find me elsewhere
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 wedding was a whirlwind! Cassie contacted me back in August saying YAY she was engaged! And the wedding is in October…. of this year! As in two months! She had a lot to get planned but if anyone could do it, it was Cassie! And pull it off, she did! On their wedding day, the Events Barn looked spectacular inside and out, the vendors were top notch, and the weather did exactly what we needed it to do, when we needed it to do it!
We’re sitting on our 5th snow day in a row here in Western Kentucky and I’m alllll caught up on editing AND on preparing for baby (well, what I can do right now anyway) so let’s turn this frigid winter day into a warm (ish) fall afternoon with Holly & David’s two part engagement session!
It wasn’t my first time shooting a wedding at The Country Plantation House but it felt so new! I could probably shoot there 100 times and still feel like there are places and things there that I didn’t notice the times before. Shooting with Elizabeth & Nathan was much the same – no matter what pose I tried on them, they looked amazing in it and so I was more going off the cuff with their bride & groom portraits than I usually do. No need to reference their engagement images to see which poses suited them best!
More often than not I don’t KNOW my couples before meeting their face to face during their engagement session. So before Shelby & Corey’s, I had no idea how sad I would be that I wouldn’t be available for their destination wedding this coming spring! We met in Downtown Paducah for their more formal outfit before heading to a location that I needed to find the perfect match for from a couple Pinterest images Shelby had shared with me… and I think we nailed it!
I’ve only known Jessica since before high school when we found out we were actually second (or third?) cousins! We were in color guard together and when she came to Murray State for college my sophomore, her freshmen year, I got to see her a few times (busy busy lives!) and even watch her precious son Ben. That was years ago though and NOW she’s welcome her and Brad’s second child into the world – Baby Amelia!
Leah contacted me 8 months ago in hopes that I’d be available for their November 2017 wedding. They hadn’t booked anything yet though so I felt comfortable requesting any other dates they may be open to since I was completely booked for 2017. I was shocked but thrilled to learn that they’d were willing to book a November 2018 wedding date if it meant I’d be there to photograph it. UH YES PLEASE! Since we couldn’t shoot their wedding 2017, we opted for a 2017 engagement session. Such a tease – now I have to wait more than a year to work with them again!
