I met Ashley and Nick when I photographed Ashleys sister's wedding last year. When they contacted me to photograph their wedding I was thrilled. Sometimes as a photographer I feel I become part of my clients family, like a cousin you only see on special occasions. ;) I have been to some weddings that I didn't want to leave because the family was so good to me. Feeding me, making sure I am hydrated, it is easy to get attached. It is nice when those special occasions do come up and I get to catch up with everyone again. :)
The wedding was located at a beautiful little winery in Morning View, Kentucky called Atwood Hill Winery. This place is gorgeous. Perfect for a quaint outdoor ceremony. I just love when my clients choose unique locations for their wedding. It makes my job so much fun.
Thank you Ashley and Nick for letting me be part of not only your wedding, but also your family. It is always a pleasure.
We started at Ashley's parents house with the girls getting ready.
This is Ashley's nephew, David. I feel like it was just yesterday when we did his newborn session. He's already a little man. :) Ashley wanted her wedding to be laid back and relaxed. I think daisies were a great choice for the carefree vibe.
It was a perfect day for a wedding. There were so many great spots for pictures. The cake is by Ginniebug Creations.
Ashley's mother, Kathy and her Aunt Anne made all of the sweets. My favorite part of the wedding, besides all of the love, were the three m&m cookies and one unbelievable brownie I had. So good! Kentucky cooking is something I never pass up. ;) I really like the next picture, ALOT! Nick and his mother, both looking great. This is Audra, one of Ashley's bridesmaids. She was in a wedding I photographed in last October. It is always nice to see a familiar face. Since I have been obsessed with silhouettes, you know I had to do a pregnant one. :)
Below Audra I used the moon to do a little light painting.
