Bridals with Stephanie: Old State House Museum. Arkansas Wedding Photographer

Classic and beautiful. That's a perfect description of Stephanie. So when she chose the Old State House Museum at the setting for her bridal portrait session in late September, it was the perfect location for her.

Below are my favorites from her bridal session.


Rupal & Jason: An Indian & Western Celebration. Arkansas Wedding Photographer

Indian Weddings are the BOMB!

I love EVERY SINGLE THING about photographing Indian and Southeast Asian Weddings: The colors, the vibe, the people, the atmosphere, the music.

Rupal & Jason's wedding was no different. Like most Indian Weddings, it's a three day event.

Here's a sneak peek of how Rupal and Jason celebrated with their family and closest friends. The awesome vendor's list is at the end.

Portraits with Mariam and Kareem | Little Rock, Arkansas Wedding Photographer | KES Weddings

Mariam and Kareem reached out to me in late February inquiring about a fresh and new couples portrait session. The couple were recently married in California (where they currently live) but Mariam is from Arkansas. Several members of her family were not able to attend the wedding so they decided to have a post-wedding dinner and reception for close family and friends in March. They wanted a fresh series of intimate couples portraits while they were in town.

Our session was scheduled for mid-March and while we were hoping for some early Spring color, it was still very drab and dreary in Little Rock. I suggested Goodwin Manor as our location so we'd have a stunning home as our backdrop while not having to worry that trees and flowers were not yet blooming.

Our shoot day was as dull and dreary as you can imagine. Low and gloomy clouds were everywhere and fog was starting to set in. As you can see, the colors popped and it didn't matter that is was cloudy, their session and the photos came out perfect.

After I shared the images with Mariam and Kareem, Mariam sent me this e-mail,

"We LOVE the photos!! You have a great eye! We found the couple photos to be very intimate and personal, and the family and guest photos to be candid and genuine. There was some beautiful color contrast as well, and we especially loved the detail photos with the rings. We're thrilled with how they turned out, and I'm finding it difficult not to look at the photos whenever I have free time. Thank you so much!"

Bridals with Natasha | Goodwin Manor | Arkansas Wedding Photographer

My first bridal portrait session with Natasha at Goodwin Manor did not disappoint. I had seen photos from Goodwin from other wedding photographers so I knew it was a gorgeous location. I was very excited to photograph my first portrait session and I am beyond glad it was of Natasha.

Goodwin Manor is a private, gated home located in far west Pulaski County, about 20 minutes outside of downtown Little Rock. Goodwin was also the setting for Natasha's and John's wedding which occurred on April 1st. More on those later.

Below are my favorites from her bridal session.
