Bell Buckle Park, Centennial Park, and the Nashville Parthenon
Summer Engagement Photography in Tennessee
I love to witness a happy transition from a couple dating to getting engaged! This couple is especially close to my heart. My husband, David, and I introduced Diana and Nicholas in September of 2022. They quickly hit it off and despite a long distance relationship, their love grew and grew. On June 25th, 2023, the stage was set for a surprise engagement. The soon-to-be bride from Georgia, soon-to-be groom from Texas, and photographer from Indiana were all in Tennessee for a day none of us will forget.
I was hiding in an old shed (with wasps, bees, and their nests included) as Nicholas gathered Diana and her family outside for a "family photo". Rain started pouring down, but no one was deterred. Instead of jumping in the family photo, Nicholas got down on one knee and asked Diana to be his wife. I captured their surprise proposal and then celebrated with these friends who feel like family.
The next morning, we took advantage of the opportunity to have an engagement portrait session. We started in the cute little town of Bell Buckle, Tennessee. Then we headed up to Nashville for some pictures at the Parthenon and Centennial Park. The love Diana and Nicholas share for each other is evident in these beautiful engagement portraits. I'm so excited for their wedding next year!
About the Photographer
Jayme Riggleman Photography
Hi! I'm Jayme Riggleman, a wedding photographer based in Zionsville, near Indianapolis, Indiana. I've had a passion for photography for as long as I can remember - from the first camera given to me at a young age, I was captivated by the excitement of capturing moments, memories, and the people experiencing them. I grew up on the West Coast and received a formal photography education from Pacific University. I offer photography packages for weddings, engagements, proposals, families, gymnastics, and more. When I'm not behind the lens, I'm hanging out with my husband and adorable Mini Goldendoodle puppy, serving and living life with our church family, and judging rhythmic gymnastics competitions around the country and world. I have availability for weddings and other photography sessions throughout 2023 and 2024. Let's chat about your story!
