Howdy y’all!

Hope everyone is having an amazingggggg weekend so far! Memphis is bumpin’ with all sorts of activities this weekend, and the weather is perfect for it!

As for me, I’ve been bustin’ a move on finishing up Casey and Derek’s wedding photos!! Woooowoooo!! And I cannot WAIT to show you!

These two (maybe you remember them from their engagement shoot) tied the knot at the brand new Zambezi Exhibit at the Memphis Zoo!! What an awesome setting. Random hippos were making appearances during some of the more formal shots, not to mention a quick pic with a crocodile. 🙂

So just a few things to note for their day. Casey and Derek actually live downtown, so we were able to get some really fun first look photos right on the river! See what flexibility a first look can do for you?? Their day was actually a really gorgeous day to shoot. It was a tad overcast with a little bit of sun peaking out! It was perfect!! Did you know that overcast days actually make for some really nice shots? Overcast light creates very even and soft lighting that is really nice to shoot in compared to harsh sun. Just a little photo 101 for people, especially my brides worried about cloudy days when we shoot. Anyhoo, on to the photos!!
