Meet Brittany & Ryan who were married this summer in Jeffersonville, IN and celebrated their reception on the grounds of the historic Churchill Downs at the Kentucky Derby Museum. Weddings at the museum are perfectly themed with red roses and table centerpieces featuring past Derby winners, which is exactly why Brittany and Ryan's reception was so perfect. Before entering the reception we had fun with the bridal party snapping photos in front of the Barbaro statue and in the paddock garden adjacent to the museum. After a delicious dinner prepared by Silver Spoon Catering, the reception party was kicked off by Sounds Unlimited Productions announcing the cake cutting, followed by an entertaining speech by Ryan's brother and a heartfelt speech by Brittany's sister. The dance floor was packed with kids, friends and family, and sorority sisters helping the couple to celebrate their new marriage. Towards the end we sneaked outside for a quick photo featuring the Churchill Downs sign that was illuminated. Thanks Brittany and Ryan for sharing your special day with me and I am so glad that I was chosen to be your Louisville wedding photographer. Best Wishes.
Meet Brooke and Zach. They chose the beautiful Kentucky Center for the Arts as their venue. It was a beautiful day filled with friends and family simply sharing in the happiness of the couple. The groom gave the bride the most thoughtful gift, a scrapbook stuffed with memorabilia from their life together. It was massive. He liked his gift as well, a special jersey that Brooke had framed. Brooke and her family did most of the decor themselves. Her mother even made the cake, which made it very special. The centerpieces were fish bowls with blue Bettas swimming inside. At the end of the evening I got to take one home. I named him "Edit" and he sits on my desk to motivate me. It was a fantastic evening of wonderful formal dances, a touching letter read by Brooke to her dad, heartfelt speeches, and a joyous sparkler send off. It was such a pleasure spending the day with these two and I wish them lots of happiness. Thanks for choosing me to be your Louisville wedding photographer :)
Brooke had requested to do a photo right before the wedding where she could have a moment with Zach without them seeing each other. This brick wall was just what we needed. I love this photo here because she is soooo excited.
Meet Adam and Aubrey. These two live in Lexington and are getting married this October at their family's home in Prospect. I was super excited to travel to Lexington for their engagement session so I could photograph somewhere different than my typical go to spots. Adam is a golfer and arranged for us to have use of golf carts at a near by golf course to explore. It took me a few to get the hang of driving it, but it was lots of fun. We made a stop at what seemed to be a secret garden in downtown Lexington. Even though we were unable to enter we did snap a few around the grounds. To end the evening we stopped at Triangle Park to capture some romantic pictures. I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Lexington and I am looking forward to what will be an incredible wedding this fall. Below are a few of my favorites from the day!! Thanks Adam and Aubrey for choosing my to be your Louisville wedding photographer.
Alison and Chad are going to be wed this October at the Oxmoor Country Club. Recently we spent the evening walking around the Louisville Waterfront taking their engagement photos. We began on the Belvedere stopping at the water fountain, then made our way down towards the Great Lawn, stopped for a few by Slugger Field, and then hopped across the river with our final stop at the Falls of Ohio. These two were such good sports when I suggested that we should walk down towards the riverbeds, not realizing that the water was really high that day. They were up for anything and it made the shoot lots of fun. I look forward to their wedding and so glad they chose me to be their Louisville wedding photographer!!!! Here are a few of my favorites from the day.
Meet Jennifer and Hollis Hollis ;) otherwise known as Chris. It was a steamy hot July summer day for their incredible wedding at The Galt House. What made this wedding so wonderful was the couples' fun loving personalities and the love that they had for each other. Jennifer was just glowing!! The ceremony was held in the Cochran Room and the reception was next door in the Archibald Ballroom. I had the pleasure of teaming up with ICVideo who filmed the day to tell their complete story. Below is a few of my favorites from the day.
We had so much fun taking pictures of the girls. Since it was so hot outside Jennifer asked if we could take all the pictures indoor. So, we went up to Rivue where there was plenty of natural light and beautiful decor. As you see below the girls were pros at striking a pose.
Later in the evening we dashed down to the Belvedere to take a few pictures before their grand entrance. The fountains provided the perfect backdrop.
Probably my favorite part of the evening was the couples first dance. They were so drawn into each other at that moment it was like they were the only two people in the room. It was so tender. They are going to love being able to replay that dance over and over again in their ICVideo wedding film.
Thanks Jennifer and Chris for choosing me to be your Louisville wedding photographer and including me in your special day!!!!
I was so pleased when Charlene and Scott chose me to be their Louisville wedding photographer. These are two of the nicest people and definitely get the award for "Best Dressed". We had such a great time shooting their Louisville engagement photos in downtown Louisville. We started down on Main Street near 21C, then made our way down towards Slugger Field, to the waterfront, and ended the evening across the river looking back on the Louisville skyline. Charlene and Scott chose the Walnut Street Baptist Church for their ceremony and booked The Gillespie Loft to celebrate their nuptials. Here are just a few of my favorites from the Louisville engagement session.
