Some stunning photographs by the talented Lyndsey A. Photography

Morgan + Frankie | Louisville, KY

We first met Morgan and Frankie only a few days before they got married, and from the first hand shake we knew we were going to have fun at this wedding! Morgan is hilarious and constantly the life of the party; Frankie is incredibly encouraging and always up lifting... together they make an awesome couple and perfect bride and groom! These two have a love for one another that will last a lifetime, and it was a joy to watch their marriage begin!

Michelle + Collin | Louisville, KY

This day could not have been more PERFECT! The weather was absolutely amazing, the venue was gorgeous, and Michelle was a stunning bride! We spent many months emailing back and forth always ending our emails with "Thanks, the other Michelle"! When September 23rd finally came it was a little bitter sweet because we had created such a friendship and we knew the big day was finally here! We spent the majority of the morning laughing with the amazing bridal party and tearing up as Michelle read her letter from Collin... it was at this moment that I realized their wedding had been a long time coming. These two had dated for many years, and they were going to finally become husband and wife! It was a joy being a part of their love story, we saw a small glimpse of their much longer love story to come! 
Love you guys, 
-The other Michelle

Maggie + Andrew | Louisville, KY

Maggie and Andrew exude every bit of elegance as stated best by the best best man in his speech. They are both very successful and have such a kind and genuine heart. It truly was a joy capturing all their special moments throughout the day!

One of the sweetest moments from the entire day came when we were getting Andrew ready for the first look. I looked at him and said, “She looks stunning!” Without any thought or pause Andrew’s immediate response was, “I have no doubt of that.” He knew before he ever laid eyes on his bride that she was perfect! Such an amazing glimpse of how much these two love one another and what the rest of their life will look like. Their marriage will be a testimony of what true love is!

These two are some of the most amazing people we know, they have such a joyful heart and relentless love for one another! This day exuded elegance and grace everywhere, and capturing it was a blast! Since we arrived to start filming, all they wanted to do was see each other. They couldn't wait to start their journey together as a married couple and we can't wait to watch more of their love story unfold!

Heather + Jacob | Bowling Green, KY

LOVE LOVE LOVE... not only was July 8th an absolutely gorgeous day, it was a day full of amazing joy and pure love in the air! Heather and Jacob have such an easy love for one another, it does not at all look difficult for them to genuinely love one another! They invited us to their rehearsal dinner, most rehearsals go over the plans of the wedding day and celebrate the night before with a dinner... they had a different kind of celebration! They decided to have a worship night to prepare their hearts and minds for what the next day would bring. It was an amazing way for them to share their last night together before they would become husband and wife! These two have been meant to be for such a long time, it's amazing to see them fit perfectly into being husband and wife!

Meredith + Luke | Louisville, KY

Some weddings leave lasting marks on us, Meredith and Luke, your wedding is one we will never forget and cherish in our hearts forever! This wedding video will be one we look back on to remind us of why we love what we do. From the moment they selected us, we were looking forward to filming their wedding! The entire day was so incredibly perfect whether it was the weather, the flowers, the bridal party, or the couple! On June 24th it had a 90% chance of rain, many prayers and "rain plan" options came into play... only God can change a 90% chance of rain into THIS wedding day! It was absolute joy from the moment the sun rose and a party to the end. We consider it an honor to be a part of your big day. Cheers to one of the happiest couples we know!

Meredith + William | Engagement

The engagement videos continue... we had a blast capturing these two in front of the camera! It was a simple evening spent at the Kentucky Horse Park just frolicking in the cove! These two decided to sit in front of our cameras and share a couple stories about their engagement, first date, and first impressions! It gave them the opportunity to share their wedding date with friends and family as well as learn a little more about the happy couple before they say "I do!" The response was FANTASTIC! Meredith and Will were naturals in front of the camera and did not complain once, they spent the evening in ninety degree weather (we were are really sweaty!) and they had no problem snuggling and dancing the entire time! We can't wait to capture them again August 11th!

Shelby + John | Danville, KY

Shelby and John have such a love for one another and a passion for the Lord greater than most... especially on their wedding day! Shelby constantly took in the moments of the day, she was so relaxed and giggled all the way up until she saw John for the first time! And wow was that INCREDIBLE... not only did everyone who attended the wedding experience the pure joy and shock on John's face, but we did as well! This entire wedding day was full of genuine emotion, excitement, and love. We spent the entire day admiring the beauty of this place and cherishing the love John and Shelby have for one another! As the best man stated in his speech, their excitement will last them a lifetime, and what an amazing way to spend the rest of your life with someone who is constantly excited to be in your presence!

Phaedra + Winston | Louisville, KY

Phaedra & Winston make us fall in love all over again, these two have such a contagious love for one another and have some of the best friends imaginable!

But really… We couldn’t stop laughing all day, it was hard for us to find a shot that you couldn't hear us cackling in the background. Throughout these past few weeks, one of us would be in the other room and hear laughter coming from the office, we always knew… they were editing Phaedra and Winston’s wedding! These two not only selected hilarious bridesmaids and groomsmen, but they selected their PERFECT spouse! By no means was it hard for us to film the two of them, they truly made our jobs easy! We love you both and cherish the friendship we have created!

Nisa + Matthew | Louisville, KY

Pure Joy. You can see it all over their faces every time they are together. The amount of joy and happiness Nisa and Matt exuded on their wedding day was unreal! From the moment we met Nisa and Matt, it was an instant friendship! We met for drinks downtown which was intended to be a quick run through of the day, turned into an evening out with friends talking about life, travels, honeymoons and marriage! (not until the end did we actually talk about the wedding day!) This exemplifies exactly who Nisa and Matt are; they care about the time spent with others, they cherish the friendships created, and they love to laugh! Judging by the way they have loved each other as friends, through dating, in engagement; we have no doubt that this couple will have an amazing, loving, and joy-filled marriage!

Blair + Ben | Lexington, KY

We knew from the start that this wedding day was going to be full of love, joy, and TONS of laughter! As Kyle and I were driving to this wedding we could not help but to think how amazing it was that we were able to start our wedding season off with such an awesome couple! Of course, with our first wedding of the season comes some nerves and anxiety. We aren't kidding when we say the second our feet stepped out of the car, all those nerves dissipated and we were overcome with so much peace! Peace from the beautiful day, peace from the venue, peace from the wonderful bride and groom. We immediately got into our groove and started filming like we hadn't missed a beat! April 8th was a dream, everything from the weather, to the bridal party, to the families were incredible! Ben and Blair did something we absolutely love; they decided to read each others letters in front of one another. The raw emotion that comes with that is unmatched and we LOVED it! It was so personal and so genuine, they got to laugh together, cry together and share such sweet memories in front of one another!

Hillary + Luke | Lexington, KY

Hillary and Luke may have been some of the kindest people we have ever filmed, from the moment we met them at a meeting over a year before their wedding, we new we'd be friends! Their love for one another is something to cherish for a lifetime, it was an honor to capture and witness such an amazing love. Editing this wedding was a dream, we got excited to wake up and listen to these two laugh at each other! What started out as us filming their wedding as ended with life long friends meeting for coffee, sending Christmas cards, camping and kayaking (the camping and kayaking are the guys idea)! We love you guys so much!

Ashley + Zac | Lexington, KY

Oh goodness... the video that went viral! We love this couple so much, Ashley happened to be our photographer (Shining Light Photography) for our wedding so the pressure was on! We were so thankful and honored to be able to capture her wedding day too! Zac might be the nicest human in the world, he has a constant care for others and an ability to dance like no other. Not only was their wedding day filling with laughter, joy, and abundant love, a tree decided to join the fun! Oops! The entire morning was gorgeous sunlight, a slight breeze and a perfect wedding day. It just so happens after Ashley walks down the aisle a massive gust of wind comes (sending the communion table flying) and the tree directly behind them comes crashing down! Luckily, no one was hurt and it was a wedding of a lifetime! Our cameras were rolling so we were able to capture the whole thing... that night we knew we had to publish the tree falling (with Zac and Ashley's approval) and by the time we woke up the next morning it had gone viral! It was picked up by local news stations, then international news stations, and eventually was shown on FOX News, Inside Edition, BBC, and many others! We are still amazed and will forever have a special place in our hearts for this wedding day! 

Melody + Keith | Lexington, KY

Melody and Keith knew from the moment the day started who it was all about, they focused on honoring God and honoring each other from the moment we starting rolling the cameras all the way until the send off, and for a lifetime to continue! Melody was full of snuggles all day with such a sweet and gentle voice constantly encouraging and cherish each moment.  Keith loved his bride so much, all day we saw from the looks, the tears, the hugs, and the kisses; he adores Melody so much! They were so in the moment of their day, I don’t think they noticed the cameras once!

Lindsay + Drew | Louisville, KY

Lindsay and Drew made us laugh nonstop, they were making jokes and cracking us up from the moment we walk into the hotel rooms! Lindsay was spunky and sweet, she carried herself with such joy and passion, she loves Drew with all her heart and that love was so evident on their wedding day. Drew was hilarious all day, Kyle could not stop laughing enough to hold the camera still, but we could tell he cherishes Lindsay and honors her with the ways he would encourage and support her. They had a rooftop wedding overlooking the Ohio River, along with an indoor reception just a flight down!

Emily + Ty | Shelbyville, KY

Emily and Ty were such a sweet couple to work with, they had so many friends and family who loved each of them so much. The day started out to be a tad rainy but ended with gorgeous ceremony weather and an amazing reception and send off. They chose to get married in a barn with open doors on either side, overlooking an open field. The reception was on the same farm just a short trolley ride away! Although the weather was a bit questionable for an outdoor wedding neither of them showed an ounce of worry, they cherished the special day and knew nothing could ruin their joy and love for each other.
