Andrea & Ryan- Engagement Photography in Lexington, KY

This amazing engagement session takes place at Jacobson Park. This is where Ryan proposed. Family and friends all stood by while he asked Andrea to be his wife. It was truly a special event from all the details they have told me. We went back to where he popped the question, of course! I’ll let you guess exactly where. I had so much fun at this session. It felt as though I were talking with old friends throughout our time together. Congratulations, Andrea & Ryan! I hope you like your sneak peek!

Kirsten & Cameron- Engagement Session in Lexington, KY

Kirsten and I met at The Big Fake Wedding back in July. I am so happy she filled out her information at the event, because we started communicating soon after. Her fiancé, Cameron, would be home on leave for a short time and we scheduled their engagement session accordingly. If you read my last post, you will know that I have been sick for the past week. I emailed Kirsten and apologized in advance for my cough. Despite the cough, we captured some wonderful photos that I love. I hope you love them, too!

I am always honored to photograph military families. The dress that Kirsten wore for the next few photos is actually her mother’s. She found it not long before the photo session. It has belonged to her mother since she was newly married. I thought it was a cute dress before, but then I fell in love with it. Everything has more meaning when you tell its story.

Rhea & Keshav- Engagement Photography in Versailles, KY

Rhea contacted me just last week to schedule an engagement session. Her and her fiancé live in New York, and I am so happy they selected me to photograph their engagement! She had a wonderful vision for their photos, which included horses. We were able to have a wonderful horse named Richard assist us for the day! I was very excited to work with them, and they are the sweetest couple. They have a love that is truly profound. I can see it in his glances towards her. I can hear it in her laugh when she is around him. Their marriage will be strong, and I feel honored to have photographed them during this exciting time in their lives! Congratulations, Rhea and Keshav!

Mindy & Trey- Engagement Session in Frankfort, KY

We met at the Bridal Bliss Classic bridal show. I was holding an Instagram contest- follow me and you are entered to win a free engagement session. Needless to say, Mindy & Trey won! I am so happy they did. We had a blast!

Mindy & Trey met in downtown Frankfort and I loved the thought of their session being in the place they first met. The Old Capitol supplied a beautiful backdrop with its columns and I found an awesome photography location everywhere I turned.

They showed me around Frankfort, and we ended up in a beautiful garden. Even thought the weather was nice during our time together, it had been a rainy morning. Thank goodness, because raindrops are always fun!

Okay, so I just want to say thank you to this amazing couple! I have had the idea of this styled photo for a while. They were completely willing to help me figure out this idea and it has quickly become my favorite!

We waited so patiently for this one, but it was worth it! A perfect photo for the end of the night!

Mindy & Trey were so much fun, and appreciated my goofy excitement when I had an idea for a photograph. Haha! I loved working with them, and the one thing I noticed is that they love to smile and laugh with each other. So sweet! I hope you love this session as much as I do! Tell me which are your favorites in the comments!
