Paul & Ali: Willett Distillery Styled Engagements

Nestled in the outskirts of Bardstown, KY, surrounded by rolling hills is the Willett Distillery. It’s a quaint bourbon distillery with decades of history. I had no idea the legacy and tradition of Kentucky bourbon before I became a resident. But, the Willett family and family friends Paul & Ali enjoy and appreciate good bourbon. And when choosing where they wanted to do their engagement photos, Willett was at the top of their list!

Paul & Ali live in Louisville and love adventures. And adventure around the Willett property, we did! The Willett staff was SO accommodating and friendly as they showed us the rickhouse and distillery; I learned so much! Haha.

Not only was it just a fun place, but Paul & Ali are two of the kindest, coolest people. I loved getting to know them and chatting about friendships, travels, and their absolutely adorable pup Penny! If we’re being honest, she kind of stole the show, though Ali in her amazing navy lace sheath dress and incredibly camp set-up were a close second. 🙂

This session is definitely one of my favorites to date. It’s full of beautiful scenery, a lively dog, lovely props, and a crazy-in-love couple. I told Paul & Ali at their session that it’s seeing couples like them that keep me motivated and inspired. I love watching people in love and there is no doubt in my mind that these two weren’t made for each other.

So, instead of me rambling on and on being all sappy and gushy, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves! I loved too many, so this is a longer post…. sorrynotsorry. 😉
