Ethan and Miranda’s Bell Court Wedding

Between the high temperatures throughout August and the rapid onset of winter, it seemed like we had just a few perfect fall days this year. Ethan and Miranda’s wedding happened to be on one of them. The wedding was in our neighborhood… our neighborhood being where Ethan grew up and where I currently live. ItContinue reading “Ethan and Miranda’s Bell Court Wedding”

Elizabeth and Andrew’s August Lexington Wedding

“When I saw you in that dress, looking so beautifulI don’t deserve this, darling, you look perfect tonight” As she walked down the aisle toward Andrew, I turned for just a moment and watched him take a few deep breaths and close his eyes for long second.

It was just the two of them, locked in embrace and slowly swaying in the middle of the otherwise empty dance floor. There were no guests circled around recording this moment. No proud parents.

Steph and Andrew’s Nostalgic Fall Engagement Session

Cinnamon. Pumpkins. Cider. Apples. I often suggest that couples choose locations that are meaningful to them, not simply ones that are a pretty backdrop.

It makes everything seem just thatContinue reading “Elizabeth and Dustin’s Lake Cumberland Engagement Session”
