Shelby and Micah planned this beautiful Kentucky wedding while they were living in California-talk about some incredible skills! It truly was a family affair to make their dreams a reality and the result was stunning. From the beautiful rugs that lined their aisle to the containers of sands as part of each center piece from the places they have visited there were so many special elements. Micah even had donuts from his favorite donut shop as part of the reception (that may or may not have been on of my favorite elements!)
The most touching part of the day was when Shelby and Micah exchanged letters prior to the ceremony. It was fitting that Micah delivered his letter in a chicken nugget container. The letters brought tears and the container brought laughs. It was such a sweet moment.
Being able to share in this beautiful days and capture these moments with sweet couples is something I will never take for granted. Thank you for allowing me to share in your smiles and sweet memories as you start your life together.
I was lucky enough to get another chance to work with this beautiful senior. The weather was terrible to say the least-it was the misty rain for the first 10 minutes but that is what cute umbrellas are for! Kayla was such a trooper and was willing to standing the rain for shots and look at her-who else can take photos in the rain and look like that? She is so stunning and I tell her every time I get to photograph her that I am in love with her eyes.
With a super busy schedule like she has between school and ballet I am so glad, despite the weather, that we were able to make this session happen. I’m looking forward to our next session in the spring!
Lydia’s family farm was beyond perfect for her senior session. When you pull up and see beautiful light, cows, and a tire swing you know it will be an epic session. Lydia is so sweet and beautiful. She looked as effortlessly beautiful sitting in a jeans and tee shirts in a field of cows as she did walking through a field at sunset. I had so much fun working with you. Thank you for letting me wander around this beautiful farm with you. Good luck with the rest of your senior year!
This beautiful senior didn’t mind traveling over an hour to get to work with me while I was in Kentucky for a wedding and I couldn’t be more grateful. She was so beautiful and was laughing at my attempts to show her the poses I was looking for so I knew she would be a blast to work with just 5 minutes into our session.
.As usual the Kentucky sunset didn’t disappoint us. I kept saying “ok Sam we are all done” and as we continued to walk back to the car the sunset kept getting better and better so we stopped about 3 more times until we were actually finished! I love working with seniors who are willing to follow my sometimes crazy direction. The trust they put in me to capture this amazing time in their life means the world to me.
Good luck with the rest of your senior year Sam!
When an adorable family invites you to their beautiful farm for a sunrise session the answer will always be YES! The morning couldn’t have been more perfect. Between the light and the laughs I had a blast working with the Muncy family. If you didn’t already know it Cheryl runs her own business-Newfangled Clothing CO. She makes the most adorable vintage inspired clothes for kids. You have got to check it out.
Have I mentioned before how much I LOVE senior sessions? Once I get over the fact that I did not look so amazingly beautiful and confident as all the seniors now a days my heart just explodes with excitement during these sessions. Natalie is so stunning!!! It seems like just last year I was taking her family photos with her younger sister and she was no where near being a senior. Time is such a crazy thing and usually doesn’t add up to what I think it should be but I am so thankful for families that continue to choose me to capture their memories and mile stones.
Soak it all up Natalie-every moment and memory. I hope you have an amazing senior year!
I have always heard that is is good luck to have a little rain on your wedding day. So when it won’t stop raining that has to be a amazing sign! A marriage is symbolized by a knot and a wet knot is basically impossible to untie. When you ‘tie the knot’ on a rainy day your marriage and bond is hard to unravel.
Joby and Breana’s day was so beautiful and most importantly filled with so many smiles and so much love. We had to adjust and move the beautiful setup indoors but everyone was so eager to help make the adjustment as quick as possible. The rain ended just in time for the fog to roll in over the mountains. I always sneak my bride and groom away for sunset portraits when I can but this time it was for the fog which has become my newest obsession.
Everyone ate cake and the kids danced in the rain. It was a beautiful day and I am so thankful I was able to share in it with this sweet couple.
