Kaylyn and Young's Cincinnati Engagement Session

It was so wonderful meeting Kaylyn and Young in Cincinnati for their engagement session! And after the amazing time we had, and all the beautiful pictures we took, I'm even more excited for their wedding in August! 

See you soon, darlings! 

Niki and Thom | Indianapolis Engagement Session

Meet Niki and Thom!

They're getting married at one of my most favorite venues in Indy, The Ritz Charles Garden Pavilion! I cannot wait for their big day. We had so much fun wandering around Indy and planning all the amazing parts of their wedding. 

See you in September! 

Cassie and Chad's Barn at Kennedy Farm Wedding

Chad and Cassie were married at the ever-so-beautiful Barn at Kennedy Farm. It was sweltering outside, and we all almost melted on more than one occasion, but the heat didn't stop us from enjoying every last second of their day! 

It's no mistake these two met. Chad and Cassie couldn't be more perfectly suited for one another. Their presence, their joy, & their laughter is completely infectious. 

Having known Chad for the entirety of my life, their wedding was special for me to photograph. Not only because I got to be half photographer/half guest, but because I got to witness my friend get his happily-ever-after. I am also so grateful to have gotten to know Cassie over the past year. It felt like we immediately became friends. I loved what her matron-of-honor said in her speech about how no perfect marriage exists, but the perfect marriage for you does. And in Chad and Cassie's case, their marriage couldn't be more perfect for them. 

Cheers to the newlyweds!

Emily and Nate's Omni Wedding | Indianapolis Wedding Photographer

Friends, it's time for Emily and Nate's beautiful Omni wedding! Their wedding had everything; beautiful florals, a show-stopping gown, lots of laughter, dinosaurs (yes! DINOSAURS!), and tons of dancing. They have such wonderful, loving family and friends, all of whom really know how to get down. I'm so excited to share this blog with all of you.

Before I do, you have to read how Nate proposed to Emily and why dinosaurs have sentimentality for them. 

"Our parents decided they wanted to meet and picked Chicago as the place to do it. Both entire families decided to make the trip up on mild April weekend. 


The plans that Saturday were that Nate would show his family around Chicago and Emily would hang out with hers before they head back to Indiana. Emily's mom wanted to tell his parents goodbye since she didn't get to properly the night before at the pizza place where they officially met.  Emily found out that Nate and his family would be at the Field Museum so he suggested we meet them there, since it was on the way out of town. Upon arriving, Emily really needed to go to the bathroom but her family didn't want to pay to go in. So Emily and her brother Alex paid to go into the Field Museum as they waited for Nate's family to arrive.  Emily received a text from her mom a short while later asking her to meet them outside by the large dinosaur. 

Upon her arrival, Emily noticed that Nate's family was also there. (How'd they all know to meet there?) Nate walked up a few minutes later with his sisters then quickly asked to get a picture in front of the Dinosaur with his sisters before they went in. He's sister Marnee handed Emily the camera and while Emily was setting up the shot, a guitar started playing close by. Then Nate stopped Emily and began singing a song...He sang a blend of three songs while their families looked on. (side-note, their first dance will be one of those songs "Stand By Me")  Emily was completely overwhelmed...didn't cry only shook with nerves and the fact that everyone was watching. Once Nate finished singing, he told Emily the reason he had brought her to the Dinosaur was when they first started dating Emily sent Nate a comic of two Dinosaurs that basically showed the small dinosaur always wanting to be close to the bigger one. So from that point on, they called the other their "Dino". So Nate wanted to bring Emily to the biggest Dino he could find. He then got down on one knee and asked Emily to marry him. And the extra best part...he got it all on camera!"

SO CUTE, RIGHT?!

Cheers to the newlyweds!
