We are so excited to share this gorgeous Memphis Columns wedding with you today! This was the last of our 2017 weddings, and it was one for the books! If I could clone this wedding and shoot it over and over, I would in a heartbeat. Everything about it was perfect. There were happy tears, lots of hugs, and TONS of laughing (and the sweetest daddy daughter First Look)! Every detail was beautiful. Best of all, Morgan and Jeremy have hearts of gold, and we are so proud to call them friends. This wedding was definitely the grand finale of our year!

We have such a fun urban engagement session to share today! We didn't get the chance to meet Derek before getting him in front of our camera, but we weren't worried a bit. Jennifer had already told us that they were both extremely photogenic, and she wasn't kidding! These two thrive in front of the camera, and it was such a treat to photograph them. As you will see, they both have the perfect amount of sass, romance, and style!

Ed and I have been looking for an excuse to go to Old Dominick Distillery, so we were thrilled when Elizabeth and Sam wanted to do their engagement photos there! I mean, obviously, Ed and I are always on board for anywhere that may have a good cocktail hour, but I was so excited to find that their rooftop is filled with succulents!! If you follow me on Instagram, you may already know that I am obsessed with succulents! The whole space is such a cool venue, and we're so glad we got to share our first time there with these two lovebirds!

This chilly downtown Memphis winter engagement may have been the coldest one we did all year! Susan and Brad were are rockstars! Not only did they tolerate the cold temperatures while smiling for the camera, they did it without complaining once! We were able to get the last of the Fall leaves in a few of the photos, then finished up with the holiday lights along Main Street. Ed and I loved every minute we spent with them! These two are the sweetest people, and we already know how lucky we are to have them in our lives.

We love when a wedding day is all about the marriage. Not the flowers, the food, or the big party at the end. But the opening page of a love story, one that will last a lifetime. This wedding was one of those. When Erica turned a tearful face to Travis and promised to be as patient, kind, and loving as he has been to her, we knew she meant every word. And when he vowed to keep her safe, to support her, and to always love her, there was no doubt that he spoke the truth. This day was only a formality, because they had already devoted their hearts to each other long ago. They understood that the party at the end was really only the beginning, and that made it so much more than a celebration!

Sometimes it rains on a wedding day. Sometimes, it even pours. When life surprises you with unexpected thunderstorms, you have a choice. You can be as dark and foreboding as the rain clouds, or you can be the bright, sunny day that chases them away. When LaQuitta and Mario woke up on the morning of their civil wedding ceremony, rain clouds were threatening in the distance. By the time they were saying "I do," the rain was thundering down outside. But their smiles never waned and their attitudes never darkened - they were married, and that's all that mattered! They had eyes only for each other and cared only about their start of their new life. And because of them, this day was all the right kinds of sunny... on the inside.

These two are getting married on Saturday. Like, in two days. Like, in "get your act together and do the blog post already, Amy!" We are SO excited to witness the beginning of their new journey, and if it's anything like their Memphis engagement session, we know the wedding is going to be fabulous!! In the meantime, we are so excited to share their engagement session!

We first met with Akeilah and Tony back in July of LAST YEAR, more than a full year before their wedding.  We loved them right away, and it didn't hurt that we spent more time laughing with them than anything else. So, you can imagine how eager we were to see them again, and even more excited to get them in front of our cameras!

When I first spoke with Myesha on the phone, she asked me if I had ever seen Sex and the City. Right then I knew that we could be bffs! As we talked about our love of Carrie Bradshaw, New York city, and Mr. Big, we fell into an easy rhythm that usually comes with years of friendship. And yet I had never met her! I'm always blown away by how lucky we are to meet so many amazing people while doing what we do. Especially when there's a pair of Manolos involved!

We don't break the rules often. But special circumstances call for exceptions! With this engagement session, we broke ALL the rules. 1. Only shoot right before sunset. 2. Don't shoot on holidays. 3. NEVER shoot when it rains. 4. Only shoot when the temperature is between 50 and 80 degrees. Yeah, we broke every single one of those. And you know what? I'd do it again. This special New Year's Eve engagement session turned out to be one of our favorites!
