Churchill Downs Wedding KY

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 3

With less than 2 weeks until our due date, this last post of our journey to parenthood series couldn’t be more fitting. Pregnancy for me has looked a little different than a lot of women. In Part 1, I talked about how motherhood just wasn’t something I wanted for a long, long time. And because […]

August 20, 2008 – That First Day

Her Heart is Glad is my personal blog that stems from my college days. I updated that blog pretty regularly for 4 years and even a little post college and in my early newlywed days. I love putting my fingers to the keys and just typing about personal topics. I’m not able to do that as […]

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.

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 […]
