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!

Callie & Daniel

July 3, 2013

June 22nd, Callie & Daniel’s wedding day, was also the first day I met either one of them. I’m always a little nervous when that is the case. Usually, I meet my couples for the first time during their booking meeting. And then again, we meet again for their engagement session, and finally, a third time during their pre-wedding consultation. By the time a couple’s wedding day rolls around, the three of us a very comfortable with each other.

But when your couple lives hours away and have no connection to Paducah, those first three get togethers normally don’t occur. Of course, Callie and I had been emailing for months and Callie, Daniel, and I spoke together over the phone for their pre-wedding consultation but there was a certain excitement that ran through me that morning.

If you’re a RHP bride, you would know that after only a few times emailing back and forth, I am still mostly likely going to hug you when I see you during the booking meeting or the engagement session (if we didn’t have a booking meeting). And then hug you whenever I see you next, and the time after that as well. Yea, I’m a hugger 😉 So you can only imagine to hug that I gave Callie the first time I saw her! Their day went extremely smooth and even though it threatened to rain, it held off until after all the portraits. Lucky!
