I traveled down to Nashville, TN for Marcus and Ashley's engagement session at the very start of spring, and while it still felt gray, brown, and bleak in Michigan, as I drove further south, trees turned green, blossoms were blooming, and the sunshine was so warm and refreshing (oddly enough it snowed here in Michigan the day of my return...thanks Michigan for your warm welcome back).  But that wasn't the only reason why their engagement session was amazing.  Ashley and Marcus are the sweetest people you'll ever meet, they have all that sweet southern hospitality and charm.  They pre-planned a wonderful day for our shoot and showed us around the Nashville area while we hung out and got to know each other a little better.  We began the day at the Carnton Plantation in historic Franklin TN, which is an incredibly beautiful place to visit, hopefully I've given it justice in these photos.  We even wandered into downtown Franklin for lunch at a old pharmacy turned restaurant for a bite before then heading downtown Nashville for more amazing backdrops for pictures.  Couldn't have asked for a better trip, it was truly awesome to spend the day with two incredible people who love each other deeply and document their love in the place they call home.  Thank you both for inviting me down, I can't wait to see you again for wedding day!
