Ashley is a California girl (literally from California) and Brad is a Kentucky naive. They’ll be tying the knot out west next year but opted to do engagement photos here in Kentucky!
I thought it was incredibly sweet when Ashley (again, California girl) inquired with me and said she wanted to include a “rustic” location during their session for Brad, who grew up on a farm. I know when two people get married they’re creating a new life together; but I love when a person is accepting and loving of the life that made the person they fell in love with and happy to acknowledge it and even include it.
Beckley Creek Park (A part of The Parklands of Floyd’s Fork) requires a photography permit which you can apply for HERE.
Red Orchard Park is open to the public and does not require a photography permit but it’s always a good idea to touch base the Shelby County Parks Dept to see if any events are happening that day.
