Bryan flew in from NYC to visit Jena this past week. On the agenda was a surprise photo shoot for the two of them! Bryan is a firefighter/model in NYC and Jena wanted to give him a few new shots and just have a good time. They were so much fun to be around!

steve and krystal are engaged 2

My brother Steve and his fiancee Krystal are getting married in a few short weeks! You may remember them from a post we did this past winter with the clever name "steve and krystal are engaged." They wanted a few spring photos this time so we took them out to the IMA on Thursday. Their wedding is going to be in Traverse City, Michigan. We've never been and can't wait!! Our family reunion is happening over the same weekend so stay tuned for some fun photos from the weekend!

Here are a few shots from the latest engagement shoot.

michael and miranda say i do

Michael and Miranda were married yesterday on the beautiful grounds of the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA). All week it called for rain, yet it turned out to be the most beautiful day of the year! They are a very sweet and genuine couple and we were honored to be a part of their day. I do believe that this couple had more guests that came in from far away than any other wedding we've done. Many, many people flew in from oversees to join in their celebration. It was really touching. They had a GORGEOUS outdoor ceremony followed by a rockin' reception inside the IMA. The love was real, the celebration fun, the toasts so touching (I could barely see through my viewfinder because my eyes were welling up), and the evening was just perfect. Michael and Miranda, thank you so much for inviting us to share in your day. Enjoy this sneak peek of your images!

reagan is 3.5 months old

You may remember Reagan from her newborn shoot... well, she was back in our studio this week for her 3.5 month photo session! She is A DOLL!!!! Of course, I don't have to tell you that because you can see it in the photos. She has changed SO MUCH since she was born! It's amazing. She was so sweet and se well-behaved that Dan walked into my office after the photo shoot and said "That went too well. It makes me nervous! They NEVER go that smooth!" But, as you can just went that well because she is PERFECT! She has the cutest giggle, the widest smile, and we already can't wait to see her again! Josh, Cara, and Reagan, thanks for coming in! We'll see you again when she turns six months!!!

wes and gillian are engaged

Wes and Gillian are engaged! I grew up with Wes, and we ran into each other randomly at a wedding we were shooting in South Bend last year. It's amazing how things work out--- now he is engaged and we have been given the honor of photographing him and his beautiful bride, Gillian, at their wedding in September. They are such a sweet couple! We can't wait for the wedding!!! They squeezed an engagement shoot into their crazy busy schedules, and Dan photographed them this week in Indy. Wes and Gillian....thank you for sharing your love and excitement with us! We are so happy for you and so glad to be a part of your excitement!!!

justin, kristen, and jackson

Little Baby Jackson.....isn't he ADORABLE?! He was born on May 3 and we had the honor of doing his photos when he was just 10 days old. We took a lot of photos but for some reason we were really feeling like posting black and whites in the blog tonight. :) Kristen is a friend of a good friend of mine, so I already felt like I knew her before the session and it made it tons of fun to share in their excitement for this new little man in their lives. Justin and Kristen, thank you for sharing your beautiful home, your sweet baby Jackson, and your joy with us!
