Hello friends we are Kevin and Anna, a Lexington, Kentucky-based husband and wife wedding photography team.



WELCOME TO OUR BLOG

Our story began at a local rock climbing gym, where we met and quickly fell for each other. Our love for rock climbing, hiking & the great outdoors made us a perfect match. 

Our wedding took place in 2012 at Lost River Cave in Bowling Green, Kentucky. We cherish our wedding photos and all of the amazing moments that our photographer captured for us. Our passion is to do the same for you. We understand the magnitude and importance of capturing your wedding day because it only happens once.

Sweet Summer Wedding at Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky

Kari and Kevin were married on a beautiful summer day in June at Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky. Kari looked gorgeous in her stunning and whimsical wedding dress. Her girls wore long light blue dresses, and their bouquets were filled with white, pink, and blue flowers. Kevin and his groomsmen looked handsome in their grey suits and pink ties. Kari and Kevin were married in a beautiful garden overlooking the Club House at Buffalo Trace Distillery. We loved celebrating with them and taking photos all over the historic grounds. We have loved getting to know Kevin and Kari over the last few years. They are such a sweet, fun, and thoughtful couple, and we were so blessed to capture their love story!

Kari and Kevin first met through a mutual friend. They started to become best friends and couldn’t get enough of each other. Kari thinks that Kevin is the most thoughtful and romantic man on the planet. On August 12, 2018, Kari and Kevin went to Red Rock Amphitheater to see one of Kari’s favorite artists, Brandi Carlile. Kari had traveled to see her perform all over the country for the past five years. In April of 2017, Kevin went with her. That trip, he had told her that he loved her for the first time. He fell in love with her as an artist and knew that he wanted to propose to Kari at one of her concerts. Kevin had handwritten a two-page letter to Brandi and had called Kari’s father to ask permission to marry her. He somehow snuck the ring out to Colorado and into Red Rock without Kari catching on. While Kari slipped out to use the restroom, Kevin told everyone around him that he was going to propose. So he had lots of people ready to take photos and videos of the special moment. Brandi started playing Kari’s favorite song, The Story, when Kevin got down on one knee. Kari, of course, said, YES! After the concert, their Airbnb picked them up with a bottle of champagne, glasses, and a rose. It was the perfect proposal and everything Kari could have ever wanted. Kari’s parents had mailed her grandmother’s diamond to a local jewelry store and placed it in a setting that Kari had shown Kevin and loved. Their song, The Story, by Brandi Carlile, was played at their wedding for their last dance. Kari and Kevin, we are so happy for you all. We wish you many years of love, happiness, and adventure. Thank you so much for choosing us to capture your special day!
