Mary+John

Meet Mary and John!  They recently were married in Greencastle, Indiana, during a short and sweet courthouse ceremony.

Even for a short ceremony, some thought it was tough to wait!

Mary’s father passed away November of 2012 from cancer.  She included him in the ceremony in a special way.

The judge arrived, and it was getting married time!

A small wedding with close family and friends.

I asked this little guy what he thought about his mom getting married.      His response.

Mary and John’s family headed back home to get ready for a cookout celebration while I shot a few images of the newlyweds.
Who says you can’t get good images in a courthouse?!

 

We took a hop across the street for a few more!   Oh, so happy!

Yep.  You two are adorable!

Love, love, love the way they look at each other!

Back to their house for a gathering of family and friends to wish them well!

We enjoyed every moment of your sweet, sweet day!  Thank you for letting us be a part of it.

Lacey+Ryan

Meet Lacey and Ryan!   Let me tell you, they’re an engaged couple who wanted to have a FUN engagement session, and Nick & I are a photography team who LOVE to have fun when we photograph people.  Yep.  A match made in heaven.

Starting things off with Ryan’s ’85 Camaro.  It’s kinda a big deal.  Nick and Ryan had a nice chat about cars that day.

1.  I just love the way Ryan is looking at Lacey.  2.  You can’t even see Lacey’s face, BUT…BUT you can see her love for Ryan in the image below.

 Just doing some elderly people aerobics.  (Inside joke between us and Ryan!)

Want to know why I love this image so much?  It’s that moment right before a kiss.  For those of you who watch How I Met Your Mother, remember that episode where Ted meets Victoria?  He wants to kiss her, but she denies him and says, “The best part of any first kiss is the lead-up to it.  The moment right before the lips touch.”  In case you want to view the clip, click here.  Starts at 5:45.

Next, we were able to get some images in a vineyard, specifically the Black Dog Vineyard in Terre Haute, Indiana.  A big thanks to Kevin who let us use his land.  He was a super nice guy and left us a note!  He also had an incredibly wacky tree next to the vineyard, so we had some fun with it.  Ha!

Can anyone tell me when they are getting married!?!



Gah!  Look at those eyes!

Off to another location!  “May we use your driveway?”  They said yes!  By the way, what a cool driveway to have, right?  The husband who owns the driveway told me ALL about the cows he got from Texas.  He said if we keep following the driveway past their house, we can see the cows and get pictures with them.  We didn’t have time for that 🙂 , but we appreciated his willingness!  By the way, Lacey, you’re so pretty.

 

One of my favorites.

Thanks for letting us hang out with you two and being way fun!  Can’t wait for the wedding!

Abby & Ryan

Meet Abby and Ryan!  They are getting married in October.  Congrats, guys!  After they get married I think they have a future in modeling.  You’ll agree with me after you take a look below!  Starting off with a favorite.

Meet Raina!  Like I mentioned on our Facebook page, Raina is no third wheel.

Raina, I do believe you can go into modeling with them!

Not too long after this photo, Raina decided it was time to jump into the pond.

Back to our happy couple!

Seriously guys!?  We just adore you two!

We didn’t have to go far to take these pictures.  All of these images were taken in Ryan’s backyard.  Nick and I could have spent all day there.  They made it super easy for us.

We found this really cool shed and Abby & Ryan would pop up and create some pretty awesome faces.  I would shout 1…2…3…pop up or 1…2…3..pop up and look at each other!  BUT, one time I forgot to say pop up and just said look at each other.  Sooo, they stayed below and made faces at each other.  Ha!  EXCELLENT direction followers – even when I mess up!

 One more on Ryan’s land.  Love it.

Outfit and location change!

Yep.  I’d say they love each other.

Abby, you are gorgeous!  Just gorgeous.

Calling all modeling agencies!  We have the couple for you!  Good golly.  Look how perfect they are.

Ending with another favorite.

We had way too much fun with you guys!  Thanks for letting us spend the day with you.

Congratulations to Ren’ee and Blake!
April 4, 2014

Ren’ee and her bridesmaids got ready inside Grandma’s house.  It was the perfect place!

Check out those gorgeous shoes.  Seriously, Ren’ee, I don’t know how you kept those shoes on as long as you did!  You are a rock star.

Ren’ee and her momma.  Spending at little quiet time before the wedding begins.

Meet Blake – the groom!

Love this moment right before Dad walks her down the aisle.

Guess who had the privilege to marry them?!  That’s right – Grandpa!  How cool is that!? 

Can you tell that this was a way fun wedding party?!We headed outside for a few images of just the two of them.  I think the “we just got married” feeling is jumping off of this image!

First dance.  Surrounded by family and friends and still completely in their own world.  

We were incredibly happy to spend the day with both of you!
