Louisville Kentucky Sweetheart Session | Erica + Eric

Erica + Eric’s Sweetheart Session in Louisville, Kentucky | Kentucky Engagement Photographer Rebecca Beatty


I try to keep these post about my amazing couples. How I met them, what they’re like, how they love one another, etc.

But this post may be a tad bit different.

You see, I met Erica + Eric online through a Facebook wedding group and they were both looking for a wedding photographer that could meet the expectations they had. One thing they wanted was someone who could shoot a big darker and more moody. As if they were almost working on Tim Burton film.

The day they posted that, I kind of shrugged my shoulders and SCROLLED PASSED IT! I was in a funk where I thought they weren’t going to book me. My style was starting to reach more bright and vibrant and they were wanting dark, and moody.

But then after yelling at myself for being an idiot and letting my funk control me, I left a comment and hoped for the best.

Later that night I talked to Erica via email and after a few back and forth messages, one phone call, they said we’re going to go through the list, and make a final decision in the next few days.

Well, as you can see by this blog post, the decision was made and I was going to be a part of their big day!

But as I mentioned, this post is a little different than normal. You see, we met in Louisville to shoot their sweetheart session just three days before their wedding day and before I even snapped the first picture, I stepped in a hole and sprained my right ankle. If the pop sound wasn’t the clear sign that I messed my ankle up, the fact that I couldn’t walk on it was.

But I didn’t want them to know that I hurt myself three days before their wedding! But let’s be honest they knew lol. They heard the pop too.

But I didn’t want to reschedule, not when the big day was so close. So I bit my tongue, gritted my teeth and limped around downtown Louisville as I capture their love.

A stupid thing to do, is what my doctor told me considering that a sprain can be a lot worse than a break, but hey when you’re passionate about something, you’re not going to just sit down and quit.

Erica + Eric picked me because of my personality, but also because of my passion and dedication for what I do. And no matter the pain, I’m going to make sure I put my best foot forward.
