• 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!

Wedding Ring Heart Images

This is a “classic” wedding photography image that I have seen several times but had never attempted. So I had to give it a try…by changing the height of the lighting you can adjust the heart shadows…pretty cool stuff!

  • LaDuska O'Quinn - You did a great job with our Christmas pictures. The kids were very relaxed and actually had a good time. I guess they had never seen a photographer rolling on the floor to get the best picture possible. We had a lot of compliments on the photos. Hope to do it again for this Christmas.
