Elegant Nerman Museum Engagement | Rebecca & Benjamin

Rebecca and Benjamin live their lives day-to-day in Nashville, TN. After a long stint of being in a long-distance relationship? They closed that gap physically and then got freaking engaged. So what did they do? They drove all the way from Nashville for this amazing and elegant Nerman Museum Engagement session.

These two will be married in almost exactly two years at the Lightener Museum in St. Augustine, Florida. It’s probably the most beautiful wedding venue I’ve ever seen. Therefore, It’s absolutely fitting for one of the most beautiful couples I’ve ever met.

I originally met Rebecca when she was a bridesmaid for one of my favorite brides ever, Jordan, at her Weston Red Barn Farm wedding. She was so full of love, light, & helped me keep my energy levels high even when I’d been there and tired for hours. It’s always such a relief to meet and bond with someone in the wedding party immediately.

These two are huge lovers for family and advocates for each other, especially under the pressure of having such a long-distance relationship. After their engagement photos, we went for dinner where I got to know them even more. Ben has such a gentle soul and is so incredibly supportive of Rebecca and everything she does. She is the same. His music career and her Make-Up career put them both firmly in the art scene.

My husband and I have now made it our mission to see them in Nashville before their wedding so we can see their scene. They talk about it with such joy and maybe some of it is their local church scene, but it seems like an amazing place to be.

Looking for more couples who travel or have had me travel for their engagements and weddings?

Choosing Tay to photograph our wedding was one of the easiest and best decisions we made. Both my husband and I are awkward and uncomfortable with being the center of attention and photographed, obviously a bad position to be in on your wedding day. However, Tay made something typically uncomfortable for us into something fun and easy! The photographs are beautiful and captured a lot of special moments as well as the energy of our dance floor at our reception!!

Tay is simply the best! Her work is STUNNING, and we're so lucky to have found her. We had a blast during our engagement shoot -- Tay instantly makes you feel so comfortable, as if you've known her for years. Our family and friends loved the photos as much as we did. It was important to us that we find an experienced photographer who knows how to photograph people of color and is LGBTQ-friendly. Tay absolutely fits the bill. We're so excited to work with her again at our wedding in April. Also, brides-and-grooms-to-be: Check out her blog for some amazing tips! It has become a touchstone guiding us through this crazy process.

I’m so glad I trusted Tayanna with my wedding day! She not only exceeded my expectations for what I thought our wedding photos could look like, but she had a beautiful sneak peek for me that night! The sneak peek was enough to make me sob. Then the rest of the photos came only 9 days later! I could go on forever. If you need a photographer that’s fun, energetic and on her game sooooo hard, you need Tayanna Harris. She’s killer!!!
