21 Jul Colorful Urban Memphis Engagement Session
Sam and JT have such a fun love story. As every good love story should be, it perfectly embodies their relationship. Theirs is one composed of lots of laughs. Like, lots. These two just can’t help but to have fun around each other. Sam told me that their favorite thing to do together… is nothing. Because even when they are doing nothing, they enjoy each other’s company. They have an uncanny knack for turning nothing into something fun! As you will soon see, this includes their urban Memphis engagement session. I don’t think we’ve ever had a session filled with so much joy and mirth!
When we were chatting about this wedding plans, Sam and JT made it abundantly clear that the dance floor was going to be featured prominently at their celebration. They do enjoy dancing together, but their wedding dance floor will have a deeper meaning. Fate first threw them together on a dance floor. They were both out one night, separately with friends, when they ended up dancing together. Neither wanting to seem too forward, they didn’t exchange numbers or even get each other’s names.
But serendipity had a different idea when it prolonged a story that seemingly had reached its end. Sam and JT met up again, accidentally, when they discovered that he was the roommate of a mutual friend! This time, they made sure to exchange numbers, and they’ve been together ever since.

Their proposal story follows the same vein that has defined their romance. Filled with missteps and laughs, it couldn’t be more perfectly fit for them! JT knew he wanted to start the wintery night with dinner, but didn’t want the extravagance of an fancy restaurant to give away his plan. In the end, he used a gift card he had on hand in order to play down the fancy! His plan worked so well that Sam didn’t shower or dress up.
While they were at dinner, JT had a friend call Sam with a sad, invented breakup story in order to get her to the Peabody Hotel. He had coordinated with friends who were supposed to hide at the Peabody after dinner, but instead, they were in plain view when JT walked in with Sam. She went and sat with them and absently pushed away a platter of champagne glasses that were meant to toast the newly engaged couple. She was oblivious to the real reason they were there! JT had tried some romantic conversation on the walk over, but Sam was only concerned for her friend.
Finally, resigned to the direction the night was taking, JT convinced Sam to take a photo in front of the iconic Peabody Christmas tree, where he got down on one knee. She suddenly realized all her friends were there for her, and not there to console her friend after all!
Since their story started downtown, we all thought that downtown would be perfect for Sam and JT’s urban Memphis engagement session. Sam and JT, we had so much fun laughing with you two! We can’t wait for the wedding!
