Emily & Justin’s New Albany Wedding at the Grand

Goines-Blog-01
Justin and Emily tied the knot at the Grand in New Albany, which is an old theater that has been converted into a wedding venue. As a Louisville and New Albany wedding photographer I was glad to go shoot another wedding at the Grand. One of the unique parts of this Southern Indiana wedding venue is that the couple gets to have their names up in lights as well as their engagement photos out front where the old movie posters used to be placed. In fact for Justin and Emily’s engagement session we actually came and shot some in front of the theater. The day of the wedding was gorgeous and it was a joy to document. Emily has an impressive peacock tattoo filling most of one arm, so it was quite appropriate that her bouquet included peacock feathers. After some images with the bride and her bridesmaids and the groom the groomsmen it was time for Emily and Justin to see each other. Next we walked around downtown creating some New Albany Indiana wedding photos that these two we’ll cherish for years to come. With most of the photos out of the way it was time for the ceremony to begin. Emily looked fabulous walking down the aisle and Justin was clearly excited to finally be marrying the love of his life. Once they have made their vows to one another it was time to party. Their guest signed a large letter G that will undoubtedly be hung up on a wall in their home. The guest enjoyed food, dancing, a photo booth and a color coordinated Candy buffet. I was honored to get to document Emily and Justin’s big day. Enjoy!

Lindsay & Mark’s Bardstown Wedding

Gehl-Hamilton-Blog-00
Lindsay & Mark’s Wedding in Bardstown was a complete joy to document. As a Kentucky wedding photographer I love to get out of Louisville and provide Bardstown wedding photography. Lindsay & Mark are such a kind and thoughtful couple. I had the pleasure of documenting the rehearsal dinner the night before and I was reminded how much I enjoyed getting to know them during their engagement session last fall. The day started with Mark getting ready with his guys, which included a little bit of bourbon before they headed to the wedding. The beautiful old church in the rolling hills just outside of Bardstown made a beautiful setting for their marriage ceremony.  After they tied the knot, we took pictures right outside the church building and then made our way down to Makers Mark Bourbon Distillery to add a little flavor to their Bardstown KY wedding photography. It was my first time there and I thoroughly enjoyed the setting with a beautiful little creek surrounded by spring blossoms, a quaint covered bridge and other unique buildings. That it was time to head to the heart of downtown Bardstown for the wedding reception. It seemed that all the guest were in a lively mood as the dance floor was full all night. At one point severe thunderstorms moved in and tornado sirens even went off, but the storm moved on quickly and the dance party jumped back into full swing. Congratulations to Mark and Lindsey and I hope everyone enjoys these Bardstown wedding photos. Feel free to leave a comment.

Kentucky Bride Features Matthew and Layne’s Wedding

I am so excited for Layne and Matthew. Kentucky Bride is featuring their wedding on KentuckyBrideMagazine.com today. Kentucky Bride magazine is not only the regions leading wedding magazine with its thick issues jam packed with page after page of Kentucky wedding inspiration, but they also provide even more content and unique wedding ideas in Louisville, KY on their website. It is an honor each time I have one of my couples wedding featured in the magazine pages or on the site and I am glad they chose to publish this gorgeous wedding. The magazine called it a beautiful classic wedding. I couldn’t agree more. It was a thoroughly elegant occasion and I certainly enjoyed my time documenting these two as they tied the knot. Kentucky Bride reached out to the bride and asked her to tell her own story which give the post a much more personal feel. The ceremony took place at St. Louis Bertrand Catholic Church and then the party headed downtown to the the Seelbach Hotel for the reception. Layne’s excellent taste was evident throughout the entire day. She looked stunning in her dress and she made my job easy. Layne & Matthew’s Wedding Planner: Ellen of Shafox Weddings and Events did a fabulous job. She insured that everything looked amazing and the whole day flowed smoothly. I hope you enjoy the images below and find lots of unique wedding ideas for your special day. The other vendors included Photographer: David Blair Photography, Videographer: SG Productions, Wedding Cake: Mert’s Cakes, Florist: In Bloom Again, and DJ: Randy Embry.

Amanda and Andrew’s Louisville Engagement Session

Kovacs-Woo-Eng-Blog01
Spring has begun and with it this Louisville wedding photographer is excited to start the year’s wedding season! With the cold days of caring would to my fireplace and shoveling snow behind me it is exciting to get out and take some photos. Recently I spent the afternoon with Amanda and Andrew for their Louisville Engagement Session. We had a great time getting to know one another. They flew in from Washington DC for a whirlwind 4 day weekend of wedding planning. Andrew’s parents even made the trip so they could take part in the fun. Wedding planner Ellen Fox of ShaFox Weddings & Events packed their schedule full of activities. They sampled food from the Brown Hotel’s incredible catering staff, went cake tasting and met with many other wedding vendors. To finish the weekend off we went out for their engagement session. We casually made our way throughout Louisville creating images of this fun loving couple. First we wandered throughout Cherokee Park making use of the woods, paths, steps and bridges. Next we spent some time at the scenic Hurstbourne Country Club with its gorgeous clubhouse, bridge, creek and the ruins. Finally we made our way downtown to get a more urban look and over the river to shoot with the cityscape behind us. I love how their affection and love for one another is so clearly seen in these images. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Amanda and Andrew and I’m really looking forward to their wedding this fall.

Shooting in Paris Again

Paris
It is official. I just got my tickets to go shoot another destination wedding in Paris, France. I love destination weddings and I absolutely love Paris! It is so romantic with all the people bustling around and music always in the air. Let me describe how amazing it was last time I was photographing in Paris. Picture this moment with me. The weather was a perfect 77 degrees and I could feel the warm sun hitting my face just before it set. As I walked along the river near Notre Dame, there was a man playing an accordion, couples drinking wine and almost everyone was carrying a French baguette. The sound of people speaking French all around seamed to mix with the music almost intentionally.  As I stood at the foot of the Eiffel Tower I thought could I really ask for a better place to be photographing a couple in love? I had so much to work with that it was almost overwhelming. The architecture is so intricate. The winding river has so many beautiful bridges. Most of all, I was documenting the love and affection of a bride and groom. I was having a phenomenal time creating wedding photos for a fun couple in the city of love, and I was struck by how blessed I am. I have such an incredible job and I love it.  It is such an honor that couples invite me to document the romance, emotions, and the overall vibe of the day that they say “I do”. So… to all my couples whether you get married in Europe or in downtown Louisville, Thank You! It is a joy to serve you.

One more story about Paris. Last time, something that made my trip even more amazing was that on my flight over to Paris I found myself sitting next to Ellie, who by astounding coincidence was going to the same wedding.  In fact, she was dating the brother of the groom.  Although I went to France specifically to photograph someone else’s destination wedding, on my last night in Paris I was able to do an romantic session with Ellie and Edouard at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. A year later, I was given the opportunity to shoot her wedding on the West Coast. Here are just a few of my images from Paris. I’m so excited to be going again this summer!
