Stacey & Kent: Lexington, KY Engagement Photography

I’ve known Kent for a couple years now. The first bridal show I had a booth at happened to be his first as well. He’s a talented fellow photographer here in Lexington. His company is Ashley Portraits. How could I be more honored and humbled that he’d ask me to photograph his wedding day? Not only is he good at what he does but he’s a genuinely nice guy. It’s no wonder Stacey, sweet and cute, should fit him so well. I’m eager to spend time with them and see them pledge their lives and love to each other during their wedding celebration. September is awfully soon:)

I asked Stacey and Kent to share about how themselves, how they met/ and or how he proposed. This is what Stacey said:

God-centered, love, laughter, sarcasm, fun, spontaneous, unexpected, sweet … these are all words that come to mind when Kent and I try to describe our relationship.  Kent initially had to put forth some effort to get my attention, but did so in his own, outgoing way.  He had noticed me from a distance at church and was curious about me, so he and a mutual friend planned a New Year’s get together for a group of friends.  He made sure I was invited.  😉  He ended up coming over that night to help me work on a puzzle. (What I didn’t know at the time was that he HATES puzzles!)  We proceeded to text much of the next day.  I realized that evening that Culver’s™s had my favorite flavor of the day so I decided to stop by there on my way home that night.  He  informed me that ice cream is always better with good company so he invited himself!  That turned out to be our first date, and  we hit it off quickly.  I found out later that he was afraid I wouldn’t say anything because I was quiet in group settings we had previously been in, but he was pleasantly surprised to learn the opposite was true!  We have been falling in love more every day since!  We are so blessed to have such a great friendship and faith as the basis of our romance!
