Specializing in Wedding Photography that Expects the Unexpected
After photographing over 100 weddings in less than five years, I have experienced all kinds of weddings from behind the lens and have created tangible memories for dozens of couples to treasure for a lifetime.
My obsession with wedding photography began nearly 12 years ago when I began searching for my own wedding photographer. I fell in love with the genre and love providing other couples with a beautiful record of the start of their family.
I believe a life lived in service is a live well lived, and it's my honor to serve couples as their wedding photographer.
My name is Paige Ivey Evatt.
It's nice to meet you!
My Photography Style
I shoot in a classic + romantic style and like to take photos with feeling. When you look back at your photos, I want you to be transported back to the anticipation of your walk down the aisle, the magic of your first married kiss, + the love that surrounds you as you begin your marriage journey. I try to capture the true colors of your wedding day with the perfect amount of glow.
You put a lot of effort into planning every detail of your wedding day. It's my goal to capture your wedding in true colors and provide you a variety in your gallery from couples portraits that you can display as wall art in your home to fun dancing pictures to take you back to the best night of your life.
Wedding Photography is an investment. Some of my clients have not hired a professional photographer since their high school senior photos and are completely lost on what to do. Whether it's helping choose the best time for your ceremony or helping pose you during portrait time, I am with you to guide you. I understand that you are in unchartered territory, and it's my job to ease your photography related fears before wedding day. I have a series of guides that I have designed to enthusiastically lead you to your wedding day and beyond.
As well as beautiful portraits, YES, I am going to capture all of those fun dance floor moments. From first dances to when the DJ or Band really gets going, I'm there for it all. I am NOT a wallflower, and I do NOT hesitate to enter straight up into the middle of your dance floor. That's where the best party pics are made!

Chattanooga, Tennessee is my hometown.
This is the best town ever. Don't take my word for it. Outdoor Magazine named us that TWICE! I have familiarity with venues, vendors, hidden gems, scenery, + the people here. Whether you are a native like me or traveling to the Scenic City, I am thrilled to share the beauty of my hometown with you.
Many of my clients come to Chattanooga to elope or for destination weddings, and I LOVE THAT! If that's you, let's connect! I would love to share my city with you + help guide you to vendors that will help pull your vision together.
