Wedding: Cassie + Jameson

They met just a few months ago through friends and they were inseparable ever since. Just a month after their meeting at the Lexington Center Park, Jameson proposed! Why? Because he knew she was the one. THE one who would complete him. THE one who would love him, now and forever. THE one he could grow old with. Cassie of course accepted and couldn’t be more excited! They planned a small wedding with the help of a few close friends and family in just 4 months! Cassie’s favorite color had always been red.. so it was no surprise when she picked red for her Maid of Honor and Bridesmaid’s dresses and paired it with other fall colors for her flowers and decor. THE day came and though it was 40 deg F outside, their love was still a warm 98.6 deg F! Cassie was up early for her hair session and then makeup at the local Clinique counter at Peebles. Samantha worked her magic on ‘simple’ Cassie and gave her a classy and sweet look for her BIG day. To give it some ooomph… she chose a light red for her lips. More like cherry on a pie.

Engagement: Krystal + Kaleb

It turned out to be a beautiful day for a beautiful couple. Though the air was a little chilly at 9am it didn’t stop Krystal and Kaleb from having a good and easy day in each other’s arms. We started their engagement session indoors near the Lexington Children’s Theatre. It was still early so we had the whole place to ourselves- giving the couple some privacy and me plenty of freedom to find cool spots. It wasn’t too hard to place this couple as they fully cooperative and eager to show their love. Can you see it?

Besides the cool stores, I love these mini black and white hexagon tiles all over the interior of this building… what is the word… nostalgic? And natural light showered the couple from the skylights above giving them just enough glow to illuminate their ‘love’…yes MORE love! Can you feel it yet?

After a quick wardrobe change, we moved on outside for some fresh Lexington air and more beautiful light. I must say Krystal is a natural beauty. She barely has a stitch of makeup on and yet she radiates! She almost look like Naomi Watts and in some shots, Scarlett Johansson!! Take a look and let me know what you think!

As we were walking along and scouting for more interesting places, we came across a ‘farmer’s market’ (who knew) and a group of young folks giving away FREE hugs! I thought it would be fitting to take a shot or two of them in the background ..well because… Krystal and Kaleb was doing a lot of hugging (and kissing) that morning!


A few short blocks away is this great FIND- a store named after my birth month ‘JANUARY’. It houses the coolest finds- namely antiques, wood and metal crafts, home furnishings and many other neat things.   



A little color twist for a close-up.


Krystal and Kaleb: Thank you, thank you, thank you! For your patience, your kindness and more importantly your love for each other. It shows and I can’t wait to capture even MORE love on your wedding day in May! It will be here soon : ) 

Take a look at more images of their engagement session here. Happy Thursday! Anxiously awaiting comments : ))

Lifestyle: Family *Kirby*

Several weeks ago, I did a super quick Commercial session of 3 super kids and it was not half bad! Well, it was shared ‘everywhere’ and in an instant I got a call from a new client (Kirby) who LOVED the images and wanted to have some Lifestyle images done for her family as well. When we arrived at her ‘farm’, we were blown away not only by the neighborhood and property but how incredibly n-i-c-e she is! Kirby and her WHOLE family welcomed Cat and I with big open arms on our ‘weekend’ shoot AND put up with us overnight -how brave (and generous)!! I can’t ask for a kinder and warmer group of people and I hope these images some how show how amazing this family is.

Kirby & Matt: Thank you both so much for this opportunity and I can’t wait to share more. In the mean time, click here for more images : )
