I am a wedding and lifestyle photographer located in the middle of the peach state with an itch to travel. Over the last four years, I have photographed countless weddings, rang in 2020 in Nashville while doing work for their Visitors center, and dressed head to toe in a beekeepers suit for a marketing session of a lifetime.
I think the why behind my business is what sets me apart. The why behind my business is entirely wrapped up in the name of my business. You might’ve noticed that my business’s name is Annie T. Photography but my actual name is Anna. Now let me explain before you get confused and start questioning if I am having an identity crisis. Annie is a childhood nickname given to me by my parents and family. Growing up they were the only ones who called me Annie. It was a really sweet nickname. Once I went to college my best friends heard the nickname and it just stuck. It has slowly snowballed into my name. I still have a group of people who call me Anna and that’s okay. I mean goodness that is the name my mother picked out after all.
But Annie is slowly taking over.
It’s a nickname that means we are automatically best friends. It breaks down the barriers of awkward first hellos or the judgmental stares of a stranger. Or at least that is my mission. I want them to feel welcomed into my business and style of doing things. I am letting them into a sacred part of my life by introducing myself as Annie in hopes that they allow me to capture a precious moment in theirs.
