23 Jul kelli + josh: a midtown memphis engagement
Kelli and Josh met at work. He’s a pilot, and she worked at the same airline, so they would ocassionally bump into each other. Sometimes working in the same place puts a strain on a relationship, but that was never a problem for Kelli and Josh! They knew early on that if they could work together day in and day out, their relationship had promise!
It wasn’t always all work at the office, though! Kelli remembers fondly the time the fire alarm went off during the work day, and she happened to bump into Josh in the stairwell as all the employees filed outside onto the lawn. They stood outside for awhile, then decided that their time would be better spent eating ice cream, rather than standing around waiting. They walked the short distance to the ice cream place and took their time enjoying their treats on the way back. When they returned, everyone was still waiting outside and no one had even known they were gone. It was this love of fun, this seize-the-day attitude, and the way they both loved to laugh that drew them together!
We met Kelli and Josh in Overton Square for their midtown Memphis engagement shoot. They both love the atmosphere midtown offers, as well as the restaurants and the variety of beer selections there. When Kelli told me that she and Josh are easy going and love to laugh, I knew we were going to have a great time!
I love it when we can find little hidden gems in a location!
One of the things I love most about Kelli and Josh is how at ease they are around each other. They are completely comfortable when they’re together, and they made my job so easy!
Kelli, you are so gorgeous! I know Josh agrees.
This column was the EXACT color of Kelli’s dress! I couldn’t plan these things if I tried, y’all!
It was a gorgeous day, and we had to soak up a bit of the sun.
Bosco’s is Kelli’s and Josh’s favorite restaurant and brewery, so we had to make sure to get it in a few shots. I’m not going to complain about those flowers either!
After a change of clothes, we made our way to Shelby Farms to finish the session. Kelli and Josh love being outdoors. One of their favorite things to do together is take their dog to Shelby Farms for a day near the water. The sun over the lake was simply gorgeous!
I LOVED Kelli’s boots! She will be wearing these for the wedding as well 😉
I’ll end with this photo, because it’s the thing I love most about Kelli and Josh! They love life, and love being with each other. There’s no doubt about that!
Kelli and Josh, thank you so much for spending a summer evening with us! We were thrilled to get to know you better, and I think we need to hang out more often! You both are so much fun, and we had such a great time! So excited for the wedding!
Here’s to leaving work for ice cream. And laughing. Laughing a lot.
