27 Sep Autumn Memphis River Engagement
It’s officially Fall now, so I’m going to pretend that we photographed this Memphis river engagement session while the temperatures were blissfully cool and fresh fallen leaves crunched underfoot.
But that is not reality.
Reality is that, while it was almost Fall, the temperatures were still uncomfortably hot. Reality is that Alicia and Charles both donned jackets for the sake of the photos, but they quickly removed them after the shutter stopped clicking. Reality is that the leaves on the trees are still stubbornly green and remain fixed to their branches.
However, the reality is ALSO that Alicia and Charles both brought a sense of Fall to their river engagement and made it their own. They added touches of autumn color with their wardrobes. Their warm smiles and spirits made us forget the summer temperatures. Their laughter and fun personalities made getting to know them the focus of the day, and we all barely noticed the weather at all. The best part is that I can look at these photos and see only their love, their special relationship, and maybe even a hint of Autumn!
Autumn Memphis River Engagement
Alicia and Charles booked us through email, so their engagement session was the first time we met them face to face. We never quite know what to expect when that happens, but with these two, we had nothing to worry about! We became fast friends and we quickly dispersed the awkwardness that meeting strangers can bring. This is one reason that we believe the engagement session is so important! It gets our couples used to being photographed, but it also gives us a chance to all become friends so that the wedding day isn’t uncomfortable.
Alicia and Charles have a quiet, intimate relationship. They are tender and sweet with each other. They don’t take each other for granted. Charles is a biotech scientist and brings the logical thoughtfulness to their romance. Alicia, on the other hand, is currently in seminary and brings heart and faith. They are on opposite spectrums where work is concerned, but exactly right for each other in so many ways! And of course, we can’t deny that they make a gorgeous couple!
Alicia and Charles, we enjoyed getting to know you both better and we can’t wait for your December wedding (and to meet your Brazilian family, Charles)! In the meantime, enjoy this little sneak peek of our evening together on the River!
