John and I are SO very happy to FINALLY be able to share these beauties!

Meet Ellie, you’re going to be seeing  A LOT of her. Let me start from the beginning.

Karlee, our sweet new friend from Propcellar reached out to us about doing a styled shoot to show off some of her AMAZING props, and funky cool new location! We were absolutely THRILLED that she asked us, and quickly began our hunt for the perfect model.

We didn’t have to look very long, because the perfect model was Ellie. Ellie is actually one of our October brides, and I knew her strawberry blonde hair, and bright crystal eyes (those have not been edited, y’all) would be perfect for this styled shoot.

There was ONE thing I knew that would really add some rustic flare to such an industrial urban atmosphere, a flower crown. So guess who I reached out to?

Lynn Doyle Flowers. If you want a flower crown done right for your wedding/engagement photos, or for any reason, be sure to give them a call!

If you haven’t ever heard of Propcellar, go ahead and climb out from what ever rock you’ve been hiding under, and go check them out, NOW! I was absolutely floored (in the best way possible) when I saw her inventory. Karlee only invests in the BEST vintage frills there are, and does an amazing job of keeping them in pristine condition. She has vintage couches galore, church pews of all colors and sizes, arbors, wooden doors, iron gates, I literally could write a novel. I only wish John and I would have known about Karlee when we got married. Wouldn’t Propcellar’s new location be one seriously amazing wedding venue? Memphis needs more industrial venues!

Brides, if you want your wedding to mirror the unique individuals you are, then give Karlee a call. She is so helpful, positive, and willing to do what ever she can to ensure your complete satisfaction.

Thank you Karlee, Lynn Doyle Flowers, and gorgeous Ellie for such a fun collaboration! You guys are some of Memphis’ best vendors!

Enjoy!

John and I are so excited to introduce our first 2015 couple, Laura and Nathan! (And by first I mean their wedding is literally on January 2nd, 2015!)

I could tell Laura was extremely lively and enthusiastic via email, and simply could NOT wait to meet her in person. When we were finally able to meet up, in only took a few short minutes for me to LOVE her. Laura came and met John and I with her precious momma. The four of us sat and chatted for what felt like hours. They were just so extremely easy to talk to. It honestly felt like we were catching up with old friends.

Laura is the type of girl who has never met a stranger. She has a calming way about her, which makes you feel like you’ve known her forever. She’s upbeat, positive, gleaming, and absolutely charming (I bet she gets such great traits from her momma!)

When Laura emailed John and I asking US to be her photographers, there may or may not have been a happy dance/high fives from J&K. We can’t help ourselves. One of our 2015 goals was “Only work with couples that are on fire for life.” Laura (and what we had heard of Nathan) totally fit that goal that now sits at the bottom of an aqua mason jar.

Laura and Nathan are saying ” I do.” at the historic Heartwood Hall. Laura wanted a little splash of variety in their engagement photos, so we decided to head down to Rhodes College (which if you ask me has a Hogwarts feel to it,) and then to Cedar Hall, Heartwood’s sister.

If I had to describe this engagement session in one word it would be, radiant.

The colors, the smiles, the light, the luscious green backdrop, and of course a pretty dang good looking couple on top of it all!

Laura and Nathan, we simply CANNOT wait for this coming January!

Enjoy these!

I absolutely loved that this was the ONE prop Laura and Nathan wanted to incorporate. They love words as much as I do.

Meet Ainsley and Brad, two of the most naturally happy people we know.

From our first initial emails/phone calls, I knew Ainsley and I were one of the same. Her voice is animated, she’s polite, respectful, grateful, and clearly a doll. When we first met up, Ainsley and Brad chose Green Cork, a midtown wine garden, and we KNEW then we wanted to marry them both. (Couple Crush) And as if we could possibly love them any more than we already did, they told us they have a golden doodle. SOLD.

When Ainsley waltzed over to us in her form fitting red dress at their engagement session, I questioned whether or not we were the same person. Then after a few minutes of shooting I said “Are you a middle child?” Ainsley looked at me all quizzically and said “yes?” As a middle child, I can usually tell if someone else is also a middle child, and I nailed it this time! All the more reason why we LOVE Ainsley.

Brad’s day job is making Ainsley laugh. Ok, so that isn’t exactly his job title, but he could definitely be a professional at it. Ainsley giggled her way through this entire session.

When these love birds aren’t skipping merrily, hand in hand giggling, you can find them on a walk or at the park with their adorable dog CAMP (who you will see pictured below.)

A lot of exciting things are happening for Ainsley and Brad right now including, an engagement, planning a wedding, and most recently they bought a house together. We are simply thrilled to be a part of their journey!

You guys enjoy these!

Meet Kelsey.

I’ve known Kelsey for about four years now. As a freshman in college, she made the senior girl’s nervous. I totally get it. She’s a babe, and people throw rocks at things that shine. She’s strong, brave, fearless, passionate, kind, and literally glows.

The world needs more Kelseys.

I reached out to her to model for me after reading one of my favorite photographer’s blogs. He made his own backdrop out of an artist canvas he painted. He mentioned craving something uninvolved and simple after a busy year of glorious chaos. I honestly understand the feeling. Weddings are my absolute favorite, really. I love the details, I love seeing my couple’s personalities shine through their wedding day visions, but I too wanted to bring it back to the basics. Kelsey was the perfect model.

Thanks so much, Kelsey, for always being willing to help us out.

Enjoy.
