Emily + Dustin | Engagement

Hello, world! Meet, Emily, Dustin, and Khaki!
Emily, Dustin and Khaki, meet the blog world!

These two are hilarious and were great sports to tough it out on a cold, windy, and just weird-weather day here in Memphis!
The both live in the beautiful state of Virginia and are having their wedding here this spring! I’m so excited!

Several people have mentioned the fact that I have a lot of dogs appearing in my engagement sessions.
Well, it’s NO surprise that I LOVE pets, especially dogs! Anytime they can join us, I’m all for it! After all, they are family too!
Why do I always start out with the puppy pictures? Simple, because they are ridiculously fun and break the ice. :)

Speaking of pets, Khaki is one awesome dog!
She can eat treats off my camera lens and does the best high-fives I have ever seen!
See for yourself…

Josie + Bob | Engagement

I am so excited to finally get this session up! Josie and Bob are phenomenal! (And their little dog, Bonnie, is a sweetheart!)

These two have a neat story of coming together and I laugh everytime I hear where Bob hid the ring for the proposal! :D
Even more amazing, last year Bob found out he had thyroid cancer. While it was unexpected and scary, he recovered well, with only a little scar to show!
Their love for each other and faith in Christ just beam from them! I’m honored to have these two in my “family”.
Bob wrote to me, “I hope [others] see two people that truly were made to be together. God brought us together, and I hope they see His fingerprints on our life.”

Everything in this session means something to the two of them – I love it all!
1. Bonnie, who is naturally adorable! She just adores Bob! :)
2. Josie directs a fantastic childhood development program here in Memphis. I love the shirt Bob wears. Bob, you are a real man!
3. The balcony is where they first began dating. (AKA, had their DTR talk and made it official)  ;)
4. They love downtown and that’s where Bob proposed. The National Ornamental Metal Museum is where they love to go and they’ll also have their reception there.

Jennifer + Brad | Engagement

Jennifer began blog-stalking me in 2009 and was quick to tell me she was getting married in 2011!
These two are precious, precious, precious! They have become sweet friends and I am soooo excited to finally have done their session!

This whole time, Jennifer has been watching other people all over my blog and now she’s FINALLY on it! :D
Jennifer and Brad had some really cool ideas and this session definitely screams who they are!

A few notable details from the session:

1. “You want me to climb those sketchy “stairs” in heels? Sure, Amy, no problem!” said Jennifer.

2. “I’ll climb the hill, walk across those tracks and in the gravel. No problem, Amy!” said Jennifer.

3. “So, I have these frames. Wanna take ’em and smush your faces against it?” said me.

4. “Oh, my gosh that sounds hilarious! We’ll do it!” said Jennifer and Brad.

5. Brad proposed to Jennifer by hiding her ring in a bag of peanuts.

6. They are huge University of Memphis Tiger fans!

7. Their first kiss was in a stairwell.

8. I cannot stop laughing and saying, “awww” when I look at these two. :)
