What can I say about this incredible couple that I didn’t already mention HERE?

Even though Kendall and William’s wedding was last July, we feel like it just happened. Kendall started off as a sweet girl who inquired with me, and now I will forever call her a friend. She’s one of those girls you can just always count on. It’s no secret why both Kendall and William had about 1,000 wedding guests. They are SOOOOO very loved.

These love birds got ready downtown at The Peabody Hotel, and then got married at Immaculate Conception. They had their reception at The Cadre downtown so their wedding guests were able to get a good dose of good ole Memphis. It was so fitting for their classy, timeless personalities. Naturally, July in Memphis is HOTTTTT, that is a given. I won’t lie, this July afternoon was exceptionally hot, and Kendall and William handled it like the champions they are. Kendall got unbearably nervous just seconds before her first look with William, but as soon as he turned around and hugged her, her nerves subsided. These two are absolutely perfect for each other.

We were able to get all of the formal portraits done before the ceremony, so Kendall and William were able to dash off to their reception. When we arrived at their reception, our photographer hearts fluttered. The flowers and decor provided by Garden District and Mona Dunlap were swoon worthy! The delicious food was served by CFY Catering and of course, it was the talk of the evening!

Kendall’s makeup was done by Queen Kasey Acuff herself and Kendall’s long blonde locks were done by Elaine Clayton from Salon 387. Kendall turned every single guest’s head in her stunning Maggie Louise gown. It was romantic, classic, and so Kendall.

Kendall and William, THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to capture these sweet moments! We love you dearly!

I could go on for years about how precious sweet Katie and Justin are. I mean, I really could.

The story of how we were connected with J+K is pretty spectacular and truly shows God’s hand at work. Katie and Justin actually live HERE in Memphis. We didn’t know each other what so ever before she inquired with me about her Sonoma, California wedding. You heard that correctly.

While John and I were living in San Francisco, we got an email from the sweetest little Katie we ever did meet. She informed us she actually lived in Memphis, but was getting married at St. Francis Winery + Vineyards in Sonoma, California. John and I both read her email and thought “This has just got to be too good to be true.” BUT, as fate would have it, it WASN’T. After many emails, Katie + Justin booked with us. We rented a car (since it’s basically impossible to have one in San Francisco, unless you’re a CEO or Taylor Swift herself) and drove ourselves to her stunning venue. We saw sights we probably would have never seen if not for J+K.

Katie brought her Maggie Louise gown ALLLLLLL the way from Memphis, and she absolutely rocked it. We were not prepared for the breathtaking views that St. Francis Winery had in store for us. It lightly misted all day but the fog rolled in and made for some of the most etherial photos we’ve ever taken. J+K tied the knot in front of just their family and I can’t imagine them doing it any other way. It was so sentimental, so private, and so meaningful. We felt proud to be a small part of their special day.

Since their wedding last March, we’ve run into these sweet babes a few times. They’re the kind of people you just want to hug tight, aka, the best kind of people.

J+K we hope you enjoy reliving these images as much as we did!

Not only are Tiffany and Patrick absolutely adorable, they are also ridiculously lucky.

“Why” you ask? They were able to take complete advantage of The Dixon’s tulips in ALL of their glory. No seriously, I shot there 3-4 weeks later, and they were still kicking, just not nearly as bright and bold as they were during this engagement session. Tiffany and Patrick had originally scheduled their engagement session months before this. School and work schedules got in their way and led them to reschedule, but boy OH boy are we glad they did. This engagement session is by far one of our very favorites to date for obvious reasons.

We actually had never met Tiffany and Patrick until their engagement session. They both introduced themselves, and John and I hugged them both (as we always do.) It only took me about five minutes to accidentally call Patrick “Pat” as if I had known him for 20+ years. I guess Patrick has that effect on people! Luckily Tiffany and Patrick both laughed it off and I told them they could call me whatever they wanted for the rest of the day.

Because of Tiffany, Patrick is much better at sharing french fries now and isn’t that really what love is all about? (hehehe!)

These cute kids are getting married THIS month at The Dixon, and we simply cannot wait to celebrate with them! We’re so thrilled to also be working alongside VMWeddings, Kasey Acuff, Emily McElhaney, and Ashley Oldham of 117 Event Design. Clearly Tiffany and Jackson have great taste!

You guys enjoy!

Meet Sarah and Beck, everyone!

These cuties are getting married next month on Earth Day, and John and I are thrilled to be a part of this sweet time in their lives.

When Sarah inquired with us initially she made us blush all day. She was full of compliments, knew a handful of friends whose weddings we had shot, and was beyond ecstatic to be getting married. We’ve got along from the get-go! When we set up a meeting, Sarah brought her dad along. We rarely ever get to be involved with FOB’s, but we were thrilled he got to tag along. He was as kind and polite as Sarah (and who doesn’t just love a super involved daddy?!)

Sarah and Beck had their first date at Hog and Hominy here in Memphis (and now I want pizza.) Ever since their first date these two have been inseparable. These guys absolutely love to adventure together, and probably have a suitcase ready to go at all times. Beck (who I’m convinced looks like Chris Martin) actually proposed to Sarah on their trip out west last year. When the newly engaged couple returned back to Memphis they didn’t get home until almost 1 am. To their surprise, they were greeted with balloons galore sprinkled throughout their house and a giant congralutory sign! Sarah and Beck are very loved.

We’re THRILLED to be capturing Sarah and Beck’s day in April, but for now you’ll have to enjoy these sweet images from their engagement session! Sarah was convinced she would be awkward in photos, but this cute couple, along with some warm sunshine, Sarah and Beck both looked like Kings and Queens!

You guys enjoy!
