Lake Barkley

S Family | Lake Barkley Family Session by Emily Margaret

When your family lives far away from each other, having photos with each member present can be a rare occasion. Earlier this year, Anna contacted me to have a family photo session at Lake Barkley where her family was meeting up for vacation this summer. The weekend we shot these photos was also the same very warm + very humid weekend I assisted this wedding, and as Anna's family is from up north, they definitely got to experience a typical Kentucky summer. 

Large family sessions like these can be challenging, as sometimes not everyone is as excited for family photo time, but Anna's family was so great to work with and I could tell that they really enjoy spending time + having fun together. I think that really shows in these images, don't you?

Cory + Brittany | A summer lake wedding by Emily Margaret

Earlier this year, I was asked by one of the photographers in my Pursuit Paducah group to second shoot/assist her with a few weddings. I had already decided to try to get some wedding experience this year so the timing was perfect! This was the first wedding I shot with Makenzie and she has been so great to work with, showing me the wedding ropes. It's a completely different world than portrait photography!

Cory and Brittany were married on a warm August day at the Barkley Lodge on the lake. The spotty cell reception made coordinating family photos tricky, and a boisterous family reunion + few rumbles of thunder kept us on our toes. Makenzie and I definitely got our workout in for the day, with the many, many stairs at the Lodge.
