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!

Journey to Parenthood – Part 2

Part 1 of this series of our journey to parenthood was all about my heart and lack of desire for motherhood, but also how that changed after a whole lot of prayer and petition to the Lord. This second part is completely different! As the Lord changed my heart to desire to be a mom […]

Journey to Parenthood – Part 1

It’s been a few months since we made our big life update announcement about Baby Johnson’s arrival. It seems like 2018 has been flying by, but also slowing down as September approaches (and as my belly grows). I mentioned in that previous post that I wanted to blog a little bit about our “journey to […]

Austin & Abbie: Small Town Southern Blush Wedding

It’s an honor to photograph every wedding, but it’s especially sweet when you’ve actually had a ringside sit to watch the bride and groom’s relationship form and grow. I’ve known Abbie basically forever and I adore her entire family. They are a HUGE reason I’m a photographer today! And so to finally watch her and […]

Elliott & Stephanie: Lost River Cave Bowling Green KY Wedding

From the moment I met Elliott & Stephanie, I knew their wedding was going to be one to remember!

Ryan & Madalyn: Big Spring Country Club Wedding

Ryan & Madalyn kicked off my May wedding season in the most beautiful, classy way last weekend. Big Spring Country Club was such a pretty location for their ceremony and I loved that they carried on a long-standing family tradition of marrying at Our Lady of the Lourdes. Generations of Madayln’s family have tied the knot […]

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 […]
