Aaron and Heather are Married!!!

I met Heather years ago when I photographed her brother’s wedding and I was sooooooooooo incredibly honored when she chose me to photograph her wedding day, too.  And I have to say this is the first time I’ve ever gotten a care package asking me to be someone’s photographer!  I had to take a few photos of it.  Isn’t it so cute? 2017-11-06_03342017-11-06_0341
Seriously, I love this girl.  She is hysterically funny and so caring.  I can’t tell you how many times I heard her asking if she could do anything for OTHER people on HER wedding day.  She was always checking on everyone else – what a servant’s heart!  Heather is also a talented photographer and an INCREDIBLE singer.  Her voice!  Oh… my…. word!  She got behind the mic with the live band at the reception and rocked it out!!!!!!  God has given her a gift – I often like to pretend that I can sing like her (but I can’t).  Want to know another fun fact about Heather?  She was a talented diver in college and actually her diving coach performed the wedding ceremony!  Guys, I could go on and on about her.  And I haven’t even mentioned how stunningly beautiful she is.  And God designed the perfect guy for Heather when He created Aaron.  This handsome fella is so wonderfully perfect for Heather.  He is every bit as fun and sweet as Heather and he loves her with everything he’s got!  I truly fell in love with them as a couple at their engagement session. (It’s one of my personal favorites – check it out here!)  So, needless to say, I was so excited for their wedding day.  They were married on Friday, October 6th at the beautiful Biltwell Event Center in downtown Indy.  It was a fun day with their families, friends and huge bridal party.  I decided that my favorite thing from the entire day was that Heather’s matron of honor was her grandmother!!!!!  It made my heart so happy to see the special love that these two have for each other.  I wanted to give a special shout out and thank you to my amazing second shooter of the day – Katy Davis.  You are awesome, girl!  Thanks for all your help.  Congrats, Heather and Aaron!  Can’t wait to see what God has in store for you guys!  It was an honor to be your photographer.

Brooke and Austin

I love when photo sessions feel like you are just hanging out with good friends and the time is filled with fun conversation and laughter.  That is exactly how this session was even though I haven’t known Brooke and Austin for very long.  In fact, I actually just met them a few months ago over coffee but I feel like I’ve known them for so much longer.  They are both so much fun and so sweet and kind and so easy to photograph because they are so in love!!!  Brooke and Austin wanted less city and more nature for their engagement session so on a beautiful September evening, we drove up to Eagle Creek Park.  Here are some of my favorites from my time with them.  Congrats, guys and I can not wait for your wedding next year!2017-10-25_00422017-10-25_00442017-10-25_00462017-10-25_00472017-10-25_00492017-10-25_00502017-10-25_00512017-10-25_00532017-10-25_00542017-10-25_01262017-10-25_00592017-10-25_00622017-10-25_00642017-10-25_00652017-10-25_00672017-10-25_00682017-10-25_00692017-10-25_00712017-10-25_00722017-10-25_00732017-10-25_00752017-10-25_00772017-10-25_00782017-10-25_00792017-10-25_00802017-10-25_00812017-10-25_00822017-10-25_00832017-10-25_00842017-10-25_00872017-10-25_00892017-10-25_00922017-10-25_00952017-10-25_00962017-10-25_00982017-10-25_00992017-10-25_01022017-10-25_01012017-10-25_01032017-10-25_01052017-10-25_01062017-10-25_01072017-10-25_01082017-10-25_01092017-10-25_01102017-10-25_01122017-10-25_01132017-10-25_01162017-10-25_01142017-10-25_01182017-10-25_01192017-10-25_01202017-10-25_01232017-10-25_0125

  

The Reeds

I look forward to this photoshoot every year.  I remember the first time I got to photograph my good friend Olivia’s family.  It was just a couple days after we found out about our daughter Evie being born and I told Olivia that we were adopting a baby girl.  Sweet Olivia said, “Oh goodness, Cat!  We don’t need to do our session!  You have so much going on.”  To which I replied, “No, I would still love to take your family photos because honestly I need to work to help pay for her adoption!  ha!”  And that first session started a wonderful yearly tradition where I get to photograph this beautiful family.  It’s so crazy to think that far back.  I’ll never forget that first session.  The kids were so little and so wonderful.  We took photos at the art museum in the heat of summer with sweat dripping down our faces but not one person complained.  I fell in love with all of them and have continued to cherish this family ever since.  And just like that first session years ago, this year was pretty darn hot, too.  Even though it was September, it was a random weekend where the temps were close to 90 degrees.  But the Reeds handled the heat like champs.  We went downtown with water bottles in a cooler and smiles on our faces.  It was an amazing evening.  There are so many photos from this session that I love but I tried to narrow it down to a reasonable amount for my blog.  Love you, Reed family!  You all are amazing!2017-10-23_00012017-10-23_00042017-10-23_00062017-10-23_00072017-10-23_00102017-10-23_00112017-10-23_00122017-10-23_00132017-10-23_00162017-10-23_00172017-10-23_00182017-10-23_00192017-10-23_00222017-10-23_00242017-10-23_00262017-10-23_00312017-10-23_00332017-10-23_00342017-10-23_00352017-10-23_00362017-10-23_00372017-10-23_00382017-10-23_00392017-10-23_00402017-10-23_00422017-10-23_00442017-10-23_00452017-10-23_00462017-10-23_00472017-10-23_00502017-10-23_00542017-10-23_00552017-10-23_00562017-10-23_00572017-10-23_00592017-10-23_00732017-10-23_00652017-10-23_00682017-10-23_00692017-10-23_0071
