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!

Bride & Groom Portraits

July 9, 2014

This is my absolutely favorite time of the day, but one that can sometimes be difficult to fit in – with everything that’s going on and not wanting to be away from the party too long – but a lot of what you see in my portfolio is shots taken during this time.

I try to keep it short, 20 minutes is enough to get some amazing photos, but if you can spare 30 minutes over the course of the day, that will work perfectly. Almost all of my couples have said how much they enjoyed spending a few moments together. I like to find somewhere away from prying eyes and ask that it’s just us so that you can really relax. We will talk about the best time to skip out and do this, but if it’s bright then the evening light will be much more flattering, or if there’s a passing shower, it could be better the wait until later.

If the light is absolutely beautiful later on, or I spot an amazing sunset, I might ask to borrow you again, maybe between dinner and dessert, to do something creative. Light and the opportunity to relax are probably the most important factors. If you’d like to bring along and incorporate some props then please do.

Natural light is my absolutely favorite, but it indoor or outdoor, but I can work with a little bit of trickery too and we can work together to decide on the best time and location for these photos. I quite like doing one or two after portraits too!
