Becky & Orion - Playful Backyard Wedding

Anekdota Studio

Becky & Orion's wedding was a playful backyard event with their closest friends and family. All of the details, from the giant paper flowers to the mini-nerf guns for guests made the wedding fun for everyone. 

I really enjoyed working with Becky and Orion. Their family and friends were incredibly welcoming. It was clear that these two both love one another dearly and have an incredible family and friend support system.

Congrats to the newly weds! And a special thanks to all the vendors that made this day possible:

Stephanie & Dan - Engagement Session at the Arboretum

Anekdota Studio

I met Stephanie and Dan at the Arboretum for their engagement session on a surprisingly pleasant day after a week of rain. The Arboretum is not only one of my favorite photography locations it's also one of my favorite places just to go for a walk. 

Stephanie and Dan love to travel together.  Two years ago while walking on the beach in Puerto Rico, Dan said to Stephanie, "I could travel with you forever. Would you be ok with that?" She immediately replied, "Yes, absolutely! Fun!" to which he responded by getting down on one knee and asking her to marry him. Of course, she said yes to that question too. 


I had so much fun photographing Stephanie and Dan's engagement session, in large part because they were so much fun to be around. I can't wait until their wedding in May! Congrats Stephanie and Dan!

Kayla & Brett - Wintery Engagement Session

Anekdota Studio

Kayla really had her heart set on a snowy engagement session. I was worried it wasn't going to work out, thankfully we were able to get this session in on the one day we actually got snow flurries this year. 

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. 

They 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. 

I'm really looking forward to Kayla and Brett's wedding later this year!

Ashley & Koby - Wedding at Oasis in Paris, KY

Anekdota Studio

I couldn't imagine a better wedding to end the 2016 season. Ashley & Koby's wedding was a beautiful affair in Paris, Kentucky at Oasis.

Ashley and Koby met when they were working in close proximity. She was working at a bank near the paint store that he managed. While it wasn't love at first sight per se, when they finally did fall for one another it was the real deal. 

Koby got Ashley's engagement ring months before he actually proposed. He carried it with him everywhere and would pull it out to show people all the time. It's a miracle that nobody spilled the beans to Ashley. Finally while they were decorating for Christmas last year, he asked her to marry him and of course she said yes. 

After the wedding ceremony we managed to sneak away for some photos around Paris, Kentucky. It's a really cute town with some neat spots for photos. I was really impressed with the whole day and couldn't be happier for Ashley & Koby. 

Congratulations Ashley & Koby! We enjoyed photographing your wedding and were honored to be included.

Brynn & Blake - Wedding at Gingerwoods in Prospect Kentucky

Anekdota Studio

As we pulled up to Gingerwoods for Brynn & Blake's wedding a torrential downpour started. We sprinted to the venue with all of our gear trying to keep from getting completely soaked. The colorful decorations and bright flowers banished the dreariness of the weather. And even though the ceremony ended up getting pushed back a bit as we waited for the rain to clear, we ended up with some of the most beautiful light imaginable. 

Brynn & Blake met seven years ago through friends.  Blake proposed to Brynn while they were vacationing in Mexico with family. He had thrown her off the scent, by telling her it wasn't the right time and he wanted to save more for a better ring. Needless to say, she was happily surprised when that turned out just to be a ploy to keep her from discovering his plans to propose.

Despite the weather and having to wait for the rain to clear, Brynn & Blake handled it all well and in the end it was a truly beautiful wedding. Congratulations to the newlyweds!

A special thanks to all the vendors that helped make this wedding so special:

Venue: Gingerwoods Event Hall
Cake: Shell's Sweet Treats by Michelle Himes
