Capturing Stories

Hi! My name is Adam and I'm a documentary wedding photographer and videographer in the Louisville, Kentucky area. Capturing genuine love, happiness, and awkward moments is my specialty. I give you space to be yourselves and documenting those in-between moments and let your personality of a couple shine through.

I’m a photographer and a storyteller. Let's capture your story.

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 videos 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 and relaxed experience. I'm here 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.

    Perfect - simply perfect!

    Where to start, where to start…

    There are just so many good things I can say. Working with Adam was so refreshing, effortless, and fun! I’ll break down my review in a couple different areas.

    1. Professional, but never stiff – Adam is a joy to work with. He has perfected the balance between professional but still lighthearted and fun. It’s all about the photos and the process, but yes, we will gab about Dungeons & Dragons in between photos. I felt the ease and comfort of working with a close friend, but the confidence and assurance of working with a seasoned professional. As someone who can be awkward in photos, this made all the difference, and I was able to relax and enjoy the wedding and know that I’m going to get good photos.

    2. Personable – Again, I felt like I was working with a friend, but never in a way that I felt I wasn’t getting professional services. We can laugh, joke, and then discuss timelines and money in the same breath without issue. He took the time to get to know me and my wife and really cater our engagement session to represent us. We did a Dungeons & Dragons theme and it was so fun, especially because he totally understands and plays the game as well so it was great to geek out about it and get some fantastic photos. But you can easily tell he was genuinely interested in us and making this a perfect experience for us, not putting us into a mold that worked best for him.

    3. Technical Ability – the photos really speak for themselves and his technical ability. His use of lighting, angles, focus, and catching those candid moments is amazing. You can just tell that he knows his way around his equipment and had created a seamless process for capturing an event. It really was seamless – while I was catching up with friends at the wedding, he’s setting up a photo station for those staged, family photos. He ushered all us in, got us set up, knocked out the photos, and then tore everything down and was back to the ceremony before I even realized I wanted him to get a photo of something else. I had the thought of “Oh, I want to get this” and boom, he’s already there. He had great ideas for photos, too, which was super helpful as I’m not really creative that way. As someone who needs a bit more direction in how to pose and facial expressions, Adam has a gentle, polite manner. But the fact that he took the time to say, “Hey, can you lift your chin a little?” or “Can you relax your shoulders just a tad?” was comforting because it shows he’s looking at the whole picture and thinking about how the client will feel about how they look in the picture. The little things that maybe seem “picky” or not “that important” can make all the difference, and he makes sure that the person in the photo is going to be their most flattering selves.


    So, yeah, 5/5 stars, thumbs up, would 100% recommend. Prices are fair and payment systems worked really well for us. I never felt like I would be cheated out of anything. I definitely got my money’s worth and then some. Turn-around time for photos was spot-on. I got married on 2/28/2021, and got a sneak-peek a few days later with polished, sharp, amazing photos.

    Shutter Photo & Film's reply:

    I can’t even say enough to thank you all for such an awesome review! It sincerely means SO much that you took the time to write this review for me and be so thorough as well as send it across all of the internet! I know we had a lot of things change up with the current climate but everything ended up being so beautiful. I’m extremely thankful to have been able to work with you all and get to know you.
