A year ago today I posted this image by @samstroud from a styled shoot we did a few years ago and it got over 5k likes! CRAZYtown, right? Well to say it made my day is an understatement and THANK YOU to everyone who liked it!!!!!!
Being flexible to what life brings your way is something I've always strived to be. Sometimes, I think I can pivot quite easily. Sometimes, I fail. And while I do enjoy a good adventure, stability is what I often cling to. I'm looking forward to my next big adventure and taking a giant, strategic leap into full time photography. No crutches, no side hustles. This is it. And it feels glorious.
June was filled with beautiful brides (six to be exact) handsome grooms, adorable flower girls, stunning bridesmaids and emotional families. A long and crazy month that I couldn't have gotten through without all the great teamwork of a multitude of vendors and the best CWFD helpers 😘anyone could ask for - @mmgardening @lq2219 @syddkay @sarahsaundersstudio @saq1969 @swilcox18 @maggiewilcoxx. One of my fav pics by @brookeallisonphoto from an incredible wedding designed by @amychampagneevents. Lots more pics to come ( now that I have some down time before the next beautiful brides in July!)

I had been anxiously watching the forecast for Karen & Josh's wedding day. A week leading up to their day, it was calling for 80% chance of thunderstorms. I'm so glad that it turned out to be sunny ALL day! We snuck away to this open field during their reception and found his glowy sunset lighting! I'm loving all of the images from their wedding this past weekend!!!
I fell in love with these two over coffee last fall, and a little more on their engagement session. Well let's just say after their wedding day I'm obsessed. The way Matt loves Jesus + His now beautiful bride, and how Sue is just filled with the sweetest spirit, warm heart and is just the definition of lovely. I didn't just photograph their wedding on Saturday, I celebrated alongside them. ✨
It's been a minute Insta! We are back and ready to partyyyyy. 🎈We are so incredibly thankful for all of the love the last few weeks. We have been working around the clock finishing orders and we are finally playing catch up with our social media and emails. Please bear with us 💖!
Photos from this gorgeous Louisville, Kentucky wedding hit the blog today! So many amazing people came together to make this wedding simply perfect! Lindsey was the true definition of beauty ❤ Blog link is in my bio ☺
