logan and amanda say i do

Logan and Amanda... AMAZING couple, BEAUTIFUL wedding, FUN day, WONDERFUL people!!! Although it started of a little cold, I dare to say that Logan and Amanda snagged the last fall day full of beautiful leaves and colors! By the time the ceremony ended, the sky was full of sunshine and we enjoyed walking around the campus at Butler (where Logan graduated) taking photos! Logan and Amanda were so sweet, so caring, and welcomed us into their lives like we'd been long-time friends! We loved everything about this couple and this wedding! We loved them and their families, we loved the tribute to the military, we loved the hilarious fraternity traditions, and the day went by so fast we were sad to pack up at the end of the night! Logan and Amanda, thank you so much for sharing your wedding day with us!!! Congratulations!!!

barr family

I received a call from Marie, that her son, Sean, won a gift certificate at a silent auction and wanted to try to set up a photo shoot of their family before their other son, Stephen, a Marine, went to Afghanistan. I was honored that 1. Sean bid on our certificate, and 2. to be given the chance to photograph this amazing family at such a unique time in their lives! Stephen and Jen were actually married the day before our session but they luckily weren't too "photoed out" so I was able to get some great shots of the two of them. I really enjoyed spending time with the whole family! Thank you all so much for spending some time with me! We are extremely thankful and humbled by Stephen's bravery and wish him safe travels.

julie and ian are engaged

I was so excited when Julie called and asked me about photographing her wedding. She is very sweet and beautiful and just happens to be marrying one of my fraternity brothers from Purdue. I haven't seen Ian since I left Purdue so it has been great to catch up with him and all he's doing. I made them meet me out in the rain last week for their engagement session. It rained a little more than I was expecting, but luckily, it stopped enough for us to sneak out from the covered bridge to capture some of the fall colors! It was great hanging out with you guys! Enjoy the sneak peek!

madelyn is 1 year old

Little Madelyn is one! We've known her since she was 1 week old and it is amazing to look back at those images at how small she was. She has turned out to be a beautiful little girl and so sweet! Point the camera at her and she gives you some great poses. We have loved watching her grow over the last year! Thank you so much for the opportunity! Here is a sneak peek from the session...

katie and ellie

Katie and Ellie's session was cut a little short last month due to some tired little ladies so we thought we'd try for just a couple more shots on another day. I'm so happy we did! They were so cute and have already gotten so much bigger since I saw them last! Amy and Ben, enjoy the sneak peek! Can't wait to show you the rest!

tim and maggie say i do

Tim and Maggie were married on the beautiful grounds of the IMA & we were so honored to share in their day! Before Maggie went out to meet Tim for the first time, she and her girls were talking about how you always remember one thing about someone's wedding, and that what everyone would remember about theirs is how cold it was. Well, it was a little chilly, but I disagree that the cold weather in itself is what people will remember. My bet is on the blankets that were passed to guests as they entered or the hot coco that was served during the ceremony... the memorable blessing Maggie's brother made when he married them... or the smile on her dad's face when he announced them as husband and wife for the first time... the special touches Maggie's mom added through the entire day... Tim's dad's moving toast that left not a dry eye in the place... the laughter coming out of the photo booth... or most of all, the way that Tim and Maggie looked at each other during their first dance. We shared many beautiful memories on this day, and we are so thankful we were a part of it! Tim and Maggie, thank you so much for inviting us to share in your wedding day! Enjoy your sneak peek!!!
