Get a Guest Book with Flair!

October 23, 2009

A standard sign-in book with lined pages is a traditional at weddings. It’s a great way to look back and see who came to celebrate the day with you. Let’s be honest though. It will probably go in the cedar chest, a box, or stuffed in the bottom of a drawer and never looked at after the wedding. If you order a sign-in guest book that is custom designed with your engagement photos, you will keep it out and look at it over and over again. Not to mention it is a great way to display your engagement photos to all your guests. IMG_1202IMG_1208


Lay flat pages make it easy for guests to sign. Thick durable pages keep the book from being torn or bent easily. It’s a tremendous addition to any wedding day celebration!

Kimberly and Andrew

October 18, 2009

It was a beautiful evening a nice break from the chilly weather. Nothing could have made this Columbus Day engagement session better-so I thought. I was thinking this to myself as I stepped out of my Jeep. This lovely thought was interrupted by the high pitched clinking of plastic on the asphalt below. I watched helplessly as the back to my wireless shutter remote went bouncing underneath my vehicle, landing squarely underneath the center of the body. The only way to retrieve it would be to army crawl under there and get it, which I decided to wait and do after I shot the session. At some point during shooting I would find myself lying on the ground to get the angle I wanted. It would be easier to explain pebbles and dirt marring my shirt AFTER the shoot rather than before.

I met Kimberly and Andrew in front the Opera House that evening. We had originally planned to start with photographs there but I discovered some other great places as I was waiting for them to arrive. They are from Richmond, so they didn’t mind “discovering” some little known parts of Lexington. It was their fall break from Eastern Kentucky University and they decided to have engagement photographs taken in plenty of time for their May 22, 2010 wedding.

They are cute couple. Very laid back but very much in love! At one point Andrew said he wasn’t too concerned with the details-he just wanted to marry Kimberly:)

We traipsed around downtown and found unexpected bursts of color, great light and beautiful backdrops. Their photographs turned out lovely!






Little Pumpkin

Scott and Kate: two of the best people I know. They are the kind of people you feel like you don’t have to be anyone but yourself around. So cool, so laid back and they are perfect for each other. It’s only fitting that God should bless them with an adorable little pumpkin named Avery. Scott and Kate chose not to find out if they were having a boy or girl until the day the day she arrived. So you remember when everyone used to do that-like only 10 years ago! Humans- so funny.




Dream: Think Big

October 10, 2009


“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. May your rivers flow without end, meandering through pastoral valleys tinkling with bells, past temples and castles and poets’ towers into a dark primeval forest where tigers belch and monkeys howl, through miasmal and mysterious swamps and down into a desert of red rock, blue mesas, domes and pinnacles and grottos of endless stone, and down again into a deep vast ancient unknown chasm where bars of sunlight blaze on profiled cliffs, where deer walk across the white sand beaches, where storms come and go as lightning clangs upon the high crags, where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits for you — beyond that next turning of the canyon walls.”

-Edward Abbey
