We sat with them over drinks one casual evening, learning a little more about each other and sharing lots of laughs. Bailey and Will booked us without ever meeting us first, so we wanted to get to know them a bit before we got them in front of our cameras. We spent very little time talking "business" and spent lots of time talking "life," and we loved them right away for that! By the time we all met again for their Tennessee farm engagement session, we were old friends! Which, as you will see, made for plenty of awesome photos! Keep a lookout for a couple of cow cameos!
We have such a special, stylish urban engagement session to share with you today! We had so much fun getting to know these two better. They absolutely KILLED their photos! Usually, the photos we take near the end of an engagement session are better than the ones at the beginning, because the couple is more relaxed. But these two were pros right from the start! It was so hard to choose favorites, so get ready for a loooong post...
We are sharing the dreamiest Annesdale Mansion engagement session today! Anahi and Eduardo turned up the heat and made my little photographer heart so happy. We definitely brought out Anahi's inner model. Yowzers. We also learned very quickly that I had to call Eduardo by his full name. Calling him "Ed" was just too confusing! But I think Eduardo fits him better, anyway. It's a very debonaire name! This session had everything - perfect weather, an abundance of style, and romance to spare!
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.
The second Ed and I met with Mallory and her sweet mom, we knew we hit the jackpot! We giggled the whole time we were chatting, and that's always a good sign! Mallory is a stunning girl who runs her own fashion blog. This girl knows style, and we were so excited to capture it on camera! We didn't meet Parker until the engagement session, but we loved him right away too. These two are so easy going, and so comfortable as a couple! After spending a couple hours with them, Ed and I didn't want to leave. We're so glad they will be one of our first 2018 weddings, just so that we can hang out with them again!
Friends, you have never seen a sunset until you have seen it in the California hills! There is something extra special about the light in California, especially when you watch the last of the day's rays sink below the trails in the distance and reflect itself on the brilliant water below. Fair warning: this is a long post! I have soooo many photos to share today from our time in Sacramento!
We made an instant bond with Erica and Travis. We felt attracted to their genuine and sweet hearts, but when we learned that they met and fell in love not far from the place that Ed and I did, we loved them even more! I have always wanted to photograph a couple in the Mississippi Delta. Ed and I began our lives together in the Delta, so when Erica and Travis told us that they wanted their engagement session there, we were totally on board! It felt so good to get back to our roots!
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!
Oh, you guys! I am SO over-the-moon excited to share this session today! I can't tell you how long I've been wanting to photograph a couple in a canoe. In formal clothes. In the lake. At sunset! It takes a special, adventurous couple to give us the trust and freedom for this type of shoot, and we found it in Val and Reed! They were not afraid of getting a little wet, and just WAIT until you see them standing up in the canoe! This one was one of our favorites for so many reasons!
