We LOVE it that we receive almost as many engagement shoots as we do weddings! We've said, forever and ever, that e*shoots are such a perfect time for you guys to get to know your photographer and for him/her to get to know you. It's also a time to work out the kinks in front of the camera. Work through the shyness and awkwardness so that on your wedding day, it's just you and your lovey and the cameras don't even phase you!
Now, having said that ... this engagement shoot is a little bit different. Martha and Dudley were actually married in 2008. But they didn't have engagement photos taken. We'll let Aaron Snow, their fab LBB photographer, fill you in on the rest!
From Aaron ... I shot Martha and Dudley's wedding in November 2008. Dudley had braces until the week of the wedding, so they opted out of having engagement photos done then. After almost two years since the wedding and lots of wedding referrals from Martha in Memphis, I went back to Memphis in July 2010 and did some "engagement" photos for them!
We shot these on Shelby Farms in Memphis, TN. I went to their house a little before the shoot and gathered things throughout the house that I thought would make a great shoot. Martha had those yellow flower balls in little vases throughout her house, so I knew we should use them as well as play off of the yellow theme! They borrowed the old bicycle from their good friends and we set out for an hour of fun in the gorgeous Memphis sun! I love this couple and love the feel of this shoot.
You see? It's never too late to have a special ~ just for the love of love ~ shoot!
Thanks to Martha & Dudley and Aaron Snow for sharing such a great day!
You can see their entire shoot in the SMP Photo Gallery.
