Tori & Ryan Ostrander | Intimate Wedding at Halle Plantations | Memphis Tennessee Portrait & Wedding Photographer

"I fell in love the way you fall asleep;

slowly, and then all at once." - John Green

When I first met Tori, I knew we were going to hit it off 100%. We sat at Starbucks and talked about the wedding and life for over two hours. I was so excited to have her as a bride! When I met Ryan at their engagement session, I immediately knew why they are soulmates. They fit together like perfect puzzle pieces. They are SO goofy and were willing to do all the crazy things I had them do and made their session super fun. It made me even more excited for the wedding!

The week of the wedding I could tell Tori was getting nervous because the weather forecast was showing rain all day on their wedding day. I reassured her that no matter what, we were going to get amazing photos and they were going to have the best day ever! I woke up to a call from one of Tori's bridesmaids the morning of the wedding. The rain had been at it all night long, which completely messed up the friend's land where they were having the wedding. Mud and weddings don't mix! So with a last minute venue change and uncooperative weather, the day was already pretty hectic. 

Despite a few things not turning out the way they planned, so many things went RIGHT. Like this beautiful celebration of these two amazing people coming together and forming a whole new family! Family and friends came together and celebrated this wonderful new beginning and had a blast and the photos clearly show it! I am so blessed to have met Tori and been able to be there to capture their special day! Hope you guys enjoy some highlights from their big day!
