I couldn’t wait to share this engagement session for so many reasons.

For one, it seems like ages since Natalie and Tommy booked me for their wedding, but we’ve been holding off their¬†engagement¬†session. They, being the awesome couple they are, have been going along the “Bourbon Trail” and decided we should shoot at Maker’s Mark Distillery.

This was my 1st time shooting (or even being) there and it’s perfect. Lot’s of lush greenery, buildings, pathways, bridges (covered and uncovered),…well, I could go on for a while. The fact is they picked a perfect location…but hey, they picked each other and got me to do the photography, so we’ve pretty much learned to trust their decision making. :)

The other big “1st” of last Saturday was that this was my daughter’s 1st session as my assistant. She’s recently shown some interest in photography and is always so helpful anyway. I couldn’t be prouder to have her see how I work, but also to share one of my biggest passions with her. I couldn’t have asked for a better assistant…hopefully we can get her shooting.

With all of that said, I give you some of Natalie and Tommy’s photographs from their engagement session.
