A Richwood on the River outdoor wedding Louisville KY None of us knew what 2020 would bring. For Neil & Kaylee, they got engaged and planned for a beautiful 2020 May wedding. Unfortunately, circumstances forced them to postpone to June, but oh my what the perfect day it was. A Richwood on the River outdoor wedding […]

Hello blogging world! I am back! I’ve taken a few years off to have babies (yes, multiple babies if you didn’t know!), but that’s a whole other blog post. This post is all about Tanner & Celeste and their incredible colorful Churchill Downs wedding day. I see so much of myself and my husband Matt […]

The Gardencourt was the perfect spot for their #Brunetsoi·rée with its incredible architecture, lovely gardens, and old world charm. The history geek in me loves all the historical/vintage venues. Kathryn’s dress literally made me giddy and the fact that she was ecstatic to just twirl and enjoy her dress makes her my kind of gal! Peter gave his groomsmen custom engraved pocket watches, which is one of the neatest groomsmen gifts I’ve seen. The flowers were perfect, the food was tasty, the weather was awesome, and the dancing was on point!

Jon & Amanda have an enchantingly kind quality about them that just poured over into every aspect of their wedding day: the stunning old mansion, lovely flowers, family-filled wedding party, personal touches, and sweet, sweet interactions. It was just a wonderful day that I know I won’t forget anytime soon!

Off-Season 2021

Karyn Johnson Photography has officially entered the off season! It’s always a bitter-sweet time. I love my job and photographing weddings, but a break is always welcome! The off-season break is extra special these days with two little girls at home. Getting to spend the holidays with them and extended family is for sure one […]

Josh & Jessica: Lost River Cave Fall Wedding

From the moment Josh & Jessica booked last year, I fell in love with them as a couple. They are two of the kindest and sweetest people. Every time we chatted, I felt like I was talking with old friends. We talked kids, home renovations, food, family, all the things! I adored meeting their children […]

The Pointe Wedding Louisville KY

The Pointe Louisville KY Wedding As I was beginning this wedding day at The Pointe in Louisville KY, I noticed something. Kellsy left no detail untouched. She put her and Tommy’s stamp on each and every element of this beautiful, joyful, unique day. We joked with Tommy that he was great at wedding planning. But […]

Josh & Jessica: Falls of the Ohio State Park Engagements

Weddings definitely steal a lot of the show in the photography world, but sometimes engagement sessions do too and that’s this one. The location combined with how absolutely sweet Josh & Jessica are together makes this one of my favorite sessions. I loved getting to know them (and their kids!) and finding sturdy rocks to […]

Andrew & Kate: Summer Mount St. Francis Maternity Session

The maternity season is so fleeting even though in the moment, especially the last 6ish weeks, it feels like forever. I love getting to help friends remember this brief time when the anticipation of meeting your newest love is high and the discomfort may be even higher, haha. A woman’s body is remarkable and in […]

Life Update August 2021

It has been A WHILE, to put it very lightly, since I’ve blogged. Let alone a personal blog! I think my last personal blog was about being pregnant in 2018. Wow! So long ago. For those who don’t know, but I’m 99.9% certain everyone knows, Valerie was born in September 2018 and then Irene joined […]

Conard & Natalie: Gheens Foundation Lodge Louisville KY Wedding

Here in Louisville, June was SO rainy. The week of Conard & Natalie’s wedding it rained every day except their wedding day! What a blessing! It was a beautiful day. It was definitely warm and Conard and his groomsmen (+ the man of honor) were all such troopers staying outside for photos in the heat. […]

Journey to Parenthood – Part 3

With less than 2 weeks until our due date, this last post of our journey to parenthood series couldn’t be more fitting. Pregnancy for me has looked a little different than a lot of women. In Part 1, I talked about how motherhood just wasn’t something I wanted for a long, long time. And because […]

August 20, 2008 – That First Day

Her Heart is Glad is my personal blog that stems from my college days. I updated that blog pretty regularly for 4 years and even a little post college and in my early newlywed days. I love putting my fingers to the keys and just typing about personal topics. I’m not able to do that as […]
