• Who’s This Randy Dude?

    Well, that's me! I'm from East TN, married to the lovely Laura, have way too many kids (two of which are Active Military), and we live in Knoxville.

    On the photography side I have the coolest photography studio in Knoxville (ok, maybe I am a bit biased), have won several awards, teach a variety of photography classes & workshops, love working with kids, high school seniors, and families, and shoot a lot of sports (bad habit #3). My images have been published worldwide, including on two Sports Illustrated covers and many other national and international magazines and newspapers. I have photographed everything from newborns to underground mines to some very awesome images of kids and high school seniors, and yeah it's a blast!

    My goal is to produce stunning images of my subjects using creative backgrounds, a great relationship with my subjects, dramatic lighting, and awesome posing. Thanks for stopping by!

Knoxville Wedding Photography (as an assistant) :)

I love photographing weddings. Having the chance to share nearly every minute of a couple’s most important day of their lives is nothing short of an amazing experience. I don’t aggressively promote myself as a wedding photographer due to the fact that I normally can’t ever make my crazy schedule work, but my buddy Reed Carringer has […]

  • Jeff Jacoby - Randy…great stuff! Might have to join you guys sometime. After I get out of this crazy business…I have thought about shooting some weddings and other stuff to supplement my retirement. Always fun to hang out with great guys and talented photographers like you and Reed! Plus, not bad value for Bride and Groom…heck if you get one good shot…its FREE! :) Only 17 weeks til the home opener at Neyland! Can’t wait!

    Did you see the stuff I did with Mallory and Courtney with caps and gowns and then with Faymie and Andrea the following week? Would love feedback and suggestions! All were VERY pleased. All shots were done with an on-camera flash…trying to keep these free jobs simple! (Plus, I don’t even own an off camera flash!)

    Hope you guys are great! Talk to you soon!
