Brooke & Baron had the dreamiest wedding at the Bowman Field Hangar at Louisville Executive Aviation. When you have soft magical light and airplanes coming at you from all angles, you know that it is going to be a good wedding. Boho-chic would probably be the way I would have to describe Brooke and Baron’s wedding. Nothing like sophistication with a slight boho twist. Please take a second to awe at Brooke’s mismatched bridesmaids dresses, as well the groomsmen’s luchador masks, which also made an appearance during Brooke & Baron’s first dance. All the love for these two and their fun and spontaneous souls!
Just a few months ago we held an Elopement Giveaway with Happy Camper Films! It was so fun to receive submissions daily from some super rad couples.
We had about 30 submissions flood into our inbox over the course of a month and our only regret is that we couldn’t choose them all!!
But we are BEYOND thrilled with the couple we have chosen.
From the second we received the submission from Sarah + Scott our hearts were sold. Their focus was not on the destination or the elopement itself…it was focused on just finally getting to be married to one another and the bonus was that they were down to go wherever.
Among the many incredible couples + who entered our giveaway with breathtaking plans, these two just stood out to us in every way possible.
We could go down the list forever. They’re adventurous dog lovers who are head over heels for one another. They are hard workers with awesome style. They quoted The Office AND Step Brothers within minutes of meeting them. They’re easy going, HILARIOUS, so much fun, + have the kind of personalities that just make you feel like group hugging at the end of the night. It’s easy to say we LOVE them!
We knew they were so deserving of this giveaway from the very first email and it was only confirmed tenfold when we met them for the first time.
So, without further ado, we are so excited to finally introduce you to Sarah + Scott (or #sbsquared, as they have adorably nicknamed themselves 🙊🙌🏻)
Together, these two own and run a luxury dog hotel in Louisville and are so freaking in love + filled with joy that it’s contagious.
They will be road tripping out west this December and we will all be meeting up with in…drum roll, please…MOAB, UTAH where they will be eloping!!! It’s going to be absolutely gorgeous. We are sooo excited to get to be a part of this exciting adventure with them!!
As industry experts, our hope is that shoots like these will inspire and encourage brides to make their wedding reflect their own unique, distinctive style. Below is a a recent shoot I planned to show off an intimate modern folk wedding that is a little off of the beaten path.
Shaker Village is a historic gem in the heart of Kentucky’s rolling hills, and the inspiration for this shoot. The simplicity of this 1800s building provided the perfect source for our moody, folksy vibe. Our ceremony nook resides in an intimate attic space, furnished with pampas grass, brass candlestick holders, taper candles, and layered vintage rugs. Both the ceremony nook and the dining area were only lit by window and candle light, adding to the simplicity and romance of the shoot.
Our bride held a textured bouquet which was filled with bright caramel antike roses, white peonies, dried hydrangea, white sweet pea and white ranunculus, wrapped with a golden-yellow dip-dyed ribbon, amongst her soft Ti Adora gown. We chose a simple ribbon-tie for our groom and a brown tweed suit. Textured stoneware, amber champagne flutes, fresh jams, intricate hand-embroidered napkins, and scripted egg escort cards filled the tablescape. This shoot honors skilled craftsmanship, both old and new, putting a modern twist on simplistic folk.

After visiting the newest bridal shop in town, Modern Trousseau, I instantly feel in love with the idea of playing around with their beautiful gowns. Brides, their shop is just as stunning as their gowns, definitely check them out if you are in search of THE gown.

Sam & Joey decided they wanted to do an in home engagement session, and it was absolutely beautiful in every way. They are the most playful and down-to-earth couple, which made photographing them cozied up around the house even more fun. These are probably now my favorite types of sessions, so if any other engaged couples are interested or any married couples want to get on board for an anniversary session, I am ready for ya.
