David and Chelsea met at work, fell in love during many dates at Keeneland and got engaged on the shores of South Carolina. These Lexington natives fiercely love their pets (their Corgi even made an appearance), laughing with their friends and celebrating like it’s going out of style. I did my best to document the goofiness of this fun loving, laid back pair and hope you smile from ear to ear as you relive their downtown Lexington wedding day. Join us for their vows at St. Paul Catholic Church, portraits around Limestone Hall + Gratz Park and celebration at the Mane on Main in Lexington, Kentucky. Enjoy!
This future palentologist just turned SIX! Brayden loves dinosaurs (his mom and I joked that he's totally channeling young Ross Gellar from Friends <3) and is a ball of energy! We spent a half hour at The Studio Cottage in Lexington, Kentucky driving upside down cars, jumping around in pillows and reading dinosaur books. After our session I got a text from his mom that said, "Brayden wants me to share that he wants you to babysit him because you are so fun. That's the highest honor from him!". I'm pretty sure that's the best review I've ever gotten <3
You may remember their engagement photos from around this time last year :) They officially became Mr. ad Mrs. Dietz on the shores of Cancun, Mexico but decided for some portraits together in Kentucky too! We spent a beautiful morning at the Kentucky Horse Park to create these truly stunning portraits. I hope you and enjoy and congratulations to the newlyweds!
Peter and Dominique loaded up the family, including the family dog Rollo and Peter’s parents, to enjoy an afternoon running through the corn stalks, watching Rollo deal with Noah’s loving but aggressive hugs and seeing Ron befriend the local camel at Eckert-Boyd Orchard in Versailles, Kentucky. There were also apple cider donuts- but they were so delicious they went unphotographed. :) Join us for their fun afternoon that has pictures to prove it. :)
THE 80’s. Anyone who was around for them secretly has their scrunchies, hot pants and prom dresses stored in closet waiting for their comeback. Joe + Tivoli found a few era treasures someone cast back into the world and strutted them to the Burl in Lexington, Kentucky for the 80’s prom! But no fits-like-a-glove 80’s gem can go without a fashion show, some old school video games and little awkwardness- amiright? Enjoy their incredibly fun arcade photoshoot at the Burl Arcade.
Join us for an afternoon at the Eckert Boyd Orchard and making homemade lamb dumplings with the Ao family in Lexington, Kentucky. Not only is important to have beautiful images with your family but it’s also important to have documentation of family traditions- like making dumplings from scratch for dinner. The little things are big things and it’s certainly a day I felt so honored to be invited to. Enjoy!
I joined family at the University of Kentucky Arboretum for a mini session to document some portraits of them with baby Mia! We strolled through the gardens chatting about how they grew up two hours from each other in Mexico but met in the U.S. and tried our best to get three month old Mia to show us her beautiful smile. It was so wonderful to meet them and I hope everyone enjoys their sweet images! <3
