02 Feb Urban Downtown Memphis Winter Engagement
Ebony and Brandon are our kind of people, and we knew that right away! They are funny, they love to laugh, and they are kind and considerate on the inside. Not to mention that they are such a HOT couple on the outside! After their engagement session, they welcomed us into their beautiful downtown condo. As we sat in front of their 10th floor balcony, watching the barges slowly drift down the Mississippi River and sipping on champagne, we chatted like we had all been old friends forever. Cool droplets formed on the outside of our glasses while time moved slowly and almost seemed to stand still. We talked about travel and life in Memphis. And we talked about love. These two have it in spades, and that may just be our favorite thing about them!
They were on complete opposite sides of the country. Ebony was enjoying the warm weather and sunny beaches in California, until she decided to move to Memphis for nursing school. Brandon was finishing up a position on the bustling financial streets of New York, and he met Ebony shortly after returning home. Now they’re in love, have a beautiful condo, and plan to stay and make Memphis their home.
You wanna know how awesome these two are?? Ebony and Brandon began their engagement with a love rap. A love. rap. He knew he wanted to propose during a trip to Punta Cana, but he wasn’t quite sure how to do it. Improvising, he took her for a walk through the resort gardens. Lucky for him, Ebony chose that moment to do a spontaneous rap about how she felt about him. When it was time for his turn, Ebony couldn’t help thinking that it was the worst rap ever. It didn’t even rhyme! Then he finished it by getting down on one knee while she cried for two solid minutes. He had managed to surprise the girl who said she couldn’t be surprised.
We met Ebony and Brandon in downtown Memphis, their home turf. This is where they live, and where they will be beginning their marriage, so it only made sense to document their love there. We had such a great time getting to know them, and just wait until you see them turn up the heat! We cannot WAIT for this wedding!
We just hope there’s a love rap involved.
