Ellen and Juan stole my heart when I met with them at our consultation meeting. They both have a sweet and gentle nature and huge smiles that make you happy just to be around them. And I fell even more in love with this georgous couple on their wedding day. Ellen had become very sick on her wedding weekend and to top it all off – it was freezing cold and cloudy outside. (Like so cold that I was wearing a sweater and coat… in the month of May!) But Ellen never once complained – not once! She smiled and laughed and was such a trooper! And Juan was the one there to make her laugh and keep her warm when the winds came rushing through. Yep, they are an amazing couple and I’m so happy I was able to photograph their beautiful day. They were married at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center on the canal. Everything was so beautiful thanks to their awesome wedding coordinator Jessica (Jessica Dum Wedding Coordinating). And a special thanks to my second shooter, Ariel Eldridge, for helping me get all the fun shots!
I was so happy when my good friend Cami asked if I could take her family’s photos. I love her and her family so very much. Cami’s two boys are full of life, love and personality! They were such a blast to photograph and had me laughing most of the evening. We did their shoot downtown and it seemed fitting to start the session at the War Memorial because Rob (Cami’s husband) serves in the military. I’m so thankful for all that this family has sacrificed for our freedom over the years and I felt so lucky to capture these images for them. Here are some of my favorites from the night!
Andrea and August were married at the beautiful Blanton House in Danville, IN. We all had been watching the weather that morning and unfortunately, it was calling for lots of rain. So we dodged the rain drops and used umbrellas here and there. And they had to move the ceremony into the reception tent to ensure the guests would be dry. But the weather didn’t dampen any of the excitement, love and happiness of this amazing wedding. (And we actually got to enjoy some sun after the ceremony!) Andrea and August didn’t see each other before the ceremony but Andrea asked if she could do a first look with her dad. I love sweet moments like that! And August’s reaction as he saw his bride for the first time, was priceless – he was fighting back tears. Weddings are just so awesome! I love my job! I love getting to capture all the memories and emotions of such an important day. It truly was an honor to be a small part of your wedding, Andrea and August. Thank you! And thank you to my amazing second shooter, Wendy Brown. Couldn’t have done it without you.
