Taylor & Wesley

A Lower Town & Downtown Paducah Engagement Session

My first engagement session of the year began with these two and man, was it a good one! I was excited when Taylor first inquired with me about their upcoming wedding, because I realized she was marrying Wesley and although I don’t him really well, we grew up in the same church! The more she and I emailed back and forth, the more connections we made. Then we began to plan for their engagement sessions and I got even more excited. They wanted something a little different and since we weren’t sure if things would be blooming yet, we found a great indoor location for some variety! Lauren with the Smedley-Yeiser house allowed us to take advantage of the AWESOME work they’ve done to it and we began there!

Wesley showed up a little nervous and they explained to me that he was like Chandler Bing when it came to photos (Friends fans…you get me!) But they both totally rocked their session and I’m so excited to show you them off to you! They are completely relaxed with one another, he knows just how to make her laugh and when he looks at her you can tell he still has a major crush on her. Enjoy some of my favorites below!
