A Day Trip to Joshua Tree National Park | Personal | Pennsylvania and Tennessee Wedding Photographer

If you could go to any National Park, which one would you go to? That’s a tough one for me to answer. LOL. In fact, I’m not sure I could answer it with just one. I consider myself a major National Park nerd. Like Major — with a capital M. I have a personal goal to go to all of them at least once. I think it is incredible that our country has so much vast, delicate, majestic and mysterious land.

I have this hope, a dream really, that one day I’ll have the amazing opportunity to shoot a wedding or elopement in a National Park someday. So… if you’re a couple that is looking at getting married/eloping to a national park, PLEASE let this girl know! I would LOVE to be capture it!

With the recent news of Joshua National Tree Park being damaged, I couldn’t help but be so sad and heartbroken. However, I am thankful that I had the opportunity to go last year and walk amongst the park’s mysterious wonders and explore the incredible beauty of God’s handiwork. He is such an artist! I’ve been sitting here looking at pictures I took while visiting Joshua Tree and I truly cannot put into words the experience of walking through that masterpiece. So, I’m going to leave you with the images to speak for themselves. I did my best to capture a fraction of the beauty in the park. Hopefully it gives you a small taste of what there is to experience at Joshua Tree National Park. <3 MK

A Classic, Vintage Inspired Wedding at 409 South Main | Jaynee and Miles | Memphis Tennessee Wedding Photographer

When I first met Jaynee, her sweet, down to earth disposition and gorgeous red hair reminded me of a character you’d fall in love with out of a Jane Austin novel. She such a genuine and graceful personality that I loved. Her husband, Miles, with his true Southern gentleman charm and politeness perfectly compliments his darling wife. Together, they have the sweetest fur baby who was just as much apart of their wedding day as everyone else. Capturing them and their precious families on such an important day in their lives was a joy and privilege. :)

I personally loved all the classy, vintage touches Jaynee incorporated into their day. As well as proudly adding touches from their Ala Mater — Mississippi State. Check out the cowbells that pop up in a few places. ;)

Fun Fact: The image below — We stopped St. Patty’s Day traffic to get this awesome photo. It was quite humorous and 100% worth it.

Kailan & Tyler | A Sweet, End of Summer Engagement Session at Annesdale Mansion | Memphis Luxury Wedding Photographer

Kailan and Tyler engagement session at Annesdale Mansion shot by Mary Kate Steele Photography

It was clear from the moment I met these two in person for their engagement session that Tyler is crazy in love with his girl, Kailan. I love witnessing the love each of my couples share for one another. Everyone shows love in different ways, but the way Tyler showed his towards Kailan really spoke to me. Not only was he not bashful about showing how much he adores his soon-to-be bride, but he loves her with a sweet, tender love - a gentle love that is crazy about her and the little things she loves, like bows and ruffles. She is his princess.

During their engagement session, I encouraged them to start dancing. Tyler had no shame showing off his dance moves, including what he called “his signature move when he dances with Kailan”. Scroll down to see what I’m talking about. It’s super cute. :)

Kailan first caught Tyler’s eye in eighth grade! Back then he asked her out and she turned him down! (he wanted to make sure I knew that version of the “how did you two meet” story). According to Kailan, she thought Tyler was too cool for her at the time. Fast forward to last year, they reconnected and he had the courage to ask this pretty blonde out once again! This time, she said yes!

Then, he got her to say “yes” to forever! I cannot wait for their April wedding at the beautiful Annesdale Mansion in Memphis, TN. <3

So here’s a question for my readers: How did you meet you significant other? I love hearing how two people, who fall in love, meet for the first time.
