Each couple that I’m meeting in Louisville makes me enjoy this city more and more! This year I’ve photographed couples at an antique store, in a cow pasture, playing ukuleles, and exploring a distillery. This session adds two more fun locations to my list: a book store and ice cream shop! Andrew & Kate met…

As a married woman, I love meeting and watching other marrieds interact. Josh and Amanda are no exception! Amanda is so fun and goofy (she’d take that as a compliment, I promise 🙂 ) and Josh is more reserved. And together, they have a joyful, laughter-filled relationship that I enjoyed getting a glimpse of. This…

When I think of a July wedding in southern Indiana, I think of heat and sweat. But July 29th was not a day like that. It was a mild mid 80’s with low humidity and a nice breeze. It was literally the perfect day without a cloud in the sky. Combine that with the gorgeous…

There is so much I want to type about this wedding, but it’s so hard to type when I’m not supposed to use my bummed finger (more about that tomorrow!). But this wedding was so special and near and dear to my heart. I had the honor of photographing Greg & Sarah Beth’s wedding back…

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. I guess for me there are two types of authenticity: being real about my…

“Karyn, now that you’re married and are several years down the road, what would you change about your own wedding?” I get this question with nearly every new couple I talk to and it’s a good one! I’m fortunate to have a unique position of both being a former bride AND a wedding professional. I’ve…

One of the unique qualities of Louisville is that it’s right on the border of Indiana. And it’s not just any state border, Southern Indiana is beautiful. For what this part of Kentucky lacks in hills and mountains, Southern Indiana makes up for it! As soon as you cross the Ohio River, there are rolling…

The more I see of Kentucky, the more I love this beautiful Bluegrass State. Initially when we moved here, I was disappointed that I didn’t see rolling hills or mountains and farm land. But just a short drive up I71 brings you to the most gorgeous little town: Glencoe. High school sweethearts Travis & Kristy met…

A tale as old as time. Boy meets girl and falls head over heels. He knows she’s the one so over time he writes her letters. But Justin did something unique with his letters. Each contained a physical single letter written in invisible ink spelling out “Dear Sonya, will you marry me?” And that’s where Justin…
