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.

Missy and Will have an uncanny way of actually slowing down time. Long, languid, enjoyable time! These two got plenty of it to relax and just BE in the moment. The entire day was smooth and chill, despite the summer heat. I'm still trying to figure out how we got so much time to get all the photos we needed, plus time to just enjoy their Memphis Botanic Garden wedding. That never happens! All I can come up with is that Missy and Will are magicians. Special, beautiful, bride and groom magicians. Yup.

Oh, you guys! We have such a treat for you today! I am in love with this engagement session for so many reasons:
  1. Hannah and AJ are the sweetest couple! We loved getting to know them better.
  2. We shot Hannah's mom's wedding nearly seven years ago, and we are thrilled to get to see everyone again for another wedding!
  3. We were so lucky to be able to use Orion Hill for this shoot. The property will be open for weddings next year, but we got to be the first photographers to photograph a couple on the grounds!
  4. Hannah and AJ are total BABES, and a photographers' dream!

It's officially Fall now, so I'm going to pretend that we photographed this Memphis river engagement session while the temperatures were blissfully cool and fresh fallen leaves crunched underfoot. But that is not reality. Reality is that, while it was almost Fall, the temperatures were still uncomfortably hot. Reality is that Alicia and Charles both donned jackets for the sake of the photos, but they quickly removed them after the shutter stopped clicking. Reality is that the leaves on the trees are still stubbornly green and remain fixed to their branches.

If you follow me on social media, I apologize in advance. I'm going to be posting a ton of images from this Memphis Country Club wedding! It was so beautiful and full of amazing details. The bride and groom are totally model status, and the reception was a party to remember! But most of all, Bailey and Will create love wherever they go. Love for each other, love for their families, love for their friends (they had the biggest wedding party we've ever had!), and even love for people they don't even know that well. They are such loving souls and their day was a complete reflection of them! Keep scrolling to see some of our favorite moments from this incredible day!

When Anahi and Eduardo told us that they were having a traditional Mexican wedding, I was excited to break out my (very) limited Spanish vocabulary. What I wasn't prepared for was the amazingness that awaited us when the day arrived! Yes, there was lots of Spanish. But there were also aerialists, carnival dancers, stilt walkers, cotton candy, a Conga line, and an Hora Loca! The ceremony had sweet traditions we'd never seen too, including a floral lasso and the giving of coins. The day's music was provided by a very talented Mariachi band that had us wanting to dance all day long! At the end of the day, I was convinced that this was the most fun wedding ever!

This special couple has a talent that we discovered on their wedding day. One that is rare and hard to find. They can wrap themselves in their own little bubble and tune out the whole world, even while the whole world is watching them. While they are in their bubble, they are the only two people who matter. The “I love you’s” and meaningful glances that passed between them meant even more, because they were the only ones in the bubble. Their whole beautiful, elegant, Persain wedding was a culmination of that bubble, only brought to life for everyone to see!

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 have such a special love story to share with you today! One of our favorite things to shoot is a courthouse wedding. Elopements are all about marriage! It's a way for two people to say they want to be together forever, but they don't need a big event to celebrate their love. When they ask us to be there with them, it's the highest honor! Having us there means that these memories are priceless to them, and they want each moment documented in the most beautiful way possible. We think courthouse weddings are so romantic, and Celia and Jeff's wedding day was no exception!
