Danielle and Hunter's winter wedding day was filled with their love for Christ and the spirit of Christmas. Danielle and her 14, yes 14, bridesmaids started the day at a huge, beautiful house in downtown Cincinnati. The amazing wood embellishments in the house popped in the background against the matching flannel bridesmaid pajamas. The groomsmen got ready at an AirBNB in Over the Rhine and it was equally as stunning.    The ceremony was held at Christ Church United which was decked out in Christmas decor and had a huge vaulted ceiling. Danielle and Hunter said, "I do" standing next to a huge christmas tree surrounded by a packed out sanctuary of people. The reception venue was so unique, The Mess Hall at Fort Thomas has been renovated to hold large weddings and facilitate the perfect wedding night.    The wedding details were captured by an amazing team. Hunter Rogers was the wedding coordinator and did such an amazing job, she inspired Danielle to pursue doing the same thing to help other brides! The video was captured by Morgan Price who always catches the sweetest, tear-jerking moments and I was lucky enough to take these wedding photos for Danielle and Hunter who are so near and dear to my heart!

Andrew Jansen and Blaire Barnhart

This snuggly winter engagement session took place in Midway, Kentucky. We hit all of Andrew and Blaire’s favorite places that have been very special to them during their dating and proposal. I don’t normally love winter engagement sessions because it’s so cold, but these two were SO fun (just look at all the giggles) and very sweet with each other, they made it worth every trip to the car to warm back up, haha. I hope you all enjoy these pictures and stay on the look out for their wedding that is happening later this summer.

Morgan and Justin had the perfect fall, barn wedding on October 20th, 2018. Farmstead at Shawnee Trails provided a great location for both the ceremony and reception. It was a chilly day, but I don’t think you can tell. The night ended in a stunning sunset that gave the bride and groom photos they will cherish for a lifetime.    Morgan started the day with mimosas and a gorgeous floral robe that complimented the florals her grandmother put together by hand! The brides wedding gown had a sweetheart neckline and sheer fabric with lace florals up to her collarbone. The dress was purchased at Meant to Be Boutique in Lexington, Ky. The bridesmaids wore maroon gowns that had sheer lace from their knee to their feet, I love the uniqueness of them!    Family means so much to Justin and Morgan and that was evident throughout the day. Morgan got embroidered handkerchiefs for all the special women in their lives and many tears were shed! She looked forward to the dance with her dad for such a long time and it was everything Morgan dreamed it would be! Justin and Morgan ended the night being celebrated out by all their loved ones.

Hunter Trenaman and Danielle Wade

We are taking it back to Fall 2018 when the Ginko trees on Catalpa were bloomed (for a short amount of time). I don’t always get to do sessions during this time because of how popular it is to do pictures on this famous Lexington road but I am so so happy Hunter and Danielle asked me to do their engagement pictures there last year. It may have been freezing, but I don’t think these two cared one bit. I will be posting their winter wedding so soon, until then enjoy this beautiful fall session.

The Bright wedding was a day full of color and celebration! From the bridal bouquet to the horses and stables, Ben and Laura had every detail planned perfectly. The bride had a bouquet full of dull pinks, warm oranges, and deep reds and maroons. She wore a beautiful lace, form fitting gown with a birdcage veil in her hair.    The bride and groom got married under a breathtaking four post canopy, at the brides family farm. Small vases with flowers adorned the canopy and hung over them as they said, "I do." My favorite part of the day were the bride and groom portraits after the ceremony. From their “tiny house”, Laura’s beautiful horse and the stunning sunset, what more could I have asked for on a wedding day as the photographer.    The couple's barn wedding was a classy take on the rustic look. It was decked out with greenery and small paper hangings all around the canopy. The caged lanterns and paper lanterns glowed all night until the couple ran out amongst the sparklers. I hope you all love this bright and color wedding as much as I do.

In my catching up from my 2018 weddings and engagements I’m getting to some fall engagmenets and although I am in no hurry for fall to be here just yet, this sweet session reminds me why I love fall. These two will be getting married later this year, in the fall. I hope you all enjoy their session and the beautiful golden light in the garden.

It’s not everyday that Cats fans from across Kentucky get to join together for a wedding! July 14, 2018 Scott and Cassie tied the knot in true Kentucky proud fashion. The ceremony at the beautiful Tates Creek Presbyterian Church sanctuary was followed by a reception at Kroger field!!    When they first started dating, Cassie quickly noticed Scott’s patience and his heart for all people. He fell in love with her caring heart and passions. They knew they’d be together forever after their first hang out. What started as studying, turned into a day of fun and memories.    On their wedding day, Cassie wore a beautiful Stella York gown from Twirl. My favorite photos are seeing the dress in action as Scott spins her around! Scott saw her for the first time that day when she walked down the aisle and tears were definitely shed! They wrapped up the wedding at the Woodford Reserve Room at Kroger field. DJ Warren peace was on the mic and everybody spent the end of the evening on the football field, which was so a fun and unique experience.
