Farm Engagement Session in Richmond  |  Abby & Jimmy  |  Keith & Melissa Photography

Abby & Jimmy are a sweet, fun couple that are getting married this summer at Warrenwood Manor in Danville, KY.  We had a blast walking around a private farm in Richmond for their engagement photos.  We loved how they incorporated sentimental areas and backgrounds into their images so that the photos are not only beautiful, but have an even deeper meaning for them.  These photos represent their beginning, present and future.  

Kentucky Wedding Venue, Starlit Heights in Lancaster, KY

Kentucky Wedding Venue, Starlit Heights in Lancaster, KY

We had the pleasure of going out to Lancaster last week to visit a new Kentucky wedding venue, Starlit Heights.  The coordinator, Amber, was so kind to give us a tour of the location and let us know more about what they offer.  The venue has an open air pavilion that would be perfect for wedding receptions as well as other events.  The setting overlooks miles of gorgeous Kentucky farmland and a cute little pond is one of the focal points.  There are several options for your ceremony location and portrait possibilities are endless on the 9+ acres!  There are wooded areas that would be so pretty in photos!  We can definitely envision beautiful engagement photos being shot here!  One of the highlights is Burdette Knob, an amazing overlook that would be a super romantic place for a proposal or an elopement and Amber would be happy to help you set that up!

Engagement sessions in the winter can be tricky but we were so fortunate to have a gorgeous venue to shoot Danielle & Sladyn's photos!  Danielle is one of the wedding coordinators at Spindletop and when she mentioned having them done there, we were all in!  Not only is Spindletop so pretty, but it was fun getting a little tour and learning a little history behind this Lexington landmark.  Danielle and Sladyn are a super adorable couple and so sweet!  She looked amazing in her striking red dress that just popped against the earthy winter tones outdoors as well as inside the historic venue.  Some of the photos were shot inside of the large library and others in the original owner's bedroom.  It's a really special place for engagement photos or a wedding so if you're searching for a wedding venue in Kentucky, make sure to check it out!

A few weeks ago when it had snowed about 4 inches here in the Lawrenceburg area, we got pretty tired of sitting at home and decided to take a drive.  There's a lot of pretty country around here and it's even more impressive blanketed in white snow.

Megan & Chase are a super cute and sweet couple that are getting married in May 2018.  They're both in medical school which can make schedules crazy so we decided to shoot their engagement session while they were in town for Christmas.  Who knew that it would be about 20 degrees that day?!  It was so cold but the sun was shining and Megan and Chase were amazing.  We met them and their adorable dog in Frankfort to shoot at several different locations.  We went to the Old Capital building, Brick Street (so cute!), the "new" Kentucky State Capital, Cove Spring Park and Buffalo Trace Distillery.  Each location was close to the other and offered awesome photo opportunities.  Megan and Chase were troopers every step of the way and we got some great shots!  We are so excited to shoot their wedding at the Winchester Opera House in May!
