I’m a Nashville photographer and former journalist. I love of coffee, yoga, books and old movies. I fell in love with photography as a young child, watching my father in the darkroom. It was magic! I got serious about photography in college, beginning with nature and landscapes, and later sports, events, travel and people. In 2013 I launched Deb Scally Photography when I shot my first wedding! I was hooked! The experience of capturing the love, emotion, energy, and joy of a wedding day is like no other. Since that first wedding, I haven’t looked back!
Storytelling is my passion. I look for authentic moments that capture people as they really are.
I’m more than a photographer
I’ll be the first to admit, there are many professionals to choose from when you begin your search for a Nashville photographer. One thing you should know about me as your photographer is that I am all in. I care about every detail of your day, and I’ll work hard behind the scenes to ensure everything runs smoothly so you have a great wedding day! For example, I’ll reach out to your other vendors to share your timeline. I think through the logistics of traveling from one venue location to another. I’ll advise you if I see anything that might cause a blip in your wedding day plans. I truly care about your full experience, because in the end, all of those things will impact your wedding photos!
The relationships I forge with my clients is key. It often begins six months to a year (or more) in advance of your wedding day! Getting to know my clients well in advance has a lot of advantages. We have time for casual coffee meetings, time to brainstorm about the venue and photography ideas, and really think through all the details. Plus, nearly every package I offer includes an engagement session, which sets the stage for great wedding photography!
Relationships are everything
Whether I’m photographing a wedding, a couple’s engagement, or a family lifestyle, I’m looking to capture the unique relationships and personalities that make you who you are. My photographs are artistic, yet authentic. I want you to remember the real moments and emotions as they occurred…the memories that will truly resonate in your heart, years later, when you enjoy them again and again.
