Behind the Scenes 2017

Alright, it’s that time of year again. The embarrassing behind the scenes photos of me on a wedding day. Haha. Wedding days are a whirlwind. So many things are happening.

Feature: Kentucky Bride Magazine

I’ve never really been a very goal-oriented person, despite as much as I’ve tried! It’s such a stretch for me. So when it comes to features, I just make it a part of my workflow to submit engagements and weddings pretty regularly. But it’s always been a dream to be published in a magazine. Last…

Behind the Lens: Being Authentic Online

The past few weeks I’ve seen post after post about being authentic online. I suppose it’s more of the Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon and not an actual increase in posts about authenticity, but I felt compelled to share my heart on this new subject.

Art of Photography: Why Different Lenses Matter

When it comes to photography, there are so many factors that make up an image. Generally, we see how things like the subject, background, editing, camera (phone vs. dslr), and maybe even light change pictures. But there is SO much more that goes what makes a photo look the way it does. One of those…

Christy: Mellwood Arts Center Louisville KY Headshots

One of the most fun, but also most difficult parts of moving is making new friends. As a true introvert, making friends is HARD. I do not like putting myself out there and doing the “small talk” thing. But it’s just something that has to happen to meet new people! But then, when you meet…

Album: Marcus & Samantha

In addition to wedding day coverage, I offer beautiful, timeless wedding albums. Marcus & Samantha chose to invest in a beautiful, linen album of their gorgeous preppy wedding day last summer. And now it will sit on their coffee table as they welcome a new baby into the world this fall. I love it! That is…
