Happy Anniversary!

When my amazing friend, Liv, asked me if I could take photos of her family for her parents’ wedding anniversary – I was like “YES!!!!  COUNT ME IN!”  I have known them for years and they are all so much fun.  I loved the idea of capturing this beautiful family in photos and getting to really focus on the amazing couple who is about to celebrate 30 years together as man and wife.  We met downtown at the War Memorial and it was a beautiful Spring day – just slightly windy… oh, who am I kidding…  the wind was insane but we worked with it and this family rocked it!  And there was a HUGE surprise at the end of this session that only 3 people knew was coming – me, Seth (their son) and his wife, Callie.  They are having a baby and I was able to capture the moment that they told their family.  It’s moments like these that I love being a photographer.  The look on his mom’s face as she read the pregnancy note on the wine bottle is perfection!  Thank you for letting me be a small part of such a huge moment!  :)

The Kresge Family

This is my beautiful friend Ericka and her adorable little family.  Ericka is a part of the Fisher family which I simply adore.  You might remember her brother’s beautiful wedding from last year where her kids were the cutest flower girls and ring bearer ever!!!  Well, a couple weeks ago, I had the amazing privilege of doing a big family session for her parent’s 30th anniversary.  But before everyone else showed up for the big family session, we did a few quick photos of just her little family and here are some of my favorites from my little chunk of time with them.  I can’t get over how cute their kids are and they have another beautiful baby on the way!!!

AJ and Rebecca’s Wedding

This was one of my favorite weddings from 2016!  I fell in love with AJ and Rebecca when I shot their engagement photos down in Bloomington.  And it’s not just because they bought me some of the best cookies I’ve ever had in my life.  (Oh goodness…  I’m drooling just thinking about them.  Mmmmm…. Cookies…)  AJ and Rebecca are such a sweet and fun couple with a love for life and each other.  Their wedding took place downtown at the Indiana State Museum which is such an amazing wedding venue here in the city.  There were so many beautiful moments throughout the day but two of my favorites were with Rebecca and her dad.  Rebecca wanted to do a first look with her dad before she saw AJ.  And oh my…  it was perfect.  There were smiles, tears, hugs and a prayer.  Rebecca’s dad grabbed her hand and they prayed together.  It was amazing.  My second favorite moment was at the reception.  Rebecca and her dad danced together and it started off slow and normal and then turned into a fantastic choreographed dance that had everyone rolling with laughter!  (I guess I should mention that Rebecca and her sister are both extremely talented dancers.)  I want to warn you now that this will be a long blog post with lots of photos because I had a hard time narrowing them down.  And also check out this beautiful video that Kaiser and Hannah DeKam made for them.  Congrats, AJ and Rebecca!!!  I loved being a part of your wedding day.  2017-04-05_00012017-04-05_00022017-04-05_00032017-04-05_00052017-04-05_00072017-04-05_00082017-04-05_00092017-04-05_00122017-04-05_00142017-04-05_00162017-04-05_00172017-04-05_00192017-04-05_00202017-04-05_00232017-04-05_00242017-04-05_00252017-04-05_00262017-04-05_00272017-04-05_02562017-04-05_00312017-04-05_00322017-04-05_00332017-04-05_00342017-04-05_00362017-04-05_00372017-04-05_00382017-04-05_00392017-04-05_00402017-04-05_00412017-04-05_00432017-04-05_00442017-04-05_00452017-04-05_00482017-04-05_00492017-04-05_00502017-04-05_00512017-04-05_00522017-04-05_00532017-04-05_00542017-04-05_00562017-04-05_00582017-04-05_00592017-04-05_00602017-04-05_00612017-04-05_00622017-04-05_00632017-04-05_00642017-04-05_00652017-04-05_00662017-04-05_00672017-04-05_00682017-04-05_00692017-04-05_00702017-04-05_00712017-04-05_00722017-04-05_00732017-04-05_00742017-04-05_00752017-04-05_00762017-04-05_00772017-04-05_00782017-04-05_00792017-04-05_00822017-04-05_00832017-04-05_00852017-04-05_00902017-04-05_00912017-04-05_00922017-04-05_00932017-04-05_00952017-04-05_00962017-04-05_00972017-04-05_00992017-04-05_01002017-04-05_01012017-04-05_01032017-04-05_01052017-04-05_01062017-04-05_01082017-04-05_01092017-04-05_01112017-04-05_01132017-04-05_01142017-04-05_01152017-04-05_01192017-04-05_01212017-04-05_01242017-04-05_01262017-04-05_01272017-04-05_01292017-04-05_01302017-04-05_01322017-04-05_01332017-04-05_01342017-04-05_01352017-04-05_01372017-04-05_01382017-04-05_01392017-04-05_01402017-04-05_01412017-04-05_01422017-04-05_01442017-04-05_01472017-04-05_01482017-04-05_01492017-04-05_01502017-04-05_01512017-04-05_01522017-04-05_01532017-04-05_01542017-04-05_01562017-04-05_01572017-04-05_01582017-04-05_01612017-04-05_01622017-04-05_01632017-04-05_01652017-04-05_01672017-04-05_01682017-04-05_01692017-04-05_01702017-04-05_01712017-04-05_01722017-04-05_01732017-04-05_01742017-04-05_01752017-04-05_01762017-04-05_01772017-04-05_01782017-04-05_01802017-04-05_01812017-04-05_01822017-04-05_01832017-04-05_01842017-04-05_01852017-04-05_01862017-04-05_01872017-04-05_01882017-04-05_01892017-04-05_02552017-04-05_01902017-04-05_01912017-04-05_01922017-04-05_01932017-04-05_01942017-04-05_01952017-04-05_01962017-04-05_01972017-04-05_01982017-04-05_01992017-04-05_02002017-04-05_02012017-04-05_02022017-04-05_02032017-04-05_02042017-04-05_02052017-04-05_02062017-04-05_02072017-04-05_02082017-04-05_02092017-04-05_02102017-04-05_02112017-04-05_02122017-04-05_02132017-04-05_02142017-04-05_02152017-04-05_02162017-04-05_02172017-04-05_02192017-04-05_02222017-04-05_02232017-04-05_02242017-04-05_02262017-04-05_02282017-04-05_02302017-04-05_02332017-04-05_02342017-04-05_02352017-04-05_02362017-04-05_02372017-04-05_02382017-04-05_02392017-04-05_02402017-04-05_02412017-04-05_02422017-04-05_02432017-04-05_02442017-04-05_02452017-04-05_02462017-04-05_02472017-04-05_02482017-04-05_02492017-04-05_02502017-04-05_02512017-04-05_02522017-04-05_02532017-04-05_0254
