I've been out of the photography game for a little bit. But when I got the text Friday that they needed a photographer the following morning for a wedding ceremony, my heart exploded.
I've known Michael for what feels like forever. His sister was one of my bridesmaids and still a very close friend. Jamie and I have worked together at FedEx for a long time. When I found out the two of them were dating, my two worlds collided and it just made sense. They are so in love and so perfect for each other.
They knew instantly it was right. I told them that I knew Ryan was the man I was going to marry the moment I shook his hand for the first time. Sometimes, you just know instantly.
Jamie & Michael, I am so happy for you. I am also looking forward to being in the Grove this fall! I wish you many years of happiness and love. Hope you enjoy your pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them. Read More
I'm in love with this sweet engagement session. John proposed to Stephanie at Raiford's Downtown, so I knew these guys were going to be a blast to work with! We started the day Riverside with their fur babies. Then we went to several cool little spots Downtown, and they were joking around and having fun the whole time. I can't wait to celebrate your big day!! :) Read More
FINALLY - I can share this amazing wedding at the Memphis Country Club.
When I showed up to Michael and Laura's rehearsal dinner (I've posted a few of the images below the video), I KNEW the wedding was bound to be spectacular.
Their wedding was almost as amazing as they are. After a night of tears, laughs, and wine at Itta Bena... (Where I learned a lot of interesting facts about the bride and the groom thanks to the groomsmen speeches), I showed up to the Memphis Country Club and was instantly overwhelmed by the explosions of flowers, the champagne ice sculpture, the stunning ballroom. The vendors involved really knew what they were doing.
Mr. and Mrs. Black have an amazing group of people that surround them. They made the day so incredibly fun, and I couldn't have been more honored to have been on the frontline capturing this special time in their life. Read More
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LIZZY!!! I TOTALLY meant to deliver your pictures on your birthday! I love you, sweet girl! I hope your day is as sweet as you. Now to the good stuff...S o this wedding was a unique one for me. I knew the whole wedding party. My brother-in-law was the best man. I've known these kids since they were in high school and seen them all grow up practically. Lizzy was adamant that she wanted me to take pictures the whole day, but then at the reception she wanted me to let my second shooter take over so I could get my crunk on. And, boy, did I get my crunk on. You will not be seeing those pictures. Ryan (the groom), told me last July that he would be proposing in August. I was there for the proposal, and I also did their engagement pictures. Now they are all grown up and married. I cried a lot at their wedding. The Maddox Foundation house in Hernando, MS was an absolutely stunning setting in Desoto County for their beautiful day. Though it did start off a little hectic with the rain - which ended up significantly cooling things down outside once the rain stopped - the day ended perfectly. Read More
