This is Casey and Matthew! These two are the essence of fun, laid back and adorable! For their engagement session, Casey and Matthew wanted to go back to the spot where they first met — Bardog, a local bar in downtown Memphis! I love getting the chance to hear how my sweet couples meet and walk down memory lane with them. Visiting where their sweet love first sparked was a privilege! It was a lot of fun getting creative with them! Bardog is a pretty awesome bar downtown. The vibe and the people hanging out there totally reminded me of that 80’s TV show, Cheers! Bardog is that cool neighborhood bar where you may find a friend or maybe even your forever best friend. ;)

We spent the rest of the session walking around the South Main District, enjoying downtown and finally wrapping up on their apartment rooftop taking in the beautiful Memphis city scape!! It really was a wonderful evening and incredible weather, too! I cannot wait for their downtown Memphis wedding in November!

Wine Tumblers - The Perfect Bridesmaids Gift For Your Girls | Product Review | Fine Art Destination Wedding Photographer

Happy Friday friends!

So. I totally had this super fun girls’ wine night photo shoot planned and then life got in the way for all of us and it just couldn’t happen. Haha! I think we all needed that wine night, so it’ll have to happen another time. Friday nights, before I wake up the next morning to shoot a wedding, I like to unwind after a long week and sit down with a glass of wine. I think having a glass of wine to wind down is most definitely a girl thing. Of course, I always prefer Friday wine nights with a sweet friend to catch up and talk a girl things! :)

I was so excited when Bridebop reached out to me about working together! Bridebop is a super cute website that offer so many adorable customized bridesmaids gifts for brides to give to their BFFs! Wine tumblers, weekend bags, necklaces, fanny-packs, robes and gift boxes are just a few of the options! These wine tumblers, to be specific, come in a few color options and are the best quality! They are so comfortable to hold and keep wine nice and cool! They also come with lids - which I found to be a great feature.

Brides, these tumblers are such a fun and practical gift option for your girls! You can’t go wrong with them! Oh! And bonus, they make for cute props for wedding day prep photos!! Add adorable robes, customized wine tumblers for some bubbly, you (the bride) with your cute girls and you have such adorable photos waiting to be taken! As a photographer, I would definitely approve these as photo worthy. ;)

Sweet, Springtime Engagement, Memphis, TN | Laura and Isaac | Pennsylvania and Tennessee Wedding Photographer

Spring has officially arrived in Memphis! The cherry blossom trees and thousands of tulips are everywhere! Oh the color! It makes my heart so happy! A few weeks ago just as the warm Spring sun started coming out, Laura, Isaac and I trekked out about an hour outside of Memphis to Isaac’s family farm for their engagement session!

Isaac’s family are farmers and own so much beautiful land! Isaac and Laura plan to build a gorgeous home of their own on the land. I can completely see why! These two are some of the sweetest people you will meet with the most genuine Southern hospitality. It was such a privilege getting to see some of the farm, learn a little bit about Isaac’s family heritage and hear about their home plans! I am so excited for their June Memphis wedding! It is going to be gorgeous! :)

xoxo,

MK
