Benjamin and Haley's Outdoor Engagement Session at the Agricenter

I adore each and every couple that I work with, and I especially love when I book a couple that I get along with like we've been friends forever! Haley was referred to me by another very talented photographer, Brandy Kemp, and it turns out my husband is good friends with her brother. Small world, right?! Well Haley and I met in person at my favorite coffee shop, and I could tell we would get along just fine. When I saw her again with Benjamin for their e-session, I had a blast. We met at the Agricenter on Walnut Grove rd. and drove up Farm road for a few different locations. We kept it simple by using mostly fields and vegetation (what little is left) in the background. I loved the shot of Benjamin on his mower, he runs a landscaping business, and Haley in her white coat, she's a vet. It's such a cute little personal photo for them!

I hope you guys enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them :) I am counting down the days to their wedding next summer!

Tyler and Hannah's Fall Heartwood Hall Memphis Wedding

I am so excited to share Tyler and Hannah's wedding preview! It just so happened that their wedding day was on my birthday, and I can't think of a better way to have spent it. Hannah and her bridesmaids, along with some family and friends, did hair and makeup at a hotel in Collierville. It was a full house, so there was lots to photograph! I loved the great natural light from the huge window. I also loved the plaid, lace-trim shirts that Hannah gave her maids to wear when they got ready. Such an adorable idea for a bridesmaid gift! These girls were absolutely a joy to be around all day.

Everyone finished getting ready at the venue, the absolutely perfect Heartwood Hall. I am seriously obsessed with this venue. The grounds are so beautiful! Everything was completely seamless throughout the day, which to me is the mark of a great venue. We arranged a "first look" between Hannah and Tyler, and then took portraits. They were absolutely adorable together, and I seriously could have photographed the two of them all day! We had to move on to the rest of the photos, though :)

The ceremony was fantastic, particularly the prayer with Tyler and Hannah's parents. It was so special to see them gathered at the altar to pray together for the new marriage taking place. It was just a beautiful ceremony all around! Following the ceremony, everyone ate a selection of savory food and some phenomenal cupcakes. Then, what's next? Dancing of course! It was such a fun and love-filled wedding, and I wish the Stephens a long and happy marriage <3 nbsp="" p="">
