17 Nov Memphis Fall Overton Park Engagement
We absolutely LOVE it when we get to work with a family more than once! We shot Ellen’s wedding a couple years ago, so when her sister Emily called us for her own wedding, we were thrilled! Not only are these two sisters both gorgeous (I’m the luckiest photographer!), but they belong to the sweetest family. Like her sister, Emily has chosen a good, handsome, and funny man to accompany her through life. We had so much fun meeting Josh and getting to know these two better!
Emily and Josh were high school sweethearts, and they have been together for years. They both knew they would end up married. They had talked about it, and they knew it was almost time. So Josh had his work cut out for him when he started to plan a surprise proposal!
Emily and Josh had already picked out the perfect ring, but had to wait for it to be sized. In the meantime, Josh planned out the steps he would need to surprise Emily. He thought of everything. He called Emily’s family and got them in on the plan. They would take her to the spot he had picked out, and he even got a friend to hide in the bushes to photograph the big moment (my kind of groom!). All he needed was the ring!
The big day came, and still no ring. The jeweler had promised Josh it would be ready, but he had yet to hear back from them. He started to sweat and was worried he would have to call the whole thing off when they jeweler finally called. He was able to run pick it up and immediately head to surprise Emily, just in time! As she walked over the bridge he had chosen, he was standing on the other side in a suit and tie, ring in hand. They were engaged!
Emily and Josh, we know this is only the first of many funny stories that will kick off your lives together! Thank you so much for hanging out with us for a beautiful Fall evening, and thank you beyond measure for calling us to photograph your love story, even before you had a date and venue. We love you for that, and so much more! We can’t wait for the wedding!
In the meantime, enjoy some of our favorites from your engagement session!
Emily and Josh were so relaxed, and such naturals!
Emily, you are stunning! A special thank you to Kasey Acuff for bringing out Emily’s natural beauty!
