Jacob & Bryce: ENGAGED! | Louisville Engagement Photographer

We LOOOOVE Jacob and Bryce!  It has been a long time since we have laughed this much through an entire session.  Jacob and Bryce both had us laughing so hard that our stomach hurt when we left.  It also didn’t hurt that the light was perfect, and they both, were absolute naturals in front of the camera.  They just looked so happy and content.  We couldn’t possibly be happier with how this session came out.  I hope they love the pics even half as much as we do!

We can’t wait to put you guys in front of our camera again!  Can you please move your wedding date up?!?!

 

We also experienced a “first” on this shoot.  We have never had a videographer come with us on the engagement shoot.  I’ll admit we were a little apprehensive about it, but the guys from Mango Photography were AWESOME!  They were a blast to work with and got AMAZING stuff!  I am including the video teaser they did for Jacob and Bryce on here too, because I just think everyone should see it!  Great job guys!  Looking forward to working with Mango Photography again!

 

 

So now that you have seen Mango’s perspective, now to see ours:

 

I love how you two interact with each other.  You can totally feel the connection between you two just by how you look and hold each other.

I love how much Jacob loves to make Bryce smile and laugh.

Bryce’s laughter is so contagious!  We had so much fun!

As noted by the picture on the right, Bryce is quite the funny woman herself!  She was cracking jokes that had us all rolling!

Maybe my favorite set of 4 pictures together EVER!

Bryce, girl….YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!

I feel like you two kind of like each other, you should get married.  😉

The absolute contentment in this photo made it my favorite of the day.  I don’t know that we have ever photographed another couple who looked so sweetly in love as you guys do.  This image is love in it’s perfect vulnerable state.  And it’s my favorite.

Jacob proposed wearing his superman shirt!  So Bryce wanted us to be sure we revealed his true identity and that everyone knew the type of man she was marrying!

I seriously love you guys!  Can not wait to get together again soon!  It’s going to be even more awesome next time!

Thomas & Kelsie: MARRIED! | Elizabethtown Wedding Photography

I have been waiting for so long to post this blog!  We absolutely ADORE Thomas, Kelsie, and their families.  They are some of the most gracious, loving, generous, kind, big-hearted, and just downright nice people you will ever meet.  I knew I loved them from our very first meeting, and every time we are around them we just find new reasons to love them more.

This is a super long blog post, but buckle in!  We think this is one of our best yet!  Hope you guys enjoy!

 

I love all of the attention to detail they worked in all day.

If there was ever a bride who had that ‘glow’; it’s Kelsie.  She was smiling from ear to ear all day.  It was perfection.

Love the images here and the emotion that goes with them.  I love seeing how everyone reacts to the bride.  Notice her girl’s admiring from behind her.  Her mom finishing every last little detail.  Her dad fighting back tears.  Love this amazing group of people.  Everyone was so invested in this day.

These are actually a few images from a bridal session we did a few weeks before the wedding!  It took everything in me to hold these back until now!  But here they are!  Kelsie, you are stunning.  Your smile is beautiful and so contagious.  So glad we did this.

Seriously, how could you not love this girl?!

You are beautiful.

Thomas is a little more low-key kind of guy, but that makes him PERFECT for Kelsie.  I love his calm demeanor, and how he carries himself.  Gentlemen like Thomas are a rarity, and it was a joy to be around you.

You guys are blessed with amazing friendships.  I loved meeting all of them!

I love you two together.  You are just…..right.  Seeing you two, makes everyone else smile.

The beautiful Olmstead.  Always a favorite to shoot at, but with Thomas and Kelsie’s personal touch applied, it was as good as it gets!

Thomas and Kelsie took lessons for their first dance!  It paid off in a big way!

Best band in Louisville!  The Louisville Crashers!  Check them out!

This was such a FUN reception!  I have proof!

Raquel,
After looking online for hours at photographer’s websites Kelsie said your wedding photographs were “clear and happy” and that is what she liked! Upon meeting with you and talking we knew you were the right choice! Thank you for doing such a great job captivating what an awesome day their wedding was! I think you achieved the “clear and happy” Kelsie was looking for!
Thanks so much for your talent as an outstanding wedding photographer!

Grant & Brittany: MARRIED! | Kentucky Wedding Photography

We have been waiting FOREVER for this wedding.  Brittany and Grant were one of our most favorite engagement sessions we had ever shot, and it just felt like their wedding couldn’t get here soon enough.  To start, they are RIDICULOUSLY photogenic.  I really don’t know that I have ever seen two people who just “fit” together more perfectly.  But beyond that, and more importantly, we just LOVE being around these two.  They smile great big smiles, they laugh loudly, and they love passionately.  Every one of their friends were so excited to be a part of their day.  And why wouldn’t they?  It was a beautiful celebration for two amazingly beautiful people!  I really could talk about them all day, but I know you guys aren’t here to read, but to see some of these GORGEOUS pics…so I’ll shut up and you can start scrolling!

Brittany did a “first look” with her dad.  Needless to say there were tears all around.  For us too!  Seriously one of the sweetest moments I have ever been able to witness!

Brittany, I could totally say after every picture how stunningly beautiful you are.  You are absolutely breath-taking.  And because I think you may get tired of hearing me say it after every image, I won’t.  But know I’m thinking it, K?  😉

I love the first look.  The first moment a bride and groom see each other on their wedding day is the most perfect moment.  Always my favorite time of the day.

Poor Brittany was so overcome with emotion all day.  I loved that she was so emotionally attached to every second of her day.  But the moment she got to wrap her arms around Grant…it was all better for the rest of the day.

Seriously, how unbelievable gorgeous are these two?!?!?

Love you guys!

Grant does the most adorable thing ever when you take his picture.  He giggles.  It’s AWESOME!  He says his momma always told him to laugh and it would guarantee that it would be a natural, real smile.  She was right.  Grant, keep giggling, because you take the best pictures!

Seriously, can we borrow your guy’s friends?!?!  We had so much fun hanging out with them.  We would like to personally rent them out to be our friends.  And maybe make them honorary bridesmaid’s and groomsmen at every wedding we shoot!

I love your guy’s silliness!

SO MUCH FUN!!!

Ryan & Rachel: MARRIED! | Louisville Wedding Photographers

Rain or shine, nothing was going to dampen the day for these two.  Rachel and Ryan had a beautiful day celebrating their wedding with their closest friends and family, and we were lucky enough to be invited to document it.  We loved every minute that we were able to watch this couple interact with each other and their guests.  The smiles, the laughter, the hugs, the tears and all of the other emotions made this day one to be remembered forever!

 

Such a fun little set-up at the salon!

Rachel, you’re beautiful.

I loved this moment when Rachel saw her dad for the first time.  She may be marrying a new man, but this Daddy’s girl will always have a place in her heart for the first man she ever loved.

Love when couples do the first look!  Such sweet moments.

My favorite quote of the day:

Rachel: Do I look like what you expected?

Ryan: Better.

Yup…these two know how to love each other.

I love your smile Ryan.

HOT TAMALES!

Besties!

YAY!  You’re married!

The sun finally came out right before the reception, so we couldn’t resist a fun little mini session.  These two NAILED it!

The rest of the night was filled with all kinds of hilarious shenanigans!   We loved hanging out with your family and friends!

Michael & Merissa: MARRIED! | Louisville Wedding Photography

We simply could not have asked for a better wedding to kick off our 2013 wedding year!  Merissa and Michael had a beautiful day and we were so blessed to be able to be the ones chosen to capture it.  Merissa was absolutely stunning.  She seriously looked like she had been ripped right from the pages of a magazine.  I really feel bad even trying to describe her, because words won’t even come close.  And if her flawless good looks didn’t make you jealous enough, she also happens to be one of the sweetest, kindest, compassionate, funny, loving and generous people we know.  I don’t think she has a single flaw.  What’s even better than that?  Her husband.  Michael has never met a stranger and would give the shirt off of his back to anyone that needed it without even asking why.  Honestly, he is the perfect gentleman in every aspect of the word.  Sometimes I love to just stand back and listen to what the bride and groom’s family and friends say about them on their wedding day when they think no one else is listening.  The things I heard about Michael (and Merissa too) almost brought me to tears.  They, on their own, are amazing people.  But when God put these two together…He must have had some pretty big world-changing plans in mind.  Because these two, together, are remarkable.  They make each other laugh, they challenge each other, they put one another’s needs ahead of their own, and live out a beautiful, sacrificial, trusting, sweet, considerate and perfect kind of love.  We love you guys.  And we know that these pictures can’t even begin to come close to showing off how AWESOME your day is, we hope they at least allow you to re-live it again, and smile.

 

You know it’s going to be a great day when you walk in and the bride is already glowing like this!

Such sweet handkerchiefs that Merissa had ordered for her parents.  Are you crying yet?  Because I know we were!

Toms shoes on your wedding day?  Yes, please!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE her smile!

The first look…always a favorite moment!

I seriously love you two together.

Their wedding party…in case you were wondering…Yeah, they’re awesome too!

Michael, you’re a stud.

I love the moment when a daddy looks at his little girl and sees her as he is about to give her away.  So much emotion.  I can’t imagine the thoughts racing through his head in this moment.

BOOOOOOOOOM!

We loved all of their details!  The Ice House was such a great venue!

The first dance!

Ok…we shoot weddings.  A lot of weddings.  But I have never cried at a father-daughter dance like I did this one.  There is no way pictures could tell the story.  It was beautiful   I feel sorry for everyone who wasn’t there to see it!

Then we were off to party the rest of the night away!
