11 Oct Orion Hill Memphis Fall Engagement
Oh, you guys! We have such a treat for you today! I am in love with this engagement session for so many reasons:
- Hannah and AJ are the sweetest couple! We loved getting to know them better.
- We shot Hannah’s mom’s wedding nearly seven years ago, and we are thrilled to get to see everyone again for another wedding!
- We were so lucky to be able to use Orion Hill for this shoot. The property will be open for weddings next year, but we got to be the first photographers to photograph a couple on the grounds!
- Hannah and AJ are total BABES, and a photographers’ dream!
AJ is a quiet, caring man whose heart matches Hannah’s. He arranged an incredibly romantic proposal on a trip to Chilé. Chilé! During a private tour through the mountains on horseback, he presented Hannah with the perfect ring and a very important question. Once back in the States, they quickly jumped into wedding planning, which happily included an email to us!
We met Hannah when her mom married the man of her dreams in a sweet, intimate ceremony on Christmas Eve almost seven years ago. I remember thinking how completely good-hearted the entire family was! Not only were they genuinely kind people, but they all valued family, the in-between moments, and memories. So we were thrilled when Hannah contacted us to tell us it was now her own turn to get married!
Orion Hill Memphis Fall Engagement
When we were planning their engagement session, Hannah expressed a desire for a natural, woodsy, yet Southern location. We threw around some ideas, then I remembered that Shelby at Orion Hill Events had extended an invitation for us to come use the property for an engagement session. I thought Hannah and AJ would be the ideal couple to try it out, and I’m so glad they agreed!
Orion Hill was not only exactly what Hannah and AJ were looking for, but it is a beautiful property with tons of photographic options! I fell in love with its history as well as its cedar-lined long, gravel drive. I have been dying to photograph a couple on this drive, and I am happy to report that it turned out even better than I imagined! The Southern-style manor house, lake area, and incredible sunset in a nearby wooded area was just the icing on the cake.
Hannah and AJ, thank you SO much for trusting us to document this special time in your lives! Not only did you take all our advice to heart, but you trusted us to choose the location for these amazing photos. That means more to us than you know. Enjoy this little sneak peek, and I know you’ll agree that it was the right choice!
