Mr. and Mrs. Whitehead

Thank you kindly for the privilege of photographing your wedding day! The pair of you have been yet an other couple who have been so calm and collected in the midst of what can often become a chaotic, stressful day! I hope you love your images from all three of your sessions! And please remember that regardless of the fact your wedding day has passed - I'm still here to help with whatever comes along! We'll talk about the album when you get back from the honeymoon.... Congrats!

James and Rebecca

You two are so adorable together... I wish you all the happiness in the world! Speaking of the world... I think everyone in the world needs to sit back, and take a lesson or two from James and Rebecca on how to be laid back, calm, and cool on your own wedding day! The plan for the day was to enjoy a blissful late-spring outdoor wedding... Well, anyone familiar with Kentucky weather knows that planning anything outside is the ultimate risk! Well, June 13 proved no exception to our ever changing climate. The hours passed with clear blue skies, drizzle, and the occasional downpour. 6:00 crept closer with no guarantee of nice, sunny weather. Luckily, God did part the clouds for just enough time to wipe off the chairs, and have a beautiful ceremony! With all the uncertainty for Rebecca and James to face, they couldn't have been cooler about the situation. They both knew that where they tied the knot didn't matter. The important thing was THIS WAS THEIR WEDDING DAY and nothing can take that away! Not even Friday-the-13th RAIN. I'm so proud of their great attitude. Hats off!

Congratulations to Dee and Michael!

Congrats Dee and Michael! You two are such a sweet couple - you'll definitely be happy together forever! Thank you for the honor of choosing me to photograph your wedding. I hope you love and cherish the photographs from your wedding always. Just watching how the two of you talk to each other, look at each other, anyone can tell you are two peas in a pod. Best of luck! (And Dave Matthews Band is in Louisville August 1st!)

Fellow Photogs...

To all you hobbyists or aspiring photographers out there - -I strongly encourage you to play! I heard Parker Pfister, a great photographer in North Carolina, speak on this very thing. He is a wedding photographer by trade and his past performance has caused him to be in great demand. Weddings are fast-paced, stressful, and sometimes not very rewarding, as you can imagine, so in order to keep himself fresh and excited about photography, he goes out to the streets of Asheville, or wherever he is, and photographs whatever he finds interesting. The homeless, random city sculptures, and early morning mist, to name a few, have acted as a honing stone to him for years. I think we can all learn from this no matter what we do from 9 to 5. We need to keep it fun and remember why we chose our profession in the first place. An Esteemed colleague of mine and I ventured out to the lively streets of Lexington, Kentucky. This drastic change-of-style really lit a fire under me. see...

New baby at the Fladung house!

Thanks Leslie and Nick for the privilege of photographing your sweet family! It is always an adventure when there's a naked baby involved! No sweat - that's what washers are for! I hope you love your photographs, and I hope to see your daughter when she's sitting up!
