Crystal + Garrett // Take the Stage

What can I say about Crystal and Garrett? Their cuteness kills me. KILLS me. I was excited when they told me they had rented out the Orpheum theater in downtown Memphis for their engagement session, but when they showed up decked out in stage worthy outfits, I about died. And then when I realized we pretty much had free reign of the place, the creative juices began flowing.

The theater setting makes total sense for these two, because Garrett is a bit of a theater buff, and they even got engaged at a showing of The Lion King while they were in New York City. They’ve also got some stage presence and were naturals for the camera. So all in all, we had a really fun afternoon playing, and I’m pretty sure I gave them an Olympic workout with how many times we went up and down the balcony stairs. ;)

Shooting indoors in such a dramatic location was a fun change of pace for me. I broke out my off-camera light and LOVE what we got.

Hey Urban Outfitters– looking for some new models? Because I know this one couple….

Thank you guys SO much for such a fun day, and also for the incredibly sweet early birthday gift. :) Can’t wait for your wedding in July!

A few of my favorites are the bow and courtsey, the balcony “scene” and the hallway with display of plays. Goodness, I guess I love them ALL!
