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.

Nicole & John - A Bluegrass Farm Wedding

Anekdota Studio

Nicole & John's wedding at Mt. Brilliant Farm was so beautiful. There were so many unique details! I particularly loved the colors of this wedding: coral, mint green, and cream. 

One of my favorite things about working with Nicole & John is how real they are. These two are both kind, caring, and down-to-earth. They put their energy into making those around them comfortable and happy and didn't spend time sweating the small things. It made working with them not just easy but a serious pleasure.

Nicole and John started dating after she moved back to Kentucky from New York. John had his grandmother's ring reset for Nicole and had originally thought of planning a grand engagement moment. But, after he picked up the ring, he couldn't resist asking her right away. That night, while they were walking their dog, Nina, at the Henry Clay Estate, he proposed and of course she said yes. 


We were able to steal a few minutes away right before sunset to take pictures in the gardens at Mt. Brilliant. After the hustle of the wedding day it was nice to get a few moments in such a gorgeous setting. Congrats Nicole & John! You are both amazing and I am so excited for you.

Callie & Dustin's Wedding at Elk Creek Vineyards

Anekdota Studio

Callie & Dustin's wedding at Elk Creek Vineyard was beautiful. It was a gorgeous setting for this incredible couple's nuptials. 

Callie & Dustin met in college. They quickly became good friends and would seek each other out for advice. It took a few years, and a few bouts of dating the wrong people, before they finally realized that perhaps the person they sought for comfort and console, was the person for them. After many nights of talking on the roof of Dustin's frat house, they finally ended up together.

Dustin proposed to Callie last New Year's eve. It was cold, they got kicked out of the first bar, and no one in their group seemed to be having much fun. But all the flaws with the night were balanced out when Dustin proposed and Callie said yes. 

Congrats to the newly weds! Thanks for including me in your wedding day.

Amanda & Johnathan - Lexington Signature Club Wedding

Anekdota Studio

Amanda & Johnathan's wedding at The Signature Club was beautiful—an intimate family only ceremony followed by fantastic reception. Not only was the weather perfect, but the company was exceptional. 


It's always fun to photograph weddings for other event professionals. Amanda and Johnathan both spend their days working on other people's events. It was my pleasure to photograph the memories of those who help make memories for others. 


Congratulations Amanda & Johnathan!  Thanks for including me in your special day!
