Meet Jen and Aaron. They will be wed this upcoming July at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in New Albany, IN and their reception will be at the Muhammad Ali Center. Weddings at the Muhammad Ali Center have sweeping views of the Ohio River, a modernly designed event space, and don't forget the cascading stairs outside the venue perfect for awesome bridal party pictures. We began our engagement session down on the quaint Spring Street in Jeffersonville, IN. Engagement sessions are usually a mix of exploring neat spots by foot for shots and quick stop offs for me to snap a few. We ventured further down to the bed and breakfast where Aaron was oh so sly in tricking Jen into thinking she was helping him with a task, instead he plopped down on one knee and popped the questions. Afterwards, we made the hike up to the Big Four Bridge where we captured engagement photos of the sunset. This happened to be the first time I was on the Indiana side of the Big Four Bridge. At the base, they had a few really neat light sculptures that proved to be picture perfect. I am looking forward to being Jen & Aaron's Indiana wedding photographer. Thanks for sharing an evening with me. Had a blast!! Below are a few of my favorites.
Meet Ben and Chelby. They live in Nashville, but next year they will be married at the Frazier History Museum. I had a blast photographing their Louisville engagement photos. We tried to incorporate their personality into the pictures so that they reflected what they love to do together. Ben plays the piano and I was given the task of finding a place downtown that would allow us to use their piano for our photo shoot. The most elegant and perfect venue I could come up with was the Seelbach Hilton and it could not have worked out better. Chelby and Ben also enjoy playing chess so we stopped in Please & Thank You in NuLu for a delicious cup of coffee. The staff was very kind to let us snap a few photos. With how well the engagement session went it makes me all the more excited for the big wedding day.
P.S. Chelby & Ben thanks for the thank you card. It was very thoughtful :)
This past fall I had the pleasure of photographing Melanie & Bryan's Huber's Winery wedding photos. Indiana is a location that I often travel to for weddings and Huber's Winery is one of my favorite Indiana venues. The staff was so accommodating and allowed us to venture down to the wine cellar to snap a few photos. I had the pleasure of teaming up with ICVideo as they filmed all day to deliver the couple's the ceremony, all the reception events, and craft them a wedding film that they can relive forever. Melanie and Bryan's wedding reception got off to a fun start with Cory Leonardo with PartyZone Productions announcing the Grand entrances. There was a brutal cake smash, a fun game where everyone got to know the bride and groom a little bit better, and lots of spirited dancing. One of my favorite photos is of Bryan removing Melanie's garter. The suprised look I captured was priceless. Partyzone Productions had the dance floor packed late into the evening. I always know it is going to be a fun reception when Corey is the DJ. Below is a few of my favorite Indiana wedding photos from Huber's Winery. What made this such a fantastic wedding is the bride and groom enjoyed the day together. That may sound silly, but a lot of the time the couples get so concerned with entertaining everyone else you seldom see them together. Melanie and Bryan are going to have a great marriage and I am so glad I was a part of the beginning of it :)
Here is a great Louisville wedding. Photographed it back in November at the Ice House. Wedding bells rang for Jenn and Kent at the urban chic Louisville wedding venue the Ice House. The day all began at the Downtown Hyatt for prep. The girls had their hair and makeup done in the comfort of their Hyatt Suite. There Jenn had all of her friends and Kent's mom on hand to help her slip into her beautiful wedding dress. The couple chose to do a first look on the expansive rooftop of the Ice House. They chose to take most of their pictures beforehand as to not make their guest wait too long after the ceremony. The couple exchanged their vows on the second floor mezzanine and their reception celebration took place in the main hall. It was a grand celebration with heartfelt speeches, formal dances, a rowdy dance floor, and a jubilant sparkler send off. I am very glad Kent and Jenn chose me to be there Louisville wedding photographer. It was great fun spending the day with them and I wish them all the best. Below you will find a few of my favorite Louisville wedding photographs from the event.
Take a look at Emily and Jonathan's beautiful wedding at Saint Mary of the Knobs. It was a smoldering hot summer day and we were so lucky to be indoors most of the day. Emily and Jonathan chose to do a first look before the ceremony to take all pictures beforehand so afterwards they could dash off to the reception at the Hyatt in downtown Louisville. The reception was a joyous celebration with heartfelt speeches, wonderful dances, and a lively packed dance floor. It was such a pleasure to spend the day with these two.
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.
