About Shanell

That’s me and my crazy little family.

I’m Shanell and that handsome devil, Phil, gave me the “Bledsoe” part in 2002.

We spent years traveling the globe working with musicians and live music is still a huge part of our world. For me, photography sort of happened by accident when I went back to college. A new obsession took over and I never looked back. That one semester turned into 4…and a new career.

Bledsoe Photography was launched in 2007. I knew I wanted to focus on photographing weddings immediately. Of course I did – I had managed bridal shops in the past and I am a true Libra who loves beautiful things! I put emphasis on the details, the things every bride and groom spends so much time deciding on and making their own. I believe that there is an art to capturing the big and small moments while being inconspicuous so that the focus is where it should be. But most of all, my goal is to provide beautiful, timeless images that immediately bring back the emotion that was felt in that exact moment.

It’s only 1 day, but the memories I capture last a lifetime. Best job ever!

My studio is located in west Knoxville at 122 S. David Lane. If you’d like to stop by to look over albums and chat about your photography needs, just contact me to schedule a time. Coffee and conversation are always on the house!
