Brittany and Walker are so easy-going! We knew right away that they were the perfect clients for us. We all got along from the moment we met, so we knew their engagement session would be a breeze. They love anything from taking their dogs for a walk along the gravel paths of Shelby Farms, to a simple barbecue at home, to dancing in the rain (as you will soon see). We wanted to make sure to capture the essence of who they are.
Katy and Eric like to tell people with a smile, "a tornado brought us together." While perhaps a bit morbid, it's actually almost quite true! Although they didn't realize it until later, Katy and Eric were in the same 5th grade class together. But it was their sophomore year in college that would bring them back together.
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.
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!
Andrea and Jimmy are college sweethearts. They met on the balcony of their 4th floor dorm, where they discovered they were exactly 2 floors apart. She was in 253, and he was two floors above, in 453. She knew lots of other girls had their eye on him, but Andrea knew that 2 floors would be the farthest apart they would ever be. Six years later, Jimmy made sure of that when he proposed on that very same balcony where they met!
Accidental love is one of my favorite kinds of love stories! Laura and Evan didn't start out with romance in mind, but they ended up finding their way to it slowly instead. It was built carefully and without intention, and it ended up surprising them both.
Angelique and Marcus don't do anything halfway. They go all in. They have a style all their own, and their relationship reflects that. From their first date in Chicago, to their romantic proposal (Marcus re-created that Chicago first date here in Memphis!), and everything in between, Angelique and Marcus are confident about putting their own stamp on everything they do!
Elle and Vince met in college, and because of this, they will never tire of intelligent conversation! They both studied Classics. Vince now teaches Latin to high school kids in Mississippi, and ponders classic Greek architecture (especially columns). Elle loves Greek, her many animals, and being a student. So much so that she plans to sit in on a class or two after graduation. They both love books and knowledge, and I love them for that!
Amy and Sam are so natural and comfortable around each other, you'd think they'd have known each other for years. That they were childhood friends. You just can't envision one without the other. But in fact, they only knew each other about a year before they were engaged. Like Amy says, "When you know, you know."
