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!

These two have a love for one another, their families, friends, and God like no other, and that was overwhelming evident in their wedding day. From the start, Kate was calm and relaxed with her priorities on others making sure her…

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…
