The Stone Family | Louisville Family Photography

This family has been loyal to me for years.  I'm talking YEARS.  I knew Lauren + Steve pre-babies!  And I can say they are still one of my favorite, most influential families.  They have supported and believed in what I do as a photographer since day one.  They embody what I believe in.  They exude love, pureness, goodness, Godliness, and everything that is a photographers dream.  I have commented to people that Lauren radiates pure joy.  She is definitely someone that I have looked up to for years now!   

I am so blessed to have watched their family grow.  From newly weds to "Omg we're expecting!" to "gender reveal for #2" to "we're still growing" I've been there for them!  I could almost say they've been there for me too!  They have truly seen my style evolve, and probably will be faithful to see it continue!  I can only hope I am fortunate to say the same about them!

I met the Stone family at our favorite coffee shop (seriously, go to Louisville and visit Sunergos and get you some Blend B in your life ASAP.) for some coffee and yummy snacks.  I live right around the corner from Sunergos and couldn't be more thrilled to feature them in this shoot!  We also tried Nords for some treats, but they were just way to packed for a Saturday... Totally worth the wait, but a bit challenging with three kids under 5!  My amazing neighbor Becky does the murals for the bakery! 

 

Please enjoy some candid portraits of the most lovely family in Louisville!

Heath + Laura | Buffalo Trace Wedding, Frankfort KY

Heath and Laura are the sweeeeeetest, most laid back couple.  I LOVED their engagement session, and I knew they were going to have a fantastic wedding!  

Their wedding took place at the beautiful Buffalo Trace Distillery and the reception followed in the Elmer T. Lee Clubhouse, all in beautiful Frankfort Kentucky.  And of course y'all know I'm a sucker for a good live bluegrass band!

Thank you Heath and Laura for having along for your wedding day journey!  

Rachel + Chad |  Louisville Engagement

Rachel + Chad | Louisville Engagement

Rachel and Chad ....  Where to start!?  Chad was a grade younger than me in school, so the name was familiar when Rachel contacted me!  They're story is strait up something out of a movie!  Spoiler alert- T hey've got that comfortable vibe to them too, like they've known each other their whole lives or something.  :)   Rachels Grandma and Chads Mom have been BEST FRIENDS since the 7th grade!  There's no better way to describe them.  They're all smiles, all fun, and full of love.  My favorite kind of people!  

Rachel and Chad are getting married next fall at his family's farm back in our hometown.  I am so excited to be their photographer and to meet their whole family!  

Enjoy the love!

Kay + Cassie  |  Elopement in Black Mountain, NC

Kay + Cassie | Elopement in Black Mountain, NC

I was so excited to hear from Cassie when she inquired for her Elopement.  She said, “...Tiny wedding party, hiking near Asheville, NC, all in wedding attire… should be fun!”  And of course I JUMPED!  Y’all know this is my DREAM! 

I was so excited to hear from Cassie when she inquired on her elopement.  She said, “tiny wedding party, hiking near Asheville, NC, all in wedding attire… should be fun!”  And of course I JUMPED!  Y’all know this is my DREAM!  

Cassie + Kay’s wedding day was so laid back.  

They had the most wonderful brunch with their parents and siblings, and I could not have been more honored to be amongst their few trusted wedding party.  

After brunch, everyone worked to finish getting ready and also clean up.  It was A LOT of work!  But their tribe had it all covered.  Did I mention it was super laid back?  :)

Sometimes with elopements and tiny weddings things don’t happen as planned (such as your proposed destination getting blocked by mudslides and downed trees!), however with your trusty photographer in hand anything is possible!  And, chauffeured by my incredible finance in his huge, glamorous truck, the four of us adventured out into Black Mountain to try to find new spots to explore and get married at. 

In all honesty, Cassie & Kay were so down to earth and laid back, they could have gotten married on the side of the road and done it in absolute style!  :)  

I loved them 110%.

 

Did I mention Cassie was a childhood friend of mine, who I’ve found I can loose touch with, to only rekindle and still look up to her so much!  

Enjoy some behind the scenes shots....

Heath + Laura's Engagement On The River

Heath + Laura's Engagement On The River

What a sweet couple Heath and Laura are!  They are both so laid back and full of positivity.  They were so adventurous to go climbing up the side of the Ohio River.... and only weeks after Laura healed from a broken knee!  

They were troopers to say the least!  (Yes, even when we had to search after I lost my iPhone.  It fell out of my pocket while rolling around in the grass... ever seen me do this?  Check it out HERE!  haha!  I'll do anything to get the perfect shot!)
