Jennifer + Adam | Engagement


There is no greater honor than to photograph two friends that have come to love each other!

I first met Adam at the University of Memphis. I was sitting in a dark humid office, designing a t-shirt for a student organization. I knew he was cool when he approved the slogan,
“We won’t BSU at the BSU”.  The idea didn’t pass, but nonetheless, Adam became friends with me and (my not-yet-husband-or-even-boyfriend) Andrew.
Adam is really sarcastic and adventurous. He’s laid back and is so fun to be around.

I’ve known Jennifer for what seems like forever! Her and I grew up in the same church. I was even her Orchestra Coordinator. Basically, I was their paper music slave. :D
She’s quiet when you first meet her, but a ball of energy and kindness when she opens up!

I’ve seen them both date other people and when they started dating I was so excited deep down. I remember saying to someone, “Now that’s a good match.”


These guys could have chosen anyone as their wedding photographer and I am thrilled from head to toe that it’s me!
They are tons of fun, talented musicians, sports fans, and are just down right ridiculously awesome!
I can’t wait for their wedding and to see two great friends grow old together!

Rachel + Jeff | Engagement

What a special couple to me! Jeff is a fantastic musician and Rachel is the sweetest person you will ever meet!
I knew Jeff while our educational paths briefly crossed at the University of Memphis. I knew of Rachel, but didn’t know her that well.
She was a bride’s maid in a wedding of mine a couple of years ago and then several of her friends have been part of the amydale family.

I’m so thrilled they asked me to shoot their engagement session! They are soooo much fun! Which I know everyone is going to tell by these pictures!
I look forward to Rachel’s bridal session in the spring – ah, girl! You are going to be a beautiful bride!
I won’t be able to shoot their wedding, but hey, wedding photographer, you better treat them right! They are awesome! ;)

P.S. For those of you who won’t recognize it, Jeff’s guitar is a Breedlove guitar. :)

Kaitlin & Mac | Engagement


First, I want to say a major awesome THANK YOU to these two for putting up with a chilly morning session!
You were flexible and amazing! Thank you for doing that so I could travel to see my precious new little nephew!


I knew Kaitlin was going to be awesome the second I met her. Seriously. When Kaitlin came and met with me, she talked about Mac and I honestly felt like Mac was there.
She spoke so vividly of his kindness, patience, and fun-loving attitude. After we had talked about their long-distance relationship, I asked her about how she knew he was it.
She sat on my couch and with little tears rolling down her cheeks, she simply said,
“After us being apart, I know for sure I just can’t live without him. I don’t want to live without him.”

(Tissue, please?!)

With that said, I honestly can’t wait for their wedding next year! These two are fabulous and I couldn’t be more honored to have them in the amydale family!


Kaitlin & Mac – 16 September 2010


Kaitlin’s dad made the letters and Kaitlin stained them. I love them!


Mac proposed to Kaitlin at Harry’s restaurant downtown…


The Cadre Building, where they first met each other…
