Jordanna and Justin have known each other since preschool. Preschool! They have class photos of themselves in preschool and 2nd grade where they were standing only feet from each other. They didn’t know then that they were destined for each other, but they never would have ended up together if the path that led them to each other didn’t start there.
It’s been awhile since we’ve done this series, and I don’t know why! I always love showing and talking about my favorite photos that Ed takes, so we’re going to be bringing this back, hopefully regularly! *crossing fingers*
Spring is kicking into high gear here in the South, so we are doing lots of engagement sessions lately! We absolutely LOVE doing engagement sessions. It’s our time to really get to know our couples, and we love hearing all their love stories! It’s such an honor for us to be able to capture this time in their lives. Engagements fly by so fast and this special time gets overlooked by the whirlwind of wedding planning. It’s so great to take a day and really celebrate this time!
There are some couples that, every once in awhile, come along and make us realize how lucky we are to know them. That make us better. That care more about others than anything else. That, even on their own wedding day, on a day that’s supposed to be all about them, somehow make it about everyone else. Michelle and Joe are that kind of couple.
We knew we loved Bethany and Zac the minute we met them! Bethany has style in abundance, and a sense of humor that keeps everyone laughing all day. Her smile lights up the room, and she is the most loyal friend. Her determination is enviable. Zac is tender and quiet where Bethany is outgoing and boisterous, in all the best ways. He is extremely heartfelt and generous, and just recently raised over $200,000 for the Boys and Girls Club. Yet Zac is fun-loving, while always taking charge when needed. Together, they make a mirthful, organized team. In short, they have everything they need, and they compliment each other perfectly!
Every year, Ed and I try to go to at least one photography conference or workshop. We always want to keep growing, and we know that there is always something we can improve. We’ve been doing this long enough that we know we have the technical knowledge to make a well-exposed, nicely composed photograph. But that’s not enough for us. We always strive for creative, beautiful, fine art photography. If nothing else, these learning experiences are great for creative inspiration!
Jacquelyn and John came all the way to Memphis from Colorado to escape the snow for a hospitality-driven Southern Spring wedding. So naturally, it would snow in Memphis on their wedding day! As it turns out, they only wanted to be married, and the weather did not stop them from enjoying their day to the fullest!
