48 Iconic Photos of the 2019-2020 Bearden Bulldogs Football Squad
Lenz Photography LLC of Knoxville is excited to present the Senior Bearden Bulldogs Football Squad for the 1st time ever! This group of athletes was a blast to work with, and we really enjoyed the creativity they brought to the project. From the looks of the Bulldogs Hype Video, you’d swear that we spent hours brainstorming ideas and filming sets, but this energetic group of Seniors pulled it off in less than 30 minutes before our shoot even began. Check out the video for a behind the scenes look at the shoot, and enjoy 48 Iconic Photos of the Bearden Bulldogs Football Squad. As always, a big shout out to this year’s group of Seniors for committing to the shoot and to the parents and coaches that helped put the shoot together! Also, thank you to everyone who took the time to come out to Lenz Studio. It was a pleasure to provide our service to the first sports team from Bearden during our 8th year of business. Go Bulldogs! Text ICONIC to 24587 for booking information. Knoxville Sports Photography
52 Iconic Photos of Gibbs Senior Brook Brantley
Lenz Photography LLC of Knoxville is excited to present our first ever Iconic Senior Portrait Session of a Gibbs High School student featuring Brook Brantley. We photographed a sports session of Brook along with her brother and sister a few years ago. This time, Brook had the entire shoot to herself and she looked absolutely stunning in every outfit and in every location. We were able to photograph a lot of scenes that we've been saving for the right subject, and Brook was the perfect fit! Don't just take our word for it, though. Check out 52 Iconic Photos of Gibbs Senior Brook Brantley!
39 Iconic Photos of Model & Athlete Jayda Prater
Lenz Photography LLC of Knoxville is excited to present experienced model & athlete Jayda Prater. Jayda may only be 8 years old, but you would swear she was twice her age based off her level of maturity while working on set. When it comes to modeling, Jayda is a natural at posing and finding the light. She also takes direction well, and we're sure the discipline of being an athlete helps create a great foundation for that. It isn't simply the fact that Jayda is great at modeling or that she is a dedicated athlete, but it's how well Jayda combines the two aspects together to create a fierce yet beautiful presence. Artist Shout-Out: The dress in this set of photos was made by Wanda Beauchamp of Wanda Beauchamp Girls Couture.

A big shout out to this year’s group of Seniors for making the shoot easy and to the parents and coaches that helped put the shoot together! Go Hawks!
Sunflower Mini Session with Jadyn & Jordyn
Summer is the season for sunflowers, and there's no better way to kick off our Sunflower Mini Sessions than by photographing sisters, Jadyn & Jordyn! Even though we had to fight the crowd and swim through the flooded fields, it was worth it in order to create some Iconic Portraits of these beautiful sisters. Also, we'd like to give a big shout out to Teara for being easy to work with and for choosing the perfect outfits and accessories that helped take the portraits to the next level!

16 Iconic Photos of UT Grad Kristin Meyer
Lenz Photography LLC of Knoxville presents Kristin Meyer, a recent graduate of the University of Tennessee Knoxville. The Lenzes have had the opportunity of training jiu jitsu with Kristin over the last few years, so it was fun to create portraits of her while learning more about her career, hobbies, and interests (...aside from choking people unconscious.) Kristin recently graduated from UT with her Master of Science in Nursing and will be a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. When she's not caring for her patients, Kristin's hobbies include training martial arts such as jiu jitsu, and fixing up her Jeep, Prometheus, for the next big car show. Kristin's hard work and dedication is illustrated through everything she does from her school work, to her martial arts training and the detailed work she puts into her Jeep. A big thank you goes to Kristin for sharing all of her interests with us. We truly had a blast creating some Iconic graduation portraits together! And yes, the blue tick hound photographed is the actual niece of Smokey whom we were able to snag her for a photo! Last but not least, check out Kristin's jeep on her instagram page below! https://www.instagram.com/prometheus_chronicles/
49 Iconic Photos ft the Washburn Pirates Baseball and Softball Teams
Lenz Photography LLC of Knoxville presents the Washburn Pirates Baseball and Softball teams of Washburn High School! As mentioned in the previous post featuring the Grainger Grizzlies, this year's weather has been crazy! Either it has been too cold or too wet to photograph on the fields for photos during the month of March. So, whereas the Grainger Baseball & Softball teams had outdoor shots, we opted to photograph the Washburn Baseball & Softball portraits inside the gym. Needless to say, Plan B turned out to be Plan A+. We couldn't be happier with how they turned out! As a matter of fact, one of the players said that they "felt like they were in a Gatorade commercial" as they stepped on set in front of all the lights. We're glad the players had fun during the shoot, and even more glad the photos turned out amazing! It was an honor working with some of Grainger County's finest athletes! This set features 49 Iconic Photos ft the Washburn Pirates Baseball and Softball Teams!
68 Iconic Photos ft the Grainger Grizzlies Baseball & Softball Teams
Lenz Photography LLC of Knoxville presents the Grainger Grizzlies Baseball & Softball Teams of Grainger County High School! One thing that we can all agree on is that this year's weather has been crazy! We were lucky enough to coordinate with the coaches of Grainger to find a day that wasn't either too cold or too wet to shoot outside. We were successful in our approach to find a warm day, however the gale force winds that crept up during the shoot was a prefect example of Murphy's Law. Nothing a little extra editing couldn't fix! Thank you, parents of Grainger athletes, for your patience in our efforts to ensure all the prints and products are produced at the highest quality. We look forward to completing everyone's orders within the week! The prints are going to look amazing! This set features 68 Iconic Photos ft the Grainger Grizzlies Baseball & Softball Teams!
27 Iconic Photos ft Softball Player Lily Koelzer of the Heat
Lenz Photography LLC of Knoxville presents Softball Player Lily Koelzer of the Heat! One of our favorite things about working with young athletes is portraying the dedication they have to their respective sport. It's amazing to watch them step onto the set and bring the same intensity that they bring to the field on game day. Lily was exceptionally great at taking direction, so I guess you can say that she brought the Heat! This set features 27 Iconic Photos ft Softball Player Lily Koelzer of the Heat!

Cora Wagoner Photography documenting the Lenz Family’s First Home in 18 Portraits
Lenz Photography LLC of Knoxville presents the amazing portrait work by Cora Wagoner of Cora Wagoner Photography. Cora is an amazing artist who we have followed for several years. As photographers, we have always been blown away by her creativity. Cora's portraits are fashionably outside the box. She is currently located in Rogersville, TN, and we're so glad that we were able to book her last minute. Back in May of 2018, the Lenzes were fortunate enough to purchase our first home. Obviously buying a home is a tedious process, but once we factored in moving our personal belongings AND relocating our business to our new home we knew it was going to take some hard work and elbow grease. By Fall of 2018, we at least had the place in order to document our first home through photographs. (Although 2 months later it already looks like a different place!) This session was our first time meeting Cora in person, and she didn't disappoint. Not only did we love the portraits that she created of our family, but she was a cool person that we'd love to hang out with outside of photography! Cora truly captured our personalities and documented a special moment in our lives that we will forever look back on with nothing but positive vibes. Without going into too much detail, less than 4 years ago we were struggling to pay rent on a 430 sq ft apartment with plenty of violent crime and roaches to go around. After that, we moved to Knoxville where we lived in our studio with a makeshift shower, no kitchen, and a bed in the closet. Now, we live and work out of our own home with a separate studio space in Knoxville, TN. We're truly thankful for the struggles and the experiences during those first few years of making the leap into full time self employment. It wasn't easy, but without those struggles we wouldn't be the people we are today. Thank you for documenting our journey through photography, Cora! These 18 Portraits are some of our personal favorites from the session!

62 Iconic Photos ft the Washburn Boys & Girls Basketball Teams & Cheerleaders
Lenz Photography LLC of Knoxville presents the Boys & Girls Washburn Pirates Basketball Teams & Cheerleaders of Washburn High School! The following excerpt is originally from the previous Grainger Grizzlies blog, but we wanted to include it for this blog because Washburn is part of Grainger County and we're all family! "Now, some of you may be coming here just to see the awesome photos of the boys & girls basketball teams [and cheerleaders]. But for those of you that take the time to read this post, I'd like to personally give a shout out to the coaches, staff, players, & parents of Grainger County [Washburn included]. We have photographed several Grainger County Senior Portraits over the years, but this  - along with Washburn's Girls & Boys Basketball team & Cheerleaders - has been the largest sports groups we have photographed back to back. Not only was this shoot personal to me because I am an alumnus of Grainger County High School graduating from Rutledge High School in 2008, but it means the world to me that the people of Grainger County were as happy and excited about the photos as we were! I'm not just saying this because I'm partial to Grainger County, but the players, coaches, & parents were some of the most polite and respectful groups of people whom we have worked with in over 7 years of business. Since we started Lenz Photography, LLC in 2011, we have been a small business with only 2 employees - Alexandra and myself. We have been through the lowest of lows where we thought we may have to call it quits, to the highest of highs where we traveled 10s of thousands of miles in a year photographing professional athletes such as Drew Brees and Jason Witten. One thing is for sure, there's no way we could've gotten this far without the support like we've received from the people of Grainger County. Thank you for all the support, and hopefully we photograph many more Grainger County sports teams in the future! Last but not least, we can't wait to see the team shots and individual senior banners hanging in the gym!" This set features 62 Iconic Photos ft the Washburn Boys & Girls Basketball Teams & Cheerleaders!
