Justin + Shay’s intimate Memphis Wedding
 Bride and Groom exit their backyard ceremony with smiles during sunset.

You meet people in your life who you can just look at and tell they were meant to be together, and Justin and Shay are some of those people. They’ve been together for over a decade, love similar things, have fun and caring friends, and co-exist so well together. 

When I found out they were finally getting married, I was so excited! Justin proposed at Disney World (I know, goals!) and of course Shay said yes! These two care about their friends and family so much and it was amazing to see how much support they received from their love ones. Their ceremony was in Justin’s mom’s backyard, and it was so beautiful, classic, and intimate.  As they got ready for the ceremony you could only feel joy and excitement. The moment Shay walked out, you could feel everyone’s breath stop. Justin couldn’t help but blurt out “Oh f**k...”. She was absolutely a princess and stunning doesn’t even begin to describe her in that dress.  

The ceremony was filled with easy giggles, tears from everyone in the bridal party, and so much passion that everyone in attendance could feel it.   

The reception was held at Justin and Shay’s house with all their closest friends.  The food was your typical party food: chicken wings, french fries, chips & dips (including Shay’s famous spinach dip that I probably ate 5 servings of), Pokemon cupcakes, chocolate-covered strawberries… and it was all absolutely perfect and delicious! The atmosphere was filled with excitement and laughter, and was the most comfortable and enjoyable reception I’ve ever been to. Filled with old friends and new, the couple didn’t need anything super fancy or elaborate to showcase the extent of their love.

CONGRATULATIONS, GUYS! You deserve your happily ever after!

It was hot hot hot at Bill and Allyson’s wedding, and it wasn’t just because it happened in the sizzling Memphis heat! This fun-loving couple found each other at the perfect time in their lives, and have so much joy and passion for each other!

They got married at Germantown Great Hall surrounded by so many of their family and friends that it was amazing to be a part of it! You can tell they have the best people surrounding them, and always live to enjoy life.  

Check out some images from their day below!

Memphis in-home couples session with Brenna + Chris.

Once Brenna and Chris described their midtown Memphis home to me, I was determined to shoot there! With its amazing wallpaper, beautiful backyard, and within walking distance to a local skatepark with urban art- it was a dream home for this perfect couple! 

I got to know Brenna and Chris through these pictures: an aerialist couple, who slow dances to the radio, bakes vegan chocolate chip cookies, practices in their backyard, holds hands and toes, and just enjoys being in each other’s presence! 

Forreal couple goals!  

Heather + Tyler's Unique Memphis Backyard Wedding

Heather and Tyler are a couple that you can glance at and see how strong their love is. If their wedding told me anything, it's that they are going to have a blast going through life together!

Their whole wedding was put together by family and friends, in their relative's "backyard". (It was more of their entire property!) It was such an awesome and unique setting, complete with vintage cars, knick knacks, and even a fire-breathing dragon! 

The day was filled with cute gestures, love and support, and a surprise from each of them to the other! Heather got Tyler's mom to sing their first dance song without him knowing, and he surprised her with a song of his own! The night ended with a huge sparkler exit and time spent with their loved ones.

Check out their pictures and see how amazing their wedding was for yourself!

I've known Heather since I was a child (my mother babysat her, and she babysat me!), and it so great to reunite to celebrate this important day in her life!

I finally got to meet Tyler and the two of them together are such a blast! We got to face some fears of the bees in the beautiful summer sunflowers, take some funny cliche poses, and Tyler even made up a song for Heather about posing on the bridge! 

Check out this adorable and fun-loving couple, and get excited with me for their ceremony this Saturday!
