These guys have since had a beautiful little girl, but I was going over my 2016 portfolio and just had to share these images. Mariah & Aaron were so wonderful and they have a fantastic little family. They took me down a fall foliage filled trail along some foothills as the sun sunk below the treetops.Read More
Christi & Jessica contacted me a little over a year ago, for their Kentucky wedding plans. I was so excited to be apart of their big day, and then they had an unexpected move to Northern Indiana. While the news was super sad, I wished them all the best of luck. Then at the end of last year, they contacted me with the most wonderful news. They were expecting to add an addition to their family and wanted maternity portraits up north!
I love to travel, especially to new places. Christi grew up in this magical place on Lake Michigan that would make you believe you were on the beach and on the edge of the world. When she suggested we take the portraits there, I immediately agreed. And despite a rainy forecast all weekend, we got a short break from the weather to enjoy this sandy oasis.
Noah's Event Louisville Wedding
Renee & Cody met me super early for their engagement session to wander through the woods, watch the deer, and then hang amongst the murals in the distillery district of Lexington. I was so excited for their wedding after I became so taken by these two. Renee made her own Moss Boxes with wood from her Parents house. They are so impressive! Renee also forewarned me that she had an epic wedding gift for Cody. That was just the Cherry on top.
I won't ruin the surprise, you'll have to check out the photos below to see what her gift was. Thank you to Renee & Cody for being gracious and accommodating throughout the day. They had the most contagiously high spirits and it makes our hearts so warm.Read More
This wedding was such an adventure. Larissa got ready at a gorgeous farm, met Casey under a shade tree. They got married along the Lost River under a patch of gorgeous trees. They wrapped up their celebration in the cave!
When we met Larissa & Casey we had a designed shoot with Tweed & Tin, with a bohemian tent in the snow at Cherokee Park. It was only fitting that their wedding day was a perfect fall day spent in a cave! Oh just wait until you see all the hard work these two put into their reception. The centerpieces were quartz, salts and stones, with rock candy favors. The cake was a giant Cinnabon, the food was great, the videographer was super talented and the Dj was fantastic. Special Thanks to a wonderful wedding coordinator. Contact me for this power team <3Read More
Jessica & Jason has one of my favorite engagement sessions. We explored Joe Ley Antiques and 21c Hotel. That being said, I was super excited about their wedding and it did not disappoint. They had origami cranes as a backdrop to their ceremony on a beautiful day in October. Their reception was the perfect setting for a group dance to Bohemian Rhapsody. They remade the painting of Rene Magritte's Lovers II and exited to sparklers. I loved the personal touches and the amount of fun had all day and night. Congratulations to these two for a wedding to remember <3Read More
We arrived for Laura & Anthony's wedding day at a gorgeous Airbnb in downtown Louisville. The hosts were so gracious and accommodating. Laura got into her stunning 2 piece gown and met her husband to be in the front yard. We loved roaming around the property for portraits.
We then headed downtown to the BBC Bourbon Barrel Loft where an intimate and tear filled ceremony started off a night of dancing, smiling and celebrating Laura & Anthony. The food was delicious, the BBC Loft was great hosts and we adored each and every time these two lovebirds hit the dance floor. We knew they were making the move to Conneticut after their wedding so it was a bitter sweet good bye to Kentucky. I think Kentucky will miss them, but we know these two have all the love they need to make Connecticut just as wonderful.
We have never been so wet. Despite a great big old Osage tree, Jessica & Clint got soaked for their first look. They were such good sports and didn't let the rain damper any spirits. They read rain spotted letters before finally seeing each other, and then we did our best to avoid the rain. Alas, we embraced the rainfall and found a great "village" to wrap up our portraits.
Then we got to see the beautiful space that is Terrapin Hill. The ethereal woodland Chapel stage where Jessica & Clint would marry, the open reception area, the bomb fires, the live music and the craft pizza made for a great night to be apart of. Even though our sunset portraits were overcast, and our lanterns were dappled in rain, every moment was full of rich tones, laughter and love. We would do this wet cold day over and over again.
I need to warn you as to what you're about to see. You're about to see some dainty shoes, and glamorous dresses on some women who did some push ups while drinking mimosas. You're about to see lots of wonderful people come from a very far distance to see one particularly beautiful mimosa drinking, push-up mastering woman with #weddingarms we could all envy, marry the sweetest, handsomest gentleman who can dance and sing backstreet boys and put you to shame. You're gonna see a dance floor that gave us a first time applause for our side dancing that only few notice. You're gonna see the most wondrous collection of trinkets and treasure, expertly designed by Tweed & Tin, and most elegantly complimenting a treasure of personality by those surrounding Jessica & Greg. You're gonna see the coolest Photo Booth, a flowery sunset, some grungy buildings, lots of bourbon and a Hawaiian hog roast. Last but not least, you're gonna see atleast a million smiles.Read More
We never know what to expect when couples opt to not do engagement photos. But Katie and Evan were full of good surprises. They were classy and fun. They could strike a GQ pose and then laugh a full body laugh. Their affection and intimacy was contagious and we swooned over their first dance, Evan's many performances and even their Game of Thrones groom's cake. We loved listening to Evan sing Adam Sandler's "I wanna grow old with you" to Katie and will eagerly wait for that to be topped.Read More
Hannah has been a friend since Middle School. She introduced me to Blink 182, tattoos and not worrying about what kind of person, others thought I should be. She's been such as strong influence in my life, for the best. We may not have stayed close, but we've always picked up where we left off.
It goes with out saying we met at Rooster Brewery for the engagement. In part to make catching up our first priority, (and maybe for a little liquid courage.) In fact, the hanging out lasted a little longer than I intended and I completely missed the golden hour I was aiming for. When we started the portraits, it was basically dusk in downtown Paris and turned to nighttime before we knew it.
It was perfect. Cause Hannah & Jake confessed they weren't excited about the average frolicking at sunset in flowered fields or woods-kind-of-portraits. They were night owls. They loved this bar, this small town and the end of the day. So the focus of our session was their smiles, their goofing off, and their ability to not take life too seriously. Congrats friends, can't wait for go-carts and mountains in October <3Read More
