Along side my husband of over a decade, I photograph people in love with each other and in love with their lives. We're based in Paducah Kentucky but gladly will go anywhere you want to take us! We are so glad you've stopped by to follow our most recent adventures! Grab your favorite drink and snack and get cozy... there's plenty to see!

This sweet baby boy! I had the privilege of photographing his birth a couple of weeks before his newborn session and in those short days, he had already grown so much! But babies do that, don’t they?

I’ve photographed many a birth before Baby River’s, but never one outside of Paducah. When Kristen first inquired, I reminder her that due to the birth taking place over an hour from Paducah, there was a chance I may not make it in time if I didn’t have plenty of notice. She assured me she understood that was a possibility and that she would keep me updated every step along the way. I greatly appreciate over communication, especially in matters such as birth.

I rarely blog the first look between the bride and her dad. The facial expressions really have to blow me away for those images to make it on here. And Leigh’s dad knocked it out of the park! His excitement was palpable – and really, everyone’s was!

Even though the timeline so far of Leigh & Justin’s relationship is shorter than most (met and started dating in August, engaged in November, married in January!), they’d been waiting their whole lives for each other and they both knew almost immediately that there would be no one else in this world for either of them. So why delay? Why spend more time not married to each other?? Not one person in their lives could give a good reason!

It started off a mild rainy day so I was thankful everyone was getting ready at the ceremony location, which has a naturally gorgeous indoor area perfect for weddings on days such as this. I was also thankful that even though the temperature dropped significantly, the rained stopped right at the perfect time! After the ceremony, family portraits, and bridal party portraits, we were able to step outside for a few minutes of bride & groom portraits! I was so relieved that we were able to shoot on the front steps of the church – it’s literally the only location that Leigh requested we do portraits!

An Edge of Fall and Winter Engagement Session in Paducah Kentucky This was such a sweet engagement session! These two met through Facebook and after just one date they both realized they perfect they were for one another. After spending just two hours with them back in November, I also knew it to be true!

A Laid Back Fall Country Engagement Session in Paducah Kentucky Sarah says Tanner’s smile immediately stole her heart from the second she met him, her new best friend’s brother. “In that moment his big blue eyes and breath-taking smile literally had be speechless.” HOW SWEET! Sarah was smitten with even the first glance of Tanner […]

Late December wasn’t Olivia’s first choice for her wedding but her medical school schedule and the resident program following it really limited her and John on when they could get married. But if they couldn’t have a summer wedding, hopefully it would at least snow during their wedding in December, and how gorgeous would that be? Bride & Groom portraits in the snow! I know, as the photographer, I would love it! And then suddenly, this past weekend showed up with but high 60 degree temps instead of snow! Oh, that’s Kentucky weather for you! We took advantage of the warmth and did all that we could outside before the ceremony, which made this natural light photographer happy!
