sweet intimate engagement photos

These adorable kids are getting married THIS weekend.

(And I am EXTREMELY behind on blogging.)

Ellie may look familiar, because this is the second time she’s been featured on the blog. Not only is Ellie absolutely stunning, she’s also FULL of whit and charm. Nathan is honestly her other half and we love the way they are together. We actually met Ellie through one of our favorite florist, Michael Doyle of Lynn Doyle Flowers. She told me that she had inquired about an April wedding date, and I was already booked. I later got another email from Ellie explaining their date had changed. I was ecstatic when I realized WE were going to get to be the lucky souls that had the honor of documenting such a special time for both Ellie and Nathan.

Since our initial meeting, Ellie and I have become great buds. We often get to see each other in passing at weddings, and have similar opinions on most things. It’s super nice to have someone who dislikes the same things as you. Hahahaha!

These two lovebirds are comfortable in their own skin, and that is a rarity these days. One quote that comes to mind when I think about Ellie and Nathan is from the movie, We Bought a Zoo. “I’m a big fan of people being exactly who they are.” 110% Ellie and Nathan.

Ellie and Nathan also share a love for dogs (let’s be honest, I don’t trust people who don’t love dogs.) They brought Brinkley, their sweet pup, along to the session. He’s a Nova Scotia Duck Trolling Retriever. He pretty much stole the show, understandably so.

I digress.

Ellie and Nathan, we can’t WAIT for this weekend!

Enjoy!

The first time I met Marcie, I honestly wondered if she was the most beautiful person I’d ever seen in my life.

I mean, she has SPARKLING eyes, (and I am pretty confident one of them is two different colors, it’s absolutely mesmerizing) seriously amazing hair, and those eyebrows…… come ON!

She and Zach were an absolute delight to meet with. We were simply thrilled when they hired us for such a special time in their lives.

Marcie informed me that she would be wearing a TULLE skirt for her engagement photos. Have I mentioned tulle is my middle name?!?! Not to mention, a tulle skirt in an urban location = perfection.

We were lucky enough to have a delicious golden lit afternoon for this engagement session, and Marcie and Zach totally rocked it. They are absolutely adorable together. Marcie is a giggler, and Zach is her muse. This amazing couple has been together for nearly a decade. They met in high school, started dating shortly after, and did the whole long distance thing throughout college. Love prevailed because come June, these love birds will say “I do” at one of our favorite venues, Spring Creek Ranch. As we were wandering up and down the midtown alleys, you would have thought Zach, Marcie, John, and I were longtime best friends. We laughed, cracked jokes, talked about wedding plans, etc. We absolutely adore this couple! We can’t wait for June to get here, guys!

Until then, enjoy these!

Urban engagements session. Downtown engagement session. Intimate wedding photos. Emotional raw engagement photos.

One time, I got to do an engagement session for the real life Barbie and Ken. True story. (I mean that as the highest compliment ever.)

World, meet Natalie and Kevin, a rocking powerhouse of a couple.

I could write a novel on all of the reasons you’re going to want to be Natalie’s best friend, and I’m confident it would be a best seller.

From the very initial email, I loved Natalie. I loved how kindly she spoke, and how generous she was with her compliments. When we met up with her in person, I loved that she was brave and confident enough to come by herself (something I don’t think I’ll ever be able to do.) In case you’re wondering, the sweet girl from the emails is even more charming than I could have ever imagined. I didn’t think that was even possible, but it is.

John and I were fortunate enough to meet Kevin in a recent wedding we shot. He and Natalie both were in the bridal party, and we loved the dynamic they added to the mix. They both are so insanely perfect for each other, I love when people just fit together like missing puzzle pieces.

We nailed down amazing weather for Natalie and Kevin’s downtown engagement session. They stepped out of their vehicle with some of the classiest attire we’ve seen. Natalie wore a classic black dress that just added the necessary romance to this session. Kevin made 007 jealous in his classic black and white that made for a classy downtown affair.

We wandered around Main Street and Tom Lee Park, and ended at the Madison’s Rooftop. I absolutely love the crisp golden light that so delicately bounced off of Natalie’s curls. (P.S. I could write a whole other post on why Natalie’s hair is basic perfection.)

Natalie and Kevin, you guys are both so wonderful, and John and I consider ourselves lucky you allowed us to be a part of this special time in your lives. We can’t wait for next May!

Enjoy!

John and I feel so humbled that two creative souls like Sam and Devon chose US to be a part of this joyous time in their lives.

Sam and Devon (who I accidentally called Blake (because’s Sam’s last name is Blake) on IG a while back, still embarrassed) approached us with such eagerness and excitement in their voices.

We knew they had giant welcoming hearts, so we were equally excited to meet with them. We somehow managed to get them to agree to be a part of our KGP 2015 family, and we’re so glad they did!

Sam and Devon are on fire for each other. Their chemistry is absolutely unreal. Some people just fit together, it must have been written long ago. We absolutely loved the attire Sam and Devon chose for their engagement pictures, it suited them so well.

Devon works in the video world. We mentioned once to him how he should seriously consider stepping into the wedding world of videography, with Sam at his side. I mean, seriously, can you even image what good kind of damage these two cuties could do? If you see either of them, bother and nudge them about that until they agree. They are so creative, so motivated, and SO in love, and I don’t care WHAT you say, I believe that you have to believe in love to be able to accurately tell love stories.

Sam is clearly the diamond in the rough. She’s as beautiful as her sweet soul, and I keep referring to her as a “Lana look alike” because I swear she has those same gorgeous doe-eyes as Lana Del Ray. She wears her heart on her sleeve, is passionate about others, and her positive attitude absolutely radiates for all to see.

So yes, they are a dream couple.

Towards the end of their session, Sam and Devon decided to bring their little puggy, Ray along. If you know anything at all about me, you know I’m absolutely obsessed with Pugs, and always have been. I giggled the ENTIRE time we were with him, and then laughed so hard I cried while editing because Ray is the cutest, funniest thing I’ve ever seen. He totally stole the show.

We can’t wait for your wedding next April at Acre Memphis.

You guys enjoy!
