I shot their engagement session back in October, when the leaves were all pretty. We actually did a sunrise session. That's when I figured out how amazing morning sessions are: I started the day with a good hike (all my couples will get a workout during their sessions), the light was perfectly soft anddd they made mimosas halfway through. We ended the session with coffee and breakfast at Eggs Over Frankfort. See? Morning sessions are amazing.Read More
Coffee is a really great thing. Sunergos is also a really great thing. And I was ecstatic when Amy wanted to include both sunergos coffee and smoke bombs into her senior session (she's pretty cool).
Horses, barns and wading barefoot in a creek . . . pretty much makes up my kind of engagement photoshoot. When Madison mentioned wanting to do photos at the family farm in Colombia, Kentucky, I got all excited. Hunter and Madison were high school sweethearts and have been together since they were 14. They're adorable.
of dust and green lush
tears chasing down ebony skin
some tears of sweat, some tears of heartache
they fall on thick, dusty soil that burns red and orange
burns with heat, too
my soul thirsts and then, the thirst is quenched
all at once
thirsty, because she pulls on my hand with frail fingers and hollow eyes
she whispers, her voice filled more with plea and less with question
"no." i choke back. "not your mama."
but i pull her closer
thirst is quenched because of joy & hope & Jesus
all at once
joy dances in the tears of sweat and of pain
it dances on the red streets
hope is written in her eyes, deeper than sorrow
inked in her skin
it is always there -- hope
Morgan and Alex are a real cool, goofy and smokin attractive couple I had the privilege of photographing last month. They’re both musicians out in Los Angeles (I shot this in downtown LA, traffic sucks, but the city doesn’t so it’s okay). Go check out Alex’s band “The Heirs” and Morgan is under “Morgan St. Jean” on spotify — they both work very hard and have really groovy music.
Also yes, I shot at the Broad which is overdone, I know. But I’m from Kentucky so I just gawked at all the fancy LA stuff cause I’m cool like that. Enjoy the photos and you should listen to “Lies” by The Heirs while you’re at it.
