Lauren & Zack - Fall Wedding at Canyon Run Ranch

Anekdota Studio


Lauren and Zack's wedding day was one of the coldest I've ever photographed, but looking at the two of them together and you'd never it no it. Their happiness exudes warmth. 


One of my favorite things about their wedding was the venue itself, Canyon Run Ranch is such a gorgeous place and was made even more beautiful with the work of Samantha from Samantha Joy Events. 


When Zach picked up the engagement ring for Lauren, he was so excited he couldn't wait to propose. Within 20 minutes of picking it up he asked her to marry him while they were walking through their neighborhood park under some of Lauren's favorite trees.

Jordan & Zach - Fall Wedding at the Hockensmith Barn in Louisville

Anekdota Studio


Jordan and Zach's wedding was beautiful. They held it at the Hockensmith Barn in Louisville at the Parklands of Floyds Fork. The weather was perfect, not too hot and not too cold. And, the light was incredible. 


Jordan and Zach met at a Valentine's day dance in college. After dancing the night away they became friends and remained just friends for a couple of years. While Jordan was traveling in London, Zach let her know he was interested in more than just a friendship with her. By the end of the summer they were officially a couple. 


Last year on a trip to Arizona to visit friends, Zach proposed to Jordan on top of Devils Bridge in Sedona. Of course, she said yes. 


I really loved all the attention to detail Jordan and Zach put into this wedding. The rich tones of the color palette were the perfect complement to fall.

Kayla & Brett - Wedding at Buffalo Trace

Anekdota Studio


Kayla and Brett met while working at Bed, Bath and Beyond. At first Kayla thought Brett hated her because he was so quiet. As it turned out, she was completely off the mark, and eventually they ended up dating. 


Kayla and Brett had their wedding at Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, KY. Everything about their day was beautiful, from the couple themselves, the details, and the venue. I especially loved getting to photograph Kayla and Brett inside the barrel room. 


Kayla and Brett had started planning their wedding before actually getting engaged, so Kayla wasn't expecting any big proposal. Brett, however, had a plan. He knew that she liked Harry Potter, so he wrote her a Harry Potter themed poem and set the engagement ring on a wand.  She was thoroughly surprised.

Emily & Dan - Engagement Session at Deer Lick Cave

Anekdota Studio


Emily and Dan met me for their engagement session at Deer Lick Cave in Brecksville earlier this fall. It was such a beautiful morning to spend in the woods. 


Dan first met Emily in High School when one of his friends started dating her friend in High School. However, instead of asking her out right away he played it cool and waited until the Homecoming Dance. He asked her dance and later that night they exchanged phone numbers. They've been together ever since. 


Emily and Dan have a favorite towpath they like to walk. On this path there's a particular spot they usually stop to sit and look at the water. One day, they were looking through the rocks near their spot. Suddenly, Dan bent down proclaiming that he had found a geode. When Emily turned around to look, he was down on one knee with a ring box he had made from a geode. Of course, she said yes!

I can't wait for Emily and Dan's wedding next year!

Ashley & Chris - Garden Court Wedding in Louisville

Ashley & Chris' wedding at Gardencourt in Louisville was so beautiful! It was the perfect fall wedding.


Ashley and Chris met when Chris moved to Charlotte and mutual friends connected them. She thought she was just introducing him to the city, but he had other plans. It wasn't long before they were dating.
