It was an absolutely beautiful early April day in Downtown Paducah… we’d just had our first real spring shower a few days before and the trees had just started to bloom and the temperature outside was nearing 65 degrees. It couldn’t have been better!
Sometimes I say the “getting ready” time is my favorite to photograph, more often than not you’ll hear me say that it’s the bride & groom portraits, or the bridal details. But Catherine & Jon’s day was different. I was beyond happy photographing every single second of their day because at any given moment, I could look at Jon and all I would see is Jon gazing adoringly at his bride. It was the simplest, sweetest thing – hard to even put into words. No exaggeration. The smile on his face and the love in his eyes were permanent fixtures that day.
Even a week later, when I picked them up from the airport after their honeymoon (that’s another story for another day haha) (You can just call me photographer/taxi-for-hire!) that same loving smile and adoring gaze was on Jon’s face. Catherine & Jon have truly found their soul mates.
Catherine provided her florist with an image she found on Pinterest of her ideal bridal bouquet and they NAILED it! So beautiful!!
I love it when a bride wants to do a first look with her dad…. such a sweet moment!
Jon’s daughter was in awe of her soon-to-be step mom…. love it!
These two are my favorite!
Both Catherine & Jon are hunters so it was only fitting!
Jon’s groom’s cake was simply the best! A hunting’ dog fetching a duck. Awesome work!
