02 Mar alexandria + drew: promised. a memphis brooks museum engagement.
They passed each other on campus a couple times, but didn’t really run in the same circles. They knew each other’s face and name, and that was about it. Until the early morning that they both showed up for their certification exams. She passed him in an otherwise empty parking lot and did a double take. Literally. He followed suit, and they found themselves just staring at each other. Then it got awkward, so they said their hellos and goodbyes and went on their way. But this time, they remembered more than a name.
Alexandria remembered Drew when she was having a get together with friends and invited him along. He remembered her and readily agreed. And from that day forward, they were inseparable. Their first official date was on July 4th, and exactly a year later, Drew asked Alexandria to be his wife. They celebrated with fireworks, but Alexandria could only look at her husband-to-be.
Ed and I met Alexandria and Drew at the Brooks Museum for their engagement session. Alexandria and Drew were naturals in front of the camera, and we had a blast wandering the grounds and capturing their love.
While I was getting the above shot, Ed was being a little more creative.
Though still a bit chilly, we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day.
Photo on the left is Ed’s, and is one of my faves!
We were obviously having a great time!
Seriously. Could they be any more perfect together?
Alexandria and Drew are gamers, and one of their favorite things is to snuggle up with their gameboys. So they brought them along for the shoot. I love it when couples add the little details that make their relationship unique!
Sunset is my favorite time for photos.
Alexandria, you are a true beauty.
Ed captured this amazing shot.
Drew didn’t think he was photogenic. Uh huh. Right.
I’ll finish up with this steamy one.
Alex and Drew, thanks for hanging out with us for an evening. Not only did we get some amazing photos, but we really enjoyed getting to know you better. Let’s do coffee again soon!
