Engaged: Barb and Scoot; Lexington, KY Engagement Photography

Barb and Scott138

You can’t be unhappy and skip at the same time. Neither can you be around Barb and Scott and be unhappy at the same time. With Scott’s infectious laugh and Barb’s constant smiles they are a couple full of joy. I couldn’t have been more delighted to spend a few hours with them. I found early on Barb and I have a unique connection! She is studying to get her Phd for dairy science at UK and I grew up on a dairy farm. How excited was I when she asked if we could do some engagement photos on the UK dairy property? I’ve experienced a lot of things over the years as a photographer but I’d never had a calf nibble on my gear until that evening:) Time well spent! Can’t wait for their wedding in a couple weeks!

I couldn’t have been more excited to photograph this couple and their daughter. Sarah has been in front of my lens before. She was a bridesmaid for her sister’s wedding I photographed three years ago. I’m so excited to see her family again for their May wedding!

Engaged: Cassie and Brian; Lexington, KY Engagement Photographer

Cassie and Brian221

Cassie invited me to come to her farm north of Georgetown for engagement photos and family photos of her and Brian. I knew it’d be beautiful there but I had no idea it’d be so quaint and rolling. With an old house and barn that over looked towering hills, valleys and a creek I was in heaven. The golden autumn even ing sunshine kissed each image with a romantic glow. We took the gator through wooded areas, thorny fields and high hills. So fun! One of my favorite sessions yet!

Engaged: Dana and Mark; Lexington, KY Engagement Photography

Dana and Mark 146

Dana and Mark flew in from Florida just for the session. We had to re-schedule their Saturday morning shoot for Sunday at Keeneland due to a monsoon that morning! Dana is from Lexington and had met Mark in Florida where she works. They’ve been friends for years and the friendship has blossomed into a lasting, deeper love.

Engaged: Sarah and Brandon; Lexington, KY Engagement Photographer

Sara and Brandon127

It was the perfect fall evening for photos. We had to reschedule from the downpour in the previous week. I’d probably done 4 family sessions in the two weeks leading up to their session. I love children but after working to get suitable family photos with several kids 2 years old and younger- working with their dog Griffey was a breeze!!

Sara and Brandon’s engagement session had to be one of my favorites. Not only because it was at the beautiful Shaker Village outside of Lexington, but because we found a big field of sunflowers!! It’s ever gal’s dream to photograph in a field of sunflowers:)

Engaged: Morgan & John; Lexington, Kentucky Engagement and Wedding Photography

Morgan and John 083

I had the best time with Morgan and John at Shaker Village! It’s my favorite location outside Lexington, Ky. They were so full of joy and I think so much of that joy came from each other. They are a couple that just wants to be together- like best friends:) Sessions go so much smoother when the man actually has a good time taking photos. (Ok, I know it’s not a big “guy thing” to want to have your picture taken. The thought can be a real drag I’m sure! But hey guys- you get to be near and snuggle up next to your gal, the woman of your dreams!) John was a complete trooper and I think he may have enjoyed the time we all three spent taking pictures together. That makes for better images. The couples reactions were so sweet and true toward each other. The couples wedding will be in April in Frankfort and I’m so excited to be responsible for their wedding photography. :)

Engaged: Holly and Chase; Danville, KY Engagement Photography

Holly and Chase 136

It was tremendously humid and we were in a race to beat the ominously dark clouds to the distant west. Holly and Chase were all smiles for their engagement session in Danville. We spent part of the session on the campus of Centre College where they met. After a set change, we ventured to the picturesque downtown area of Danville!

Tanya & Jonathan: Lexington, KY Engagement Photography

I think we had such a great time during Tanya and Jonathan’s engagement session we all lost track of time! We shot all over downtown Lexington, even after the sun went down. From the Opera House and Children’s Museum to a view with Rupp Arena in the background and Due to Jonathan living hundreds of miles away until a couple months before the wedding, we didn’t take their photos until June. That made for a warm evening of fun!

Haley & Michael: Lexington, KY Engagement Photography

Haley and Michael 007

I absolutely LOVE weddings I get to photograph when I’ve done a sibling’s, groomsmen’s or bridesmaid’s wedding. It’s almost like going to a family reunion- not that I’ve ever really been to a reunion. It’d definitely be something like that though. It’s wonderful to see people I know and they know me so even though I’m working I’m treated with the hospitality of a guest. It’s just the best of times. Of course I was delighted when Haley sent me an email about 2 months before her wedding with concerns about her current photographer. She knew it was late in the game but since I had photographed her sister’s wedding in December she thought she’d give it a shot and ask if I had her and Michael’s date open. Just so happens it was my last open June date! We quickly scheduled an engagement session in Georgetown at Yuko-En on the Elkhorn, one of the couple’s favorite date spots when Haley was at Transylvania. Such a fun couple; best friends and soul mates.:)
