Hi, I'm Adam.
Documentary Wedding Photographer
I document candid moments full of emotion. I’m there with you celebrating, laughing, and tearing up. Count me as family and not a stranger behind a camera.
Let's Capture Your Story!
Hi, I'm Adam Mescan, an award-winning wedding photographer based in Louisville, Kentucky. Capturing genuine love, happiness, and awkward moments is my specialty. I document candid moments full of emotion. I’m there with you celebrating, laughing, and tearing up. Count me as family and not a stranger behind a camera.
Images and video I have crafted for you will last for years to come. My photography style is documentary based, with photojournalistic tendencies that are beautiful and genuine.
I can be goofy to deliver a fun a relaxed experience. I'm there to help support you on your big day and can provide additional materials with my professional expertise through your planning process.
I graduated from the University of Louisville with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. With seven years of experience photographing weddings I started Shutter Photo & Film in 2017. Couples have entrusted me over the past three years to capture their love story. I can't wait to capture yours.
Why I Take Photos
I love photography because it allows me to see things from a different perspective. Photography enables me to capture your authentic self, something you don't really see when gathered around for group selfies and "say cheese" moments. The camera lets me show off your personality and quirks, your emotions as you truly experienced them.
But my favorite thing is making memories. I create memories from a specific time and place and hold on to them with detail. Photographs spark your memory and brings your experience back to life.
Documenting your wedding is a great honor to be a part of one of your life's greatest moments and preserve that memory. Telling your story through photography lays the foundation for your new family, with images that will be cherished forever. These photographs, capturing the celebrations of your love, are a family heirloom.
How I Create Stories
This is your day I'm just here to capture it. Supporting whatever you need.
I give you space to be yourselves and documenting those in-between moments and let your personality of a couple shine through. I gently guide you through the process of posing to create natural photographs.
I work in the background to capture genuine moments to avoid photos that come across as stiff or staged. I'm goofy to help you and your guests relax bringing out their genuine selves.
- In my spare time I play the drums.
- I love shooting film when I'm not editing.
- I do both of those things faster after a cup of coffee (or two)!
- I have a contagious laugh.
- I also speak sarcasm to the fullest extent of the law.
- Coming up with names is not a specialty of mine. My character's name in D&D is Bob Bobinson.
- I eat gluten-free because my body feels better for doing so.
- I'm earth and health conscious.
- I went to a bourbon distillery and came home with vodka.
- Old-school Blink-182 is my favorite band.
