17 Jan Sunny Winter Midtown Memphis Engagement Session
I had been waiting to meet this girl for months! Catherine doesn’t currently live in Memphis, so we had our initial meeting over the phone. Even though we couldn’t see each other, we just clicked! You know how phone calls can be difficult when you can’t see body language? We didn’t have that problem. We bonded over succulents, love, and Southern charm, and I just couldn’t wait to meet her face to face! We finally got our chance when she and Trent were in Memphis for the holidays. We scheduled their winter engagement session while they were here, and we lucked out with a sunny day!
Catherine told me that the most important thing to her for these photos (other than showcasing their love, of course) was making sure Trent was comfortable in front of the camera. I asked them if they took a lot of photos together, and while they take a fair amount, they didn’t always think they felt natural. I assured them that both their smiles and laughs would be genuine, because we were going to have a great time!
And we did! There was so much laughing! I knew I was going to love these two, but I didn’t know just how MUCH I was going to love these two! If it looks like Catherine and Trent are having so much fun, it’s because they are! I mean, I tell Ed all the time how funny I am, but he never believes me. Well, here’s proof. I am clearly HILARIOUS!

A fun story about the photos in the magnolia tree (be sure to scroll down!): Catherine suggested the tree because her mom loves magnolias. She wanted to make sure that they had some photos that mom loves too. That is super sweet! But even though we started out taking those “just for mom,” they turned out to be some of my favorites!! The light was gorgeous (here’s where I make that angelic “ahhhhh” sound), and they’re just so Old South (especially paired with Catherine’s borrowed vintage dress). I LOVE THEM!
The best part about this midtown Memphis engagement session? Ed and I were laughing as much as they were. This was not one of those awkward-when-you-first-meet times. We were instant friends. And I cannot WAIT for the wedding!
Catherine and Trent, thank you so much for taking time out of your busy holiday schedules to let us whisk you away from family for a bit. We’re SO glad we finally got to meet! And even though it was cold outside, your warm hearts and smiles make these photos look like spring instead of winter. You guys were so much fun, and I know the wedding will be a blast!! Enjoy this little sneak peek of our chilly time together!
