Thank you so much for visiting my website! My name is Glenai Gilbert and I am a wedding photographer in Nashville, TN and beyond!
Creating intentional, long lasting memories is my passion. I want all the images I create to have a moment where my clients think, “I can’t wait to show this to my kids,” or help them relive the moment as if they could still taste the cake. My art is focused on individuals and the transitions of emotions they experience through their wedding days. It’s such a unique experience to be on the outskirts looking in on someone’s lives’; I get to meet their closest friends and family, see how they do under pressure, how they dance, hear words they speak to their loved ones, and see a day they created so detailed to celebrate something so special. My passion is driven by loss, and knowing how important it is to cherish every moment- and that is where my purpose and energy for the long days comes from. I’m so grateful that my job connects me with so many amazing people, and that I can do something that not only gives me joy and purpose but others as well.
People have always been my passion. I love being able to tell a story through my photographs and I work hard at creating REAL moments that are authentic to who my subject is.
I have always loved photography, and began experimenting in High School with self portraits, but really began my pursuit of photography my second year of college. My career started by taking portraits of friends, families, and musicians- and then moved towards more of the fashion side of photography. A friend asked me to shoot one their family members weddings, which I was reluctant to at first. I was a nervous wreck thinking about taking someone else’s forever photos (you can’t recreate a whole wedding day). But by the end of the day, I fell in love with it. Getting to capture true love (not just an interpretation of it) sparked my passion. I loved being a part of the special moments.
Since then, I have been featured in several bridal magazines/blogs in Tennessee, and Won 2017/18 Couples Choice Award for Wedding Wire. Weddings have become a second nature to me, and I have a blast getting to know the couples.
