This is the most delicious assignment I’ve had in a little while…I did not sample them all; however I did sit down at The Orangery for this very tasty treat you see first…I believe the Smoked Salmon was cooked to perfection with the slightest crunch at the end with a lemon flavor that lingered for just a couple of seconds with each bite. The poached egg was cooked to perfection as well with a creamy white and mellow yoke to ooze over the English Muffins.
This is Washington DC seen by me with just a little over an hour to spend while not on the job from last year’s assignment on “the hill.” Hope you enjoy…I was really feeling the pace of DC, life’s fleeting hour glass ticking, and the reality of catching my flight home.
I have been working as a Freelance Journalist since 1998 in Knoxville after spending eight years working at the Gulf of Mexico off and on as a beach photographer..I have been capturing Knoxville’s downtown on film and now digitally ever since and have watched the revitalization first hand. These are ten images taken in downtown Knoxville, TN for a magazine to be released in 2013 called KnowKnoxville. This is also the second year in a row working for this annual publication. Justin Fee
This the latest card I will be handing out for 2012 and into 2013 for wedding photography…if your ready to take the vows I am still capturing it as a veteran Journalist and a lifetime of memories for you to share….Justin
Here is a one and a half hour tour I did “self guided” just before leaving DC this past September while I was there for three days working. However the first four photos are from the previous night…Thanks Lord for this fun walk about town and another good year with Zero, “The Project to End Prostate Cancer.”
This is the latest home to be featured in Knoxville Magazine and was a blast to shoot. I grew up with this home being one of those fond memories I recall while riding in the back seat of my mom and dad’s car. My dad, Ray Fee often took the scenic route back to our home and I remember seeing this home with a tree growing out of the roof, with my mom, Ruth Ann recalling how she used to visit that home when she was a young girl. Then we would travel further down Woodson Drive and pass by a home my mom and dad both agreed was their dream home and how they wished they had purchased it when they had the chance. I on the other hand was always fascinated with the curved roof home with a tree growing up through it and clearly visible through the large front glass windows. I was always fascinated with the beauty of South Knoxville from the backseat of the car while feeling the sun on my face with shadows dancing by as we made our way home; a very inspiring and pleasant imprint was made that I still carry with me today.
I have been a busy beaver in South Knoxville…to mention a few things…covering various News Sentinel assignments, photographing a Persian style wedding a week ago today, a commercial photo shoot for TEC and four portraits for a new Johnson & Galyon website redesign…Hallelujah! So, I have not had time to blog as much as I did last year; not to say that I wasn’t busy last year, but blogging was new and more part of my routine. Let’s get real too; who is even reading these words that I am typing now. Moving on however, to document a few things to those who are reading and maybe to my future baby girl who will be joining us in about four months. She may decide to see what her old man was doing for 20 years of his life before she came into the picture…get it “picture” I am a photographer? These words may hold some significance to her in the future. I really do enjoy writing and find it important when covering news assignments to have good writing skills, but above all to be nonobjective when I have covered the news for the past twelve years living back in Knoxville, TN. Prior to that I lived on and off again in Panama City Beach, FL also working as a photographer and keeping journals in books about life and what was happening in my 20′s. Basically, I was blogging, facebooking, or tweeting about my life before these things ever came about because I actually needed to help release what I was feeling inside and writing was a great way to do that. The journals are all still here in the house somewhere and I intend on my children being able read the journals one day. Wow, I have just completed 270 words at the stop of that last sentence so I guess I will post up some photos I have taken lately. These will be a bit random but are all very recently taken in the last month or so. Peace to you!
Wedding photography to me is a chance to bring all of my skills as a truly dedicated and long time professional photographer together for a sometimes once in a lifetime event. People think about this day from when they are very young and it really has a lot of built up emotion for many brides and grooms not to mention all of the immediate families. Wedding photography is truly a gift for me to share in these individuals lives being joined together as one. For more photography from previous weddings please visit us on the web at www.photographfee.com or call for a free consultation to become better acquainted with each other at
First Friday in Knoxville, Tennessee was a nice treat this past “First Friday” in the month of March 2011. The venue we chose to attend was the Sunshere at the World’s Fair Park in downtown Knoxville, Tennessee. It has a big jump on the elevator from floor 3 up to 4 with about 4 floors passing in between with no stops. When we got to level 6 it was a blast with music and art all around with Knoxvillians milling about as we do. The food was free with All Occasions providing some great appetizers and sliced meat. Also we enjoyed a couple of complimentary drinks until 7 PM. All in all it was a nice evening for all in attendance as I could perceive…until next go around. Justin R. Fee
Tim and Tracy Tramel are the featured groom and bride in these photos; the love was apparent throughout the day and evening with the rain ending just as they said “i do,” and the party began allowing all to have a great day and celebrate this incredible event!
