David & Kelsey are getting married!

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!
Congratulations to both of you!

Rachael and Matt’s Wedding

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.

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.
