RACHAEL HOUSER » photography for couples & families

It’s been over a year since I’ve shot a wedding at Broadway United Methodist Church but less than a year since shooting a reception at The Grand Lodge. Both places are equally beautiful and are major landmarks in Downtown Paducah. Those two reasons alone would have had me jumping at the chance to photograph Ashley & Joe’s wedding but it was a simple phone call from Ashley’s mom that “had me at hello”.

That phone call came to me a little under a year ago and Ashley’s mom’s description of Ashley and fiance Joe gave me all the feels! They met on their college campus (University of Tennessee) library during finals he afterward college they find themselves working in Virginia. Years later Joe proposal to Ashley during a visit home to Paducah for Christmas and finally, almost 2 years later, they tied the knot in the company of their wonderful friends and family.

Ashley was stunning in her full lace gown and cathedral lace-trimmed veil! And Joe looked flawless and classic in his black tie tux. Honestly, I could photograph lace gowns and black tie weddings for the rest of my days and never tire of it! Enjoy my favorites from Ashley & Joe’s amazing day!

You know that awesome feel you get when you meet someone and you click almost immediately? That’s exactly how I felt after only a few minutes of chatting with sweet Julie & Brian! The more we talked the more comfortable I felt with booking my one and only free Saturday in October and by the end of our meeting we had already nailed down their timeline! To say we were in sync would be putting it lightly!

One of my favorite parts of spending time with couples is hearing their story – how they met, how they got together, and how they got engaged. Julie & Brian’s story is best described as a God Thing! They lived next to each other for three years during college but didn’t know it! Finally, they were brought together through mutual friends but only after Brian had moved 7 hours away for work. It was worth it to both of them to see what could come of their relationship and it wasn’t long before Brian felt God telling him Julie was the one! He moved back to Western Kentucky and the rest is history! The car in their engagement session played a big part in Brian’s proposal to Julie and I can’t wait to photograph it again this Saturday for their wedding!

The trust that my couples have in me is so humbling. Neil and I feel this with each and every wedding we photograph and we are always so honored to get the opportunity to work with such amazing people! Take Alaina & Chris, for example…

They hired me to photograph their engagement session and wedding from a Skype call we did while I was still pregnant! More than a year and a half from their wedding date, we began their planning and it seemed so far away. But then suddenly it was time for Neil and I to head up to St. Louis for their engagement session! And at last, this time last week we were packing our bags for their Haue Valley wedding!

We arrived and immediately got down to business… I began photographing Alaina & Chris’ attire and details while Neil hung out with Alaina and her bridesmaids as they finished hair and makeup. Then I hung out with the girls and Neil with the guys until everyone was dressed and ready for portraits! They decided not to see each other before the ceremony so we did all the bridal party portraits we could with the time we had before guests arrived – which ended up being a lot because Alaina & Chris’ bridal party were simply perfection! They chose such a great bunch!While guests arrived and Alaina & Chris and their bridal party laid low, Neil and I photographed the ceremony and reception area.

While guests arrived and Alaina & Chris and their bridal party laid low, Neil and I photographed the ceremony and reception area. Haue Valley itself is gorgeous and the staff and Alaina & Chris’ friends and family were very careful not to distract from the stunning views and fun atmosphere. At long last, it was time for Alaina & Chris to be married!

Samantha & Zach are proud of the life they’ve built very in their first year of marriage – and they should be! Their lovely home and the property it sits on was the perfect setting for their anniversary portraits. We even broke out the top tier of their wedding cake to see if it really was just as good, if not better, than it was a year ago! It was!

In honor of their One Year Anniversary, I asked Samantha if she would write up a little reflection on her and Zach’s first year as a married couple so here she goes…!

The first year of marriage for Zach and I could be described in many different ways: adventurous, tearful, and full of love. Even though we dated a little over five years, moving in with him on our wedding night was the start too many new first. We learned many new things about each other since living together that were not foreseen while dating. Over the past year we have had several big accomplishments and even though it may have looked easy from others perspectives, it wasn’t. We have learned to give-and-take because if you don’t, nothing will work. Zach has learned that I do not like to do anything, housework wise, the day after a 12-hour midnight shift. And I have learned that Zach can twist any gun purchase he makes around to where I needed the gun haha! Marriage is about moving forward as one, putting yourself first, and making decisions to interest you both. Zach and I are working at this marriage thing one day at a time. As our one-year anniversary grows near, I can’t help but look back and smile at all that we’ve been through and know God was always on our side. Good or bad, at the end of the day I get to crawl into bed with my best friend for the rest of my life.

This long awaited wedding has finally come to pass and even though it just happened a few days ago, I already miss it! I miss the place, I miss the people, and I miss Beth & Stephen – one of my most trusting couples to date! From the very beginning, Beth trusted that I was the photographer for them even though there are dozens of photographers closer to Lebanon TN than I. She and Stephen trusted that it was worth the extra money to bring me down to Terian Farms for their engagement session and they had faith in me that I would supply the ideal timeline for everyone involved on their wedding day. And when the timeline had to be switched around due to rain early during the day, she said with a kind smile, “Whatever you think, Rachael”. Those are sweet words to a photographer’s ear!

Thankfully, it only rained while we were at the hotel and the girls were getting ready and as Neil and I drove to the venue, we could see that the storm was moving away from us! By the time we got to Terian Farms, the sun was shining again and the ceremony chairs were already being toweled dry. Even better was that a few clouds stuck around so the light was nice and defused the rest of the afternoon AND the temperature dropped from a balmy 98 degrees to 73! We could not have asked for better weather!

Beth & Stephen met while in college at the University of Tennessee through mutual friends and both their school and their friends were well showcased Saturday. I was surprised, actually, that Beth chose pink as her accent color and not orange! But then they broke out orange and white poms for the exit. And how many Volunteer alumni were present? Far too many for us to count! Everyone had a blast and even though we still had a 2 1/2 hour drive ahead of us, we were sad when the reception came to a close.
