Jessica and Austin first sought me out with the general inquiry: how much did I charge for a wedding, was I available on their date, etc. I was available at the time but not two days later another couple inquired about that same date. Even though Jessica and Austin hadn’t booked that date with me, they did ask first so I emailed them back and updated them. Pretty much, if they were still interested I would tell the other couple that I wasn’t available. Austin replied only an hour later with a Yes they want to book me and followed it up with something that really made me love my job and my amazing couples: “Thanks for checking with us! We don’t want to lose you! You are by far Jessica’s favorite and I’d be in big trouble if I messed this up.”

I am so lucky to be able to work with people who want to work with me just as much as I do them!

Hannah and Lee met, get this, online! Now, they are not the first people I’ve met to have met their signification other online. In fact, they say 1 in 5 married couples met online! This will be, however, the first wedding I’ve shot whose couple met online so this is exciting for me. Hannah is from the Paducah are but Lee is from Texas. The story gets better when you learn that after chatting online for a time, Lee packed up and moved all the way to Western Kentucky to be with Hannah. So sweet!

When I asked what they wanted to remember about the two of them right at this moment they answered “Our youth, how much we love each other, and how happy we are right now.”

Love these photos!

Kim Bondurant -

Those are the sweetest pictures I’ve ever seen. Young love – So Beautiful!

Alita -

Hannah, you and Lee look so happy. Love you both, and love these photos.

We took possession of our house last night! Because the previous owners didn’t move out until yesterday, I had to wait to take pictures of the BEFORE: before we cleaned (not that there really was much to clean, they did a great job!), before we taped a single wall, before any boxes made it in the house. We spent this afternoon taping and getting and moving a few boxes in the garage and it’s late so…On to the pictures!

You may remember this photo from before BUT this time, my car is in the driveway! So yea, here’s the front (we have many plans for the front):

PINIMAGE

And then the back, a good view on the deck (also which we have many plans for):

PINIMAGE

The picture on the left shows our big magnolia tree. So excited for it to bloom! And the one on the right shows our stone walkway (plans):

PINIMAGE

View from the deck:

PINIMAGE
PINIMAGE
PINIMAGE

So imagine you walk in our front door and following the wall all the way around our house starting at the wall on the right this would be your tour…

So here’s the front door, and you see that wall on the left? Yea, THAT’s the wall on the right. Confused yet? It turns down the hallway:

PINIMAGE

First you’ll come to the first bedroom, the blue bedroom, will be the guest bedroom. It’s the first door on the right:

PINIMAGE

The second door and also the last door on the right is the second bedroom, the pink and yellow bedroom, will be the nursery:

PINIMAGE

Directly across the nursery is the master bedroom:

PINIMAGE
PINIMAGE

Off the master bedroom is the master bathroom (plans):

PINIMAGE
PINIMAGE

The shower gets its own big picture because we love it:

PINIMAGE

Coming out of the master bedroom and traveling back up the hallway, there’s a closet on the right:

PINIMAGE

Turning out of the hallway to your right and around the corner is another closet and the second bathroom:

PINIMAGE
PINIMAGE
PINIMAGE

Coming out of the second bathroom you’ll have a view into part of the living room:

PINIMAGE

But continuing on to the right you’ll see the dining area. I backed up into the living room to get a better shot:

PINIMAGE

Standing in the same spot, I turned to get a shot of coming into the kitchen:

PINIMAGE

Then I actually moved into the dining area for this shot. I was standing in front of the fireplace:

PINIMAGE

Then I moved into the kitchen on the other side:

PINIMAGE
PINIMAGE
PINIMAGE

On the other side of the kitchen is the eat in area, will be …. a surprise… those windows look out into the back yard:

PINIMAGE

On the other side of the eat in area is the laundry room which has a door to the back yard:

PINIMAGE
PINIMAGE

And finally, standing in the part of the living room pictured above, the front door again:

PINIMAGE

This is what Neil did the whole time I took pictures:

PINIMAGE

And if Neil went outside, this is what the puppies did:

PINIMAGE

Finally, this is what we also did while at the house. Our first dinner in our new house!

I have been waiting for this wedding since I met Kacey and her mom back in February. They had about half of the wedding details figured out then and they can tell you, I was completely geeking-out over them. Then I shot Kacey and Hunter’s engagement session and I knew their wedding was going to be one of my favorites. The only bad thing was over entirely too soon.
