Lexington and Eastern Kentucky wedding photography
We like to describe our photography as a little bit of everything. Each client is unique and we don't like to fit our clients into boxes. Sometimes we embrace a sunny, brightly colored day and a bride and groom with rosey sun-burnt cheeks. Sometimes we cherish the overcast, rainy wedding days with soft light and wet hair. We love dogs, coffee shops, bars and tattoos. We love woods, fields, rivers, cliffs and waiting until the stars come out. We love smoke bombs, rooftops, downtown murals and old VW Vanagans. We'll even cook some pizza or bake some cookies with you at home and photograph the mess. Basically, you decide what your photos look like. We just capture those little details that make you two, you.
We are based in central and Eastern Kentucky, specifically the Red River Gorge area. We frequent the Lexington and Louisville areas often and even include them with Cincinnati in our travel allotment.
We'd love to answer any questions you may have about our classic, timeless and free-spirited photography style. We'd love to describe what that means. We can't wait to hear about your ceremony and reception details or even your elopement plans: the traditional and the non-traditional.
Please contact us for full wedding portfolios and we will talk over coffee about our favorite things.

\\ words from christine.
I'm so glad you found us. I'm the worst at advertising and marketing and social media... so really, I'm really glad you found us!
I have photographed weddings since 2010. I started out as a second shooter and somehow ended up owning and operating a full time business photographing people like you. The business part is not my forte. It is not uncommon that I talk brides into booking less hours, but it is often the case that I lose track of time and stay longer than planned. I'm terrible with names but I get along with every body. I'm most often praised for how I handle large group portraits, stay relatively incognito and am seemingly everywhere at once.
My goal, as your wedding photographer, is to represent you and your event in it's truest form. I hope to interfere as little as possible, however I love taking portions of the day to stretch my creative muscles. I love when we can take short portrait sessions throughout the day, and capture the unexpected moments outside of a timeline. And I agree with your parents, the traditional portraits are important, too.
We encourage an engagement session, so you can get acquainted with our workflow, and you also get portraits in everyday attire in a location of your choice. But if you're out of town, and we can't make a consultation happen, we are praised for making our couples comfortable even without having met them prior to the wedding.
From the moment you book our services, I will be there to answer questions about timelines, lighting, suggested vendors and ways to make the planning a little easier. We work with you up until the day of, making sure we have a plan for the best images and most fluid day. We can also stand back and let the timelines go to the wayside and embrace the unpredictable and spontaneous. Honestly, that's when the magic happens.
We shoot to deliver images between 4-6 weeks, with a blog to showcase our favorites and an online gallery to share with friends and family. If you opt for the USB add-on, we'll treat you to some prints or trinkets in a lovely little keepsake box to make sure you know we loved working with you. Which, I can't wait to do.
Deposits have been placed for the following wedding dates, therefore we are not available.
