Caleb+Ashton | Kentucky Engagement

Where do I begin? Ashton and Caleb are just the most gorgeous couple ever! I had so much fun at their session, I didn't want it to end! They are just so in love and they totally worked it in front of the camera! I first met Ashton and Caleb when I took their Prom photos when Ashton was only a JUNIOR in high school! I then got to form an even better friendship with her when she chose me to do her Senior photos. Which of course she included Caleb in most of the sessions!! Who would blame her? Look how sweet they are!!! He proposed to her in the sweetest way and it wasn't but a few days later when we got the best news that she wants this crazy duo to be her photography team on her wedding day! Ashton, Caleb, we can't wait to watch your journey to bride and groom unfold and we hope the Lord blesses you all with nothing but happiness.

Mr. + Mrs. Andrew Mattmiller | Kentucky Ballroom Wedding

Meagan and Drew, Not only was your wedding stunning but it was equally fun. From start to finish the day was quite a dream. We began with a relaxing morning sipping coffee and hanging with the beautiful ladies, had a great afternoon exploring gorgeous Pulaski county (Our home town) with the lovely couple, and closed the evening with a booming dance party starring the coolest band in all of LEXvegas, SUPERFECTA. We hope you enjoy this peek into your Best. Day. Ever. And we wish the two of you endless years of love and happiness.

Mr. + Mrs. Justin Kearney | Historic Shelby Manor of Arcadia Farms

Justin and Jessica, From start to finish your day was beautiful. The venue, the dress, the food, the music - we could go on and on but instead we will let these images do the talking. Enjoy this peek into your dream day and we wish nothing but the best for the two of you on this journey called marriage.

Mr. + Mrs. Michael Ping | The Barn at RedGate

Michael and Aleshia, your day was a perfect representation of the love you share for one another. It was so obvious through out the entire process how much your friends and family love the both of you. Watching you become a family of THREE on this beautiful fall day was a complete joy. We couldn't get enough of seeing Gracii help her daddy get ready for his BIG day, and to see Gracii slip on Aleshia's dress and say "I feel pretty". From tears of happiness, smiling from ear to ear to belly laughing from Michael singing (more like screaming) Taylor Swift with us in the car, your day was unforgettable and beautiful in everyway. We thoroughly enjoyed having the honor to freeze in time one of the most important days of your lives. We look forward to watching you two take on life together and watching your sweet little girl grow up to be an extraordinary young lady. Enjoy this peek into your big day.

Mr. + Mrs. Robert Bickle | The Club at UK Spindletop Hall

Rob and Akiko, Words can't describe the beauty of your day. From the first swipe of make up placed on Akiko's face until you ran out to that gorgeous Bentley surrounded by YOUR people waving YOUR colors it felt like a dream (pinch us?). I don't know if we believe in "destiny" but if we did, that would be what brought us together (or Kentucky Bride Magazine for the less dramatic crowd) either way we are incredibly thrilled it happened! We were honored beyond belief to be included in such a huge way on such an important day in your lives and we wish many magical years of bliss as Mr. And Mrs. Bickle. Congrats and enjoy this peek into your big day! UK might have lost but we know two people who scored BIG.

Brandon+Elise | Kentucky Engagement

In our opinion, the best locations in Kentucky are the ones you find when you take “the road less traveled”. Elise and Brandon got to experience one of my “Hey, just trust me!”, “Lets go explore!”, “Uhh..Ignore that, but look over there!” engagement session adventures. When I have a couple that’s so trusting of my process it’s one of the most freeing things as a photographer! Shooting in the same city most of the time can become tough, so I like to get adventurous sometimes and take a backroad with my couples and just hop out of the car!
When they told me they were going to be bringing along their furry little one for the adventure I couldn't have been more excited! He was the perfect addition to their beautiful summer engagement! Seeing these two just hang out and enjoy spending some quality time nuzzling up makes me so happy to do what I do.
Brandon and Elise, we are so excited for your 2018 wedding! Thank you for choosing this crazy duo as your wedding photography team!

Mr. and Mrs. Heck | THE BARN AT REDGATE

     Faith, Friends and Family are the words we would choose if we had to summarize JD and Bethany's perfect Kentucky wedding day. From start to finish their day was the epitome of perfection. All day we witnessed not only the obvious love the bride and groom shared for each other but also the love, appreciation, and happiness that friends and family had for their favorite couple. This was a happy day not only here on earth but also in heaven as we feel certain JD's momma watched him marry the love of his life with a great big beautiful smile full of pride and approval knowing that he chose the type of woman she always prayed he would find. Thank you so much to both of you for having us along to document one of the sweetest days we have experienced. We wish you the best in this life and hope all your dreams came true in the magical world of Disney

Logan + Rachel | Lexington, KY Engagement

       When Rachel contacted me about their engagement session she wanted to incorporate one thing... SUNFLOWERS! The only problem was is that we were about a week or two late to the sunflower party and the only sunflower field we found was gated with no access... Yeah you can imagine how bummed we were. Why keep such beauty locked away from random strangers?!?! haha So we improvised we chose to add in a small bouquet of her favorite florals and ran with it!! Turns out, it was the perfect touch to add to their already intimate morning engagement in Lexington! (Those sunflower ring shots though... HEART EYES everywhere) Getting up early and taking advantage of all the beautiful places LEX has to offer before the busy crowds take over was definitely the right idea! Rachel and Logan, you all were so incredibly adorable and we can't wait for your big day next year! 

Zach+Giuliana | Kentucky Farm Engagement

When we talked about where to do their engagement session, they mentioned doing it at Zach's Family farm. I had no idea it was going to be this beautiful. Even though we were a little nervous about the weather, it turned out to be a gorgeous day. I pulled up to a family farm with a fields of corn, tall grass, soy beans, barns, creeks and a lovely house with a GORGEOUS view. (Can we ask for anything more? I think not.) Zach grew up playing all over this land and helped his dad and his grandfather farm it. (check out the tractors in some of the shots below! They belong to Zach's father and grandfather) We explored the most beautiful spots together, driving around on their side by side, and I fell in love with the meaning of this place. I also fell in love with this couple! I adored the way that Zach and Giuls simply were together. It’s hard to put it into words. They seemed so comfortable with one another –   They were at ease, natural, comfortable, fun, full of joy, and fully themselves. It’s this old kind of love that makes me confident that their marriage will be so sweet and rooted in real love

 

Mr. + Mrs. Josh Parrott | Kentucky Ballroom Wedding

   The only thing more beautiful than Josh and Allison's day was the love that they so obviously share for one another. From The first curl fashioned in Allison's hair until the last sparkler was snuffed out, there was nothing but love, laughter, and lots of dancing (these people can move!) Some of the simplest and smallest details of this day have to be some of our favorites. We loved seeing Allison hanging with her mom and all of her best girls in the hotel room singing, dancing and just in awe of Allison's wedding day glow! We ADORED Josh's wedding band which just so happens to be Allison's great grandfathers. We teared up when Allison cried watching from afar as Josh got into position for their first look. (How Sweet is that?!) We love that Josh's socks match his last name...(Clever thinking on his part). And Lastly, At the end of the night, everyone is dancing and having a great time at the reception and you look in the middle of the dance floor and you see Josh and Allison alone in their own world talking to one another.. who knows what was said, maybe how beautiful she looks, maybe how much fun their having, maybe how incredibly sweet Josh was all day... We may never know, but what we do know is that this day was unforgettable and #WEDDINGDAYGOALS for sure!
Thank you so much Allison and Josh for having this crazy duo along for one of the biggest most important days of your lives; it was such an honor. We wish you the sweetest love for the rest of your days
