Josie Kay Photography bio picture
  • Hey there! I’m Josie Kay

    American Poet, and one of my favorites, Mary Oliver asked; “So tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one WILD + PRECIOUS life?” Her question resonated with me personally and professionally and those two words became a mantra to drive my life and work.
    Personally, I am in love with the idea of life being WILD + PRECIOUS. Because it is. It’s fast + slow, big + small, crazy + simple…wild + precious. Life is full of these moments. Everyone has a story and I’m here to tell it.

Alyssa + Kevin | Engagement | Nashville, TN

Oh, boy. This is a special one. I get to photograph dozens of awesome couples throughout the year, but this particular couple is really special to me.

Alyssa was my very first friend in Nashville. I was the craigslist killer roommate she didn’t want who moved into the vacant room upstairs. After a while (5mins) she warmed up to me and realized I was a nice (non-killer) midwest gal. We have been through countless movie nights, walks, road trips, girls nights, dance parties and Fox days (playing hooky + going canoeing!).

Alyssa has been the best roommate and friend a girl could ever have. She’s smart, funny, adventurous, so full of life, always up for activities (she brought fireworks to my birthday party) and has theeeeee best laugh.

I met Kevin my first week at the new house, I’m pretty sure he came over and watch Glee with us. I liked him already. I love him for loving my best friend so well. It’s easy to see how he let’s Alyssa be herself and I love to watch her light up around him. You will see. She didn’t stop laughing or smiling the entire shoot.

Kevin + Alyssa,

CONGRATULATIONS! I love you both! I am so excited for your future together and wish you nothing but blessings, happiness and adventures!



we shot these on Mother’s day, so we had to include the fur babies


one of Alyssa’s greatest gifts is being able to talk anyone into anything. There’s no way Kev wanted to swing and there’s no way in hell I’d ever take a shot this cheesy,

yet here it is.

golden hour was good to us.

Kev said it best, “this is Alyssa’s perfect day; swinging, puppies and sparklers” #soAlyssa
