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.
Sara and Jon’s wedding took place at St Mary’s Church where Sara grew up attending. It is a cute little white church building out in the countryside. The ceremony in which they vowed their fidelity to each other was beautiful. We took some time to do some portraits both inside and outside of the church. Then after the morning wedding everyone headed to the reception atop the Brown Hotel for an absolutely fabulous brunch. Sara and Jon love breakfast foods and the catering staff at the Brown made sure everyone had something they enjoyed with a variety of scrumptious options. In addition to the buffet there was a custom omelette bar. The view of Louisville on the crisp clear day made an excellent backdrop to their festivities. As a Louisville wedding photographer I love Brown Hotel Wedding Receptions and this was no exception. The grandeur of the architecture truly matched the importance of what was being celebrated. We made some images down on the street outside the hotel, in the ornate lobby and up on the rooftop just steps away from where the reception was held. It was an honor to document this most important day for Jon and Sara. Their love for one another was obvious for everyone to see and made my task of creating comfortable portraits of the two of them a breeze. They are lovely couple and I hope these images help them cherish this day for decades to come. Congratulations and thanks for letting me be part of your day!
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.
