Xiaomin & Martin: Romantic Old Louisville Engagement Session

October 24, 2019

This post is for those of you who want to SMILE until your cheeks hurt, because the love and tenderness that Xiaomin and Marty have for each other just RADIATES through their engagement photos!!! Not to mention we caught ALL the sun flare!


I met Xiaomin a few years ago through a mutual friend, and since then on social media we both have bonded over our love for cats and traveling! She and Marty met while taking a class together at UofL, and since then have enjoyed traveling the world together – they will have a wedding in China, where Xiaomin is from!


The engagement photos


These two said they would need some help posing, but UMMM when you see how naturally they fit together, you will see that they had it in them all along šŸ™‚


Xiaomin and Marty both love the old churches of Louisville, so we went over to the West End Baptist Church near Central Park and let me tell you the lighting was PERFECT! The sun beamed through the historic arches and this might actually be my new favorite spot for photos!


Afterwards, we took a stroll through Central Park and stopped by the visitor center, which is also one of my favorite buildings because of the Spanish colonial style and the large, tinted glass windows, and we ended at St. James Court, which you may recognize from a past shoot šŸ˜‰

I can’t get enough of this sweet couple!!!


These two were SO adorable, dancing, spinning, embracing, giving each other gentle kisses, and laughing together throughout their session. I put on some music to set the mood and almost started crying because of how sweet Marty is with Xiaomin <3 


It totally melts my heart to see couples that are in love and ready to start their lives together, and the smiles and loving looks you will see in these photos are 100% NOT POSED, and completely organic, raw emotion from two people who love each other.
