Welcome in to the KRP Journal, we are so glad you are here. Grab a full bodied glass of red wine or an ice-cold glass of coffee + caramel and enjoy seeing yourself in our sweet couple's fine photographs.

I absolutely love the morning of a wedding day. While Isaac spends his time with the groom and his men, I get to spend time with the ladies. In most every bridal getting-ready room I enter I smell the new perfume the bride bought just for the day. It’s bright from a few makeup lights […]

I have known of Cassidy for years. Her mom was the teacher’s aid in one of my classrooms in elementary school, we went to the same high school and she danced with one of my best friends from childhood. Finally, we actually got to spend time together, too! While in from their home in Los […]

We have always been familiar with Keith and Tara having grown up in the same small hometown and even attending the same church, but it was not until we were officially their photographers that we got the chance to get to know them more.

Rocklyn and Chris had a beautiful Hawaiian wedding right in Kentucky!

Yesterday, Isaac and I got back from our little four-night vacation in Savannah, Georgia…and I can honestly say it was exactly what my soul needed. It was the perfect trip for us in such a dark time of our lives. While that dark cloud hasn’t suddenly disappeared, it has become something we can begin to […]

May 1, 2019

A while past four AM I sit on the couch listening to the clock tick. I hadn’t slept but maybe a few hours, feeling the weight, but more disbelief, all over again. Looking up on the wall I see a sign whose meaning has changed for me through the years. “For this child I have […]

Heaven Lee, Our Second Angel Baby

April 23, 2019

You know that feeling you get when you finally feel inspired again? Like it’s a new life and the world just seems a little brighter. Receiving these film scans flooded new life into my soul – and I could not be happier. For the past few weeks…okay, months…I have felt disconnected and uninspired by my […]
