Spring has arrived and as a Louisville wedding photographer that means weddings season is here. My first wedding of the year is just over a week away. I can’t wait! 🙂 Of course, before the big day arrives I love taking my clients out to do engagement sessions. This serves as a casual and relaxed time to make some great images and for us all to get to know one another. For Jennifer and Anthony’s engagement session we started out in the countryside surrounding Louisville and then worked our way downtown to get the city skyline across the river as a backdrop. We finished the afternoon with a nice meal together. I love getting to spend time with my clients before their big day. It’s exciting to hear about all the plans for their wedding and to see how they interact with one another. When the three of us all get acquainted with one another it helps everyone to feel more comfortable on the wedding day. I have a peek into their lives and see some of their personalities and they know more of what to expect on the day they say “I do!” Of course, they also get beautiful photos of the two of them. It documents the engagement season of their life and after they see them it adds that extra bit of confidence that lets them realize that they know they will be in good hands on the day of their wedding. I am glad they took the time and I am so looking forward to seeing Jennifer and Anthony tied the knot.
Today marks the 15th anniversary of David Blair Photography. It was 15 years ago that I photographed my very first wedding. The above photo was taken on B&W film with a small entry-level camera. I had a blast that day and have been ever since. So much has changed since then. Now I have an incredible wife, 4 rambunctious little kids and lots of camera equipment. Some things have not changed, like the fact that I’m always out shooting, but now I have so many more options. I get the pleasure of using some of the industry’s most advance equipment and also I provide my clients with some of the absolute finest products such as elegant leather wedding albums and modern coffee table books. In recent years, as a Louisville wedding photographer I have been blessed with the opportunity to photograph weddings not only here in Louisville and throughout Kentucky, but from coast to coast and internationally as well. I also have been honored to have my photos featured in magazines locally, nationally and abroad. I have so much to be grateful for! I love that I get to capture distinctive pictures that bring couples back to the wonderful moments they will treasure for years to come. I praise God for allowing me to have a job I so much enjoy doing. I’m also so thankful to my clients who let me step into one of the most important days of their lives.
