Rachael Houser Photography » Wedding Photographer based in Western Kentucky

Travis and Meagan met while in high school in a youth group. They are both young but were lucky enough to have found each other as soon as they did. I really believe God puts people in your life for a reason… and I believe that God made Meagan for Travis and Travis for Meagan. Just for the short time I was with them during their engagement session, I saw an immense love for Christ and for each other in their heart. I know they will be so happy together because they have a Christ centered relationship.

I have been for years now but with a few thins going on lately, I’m really leaning on KLOVE Christian radio station to help me through the day. I listen to it on my way to work, on my way home… essentially, if I’m in my car, KLOVE is playing. I even listen to it online when I’m working. I’m heavily relying on Pinterest for ideas of spring and summer landscaping, which I hope to start implementing very soon! It’s a little embarrassing how many times I’ve picked dinner up from Fazoli’s lately. I always get the same thing – Twice Baked Lasagna. SOOOOO GOOD! A friend and I have been going to Zumba every Monday and Wednesday and we’re definitely going to keep it up. It’s so much AND it really does my body good! True Blood. How did I not know this show was so amazing?!? I started watching a couple weeks ago (Thank You Netflix!!!) and I’m addicted! I’ve stumbled upon a few graphics that I plan on blowing up and getting large prints made from. Like this one that’s going in our bedroom <3

Growing up, I was a bit of a shy child. There really wasn’t a reason and thankfully, I grew out of it. Otherwise, I would have never had the pleasure of working with such a great couple! I met Britney while shopping in The Limited one afternoon. She was, in fact, working there and was the one to assist me in trying on a few outfits. She had some great ideas, I loved her style, and she was so sweet! Just when I thought she couldn’t get any better, I noticed she had an engagement ring on… but no wedding band! Lightbulb! I started chatting her up about her wedding and after I was positive that she was the bride for me, I casually asked if she had a photographer. She didn’t! I handed her my card and let her know that I would LOVE to talk more about her wedding and the possibility of working together. Fast forward a few weeks and her mom calls me. They wanted to book me! Now, if I were still that shy person none of that story would have happened and I wouldn’t be sharing their engagement session with you today!

I arrived at the Kentucky Dam Village Convention Center on the first spring-like day of 2013. Gorgeous could not describe the weather. It was truly a blessing because, since the wedding and reception were inside, I wanted to grab a few outside shots. I started inside the convention center, where both the ceremony and reception would take place later that afternoon.PINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGE

Then I met up with the girls at their cabin down the road. Sunni was already glowing!

I just love cute touches – like matching shirts for the girls!

I got my wish! We headed out behind the cabin to this perfect tree line for portraits.

The boys were patiently waiting for me when I arrived at their cabin. We grabbed a couple shots at the tree line behind their cabin as well.

Of course there was a cake, but also, there was a candy/treat bar! These are my kind of people!

Married!! Gotta love a wedding party with attitude!

Their first dance brought tears to my eyes. Seeing a couple, so in love, just being together like they are the only ones in the room <3

Sunni and her dad started and ended their dance the traditional way, but the middle was quite a surprise!

Thank you SO much Sunni & Cody! You started my wedding season off in the best way possible!
