Addy Knows Best | Nate + Cathy

Addy Knows Best | Nate + Cathy

While on a family vacation to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky Addy, who’s 6, fell in love with the ornament display at the park and suggested that her Mom, Cathy, and her fiancé of 3 years, Nate, should getting married there. After years of procrastinating the planning of a big wedding they took Addy’s suggestion seriously and put a wedding together in just 6 DAYS! Cathy’s grandfather officiated the ceremony and their closest family members (and a collection of horse park visitors that evening) watched them step inside the ornament and have an impromptu ceremony inside the ornament! Join us for their magical after dark nuptials.

Honey I'm Gorley | Alex + Cassie

Honey I'm Gorley | Alex + Cassie

Alex + Cassie met while serving at P.F. Changs and found that would try to spend as much time around each other as they could. It took Cassie moving away from Lexington for Alex to make his move and ask Cassie out, which took her back to Lexington and the rest, as they say, is history! Over the years they’ve been together they’ve adopted a dog and appeared in several music videos as extras; and as themselves in Andy Grammar’s hit “Honey I’m Good”. I think you can see the reference to their wedding title there. :) They wed at the Round Barn Stable of Memories in Lexington, Kentucky in late November surrounded by laughter and love. Join us for their celebration!

Love in Louisville | Mike + Chelsea

Love in Louisville | Mike + Chelsea

I met Michael + Chelsea at a wedding several years ago and was so excited to see they finally got engaged and even more excited when Chelsea contacted me about taking some portraits together! These two are getting married on the beach in the Dominican Republic next month but with a winter wedding they wanted some snuggly couple portraits in Louisville together too. With flurries falling this fun pair danced and laughed their way through the chilly December afternoon. I loved so many photos from their session it was hard to narrow down my favorites- so I hope you enjoy! <3

Donnelly Siblings Session

Donnelly Siblings Session

Karrie + Xavier shared their crew of kiddos with me for another year as their youngest, Kieran, just turned ONE! We threw tinsle like snow, taught Kieran how to drink Fanta and they let me spin them around like superheroes. It was so fun to spend a morning with them at the family business Blue Stallion Brewing Company. I hope you enjoy this goofy sibling photoshoot.

Inspired by portraits of the royals, Rebekah and Larry wanted some minimalist family portraits including their little lady Campbell. With patience and lots of skittles- I think we got at least a few winners fit for the halls of a palace. Join us for their mini session at the Studio Lex!

Bride and Byard | Chris + Sarah

Bride and Byard | Chris + Sarah

Chris and Sarah started out as long distance friends from an internet game they played together but as life brought them geographically closer together their friendship blossomed closer too. Their love story continued to span thousands of miles as jobs, school and visiting family called for lots of time on the road both together and apart. Their hearts remained close regardless of the distance and lead them here- to their wedding day! They wed under cool Saturday with overcast skies on October 13th. Join us for their sweet and colorful fall celebration at the Loudoun House in Lexington, Kentucky!

Happily Harper | Megan + Jared

Happily Harper | Megan + Jared

Jared met Megan while studying at Eastern Kentucky University but it took years of their paths crossing for him to finally ask her on a date. A few years later at 11:11, a time that Megan always makes a wish, Jared told Megan his wish and they were officially engaged! Fast forward to October 6th, the day they said "I do!" under partly cloudy skies at the Cedar Springs Pavilion in Tipp City, Ohio. Their Great Gatsby inspired celebration was an unforgettable day.
