Eve and Derek » Chattanooga Engagement Photographer

I had a wonderful time walking around with Eve and Derek photographing their engagement session. They allowed me to have a first time experience as a photographer: shooting them in a coffee shop! It was fun and I loved how the photos turned out.

Eve has known Derek for a long time from being in theater and later he became good friends with her brother. So he’d been around her family for some time but two years ago, their relationship went to a new level when Derek asked Eve out on a date (she secretly liked him as well).  Once they expressed their true feelings for each other, it didn’t take long for them to become engaged! 6 months of dating and they just knew!  They share this wonderful closeness, a warm romantic passion for each other. I was excited to capture this on camera.  Hope I did them justice!

Here are a few of my favorites below!


This a testimony of their wacky since of humor.  Love this shot!

Since they’re both work in theater, I thought we’d do a dramatic pose for our self portrait!

Thanks again for hanging with me for a couple of hours! I really enjoyed getting to know both of you better!

What other’s are saying

Something subtle, yet powerful, happens when I look at Bo. There’s an energy present that is very real and felt only between the two of us. It is the connection we have with each other, embodying all that brought us together and the love we share. I imagine that most people assume it’s there, but no one actually looks for it. Except you. Instead of taking pictures of the two of us, you capture what is between us. It is a profound gift that you have, Rich, to catch meaning in a glance or love in a touch. Thank you so much for sharing your gift with us. - Rebekah Hughes
