West Paducah Sunflower Engagement Session | Trisha + Cody by Emily Margaret


Trisha and Cody were very trusting of me during their engagement session, meeting me out in a field to traipse around in the tall grass and flowers. Thankfully, these two are a very adventurous couple and enjoy going on new adventures together. As part of their questionnaire, Trisha mentioned that they love to travel-

“One time, we got into the car and just drove around, and each time there were turns in the road, we would flip a coin to see which way to take.”

Cody’s son also joined us for a few photos, between spurts of running around through the sunflowers.


“My favorite thing about Cody is his passion and dedication to me and his son. He does everything he can to make sure we are both happy… he is the most caring man I have ever met.”

“The way she can make my worst of days become the best of days just by seeing her. I find comfort in her eyes every single day. Her relationship with my son makes my heart melt. I can go on and on but to sum it up my favorite thing about her is HER.”

Kaylan & David | Downtown Paducah Riverfront Couples Portraits by Emily Margaret


Kaylan and I hadn't actually ever met in person until our shoot together. We were both part of a local creatives group and connected over instagram, but somehow managed to miss meeting! She and her husband, David, are practically professional nuzzlers, as you can see, and were so fun to photograph in Downtown Paducah.

Also can I just geek out that we're finally getting some of that glowy fall light around here in Kentucky?  Yes, there's definitely a difference between summer and fall light. #nerdalert 


Lily Jade Brand Shoot | Paducah KY by Emily Margaret

Last summer I had the pleasure of doing some work for Lily Jade, a company that makes designer diaper bags that don't look like diaper bags. While I don't have children, I carry mine around all the time cause it's quite large and nicely holds my tablet, planner, notebooks, wallet, and water bottle with room to spare. Special thanks to my stylish friend Kathryn for modeling, because it was 99 degrees out the day we did this shoot!
