25 Apr Downtown Memphis and Overton Park Engagement
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!
Halie and Tyler have had their own little share of fame themselves. Their engagement made the headlines in the newspapers when Tyler dropped to his knee after they both finished the St. Jude marathon last year. The cover photo shows a tired but tearful Halie as she nods her “yes!” Lucky for us, these two are used to – and love! – photos!
Halie and Tyler met while in school studying to be optometrists. They included lots of little nods to their profession in their engagement session. Tyler wore socks with glasses on them and a glasses-shaped tie clip. They even brought along their own kind of lens! They use a special lens that’s specific to their jobs (sorry, Tyler, I forget what it’s called!), and we got some fun, upside-down photos of them through it.
Tyler had a special lens-shaped case made for the engagement ring that says “yours are the sweetest eyes I’ve ever seen.” Ahhh! I die with the cuteness! As if that’s not enough, Halie made sure to point out the hidden word “always” underneath her diamond that Tyler had custom-made. She knew I would appreciate it, as a fellow Harry Potter aficionado!
Halie and Tyler, we decided we want to clone you two so that we can photograph you over and over!! Ed and I can’t even begin to describe the amount of fun we had with you. We love your sense of adventure, and of course, your no-fear attitude toward all things corny! We’re so excited to do it all over again for the wedding! In the meantime, we hope you enjoy a few of our favorites from your engagement session!
I had to include these Dirty Dancing “fails!” Seriously, these two are fearless. This had us laughing for days! Don’t worry, no Halies were harmed in the making of these photos! 😉
