Two of everyone’s favorites finally tied the knot. Remember Samantha and Devon’s urban engagement session? It still goes down as one of our very favorite engagement sessions we’ve ever done. As I mentioned in the last post about Samantha and Devon, these two have chemistry like you would not believe. They brought that same amazing chemistry along with them on their wedding day, and it’s completely obvious these two are soulmates.

Sam and Devon got married at Acre, a gorgeous restaurant here in Memphis, Tennessee. It was the most perfect location for Samantha and Devon’s intimate family with just their closest family and friends. It’s both modern and rustic, which makes for an amazing backdrop. Samantha and Devon’s wedding mirrored the intentional people they are. From the form fitting gown, to the classy, black bridesmaid’s dresses, to the timeless florals (compliments of Lynn Doyle Flowers) to the entirely authentic reactions, it’s no surprise this wedding is ALSO one of our very favorites!

The weather was questionable throughout the entire day, but it held out long enough for all of the formal portraits and the ceremony. Acre is absolutely stunning in all seasons of the year, with or without sun.

Both Samantha and Devon have always been beyond supportive of John and I. They are both so extremely creative (whether they’ll admit it or not) and they light up the room when they walk in. They are so quick to compliment good work, and they put their heart and souls into all that they do. Recently, we noticed a sweet status Samantha posted about Devon (one of many.) Both of these sweet souls are always saying how grateful they are for one another. John and I feel thankful to have one of our couples whose marriage we look up to.

Sam and Devon, we wish only good things for you guys, always. You are one powerhouse couple, and we feel thankful to call you guys our friends!

Enjoy!

You HAVE to remember Katie and Brian’s engagement session.

I mentioned how creative both Katie and Brian are and how everything they touch turns to pure gold, well, their wedding was nothing short of a fairytale. A wedding photographer’s DREAM.

Katie wore a PINK, yes, you read that right, a PINK BHLDN gown that I want to wear every single day of my life: To the grocery store, to clean the house, walk the dog, go shopping, exercising, chickfila, concerts, you get it. It’s THE dreamiest. Katie has the best taste (which I’ll probably say 1,000 more times in this post) and all of her details were completely swoon worthy, not to mention her celtic knot styled wedding hair, compliments of the hair queen Emily McElhaney.

Katie and Brian got married on her aunt’s property. It was one of the sweetest, most intimate weddings. They had a beautiful sit-down dinner, where they shared a family style meal with their closest friends and family. Katie and Brian had initially planned on being married outside, but because of unpredictable weather, they moved it under their reception tent. Katie designed the most gorgeous dessert table with giant ombre glitter letters that spelled out “SWEET.” It was the perfect and most delicious alter and I’m sure all of Katie and Brian’s guests would agree.

As I mentioned in Katie and Brian’s engagement session, when Katie emailed me initially, she mentioned that while she was so excited for a gorgeous wedding, she was more focused on a beautiful marriage. In this crazy, fast paced, materialistic world, it’s so nice to hear that our couples value the quality of their marriage. Katie and Brian are some of our very favorites. We know only amazing things will come their way.

Katie and Bryan, thanks for letting the Ginns capture your engagement and wedding images. You two enjoy reliving these sweet moments!

I know you remember these cuties.

Wesley and Eli (who I gushed over in their engagement session post) were married this past March at Union Avenue Baptist Church. Their stunning reception was at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens.

All of Wesley and Eli’s details were completely well thought out. Everything went so well together. The gold hand lettering on their wedding invitation set, the cream Kate Spade heels, and Wesley’s Rivini gown she got here locally at Maggie Lousie tied in so well together. Eli’s classic fitted black tux was such a timeless look that will never go out of style.

We got to work alongside some amazing vendors (just to name a few) such as WED Memphis who kept everything so orderly, VMWeddings Studio who provided Wesley and Eli with some of the most amazing cinematography we’ve ever laid eyes on, the makeup queen herself-Kasey Acuff, and Deedra Stone Designs who swooned everyone with the plethora of florals she and her team provided.

Wesley and Eli decided on not seeing each other before the ceremony, however, they planned accordingly and had tons of time to “play” in the Tulips at the Dixon after their ceremony. Their reception was extremely detailed, complete with an ice cream and coffee bar. Restaurant Iris satisfied every single one of Wesley and Eli’s guests, as usual.

Both Wesley and Eli’s family and bridal party were so fun to be around. They were all so kind, and so welcoming to our direction throughout the day.

Wesley and Eli, it’s obvious we adore you both to pieces! THANK you, for allowing us to capture your very best day. We’re so happy to call you both friends now.

Enjoy!

This engagement session is one of our all time favorites. Meet Elizabeth and Brandon, yes, ‘IRL’ they are THIS adorable. It’s true.

Elizabeth is also a photographer! You can see some of her talented work here. Funny story, Elizabeth and I have “known” each other for years, but never met ‘IRL’ until this very day, a few weeks ago. Social media is the best sometimes, isn’t it?

Elizabeth and Brandon have been together for almost 2 years, but have known each other since they were just kids. Elizabeth’s cousin was the same age as Brandon, they were friends and hung out often. Elizabeth said she was straight crushing on him for as long as she can remember.  One day, with the encouragement of her cousin, Elizabeth decided to message Brandon just to see if he wanted to catch up. BOOM, the rest is history. Elizabeth KNOWS what she wants. I know Brandon is SO happy he got that message. He now gets to wear this pretty lady on his arm for LIFE.

Brandon actually proposed to Elizabeth in ITALY. So yeah, he basically takes the cake for most romantic proposal EVER.

The four of us got to explore South Main for Elizabeth and Brandon’s engagement session. These two laughed the entire time, which is probably why we love these images so much. They weren’t forced, it was natural, just like their love for one another. We ended this session on the rooftop of their condo that overlooks the river and the Memphis skyline.

These cuties are getting married next April at Belle Meade Plantation in Nashville, Tennessee. They also have the greatest wedding hashtag of all time. Elizabeth’s last name is Looney and Brandon’s last name is Scott. Their hashtag is #Looney4Scott

Elizabeth and Brandon are the real deal. They are the definition of soulmates, and we know they will laugh their entire way through marriage.

Elizabeth and Brandon, thank you for asking us to document this sweet season of life for you both! Enjoy!

engagement-session-with-a-dog

We’ve been excited about this blog post since the second we heard from Liz.

A bit of a back story. Before Liz got engaged, she was kind enough to purchase some of my Etsy artwork. More than once. I remembered seeing her name in my inbox before she inquired about potentially shooting her wedding. Imagine our excitement when she told us she was engaged and wanted to hire US despite the fact we lived in San Francisco. We’re so glad she did.

Fast forward to this June,  we were finally able to meet both Liz, Clint, and TUCKER! I’ll be honest, he stole the show a bit. Rightfully so, just look at that face.

Liz and Clint are the poster children for “What to wear to your engagement session.” They looked absolutely adorable. They had one casual-ish outfit, and one dressy outfit. Also, I’m sure by the end of this post you’ll be wondering who did Liz’ amazing makeup, no need to ask, because you probably already know, Queen Kasey Acuff, that’s who. Liz and Clint were so worried they would be awkward in front of the camera, but they really REALLY weren’t. They are both so natural together, their love and connection is easy. Liz is the girl next door and Clint is everyone’s best friend.

I asked them how they met, and I loved their story:

The first time these two ever met in person, was in the fall at a Mexican restaurant. (I knew we loved them, haha!) Liz was with a friend about to head to a concert, and Clint happened to be with friends at the same restaurant. Somehow Liz’s friends knew Clint’s friends, so they all sat down together. Fast forward to Spring, Liz and Clint started hanging out. Then Clint had to move to Tupelo, Mississippi for a job. A year later, he moved back to Memphis. I have a feeling sweet Liz had something to do with that relocation. I’m glad she did because Clint proposed on Christmas in front of all of Liz’s family.

The rest is history.

Liz and Clint are getting married THIS August. We’re SO excited that they asked us to capture their day for them.

Until then, enjoy these sweet images!
