I'm glad you stopped by. My name is David Blair and I am a Louisville Wedding Photographer. My goal as a wedding photographer is to provide brides and grooms throughout Kentucky, Indiana and anywhere worldwide with stunning photographic images and presentations. I strive to produce unique and artistic images that preserve the romance, emotions and overall vibe of weddings in an unobtrusive manner. I absolutely love my job and never get tired of shooting couples on their happiest day. Each wedding is a different and unique experience that pushes me to be even more creative.
I discovered I had an eye for photography when I was first handed a camera in high school. With yearbook providing the film, I was able to continually improve and hone my skill. I had found my niche. In college, I took a variety of photography classes which taught me the technical side of photography, and I then furthered my skill by attending photography conferences and workshops. Now after 12 years of photographing weddings, I love it more than ever.
Sydney & Jennifer’s Wedding at Churchill Downs
Posted in Uncategorized
Sydney and Jennifer’s Wedding at Churchill Downs was a joy to photograph. The venue was of course quite unique. Louisville’s Churchill Downs racetrack made famous by the annual running of the Kentucky Derby was a fun choice to host their celebration. We were sure to place the iconic twin spires in the background of several images. It was a race day so guess had the option of coming early to enjoy the track’s festivities. But late in the afternoon all attention was focused upon Jennifer walking down the aisle to her love. Sydney who also goes by Chuck was in tears watching his beautiful bride stride towards him. It was a Christian wedding with the words of Scripture not only being read and proclaimed by the minister but also printed on the custom aisle runner. It had the words, “I have found the one whom my soul loves” from the Bible’s Song of Solomon. And indeed it was a celebration of finding love, but even more solemnly committing to love one another for the rest of life. This is part of why I love wedding photography specifically, because I’m not just providing artistic photographic images, but I’m documenting one of the most serious vows people every take. My goal as a wedding photographer is to help each couple relive one of the most important days of their life for years to come. Each detail is important and for this wedding the donut wall, unique hanging lights over the bar and views of both the city and the racetrack from the reception room made it distinct. One of my favorite moments of the day was during the traditional father daughter dance when the music abruptly changed to something upbeat and they wowed all the guest with their impressive dance moves. Congratulations Sydney and Jennifer and thanks for the honor of having me be part of your day!
