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!
Studio Assistant Position Open! I am SO excited to announce I am hiring a part time Studio Assistant to join the team! And it’s happening SOON! After much thought, prayer, and consideration, we have decided to expand our small team of two (myself and my husband, Neil), and link arms with someone who will add value […]
Even though Katie had strong ties to Louisville after graduating from college, she returned to work in her hometown of Paducah where through a work event, she met Penrod. They immediately clicked and when the timing was right, they began dating. Fast forward through years of continuing education, career changes, and life milestones, Penrod finally popped the question on his birth this past summer. Katie says that, obviously she is over the moon to be engaged, but she thinks her favorite part has been seeing how excited Penrod is! She said it makes her so happy, proud, and even more in love with him!
Their engagement session so a tad chilly but otherwise gorgeous. And these two??? So amazing to work with! Naturals in front of my camera and so giddy together – both of which make my job incredibly easy! After teaching them my posing methods during the first 10 minutes of the shoot, for the rest of our two hours together, I only have to worry about placing them in good light. They took care of the rest! How excited am I for their June 2020 wedding? SO EXCITED!!!!!
Getting tired of all this lovey dovey ness of couples? I hope not! Because that’s my speciality!!
Alyssa & Kyle’s 2018 wedding was on the blog Tuesday afternoon and when we got together a few days short of their one year anniversary a little over a month ago, it was like we picked up right from where we left off from their wedding day! They are such naturals and have the most genuine and contagious smiles! I could work with them all day every day! But I’m sure Kyle would get tired of me! Haha!
It’s so refreshing to photograph an intimate wedding ceremony every once in a while and Alyssa & Kyle’s was pure perfection. They’d planned to have the ceremony on a beautiful clear plot of land that looks out over the Ohio River that belongs to Alyssa’s father, however the rains in the days before made the ground too mushy and so the ceremony was relocated last the morning of to her home church. They were disappointed but a quick scouting made it clear to me that we could at the very least do family portraits there. Family portraits after the ceremony turned into bride & groom portraits and now, those portraits are some of my all time favorites from 2018!
But rewind a little – Alyssa & Kyle have been together since high school so when he proposed 8 years later, they didn’t want to wait any longer. She contacted me one October day requesting my availability in November for an intimate Friday wedding. And one month later, I show up to a small hometown church where her best friend and her sister are helping her get ready to marry her high school sweetheart. We ended the night with a dinner reception at their favorite Downtown Paducah restaurant, Max’s. I could not have loved their wedding more!
Leah & Ryan’s session was another anniversary turned maternity and I just loved loved loved getting that email! We had a great time working together for their maternity but I won’t lie, I was just bidding time until Baby Bailey arrived! I couldn’t wait to get the THREE of them in my studio for her newborn session!! And she did not disappoint!
