Season of the Witch Portraits | Claire

Finished these witchy portraits just in time for Halloween! Claire and I took these spooky, Halloween-y, witch photos late last October in Louisville— the height of fall foliage in Kentucky…

Bourbon Distillery Headshots | Casey and Sara

As a Kentucky photographer, I have always wanted to do a portrait photo session or headshot photoshoot in one of Louisville’s bourbon distilleries— and now that I have it definitely didn’t disappoint! When Casey and Sara needed new headshots and suggested one of the Whiskey Row distilleries for their photos I jumped at the opportunity! We used several different areas in the distillery for portraits to get different environments and lighting so they’d have a variety of headshots to choose from. One of my favorite headshot sessions to date!

Duncan Memorial Chapel Elopement | Denise and David

When David and Denise first contacted me to be their Duncan Memorial Chapel wedding photographer, they were planning a very small Kentucky spring wedding. When I arrived at Duncan Memorial, I discovered their wedding had become an elopement! It was my first time witnessing one of the weddings I was there to photograph (the other witness was one of the musicians)!

It was a gorgeous day for a wedding, with all the wild violets in bloom around the chapel. Denise wore a dress she found on Amazon, and she and David had a short ceremony in the chapel, lit a unity candle, and did a couples session on the chapel grounds. Then they had a short and sweet “cutting of the cake”— which had fun runner-themed decorations since they’re both runners!

Louisville Coffee Shop Portraits | Grace

My goal this winter was to catch up on all the blogging, business development, and website stuff— and as a Louisville photographer, I thought that would be quite doable, since in my experience, most of my photoshoots in Louisville happen in the spring, summer, and fall… Well… that’s not what happened. I stayed busy with freelance work, personal projects, photoshoots with local models, and the like. Which is a long winded explanation for why it took me so long to post this blog from my session with Grace, a local model I photographed this mid-winter! We met at a locally owned coffeeshop and did a shoot right there, with various patrons looking on. Luckily, the coffeeshop goers didn’t mind, and we found a variety of interesting backdrops (I’m obsessed with that yellow wall and the mural outside), and great light to work with!
