Ridge and Kayla are Married!

I can’t tell you enough amazing things about this couple.  Kayla and Ridge are absolutely dynamic.  Their love for the Lord just oozes out of them.  And their love for each other made my job as their wedding photographer very easy.  :) The wedding took place on June 9th at The Barn at Kennedy Farm (one of my favorite venues in Indy)!  It was the perfect summer day – not too hot but the sun was shining warmly down on us with was a nice summer breeze flowing through the trees.  Kayla and Ridge had a sweet time before their first look where they exchanged letters to one another.  I always feel so honored to be a part of these private moments on wedding days.  After the letters, they had their “first look” and we went right into their photos.  They were so perfect to photograph and their bridal party was just as awesome and fun.  Their beautiful outdoor ceremony was centered around Christ and they had an amazing time of worshiping Jesus and prayer.  And after they said their “I-dos,” we partied the night away with all of their family and friends.  I even was able to pull them out of their reception for a few sunset photos which always makes for a happy photographer.  I smiled the whole way home from this wedding.  It’s days like this one that make me realize how lucky I am to have such a wonderful job.  Congrats, Kayla and Ridge!  Thank you for hiring me to capture your beautiful day in photographs.

Jessica and Matt’s Wedding

If I had three words to describe Jessica it would be calm, kind and wonderful.  I met Jessica when she was in middle school and she played volleyball for me at GCA.  She was always so kind to everyone with such a gentle spirit and a smile that would light up a room.  I loved watching her grow from a little middle school girl into a beautiful high school girl (with a killer volleyball serve) and then seeing her head off to my alma mater – Asbury University!  Now Jess is all grown up and married to Matt – the love of her life!  I’m seriously starting to feel so old.  They were married a few weeks ago on June 3rd.  The girls started their day with hair and makeup at Robert’s Salon and Day Spa (which is owned by Jessica’s precious dad, Robert).  After that, we drove down to Martinsville to Jessica’s home church for photos before the ceremony.  I tell ya, it was pretty hot that day but luckily half of the bridal party was from Texas so they said the heat was nothing compared to what they are used to, ha!  The ceremony was perfect and completely focused on Christ.  And we ended the day with an amazing reception which took place in Jessica’s parent’s back yard.  It was an awesome party – filled with sweet moments that made you cry and crazy moments that made you laugh.  I’m so honored every time I get to photograph someone’s wedding day.  Thank you, Jess and Matt, for allowing me to be a part of your big day.  I’m so happy for you and can’t wait to see what your future holds.  Congrats!2017-06-23_00012017-06-23_00022017-06-23_00042017-06-23_00052017-06-23_00072017-06-23_00082017-06-23_00092017-06-23_00102017-06-23_00112017-06-23_00122017-06-23_00132017-06-23_00142017-06-23_00152017-06-23_00162017-06-23_00172017-06-23_00182017-06-23_00212017-06-23_00202017-06-23_00222017-06-23_00232017-06-23_00242017-06-23_00252017-06-23_00262017-06-23_00272017-06-23_00282017-06-23_00292017-06-23_00302017-06-23_00312017-06-23_00322017-06-23_02242017-06-23_00352017-06-23_00362017-06-23_00372017-06-23_00382017-06-23_00392017-06-23_00402017-06-23_00422017-06-23_00432017-06-23_00442017-06-23_00452017-06-23_00462017-06-23_00472017-06-23_00492017-06-23_00502017-06-23_00512017-06-23_00522017-06-23_00532017-06-23_00542017-06-23_00552017-06-23_00562017-06-23_00572017-06-23_00582017-06-23_00592017-06-23_00612017-06-23_00622017-06-23_00632017-06-23_00642017-06-23_00652017-06-23_00662017-06-23_00672017-06-23_00682017-06-23_00702017-06-23_00712017-06-23_00722017-06-23_00752017-06-23_00762017-06-23_00772017-06-23_00782017-06-23_00792017-06-23_00812017-06-23_00822017-06-23_00832017-06-23_00842017-06-23_00852017-06-23_00862017-06-23_00872017-06-23_00882017-06-23_00892017-06-23_00912017-06-23_00922017-06-23_00932017-06-23_00942017-06-23_00952017-06-23_00962017-06-23_00972017-06-23_00982017-06-23_01002017-06-23_01012017-06-23_01022017-06-23_01032017-06-23_01062017-06-23_01072017-06-23_01082017-06-23_01092017-06-23_01102017-06-23_01112017-06-23_01122017-06-23_01132017-06-23_01142017-06-23_01152017-06-23_01162017-06-23_01172017-06-23_02212017-06-23_02222017-06-23_02232017-06-23_01212017-06-23_01222017-06-23_01232017-06-23_01242017-06-23_01262017-06-23_01292017-06-23_01302017-06-23_01312017-06-23_01322017-06-23_01332017-06-23_01342017-06-23_01352017-06-23_01362017-06-23_01372017-06-23_01422017-06-23_01392017-06-23_01402017-06-23_01412017-06-23_01432017-06-23_01442017-06-23_01452017-06-23_01462017-06-23_01472017-06-23_01482017-06-23_01492017-06-23_01502017-06-23_01512017-06-23_01522017-06-23_01532017-06-23_01542017-06-23_01552017-06-23_01562017-06-23_01572017-06-23_01582017-06-23_01592017-06-23_01602017-06-23_01612017-06-23_01622017-06-23_02252017-06-23_01642017-06-23_01662017-06-23_01712017-06-23_01722017-06-23_01732017-06-23_01752017-06-23_01762017-06-23_01772017-06-23_01782017-06-23_01792017-06-23_01802017-06-23_01812017-06-23_01822017-06-23_01832017-06-23_01842017-06-23_01852017-06-23_01862017-06-23_01872017-06-23_01882017-06-23_01892017-06-23_01902017-06-23_01912017-06-23_01922017-06-23_01932017-06-23_01942017-06-23_01952017-06-23_01962017-06-23_01972017-06-23_01982017-06-23_01992017-06-23_02002017-06-23_02012017-06-23_02022017-06-23_02032017-06-23_02042017-06-23_02052017-06-23_02062017-06-23_02072017-06-23_02082017-06-23_02092017-06-23_02102017-06-23_02112017-06-23_02122017-06-23_02132017-06-23_02142017-06-23_02152017-06-23_02162017-06-23_02172017-06-23_02182017-06-23_0219

  

Heather and Aaron

I don’t even know where to start to tell you how much fun this couple is to be around.  I met Heather years ago when I photographed her brother’s wedding and I immediately wanted to be her best friend.  Heather is soooo much fun!  She is full of laughter and smiles and if that isn’t enough to make you love her – add on the fact that her spirit is caring, loving and giving.  She is an encourager and a cheerleader and uses words to describe things in such awesome detail that I swear she needs to become a writer.  She has a voice of an angel and you actually may have heard her sing around the city at various events.  Then there is Aaron.  I met Aaron at the engagement session and immediately knew why Heather fell in love with him.  I loved watching them interact with one another.  The laughter and the jokes were adorable.  They way he looked at her, made me smile and when he held her – it was nothing short of perfection.  And did I mention how gorgeous of a couple they are???  So, yes, I’m pretty darn excited for their October wedding.  It’s going to be a great day.  But for now – lets just enjoy some images from their engagement session.  Congrats, Heather and Aaron!  Thank you for allowing me to capture your love in photographs.  2017-06-15_01592017-06-15_01602017-06-15_01622017-06-15_01632017-06-15_01642017-06-15_01702017-06-15_01712017-06-15_01732017-06-15_01742017-06-15_01752017-06-15_01802017-06-15_01822017-06-15_01832017-06-15_01862017-06-15_01872017-06-15_01892017-06-15_01912017-06-15_01932017-06-15_01952017-06-15_01982017-06-15_02002017-06-15_02012017-06-15_02042017-06-15_02052017-06-15_02062017-06-15_02072017-06-15_02092017-06-15_02102017-06-15_02132017-06-15_02142017-06-15_02152017-06-15_02162017-06-16_00012017-06-15_02202017-06-15_02212017-06-15_02222017-06-15_02232017-06-15_02242017-06-15_02252017-06-15_0226
