Ally & Will at The Louisville Country Club

Ally & Will at The Louisville Country Club

Ally adores black and white photography.  (As do I!) So I am going to go against the grain and only show black and white images from their beautiful wedding at the Louisville Country Club. 

There was so much to enjoy about photographing this wedding.  Ally's smile lit up every room.  Will and his groomsmen spared no opportunity for hilarity.  Their legendary first dance was equal parts Dirty Dancing and Great Gatsby.  And it's not every day that I get to shoot a wedding where a United States Senator is a wedding guest.

There is something magical about black and white photography.  It has a way of making images taken last week appear as though they were taken a century ago.  I like that.  I hope you do too.

Hi internet!  I know it's been a while since I blogged to you.  But I sort of was hoping you'd accept this blog post as a peace offering of sorts.  I want us to be friends again.  Are we good?

Meet Janie and Robert.  They are pretty much awesome.  And like there koozie says Janie and Robert are totally making marriage great again.  Hah!

Also, I've got to give a huge shout out to Hollis Starks, Janie's wedding planner.  She knows how to throw a super classy party that is such a joy to photograph. 

Elizabeth & Paul at Whitehall Gardens

Elizabeth & Paul at Whitehall Gardens

After postponing because of rain several times, I finally got the perfect evening to photograph Elizabeth and Paul's engagement session at Louisville's historic Whitehall Gardens.  I had met Elizabeth at a really fun wedding last year and was thrilled when she called about her session.  Several things made this evening memorable to me.  It was my first time meeting Paul and we hit it off right away.  So much so that I think Elizabeth was ready for us to be done talking about golf way before we were.  Elizabeth's dad brought a classic car to the shoot and then photo-bombed the couple out of nowhere.  (The photo is on my instagram... Hilarious!)  And Elizabeth set the record for the number of outfit changes.  How many were there?  I lost count.  Oh wait, I can look back on the photos.  FIVE!  :) 

I love it when my clients love and affection and delight in one another exudes from them and these two were no exception.  I can't wait to see what their photographs will look like from their destination wedding in Italy.  (No, I'm not shooting it.  And yes, I'm trying really hard to be happy for whoever is!)
