Rain on your wedding day is good luck, right? Well Catrina and Robert have loads of luck after their rain soaked elopement in Prestonsburg, Kentucky. Friends held umbrellas as Cat and Robert said their vows and officially committed themselves to each other. They got ready at their home and came back after their vows to celebrate with cake and tacos! It was such a relaxed and comfy day. We decided to plan another day to photograph family and couples photos so that we could get some nice outdoor shots. I’m SO happy for them both and their little family!
Red River Gorge is one of my absolute favorite places to photograph. It was so quiet and nice the day that I met Ethan and Maleaha after their private elopement in Lexington to photograph some "just married" portraits of them! Maleaha started out in a short, fun wedding dress and then changed into her mother's wedding dress- which I thought was SO special! Maleaha has such a classic, vintage kind of beauty and I thought this vintage dress suited her perfectly. Beyond being vulnerable in front of a camera, I think hiking a trail bonds people together. We hiked Rock Bridge Trail all the way around the loop and we definitely had to make a few hand holding trains to keep each other's balance! I've only hiked a few trails at the Gorge, but Rock Bridge Trail is definitely my favorite so far! If you're planning your own elopement in Kentucky, I highly recommend checking out the Gorge!
I'm so excited to share with you this styled woodsy elopement that took place at Red River Gorge in Stanton, Kentucky. I took several months planning the concept, the color scheme, and the location. Then picking out each detail until the entire shoot became cohesive and flowed well together.
The evening started out with a beautifully decorated picnic table. We then hiked Rock Bridge Trail to the end taking moments to enjoy the scenery and celebrate their love.
If you are planning your own elopement, contact me and let me capture all the beauty, love, and uniqueness of your day!
