Mike & Brittany: Spring Buffalo Trace Distillery Engagements

I know I’m not alone when I say I’ve been loving these occasional warm spring/summer-like days! Thankfully, Mike & Brittany had a flexible schedule and we were able to pick the warmest, prettiest day last week! The sun was out, the skies were blue, and it was well into the 70s! We met at Buffalo…

Austin & Abbie: Southern Bed & Breakfast Engagements

I know the months of November-March aren’t the most ideal for photos. The grass turns brown, the trees are bare, and of course, it’s generally COLD. But there is just something so lovely about wintertime, even without snow. The light is softer and more flattering because the sun doesn’t get quite as high in the…

Peter & Kathryn: Cherokee Park Door to Nowhere Winter Engagement

Most of us across the country are definitely feeling winter! It’s been cold EVERYWHERE. My scarves, thick socks, and winter coat have been getting a lot of use! On New Year’s Eve, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Peter and Kathryn to do their engagement photos. These two Californians braved the cold so…

Sam & Jessica: Henry Clay Estate Lexington KY Engagements

Autumn seemed to last so long this year and I am always on board for that. The leaves were brilliant yellows, oranges, and reds for a good portion of October and November, which made for many bright, color engagement sessions! I am so excited to share Sam & Jessica’s engagement session with you. We had been…

Jake & Emma: Fall Mount St. Francis Engagement

I met Jake & Emma earlier this year and got to hear the story of how they met. Jake was out with his work friends for a work Christmas party. Emma was out with her friends for an enjoyable night. Jake is a tall man, so Emma spotted him from across the room and immediately…

Elliott & Stephanie: Big Rock Park at Seneca Engagements

Earlier this year, I was able to explore a small part of Louisville with a friend from church as we visited Big Rock Park as part of the larger Seneca Park. I loved my time there taking in the natural beauty of Beargrass Creek and I thought to myself, I would love to photograph a…

Andrew & Kate: Frankfurt Ave and Cherokee Park Engagements

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…

Jon & Amanda: Mount St. Francis Engagement Session

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…
