Sarah+Nathan

Meet Sarah and Nathan!  We had the best time photographing their engagement at Coxhall Gardens in Carmel, Indiana.  Don’t you just LOVE that yellow dress?!!

Know what else?  They’re getting married…TOMORROW!

Umm…yes.  Loving this.

Sarah, you’re adorable.

I know these two don’t like dressing up, but let me tell you, they make it look GOOD.

At the end of a session, our couples often say that their cheeks hurt from laughing so much.  Well, at the end of THIS session, OUR cheeks hurt from laughing and smiling so much.  These two are so much fun!

Sarah & Nathan – Thank you for your patience.  We are beyond excited to photograph your wedding tomorrow.

Katherine+Rob

Meet Katherine and Rob!  These two lovebirds are getting married this year!  We were able to photograph their engagement at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods in Terre Haute, Indiana, which happens to be where they are getting married as well.

These two were ready to go from the start!  We just LOVE the fact that they could completely be themselves, and allow us to capture their personalities.

The Narnia Bridge.

Just a little magic happenin’.

Ahhh!  You two are perfection.

So glad Katherine chose Saint Mary-of-the-Woods for their session.  It’s also where she went to college.  Isn’t it lovely?

But, YOU, Katherine, are GORGEOUS!

After an outfit change, we headed to the famous Le Fer Hall and grabbed some shots on the staircase.

We originally scheduled their session earlier this year, but had to reschedule because of rain.  Hello there, sunshine!

This photo is a perfect example of why we do what we do.  When we shoot sessions, we want our couples to feel like themselves.  We want them to walk like they normally walk and hold hands just like they do everyday.  We were walking to a new location, and I saw this.  Thirty, forty, or fifty years from now, their grandkids will see how grandma and grandpa walked, not how the photographer posed them.

These guys really made our day!

Katherine is a huge cat fan.  She even brought these shirts to incorporate them into their session.  It was completely ironic that this random dog followed us around for the majority of their session, so they just had to pose with him!

Katherine & Rob – We had a complete blast with both of you.  Totally pumped for your wedding!

August 13, 2015 - 3:00 pm

August 14, 2015 - 12:53 am

Kaylyn+Jeremy

Meet Kaylyn and Jeremy (AKA Remy).  These two had a laid-back, sweet ceremony at Jones Crossing in Camby, Indiana.

Kaylyn!  Ahhh…so pretty.

I love the bow tie, but I just adore that tie on the right.  Don’t you agree?

Such a beauty.

Hello, handsome boys!  Meet Brennan and  Caiden. These guys grabbed a few shots while mom finished up getting ready.  (I’m in love with this shot.)

Then it was time for their first look!  Love the location – Friendship Gardens in Plainfield, Indiana.

Hello again, Brennan and  Caiden!

We just adore first looks.  It gives couples a chance to share that moment of seeing each other in private, calms nerves, and (as an added bonus) saves portrait time after the ceremony.

We came upon this beautiful bridge.  Yes, please!

Sometimes it gets a little boring when mom and dad get all the attention.

“Can I take a picture of mom and dad?”   OF COURSE!

GORGEOUS.

The guys finished up getting ready.

The man cave sign in the back is simply perfect.

On the left – Kaylyn’s niece (also her flower girl) in her wedding dress.  Love the idea.  On the right – Kaylyn’s gift to Jeremy.  She created a book out of all their text messages.  WHAT?  Why didn’t I think of that!?

Meet the whole wedding party.  They were a fantastic group!

Time to get married.

First family photo.

First dance.

Father/daughter & mother/son dance. 

They played the shoe game which is what Nick and I also did at our wedding!  Don’t know what it is?  Click here to watch our wedding shoe game.

They were married on D-Day.  Jeremy decided to incorporate that into the reception.  He was quite the character.

Jeremy also became a little jealous and wanted some of that air action!

Hi there, beautiful bridesmaids.  Love the way your men are looking at you.

I think this photo sums up their personalities.  Congrats you two!

 

Kaylyn & Jeremy – We had such a blast celebrating the day with you two.  Thanks for being YOU.

-Caitlynn & Nick

Jodi+Alex

We are ecstatic that Jodi and Alex are back on our blog again!  This time for their WEDDING in Terre Haute, Indiana!  If you didn’t see their engagement images, you can check them out by clicking here.

Jodi’s bridesmaids created a scrapbook that included pictures of important people in her life along with letters and sweet notes from those individuals. Such a cool idea, ladies!

This is one reason why we love our job – capturing moments like this.  That lady on the right – that’s Jodi’s mom.

Girls getting ready.  Side note: See the numbers on the back of their shirts?  They represent the number of years Jodi has known each bridesmaid.  Love it!

Guys “getting ready.”

Don’t worry.  It didn’t take them long.  Meet Alex!

Go TEAM BETTAG!

Say hello to Alex’s brother.

Jodi, you look absolutely stunning!  P.S. – Jodi’s slip was too long, so how did they solve that problem?  Take a pair of scissors and start cutting!  Wish I would have done that on my wedding day.  Smart ladies.

I just loved her bouquet!

Hello there, handsome groomsmen!

As you can tell from the sky, rain was in the forecast.  The guys beat the shower for their pictures, but the ladies decided to stay indoors.

We’ll make any location work!  If it hadn’t rained, we wouldn’t have gotten THESE shots.  Yes, please.

Jodi and her dad.

Then it was wedding time!  I think his thoughts were, “If I can’t see them, they can’t see me.”

I just can’t get enough of the way they look at each other!

On the left – Alex’s parents.  On the right – Jodi’s parents.  Their ceremony was filled with sweet, personal stories.

This is the moment immediately AFTER the first kiss.  Precious.

Jodi shouts, “We did it!” to the crowd.  Yep, she’s adorable.

Time for a few portraits.

You guys look incredible.

The parents of the bride AND groom made quite the entrance!

Jodi and Alex challenged everyone to hit the dance floor and complete ten push-ups.  Nutrition and fitness is a huge part of their life.  They are distributors for AdvoCare.  If that’s an area in your life you’d like to improve in, get in contact with them by clicking here.  I know they’d love to help you out!

Looks like people still use disposable cameras.  LOVE this lady (Jodi’s grandma I believe) taking a picture of them cutting the cake.

Their first dance was oh, so romantic.

Father-daughter dance.  Mother-son dance.

Most intense garter toss we’ve ever seen!

Jodi and Alex’s family and friends sure do know how to party!  The dance floor was never empty.

Love a groom who sings to his bride.

Jodi and Alex, we can’t begin to thank you and your family for being incredibly kind and gracious to us.  We just love you all!

Teresa Stuckey - Love the photos. My family knows Alex and Jodi. May ask them for a reference. What a beautiful wedding this was!

Amanda+Dakota

Remember that adorable couple who planned on getting married in a castle?  Yep, it happened!  Say hello to Clayshire Castle in Bowling Green, Indiana.

They had signs at every turn down those country roads directing guests to the castle entrance.

Everything took place at Clayshire Castle – breakfast, getting ready, the ceremony, dinner, and the reception.  It is quite an accommodating location.

These ladies were certainly efficient at getting ready.

Meet the good-lookin’ groomsmen!

Nick normally ends up taking the groomsmen photos while I take care of the bridesmaids.  LOVE this image.  Nice work, boys.

All the guys wore a bracelet that represented someone or something special in their life.  Such a good group of guys!

Meanwhile the ladies finished those last minute details.  Amanda’s flower girls saw that her necklace was a little crooked and wanted to fix it for her before she traveled outside for pictures.  What sweethearts!

Hello, beautiful bridesmaids!

Another reason I love working with my husband – I’m able to stay back with the bride and her dad before they walk down the aisle to catch moments like this.  See that bottle of water on the right?  Amanda’s dad owns Clover Signs in Brazil, Indiana, and printed the wrapping for water bottles that guests could take.  The other side of that water bottle has their engagement pictures that we took.  We’ve never seen anything like it!

Right before her dad gives her away.

You’re married!  See that image on the right?  That’s Amanda’s mom right after the ceremony.  Pure joy.

Nick and I were getting the wedding party ready for pictures when I turned around and saw THIS!    YES!!

Hi there again, wedding party!  You guys rocked it!

I’m not sure what ended up happening here, but I wish you could have heard the sound effects with this shot.

You guys look GOOD!

Amanda’s dad gave a speech that was altogether hilarious, emotional, and heartfelt.

This little flower girl didn’t take her eyes off Amanda and Dakota the entire time.

First dance.  Yes, Amanda, you look just like a princess with your prince!

Amanda’s dad.   Dakota’s mom.

The guy on the left was their DJ for the evening.  As you can see, he really got the party going!  If you’re looking for a DJ, we highly recommend him – Dave Howard.

Everyone has that one uncle in their family, right?  Amanda’s uncle rocked the dance floor.

AHHHH!!!  Yes, please!

We took a little stroll to give the bride and groom some alone time for sunset pictures.

Amanda, you look STUNNING.

Sometimes the groom needs to be front and center for a bit.  Isn’t he handsome?!

Dying over this.

Congrats, Amanda and Dakota!  Thank you for asking us to photograph your fairy-tale wedding!
