Jessica & Neil's Wedding in Memphis - Michael Allen Photography

I met Jessica & her parents who found me through my studio referrals. I knew that this would be a great family to work with, and really looked forward to shooting her wedding. Jessica and her new husband Neil, will be residing in Montana, another one of my favorite places to visit, and my wife's home state. This was a very fun wedding, despite the brutal high temperatures and high humidity. A couple of weeks before the wedding, a storm took out the main air conditioning unit at St Mary's Cathedral downtown, but fortunately they had a huge temporary AC unit piping in cold air into the main cathedral, however, the beautiful outdoor courtyard was full of heavy duty AC gear, and prevented us from shooting much out there. I'll also have to say the party at the reception was one of the best I've seen, everyone had a blast and the band was another highlight of the evening. Here are a few of the highlights from Jessica and Neil's Wedding in Memphis.
