29 Sep Detra + Fred | a Memphis City and Country Engagement
Detra is from a small rural town in Illinois and loves the farm life. Fred is from Memphis and loves the city light and energy. They may be opposites, but they compliment each other perfectly! We had to include both their personalities in their engagement shoot, so we went for both a city and country theme!
They were each waiting for the right one and the right time. After they met, they gave each other time and space, then reunited when they were ready. They love playfully competing against each other, and they both fall asleep in movies. They love the quiet life with a quirky sense of adventure!
Also, they are not afraid of the camera! It was so much fun capturing the love these two share. We started with Fred’s city preference, and met them downtown on Main Street. A striped skirt and red shoes? Yes, please!
The forecast said rain, but we took a chance anyway! The dark clouds stayed behind us for the whole shoot, so it was meant to be!
I love a girl who knows how to accessorize!
Seriously, I wish I could take credit for this shot, but it is just their natural cute-ness!
The sun made an effort to peek out for a few minutes, and we soaked it up!
After a change of clothes, we went in search of fields and trees to capture the country side of things that Detra loves! Nothing better than a field of yellow flowers!
Doesn’t Fred have the cutest dimples? I see why Detra likes him!
Ahhh… sunset on the river. It turned out to be a beautiful day for an engagement session!
Detra and Fred, thank you for risking the rain and spending an evening with us! We loved getting to know you better, and we had so much fun! We can’t wait for the wedding!
