29 Jun Memphis Rainy Day Engagement Session
This is the engagement session that almost didn’t happen. Instead, it turned out even better because we went ahead with it anyway! Maggie and Jeffrey live in Nashville, so we looked at the forecast and chose a day that looked nice and sunny for their engagement session in Memphis. And it was… until it wasn’t.
Two hours before we were scheduled to meet them, the skies opened up and it started pouring. It was storming so hard that our power went out at our home. Maggie and I started frantically texting each other, trying to decide what to do. Not only were they in town for these photos, but she had already had her hair and makeup done. It finally stopped raining, but the wind outside was crazy, and I knew beautifully styled hair and wind do not mix. An hour before shooting time, we made the decision to go ahead and try. We decided to move the location to Maggie’s family’s home, since there was plenty of concrete. We didn’t want her heels sinking into newly made puddles and mud.
By the time we arrived at her home, the rain was gone and the wind had died down. We had an awesome time with them, and I loved the neighborhood! It was the perfect place for a romantic rainy day engagement session. The sun even peeked out of the clouds for some beautiful sunset photos!
Memphis Rainy Day Engagement Session
Maggie and Jeffrey met while waiting in line with friends. They struck up a conversation, then went their separate ways. Later in the night, Maggie saw him from across the room, went over to him, and tapped him on the shoulder. They continued their conversation, and never stopped. That’s one thing we love about Maggie: she is not an indecisive person. She knows what she likes, and she knows right away! Jeffrey must have liked that about her too, because he decided he doesn’t want to spend his life without her.
These two are the perfect counterbalance for each other. Maggie is decisive, selfless, and organized. She makes life easier for everyone. She shares her time and talents willingly, and makes a great host! We learned all these things about her in less than an hour. Jeffrey is carefree and jovial. He kept us all laughing and was always willing to go along with whatever we asked him to do. And he does everything with a genuine smile! He is a happy guy, but he is most happy when he is with Maggie.
Maggie and Jeffrey, we are SO glad this engagement session worked out! Thank you for being so flexible and for hanging out with us after the rain. It was so much fun getting to know you both, and we can’t WAIT for the wedding! In the meantime, enjoy this little sneak peek of our time with you!
