A few weeks ago I had the best trip to Clarksdale, Mississippi to do Taylor Allen and Katie’s May golden hour engagement session! This NWA engagement photographer has done sessions in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri and beyond, but never Mississippi…until now, that is! The day before our session, I drove down to shoot a gorgeous wedding with another sweet photographer at St. Anthony’s on the Creek (SUCH an amazing venue) in Little Rock and stayed the night there at the super classy Burgundy Hotel (LOVE that place, such a great little boutique hotel) before driving down to Clarksdale on Sunday morning.
Despite waking up to a flat tire (UGH), I made it to the Mississippi Delta by early afternoon and unlike most of my engagement sessions, we had all the time in the world to shoot! We started scouting around and shooting by 3pm and didn’t quit until close to 8pm, and that resulted in one of my favorite engagement sessions ever.
Taylor Allen and Katie have such great chemistry together (and the sweetest story of reconnecting and falling in love that I’ll have to let them share sometime!) and have such kind personalities too. Their little town is just rich with beautiful places to shoot – cypress trees that are hundreds of years old, incredible historic buildings with gorgeous architecture, miles and miles of beautiful farmland with endless rows plowed, ready for planting…safe to say I was in heaven. And they made this NWA engagement photographer so welcome there, I almost didn’t want to leave! 🙂 And I surely can’t wait to head back down there in November for their wedding!
Now, enjoy these images of these two lovebirds being all adorable in front of my camera for me. Scroll down and leave them some kind words in the comment section!
