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!

James and Sonja’s Wedding

James and Sonja’s wedding was so fun to photograph. As a Louisville wedding photographer, I always appreciate ceremonies at are held in the church the couple is the part of. Sonja grew up in this church and their minister was her former pastor, who now serves as a missionary on the other side of the world. They were so excited and honored that he could be a part. The ceremony was distinctly Christian, honoring God and proclaiming the distinctions of Christian marriage. The tent reception took place at a private residence out in the country just outside of Louisville. Many in attendance were members of the church and even among the others there seemed to be such a sense of Christian unity. They were certainly there to celebrate the union of James and Sonja, but also there was also a clear recognition that this wedding, and marriage in general, is a symbol of the much greater union between Jesus Christ and His bride, the church. Children were in abundance and heartily welcomed with a whole table of legos and coloring pages. Outside the tent kids and some adults enjoyed playing games. The comfortable, yet classy celebration had many guests joyfully lingering in conversations for hours. Their cake topped with berries looked absolutely delicious, but I was so busy I never got a bite… I’ll survive. It was an honor to document this wedding celebration. I’m so thankful to all of my clients for inviting me into one of the most important days of their life. Congratulations James and Sonja and may your marriage last a lifetime!

Jennifer and Anthony’s Seelbach Wedding

Iles-Hampton-Blog01
As a Louisville wedding photographer I always enjoy creating images at the historic Seelbach Hotel in the heart of the city. Jennifer and Anthony’s Louisville Seelbach Wedding was absolutely gorgeous. The ceremony took place at St. Matthews Episcopal Church and then everyone made their way downtown to the the Seelbach for the reception. Jennifer’s excellent taste was evident throughout the entire day. She looked stunning in her dress and she made my job easy. Jennifer’s bridesmaids took time to sign the bottom of her shoes in the midst of all of the getting ready activities. Jennifer had lots of fun matching gifts for her bridesmaids and flower girls including monogramed robes, flip-flops and tumblers with their name. She also made sure that Anthony’s cufflinks we’re engraved with their initials and wedding date. They opted to take a picture holding hands before the ceremony without seeing one another. (You could tell both of them enjoy just hearing one another’s voices.) There ceremony and exchanging of vows was filled with much emotion. Once they were officially hitched it was time to enjoy the lavish wedding reception and one of Louisville’s most beautiful hotels. It was so fun creating these Seelbach wedding photos. The Crystal ballroom looked absolutely amazing thanks to Ellen Fox from ShaFox Wedding and Events and Alex & Paul from Fleur de Lis. I was honored to be apart of this exciting celebration. Congratulations Jennifer and Anthony!
