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!

We are so excited to share this gorgeous Memphis Columns wedding with you today! This was the last of our 2017 weddings, and it was one for the books! If I could clone this wedding and shoot it over and over, I would in a heartbeat. Everything about it was perfect. There were happy tears, lots of hugs, and TONS of laughing (and the sweetest daddy daughter First Look)! Every detail was beautiful. Best of all, Morgan and Jeremy have hearts of gold, and we are so proud to call them friends. This wedding was definitely the grand finale of our year!

We have such a fun urban engagement session to share today! We didn't get the chance to meet Derek before getting him in front of our camera, but we weren't worried a bit. Jennifer had already told us that they were both extremely photogenic, and she wasn't kidding! These two thrive in front of the camera, and it was such a treat to photograph them. As you will see, they both have the perfect amount of sass, romance, and style!

Of all the different kinds of weddings we shoot, the ones at private residences are always a favorite! It's one sure way to have a wedding like no one else's. Marisa and Paul are a couple like no one else, and they would have had a unique wedding no matter where it took place, but their venue choice only added to their originality! They celebrated their love at Paul's grandfather's gorgeous farm in Mississippi. It was the perfect place for their union, and offered them the opportunity to really showcase who they are as a couple. We absolutely love them both, and unsurprisingly, we loved every detail of their wedding. We are so thrilled to share it with you today!

There's always a point in the wedding day when I know for sure that a couple is meant to be together. It may be something special the officiant says during the ceremony, a telling story during toasts, or even a quiet giggle or look that the couple shares when they think they're alone. Laura and Chad's day was full of little moments like these, but the one that really stuck with me happened when Laura was opening her gift from Chad. She pulled out a gorgeous necklace that he had chosen for her, and with glistening eyes, said, "he knows my style even better than I do!" It was a little thing, perhaps, but that simple gift said, without words, how much he knows and understands her.

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!

We had been looking forward to this wedding for a long time! Ever since we photographed their surprise proposal in Memphis, we were so excited for the moment when these two would officially seal the deal. We knew they both had style, but even we were unprepared for the amount of awesomeness that filled this day. We traveled to a little town in Georgia, where we were thrilled to discover one of the most beautiful wedding venues ever! Tryphena's Garden is like a little Italian villa, Georgia style, filled with gorgeous plantings, hidden paths, and formal lawns. It is the perfect place for a wedding, and a photographer's dream!

Our 2017 wedding season has officially begun! We kicked off the year with an amazing couple. Sabrina and Gary are a classic duo, with style all in the right places (wait until you see her shoes!). My favorite thing about them is their romance. Gary can't go 5 minutes without kissing her, and Sabrina has a shy smile that she saves for only him. I think you'll notice as you scroll through these photos how easily they are themselves in front of the camera, and I love that!

We are officially done with weddings for 2016! We will still be busy the next few months with lots happening behind the scenes and time spent on re-energizing for next year, but we are tickled pink to end this year's wedding season with a bang! We have been on pins and needles for this wedding, this celebration, this couple, ever since their Nashville engagement session! And once you see our recap of their day, we know you'll understand why!

Weddings usually tend to be all about the bride. Gorgeous gown, fabulous florals, beautiful bridesmaids (see what I did there?). We all know this, and most grooms are perfectly comfortable with it. However, you can't have a wedding without the groom! Though he may be completely willing to give up the decision making process, he should be encouraged to take part in some of the choices for the day. The groom's cake is a perfect way to get your groom involved in the wedding - it's all about him! Seeing as how today is May 4th, I thought this post was particularly appropriate for today! Read on to see some groom's cake inspiration... and May the 4th be with you!
