Lauren & Jacob, A Paducah Lower Town Engagement Session

Jacob-Lauren-Paducah-Lower-Town-Engagements-023

They say, “Third Time’s a Charm!” and it was definitely true for this engagement session. Lauren & Jacob go to school at UK in Lexington so we knew booking their e-session would be a bit challenging! We had no idea it would take three tries! Since they are physical therapy students, trips home are few and far between. Every time they planned to come home for their shoot, it rained…Not just rained, I mean, it was gross outside…including this past weekend. We set a time to shoot and of course the forecast changed at the last minute and it was suppose to rain right in the 2 hour window we had decided on. We talked the night before and decided to shoot at Noon. If you’re a photographer, you’re thinking “What?! NOON?!” That’s the absolute worse time to shoot! But I trusted my weather app that said it would be overcast, which would allow us to shoot most likely anywhere. It worked out perfectly! The overcast skies made the blooming tree colors pop, we had free reign on where to shoot because there was no harsh sunlight, and the rain held off until the very end.

These two met as little bitty freshmen at UK have been together for six years! In the midst of PT school, they’re planning a wedding for Labor Day weekend. Their e-session was a blast so I honestly can’t wait for their big day!
