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!

Nurse Graduation Photos | Emily

Louisville graduation photoshoots are best in autumn or spring, in my opinion, and Emily and I took advantage of the gorgeous weather and Audubon Park’s abundant flowering trees this spring for her nursing school graduation photos!

We started with some portraits with all her nursing books, Bellarmine cap and gown, and then portraits in the park! Congratulations, Em!

Kristi and Matthew’s spring Duncan Memorial Chapel wedding was full of love, laughter, big smiles, singing— and square dancing during the reception!

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!
