She had watched his dog once, before they even met. She was keeping a friend company one evening, while the friend was dog sitting. She got a tour of this then-stranger's apartment. Even saw where he slept. So that later, when they finally bumped into each other, she could say "I've seen your bedroom!," and it wasn't even creepy.
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've known Caitlin for years. When our girls were small children, Caitlin and her family lived down the street from us, and she spent a lot of time at our house. Now she's all grown up and getting married (that makes me feel so old)! We were absolutely thrilled that she called us after she was engaged, although we wouldn't have given her much of a choice, haha! We had to reschedule this engagement session due to a typical Memphis popup storm, but I'm so glad we did! The weather this day was bright and sunny, just like Caitlin's smile!
Brittany and Walker are so easy-going! We knew right away that they were the perfect clients for us. We all got along from the moment we met, so we knew their engagement session would be a breeze. They love anything from taking their dogs for a walk along the gravel paths of Shelby Farms, to a simple barbecue at home, to dancing in the rain (as you will soon see). We wanted to make sure to capture the essence of who they are.
Katy and Eric like to tell people with a smile, "a tornado brought us together." While perhaps a bit morbid, it's actually almost quite true! Although they didn't realize it until later, Katy and Eric were in the same 5th grade class together. But it was their sophomore year in college that would bring them back together.
Jordanna and Justin have known each other since preschool. Preschool! They have class photos of themselves in preschool and 2nd grade where they were standing only feet from each other. They didn't know then that they were destined for each other, but they never would have ended up together if the path that led them to each other didn't start there.
Accidental love is one of my favorite kinds of love stories! Laura and Evan didn't start out with romance in mind, but they ended up finding their way to it slowly instead. It was built carefully and without intention, and it ended up surprising them both.
Angelique and Marcus don't do anything halfway. They go all in. They have a style all their own, and their relationship reflects that. From their first date in Chicago, to their romantic proposal (Marcus re-created that Chicago first date here in Memphis!), and everything in between, Angelique and Marcus are confident about putting their own stamp on everything they do!
Amy and Sam are so natural and comfortable around each other, you'd think they'd have known each other for years. That they were childhood friends. You just can't envision one without the other. But in fact, they only knew each other about a year before they were engaged. Like Amy says, "When you know, you know."
