The Day of 50 Dresses

I am so excited to be teaming up with The Steel Magnolia Bridal Shop once again! On Tuesday, March 21st, we will be photographing all of her dresses! It’s going to be an amazing project, and I can’t wait to get my creative juices flowing after winter!

I am planning to go LIVE on Facebook throughout the day. Stay updated by following my Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/KristenDPhotography/!

We will have about six models, 50 dresses, and I’ll be exhausted after. Haha! It will be so worth it, though! Here are a few photos from the last shoot we did together. Megan will be modeling for us again!

Thanks for reading! Stay tuned as we prepare for this fun project! -Kristen D.


A Special Day

My sister has always wanted a simple wedding or an elopement. Honestly, I expected to get a phone call one day with her announcing her marriage. I got the call, but she had set a date within the very near future. I was so excited to be able to capture these memories for her and Isaac. Welcome to the family Isaac!

I love these two so much, and wish them a very happy marriage! Congratulations, Ashley & Isaac!

Love,

My Silhouette Obsession

Okay, next to twirling brides, this may be my next favorite. I LOVE SILHOUETTES! There’s just something mysterious and romantic about a silhouette. I especially love this technique with a sunset! Here are a few of my faves from 2016!

2016 has been a wonderful year for my business. I still have a few dates in the Summer of 2017 available, but they are going fast! Click here to contact me for availability! Tell me your favorites below in the comments! Thanks for reading!

Jamie & Daniel- Wedding Photography in Lexington, KY

Jamie & Daniel tied the knot at The Marriott Griffin Gate in Lexington. This wedding made me laugh, cry, and showed me how much family can come together in celebration. The ceremony was filled with joy and the reception full of fun loving people who danced the night away. Their theme was “Best Day Ever!” It was truly the Best Day Ever!

Emily & Joe- Wedding Photography in Lexington, KY

I have to say this was one of the most creative weddings I have photographed. Emily and Joe love books, and it shines in their details. They wed in Gratz Park in downtown Lexington on a beautiful summer day. Their reception took place in the Carnegie Center, which was Lexington’s public library until the 1980’s. How perfect of a venue for book lovers! My favorite part of the day was their first look. You can truly see the love in their eyes. I hope you love this fun and energetic couple’s wedding as much as I did!

Vanesa & Andrew- Wedding Photography in Nicholasville, KY

Tucked away in the countryside of Nicholasville, Vanesa and Andrew were getting ready for their wedding. It was a beautiful day, and the ceremony overlooked a winding creek. They shared their first kiss as the sun was setting behind the trees, providing a perfectly picturesque scene. When they smile at each other, even for a moment, it tells the entirety of their love story. They are simply overjoyed when they are with each other.

Rachel & Christian – Wedding Photography in Versailles, KY

I met Rachel through my best friend. Rachel opened her own flower shop a few years back, and she is amazing. So of course her bouquet had to be the best, and it was! I can tell Christian truly cherishes her. They love to laugh. The wedding was so much fun. They added their own special touches. Lego cufflinks, a beautiful (confetti) wedding cake, and Christian’s wedding ring is awesome!

Candice & Lucas- Wedding Photography in Lexington, KY

Candice and Lucas love to laugh… and dance! They were so much fun to be around. I loved photographing the ladies prior to their first look. Candice was amazingly calm and joyful. The Mansion at Griffon Gate was perfection for their blue and violet toned reception. Here are a few of my faves!
