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 Anthropologie Inspired Home in Chickasaw Gardens | Lifestyle | Destination Wedding Photographer

anthropologie-home-chickasaw-gardens-memphis-mary-kate-steele-photography

Lifestyle. This word has many meanings, but in the photography world, lifestyle is a type of photography. For example, Lifestyle family photography is a style that documents candid, unposed moments. These sort of sessions can also be quite “styled” as well! They can happen outdoors or indoors, however, I personally love shooting lifestyle family sessions in a family’s home.

Lifestyle photography is also capturing still images and details that speak of “style” and “design”. I absolutely love creating with lifestyle photography. I love the fine details that tell a deeper story and all those images put together tell one lovely story. My sweet friend AK (Anna Katherine), lives in one of the most beautiful and oldest neighborhoods in Memphis — about 10 minutes from me. Her home is stunning, full of old character and personality. She has gorgeous taste and has decorated her home in the most lovely way. She gave me a tour of her home this past week and I was in awe. Her style along with the style and character of the home go compliment each other perfectly. I felt like I had stepped into an Anthropologie magazine. AK has beautiful plants in every corner of her home, which is no surprise, since she has her own floral and event business. Photographing her home was so good for my heart and creativity — and so is her friendship in my life. <3
