Great Gatsby themed 1920s Gala

The Great Gatsby themed 1920s Gala during The Reset Conference was definitely one of the BEST parts of the whole conference. This conference is such an intimate and joy filled atmosphere – it’s like no other conference for creatives I’ve ever been to! The speakers are always so awesome about being real & sharing their stories (even when it isn’t pretty) and I’ve grown to expect that each year and I truly appreciate it! The hostesses of the conference Rebekah Albaugh and Kellie Penn had a change of venues – which gave us the opportunity to partake in some 1920s themed fun! They planned a 1920s gala for the speakers & attendees in the lower level of the historic Seelbach Hilton Hotel in downtown Louisville, KY.

I’m jumping out of a jam packed weekend full of fun and learning at The Reset Conference for photographers and I’m so excited to share a few photos from the Great Gatsby themed 1920s Gala! Let me introduce to you Kayla and Adam!!! Kayla is a fellow photographer that attended the event and she is such a sweet gal! I had so much fun getting to know her this weekend! When she asked me to photographer her and Adam – I melted! Getting to shoot another photographer in a historical hotel like Seelbach was like a dream come true! We had a blast!!!

Engagement Session on Their Family Farm

Quintine & Grant’s engagement session on their family farm was SO much fun! We had so many personal aspects to incorporate, too! Their barn, old truck, cornfields, Grant’s welding gear, and cowboy boots to name a few fun things we incorporated! These two are the sweetest, most down to earth folks ever! I’m SO excited for their wedding this summer!

This is Grant’s welding mask… fun fact, it’s called a PANCAKE! (Appropriately named because of its round shape and literally flat as a pancake!) We had some fun using it as a prop for a ring shot & also used it for some snuggly photos of the two of them! As a wedding and engagement photographer – I typically steer away from using props.. because a lot of times they aren’t meaningful props, however, when a client wants to use something so personal and sentimental for a session – you bet your booty I’m all over it!!! It made their engagement session on their family farm even more meaningful!

As a country raised girl myself – I can’t deny that I love dresses and boots for an engagement session outfit! Quintine was perfectly put together for her session and I love her style!
