MAKAYLA + AUSTIN • SHAKER TOWN ENGAGEMENT SESSION

There are certain locations I’ve shot at that make me feel like I’m stepping back in time. Shaker Village is one of them.

If you’ve never been to (or heard of) Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, I highly recommend that you take an opportunity to go someday. Located in Harrodsburg, Kentucky, it’s almost perfectly centered between Danville and Lexington.

And if you’re a lover of historic places and timeless atmospheres like me, Shaker Village will be right up your alley.


Not only were the vibes from this location wonderful, but so were the vibes from Makayla and Austin!

They greeted me with warm smiles and soft laughter, and while this session was the first time we all officially met in person, it only took a few minutes before it felt like I’d known these two for a long time. It’s really beautiful to have this job and get to work with people like this; people you know will become your friends!!!


In a little less than five months, these two will be tying the knot! Not only am I excited that their big day will be during the peak of fall colors (yay), but they’re actually getting married at My Old Kentucky Home (double yay)!!!

To say that I’m giddy for their approaching wedding date is putting it lightly…I have a feeling it’s going to be magical!!!


I can’t wait to celebrate these two in November! For now, though, let’s celebrate their love by taking a look at some of my favorites from their engagement session. I hope you all enjoy them!!!

Makayla and Austin, I just know your big day is going to be so beautiful!!! I can’t wait to work with you two again, and to see you all become husband and wife. Get excited because it’s not much longer now.

Hopefully Cam isn’t asleep in the car with a migraine next time…hahaha! Never letting him live that one down! ;)


Alrighty friends, until the next post…

Love,

Skyler
