Timeline Planning Don’ts

Wedding planning is full of many unknowns as,chances are, you’ve never done it before.  Many decisions are entirely personal and to your taste, but the timeline is not something you should just guess at.  Here are a few don’ts to consider when scheduling for the big day. 1. Giving guests a false start time. I’ve seen entirely too many ‘tips’ that suggest telling the guests that the ceremony will start 15-30 minutes prior to when you actually want it to start.  There will be a few who are late,View full post »

Peterson Newlywed

Love doesn’t make the world go ’round.  Love is what makes the ride worthwhile. – Franklin P. Jones We braved the path back to Amanda’s grandparent’s farm once again, but it definitely worth the ride!  Amanda and Ben got married on October 25th, went on their awesome Disney honeymoon then came back and had a shoot with me.  The weather was gorgeous, the farm was gorgeous, and this couple was amazing.  They rocked it out again, even though they doubted me at least 1View full post »

Scharklet – Raymer Engagement

Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love. – Mother Teresa We picked a cold day in October to venture to Mammoth Cave National Park for this session, but the outcome was awesome.  LeKreshia and Michelle are such a great couple, so much fun, and up for just about anything (which is always a plus in my book).  Can’t wait for their September wedding!View full post »

Three Nails Photography Workshop

In October, I had the most amazing experience in my professional career to date.  I was lucky enough to attend a Three Nails Photography Workshop, and considering Hunter has decided to stop doing workshops for the foreseeable future, I was indeed lucky to get in when I did.  It was a very long 9 hour drive to Shreveport, LA and  back (considering it rain very hard on us the whole way home), but the experience was once-in-a-lifetime and completely worth it.  I learned a lot of great marketing,View full post »

Drish Wedding

Happy is the man who finds a true friend, and far happier is he who finds that true friend in his wife. -Franz Schubert I shot this backyard wedding in September and it couldn’t have been more beautiful.  The bride and groom were so obviously in love and all the little handmade touches made it so very special. They had the most fun first look I’ve ever seen.  They used lots of balloons to hide from one another, then let them go together.  It was such a special moment that I feelView full post »

Peterson/ Spradlin Engagement

I had such a wonderful evening with Amanda and Ben in beautiful Hart County, KY.  We started out at the town square but her heart was at her grandparents farm, where the two got engaged.  We had intended to do our entire shoot at the farm but the fields hadn’t been cut and the grasses were waist-high.  We still ventured back there at the end of our session.  Bumpy rides and waist high grass can’t stop us!  I ended up rolling around in the waist-high grasses to get the perfect shot, paid for itView full post »

Patton Wedding

I dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance, A church filled with family and friends. I asked him what kind of a wedding he wished for, He said one that would make me his wife. -Unknown   I had the pleasure of documenting Amber’s and Kenny’s wedding in May.  It was a gorgeous field wedding straight out of a magazine!  We had lovely, sunny weather without it being too unreasonably hot.  Beautiful ceremony, great food and a wonderful party to celebrate the happy couple.  Congrats Mr. andView full post »
