Recently I assisted my friend, Brandi Potter, to photograph an elopement in Red River Gorge. Every time I visit the Gorge I am in awe all over again of the natural beauty all around. It is a beautiful place to share wedding vows, and this elopement was a perfect example of that. However, the beauty of the Gorge paled in comparison to the beautiful and genuine people that I had the privilege to photograph. Gena has the most infectious and kind smile, and there was a lot of it on this special day! Lee's love for Gena was so evident and it was sweet to watch him wait for her at the overlook in happy anticipation.
We started the day in a little cabin off of Rock Bridge Road, and then made our way to Chimney Rock Trail where we hiked an easy trail to end at a beautiful overlook of the hills below. Gena and Lee were surround by their family and closest friends as they shared a relaxed, yet beautiful and intimate ceremony.
