Dominque & Natasha’s Wedding

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 France

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.

Kentucky Bride Features Madison and Justin’s Wedding

Madison and Justin’s wedding was full of unique outdoor wedding ideas and is an example of just how beautiful Kentucky wedding photography can be. I’m so excited that Kentucky Bride Magazine decided to future this sweet couple’s special day in their Real Kentucky Weddings section. Madison and Justin’s wedding took place on a cool autumn day on a private ranch just outside of Louisville. There were so many details about this Kentucky wedding that I enjoyed. The setting was absolutely stunning with beautiful views of rolling green hills, a rustic barn that had been finished inside for comfort, horse fencing, and trees. Madison wanted the feel of a church wedding, while being outdoors, and she actually pulled it off! The ceremony location was given a unique vibe by bringing in church pews, custom made wooden doors, a metal cross, and lots of flowers. Who would have thought to take church pews outside? So cool! Madison arrived in a horse drawn carriage and then walked down the aisle bursting with joy. The ceremony was designed to celebrate the couple’s union and honor God—the creator of their marriage. They braided a strand of three chords symbolizing the unity in marriage both with each other and with God during the ceremony. I loved seeing their affection and their love for one another displayed in front of everyone. Madison looked absolutely stunning in her dress and her unique shoes with the words “I do” written on the bottom. After the ceremony, we took time to create some laid-back photos, and then it was time to head into the barn for the reception. I’m so excited for this couple as now Kentucky Bride has shared their beautiful unique day with the world.

Todd & Blair are getting married!

I recently did Todd & Blair’s engagement session the day after he popped the question. It was so much fun getting to be part of this exciting weekend! Todd proposed during a camping trip with friends in Red River Gorge and the next day they came back into the city to create some romantic and comfortable portraits in the heart of Louisville. Blair was excited and glad to show off her new ring. As we talked it was clear that they weren’t going to just wait around, but that wedding planning was already underway. Todd had scheduled the session weeks in advance, but I did not find out until that evening that they were so newly engaged. It made the session that much more enjoyable as I was able to celebrate with them. As a Louisville wedding photographer I never tire of documenting the affection of couples in love. It was great getting to spend some time with them during this exciting season of life. We took some pictures with the downtown cityscape and also spent some time exploring Cherokee Park. I love that they brought their dog along to get in a few images. They are a beautiful couple with a love that can be clearly seen.

Katie & Jacob’s Hurstbourne Country Club Wedding

Katie & Jacob’s Louisville wedding was beautiful. Their love for one another was so evident and their excitement was a joy to see. As a Louisville wedding photographer I always enjoy weddings at the Hurstbourne Country Club. It is such an elegant and sophisticated wedding venue. The ceremony took place at what they call the Ruins, between the greens on the golf course. The Ruins is a rock structure that resembles the facade of a old church building. I love how country club weddings always provide lots of opportunities to take pictures outside. We created comfortable portraits in the tree lined entrance as well as the gorgeous stone bridge and the clubhouse itself, both inside and out. The impressive staircase made for one of my favorite romantic photos of the day. Not only was the setting wonderful, but the weather was as comfortable as can be. Everything went according to plan as they exchanged vows before friends and family. Their large wedding party was playful and fun throughout the day. During the reception the guests enjoyed a delicious dinner and then were entertained by a live band that kept the dance party going all night long. The custom printed koozies made a fun gift for the guests. The evening ended with Jacob and Katie making a sparkler exit. It’s always a joy and honor to document one of the most important days in the lives of couples and I’m so glad Katie and Jacob chose to let me be a part of their day! Be sure to check out the beautiful guest book album we made with images from their engagement session.
