It was such a treat to take these engagement photos for one of my best friends in the world (since sixth grade!). Mary and Austin are both such easy-going people that we thought it would be fun to do something a little more formal for their engagement photos. We borrowed a (blue!) Claire Pettibone gown from The Dress Theory that fit Mary like a glove, put Austin in a blue suit, and headed to their wedding venue in East Nashville, Riverwood Mansion. It rained all day but it didn't matter, because the interior of the mansion is a stunner with it's patinaed walls and moody window light (there even happened to be a blue and gold wall that matched the dress!). I just adore these two and hope I'm able to see through my happy tears to capture their wedding day in October!
