Welcome Becci and Walt

Category: Favorites | August 28th, 2019

I am so excited to welcome Becci and Walt our newest couple! Their wedding will be at one of the newest venues in town and I can’t wait to see how they decorate! The Turn 828 has such a unique vintage vibe. Seeing their renovations in progress has been so much fun. They are just down the street from our studio and so close to many other Newport wedding professionals. And I can’t wait for their fall engagement session! 

One of the things that I love about photography is that it captures 1/100 of a second so that we can look back and relive our memories. A wedding day goes by so quickly and you just want to hug all of those moments a little longer. Lauren shared, “My favorite part of the wedding was when my daughter Maddy gave her Maid of Honor speech. I was very impressed with how well she did and it was so touching! I also loved the unity sand ceremony that Sean, Maddy and I did together 🙂 It was so special and I’m glad that Maddy could be a part of it.” Trust me it was one of the best speeches I have ever heard! She needs to join the speech and debate team!

The reception dancing had to be one of my favorites. It was a party and the dance floor was packed! “When planning, it was important to me that we had a good DJ and a big dance floor. I love to dance and wanted everyone out on the dance floor having a good time!” Their first dance song was “You’re the One” by Greta Van Fleet. And her dance with her dad turned into a fast dance to “Jailhouse Rock” by Elvis. 
Her advice to future couples would be to have a wedding planner. “Time goes by so fast and the last thing you need is the stress of trying to get everything done last minute. It’s also nice to have a wedding planner to help you set up and take down everything afterwards. Allison Ritz was awesome and such a huge help to us!”

Congrats to the newlyweds and we wish them all the very best! And a big thank you to their talented wedding professionals who made the day so inspiring to photograph!

Welcome Jen and James!

Category: Weddings | August 17th, 2019

I am so excited to welcome our newest couple Jen and James! Their wedding will be at the lovely Hotel Covington. It is one of my favorite venues because it mixes the traditions of Kentucky with a chic modern hotel – finished with warm inviting interiors.  What could be better than a wall full of bourbon barrels for a backdrop for photos? Excuse me while I saddle up to their beautiful bar for an Oaks Lily Cocktail! By the way this couple has had dates at different horse tracks and keep track of their betting together to use the money toward the next track! Their first date was at the Belmont! I grew up close to Churchill downs so I love this so much!!!)

? I can’t wait to meet up soon for their engagement session!
