So thankful and pumped to have had them! Grace & Jake”- 2013

“Jen and Ann are AMAZING at what they do! I have used them for both my engagement pictures as well as my wedding day! They are very professional and super kind. They make it so easy and flawless. My husband isn’t big on smiling but these girls got him to smile and my pictures on both days were GREAT!! Their prices are appropriate for the type of service you will receive from these amazing ladies! My favorite part of the whole experience with their company is that I not the most creative person, but after only meeting us a couple times they picked a location for the engagement pictures that suited us and my wedding pictures were so elegant just as I had dreamed!!! LOVE THEM!! Recommend them to EVERYONE!!!”- Elizabeth & Dustin- 2012

“Jen and Ann were so great to work with! I fell in love with their photography style first- I wanted a look that was soft and vintagey and when I saw their “chocolate” pictures and wide lens photos I knew they had it. The photography was one of my splurges because that is what I will still be looking at 20 years from now (whereas the taste of the cake would have long left my memory). It was just one of the most important aspects to me and Jen and Ann totally got my vision. I was glad that Jen and Ann also have the technical training as well to match their artistic eye. Almost equally important Jen and Ann have fabulous personalities. They are so easy to talk to and put us at ease (two camera shy, awkward people :)). They were super willing to try all of my picture ideas the day of and were very professional and fast as well. They even offered to help with other aspects of the wedding (such as helping me carry vases), which shows what great people they are. I’ve only seen a few of the pictures so far, but I can tell they nailed the look I was going for!” Nicole & Josey- 2012

“Jen & Ann rock! Photography was so important to us, and we couldn’t be happier with our photos. Choosing The Photographix was one of the easiest decisions we made in the planning process because of their amazing work and hearing how fabulous they are to work with! Love them!” -Camilla & Adam- 2011

“We researched and interviewed many photographers in the Nashville area, and we ultimately hired Photographix because we felt that they were the best and we felt very comfortable with them. Then they went ahead and completely exceeded our expectations. We couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos. Ann and Jen at Photographix have amazing talents, and they are so much fun to be around. Our guests LOVED them at the reception, and our wedding party was very pleased that they weren’t bossy like a lot of other wedding photographers can be during portraits. At the same time, they were able to capture our happy, amazing moments sometimes when we didn’t even notice they were there! We were able to relax and have a great time at our wedding knowing they would be capturing our memories perfectly. Their services, photos, and finished products are definitely worth the investment. We would recommend Photographix to anyone.” Nichole & Pete- 2010

“I really adore Photographix! They have a EXCEPTIONAL talent and create beautiful albums after the big event. We’ve decided to use them for our baby shower, and our baby’s first year and family photos as well. They are kind, gracious, and come with a stress free atmosphere. I’ve worked with several photographers all over the country and they are on the top of my very small and specific list! The are simply the best in the south.” Tiffany & Joe Don- 2009 

“Photographix was fantastic! These ladies were professional, easy to work with and they have a great eye for beautiful shots. We could not have been more thrilled with our engagment and wedding photos. I highly recommend them!” Lori & Tom – 2008

We wish you all a very happy and prosperous 2015 and look forward to working with you all, old and new. Happy New Year!!! xoxo

A few raves from 2014, thank you ladies!!

“These two ladies are unbelivable! Not only do they produce the best work product, but you will want to be their best friends! They are so thoughtful, professional, fun, and simply two of the kindest women I have met. So many people gave me advice on how important wedding pictures are so that you can remember your special day. And they are! Photographix does it right- I can not pick which pictures I like best because I love them all. The lighting and quality of their pictures are wonderful! They go out of their way to make you happy. Not only did they take great pictures, but they met with me a week before our wedding to make sure they knew everything and everyone who is important to me so on the wedding day they knew what I wanted captured. On the wedding day, they went out of there way for me and my husband. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Photographix. If I could do it all over, I would pick them again in a heartbeat!” -Emily

“Jen and Ann were one of the best, smoothest part of our wedding. Besides being fantastic, seasoned photographers (which is the reason we hired them) they ended up bringing a sense of calm to what could have been a chaotic moment — the family portrait at the wedding! It’s pretty rare to find laid back professionals who are also very organized, but that’s what was so impressive about Photographix: They are very sweet, very chill, and very flexible, but also very on top of their game when it comes to doing the hard work that makes for great shots. We were so happy with the photographs — they did exactly what we asked and so much more than we would have even known to ask for. I get compliments all the time on our shots. Not for nothing, I also found their rates to be extremely reasonable for the quality of work you get. I’d recommend to anybody for any type of photo shoot.” – Christy

“I have 2 words for you. BOOK THEM. And fast because they are in demand! Not only have they shot Sara Evans’ wedding and Sheryl Crow’s baby shower, they shot my wedding. And wow, am I important! (jk, jk) Ann and Jen are definitely as good as it gets! I could go on and on about their combined awesomeness, but to sum it up, here’s what I was looking for in a wedding photographer:
1. Warmth that will bring out an uncomfortable fiance’s smile
2. Creativity- But not so creative that you can’t identify yourself or anyone else in a photo
3. A kick butt professional photo album
4. Worthy of their prices (I do think you get what you pay for in photography)
5. A kind heart:)
They were all of the above and beyond! After interviewing several photographers, we hired them for our wedding and received nothing but professionalism and talent. These girls have an eye for art; they can truly capture the perfect shot that enables you to remember a memory forever.
They are not inexpensive, but why on earth would you hire a cheap photographer to document one of the most important days of your life? They will do engagement sessions, bridal portraits, wedding day photography, family portraits, pet portraits, and now boudoir sessions!! After the flood, they were even offering free photo sessions to families who lost their memories because of the flood. How can you not hire a photographer with this kind of a heart on top of loads of talent?!” -Cami

There are WAY too many photos in this blog post, but we just could not help it!! Amy is one of our oldest and dearest friends, and we had the honor of designing and capturing her TN fall mountain wedding! We of course went overboard and set up a wedding that could have hosted 50 people when we had 10, but WHAT do you expect when you get 2 wedding photographers who love details and get the rare chance to play involved?? Not to mention our amazing friends over at Southern Events who donated all the tables, chairs, dishes and cutlery to round out all the delicious vintage items that Amy had in her basement. We were seriously in Heaven when we went down there and saw all the goodies we could grab from. The items made the setting that much more personal with things from her family, Grandparents, childhood and goods found through her travels. Amy and Michael’s home is literally set on top of the most beautiful mountain in Ashland City, TN. The house looks like a log cabin and has all the quaint details you’d expect. We wanted plenty of light for Amy’s getting ready photos, so we took her childhood vanity out in the backyard for the most gorgeous backdrop for getting ready photos we have ever had! Beautiful orange and yellow fall leaves in the background, and a warm bonfire beside us to keep her toasty. Everything about this wedding turned out perfectly. I could go on and on but the pictures pretty much speak for themselves. Thank you to everyone involved for making this day possible for Amy and Michael. It was a day none of us will ever forget. xoxo

“Michael and I just have to step outside to see the lights still hanging to remember the memorable evening and night we had for our beautiful fall wedding.  We actually still dance under them when we on occasion have some alone time, lol.  Michael and I knew from the beginning that we just wanted a small wedding filled with things from our families past surrounding us.  Our family history is something that is so important to us both, something that we want to pass down to each of our children.  We surrounded ourselves with such beautiful colors, such rich history handed down to us from our grandparents to handmade quilts given to us by our great grandparents, hand picked pieces decorated the tables from around the world.  I know you probably read this in every blog, but truly we could have never done this without the love and friendship of some very special people.  I wouldn’t even say friendship at this point, this is pure family and pure love, and that is what we wanted our wedding to be about.  Jen, Ann, Sissi, Lucas, Pastor Nathan and our children, thank you, we love you.” – Amy

  • Jen Cook - Was truly a blessing to be a part of this day. Love you!! xoxo

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.”
