How excited was I when Molly asked me to photograph her wedding?! She’s the sister of some good friend’s of mine, the Irwins. The wedding will be in Sandusky, Michigan at the end of July but Molly and Zach made a special trip to Kentucky for engagement photos. We went out to Shaker Village for some beautiful evening light and lovely Kentucky countryside. It was a perfect evening near 70 degrees in April. The celebration is almost here!

Andrew and Rachel: Lexington, KY Family Photographer

Taylor130

I’ve known Rachel for several years now. She’s been a photographer for over 15 years now and I met her when I first moved to Lexington. Full of life and spunk she’s worked some weddings with me and we’ve learned and had many good times together. People like her are so important to have when you work by yourself:)

I was honored to be able to shoot a session for her and her husband of 8 years, Andrew. It was a late fall, overcast/ rainy day but we braved the weather and headed out to Shaker Village for a fun morning shoot. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend a morning:) Thanks for all the good times and those to come!

It was such a joy to be able to spend a couple hours on a sunny afternoon with AShley and JD. I photographed JD’s sister’s wedding a couple years earlier. He has the sweetest sister in the world and such a great family! He and Ashley go well together. Such a fun-spirited couple. They recently moved to St. Lois and enjoyed having their dear Lexington in the background of their engagement images. Their destination wedding next year will be a joyous occasion!

Alison and Justin127

I’m quite excited to capture this couple’s wedding. They are practically family:) I photographed Justin’s brother’s wedding 3 years ago and now I get to see him begin a family. Alison and Justin are a sweet, fun-loving couple. They chose Shaker Village as the place to have their engagement photographs. Alison is from Chicago so it’s only fitting we try and get some of the scenes that make Kentucky so beautiful in their images. They’ve chose the Kentucky Horse Park as the location for their March wedding. I can’t wait and it will be here before you know it!

Engaged: Courtney & Nick; Lexington, Kentucky Engagement Photography

 

Courtney and Nick154

She’s from California. He’s from Wisconsin. It’s the horse industry in Kentucky that brought these two together. Their mutual love for horses brought Courtney here to study and Nick for a job. They both met working for facilities in the area. Being a rider myself, I couldn’t have been more excited to photograph them with Courtney’s horse, Dream! She’s such a beautiful dapple buckskin. Dream and Nick’s horse, Bill, will both be a part of their Shaker Village wedding in May. It will be a lowly ceremony indeed!

I couldn’t have been more excited to photograph this couple at Shaker Village! Stephanie and Zach drove to Lexington, Kentucky from Cincinnati for a mid-morning engagement photography session- 10:00. I’ve known Stephanie for many years. She’s my good friend’s little sister:) We went to church together when I lived in Ohio. Now she’s all grown up and found the man of her dreams- Zach. Such a blessing to see them together.

Leah and John; as sweet as pie and country as can be. Both are the kind of people you know within a few minutes you’re going to be good friends. How perfect to have an engagement photography session in the Kentucky countryside for this down-to-Earth couple. They chose Pisgah Pike Church.  John even shined up his dear Chevy pick up just for the occasion! Can’t wait to be your wedding photographer in July!

Amber and Derek met me at Shaker Village for a beautiful evening engagement session. It’s one of the most beautiful places near Lexington for a photography session. It was March so the air was cool but the sunshine was nice and warm. Such a fun-loving couple! They even brought their cute little pup- Brody! I’m looking forward to their September wedding!

RoccioAndNate030

 

Roccio and Nate moved to Lexington, Kentucky recently. She’s from Miami and he’s from Georgia. Love has found them both settling in the bluegrass for a season. They will marry in Roccio’s native, Florida, but chose Lexington for their engagement photography. They wanted to show things that were very “Lexington” so they chose Keeneland, the Kentucky Theater and Thoroughbred Park. What a fun and lovely couple to spend an afternoon with! Congratulations on your upcoming marriage!
