31 Oct Kem + David: a Memphis Family Lifestyle Session
A wedding is about more than just the joining of two people. It’s the moment when a new family is made, the coming together of two families who were separate before that day. It’s the fork in the road where two paths come together and continue on as one road. It’s about love. Romantic love between the bride and the groom. Love of friends who are not joined by blood, but by their joy and support of a union. And perhaps greatest of all, the love of a family that just doubled in size.
Kem and David are getting married tomorrow. They are not only committing themselves to each other, but to a new family that will finally be official! Kem has two beautiful children who are also coming into their union. Tomorrow, she will have the three most important people in her life joined as one family, while all her loved ones look on and celebrate with them.
When Kem and David came to us, they had already had their engagement photos done. So, as an alternative, we planned a family lifestyle session for them that would showcase their love for each other, as well as their love for their family. They did not want an ordinary portrait session. They wanted a session that would tell a story, and show them as they truly are together. As a family, they love to do everything from travel the world together, to going to the movies, to dinner on the couch, watching TV. They all get along wonderfully, and they are full of laughter and fun!
When Kem and David decided to get married, they decided they didn’t want to wait. They wanted to get married NOW. So they entered a whirlwind engagement, and have been planning their wedding in only three months. Their lives are constantly full, and these past months have only added to the bustle. So it was nice to take some time out to just be together as a family, and enjoy this time in their lives.
We met Kem, David, Breona, and Solomon in downtown Memphis so that we could capture the hustle, Southern-ness, and happiness that is their urban life.
They are all naturals in front of the camera!
Every one of them has such style! From their heads down to their socks.
We had to grab just a few of Kem and David by themselves.
But they are happiest when everyone is together!
One of my favorites! Love the faces that kids make at each other. Bre and Solomon get along famously.
David plays a little piano, and we took a moment inside Bleu for him to serenade his bride. The blue piano was a must!
Kem and David, thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedules to spend some time with us documenting love. You have a gorgeous family, and we cannot WAIT to see everyone come together tomorrow! It’s going to be a blast!
