Emily & Brandon: Lexington, Kentucky Engagement Photography

June 8, 2011

Emily and Brandon are one of those couples that are best friends. They are two of the nicest, easy going people I’ve met. Emily’s cute southern accent exudes southern charm;) I love it. I had the most pleasant evening shooting with them. I can’t wait for their “green” wedding at the Carrick House in July.

Here’s Emily’s story on how they met and how Brandon proposed:

Brandon and I meet in January 2006.  We were hired at a law firm on the same day as Runners for the firm.  I was a senior at Georgetown and Brandon was a senior at UK.  As soon as Brandon and I began working together, I knew I was going to marry him.   After the law firm closed each day, we would have races around the law firm picking up the shredding for the day.  Brandon would go one way around the office and I would go the opposite way.  Each day I beat him, even though he will never admit that.  I thought if we have this much fun picking up shreddings each day, then I want to spend more time with him.

In May 2006, my best friend was getting married.   For her bachelorette party, we spent a weekend in Hilton Head.  As my friends and I were walking on the beach one day we were each talking about who we were going to marry.  I told my friends that I was going to marry Brandon Green.  At the time, it was very far-fetched.  Brandon and I weren’t even dating and I wasn’t sure at that time if Brandon was even interested, yet in my mind we were meant to be together forever.  My friends thought I was crazy.

In August 2006, right before I started my first year of teaching, he asked me out on a date.  He treated me to a delicious dinner, was a complete gentleman the entire night and I knew he was the man I was going to marry. After a few more dates we made our relationship official.

In July 2010, my mother sent Brandon and I to Hilton Head (for what I thought was a celebration for me finishing my Master’s Degree).

As soon as Brandon and I got to Hilton Head, we headed to the beach to watch the sunset.   As we were walking, on the very same beach where I had pronounced I would marry him (when I barely knew him) he pulled me away from the ocean, got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him.

On July 2nd, 2011 we will be getting married! 🙂

Getting Closer- Horse Mania Challenge: Lexington, KY Photographer

Crazy Quilted Horse

I’m really making headway on this project. I hate to brag but my photos are much better than the Lexington Herald Leader’s. But they are simply reporting-maybe not the facts-but it’s not their job to be creative. So here are even more ponies.

The Siren of the Bluegrass

She is one of my favorites. I like to call her the “MerHorse.” The Little Mermaid has always been my favorite Disney movie. Yes, I’d be Ariel if offered the position. I do love the water-any kind. The ocean is my love. I can’t help that I’m a girl with starfish on her mind:)

Horse Mania Challenge! Pressing on… ; Lexington, KY Photographer

September 1, 2010

More Horses…and more…and more. It’s getting exhausting really. Fighting traffic, closed sidewalks, bad light, lack of parking-the horses are spread so far apart across the city. I want to quit. I’m getting closer but it feels impossible. If I’m going to get all 82 I have to do it before the WEG. For now here’s a few more. We’ll see, we’ll see. It really is a challenge. I had no idea.

Horse Mania Challege Continues: Lexington, KY

August 20, 2010


Nightmare

So here’s some more horses.  I know: 7 down, 75 to go:) Like I said, ‘how the west was won.” lol It’s hard to get great shots when they are DESTROYING the downtown area.  I felt like every horse would have a bright orange cone or a parade of caution tape in the background of the photo. There were some great angles I wanted but I felt intimidated by all those construction workers/ and or random slew of men staring at me. I shouldn’t care-it’s public property. Besides, it’s my job to report things creatively with a camera-as a photographer and artist.  But anyway, here’s my fav so far-Starry Night horse. Vinnie would be so honored!

Horse Mania! Lexington, KY Photographer

July 21, 2010

Need something fun to do around Lexington? Horse Mania is back! I found a couple horses at Gratz Park. I’m to photograph all 82…all from different angles. It’s a challenge indeed. I don’t think there is a map of where all of them are. I’m not even sure if 82 is the official number. Doesn’t matter really. Stay tuned. This will be quite the challenge. 🙂
