Knoxville Photographer

Local to Knoxville, TN
Serving Nationwide


We are Professional Knoxville Photographers who are passionate about providing you with modern photography and an exceptional experience. Our current focus as photographers includes wedding photography, commercial photography, Quinceañera photography, and portrait photography. As photographers in Knoxville since 2014, we have photographed in every corner of Knoxville from West Knoxville in Sequoyah Hills and Lyons View to East Knoxville in the Knoxville Botanical Gardens. Traveling down to South Knoxville, we have been to Ijams Nature Center along with the Urban Wilderness, and with a short trip up to North Knoxville, we have photographed at some of the most stunning locations, businesses, and venues.

Beyond being photographers, we are also super personable and friendly! For us, being Knoxville photographers allows us to use our passion and creativity to impact the lives and businesses of others. The famous quote "Find a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in life" is somewhat true, but I mean come on, 10-hour wedding days are no joke! Running a photography business and carrying heavy gear is hard work, but the fruits of the labor long outlast the last drip of sweat, yes, I totally just made that quote up and will roll with it!

Knoxville Wedding Photographer

As a Knoxville wedding photographer since 2014, we bring a wealth of knowledge and experience with us on a wedding day. The moments on a wedding day truly happen in split seconds, so it is of utmost importance to have a seasoned professional documenting your wedding. We invite you to view our wedding photography portfolio which showcases our unique style of cinematic wedding photography, candid storytelling photography, formal portraits of family & friends, wedding detail & attire photographs as well as our engagement photography portfolio which features some of our favorite photographs we have captured throughout the years.

Our unique style of romantic, cinematic, and storytelling wedding photography style is what we are known for. This means that on your wedding day, we will capture the perfect mix of those meaningful natural in-between moments as well as creative and bold imagery that you will enjoy viewing printed on your walls or inside of an heirloom wedding album.

At Golightly Studios, we do things differently than most wedding photographers. We truly believe that the moments and memories of your wedding day deserve to be enjoyed through printed artwork, rather than living and dying on a hard drive or lost among the endless scroll of the social media feed. This is why all of our wedding collections include a printed wedding album that you and your family can enjoy for decades. Don't worry, all of our wedding collections also include downloadable digital files that you can share and keep a copy of.

Knoxville Commercial Photographer

We provide commercial photography to companies and small businesses in Knoxville and surrounding areas. Our current commercial offerings include headshot photography, event photography, real estate photography, interior/exterior photography, printed media photography, pre-construction photography, and more.

No matter if you are a large company requiring professional headshots of your new staff or a solo entrepreneur starting a new endeavor, we can provide you with commercial photography that will help you stand out. One of the benefits of choosing our studio is that we take the time to understand your needs and overall vision in advance, this helps us tailor the overall photography and style to fit your requirements.
