Beau & Marissa: ENGAGED! | Louisville Engagement Photography

So excited to put up our first engagement session of the year!  We couldn’t be more excited either to show off Marissa and Beau.  They were the perfect kick off to our year.

First they are ridiculously beautiful people, but to add to that they are funny, kind, considerate, silly, and sweet.  Seriously these two are perfect together and a photographer’s dream in front of the camera!  Thanks guys for hanging out with me for a bit, (and showing off your perfect four-legged friends too!)


Rob & Elizabeth: MARRIED! | Louisville Wedding Photography

When the bride is wearing a stunning soft pink dress with fabulous pink dancing shoes…AND she works for Disney…you just know this is going to be an AMAZING wedding!  It didn’t dissapoint either!

We actually didn’t have the chance to meet Elizabeth and Rob before their big day because the both live in Florida.  Sometimes, that makes me a little nervous for how things will go, but honestly, Elizabeth and Rob could not possibly be any more incredible.  They are funny, flexible, considerate, kind, gorgeous, sweet people.  It is evident by their HUGE bridal party.  I always think that is such a cool testament to how you live your life.  When you have that many family and friends excited to be a part of your special day, its pretty incredible.

So many awesome things about this day.  To start…a subtle pink wedding gown?!?!  YES PLEASE!

Seriously, how unbelievably beautiful is Elizabeth?!  Despite the fact that it was FREEZING outside, Elizabeth toughed it out for a few pics that we hope she thinks was worth it!

The first look.  Always.  Easily my favorite moment of the day.  We love, love LOVE seeing the couples first reactions and sweet moments.

You guys make a crazy adorable couple!  Although, I’m sure you already know that!

Look out!  Smokin’ hot man in a tux!  But what makes Rob even more amazing than his phenominal good looks?  The fact that he is SUCH a nice guy.  He loves to smile.  And I can’t tell you how many times we heard throughout the day about how good of a friend he is.  Loyal, funny, caring, and good looking…WELL DONE ELIZABETH!

Love shooting at Caldwell Chapel.  Always makes a beautiful backdrop!

Some silliness with boys!

This was our first time shooting at the Muhammed Ali Center.  It was AWSOME!  The venue in itself is such a cool place.  I can’t wait to go back there and just check it out, but the ballroom where Elizabeth and Rob had their reception was to die for!  They had it decorated beautifully, and the picturesque backdrop window views of the city just put it over the top!  Seriously one of the most gorgeous receptions we have EVER attended!

The day was filled with so many sweet memories for everyone.  But this one was pretty great!  Elizabeth’s cousins got together and practiced without her knowing and sang to her, “You Are So Beautiful” at the reception and KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK!

The toasts were filled with so much laughter, thought and good memories.  Rob’s best man told hilarious stories of Rob, but ended it by proving his point that Rob will forever be determined to be the best possible husband he can be to Elizabeth.  Then, Mike, Elizabeth’s dad got up and brought the whole room to tears with his sweet toast.  Finally we were back in stitches again when Elizabeth’s sisters got up and sang her their own version of “I’ve Got Friends, In Low Places.”  It was all so perfect!

Thank you guys so much for allowing us to be a small part of such an incredible day.  We wish you both a lifetime of happiness, fun and love.  (And we’ll be sure to say hi next time we’re at Disney!)

Zack & Jessica: ENGAGED! | Louisville Engagement Photography

These two are perfect!  Seriously, they laughed, smiled, hugged, kissed, snuggled, and at least pretended to have fun with us despite it being the coldest day of the year so far.  Zack is a tall, handsome, funny, intelligent guy who treats Jessica like a queen.  Jessica is not only GORGEOUS, but seriously one of the sweetest girls ever.  She’s a nurse and actually works with Elizabeth occasionally.  Nurses are always the most giving and selfless people, and it just shows through with Jessica and Zack.  We had so much fun hanging out with them and getting to know a little more about them and their story!  We can’t wait until their May wedding!

Noah & Brittney: MARRIED! | Louisville Wedding Photography

I’m just going to go ahead and say it.  It simply does not get better anywhere in the world than Kentucky in the Fall.  It is simply beautiful.  The light, the colors…all of it…perfection.  While I agree that photographing on a beach is pretty great, I’ll take my beautiful Kentucky any day.  (Although if you would like for us to accompany you to the beach for some gorgeous photos…we certainly wouldn’t complain!)


Noah and Brittney, you guys made this day all the more perfect.  With your great big smiles, your non-stop laughter, your sweet cuddliness, and your perfect family and friends, we simply were just smitten.  We had such a blast being a part of your day!  We definitely created memories we will never forget from your wedding.  I hope you guys took the time to soak it all in and savor every moment that was your wedding day!  If not, hopefully these pics will jog your very recent memory and you’ll look at them and smile!


Who doesn’t love special hand-made touches and cowboy boots?

Little Ms. Lexi was so great during mom and dad’s wedding day!  And seriously?  Could she be any cuter?!?!

Brittney, please smile more.  Girl, your smile lights up the world!  Smile big, smile confidently and know you are GORGEOUS!

I love laughing pictures.  It just shows the happiness that was in that moment!

Oh Kentucky…how I love you in the fall.

The first look….

Noah could not take his eyes off of his gorgeous bride.

I love how easily you two make each other smile.

So…funny story.  We are moving right along, grabbing some gorgeous pics in the perfect light and perfect color of the trees behind us.  Then we start hearing this low rumble that is getting closer and closer and louder and louder.  We turn to see, about 20 feet away from us, a giant bulldozer plowing through the trees!  After he saw us, and we picked ourselves up from heart-attacks and laughter, he shut it down and allowed us to finish our portraits.  But whew!  Glad we got out there when we did and he didn’t cut our trees down!

Probably my favorite from the day.  You should get this in a canvas and hang it in your house.  K?  K!

Always have this much fun together.  Always.

Noah, you have the BEST smile.  I’m pretty sure that is why Brittney fell in love with you.  I love how easily it comes too.  Stay happy, stay handsome, stay awesome!

Noah’s guys were a trip!  I asked them to pose with their suspenders.  What I got was a mini model photo-shoot.  Work it guys!

Daddy and his sweet little princess!

Probably one of the most attractive bridal parties ever!

Their ceremony was filled with love, laughter, and Jesus.  Kind of a perfect start to exactly how the rest of their marriage should go.

It’s official!

Carli & Stephen: ENGAGED! | Downtown Louisville Engagement Photography

This has to be without a doubt the most fun session we have shot to date!  Carli and Stephen seriously brought their “A” games and were ten kinds of fantastic!

Carli is a GORGEOUS girl who is as funny as she is beautiful.  She is creative and fun.  She loves to laugh, make jokes and lives life to its fullest.  We’re so blessed to know her, her family, and to be her photographer.  Girl…YOU ROCK!

Stephen is an incredible guy.  One of those guys that you don’t even think exists anymore.  He is a gentleman to the core, handsome, intelligent, talented and funny.  Any girl would be lucky to have him…Carli hit the jackpot!  His parents sure raised him right.

Together, these two are perfection.  They make each other laugh, can’t stop smiling around each other and compliment one another perfectly.  Carli brings out the best side of Stephen and Stephen make Carli a better woman.  We love these two together.  We REALLY LOOOOOVE their pictures.  We love them!  Thanks for letting us be a part of something so special!


Granted, being a big UK fan myself, it was hard to start the session here…but for Carli and Stephen I swallowed my pride and shot it anyway.  And gosh darn it, even with all that red in the pics, they still turned out pretty great!

Seriously, the way you two make each other laugh, IT’S THE BEST!

Carli, girl…you’re a knock-out.

Don’t you just want to hang out with them?

A quick outfit change and a side alley…YES PLEASE!

Guess what day they are getting married?!?!  🙂

Thankful for construction on Whiskey Row in Louisville.  It makes for a great back-drop.

Allow me to re-introduce you to my favorite spot in downtown Louisville to shoot.  It pretty smelly, beat up, and a little funky, but it has gorgeous light and makes for BEAUTIFUL photographs.  Glad Stephen and Carli were up for the challenge!

Told you Stephen was talented.  Pretty sure this pic is exactly how Stephen won Carli over.  🙂

One of my favorites from the whole session.

Not only can Stephen play the guitar, but the banjo too!  How freakin’ cool is that?!?!  And he let Carli pick a little too on it.

Or maybe the pic on the left is my favorite of the night….

Or one of these….oh I can’t pick!

All Carli’s idea….All FABULOUS!

Then things got CRAY-CRAY!


Love, love LOOOOOVE

You guys are awesome.
