A Romantic, Candlelit High Cotton Wedding | Laura and Isaac | Memphis Fine Art Wedding Photographer

When I first met with Laura to chat about her wedding day, I was immediately drawn to her precious sweet, Southern spirit and thoughtfulness! She came to our little macaroon and coffee date with the cutest little “happy” for me. (I call them happy’s. Little, thoughtful gifts). Laura had done her homework (ie: watching my IG Stories and reading my posts) and discovered how much I love National Parks. I’m quite a NP nerd. No shame here. We both quickly discovered our mutual love for travel! She surprised me with an official National Park Passport book — seriously, the cutest gift. I cannot wait to go visit all the National Parks and fill up my book she gave me! This is just a hint at how thoughtful Laura is and how much attention she gives to details.

Laura and Isaac are some of the most hospitable people I have ever met! So down to earth, graceful and generous. They sure know how to love well the people in their lives. Getting to know them and capturing their wedding was a joy and such a privilege! They had an intimate, romantic candlelit ceremony and reception at the stunning High Cotton Brewery. It was absolutely beautiful! I was so impressed by Laura, who arranged all the florals for the wedding and again, paid so much attention to the details of the day!

Huge shoutout to them for being so willing to shoot so many portraits and (in three different locations, guys!) in the smoldering heat of the day! They had the biggest smiles on their faces the entire day. Laura & Isaac, thank you so much for asking me to be a part of your special day and trusting me to capture it! You guys are rockstars.

xoxo, Mary Kate

An Annesdale Mansion Wedding | Kailan and Tyler | Memphis, TN | Destination Fine Art Wedding Photographer

springtime-wedding-at-annesdale-mansion-tyler-kailan-mary-kate-steele-photography

There are certain days that remind me what a privilege and joy it is to do what I do…photograph such special moments in another person’s life. Kailan and Tyler’s wedding was one of those days for me. This day was literally perfect in every way. A forecast calling for rain on their day turned into a cool, breezy mid 70’s sunny day. This day was filled with so much joy and it was contagious. From their amazing bridal party to their wonderful parents and families to their beloved guests, everyone radiated so much love and joy. We were all overjoyed to witness these two childhood friends become husband and wife! Read more about their love story and how they met here!

There are endless highlights about their gorgeous day that I could share, but the one that stuck out to me (and the other vendors participating with this moment) the most was their first look. I personally adore first looks and have witnessed so many precious ones, but this specific first look goes down in the books as my favorite. Their first look had me, the videographer and our second shooters all in tears. I think it is most brides’ dream for their groom to react the way Tyler did when he turned around and saw Kailan for the first time in her dress. It was so genuine and sincere. His eyes welled up with tears and he fell to his knees not once, but three times! Tyler was completely blown away by the beauty of his bride. Once we all got ourselves together, (lol) they then read out loud the letters they had written to one another. (cue more tears from us vendors). Afterwards, Tyler surprised Kailan with a gift. He gave her a thick, leather bond journal - 150 pages - to be exact. Each page filled with hand written entries to her. Every day, for 150 days leading up to their wedding, over his lunch break, Tyler sat down and wrote to his future bride. Their first look and Tyler’s gift to Kailan was one of the most romantic gestures I’ve witnessed.

Kailan & Tyler! Your willingness to give me extra time for your portraits make me LOVE YOU FOREVER! Thank you so much for having me be your wedding photographer and trusting me with your memories! I truly feel like the luckiest to have been the one to capture your special day!!

Enjoy a few of my favorites from this gorgeous Annesdale Mansion wedding!

xoxo, Mary Kate
