I had the opportunity to shoot a beautiful Clarksville, TN Wedding at a newer venue in middle Tennessee. Located in Clarksville, TN, The Hayloft at Port Royal is a converted barn that was, as it says, a hayloft. It’s located in the middle of hundreds of acres of farm land, and has all the amenities needed to suite a wedding from the ceremony to the reception all in one spot. It’s a perfect venue for the couple looking for the rustic, barn type wedding. As I said, it’s relatively new to the wedding venue field, and I would definitely like to see what the owners do with it when everything is how they envisioned it. Only thing, it is an outdoor venue, so the hot, humid Tennessee summers are a bit sticky, but a fall wedding would be perfect.
Right away, I could tell this couple has a loving family and friends that would do anything for them. The groomsmen were not the typical didn’t-want-their-picture-taken bunch, they were right there with me coming up with different off the wall ideas and poses. It was a fun time, and had we had more time I’m sure there would’ve been some even crazier stuff captured. As a couple, they were one of the easiest couples to work with and didn’t really want anything other than to make sure that everyone in attendance was captured with them. So I made sure to capture that and the essence of this couple, they were very in love and it was easy to see that and capture. When couples are so into each other it makes my job so much easier, you can really get those moments of just the two of them and the expressions speak volumes through photographs.
