When I first met with Nicole and Nathan last November to talk about their wedding photography needs, Nicole asked if I’d be willing to come to Louisville (where they live) for their engagement session. UM YES, OF COURSE!
Shooting in new places and new cities is so much fun for me, so I was pretty pumped to be traveling to Louisville for this one! And their session certainly did not disappoint.
Nicole is an architect, and so she obviously wanted to work certain buildings, structures and architecture into their session. Shooting in the city is my jam, so you know I was game.
We started off in the St. James Court neighborhood. IT IS GORGEOUS, you guys! I didn’t even know this area of Louisville even existed, and I was absolutely blown away. It’s full of older homes with beautiful character and charm, but the lush greenery balances it all out so well. If you’re ever in the Louisville area, you must check it out.
After perusing the area, we headed downtown to a couple of different locations.We popped underneath a bridge and dodged traffic for a few photos and then went right down the street to the Louisville Riverfront Park. Not only does this area offer a beautiful view of the Louisville skyline in addition to the four bridges that cross back over to Indiana, but it’s also a perfect place to watch the sunset over the water.
We ended their session at the Heighold House Facade. If you’re not familiar with this, it’s basically the front of an older home that was moved from its original location to the place it is now as a tourist attraction. It’s definitely something to see if you’re in the area!
Exploring Louisville with Nicole and Nathan while documenting their love was SO much fun, and I can hardly wait for their New Year’s Eve wedding in Jasper this December!
