My name is Jeremy Wiggs. I am a photographer based in Knoxville, TN. I was born and raised here and proudly call East TN my home. It’s the place I choose to raise my family as well. I am a husband to my wonderful wife, Shannon, and I am a father to 3 incredible kids. Since my animals are such a big part of my life, I cannot leave out our 3 dogs and 3 cats. I have a zest for life and hope to make a positive impact on the lives of everyone I come in contact with. I love to laugh and have a good time. Life is way too short not to enjoy it.
My love for photography began when I was a kid trying to use my parent’s camera. Film was expensive back then, we didn’t have much money, so I didn’t get to use it as much as I would have liked. Life happened, kids happened, and though I was always the dad with a camera in his hands as my kids grew up, I never had the time to really develop my skills. My kids have always been very involved in athletics and I spent many years coaching them until they reached the high school level. Once they reached high school, I decided it was time to just be dad and step back from coaching and be there to support everything they had going on. It wasn’t until then that I was able to really pursue my love for photography, develop my skills, and realize it was something I just had to do as part of who I am.
I began shooting sports action, and still love capturing those memories and moments. I have expanded in recent years to portrait photography, in particular Senior Portraits. I love working with young people at this stage in their lives. There is no reward like seeing a young woman view an image of herself that I captured and to hear her say “Wow, am I really that beautiful” (True story). To witness a parent shed a tear because I was able to capture the personality of their child in an image they get to treasure forever.
While I could keep going on and on about myself here, I would rather continue a discussion with you in person as we plan your shoot!
