20 May amanda + kevin: joined. a memphis wedding.
Amanda and Kevin have a kind of classic, timeless love. They love the way a man and a woman are meant to love, with everything they have and their whole hearts. They make each other better and are complete when they are together. They share all the important things, and they make all their decisions as one. They love not only each other, but their families, with a fierce strength. Together, they are trusting and kind, honest and genuine, happy and fun. Everything they should be. Everything they need to be.
Over the past year, Amanda and Kevin have slowly made the transition from clients to friends in our lives. On their wedding day, we got the rare pleasure of not only documenting their love, but watching two of our good friends pledge their lives to each other. Though the forecast predicted rain, the day could not have been more beautiful and sunny. It was a welcome, gracious surprise. As are they.
Amanda and Kevin chose to see each other before the ceremony, and their First Look was full of happiness!
Amanda’s dad got unexpectedly choked up when he saw her in her wedding dress. I love this moment between the two of them!
After the First Look, we traveled to an offsite location for gorgeous portraits and wedding party photos.
Love this moment when the ladies photobombed the guys’ photo!
Amanda’s mom couldn’t hold back her tears when she put the veil on right before the ceremony.
Ed caught this amazing moment between Amanda and her brother after becoming Mr. and Mrs.
We took a few minutes before the reception for more portrait photos right before sunset, and I’m so glad we did! These were my favorite from the entire day.
Amanda and Kevin, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your day! Your love is truly an honor and a joy to witness. I can’t wait to hear all about Mexico! Drink a margarita for me!
Here’s to classic and timeless. And an unexpected sunny day. And clients who become friends. Cheers!
