Blue is my favorite color… hands down. Add in some kind people, a beautiful day, and second shooting with one of my best friends (Amy Wallen Photography) and it equals a wonderful wedding day for me! As a second shooter, I’m there to compliment the main shooter- not necessarily photograph ALL the moments. In this blog I’ve added all my favorite highlights.
I was SO looking forward to photographing this summer wedding at Maplewood Estate and Barn with Justin and Brittany. I adored this venue! The owners were so welcoming and warm and the house and grounds were just beautiful. I have known Brittany for a long time, as well as many of her bridesmaids so it was nice to be a part of this day with them! I got to know Justin a bit during their Farmer’s Market Engagement back in early Fall.
Brittany and Justin are truly perfect for each other. I love how much fun they have together. It’s easy to see that they really are just best friends who fell in love. PS, If you do want to hear more about their story, their engagement session was featured on How They Asked by The Knot.
Their wedding day was precious, surrounded by lots of good friends and beautiful details. I’m SO happy for you Mr. and Mrs. Lamb!
Full team of vendors coming soon.
How has a year passed since Donna and Garret't’s beautiful boho wedding at Asbury Meadows?! Some of my favorite parts of their wedding last year were all of the gorgeous boho details- ALL of them! Garrett’s first look as he saw Donna coming down the aisle was one of the most genuine and emotional moments I’ve witnessed as a wedding photographer. Their reception was so full of energy and fun, and I had such a wonderful time alongside Riley and Paul from Sigler Cinematography. It’s always great to make new vendor friends and this was one of those times!
For their anniversary session, we dodged the rain- BARELY!- to shoot in Gratz Park in Lexington Kentucky. I hadn’t seen them since their wedding last June so it was wonderful to meet up again. I’m so happy that we were able to connect nearly two years ago and be a part of their journey as a couple. Happy Anniversary friends!

Where to even begin? It was such an honor to photograph Sarah and Ryan’s wedding day. I fell in love with them the first time we met for their pre-wedding consultation. They are two of the kindest people I’ve ever met. They both beamed while telling me about their kids and their love story. Sarah is probably the sweetest person on the planet. Ryan is perfect for her and is such a caring and supportive partner.
It was such a joy getting to meet their family and friends. Everyone agreed that they met each other just when they needed each other most. Their boho decor amongst the beautiful natural views at Stonewall Resort in Roanoke WV was just perfect. One of my favorite moments was when Sarah gifted Ryan his late father’s watch with a brand new band during their first look.
So, so happy for the new Mr. & Mrs. Mayse!

Laura and Brian’s Lawrenceburg wedding was absolutely one of my favorites of 2018. Their wedding day took place on THE most beautiful Fall day of the year- no doubt- at The Barn at McCall Springs. Every detail was stunning and they are such a precious couple, so deserving of having their wedding highlighted in this way.

Morgan and Ryan’s engagement session was just as beautiful and unique as they are. As soon as I saw them interacting together I knew that they were a perfect match! I loved the easy way that they laugh and enjoy each other’s company.
We began our session in downtown Pikeville taking in the colorful urban scenery. We then moved on to shoot with a vintage truck and beautiful sunset including a Redbud tree in full bloom.
We had such a fun time talking, catching up, and celebrating their love for one another! I’m so excited for their summer wedding. Congrats friends!
