Shannon & Peters Downtown Lexington After Wedding Session by Louisville Wedding Photographer Brandi Potter
I really love these two and the love that they share for one another. I am constantly amazed that I get to work with such happy people all of the time, and their wedding was definitely a great one to kick start my year with. We decided to do an After Wedding Session because the day of their wedding was a bit chilly and really windy and I didn’t want to take a chance with Sharon’s hair messing up before the ceremony. I also didn’t want her to get her gorgeous Hayley Paige gown filthy beforehand, because we all know I love making people lay on the ground.
We met downtown near where they got married and just enjoyed walking around short street, while stopping to take photos. It’s been quite a while since I’ve shot on short street so it was really refreshing to do it again and see the growth in my work from a spot I use to frequent. It’s also really neat seeing how the areas changed, and how much Lexington is actually growing now. I’m really hoping it continues to be such a cool city as the years go on, and that I can shoot more amazing couples in downtown. It can be nice having a break from the normal forest type sessions that I normally shoot (although that’s what I prefer), and a good refresher to try some new cool urban things.
