Woodland Engagement Session in East TN

View More Photos

Rachel and James knew they wanted to keep their outdoor engagement session simple and beautiful. This made Jyn Allen Photography’s family farm in Rogersville Tennessee the perfect location. Cave Hill Farm created the most magical woodland backdrop for this sweet couple’s engagement session. Add in a dash of style and a whole lot of love, and you’ve got the perfect recipe for gorgeous photos.

The couple met while they were working at Food City bagging groceries. After only four days of knowing each other, and non-stop talking, the two started dating. “James was my first boyfriend,” Rachel says, “And now being able to say I get to marry the only man I’ve ever loved, and my best friend, is such an honor.”

James and Rachel chose to rely on the natural beauty of the venue to carry the photos, so they decided to go with a more casual style for their own outfits. Rachel’s simple gray dress was the perfect choice for the day with its cut-out and choker neckline. James’s denim shoes dressed up his classic flannel shirt and khakis in a unique and stylish way.

One of the most eye-catching accents for their photos, though, was Rachel’s stunning engagement ring. The center is made up of thirteen (13!!) diamonds surrounded by a halo of smaller diamonds all around it. The white gold twisted ring was the perfect accessory to stand out from the lush, green background.

The best part about these engagement photos is how clear the couple’s love for each other is. You can see it on their faces that they absolutely adore one another. Photographer Jyn Armstrong recalls that it had been gloomy and gray all week leading up to the shoot. But on the day of the session, the sun came out and shone upon the couple, making the photos feel extra warm and bright—just like they were feeling on the inside.

James and Rachel’s engagement photos are just one example of how sometimes less is more, and simple is anything but boring. The natural backdrop created a fairytale setting that made for gorgeous photos and fun memories for all involved.
