Austin & Lauren: MARRIED! | Louisville Wedding Photography

We have been waiting it seems like forever for this wedding!  After shooting their e-session, which you can see, HERE, you may remember why we were so excited for this day to finally get here.

Lauren is a gorgeous, funny, intelligent, generous, kind, sweet lady who could not be more self-less.  Even on her wedding day she was busy checking to make sure that everyone else was doing OK.  I love that about her spirit.  Their future kids will one day shine because of their gentle momma!  We just love being around you girl!

And Austin could not be a more perfect fit for Lauren.  He is the perfect image of a southern gentleman.  He is definitely all man…he likes his ball caps, his boots, and hunting.  But when it comes to boy-ish charm, good manners, and a big ol’ heart that beats to make Lauren happy….this guy’s got it all!  No wonder she fell in love with this guy!  A man who can kill snakes, hunt dinner, and buy her flowers and make her smile all at the same time….who doesn’t want that?!?!?

Anyway, we just adore you two and spending the day watching you two say your vows and commit forever to each other in front of all of your friends and family was truly our honor.  We wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else!  Hope you guys love these!

Pretty sure Austin thinks we are ridiculous….but hey…if it get’s this smile outta you, I’ll do it every time!

You’re a stud.  Period.

Meanwhile, Lauren could not have looked more beautiful.

Love your colors, love your smile, love you!

I’ve said it on this blog several times, and I’ll say it a million more times.  You simply can not beat the raw emotions that come out during a first look. I know, understand and can respect traditions, but when I see pics like this, that let you grab ahold of each other and just bask in this perfect moment, and I know you will cherish these pics for a lifetime….I say forget the traditions….get this REAL LIFE STUFF!

See…we have fun!

I just love you two together.

BOOM!  Lauren you are breath-taking.

Our favorite moments of the day was the split second that happened after we told you guys to kiss, hug, pose, etc.  You guys just had these great moments of laughter, sweetness, intimacy, and tenderness.  It was awesome!

I think I like this new tradition…guys carrying the bouquets, girl’s lookin’ tough…think it’ll catch on?!?!?


And simply because we couldn’t resist the light, or the setting at Wildwood, we squeezed in just a few more pics before the newest couple was introduced!  So glad we did!

One super awesome bridal party….you guys should rent out your friends to other couples getting married!

Jerry & Lori: MARRIED! | Kentucky Wedding Photographer

Unique, different, personal, special, FUN, and beautiful.  All words that I would freely use to describe Jerry and Lori’s perfect little farm wedding.  They went above and beyond to incorporate personal aspects that fit their personalities perfectly.  The amount of joy and laughter that oozed out of both them and their families was remarkable.  We loved being a part of their day….I hope they love the pics!


Love these hangers…I think they are so cool!

You know how you will here people talk about the bridal “glow?”  Well Lori definitely had that going on!  She was so stunning!

The raw emotions in a first look are my favorite part of my job.  These two couldn’t stop smiling.  Jerry couldn’t stop telling her how beautiful she was.  I think she truly took his breath away.

If one picture could sum up the entire day…I’d pick this one.  I love how they make each other smile.

Jerry, you have a GREAT smile!

Now this…is how you arrive in style for a wedding!


Some GORGEOUS detail provided by FLOURISH.  Love love love this set-up!

Lori and her dad’s first dance:  THE TWIST!  It was a great moment!  So much fun!

What a great way to cap off the night!

Yes…those are fireworks.  Yes they were awesome!

We had such a great time.  We are so glad you two asked us to be a part of your day!  We wish you guys a lifetime of happiness!

Bradley & Devin: ENGAGED! | Kentucky Engagement Photography

Deep breath…deeeeeeeeeeeeeep breath.  I can’t believe I’m about to say what I am about to say.  These are my sister’s ENGAGEMENT photos!  WHAT?!?!?!??!  How did this happen?  I’m pretty sure she is still just 6 years old and doing everything she can to get on my nerves!  She can’t be getting married….but alas….it’s the truth.

There are many times I sit in front of this screen with a blinking cursor trying to find just the right words to describe our couples; to make everyone understand how great their love is.  I struggle to find the perfect phrases to describe how gorgeous the bride is, and how perfect of a guy the groom is.  But this one…this one is particularly tough.  It’s incredibly difficult to fit into a few short sentences how great my sister is.  She has grown up (without my permission mind you) to become a beautiful, strong, independent, caring, thoughtful, sweet, generous, loving, compassionate woman who I am beyond blessed to call my sister, but more importantly my friend.  I have watched her come through trials stronger, and hit the highest of highs with the utmost grace and humility.  We weren’t always close, in fact, ask my parents we fought…A LOT!  But now I am happy to say that I don’t like to let a day go by without talking to her.  She challenges me, she pushes me, she encourages me and I am better for having her in my life.

I can’t believe I am watching her plan her wedding.  It is a day I, of course, always dreamed of for her, but was in no way emotionally ready for it to happen.  She will always be my baby sister, I will always be here for her with a waiting ear for our talks.  So, as much as it pains me to know you are growing up and taking off on your own, I simply couldn’t be more proud of who you are and what you are becoming.

Now, Bradley.  I realize I’m not super intimidating…but you better believe I got that girl’s back.  From what I know and have observed of you, you seem to love my sister passionately.  I really do believe that you are already exemplifying a great husband by always putter her needs ahead of your own.  You seem willing to do whatever it takes to lead her and one day your future family with compassion and conviction.  I hope you chase your dreams and push her to chase hers.  You make her a better woman.  You have shown her how to love unconditionally, and you lead that by example with your own great big heart!  I’m thankful she found you…but even though she would never admit it, she’s sensitive, she worries, she always looks for the best in people to a fault, and she NEEDS you to protect her.  It’s hard for me to hand her over to you….but I think you just might be the man for the job.  Good luck, kind sir….I love my sis…but you’ll have your hands full!

So, this may have been the biggest pressure I have ever put on myself for an engagement shoot!  They had to be just right.  Hope they love them!  (thank goodness I’m not shooting the wedding…I don’t think I’d survive!  The super talented J Grace Photography is handling that task!  Can’t wait to see what she produces!)

Meet Harper.  She is my sister’s baby!

I love that Harper has a great big smile on her face.

Love you both!  Can’t wait for the big day!

Alex & April: MARRIED! | Indiana Wedding Photography

Two grown kids who are passionately crazy in love with each other.  That’s April and Alex.  Their smiles were uncontainable that day.  As soon as we arrived to start the day, April bounced over to us and gave us a huge hug and couldn’t stop smiling.  It’s when that happens, that we know it’s going to be a good day.  We were right.  April makes Alex a better man.  He does things he would never do on his own when she is there to encourage him along.  Alex can make April laugh like no one else.  She loves the person she is when she is clinging to his arm.  They challenge each other, they help each other grow, they have fun together, and they are more than ready to start their life together.  As I post this, they are currently enjoying their honeymoon on a Disney Cruise.  I hope you guys keep the childlike faith and magic in your marriage til death do you part.  It’s something that we don’t see in every couple and it is incredibly refreshing to see it in yours!  Happy Wedding Day!

April, you’re gorgeous.  Make Alex tell you this every day.

Nothing like a love between a daddy and his baby girl.

Love this setting.

Love how you guys smiled through the whole ceremony!

Thank you Mr. Huber for planting these perfect little vineyards.  They make great grapes that leads to awesome wine and even better backdrops for pics!



Love the first dance.

Super sweet moments during the parent’s dances.

We had shot a ton of pics at the reception,and were about ready to leave,  but April had mentioned wanting to take a few more pics at sunset.  I’m so glad we were able to sneak away for 5 minutes and capture these shots.  They are probably some of my favorite from the whole day!

Charlie & Mindy: ENGAGED! | Kentucky Engagement Photography

We are so in love with this session!  We LOVE Charlie & Mindy.  We loved the location.  The light was spot on perfect.  The weather was fabulous.  It was all around perfection.  And we could not have been more happy to be sharing it with Mindy and Charlie.  Charlie is a brilliant, kind, compassionate, funny, sweet guy that adores Mindy.  And why shouldn’t he?she’s absolutely, breath-takingly gorgeous, intelligent, well-spoken, thoughtful, gernerous, self-less, and one of the best mom’s I know!  We are so glad to be a part of this amazing couple’s life and blessed to be able to capture this sweet moment in time.

Hope you guys love these!
