Alex and Katie’s Louisville Wedding

Rees-Nord_blog01
Here are just a few photos from Katie and Alex’s wedding. I had so much fun documenting their day. As a Louisville wedding photographer I absolutely love taking couples across the river to shoot with the city skyline. It’s worth the trip just for the pictures, but in this case it was right on the way. The ceremony was at Louisville’s St. Gabriel Catholic Church and the reception was at Kye’s in southern Indiana. Congratulations Alex and Katie! It was an honor to be a part of your day.

Amanda and Billy’s Louisville Engagement Session

Crush-Moore-Blog01

For Amanda and Billy’s engagement session we were out to get a more rustic look so we headed out into the countryside. It was a hot day, but that did not stop us from having a fun time creating these portraits. Amanda and Billy were quite adventurous as they walked through a field of freshly bailed hay, explored an old barn, leaned against horse fencing, walked a lush green trail, climbed beneath railroad trestles and tried to cool off as they played in a gentle creek. We decided to finish the session making some more urban images in another outfit downtown. Throughout all the adventures Billy and Amanda were affectionate and a bit playful. It was great taking some time to get to know them and as always I enjoyed creating beautiful and comfortable engagement portraits. As much as I enjoy getting to document wedding stories, I also love the slower pace of spending an afternoon with a couple doing an engagement session. Although the wedding day gets the album, often I find that just as many engagement images, if not more, make it up onto the walls of couples’ homes. There’s something about images that just show that you’re in love with each other that can make everyone viewing the picture smile. It is a great personal pleasure when I have had the opportunity to visit the homes of my previous clients and see photos from their wedding and engagement prominently displayed throughout their home. Some images capture moments and document events while others demonstrate realities like the fact that God has blessed you was such an incredible spouse. I hope these images will remind Amanda Billy of their love for one another for years to come.

Alex and Katie’s Louisville Engagement Session

Sunset Silhouette in Louisville KY
Creating sunset engagement photos in Louisville, or anywhere else for that matter, is both fun and a bit of a challenge. I chose to silhouette the couple for this first image just after the sun had set in the midst of the small puddles along the rocky shore of the Ohio River. There are so many options when it comes to creating beautiful Louisville engagement photography and as a Louisville photographer I always enjoy meandering through the city getting to know my clients before their wedding during their engagement session. Alex and Katie are a fun loving couple with excellent taste and playful personalities. We had such a good time together. Their Louisville engagement session had did all. The weather was gorgeous and these two fellow love while attending the University of Louisville together so, of course, we had to show off their Cardinal spirit. They suited up in their U of L red and we made our way to Papa John’s Cardinal stadium to do some pictures down on the 50 yard line. Next we went throughout the campus and the nearby St. James Court to create some other comfortable portraits. We shared a meal together and then crossed over the river to take pictures with the beautiful Louisville city skyline as a backdrop. Even though we had already had such a great session we decided we would try and see if we could get some sunset photos down at the Falls of the Ohio with the reflection in the puddles. Wow, the sunset silhouette in Louisville turned out spectacular. Again, is if the session had not already been filled with enough great images we thought we press our luck and try for one last night shot of the city and just then we were surprised by a fireworks show for the Louisville bats baseball game that started while we were along the water’s edge. After this eventful session I am so looking forward to Katie and Alex’s fast approaching wedding. I will see you two again soon!

Summer & Jason’s Engagement Session in Madison

Broadway Fountain Madison Indiana
The historic little town of Madison Indiana is a great place to photograph. I thoroughly enjoyed Summer & Jason’s Engagement Session in Madison Indiana. This quaint location is bustling most summer weekends with festivals and events so while it has quite a bit to offer any photographer, the amount of people in the background kept us away from walking down Main Street. Summer and Jason hung with me as we got some great photos. Of course we had to take some images downtown in front of the Broadway Fountain and over at the Lanier Mansion. The grounds of this historic mansion and wedding venue are small and simple, yet they are well manicured and maintain the historical classic look. We had much to work with as we walked around the estate that overlooks the Ohio River. Then we created some more images as we walked along the riverfront and through a neighborhood before heading up to the hills to get a bird’s eye view of the entire river valley. Next we took some time just to get to know each other better over some delicious Smokin’ Crows barbecue.  Jason and Summer are both delightful to spend time with. I enjoyed our conversation and can’t wait for their wedding this week! We finished the session along a beautiful creek with a large tunnel at the foot of what’s known as the Heritage Trail. Check out Summer’s balance in those heels on the creek rocks! The lighting was great as we created these Madison Indiana engagement photos.

Jennifer and Stephen’s Lexington Engagement Session

Scoggan-Orberson-Eng-Blog-12
As a Louisville and Lexington wedding photographer I love every opportunity I get to go photograph in the springtime.  For Jennifer and Stephen’s Lexington Engagement Session we were right in the heart of the University of Kentucky campus. The daffodils were showing all their glory along with many other trees that were in full bloom. The seemingly endless variety of blooms and blossoms across Kentucky make for beautiful pictures and having an attractive couple the just happens to be in love doesn’t hurt either. Jennifer and Stephen simply loved being together and it certainly shows in their photos. They are both big UK fans so they were rather excited that we were able to create some images inside UK’s Commonwealth Stadium and throughout Lexington. Most of all I enjoyed simply getting to spend some time with Jennifer and Stephen. It is such a joy getting to no my couples before their big day. Not only is it a chance for us to get acquainted and to create some great images, but also it serves as a low key warm-up to the wedding day and helps them to know that they we’ll be in good hands on the wedding day. After the photo shoot we enjoyed some sushi together which was excellent conclusion to a fun afternoon together. I am really looking forward to their wedding this fall. Thanks again for inviting me to be apart I’m one of the most important days of your life. It will be here before you know it!
