I really love enthusiastic couples, and that's exactly what Ben and Courtney are. We met Ben and Courtney, they booked us for their November wedding, and we shot their engagement photos all the same day! Courtney and I had talked on the phone once before and prearranged everything so it's not quite as crazy at it just sounded, but still, it was just crazy enough to keep things interesting. Not only did I have just a little bit of an adrenaline buzz going because we were about to photograph an amazing sounding couple that I hadn't met yet, we were doing it in one of my favorite places in Memphis, Overton Square. I LOVE Overton Square like you can't even imagine and up until this shoot I was super bummed that no one had ever asked me do engagement photos for them here. I think the idea of it being such a busy place scares people away just a little. I think I could have done their entire session in each of the places we stopped. Well, except for the middle of the street. That probably would've been a really bad idea.
I mentioned earlier that Ben and Courtney sounded amazing on the phone and I have to say that when we met them I wasn't disappointed at all. This couple absolutely killed me you guys. We're shooting away in front of this super fun mural and Ben leans over and tell Courtney he's going to whisper something in her ear. She gives him this slightly shocked look and asks "Have you been looking at Pinterest"! I don't know what he said to her but the photo moment that resulted was magic. Ben, you keep that up buddy and you'll earn a lifetime of brownie points before you know it!
We hope you guys enjoy seeing this super fun shoot as much as we enjoyed shooting it.
