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 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.

We hired Adam Mescan and his Shutter Photography & Film LLC to be our wedding photographer because we liked his photojournalism style and his packages best fit our needs and budget. Part of our package included an engagement shoot, which is where we first met Adam in person. He’s been outstanding to work with so far! He’s a great communicator and very responsive via e-mail, and he did his research about venues before we met for our engagement shoot. He has a great eye for lighting and poses and helped put my fiancé and I at ease and feeling comfortable interacting naturally in front of the camera. As a result, our engagement photos really showcase our personality and look really wonderful because they show our natural smiles, laughter and reactions. We just got our engagement photos back, and they’re beautiful! His editing is great and he provided us both web ready and print ready digital files for our use.Sent on 12/07/2019
I’m so excited that Adam will be photographing our wedding! I have every confidence that he and his second shooter will do an amazing job capturing the big and little, intimate moments and also our personalities, and that they will be fun to have at the wedding, working and interacting with our guests. I highly recommend Adam and Shutter Photography & Film! Fantastic skills and customer service!

Absolutely a joy to work with!
Adam was so incredible to work with! After seeing his portfolio we were so impressed with his style and instantly noticed his framing ability. He gave us the exact aesthetic we wanted and we honestly didn't even notice he was taking photos during the ceremony or reception. He also made our entire wedding party feel comfortable which was huge for us! We definitely found the perfect photographer and gained an awesome friend.Sent on 05/18/2020
Shutter Photo & Film's reply:Thank you so much Gabby! You and Joe have been so kind and welcoming from the start. You all and your wedding party were a blast to work with and document! I'm excited to get to some hiking and other adventures with you all!
