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!

We met Ashley and David over drinks, not too long ago. As one drink turned into two, then dinner, Ed and I knew we could talk with them all night long! We couldn't wait to see them again for their downtown Memphis engagement session. We knew it would be full of fun and laughs, and we were not disappointed! I have never made a secret of my favoritism for laughing photos. Ashley and David filled and surpassed my quota! And for every one of these joy-filled photos, Ed and I laughed twice as much.

You'd think a relationship between a doctor and a lawyer would bring a lot of stress, formality, or meticulousness into life, or maybe even all three! But Claire and Andrew are the exact opposite. Though she is a doctor and he is a lawyer, they are more casual than reserved, relaxed instead of stiff, and easygoing rather than demanding. They are professional when they need to be, but they also know when to leave the stress behind and have a great time! Their University Club wedding brought out the best in them both, and they smiled and laughed their way through a beautiful, perfect day that mirrored their relationship.

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!

Candis and Keith have waited a long time for this day. And so have their boys. More than anything, this wedding day was about celebrating family, and there's nothing I love more than a family-centered wedding! Candis and Keith's children may be young, but they knew exactly how important this day was. An especially moving song during the ceremony made these two little boys melt into tears. They didn't care who saw them. Overwhelmed with emotion, they wiped at their eyes. Then they wrapped each other and their parents in a long hug, on the altar, finally a family. That is what this entire day was about!

Rachel knew what she wanted for her wedding, but more importantly, she knew what she didn't want. The thing I love most about her is that she is not afraid to be herself. She knows her limits, and she doesn't push them. Her style oozes out of her, and she OWNS it! She has the right mix of art appreciation and love of color, but she knows when enough is enough. She found her perfect match in Justin, who gracefully lets her be herself, but also pulls her in and holds her close when she needs more than just herself. Their wedding day was the exquisite culmination of their relationship, and it reflected their personalities, both separately and together.

Today's colorful Brooks Museum wedding is such a special one! Lana and Darren are such kind-hearted souls with the sweetest love story. Lana is a designer, and loves art in all its shapes and forms. She brought that vibe to her wedding day with bright pops of color and style (just wait till you see her dress)! Art is such a big part of her life that she and Darren decided to have their reception in an art museum! Even though every detail of their wedding was gorgeous, my favorite part of their day was something small that came from the heart. Keep scrolling to find out what it was...

When we first starting planning their river engagement session with Claire and Andrew, they told us that they both felt pretty awkward taking photos. You've probably heard me say this before, but I love hearing this! Most of our couples are not professional models. They find it at least a little uncomfortable to be photographed (I sure do!). Most people don't know how to find the best light or the best angles. This is where I get to really stretch my professional muscles and lead them through the process. My very favorite thing is hearing that someone had a great time having their photo taken, even if they were nervous at first! By the end of their session, Claire and Andrew were pros, and we had so much fun with them!

We are so excited to share this Ballet Memphis wedding with you guys today! We have decided that ALL wedding receptions should be held in a dance studio. The sprung floors are literally made for dancing! This dance mom approves 110%. It felt fabulous on the feet all night long, and it looked gorgeous to boot! Ballet Memphis, like every great dancer, dressed up and performed beyond all expectations!

Alexa is a dream bride come true! She's gorgeous on the outside, but so kind and genuine on the inside. She cares for others before she cares for herself. She holds memories, traditions, and keepsakes dear, and she knows how important the little things are. Style is no stranger to her, and she is not afraid to be herself. And she owns every bit of it! Eight beautiful ladies (and one adorable little one!) stood beside her on her wedding day, because that's how many people consider her a best friend. Not just a friend. A stand-by-your-side-on-your-wedding-day friend.
