A Sentimental Fall Lone Oak High School Sweetheart Engagement Session in Paducah Kentucky


I always have fun on engagement sessions, and it’s my goal that my couples at least have some fun… but during their engagement session a few days ago, I was beyond pleased that it seemed they were having as much fun as I was!

We started downtown where we hit a few of my favorite spots. God was really showing off that day – the fall colors were everywhere, there was a light breeze, and it was 80 degrees! At the end of October?! Yea, that’s Kentucky weather for you!

Both Ashley & Matt are from Paducah so we HAD to have this picture! Paducah has so much charm and I am so lucky that I have couples that like to highlight it!

Ashley’s eyes… oh my goodness! This is straight out of the camera too – no editing necessary!

We spent out second hour on the playground at Lone Oak Elementary School – which is where they met! They went from friends, to best friends, to boyfriend and girlfriend, and are finally engaged to be married!! Love stories like theirs make me swoon!

    You did a fabulous job capturing the absolute love my daughter and my future son, whom we already call that, have for each other! It has been a fabulous journey for them and for the ones that love them to be a part of and we can’t wait for their day in October and for you to capture it!
