We traveled to Oxford, Mississippi for Taylor & Hampton's winter engagement session, shooting at Rowan Oak (the home of famed author William Faulkner), historic Oxford Square (including Square Books), and a few locations on the Ole Miss campus.
Rowan Oak, in particular, is one of my favorite places to shoot. So many cool nooks and crannies on that property!
I can’t wait for Shelby & Todd’s wedding at Spring Creek Ranch. The entire location is simply amazing.
These two were so much fun to shoot—SUPER chilled. You can see how comfortable and romantic they are together. It makes a HUGE difference in the pics.

Such an amazing day we had with Megan & Prayash for their multicultural Indian wedding at Memphis Botanic Garden.
Their day started out with an American wedding ceremony in the morning, then a wardrobe change and Baraat—or groom’s wedding procession—complete with a horse-drawn carriage. A full Indian wedding ceremony followed, finished off by a killer dance party, hosted by DJ Mark Malatesta of Jordabella Entertainment.
The whole shindig was put together by one of our absolute favorite wedding planners—Katherine Benson, of Bella Baxter Special Events. As usual, her team pulled off a stunning wedding. Bride’s hair by Allison Becksfort, beautiful flowers by Ashlye McCormick Floral Design, catering by Draper’s, and event rentals by Elegant Chair Solutions.
When we shot Brandey and Dearl’s wedding at the Crown Winery in Humboldt, TN, it was only the second one we had ever shot there. It’s safe to say that we’re already in love with it! How could we not be? The late afternoon light out in the vineyard is to die for! It’s an amazing and beautiful location for an outdoor wedding.
The guys from DeepBlu Entertainment were spinning the tunes, and the couple chose Etta James’ classic “At Last” for their first dance.
The bride & groom shared cake and doughnuts (we love those!) for a late night snack, before making their exit through a sea of bubbles.
Congratulations Brandey & Dearl! Thank you for allowing us to photograph your wedding!

When we arrived at Spring Creek Ranch to shoot Danielle & Tyler’s engagement pics, there was just one thing missing—Tyler’s pants! Of course he had on pants, but not the ones he wanted for later in the session, so there was a frantic call to have some friends (one of our former wedding couples—Ashley & Ryan!) bring another pair. Crisis averted, and the session went on as planned. As usual, the visual appeal of Spring Creek Ranch did not disappoint. Every inch of that place is beautiful!
Many thanks to Toni Williams at Spring Creek Ranch, and to Kasey Acuff Makeup Artist.
