Anyone who has been to Natural Bridge State Park in Kentucky knows that the terrain is beautiful. What a great choice for an engagement session by Audrey and Robert, a couple from Ashland, Kentucky. Not to mention the perfect timing for fall colors!
This couple is cute and laid back. I love the fact that they got engaged on a Disney cruise, because I absolutely adore Disney! Also, their choice of location for their engagements tells me they are going to be amazing clients.
We met up at the Hemlock Lodge in Slade, KY and hiked the .5 mile trek (sounds easy but its very very uphill!) to the top of the natural bridge for amazing photographs during the "golden hour". This is the optimum time for portraits, the 1-2 hours before sunset because you get that beautiful glow in your images. This look cannot be replicated at any other time of the day except the 1-2 hours right after sunrise—but who wants to be up that early!?
There were many amazing shots, but I would like to share with you a few of my favorites. And oh my goodness, Audrey's ring that Robert had custom made for her is gorgeous!!
From the words of the bride-to-be:
"We really enjoyed our time with you. You guys made it so easy! And the pictures look fantastic."
I am looking forward to photographing their nautical-themed wedding here in Kentucky next June - I am absolutely positive that every detail will be romantic, beautiful and completely fun! Thank you for choosing me to photograph your special moments.
