Will and Kris’ DuBois Portrait Session

I love autumn in Western Pennsylvania. The weather is so delightful that everyone wants to be outside. As a DuBois Pennsylvania photographer, I have so many incredible locations to use for photos when the leaves start to change. Engagement photography in DuBois PA is always beautiful, but even more so in the Fall. I love all the different colors in the trees and all the textures of leaves on the ground. Everywhere I look I see red, yellow, orange and even some subtle purple and pink. When the fall leaves are just right my schedule fills up quickly. Whether I’m shooting a portrait session along the Clarion river, a DuBois wedding, a Western Pennsylvania engagement session or some other photo shoot in the countryside somewhere between, if it’s fall, it’s time for pictures, pictures, pictures. Here is yet another. I had a great time with Will and Kris for a comfortable autumn session along with their dogs Norman and Walter. We spent the afternoon meandering through a park for this DuBois Portrait Session. We took some portraits in the woods and along paths. We created more images on bridges and of course we had to run and play with the dogs in an open field. Atop a hill we had a view of all the different autumn colors in the distance. I also love the bright red and orange tree we did some comfortable portraits right next to. Will and Kris are a fun loving couple and I thoroughly enjoyed our time together. Norman and Walter were pretty awesome as well with their bow ties.

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

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.
