Family Portraits – Memphis, TN

I was in Memphis this month and while there, I set up a few family shoots (i.e. the locals). Featured here are two families, perfectly content to take some portraits in my parents’ back yard, which also happens to be the back yard of my childhood. As far as locations go, you could do way worse.

Farm Wedding – MEMPHIS, TN

I kid you not, the original venue for this bride’s October wedding burned to the ground one week before the ceremony. But as you can see below, everything ended up just fine. The mother of the bride just so happens to be a seasoned wedding planner, and along with a SWAT team of family and friends, they Charlie-Brown-Christmas-treed (start at 4:02) this thing together flawlessly. It was a rather incredible thing to witness.
