Chris and Nicole’s Louisville Wedding

As a Louisville and Lexington wedding photographer I get to shoot in many beautiful locations from the urban center to secluded Horse farms. Some wedding celebrations are all contained within one venue while others make use of several. For Chris and Nicole’s Louisville Wedding they chose some of the city’s most elegant settings. We started with the ladies getting ready at the historic Seelbach Hilton in the heart of downtown then we made our way to St. Louis Bertrand for the ceremony and lastly to the Henry Clay for the lavish reception. As a photographic story teller I thoroughly enjoy so many different aspects of each wedding because together they form the visual narrative of the day. One point in the day that I have to be a bit more creative about is the experience of each guest as they come into the elegantly decorated reception hall. When my clients are looking through their wedding album in the years to come I want them to remember their room prepared for the grand celebration. So much planning, attention to detail and effort had gone into the look of the room so I certainly wanted to show what everyone saw as they entered the room. Nicole chose to have a variety of centerpieces incorporating flowers, candles and a bit of bling. Everything looked fabulous and we even snuck Nicole and Chris in just moments before there guess entered the room so they could take in the ambience. I was glad they were kind enough to let me get the above image before the party got started. Of course there’re so much more to their day, but rather than riding on and on I think it would be best for you to just see the story. Congratulations Nicole and Chris!

Zach and Brittany’s Engagement Session

Here are just a few of Zach and Brittany’s Engagement photos in Madison Indiana that we did this Autumn. As a Southern Indiana wedding photographer an important part of my job is getting to know each of my couples and spending an afternoon together taking engagement photos is the perfect way for me to do so. For this Madison Indiana Engagement Session we were on the search for colorful fall foliage both on trees and on the ground. We were not disappointed. Our options seemed almost endless. I also loved Brittany’s hand made sign with their wedding date on it that she wants to use for her save-the-date. After we had enough images in the park it was time to go out to a vineyard to take some more romantic pictures.  I believe having an engagement session makes a momentous difference in capturing people being themselves on their wedding day. I call it an engagement session, but it is actually a kind of pre-wedding portrait session. It is a significant part of my work, and I include it with every wedding package I offer. Each of my couples are encouraged strongly to take advantage of the session because, it provides more romantic images of the couple, but it also benefits the wedding day tremendously. I tell all of my clients that it is for me, as much as it is for them, because I get to see how they interact with each other and with the camera. I get to know them and what to expect from them on the wedding day. For the couple it builds confidence and allows them to have a more stress free wedding knowing that they are in good hands. The engagement session functions as a very low-key, warm-up to the big day which translates to better wedding photos. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Zach and Brittany and I am looking forward to their wedding even more so now that we are better acquainted. We ended the evening by making our way down to waterfront across from the downtown Louisville where we enjoyed a meal together and took some images with the city lights as a backdrop.

Alexis and Matthew’s Louisville Wedding

Alexis and Matthew’s Louisville Wedding at the Hurstbourne Country Club was beautiful. There are lots of excellent venues for weddings in Louisville KY and one of my favorites as a Kentucky wedding photographer is at what they call The Ruins, found between the greens on the Hurstbourne golf course. The Ruins is a rock structure that resembles the facade of a old church building. The surrounding scenery for the ceremony was lush green trees and open fairways. As the guests made their way to the ceremony they first had to cruise in through the long beautiful drive winding through a tunnel of tall trees, then along a small stream and over an old stone bridge. In addition to this gorgeous setting, the clubhouse offers an elegant choice for Louisville wedding receptions. The old mansion has intricate ceilings and woodworking along the walls as well as an incredible staircase. I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with this couple. Matthew and Alexis are carefree and fun loving, but I already knew that after doing their Red River Gorge Engagement Session. He had asked her to marry him on a cliff with a scenic view in the gorge so they chose to do their session there as well. You should check it out! After the wedding ceremony we hopped in some golf carts and made our way around the property for a bit taking some portraits before we made our way to the reception. After a nice dinner the couple spent some time greeting their guests and then snuck away to practice their first dance. Alexis head agreed to marry Matthew under the sole condition that he was willing to take ballroom dancing classes before the big day. He certainly had put some work in and they did a fine job, complete with a big dip to finish and much applause. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to document their nuptials. Congratulations Matthew and Alexis!

Stephanie and Jason’s Whitehall Wedding

Stephanie and Jason’s Louisville Wedding at Whitehall was an elegant occasion.  As a Louisville wedding photographer serving Lexington and Louisville, I love every opportunity I get to come to this gorgeous estate.  Whitehall is a perfect venue for a garden wedding.  This gorgeous historic mansion reminds me of the White House, but without all the Secret Service agents.  The grounds include a beautiful long drive that makes quite an impression as guests arrive, as well as a perfectly manicured garden ideal for a wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. This Kentucky treasure is tucked away in the heart of St. Matthews.  Not only does each room of the mansion have a unique  look to it, but each one is filled with antique furniture, drapes and the like.  Its like stepping back in time and gives the wedding photos a truly nostalgic feel.  Stephanie looked absolutely stunning and seem to fit the sophisticated setting perfectly. After everyone finished getting ready we did some portraits in the garden and inside the house. Soon it was time to head back out to the garden where the guests had gathered to witness the exchanging of vows. The weather was comfortable for this intimate ceremony and the sun even burst through the clouds just as the wedding began.  While the guests enjoyed some hors d’oeuvres and spirits Jason and Stephanie took some family pictures and then were gracious enough to give me some time to walk around the grounds with them to take some relaxed and comfortable portraits.  It was an honor to document the details,  happenings and emotion of this day that they will never forget.  The reception tent looked fabulous and the guests enjoyed a delicious meal with Certified Angus Beef.  The dance floor was filled with a playful crowd that kept everyone laughing into the night.  It was a great day and I thoroughly enjoyed creating these wedding photos at Whitehall Louisville. Congratulations Jason and Stephanie!
