Light is important. The big misconception when it comes to planning your wedding is that you do not need to think about how the lighting will affect your photos. I know you have probably seen photos that you love of other peoples weddings.
Kendra and Matthew's wedding was one that made me cry. It was unique and honest and just so them. Kendra's sister did the message during the ceremony and killed it. They wrote their own vows that were so poetic I want to hang them in my house. THEY served communion to their guests. It was just so beautiful. Their love was evident but also their deep deep respect for each other. I was so honored to be there to capture it all.
Carli, Doug and I headed to downtown Noblesville for their engagement session. It started to rain as the session started and we decided to just go for it. Carli and Doug are so laid back they didn't let the rain phase them for a second. They are getting married in August in the mountains in Colorado and I just can't wait for it.
Okay so anyone who starts their engagement session asking if we can get margs at the end is instantly my best friend. I had so much fun taking Olivia and Neil's engagement photos around downtown Zionsville. They are so much fun and I love that they wanted to incorporate their favorite things into their session.
Jon and Michelle are some of our dearest friends and I was honored to take their maternity photos. I told Michelle that whenever I take photos of them, they are some of my favorite photos I take. It's so much fun to just hang out and take photos with people that you love. I am so excited to meet baby boy so soon!
Dena emailed me and asked me to photograph her intimate wedding at Traders Point Creamery. I was automatically in. After meeting Dena I was even more excited for her wedding day to arrive. There were about 20 people in attendance, all family, as Dena and Nick said their vows. It was personal, cozy, and perfect. It was a no fluff and to the point ceremony. Their wedding felt like a family dinner. Everyone around close by smiling as they shared their first kiss. I was beyond honored to have been one of the people in attendance that day.
I am obsessed with my clients. Sean and Casie are so fun and honestly, we are going to be best friends by the end of all of this. Baby photos, maternity photos, and wedding photos all within the next year or so. I am so thankful that people trust me to go along with them through the years and capture their precious moments. Sorry that was hella cheesy but I mean it.
Shelia and Nick contacted me to take maternity and newborn photos for them. It was such a blast shooting around a couple different parks in Carmel. They are just so sweet. Isn't Sheila the cutest mom-to-be?! She is due any day now and I am dying to go over and take photos of their new lil baby.
I was so excited to shoot this wedding. Not only was it the most perfect weather day we had had all year, I am just obsessed with Lauren and Andrew. I shot their engagement photos and we met a couple times to go over all things wedding. They are amazing and so was their wedding. The team at Mustard Seed Gardens went above and beyond and I can't say enough good things about them. I was so honored to be there and capture this special day.
Spoiler, I LOVE HoneyBook. It has totally changed how I run my small business. It is the best online business management software that I have found. I use HoneyBook every single day and it helps me stay organized and efficient. I have streamlined my business by using HoneyBook.
Hannah and Brock were a dream to photograph. We went to Holcomb Gardens and basically just hung out for an hour while I took photos of them. They danced and we all laughed. Their wedding is in June and I just can't wait. They are the most chill couple and I had the best time taking their photos.
I've been watching some of my friends become moms. I know being a mom is hard and tiring but so worth it. Something I have been thinking about is how my mom friends don't get to see themselves as moms from an outside perspective. They take photos of their babies throughout the day but how many photos are they actually in? ⠀
I have had this idea of shooting photos in the back of Luke's car for a really long time. I could picture it in my brain. Well I was hanging out with other photographer friends, Kelsey and Kaitlyn, and telling them about this and we just decided to make it happen and set up a styled shoot. I am so thankful for such amazing friends that believe in me and cheer me on. It was so much fun shooting alongside them. Plus Lexi and Jeff are just the cutest.
I have known Gabby since she was a little girl. Our parents have been friends for years and years. I was so honored to be asked to take her senior photos. Gabby is stunning, obviously. Her eyes! She was so much fun to photograph.
This past winter Gabby came and did an internship with me to learn more about photography. It was so much fun getting to hang out with her and get to know her better. She is so creative and has an amazing eye for photography.
