I feel like I start ALL of my blogposts the same. To be completely honest, I kind of do.

WHY you might ask? Because we legit have the coolest, most amazing couples on the planet. I truly believe that. Ashley and Peyton are NO exclusion to that badge of honor. They are the very coolest.

Ashley contacted me back when we were still living in San Francisco. John and I are SO dang glad she did, because we think she and Peyton are one powerhouse of a couple.

Let me get some things off of my chest: At first glance, I was like, WOAH IS THIS CHICK FOR REAL….what? I mean, let’s outline reasons why:

1.  Her HAIR (which is par for the course considering Ashely is a hairstylist!)

2. Her freaking eyebrows. WHAT THE WHAT?! Seriously though, they are blog mention worthy.

3. Her goddess-like skin: You can’t pay for skin like Ashleys.

4. Her style: So classy, so chic. This girl IS all that AND a bag of chips.

And don’t think for ONE second that I don’t have equal compliments for Peyton. Who ELSE do you know that can ROCK a pair of fitted jeans like Peyton can? Name one person that can and I’ll give you $5. He was so willing to do WHAT.EVER. to make Ashley happy. They really are amazing people.

Ashley had her makeup done by her talented cousin, Katy Tucker, and she did a phenomenal job!

Ashley and Peyton have been together “forever” according to Ashley and they are FINALLY tying the knot at the gorgeous Heartwood Hall THIS September. Ashley will be turning heads with her gown from Maggie Louise and we’re already drooling over how stunning she will be.

Ashley and Peyton, thanks so much for letting us hang out with you during such a special time in your lives. We adore you both!

Remember Amanda and Hunter?

We loved their colorful engagement session and getting to meet their precious pup, Blu (who made a special appearance in this blog as well!)

Amanda and Hunter got married at Cedar Hall last May (yeah, a year ago…what?!) A little rain decided to show up, but Amanda did not let that interfere with her charming disposition. It finally stopped raining and we were able to take advantage of all of the gorgeous areas Cedar Hall has to offer. If you’re wondering why Amanda’s makeup is absolutely flawless, you better BET it’s because the queen Kasey Acuff worked her magic.

We swooned over how creative Amanda is. Her taste is absolutely impeccable. Even the smallest detail was throughly thought out, her hair, wedding invitations, wedding favors, and even the unique color smoke that Amanda and Hunter’s sparklers gave off at their exit. I’m telling you, it was all so well put together.

Amanda and Hunter’s bridal party wore pastel pink paired with classic grey and their florals included succulents and garden roses which really made a statement!

Amanda and Hunter, thank you so much for allowing us to spend the entire day with you! We hope you enjoy re-living your special day!

downtown-memphis-engagement-session

This particular blog is bursting at the seams with two of the sweetest people you EVER did meet.

Memphis + beyond- meet Makenzie and Tyler. Both of these cuties were in a wedding I did a few years back, and they both were beyond helpful. John and I actually went to high school with Tyler, but we were a grade older so we didn’t really get to hang out or anything. He was Mr. Athlete though, so we did know that much.

When Makenzie (who you’ll want to be BFF’s with after this post) reached out to me, John and I instantly crossed our fingers and toes that they would hire us to be their wedding photographers. When they came over to our house to meet with us, Makenzie told us she was from Normal, Illinois. We had never even heard of that city, but knew it HAD to be just as charming as she is.

These cuties met in college where they BOTH had athletic scholarships. YES, beauty AND brains. It only made complete sense that we start their engagement session where their story began, Rhodes College. If you haven’t ever visited Rhodes, I highly suggest that you take a tour, because you’ll love everything around you. I secretly call Rhodes “Hogwarts.” It seems just as magical.

After soaking up all of Rhodes’ beauty, we headed downtown, where our past groom, Corey, met us with Tyler and Makenzie’s adorable pup, Cora. I’ve taken MANY engagement photos as well as wedding day photos that included sweet pups, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a dog cooperate so well. Cora is the sweetest, happiest little princess there is.

We’re SO dang excited that Makenzie and Tyler are getting married THIS July at the beautiful Spring Creek Ranch.

Makenzie + Tyler, we are SO excited for your special day, and are so happy you’ve allowed us to be a part!

(Also, want to look as flawless as Makenzie for your engagements? Then hire the queen, Kasey Acuff!

New-orleans-second-line-wedding

I can so very easily say, this wedding is “the” wedding that ALL photographers hope to one day have in their portfolio.

Remember Allison + Wesley? I gushed over them here:  (Be sure to read it because they have the sweetest story.)

We were lucky enough they allowed us to tag along to shoot their New Orleans wedding. Their wedding was actually over a year ago but as much as we shoot, editing seems to take over all free time so here I sit, blogging this gorgeous wedding (that was featured on Rock N’ Roll Bride) over a year later.

One of my all time favorite quotes is this one by Tennessee Williams:

“America has only three cities: New York, San Francisco, and New Orleans.
Everywhere else is Cleveland.”

New Orleans really does have some serious magic to it. Very recently, Allison and Wesley followed their dreams to move there, and I’ve been their #1 snapchat fan ever since.

Wesley and Allison made the smart decision to see each other before the ceremony which provided them with ample opportunities to take advantage of the French Quarter for photos. Allison really wanted photos near an ivy wall, and John and I were lucky enough to find one not far away from their venue, which was an adorable Bed and Breakfast. These two invited only their closest friends and family and tied the knot in such an intimate way. Allison’s grandma gave a speech, and nearly everyone cried.

Let’s talk about one thing, pretty much the highlight of my career thus far. TWO WORDS. SECOND.LINE.

In case you also have been buried under a rock for your entire life (like me) a second line is defined by Wikipedia as: “Second line is a tradition in brass band parades in New Orleans, Louisiana. The “main line” or “first line” is the main section of the parade, or the members of the actual club with the parading permit as well as the brass band.”

I think I was grinning from ear to ear throughout the entire walk. It was high energy, crowds were yelling congrats, throwing beads, and celebrating with Allison and Wesley.

These love birds had their wedding reception at Vacherie, which was both lovely and served amazing, traditional New Orleans style food.

Enough talky, more walky.

Allison and Wesley, thank you for giving us the opportunity of a lifetime. We hope you enjoy re-living your wedding day!

These two cuties made even a cloudy, cold March day tolerable.

Friends, meet Shelley and Justin. First impressions: HER.HAIR. Oh my goodness. I probably played with aka- “fixed it” 20 times during their session. It was super windy, but I think subconsciously, I was just secretly wishing it was my hair.

Shelley reached out to us when John and I were still living in San Francisco. We were super excited that she showed interest in our work, and super flattered when her date was negotiable around our availability. Way to pull on our heartstrings, S+J.

Along with having been together for basically forever, we also have another giant factor in common with these love birds. MUST.LOVE.DOGS. Shelley and Justin have two fur children that basically rule their lives. I feel like every single one of our couples are “dog people.” Those are the best kind of people: loyal, interesting, smart, and hilarious.

Shelley wore the cutest black fitted dress to the session, and since it was freaking FREEZING outside, she decided to WHIP out this gorgeous West Elm blanket, and wear it as a shaw. She slayed the HECK out of it, and I love the texture it added to these photos. These guys drove from Nashville for their engagement session and then turned around and went home and had to go to work the  very next day. Talk about troopers!

These cuties are getting married this JUNE and John and I are absolutely THRILLED to be there to capture those memories!

You guys enjoy!
