Pine Manor, Carbondale Wedding, Rachael Houser PhotographyPINIMAGE

If there ever was a wedding I wish I’d budgeted more time for bridal details, it would have been Branna & John’s! You’d think with a second shooter, an hour would have been plenty but Branna had coordinated everything so well, I just couldn’t get enough! I felt the same way about the entire venue, Branna in her dress, and John in his black bow tie… I could have spent HOURS photographing the gorgeousness! Needless to say, I would love the opportunity to shoot there again… any takers???

My favorite parts of the day have to be, in chronological order:

Branna’s nerves before the ceremony. It’s given to be nervous but I’d never photographed a bride more anxious to see her groom! It was so sweet! Each step closer to the start of the ceremony, Branna grew more and more nervous. Getting her into her gown was such a treat!

John’s face (and tears!) as Branna walked down the aisle to meet him. If every traditional look was like theirs, I would never recommend a first look! Priceless!

And finally, the mess Branna & John made on each other’s faces during the cake cutting! The image at the end of the blog post is just the final result. The lead up was quite hilarious!

Paducah Kentucky Summer Engagement Session, Rachael Houser PhotographyPINIMAGE

This couple. You guys. I could not be more honored to be this couple’s photographer! But more importantly, I could not be more honored to be this girl’s sister-in-law!!

With my help, Harrison commandeered Kortney’s style blogger shoot with me this past November to pop the question while I photographed it. Nine months later, we returned to the same location (my parents’ property) to shoot their engagement session! I may not have been there from the beginning of their relationship, but they’ve blessed me so much by asking me to be a part of their new beginning. June 2016 cannot get here fast enough!

Grand Rivers Kentucky Portraits, Rachael Houser PhotographyPINIMAGE

Monday I blogged this little man’s parents’ engagement session. If you notice that the images look very similar, it’s because we did a half and half session – half family, half engagement! I don’t normally do half and half sessions but it’s quickly approaching their wedding and Bryer was going to be at the session with them anyway! Why not?

This little guy, I tell you! He smiles at the simplest things and his eyes… Oh his eyes! They are SO big and so fully of expression!! Being around Bryer made me miss my little man so I held Bryer as much as his daddy would let me. This family is the sweetest!

Grand Rivers, Kentucky Engagement Session, Rachael Houser PhotographyPINIMAGE

I’m always surprised when clients contact me from different marketing and advertising websites. I only have a couple of free accounts where I set up a “storefront”, and then forget all about it. That is, until I receive an inquiry! Weddingwire.com has sent me more than a handful of clients over the past couple of years I’ve been with them and I’m more than thrilled with the wonderful people that use their website.

Shelby & Josh are a classic example of awesome couples! They first hired me, through Weddingwire.com, to be their engagement and wedding photographer but a few weeks later they emailed me about being their maternity photographer! I love getting to work with my clients more than just once or twice and this gave me a great opportunity to get to know them better. We got together for their engagement session and thought, hey! let’s incorporate Baby Bryer’s 6 month session as well (that blog coming Wednesday!)! Two birds, one stone! I am so excited to photograph this precious couple and their little man for a third time for their October 2015 wedding!
