If you've followed the blog for very long you're probably aware that before I was a full time photographer I was an accountant by day. Getting that accounting degree and learning how businesses operate is honestly one of the better decisions I made in college. Some days though, I wonder if I would've been better off being a meteorologist. Last Friday was one of those days. Carley and I had been chatting about the chance of rain for a couple of days by the time Friday rolled around. I had hoped that it would all be a false alarm and Friday would be sunny and beautiful. When I got out of bed that morning though and it looked like it was still nighttime outside I realized that wasn't, unfortunately, going to be the case. As the day progressed though, the weather forecast got better and better and by the time we were leaving for Annesdale it looked pretty great out in Cordova. That wasn't the case on the other end of Memphis though. It sprinkled on us three times as we made our way downtown. To say that I was just a bit nervous that the heavens would open up as soon as we got there is a little bit of an understatement. Thankfully though the rain held and we were able to shoot pretty much any and everywhere we wanted!
When I say everywhere I don't really mean everywhere. Annesdale is full of beautiful spots to shoot and as much as I would've loved to stop at EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. of them I decided to use some restraint. A) I'm not sure Joseph and Carley would've appreciated me turning their engagement shoot into a 6 hour shoot, and B) I wanted to save some spots for wedding day. Since their wedding is in late spring we for sure wanted some great outdoor spots for wedding day. We're so excited for Joseph and Carley's wedding day mostly because we enjoy hanging out with them but also because every time Carley starts talking about ideas and details my brain starts to melt a little with excitement.
