An early winter engagement session is always a favorite for us, especially when we get to work with a couple as awesome as Missy and Will! Winter in the South means that the leaves stay on the trees a little longer, and the colder temperatures don't kick in right away. We got the perfect day for this session! It was a little chilly, but nothing a warm sweater and scarf couldn't handle. A sudden strong breeze meant we got some awesome shots in a whirlwind of ginkgo leaves!
I can't believe it's been over a year since I first talked with Jessica. She and Tim don't have wedding photos that they love, so they decided to document their next adventure instead - their new home! She was so excited about the idea of this session that she emailed me even before their house was fully framed out! A year later, we were so thrilled to finally meet them in person. This session was a long time coming, and we can't wait to share their story!
The second Ed and I met with Mallory and her sweet mom, we knew we hit the jackpot! We giggled the whole time we were chatting, and that's always a good sign! Mallory is a stunning girl who runs her own fashion blog. This girl knows style, and we were so excited to capture it on camera! We didn't meet Parker until the engagement session, but we loved him right away too. These two are so easy going, and so comfortable as a couple! After spending a couple hours with them, Ed and I didn't want to leave. We're so glad they will be one of our first 2018 weddings, just so that we can hang out with them again!
Friends, you have never seen a sunset until you have seen it in the California hills! There is something extra special about the light in California, especially when you watch the last of the day's rays sink below the trails in the distance and reflect itself on the brilliant water below. Fair warning: this is a long post! I have soooo many photos to share today from our time in Sacramento!
We've known Caitlin for years. When our girls were small children, Caitlin and her family lived down the street from us, and she spent a lot of time at our house. Now she's all grown up and getting married (that makes me feel so old)! We were absolutely thrilled that she called us after she was engaged, although we wouldn't have given her much of a choice, haha! We had to reschedule this engagement session due to a typical Memphis popup storm, but I'm so glad we did! The weather this day was bright and sunny, just like Caitlin's smile!
These two are so stylish! Morgan told us that Jeremy was the more fashion-forward of the pair. After meeting them and spending an evening with them, we think that they are both equally fashionable! We lovelovelove a groom that dresses up for the engagement session! When Jeremy showed up in a tie, vest, and jacket, we knew we struck gold, but he went above and beyond with a pocket square and fancy socks! Morgan made his right arm look so good with her classic, dressy style. We always recommend dresses for our ladies, but she one-upped us when she pulled out the red-bottomed shoes to match! If you're looking for fashion inspiration today, you've come to the right place!
We made an instant bond with Erica and Travis. We felt attracted to their genuine and sweet hearts, but when we learned that they met and fell in love not far from the place that Ed and I did, we loved them even more! I have always wanted to photograph a couple in the Mississippi Delta. Ed and I began our lives together in the Delta, so when Erica and Travis told us that they wanted their engagement session there, we were totally on board! It felt so good to get back to our roots!
These two are getting married on Saturday. Like, in two days. Like, in "get your act together and do the blog post already, Amy!" We are SO excited to witness the beginning of their new journey, and if it's anything like their Memphis engagement session, we know the wedding is going to be fabulous!! In the meantime, we are so excited to share their engagement session!
We first met Halie and Tyler over a late-night Skype meeting. Even over long distance, we connected immediately, and we knew they were our perfect couple. They are fun, love to laugh, and they are not afraid to be corny! Like, Dirty Dancing corny. They even reenacted the famous lift scene from my favorite movie during their downtown Memphis engagement session - wait until you see the photos!
We first met with Akeilah and Tony back in July of LAST YEAR, more than a full year before their wedding. We loved them right away, and it didn't hurt that we spent more time laughing with them than anything else. So, you can imagine how eager we were to see them again, and even more excited to get them in front of our cameras!
