Candace and Rob’s Engagement at Ijams Nature Center

Get ready for a photo overload! Candace and Rob are my favorite type of couple–a little offbeat, fun, sweet, and totally in love. They have a band called The Rock Candies, and I got to hear a bit of their music at the beginning of our session at Ijams Nature Center in Knoxville, Tennessee. Love it!!

We moved down to Knoxville a year ago after I finished grad school in speech pathology and found a job down here. Rob has been able to find work teaching and playing guitar around town, so Knoxville has turned out to be a great fit for us!
