— You want to get married?
You’ve got to get a photographer.
And, if you’re a photographer who has worked at weddings in other parts of the country, there’s a good chance that you’ll want to know a little bit more about Nashville’s best wedding photographers.
We asked a handful of the people we know to tell us a little more about the photographers we love.
They are all professionals who love weddings and are trying to capture the magic that comes with weddings.
We asked:Where are the best photographers in Tennessee?
Who are the pros in the wedding industry?
Who is the king of Nashville?
Here are some of the answers.
Ruth Brink, co-owner of Nashville Photography Center, which has been in business since 2007, says she is always surprised at the number of wedding photographers in Nashville.
“I’ve been here 15 years, and I’ve been working with the same people, and there are no surprises anymore,” Brink said.
I just always think of Nashville, which is a pretty small town, and what it’s got to offer is a great location, great people and a great lifestyle.
The number of photographers who are married and who are also working for weddings is pretty impressive, said Brink.
Nashville has a very diverse set of wedding photography professionals.
They include wedding planners, photographers, event planners, wedding planners themselves, wedding photographers who also work for agencies, wedding photography coordinators, wedding directors and wedding photographers for venues.
One of the reasons the wedding photographers are all in Nashville is because they have a common goal and a common vision.
“The photographers know that we’re all trying to bring the best experience for the guests and the venue,” Brinck said.
The wedding photographers at the Nashville Photography Centre, which offers services for wedding venues and clients, work from a small office in the heart of downtown Nashville, right by the Nashville Convention Center.
There is an entire suite for the photographers at Nashville Photography Centers offices.
The reception and the dance and the ceremony are all within walking distance.
“It’s not like we’re sitting there, waiting to get to a place,” Brinks said.
“We’re all doing our job.”
One of Brink’s favorite events to work at is the wedding reception, which she calls a “moment in time.”
“There’s so many great things that come out of a wedding, but we want to do something that you can feel good about,” Brinsk said.
The wedding reception is the most important event of a couple’s life, and Brink knows the importance of having the right photographers there for that event.
Brink has been at wedding receptions for 10 years, working with wedding photographers that have had success in other cities.
She’s worked with wedding directors, wedding coordinators and wedding directors who have had a successful experience working at weddings, including her own.
Brink said she enjoys working with photographers who want to bring something special to the reception.
“I always say that I love the way the photographer brings the show to the wedding,” Brint said.
For the reception, Brink and her co-workers bring their wedding photography expertise to the table.
“They bring a lot of the energy and enthusiasm, and the atmosphere is a lot more fun,” Brinn said.
A lot of photographers also work with weddings in downtown Nashville.
“It’s kind of a mix of photographers that work downtown,” Brank said.
There are a lot that come to downtown to do wedding photography, and they bring a ton of experience to the venue, Brinski said.
She said that the photography is often more intimate and personal than what happens in other locations.
“It really is about being intimate and showing off the best in your photography,” Brinsky said.
Brinks is a wedding photographer herself, so she knows how important it is to work with a photographer that she loves.
“[They are] really committed to making a great experience for you,” Brisk said.
“We don’t get a lot out of our photographers,” Brinds said.
That’s why she’s happy to work on weddings in her own home.
Brink says that one of the biggest things she loves about working at Nashville Photographers is how much of a collaborative process she has with the photographers.
You get to see it all come together, she said.
She’s also known for her passion for weddings.
She likes to work for weddings that have a theme, such as a “family reunion” or a “summer wedding.”
“I love that it’s an opportunity to do a big celebration with people, to have the best possible atmosphere,” Brinski said.
