Midtown Memphis Engagement

Kelli + Josh’s Midtown Memphis Fusion Video

We love engagement shoots! Unlike a wedding, we don’t have a timeline we need to stick to, and we can work around the weather. It’s a time for us to be creative and focus solely on the photos. But our favorite thing about them is that we get to hang out with our favorite couples and get to know them better!

Alex's 10th Birthday

Happy 10th Birthday, Alex!

My son is 10.

Wow. Every year it surprises me. You’d think I’d get used to it, it being on the same day and all. Sometimes I want to be able to freeze time and keep him just the way he is. Then another year comes and goes, and I find that I like this age best so far.

So far, I like 10 best. So I guess growing up isn’t too bad.

Master Bedroom Makeover

Some Progress on Our Master Bedroom Makeover

Having four kids, a home, and owning a small business really means I have THREE full-time jobs. Our calendar is so jam-packed and we have kids going everywhere, all the time. We barely have time to do grocery shopping, much less clean the house, cook, or organize anything around here. Something is always broken. Something is always left undone. Something is always a mess.

Also, I suck at domesticity.

Atrium at Overton Square Engagement Party

Memphis Atrium at Overton Square Engagement Party

I firmly believe that the couples that Ed and I get along with best are those that have similar values as our own. I think that’s true for a lot of relationships, actually. We easily build a rapport and intuitively know what is most important to them. This makes photographing their story and their important moments so much easier! Ed and I have been married long enough that we can tell you in an instant what is most important to us: family, friends, and living a good life to the fullest. We love to celebrate anything (we don’t need much of an excuse for a party!), and as long as our loved ones are near, we’re good.

Memphis Spring Creek Ranch Wedding

Ellen + Bobby: a Memphis Spring Creek Ranch Wedding

Weddings are awesome. Seriously. Who doesn’t love a day filled with beautiful flowers, a gorgeous dress, meaningful ceremonies, and a big party? But I love it even more when we get a couple who remembers what a wedding is truly all about. A celebration of Love. With a capital L. Emotion. A new life together. Ellen and Bobby kept their day about all the important things and never forgot why they were celebrating. It was a day filled with lots of happy tears, tender snuggles, and lots and lots of love! It was awesome.

Downtown Memphis Engagement

Anne + Alex’s Downtown Memphis Engagement Fusion Video

Ed and I love downtown Memphis. It has a little bit of everything… great restaurants (I’m always thinking about food!), fabulous city and river views, fun nightlife, and everything from gardens and fountains to grungy alleys and abandoned warehouses. There’s always something interesting downtown, especially for a photographer who never goes anywhere without her camera!

Coptic Orthodox Wedding

Atina + Drew: a Memphis Coptic Orthodox Wedding

Because Atina and Drew live out of town, but were planning a Memphis wedding, I talked with her over the phone a few times before the big day. She explained that they were having an Egyptian Coptic Orthodox wedding and asked if I was familiar with the ceremony. I wasn’t, so she explained it perfectly… “Have you ever seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding? Well, it’s like that, but Egyptian instead of Greek.”

Downtown Memphis Bluffs Engagement

Erica + Danny | a Downtown Memphis Bluffs Engagement

When talking about their relationship, Danny often says of Erica, “It’s easy to find someone who likes the same things you do, but it’s hard to find someone who hates the same things!” Like most couples, Erica and Danny have a lot in common, but it’s their thinking outside of the box that really drew them together. We met Erica and Danny downtown on the Memphis bluffs for their engagement session because that’s where their story starts.

Memphis Law Engagement

Atina + Drew: a Memphis Law Engagement

We have quite a few clients who are not from Memphis, or not currently living in Memphis. Usually, these clients still have family and friends here, so it just makes sense to wed in Memphis. Occasionally, a couple will choose to have a destination wedding in Memphis. But either way, if the couple doesn’t live in the area, it can be difficult to arrange an engagement session. If possible, we try to take the engagement session to them, but travel is not always an option. We always, always suggest that our clients have an engagement session, even if it’s just a few days before the wedding. Such was the case with Atina and Drew!

jessie's 15th birthday

A Recap of Jessie’s 15th Birthday!

We have a large family. And I don’t just mean us. Yes, two parents and four children is not exactly small, but when you count in grandparents, aunts, uncles, and nephews, it gets even bigger. The best bonus of a big family? Instant party! Jessie’s 15th birthday snuck up on us over the weekend, so we were especially thankful to all our family who came and made it so special for her!
