Knoxville, TN

At the end of January, I flew to Knoxville for a much anticipated wedding photography workshop with Bryan Allen. This would mark both my second workshop with Bryan and second trip to Knoxville, and I purposely gave myself an extra day to catch up with a local friend I had met at the first workshop, as well as to give myself an opportunity to further explore this small city on foot. The weather was cool but clear when I set out in the afternoon at the mercy of whichever direction my feet decided to take me, my trusty camera in-hand. One of my first stops after a reunion lunch and some shopping was Coffee and Chocolate, a cute little coffee shop just off Market Square where I was instantly taken by the last remaining Bacon Chocolate Chip cookie and which I enjoyed with a perfect, not-too-sweet, hot chocolate in the park across the street. From there, I wandered around the exterior of the courthouse (stunning!) and along the Tennessee River before meandering back to the Old City district, just a stone’s throw from my hotel. As the sun dipped below the horizon, I entered The Crown and Goose and nibbled on their delicious Ploughman’s Lunch (yes, for dinner!) while sipping on a lovely Cabernet Sauvignon, and completed a New York Times crossword (it was a monday). I absolutely love the cool vibe of Knoxville and it’s southern charm, and know I’ll return again…. if only as an excuse to attend another workshop or two!
