Oh. My. Word. This shoot was so much fun!!! It was hot. Like… really hot. Like… “Anna’s mom had to continually blot the sweat off of Anna’s face – hot.” But we had a blast despite the heat. Guys, this girl is amazing. She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside and have you seen her??? She is gorgeous!!!! Anna is a senior this year at GCA. And I know I sound so old when I say this, but I remember her as a little middle schooler at summer volleyball camp. She was this cute, little tan girl with bright blonde hair and big brown eyes and a huge smile. Years later, she is now one of our track and cross country stars for our school so it only made sense to start off our session with a few track photos. After that, we hopped into her air conditioned car (thank goodness for air conditioning) and drove to Carmel to finish up her session at Coxhall Gardens. Anna, I wish you all the best for your senior year and am so excited to see what your future holds! I know that God has big plans for you!
These people are literally two of my most favorite people on this planet. My kids absolutely love when they come over to hang out. And Jamie and I always look to forward to our time with them after the kids go to bed when we can actually have a real conversation (those with little kids know what I’m talking about, right?). Sometimes I’ll look at the clock thinking we’ve been talking with them for just 20 minutes but in reality it’s been 2 hours – it just flies by! For a while Evie, my youngest, thought Mark and Bre were brother and sister and would often ask Bre where her brother was! ha! Luckily now, Evie understands that Mark and Bre are in love and getting married – well, to be honest, she saw a photo of them kissing when I was editing and she thought that I was working on their wedding photos. I asked her why she thought that and she said “because only married people kiss.” Hmmm… wonder how long I can keep her believing that one! Maybe until she is 18? But enough about Evie. Mark and Bre are getting married next year at the beautiful Biltwell venue in downtown Indy. I can only imagine how gorgeous that day is going to be – I’ll be fighting back tears all day. For their engagement session, we wanted a more moody look – so we went to the amazing Neidhammer and a local conservatory. These two don’t take a bad photo and I did my best to just pull out a few to blog but let’s be honest – we all know that I can’t just have a few. Congrats, Mark and Bre! We love you and are so excited for your engagement and what God has in store for you guys as a couple. You will do amazing things for His kingdom!
Morgan and Caleb were married at the beautiful Blanton House in Danville, Indiana this past July. It was awesome! Everything was so simplistically beautiful. There were so many perfect moments from the day. Like when Morgan put on her wedding dress and topped it off with her gorgeous flower crown – all of us in the room were smiling and cheering and in sort of an awe at how stunningly perfect she looked. Or like when she and Caleb had their first look and Caleb would hug her and then look at her with amazement and then tightly hug her again (because did I mention she looked stunning?) Or maybe it was when they read their personally written vows and their guests’ eyes were glistening with happy tears. The entire day was amazing but my personal favorite moment was when they asked to take communion with the pastor before the ceremony. The pastor improvised and got a piece of corn bread and a cup of sweet tea. It was awesome. And Jesus was honored. It was a wonderful wedding and I’m so excited to share some of the images. Congrats to Morgan and Caleb! Thank you so much for allowing me to be a little part of your big day!
