Memphis Fall Engagement with Stylish Red Dress

Laura + Joe | Memphis, Tennessee

Hello 2017! I’ve been super bad about updating the blog with our recent shoots, but I have a good excuse! We shot SO many sessions in November! We don’t have a long fall season here in the South, so we have to jump on what we do get. Here in Memphis, November really gives us the best for Fall as far as temperature and color goes, so we stayed busy the whole month. And that means we have so much to share!

We spent half of December editing all those shoots, and the other half celebrating the holidays with our family. We got nearly two whole weeks with absolutely no work, and it was a wonderful way to end the year! That little break got us even more excited for 2017. It’s going to be a very good year!

These two will be getting married on the beach in just a few months! We can’t wait for their destination wedding, but in the meantime, we had a blast hanging out with them, getting to know them better. Laura has the cutest smile (with dimples!) that Joe knows just how to coax out of her (it didn’t take much!). They both love the outdoors, so we all agreed that featuring nature in their engagement photos would be the way to go.

It takes very little to make me happy (though Ed might disagree!). Sun. Fall leaves. Gravel paths. Add in some water and a long red dress, and we’ve got perfection! Ladies, if you’re ever on the fence about wearing a long, flowy dress for your engagement session, DO IT! Especially if it’s red. Just wait till you see sunset in that dress!

Laura and Joe, we couldn’t have asked for a better day for photos, or a better couple to share it with. It was so much fun exploring all those hidden paths, especially with your easy smiles and laughs. We loved capturing the joy and love you two share, and we can’t wait to hit the beach with you in just a few short months!

    Great pictures! The shrubs are Calicarpa americana, or Beautyberry.

    It’s hard to believe that Janie’s sweet little baby was getting married. Laura you and I share the same birthday quite a few years apart. Your mother would be so proud of you. Congratulations on your wedding to such a wonderful young man.
