Brian Paul Rhea - Music | Emily McGonigle Photography

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of working with local speaker and singer/songwriter Brian Paul Rhea. Brian wanted his shoot to encompass a little bit of everything that he does. He's a writer and a speaker, and upon speaking with him, I discovered that he will often spend some quiet time reflecting and writing in his home or in one of his favorite coffee shops, so we took to the very awesome Coffee House @ Second and Bridge for the first part of his session. We also wanted to capture a very "Tennessee" kind of feel, to go along with the title of his forth-coming album and single, entitled... you guessed it... Tennessee!

Here are a few of my favorite shots from Brian's session:
