Louisville Kentucky Wedding Photographer Portfolio
Congratulations on finding your forever person!
I can assure you, it’s true what they all say: your wedding day will be the HAPPIEST day of your life. It's also true when they say that your day will FLY BY way too fast. This is why your wedding photography is so important. Even though you can't bottle up all of those happy emotions you’ll be experiencing on your wedding day, there's a next best alternative: Beautiful photos capturing every moment of your day; the very essence of those intangible emotions. I work with my couples to make sure they get all of the photos they’re dreaming of, but also have room to breathe throughout the day. I know taking photos can be exhausting (especially for my grooms, amiright?) but it doesn’t have to be a boring chore! I promise to keep your wedding photos amusing and full of energy so that it's a fun & romantic experience for you both! And I also promise to be there for the quieter times throughout your day, hanging in the background to capture those candid, subtle moments that are just as important for telling your lovestory. My goal is to give you the most BEAUTIFULLY HONEST TESTAMENT of your day so that you can re-live it over and over again!

Frequently Asked Questions
How would you describe your work/artistic style?
I am first and foremost a storyteller. As mentioned on my welcome page, it's all about capturing the real chemistry between you, your genuine laughs, + authentic moments with those you love dearly. Storytelling can be accomplished in a variety of photographic styles, and I love the creative freedom of being able to blend both the fun, candid, more documentary types of shots with the more romantic, fine-art editorial types of shots (think- swoony, magazine-worthy photos!) During the majority of your wedding day- getting ready, ceremony, dinner, reception - I lean towards a more documentary/candid style, always with the goal of capturing the genuine story that is unfolding. During the individual portraits as well as the bride & groom couple session, I love to bring out both the fun & the romance of your relationship. I use both prompting & posing to invite real connection, chemistry, and intimacy into your shoot, and to make it an authentic EXPERIENCE for you! I've developed a process of directing & guiding you in a way that your natural emotions will flow and you'll be able to RELAX, feel COMFORTABLE and HAVE FUN interacting together in front of the camera. Light is the key to beautiful, flattering photos, (and I am obsessed with pretty light!) so I will often be asking you to move into the best light possible, especially while getting ready and during your portraits and couple session. My ultimate goal is to capture the authentic connection between you and TO TELL YOUR LOVESTORY, YOUR UNIQUE WAY, so that when you look back through your photos in the future you will be transported back to this day to laugh again, cry again, and relive each moment just as it truly happened.
How would you describe your editing style?
I certainly enjoy the challenge of creating my own artistic universe & unique editing style! However, I'd say my editing style falls into the category of VIBRANT MOODY, with a twist of WHIMISCAL, BOHO flair! I'm sure you've noticed that I love golden light, shooting into the sun and capturing those GORGEOUS sunflares! I like rich tones and bold, vibrant colors! You'll notice in looking through my portfolio that the majority are taken using only the beautiful natural light that exists on any given day. I prefer to only use flash when absolutely necessary, like during wedding receptions and low-light situations. My editing style is consistant on my website and my social media, and it's also the style in which I will edit and deliver your photos. My editing style stays consistent with what you see here on my website, you should be sure when booking with me that you like my artistic style as presented here.
Do you shoot destination weddings and/or elopements?
Ummmmm, major wanderluster here! I am ALWAYS down to travel to you for weddings and elopements! And the best part for you is that I keep my prices competitive with your local photographers and usually am able to absorb my own travel fees! ESPECIALLY if it's some exotic place I've been dying to visit! I love it so much that I offer discounts to keep my services affordable for my couples while I get to see the world - Its a win/win for both of us! Let me know where you're getting married and if it's a bucket-list place for me you might just be lucky and get a pretty sweet deal!
Do you travel for photo sessions?
Yes I do! I travel 100 miles round-trip from Louisville, KY for free for weddings, 50 miles round trip free for other photo sessions. Anything outside of this area for regular photo sessions will include travel fees and possibly hotel fees if overnight stay is required.
How many photos do you deliver from a full wedding day?
I deliver EVERY PHOTO that turns out good! I don't limit the amount of photos included in your packages because I believe you deserve to have every good shot when you pay for my services! I also spend time hand-retouching skin, eyes, and teeth on your couples photos! In general, you can expect to receive 80-100 photos per hour of coverage! But don't worry - I'll never hold a good photo hostage haha!
Will there be a second shooter?
Most of my packages include a second shooter! And for those that don't you have the possibility of adding one on. Why does it matter? With 2 photographers you can be guaranteed not to miss any crucial moments and you'll also have two perspectives and two creative eyes!
How and when will we receive our photos?
I generally deliver sneak previews within 3-4 days and your entire gallery will be delivered via a beautiful, private, downloadable online gallery within 3-4 weeks after your wedding date. The photos are un-watermarked and you can share the link with your family and friends! You can download photos and order professional artwork & photo albums right from within the gallery. I highly recommend this option because your prints will come from a professional printer, which will guarantee a high quality and the most accurate color. However, the digital photos that I deliver to you are YOURS, which means you can also have them printed elsewhere if you choose!
