I say it all the time, because it's so true: our favorite thing about our job is that we have new friends when the wedding is over. But with Kristi and Matt, we ended up with new friends before the wedding! We got along so well with them right away. And when they pulled out three bottles of flavored tequila after their engagement session and invited us to stay for cocktails, we sealed our friendship right then and there! Since that day, we have shared more cocktails, and even more laughs. We looked forward to their wedding not only as photographers, but as friends! We're so thrilled to be sharing this one today!

I know I don't need to say (again!) how much we love elopements! Remember this amazingly fun yellow and grew courthouse wedding? Michelle and Terrence are a great couple, and we had such a good time with them! Their courthouse ceremony was short, but oh so sweet! They were such great sports wandering around downtown Memphis with us afterward for their portraits. We got to know them better, shared quite a few laughs, and grabbed some awesome photos!

It's no secret that we love elopements! They're short, sweet, and all about the marriage. It might be your first inclination to think that going through security, then waiting in line, only to sit in a quiet courtroom, might detract from the romance of a wedding day, but you'd be mistaken! All those things only add to the excitement and anticipation. A wedding at the courthouse is just like a wedding anywhere else. There's a real bride, a real groom, a real (and ultra legal!) officiant, and after the real vows, there's a real marriage. Michelle and Terrence decided to simplify their day and focus on their marriage. They had a beautiful wedding day, with all the things that they wanted, but without the things they didn't.

These two lovebirds actually got married this past Saturday! It was a beautiful, perfect day, and we can't wait to share those images. But in the meantime, we're going to share the images from their midtown Memphis fall engagement session! We managed to fit in a little time for Kate and Sean's engagement photos only a couple weeks before the wedding, on a beautiful autumn day. I absolutely love the trees in the fall! Keep reading to see the beautiful yellows and reds we captured, along with this cute couple!

We always know a wedding at the Cannon Center will be a good one, and Angelique and Marcus' day did not disappoint! We were excited for this one ever since their sexy engagement shoot, so we were so ready to get our cameras on them again! The wedding day was a perfect reflection of them. It was nearly entirely white, with only a splash of soft yellow here and there. The ceremony was intimate and classy, with soft sheers draping the entire room, while the reception had a modern sophisticated feel with lots of white leather lounge furniture. And the after party! Yes! After the reception, the entire space was flipped yet again for a nightclub party that lasted all night! We would have expected nothing less from Angelique and Marcus.

I have a confession. I love fall. I feel like such a traitor admitting that out loud (or, rather, on the internet, which is worse). See, summer is my absolute favorite of all seasons, by a long shot. It's warm. There are vacations involved. We get to swim. It's warm. The daylight sticks around longer. Did I mention it's warm? But autumn signals the end of summer, so I should be completely against it!

I'm beyond honored to have Lauren and Chris' beautiful Heartwood Hall wedding featured on Rustic Wedding Chic today! I have been keeping their gorgeous spring wedding under wraps until this feature was published, but I will be sharing the full wedding on my own blog...
