ST Photography

Hi, friends! We are Shane and Tia of ST Photography. We fell in love in high school while riding the school bus together. The trip soon turned into the best part of our day as we would day dream of driving cross country together. These dreams soon became reality as we finished school. In a garden full of roses and a candle lite path Shane asked Tia to be his bride. Three months later we had our own garden wedding and started our life of adventure, taking trips where ever we could shooting pictures along the way. Tia had taken photography in school and studied photojournalism in college and soon people were asking to have their weddings photographed. Shane loved photography as well, and soon we had a full time business. Now 14 years later our travels have taken us to the Smoky Mountains.

We have been so blessed to be involved in so many beautiful moments along the way.

This wedding seemed like a perfect reflection of our journey together. From the storybook setting in a rose garden to the candles, it’s a reminder of the start of our love story. Ashley and Michael chose the gorgeous Dara’s Garden in Maryville Pike, TN to say their “I do’s.” They met in daycare, seeing each other off and on for 25 years until they could no longer be apart. In a letter Michael wrote to his beautiful bride, he said, “We have made it this far and I’m excited to see what is in store for us.”

The light pinks and reds were the perfect choice for this garden paradise. There were dashes of crystals in the centerpieces, giving an exquisite touch to the décor.  The arch was decorated with an array of beautiful flowers emphasizing the natural beauty all around this outdoor location. But the one who received all the attention was the beauty walking down the aisle to the man she adored waiting patiently to hold her in his arms. Tears flowed as friends and family joyfully witness this occasion.

Ashley and Michael’s love story is one of the reasons we enjoy our job so much. Every wedding reminds us to cherish what we have. This life is an adventure and we cannot wait to see what is in store for us!
