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.

Carmen and Grantley are not afraid to celebrate the way they know best! They wanted a small but short ceremony on the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River. Time to enjoy their closest friends and family present was a priority. They wanted to attend their own cocktail hour. Photos were a priority (love that!), and they wanted plenty of time for them. And most of all, they wanted to be married!

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!

She was almost embarassed to tell me that their spirit celebrity couple is George and Amal, but honestly, I think THEY should be the celebrities! It may have been hot outside for their bright and bold engagement session, but they were the ones who brought the heat... and the heart! We love these two so much and can't wait for them to become a family of 4 in September!

I'm on a mission. I'm on a mission to teach young ladies all about self love. That every girl is beautiful, no matter their size, shape, color, or age. That you only get this one body in this one life. To make it the best it can be, and to treat it with the respect it deserves. That self love doesn't only mean appreciating your own body, your own face, your own feelings, but caring for those of your peers as well. I'm on a mission to not only make young ladies look natural and beautiful, but to feel beautiful!

Lindsay and Buck may not yet be married, but they've already got quite the family! We absolutely love it when couples want to include their fur babies in their photo session. Petunia, Percy, and Ty completely stole our hearts and added the perfect amount of energy to our summer garden engagement session. Keep scrolling to see their happy puppy antics!

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.

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!
