Nashville Photographers I Love

A crucial part of your blogger success is finding photographers you love to work with. It’s not just about the pictures, but the time you spend with them. I’ve been lucky enough to find some really great photographers in Nashville. They’re not only great at capturing me on camera, but great people. Below find some of my favorite photographers I love in Nashville. Throughout February 2019, I will be doing a photo session with each of them on Instagram. Head over to my Instagram page enter.

Jalisa at Jalisa Ranae Photography

Jalisa first picked up a camera her senior year in high school for basically what was supposed to be a “fluff class”.  She says she didn’t really “learn” anything technical from it, but knew in that moment it was meant for her to experiment around with. She took pictures of everything! Jalisa is based in Middle Tennessee. She is a mother. She has an eye for expressionism, a passion for fashion all creative things. Her goals consist of philanthropy using photography, magazine publications and traveling the world to showcase her creative works.


Daniel at Daniel Christopher Photo

Photography has been a passion of Daniel since 2014. He started a food blog. He would run the critique and a friend ran the photography. She helped me gain an appreciation that just kept on growing from there. Daniel has a deep love for story-telling. He loves the way a photo can explain a moment. He loves how videos can convey emotion and nostalgia in just a few minutes. His goal is to create content that is timeless. He is always eager to try new ideas, and work toward becoming someone better in my craft.


Tamara at T.Marie Photography

Tamara is a traveling portrait photographer based in Nashville. She chose to join her genuine love for others with her creative passion, and birthed T. Marie Photography. Tamara strives to make each photo experience so comfortable, that it reminds you of taking photos with your bestie. Tamar’s mother is a painter. Growing up she instilled the value of art to her. She always wanted to draw or paint but she can’t draw a straight line to save her life. Tamara wanted so badly to become an artist but just didn’t know how. After doing some research, she decided to buy her first DSLR. It was a Canon T4i. The rest is history!



Christy at Authentic Photos and Designs

Christy is a mom of 4 and has her own Nashville Mural Tour with Airbnb experiences. She fell in love with photography when she was a little girl, looking at books of fashion and classic Hollywood. Princess Diana was her biggest inspiration and she looked at photos of her and wanted to take beautiful photos. Seven years ago, after her 4th child, she bought her first DSRL and began the journey into professional photography. Being self-taught, it has been a journey of trial and error for Christy, all the while a labor of love, and an outlet for her creativity.
