Congratulations to Christie Cathey!

Christie was the winner of our #SNAPCRACKLEPOP2WIN July 2015 Instagram Contest! She and her husband chose to have a couples session in downtown Lynchburg, TN. We took a casual walk early on a Saturday morning to capture these super sweet images!


Now that you are here
I have nothing to fear
With you is where I belong
I know it, I feel it so strong
Nothing has been more clear
That it is your love I hold so dear
Deep inside is the cry of my heart
I never ever want us to part
I am a hopeless, romantic man
Doing the best he can
To show you for sure
That my love for you is pure
I will do whatever it takes
I don’t care about the stakes
You and only you I want
A prayer I know God will grant.

~ Chris

As much as I love digital photography is almost as much as I love technology in general; whether it’s creating websites, blogging, playing games, or just researching new things….and my newest pet project is creating Apps for phones and tablets!

I am currently working on my first phone app; albeit one that isn’t simple nor complex. I’m working through iBuildApp to create Cloud 9 Imagery‘s very first app! It is called “Cloud 9 Imagery at The Bridal Show 2014″…yes, I know it’s a long name. Sorry! And, while I’m apologizing, it’s not one of those newfangled widgets for photographers with all of our client’s photos and such; at least not yet.

This app is custom designed with Brides in mind for the The Bridal Show 2014 on Sunday, February 23rd, from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM in Tullahoma, TN, at the Tullahoma Events Center presented by Thunder Radio. It will include the following:

  • Bridal Show Countdown – Check the timer counting down to The Bridal Show 2014 and you’ll never forget!
  • Bridal Gift Giveaways – You can win a variety of early bird gifts during the weeks before as well as win some during the show!
  • Wedding Resources – This will have many, if not all, of the vendors at the show’s contact information available for you.
  • Pre-Show Signups – Take the time to fill out this questionnaire to sign up before the actual show and then stop by our booth for your free gift!
  • Blog – You can view the Cloud 9 Imagery blog, Behind The Camera, any time you like for inspiration!
  • Facebook – Be sure to watch our Facebook page for updates!
  • Twitter – Get your Tweet-errific fix here!
  • Website – Visit our website for session information, to join our VIP Membership and much more!

While it’s not out just YET, I will definitely post as soon as it’s ready! But, please! If you have any additions you would like to see, let me know now! Just comment below!

9th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest

What are the hallmarks of a winning image in Smithsonian magazine’s photo contest? Technical quality, clarity and composition, but also a flair for the unexpected and the ability to capture a picture-perfect moment.

Enter photographs in any of our five categories—Altered Images, Americana, the Natural World, People and Travel—and compete to win cash prizes as well as the opportunity to have your work printed in Smithsonian magazine and exhibited in the Smithsonian Institution. After reviewing the contest rules and list of frequently asked questions, you will be fully prepared to enter the contest.

The contest is open until December 1, 2011 at 2:00 PM EST. On a weekly basis beginning April 4, Smithsonian judges will post the best of the incoming entries in the Editors’ Picks portion of our web site. Finalists will be announced on March 1, 2012. Good luck to everyone!

Fifty finalists will be selected, ten for each of the five categories.

Smithsonian will notify the 50 finalists by February 28, 2012. From these 50 finalists, five category winners and a grand prize winner will be selected. The entries of all finalists will be published on the magazine’s Web site on March 1, 2012. At that time, readers can vote online for one readers’ choice winner. The winning entries will be published in the print edition of Smithsonian magazine during summer 2012.


The grand prize winner will receive a Smithsonian Journeys trip to Yosemite National Park, or the wholesale cash equivalent (approx. $3,000).

Category winners will be awarded $500.

Readers’ choice winner will be awarded $500.
