They are high school sweethearts who followed each other to Mississippi State University (they just graduated!) and together they have two adorable Australian Shepherd pups! (I can’t wait to meet them!) They’ve been on this life adventure together for the past five years and now they are ready to seal the deal and make it official! Juliet and Wesley are the sweetest souls you’ll ever meet and are sure to put a smile on your face! We had so much fun laughing and laughing during their engagement session!

Juliet and Wes! I am so thrilled and honored to be your wedding photographer! I am getting so excited and counting down the days till March when we celebrate your beautiful Annesdale Mansion wedding!

An Adorable, Summer Morning Engagement Session at the Brooks Museum | Meredith and Andrew | Destination Fine Art Wedding Photographer

Meet Meredith and Andrew! These two couldn’t get any cuter! Meredith is the most adorable, bubbly darling girl and brings out Andrew’s sweet, down to earth, gentle personality in the best ways. They are smitten in every way and it showed throughout our time together during their session. These two have beautiful hearts for the Lord and simply put - SO MUCH FUN! I am noticing a serious trend with all my MKS couples.

Meredith and Andrew have been in a long distance relationship as they love and support each other’s dreams. I have so much respect for that and commend them! Long distance relationship are not easy; I can attest to that. It takes special people to make long distance work so well. That being said, they are ready to put an end to the distance and Andrew proposed to Meredith earlier this Spring while they vacationed in the Dominican! They do have that cute, beach SoCal vibe about them that I adore!

They are planning a January 2020 Memphis wedding and I am so excited I have the privilege to capture their sweet, bubbly, contagious love story. <3

I don’t know how, but I truly get so lucky with the sweetest, funnest, most adorable couples — I’m so thankful and happy, I could pinch myself! God has truly given me some of the most precious friendships from this business of mine.

Springtime Metropolitan Engagement | Casey and Matthew | Downtown Memphis, TN | Destination Wedding Photographer

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!
