Oh Hayley + Corey, my last full wedding of 2021! It was absolutely wonderful and full of so much warmth (but more on that later)…
Hayley is by far one of the sweetest people I’ve become friends with this year. She cares so much and makes sure everyone around her is being taken care of. Helping her MOH with her makeup, helping a family friend with makeup, and even making sure moms dress looked perfect…Hayley you have the biggest heart!
Hayley + Corey both got ready at the marvelous Hotel Covington! Hayley’s getting ready room was surrounded by windows…which is every photographers dream. Their vision was industrial, soft, and romantic…who knew those would make a beautiful combo?! Hayley’s off the shoulder dress paired with her Badgley Mischka heels and stunning jewelry (that she literally got to pick out since Corey works at a jewelry store, such a lucky bride)…all so perfect!
These two live quite a bit away from their wedding day location and I just wanted to give a shout out to Corey for being a hero! Hayley had forgotten her veil back home but Corey saved the day when he had a family member swing by to grab it. However…it wasn’t that easy. He had to call their apartment complex because their doors were locked and sure enough, they got that veil. Hayley, you’ve got yourself a keeper!!
Their wedding party was a new one for me, the smallest one yet! Hayley’s MOH aka best friend and Corey’s brother. Portrait time was somewhat a breeze (besides the 40 degree weather). However, we got lucky! Their wedding day was sandwiched in between two awful rainy and snowy days that weekend, it was so cold but it was rain-free and we were all so thankful for that!
Hayley + Corey,
You two have been so sweet and brought that Kentucky charm straight to my heart! I will be forever grateful for our friendship and memories together, exploring Ohio and Kentucky with you guys was an absolute blast and I hope to do it again with you soon. You guys make a beautiful couple and I am so excited to see what the next chapter in life is for you. And Hayley, thank you for being such a big support of me, you have no idea how much your words mean. I still remember when we first chatted on the phone, instant sparks and I will never forget it. Must be a Hayley thing 😉 Congrats you guys!!

Hayley’s details killed me because they were oh so gorgeous! I also love that she had these pretty drink and glasses handy!
Hayley you are a DOLL!!
I always love when I have some extra time to swing in and do the grooms details myself because they’re just so fun!!!
Fun fact, right before their first look, Hayley’s sleeve SNAPPED but lucky for us, we had an emergency kit handy!
Her sleeves were so gorgeous despite the previous incident! Also, how photogenic is Hayley?! Props to having a mom as a photographer, making my job so easy over here!
I love this intro shot so much because look at the pure joy?! AND she’s doing one of my poses, the lead, love it lol
