JD Morgan and Emma Breitenbach

JD and Emma met their junior year of high school at the Governor’s Scholar Program, then they ended up going to the same college. But they didn’t start dating until their senior year at Centre College (which was the setting for this beautiful engagement session). On their one year anniversary of dating, they went to eat at Old Owl Tavern in Harrodsburg where they had their first date. After that they went to Pinot’s Palette for wine and painting with a group of friends. During a break from painting, the employees there picked Emma and JD and another couple to play Pictionary. During their turn, JD drew a couple of easy pictures and I guessed them. On the third round, he wrote “will you marry me?” and of course, she said yes! I hope you enjoy their engagement session and stay on the look out for their winter wedding blog post in a few weeks.

Mr. and Mrs. Hughes

August 10th, 2018 was predicted to be a rainy, hot day but the weather couldn't have been more perfect for the Hughes special day. The bridesmaids woke up in their matching lemon shorts and sparkly gold tops ready to get the day started. Hayden and Marlee, having known each other for almost 4 years, were reminiscing on going from friends, finances, to husband and wife in just 8 short months.  The ceremony venue was decked out with 26 people in the bridal party! The bridesmaids wore shades of purple from Lulus and the men wore navy suits and bowties. Hayden's tie complimented the theme with a purple floral pattern. Marlee wore a dress from the Steel Magnolia that was form fitting, lace, and had tons of pearls and sparkles. Each bridesmaid carried a bouquet of dried lavender, the smell was amazing!  The reception had beautiful, tall orchids from Rainbeau Orchids and gold sparkles incorporated everywhere. Drinks and desserts were offered and the dancing was definitely a requirement. As Hayden and Marlee said goodbye to their friends and ran under the sparklers, Hayden's dad mistakenly followed, such a funny ending to an even funner wedding.  This wedding also has a very special place in my heart because it was my very first wedding that was published in a magazine, it was published in Bridal Bliss Magazine.

Justin Adeokoya and Morgan Wiseman

Justin and Morgan first met each other in their freshman communication class at EKU. Justin would ask Morgan for gum every morning and then throw the wrapper at her and act like he didn’t do it. Morgan says, “his flirting game was a little weak, but I fell for it.” They continued to be friends and would have study dates in the library that later lead to real dates. Morgan loves to tell the story of how Justin proposed. He arranged for all their friends and family to come to Georgia (where Justin is from) to his God father’s lake house. They were “supposed” to be going on a date night, but just so happened to stop by the lake house to see his God father. The boat dock was decorated and had a chair. Morgan sat in the chair and Justin got down on one knee. Morgan says she honestly doesn’t remember what Justin said because she was in another world. But she said YES and then their family and friends came out on the upper deck of the house to celebrate! Morgan had told Justin it would be so cool to have both their families and friends in the same place to celebrate our engagement, and he made it happen. I hope you all love this sweet engagement session. Their wedding will be on the blog soon.

Mr. and Mrs. Campbell

Andrew and Breanna met in 2010 during their sophomore year of high school. They started dating toward the end of their junior year when Andrew FINALLY asked Breanna on a date, which was to go to the homecoming dance together. Andrew proposed by surprising Breanna by taking her to the restaurant where they always celebrate anniversaries. At the end of the meal, the waitress brought out a dessert plate with the date and a heart on it written in chocolate. He then got down on one knee and proposed. He even had a friend show up to take pictures (good job on the pictures Andrew). It rained on and off on their wedding day but it didn’t stop them from being so joyful thru their whole day. What a special time we had with Andrew, Breanna and their most favorite people.  Also as a side note this wedding was on September 22, 2018 and that day every year is always special to me because that’s my husband and I’s anniversary. We got married September 22, 2012.

Jonathan Saalfeld and Lindsay Brantley

This 2018 engagement session is one that photographer dreams are made of. We did this session at the beautiful Cherokee Park in Louisville, KY. The trees mixed with the beautiful golden sunlight made this session one for the books. Also Jonathan is one of the funniest grooms I’ve ever photographed and it made this session so fun. I hope you all enjoy, their wedding will be on the blog soon as they got married in April 2019.

Mr. and Mrs. Brown

Ryan and Elizabeth-Anne met at Aldersgate church camp. Elizabeth-Annes favorite thing about her groom is how he can always make her smile and laugh and how much he cares for others. He has a big heart! These two hope to always have fun with each other and go on adventures, they never want to stop enjoying life together. Ryan proposed on a sunset boat ride on the ocean in South Carolina, can you say dreamy. Their wedding was in Elizabeth-Annes parents backyard. But their backyard isn’t any backyard in Georgetown, KY, they have a small vineyard and a lot of space, it was perfect for their wedding. Elizabeth- Anne’s favorite part of the wedding was dancing with their friends and stepping away for a moment together to take the beautiful sunset photos. I hope you all enjoy this sweet intimate wedding.

Kelli Lynn Photography Film Intensive

I have been a photographer now full time for over 3 years but I have only ever shot digital (and will continue to do so), but I have always been interested in learning about film photography. I admire film photographers that I know so much and I think film photography is BEAUTIFUL. However, I knew I was going to need some major guidance. When Kelli (of Kelli Lynn Photography) posted about her Film Photography Intensive I decided this was the time to step out of my comfort zone and do something new and a bit scary. There were 6 photographers (including me) and Kelli at the intensive, and oh my word those ladies have been the most encouraging ladies ever. We spent the first few hours of the intensive talking about things involved with film photography and then we spent the second half doing some hands on film shooting. Y’all the shoot Kelli put together was STUNNING. I have listed the vendors below. These images are not perfect and I definitely have A LOT more to learn but after this class with Kelli I am going to try to learn and shoot more film in 2019, wish me luck. I hope you all enjoy this scary but oh so refreshing leap of faith I took last week.

Danville Kentucky was the dreamy backdrop for Mackenzie and Bradley's July "I dos." This couple had months to plan their perfect day, but the venue change the day before threw them for a loop! Nobody could have pulled in off as flawlessly as this perfect couple and their awesome bridal crew!     It's all in the details with this unique barn wedding. The ceremony arch was wrapped with white silk, eucalyptus, and beautiful flowers waiting for the even more stunning bride. Mackenzie wore a lace dress with a sweetheart neckline from David's Bridal and had a custom-made veil pinned in her curls. The bridesmaids (yes, there were a lot!) wore shades of green to compliment the grey suits worn by the groomsmen.     Bradley's reaction to Mackenzie walking down the aisle was so precious; all the family members were tearing up! The night was spent capturing every single sweet moment between the two of them. They made sure to include tons of time for dancing so the floor was filled with laughing and fun until the final send off. As everyone blew bubbles in the happy couples way, they drove off and started their lives together.
