I think I speak for every photographer on the planet right now when I say that we are so ready to start shooting again! Thanks to Covid, we've all been cooped up, trying to find other ways to express our creativity. We were thrilled when Memphis began reopening, allowing us to safely photograph couples in love, from a 6 foot distance.
The odds were against these two ever meeting. They didn't go to the same school or work at the same place. They weren't even from the same town. But chance would have it that they would meet. They would bump into each other serendipitously, and...
Anne-Sophie is just as her name sounds - smart, beautiful, sophisticated, stylish, and French. At least, she comes from a French family. One of the joys of first meeting her and her mother was her mom's accent. I could have listened to her all day! Since Anne-Sophie was very busy with med school during most of her engagement, her mom was very involved in the wedding planning. Ed and I got to know her right alongside Anne-Sophie and Dalton, and we are so glad! Like Anne-Sophie, her mom is such a sweet, generous person. We loved getting to know both families during this gorgeous formal Cadre wedding!
Sam and JT have such a fun love story. As every good love story should be, it perfectly embodies their relationship. Theirs is one composed of lots of laughs. Like, lots. These two just can't help but to have fun around each other. Sam told me that their favorite thing to do together... is nothing. Because even when they are doing nothing, they enjoy each other's company. They have an uncanny knack for turning nothing into something fun! As you will soon see, this includes their urban Memphis engagement session. I don't think we've ever had a session filled with so much joy and mirth!
Anne-Sophie and Dalton have been in a long-distance relationship for most of the time they've been together. They are also both medical students, so free time is rare and precious. These two know bestt how to make the most of every minute that they are in the same city. They squeeze in visits when they can, and they make every second count, even if it's just sitting on the couch binge watching the latest Netflix show. We were so happy that we could find a time to get them together in Memphis for their engagement session, and we loved watching them soak up every minute together!
As a photographer, I used to be deathly afraid of rain on a wedding day. A wedding is something you can't reschedule due to weather! I would panic about finding dry locations and not having those glowy sun shots. Luckily, now I know better. I know that there's nothing a little rain can do that a few umbrellas and an awesome couple won't fix!
