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.
Kelsey said YES! As a Louisville wedding photographer one of the exciting and unique things I get asked to do is to photograph proposals as they happen. David contacted me recently because he was planning to pop the question in Louisville and he wanted to have it well documented. Today was the day and I spent the afternoon secretly photographing the proposal along the river front with the city skyline as the backdrop. David & Kelsey spent the whole day together and then just before sunset David dropped to one knee and proposed! After she said yes and kissed her new fiancé she notice that I have been documenting the whole thing like the paparazzi out of the window of my vehicle. Next they were gracious enough to spend a few minutes with me creating some comfortable portraits to mark the momentous occasion. I could not be more excited for them!
Rachael and Matt’s wedding was such a joy to photograph. As a Louisville wedding photographer I always enjoy creating images downtown at the historic Seelbach Hotel. All the festivities took place in the Grand Ballroom up on the 10th floor with a beautiful view of the city and the late afternoon sunlight. The elegant room has marble wall accents, palladium windows, massive crystal chandeliers and a welcoming fireplace. It’s no surprise that it was featured in The Great Gatsby as the setting for a wedding. Rachael chose to even add an extra special touch by having fabric draped from the ceiling. It truly looked amazing, but the real showstopper was the bride. Rachael looked absolutely amazing and heard groom could not be happier. After the ceremony everyone headed out into the foyer for a cocktail hour while the room was transformed into on lavish reception with beautiful center pieces and an excellent meal that would rival that of many good steak houses. They invited a lively bunch and the dance floor was moving nonstop from the first moment it opened. Everyone was having a great time. Some of my favorite images from the day were a silhouette taken right after their first look, and of course this first image taken in front of the hotel at dusk. I also really like one of guests toasting the bride and groom. I was able to capture the toast from a unique angle that allowed me to look up through the glasses. I love how it turned out.
Dominque & Natasha’s Louisville Wedding was such a joy to photograph. They are a fun loving couple who surrounded themselves with a lively bridal party. Natasha had fun custom T-shirts and sunglasses made for all for bridesmaids. They chose to have their ceremony in a church building and to intentionally draw attention to the great God and Savior who is the maker and giver of marriage and every other good gift. Once they had made their vows and everything was official we made our way to the reception at the Hyatt downtown. The guest enjoyed a cocktail hour and a scrumptious dinner before the dance floor was opened. Their dance party was absolutely unbelievable! They also provided delicious desserts and a photo-booth for the guest.
Martin & Noëlle’s Session in Paris at Notre-Dame Cathedral along the River Seine was so fun to photograph. As a destination wedding photographer it’s hard to think of any setting more romantic than working in the city of love. I was in Paris to shoot a destination wedding, but was able to also book this session during the trip. I noticed lots of other happy couples as we started our session and as Martin & Noëlle began to take a walk I started thinking about how many couples have walked hand in hand along this river admiring the intricate Gothic architecture of the 800 year old cathedral just like these two. Martin & Noëlle stand in a long line of those who have been so blessed to find someone to cherish and love. I am so thankful to God for the incredible gift of Love and I only wish I could have walked along the river with my incredible wife as well, but alas, not on this trip. I also enjoyed working on the Love-Lock bridge in which couples sign a lock, attach it to the bridge and throw the key into the river symbolizing their unbreakable love. Martin & Noëlle decided to share an ice cream cone while sitting on one of the bridges before we made our way over to the Eiffel tower to finish the session at sunset. They were such an affectionate couple and their love for one another was obvious to anyone who saw them. I was so glad to spend the afternoon with them.
