I don’t do very many portrait sessions, since I am a boutique wedding studio. I love this session that I did recently on a small road in central KY.
AB’s mom found her the perfect vintage-style dress the last time they visited California, and we photographed on one of November’s last warm days so AB was happy to kick off her sweet little shoes and go barefoot.
I also took this opportunity to shoot on the vintage Yashika-Mat that belonged to my grandfather when he was a young newspaper photographer in a small New Mexican town. I exposed several frames of color 120 film that I was particularly pleased with. :)
I hope that AB’s grandchildren will hold prints of these images 50 years from now… with even more fondness than I hold my grandfather’s camera.
Rhonda and David met at a music festival. She was a farm girl from Kentucky, he was an Amish fellow from a very small town. They danced the two-step and fell in love…
They married under a November sky, in a rustic barn in Nancy, Kentucky.
Venue: Meece Farm
Sam and Erin.
Their wedding weekend involved a community of loving support like I’ve never seen before. When they were pronounced husband and wife I think each loving friend and family member felt the world click into a little more rightness.
Sam and Erin have been best friends since he rode on her lap on a long car trip in college. They have compassionate hearts for the world which I think you would be hard pressed to find elsewhere.
They are also totally rad. Erin wears the jammer’s star on her local roller derby team, and Sam is a chemist and musician.
Their bridal party got ready at the Twin Valley Horse Ranch, and the wedding was on an island in a river: River John’s Island.
Thank you guys for giving me the opportunity to be with you on your wedding day.
Bridal Prep venue: Twin Valley Horse Ranch
Ceremony: River John’s Island, Tennessee
