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!
Mary Catherine & Corey met playing ultimate frisbee in Louisville and they continue to be very active with sports in the Louisville community. Mary Catherine states that they are very supportive in terms of cheering each other on in sporting events and that carries over to their relationship and everyday life. Now, I am not the sporting type but Neil is and I’ve learned that there’s almost nothing better to him than to have me there rooting him on in whatever he’s doing in life. Mary Catherine & Corey already have that nailed down and I’m certain their marriage will be a successful one!
Olivia & John, unbeknownst to them, actually went to high school together and were the first graduating class of the large county school in Paducah. It wasn’t until Olivia’s best friend from high school convinced her to hang out with a few of her other high school friends during the summer before their senior year in college – her at UK and him at Murray. But four years after they should have met each other, that one night in Paducah, brought them together!
Olivia envisioned fall engagement portraits with the yellow trees at Ashland The Henry Clay Estate and after looking up the location on the internet I emailed her and said we HAD to shoot there! And so, Tuesday morning I drove up to Lexington and while it was a little chilly, the sun was coming and going and we had a blast! I cannot wait for their wedding in less than 2 months!
Chloe’s mother and sister took note of everything Chloe had ever mentioned regarding her wedding over her entire life and thought about Chloe and Justin as a couple and what this wedding might look like in combination – and this is what they came up with! Pulling into the driveway of where Chloe & Justin’s engagement session took place, I told Neil that I only knew one thing: that this wedding was going to be colorful. I had no idea what we were in for but I can say with all honestly…
It was the most fun I’ve ever had photographing details of a reception!
But don’t skip over Chloe’s details. Or their sweet first look or gorgeous bride & groom portraits. DEFINITELY don’t miss their beautiful golden hour ceremony under the most elaborate floral arch I’ve ever seen. And oh wow their golden hour and sunset Bride & Groom portraits! I could have photographed Chloe & Justin and their wedding over and over again!
I still remember receiving the email from Chloe saying that they had gotten engaged the day before and wanted to get on my radar fast because she knew fall season was a busy one. And she’s right! Fall is my busiest season but I still have their wedding date available so I shared my investment information with her and not even an hour later she replied with a resounding LET’S DO IT and when can we schedule their engagement session?!
I’d come to know Justin from our very favorite coffeehouse and local hang out, Et Cetera, in Paducah and had seen Chloe around for a while. I immediately fell in love with them as a couple and was beyond honored that they asked me to be their photographer. We had the best time in their session in Lower Town in their formal outfits! And the golden hour at her grandmother’s farm was perfection…. it’s hard to imagine their wedding beating their session!
Having this sweet family into my studio for the first time since I began photographing them back in 2010 is such an honor! I mean, just check out how perfect Baby Sister Blair fits in with her Big Brother Blake and mom and dad? They are perfection and I wouldn’t want anything less for them!
One of the downfalls of photographing a night birth is that more often than not, the siblings aren’t there to meet the newest member of their family and therefore, I rarely get to photograph that introduction. BUT when I’m also hired to photograph the fresh baby session, I get to come back the next day and be there when big brother or sister arrives to meet the new baby! In this case, Big Brother Blake was so ready to meet his little sister Blair, who he’s been waiting for for a long time, and it showed!
