If I had to name one of my least favorite parts about Tennessee, it would probably be the way all plant life completely dies during the winter. Being from the PNW where plant life stays lush and green throughout the colder months, it was a big change for me, especially since we hardly ever see snow here to cover it either. So, when you need to shoot outdoors in the winter here, you just have to embrace it. That's what we did here with Abbi and Jared for this bridal session. After looking through the photos I realized we actually seemed to make the surroundings work in our favor! Scroll down for some romantic, East-Tennessee-winter bridals, and also Abbi's adorable mud-trekking shoes.
