I have grown quite attached to these two. I had the honor of not only photographing their engagement, but also their ceremony in Seattle Washington. They even met my mom (That's a big step.) It's clients like these two that make my job the best job in the world. They had a beautiful reception to celebrate their marriage at the Grand Reserve in Lexington, Ky and it was a glorious celebration of two beautiful souls.Read More
These guys aren't engaged, they just like exploring. And each other.Read More
Smiles and warm feelings....I believe I will let the photos tell this Love Story.Read More
Annastasia and Travis have been so fun from day one. They chose January for their engagement session and we traipsed around Floyd's Fork outside Louisville. For their wedding day, we got to explore Cherokee Park in the cold of December and it was a real winter Wonderland.
I have to give props to Anna and Travis for the best timeline at a wedding. After they got married and took some pictures, they went to the Hilltop tavern and celebrated with some friends before their reception. I think we get wrapped up in scheduling all the "traditional things" during our wedding day, and we forget to plan the celebration.Read More
It's getting harder and harder to keep these blogs short. I feel so blessed with my clients. Not only did Laura & Sean offer to drive around Louisville with us, they were equally enthusiastic about traveling to several beautiful places for photos. Not to mention, the first location was where Sean proposed to Laura. We ended the night with a shot under their street sign, and boy does that make it special. It's such a good feeling to be apart of these guys beautiful story, I can't brag on them enough. Sorry I'm not sorry for all the photos.Read More
Brittany & Jason have really figured out love. It is a soft gentle soulful love fueled by an adventurous heart. Their engagement session was in a dreamy abandoned greenhouse. On their wedding day, in gown and suit, Brittany & Jason ventured to the High Bridge Park and climbed up to the top. With an overcast sky, these two beautiful people stood at the top of the world.
By the way, this is the best way to win me over.Read More
Allison & Tyler contacted me a few months ago. They are the husband and wife team at Happy Camper Films. They asked if I knew of anyone with an RV they could borrow for a shoot. It just so happened that I was in the market for a vintage RV to remodel and low and behold it would make the perfect little home for these happy little campers. Allison & Tyler gave my 1978 Georgia Boy Cruise Air some much needed love and I had so much fun hanging out with them, carving pumpkins and building the most impressive campfire.
Happy First Anniversary Allison & Tyler!Read More
When we met Heather & Jess at a A Cup of Commonwealth in Lexington, Ky, we were instant friends. We talked over coffee about dusty bookstores and Seattle, Washington. I found Poor Richard's Attic by a mere chance google search and contacted the owners to find more information. Turns out, Frankfort, Kentucky would be the perfect spot with the perfect piles of dusty books for the perfect duo that is Heather & Jess.
A little info on Heather and Jess: They are adopting a little boy. They have started a blog and if they hadn't already won our hearts from the moment we met them, they have certainly won us over in the process of getting to know them. Enjoy their photos, their smiles, their laughs and their absolutely overwhelming love. I know I have.Read More
It's not everyday, that a couple chooses to do a destination wedding for the entire group in Frankfort, KY. Sophie & Justin did just that. Not a single soul is from Kentucky, but guests came from Spain, San Francisco, Chicago and Pittsburgh and more to watch these two cool cats get hitched. There was lots of celebration and lots of dancing as The Brain Cloud filled the night air with catchy tunes. Special thanks to Buffalo Trace Distillery for being such wonderful hosts.Read More
Back in July, Brandi and I trucked all the way to New Ulm, Minnesota to join a few others for a Karrah Kobus Photography workshop. Karrah was wonderful and our models were gorgeous. We camped out with the mosquitoes and hiked to some areas just at the golden hour. I've included a few photos of Karrah in action.Read More
Ashlyn & Jonathan are the sweetest souls. Jonathan was in Brazil when we met Ashlyn. His family is doing missionary work in the area. Their quaint little wedding at the Hunt-Morgan House in Lexington, Ky was perfect and so fitting for this heart filled family.Read More
Sarah & Michael could not have better timing. They had their first look and portraits before the ceremony. We waltzed around Gratz Park while watching another wedding set up on the grounds. Then we returned to the Bodley Bullock House for the Ceremony. It was not five minutes after the kiss and quick family portraits that it started to pour. But It would not have mattered if they had been rained on, these guys would have radiated.Read More
Rachel & Johnny were one of our favorite engagement sessions. We met them at Centre College and they ran around their college campus with us. They were so fun, and up for anything. We even got them to lay down on a dusty wooden floor while we shot from above. Needless to say, their wedding day was equally fun. From the start of our day, running in the fields to performances and chants at the end of the night. These guys have figured out their secret to happiness: and it's always have fun.Read More
We have been so busy that we are REALLY behind on our blogs. We met with Brittany and Jason in May for their engagement session, and have just been nonstop ever since. They both graduated from UK so the first stop was in front of the wildcat statue, where tradition is you have to ride it drunk sometime before you graduate ( I might have made that part up). We then went on to an abandoned distillery, and some old forgotten greenhouses. It was a really great session for us, and so laid back! We can't for their wedding this October!Read More
Brittany had a bridal session in the same location she was married a year before. It's sad to see bulldozers in such a place but she is still radiant.Read More
What happens when you get married in the Cayman Islands and not everyone can make it? You rent a ballroom at the Hyatt in downtown Louisville for a reception.
Trust me, this was one of the most beautiful receptions we've been too. Everything was amazing. The decorations, the lighting, the food, and the people were so great. It really was amazing.
We got to play with the cutest baby, with the best head of hair I've ever seen before everyone got there for cocktail hour, experience an Indian classical dance ( I could be wrong about that, I'm not sure what it's called), and even steal away the bride and groom at the end of the night for some last minute photos.Read More
Meet Manda & Jason. They spend their time taking walks in the lovely historic downtown area of Lexington. It only seemed appropriate I follow them as they walked to the court house to meet with family and get married. It was a beautiful warm day, we couldn't have asked for a better afternoon spent.
Special thanks to Rebecca Powell Photography for referring these lovely two our way.Read More
