Pam Beasley’s Engagement Pictures/ aka: Memphis Engagement: Craig and Claire

Our first stop on our workshop road trip was Memphis Tennessee. We stopped there to do an engagement session for Craig and Claire. It was a crazy long session and it was pretty cold outside but they were good sports. I was wearing 2 shirts, 2 sweaters, 2 scarves and 1 glove. I shared the other one with ryan because I am nice. :)

First off, we think claire looks like Pam from the office!  Perhaps more when she is at certain angles but man, she looks enough like her to say something…hahah


The beginning of the day was pretty great. We took this awesome picture in this little icy land.

The ice looked cool but Ryan neglected to tell me that there was a sheet of plastic right under the snow that he noticed a few moments before. I stepped on it and went flying. Yet another glamorous shot of me.

We found this really awesome glass wall at the endo of the night. Since it was really dark outside by then we decided we would try out some cool things with flash.

We had some great outtakes along the way since I would say a good 70% of the night was spent laughing.

We found this AWESOME wall of road signs by one of the buildings downtown. They cut up all these road signs and screwed them into these walls in cool patterns…such a cool idea.

More experimenting with light with a bare flash, set at 105mm since we didn’t have an actual snoot but we could still get a similar effect.

I found this stairway while we were walking around. Everyone else walked right past it! Thus, I am the coolest. :)

The 14mm is sometimes very cool and sometimes weird. This time it was very cool.

At the end of the night, we went to the peabody hotel and at the top floor of the hotel was this completely awesome ballroom with these sweet sweet curtains.

That night we met up with our friend Nick at carrabbas and ate some fantastic food!

This ends our time in memphis! We had a great time and now have an 11 hour drive to austin ahead of us.

(I’m already behind in my blog posts because of a lack of internet so we actually just left austin yesterday. I’ve been working on the photos for the austin blog so make sure to check back. Austin was amazing and we have some crazy awesome pictures to prove it!)

Jessica & Nick {family} – Austin Texas » GAUPERphoto - [...] smelled like pee…real bad. Worth it? Yeah…I guess so. I mentioned in my post of craig and claire that the 14 can be super cool or really weird. I thought it would be fun to show the super [...]
