Meet Sessen and Jordan. For those Memphians who hang at Avenue, you know this duo. In fact, you probably knew them before they were a duo. I met Sessen in passing at Avenue Coffee. Immediately I knew she was such a encouraging and high-spirited personality. In full 901 fashion, I also met Jordan at Avenue. We had some pretty nerdy camera gear chats! Seriously, when I found out these two were dating, it was a fo’sho thing.
And now!!! – After hanging out for a whole evening, it’s fo’sho a FO’SHO thing. They compliment each other beautifully. I can see how comfortable and joyful they make each other. It’s evident through even the photos that they feel comfortable to be themselves together. I mean, long story short, Jordan and Sessen killed their shoot. I’m honored they chose me to capture this season of life- all the excitement, new love, and anticipation. The wedding is going to be a freakin’ awesome. Enough chat, just scroll!
And for your own humor. Or maybe for ours… I’ve included the behind-the-scenes below! OFFICIALLY, y’all are the freakin’ best, Sessen and Jordan. Let’s see what we can manage to pull off come wedding day! Haha
This is Abi. She’s a spunky 19 year old living in Tennessee. Abi studies cello at University of Memphis. I’m so excited to attend the one of the concerts her orchestra preforms! I asked Abi what women have impacted or empowered her in her life and how they did that. “My old cello teacher, Hannah, is the best person in the entire world. She is so honest. She wanted me not only to be a better cellist, but a better person. She seamlessly tied in cello with life; how I was suppose to treat people and handle situations. Another would be Jill. She’s accepted me into her family. Lets me be imperfect but also pushes me to grow at the same time. She feeds me, which is a huge love language!” Last year Abi had the opportunity to visit her father’s family in Germany. She spent time in the homes of her aunts and uncles with cousins and friends. “My great aunt in Germany really impacted me. She taught me so much about hospitality and love even when you can’t speak the same language.”
I also asked Abi what it meant to be empowered by others for her? “When people drop the competitiveness. When I feel someone being competitive it makes me sad, because they are losing the opportunity for community. It develops that “I have to better then you.” instead of sharing and learning from each other. Its really empowering for me when other people come together within the same art. ”
