As a Frankfort wedding photographer, I live for the electric charge of love in the air. I live for laughter echoing through the venue, and newlywed smiles. So I live for Travis and Stephanie, a couple whose relaxed and fun-loving spirit made their wedding a joy to capture. They are the kind of couple that lights up a room. Their energy is infectious and their love for each other is evident.
As a Frankfort wedding photographer, I captured their genuine wedding day—no pretenses, just pure, unadulterated love. They envisioned a wedding that was as laid-back and joyful as their own love story, surrounded by their closest family and friends, which was guest count of around 30. They are adventurers at heart, always ready for an exciting experience, and their wedding reflected this adventurous spirit.
From the moment they decided to walk down the aisle together—eschewing tradition to symbolize their equal partnership—I knew this wedding would be special. Stephanie's playful twist on her second dress for the reception left Travis (and everyone else) in awe. These moments create the wedding dreams. As a seasoned Frankfort wedding photographer, I was there, camera in hand, to catch every sparkling second. Their vows were heartfelt and personal, promising love and endless adventures together.
At the end of the aisle, in a move that was quintessentially Travis, he playfully placed Stephanie’s veil over his own head. This elicited hearty laughter from their guests. It was a light-hearted, spontaneous moment that perfectly encapsulated their playful and loving relationship, making for unique wedding photos that they will cherish forever.
I used my colored lights to transform the rickhouse, usually a space echoing aging bourbon's quiet slumber, into a magical setting for their photos. And the garden area at the top of the hill? It was like a fairy tale scene in May. Kentucky weather, the ever-present wildcard at a Buffalo Trace Distillery wedding, brought rain. Far from dampening the day, the rain added a romantic, cinematic quality to the entire day. We took shelter under an awning for their first look and family photos, transforming a potential challenge into a collection of intimate and heartfelt snapshots.
I approach every wedding like I’m capturing the most memorable moments for my best friends—and Travis and Stephanie were no exception. In my wedding photography, I focus on the candid moments—the belly laughs, the stolen kisses, the happy tears—that tell the true story of a couple’s love. I’m there to capture raw, unscripted moments couples will treasure for a lifetime.
Travis and Stephanie’s wedding was a beautiful reminder of why I adore what I do. Their day was filled with love, laughter, and friendship. As a photographer, I was honored to capture these once-in-a-lifetime moments for two incredible people.
