Sara & Ryan's Engagement - Memphis South Main Arts District
Congratulations to Sara and Ryan on their upcoming wedding this summer. We set out on an engagement adventure a couple of weeks ago, in the South Main Street arts district. Usually in April, the weather is getting warm, but this weekend the temps dropped into the 50's, so our couple got to snuggle a lot! I wanted these images to have a little bit of a "love in Paris" feel to them. The back drop of the Farmers Market was so much fun, as I shot these it reminded me of trolly cars in Amsterdam, and "The Hill" in Paris. All of the open markets and cafes in Paris are so quaint, I'll always remember the time my wife and I went to Paris........anyway, on to a sneak peek for Sara & Ryan!
