Damaria

Meet Damaria! How completely adorable is she!? 

You should have seen how excited she was when her mom popped around the corner with an ice cream cone! Surprise! Thanks for being so spontaneous, Damaria! (Shout-out to Scoops in Greencastle for creating some yummy ice cream.)

I just want to squeeze you! 

She’s graduating from Heritage Christian High School in Indianapolis, Indiana. 

Her smile! That hair! The outfit! Gah! 

A favorite! 

The colors in Greencastle worked so well with your outfits!  

Seriously, this girl is the sweetest! She’s currently preparing for the performance of The Nutcracker in Indianapolis. 

And she’s crazy flexible! Look at that! I kept saying just drop your leg whenever you need to (as I was snapping pictures), but her sister informed me that what she was doing was pretty simple and Damaria could move her leg much higher. I was so impressed. (Wait until you see what else she can do below!) 

Eeekkk!! Love this one of you. You’re gorgeous. 

Before we moved to our next location, Damaria remember she brought his hat with her, so she threw it on, and we grabbed a few more shots. 

You just shine, girl! All I see is happiness!

Favorite breakfast food: chocolate chip waffles.

Another favorite! 

Before she put on her ballet shoes, she put her boots on to protect them and her feet as we walked to a waterfall – her one request! 

If you were a crayon, what color would you be? “Light pink.”

You are SO PRETTY! 

See! What talent! 

What do you hope to be doing in 20 years? “Working as a pediatric physical therapist.”

We shot until it was dark, but I could have spent hours and hours with this beauty. 

Damaria,

You are a class act. Your sweet and bubbly personality is contagious. It was an absolute pleasure spending the evening with you. Can’t wait to see what you do next! Enjoy the rest of your senior year!

Damaria’s sister, Jenna, was helping her balance right before I snapped a picture. (P.S. – We just photographed Jenna’s engagement session! We’re so excited to spend more time with this family!)

If your sister and mom tag along, we’re going to grab a few pictures together! Lovely ladies! 

Molli+Tyler

Meet Molli and Tyler! These two were married in Coatesville, Indiana, under a beautiful tree.

What?!? How beautiful is Molli?! 

Her daughter was too tired to get her hair done, so the hair stylist suggested this! 

The ladies got ready at Molli’s house where Molli’s three cats also live. She said people call her the crazy cat lady. 

One of her bridesmaids got her this very appropriate gift – “I’m getting meowied!” 

The hair stylists told the girls that these hair clips were actually for their nose – to take the stink away when they sprayed hairspray! Ha! 

You’re rockin’ those sunglasses, girl! 

How adorable is the back of the flower girl’s dress?!

And now to the guys! Here’s Tyler!

That smile!

Bow ties and suspenders! Nice choice. 

Guys, you were incredible. 

Molli, your man looked handsome! 

He wore his Andrew Luck socks. Near the end of the reception, one of his groomsmen took a picture of his socks and texted the image to Andrew Luck since he happens to be friends with him. Andrew texted back that it was pretty cool. (At least that’s what I was told!)

Ahhh!! I’m in love with these two boys! 

Ladies! You look amazing! 

Gah! Molli, you are perfect.

First look with her dad. 

The car ride to the ceremony! 

Molli’s dad and daughter walked her down the aisle.

Molli’s daughter also participated in the sand ceremony. 

First family photo on the left! Tyler’s mom and dad on the right. 

On the left: She was waiting for family photos to end.  On the right: This groomsmen said he wanted his own photo shoot. I think this suffices.

Love this wedding party!

See?? They’re awesome. 

Tyler proposed to Molli in Indianapolis near the canal. 

Kisses!!

You guys! I’m in love with your portraits. 

So many favorites. 

Brandy (from Brandy and Mitch) let Molli and Tyler know about us. I’m shouting at the top of my lungs, “Thank you, Brandy!” 

Another favorite! 

Ugghh!! I can’t even handle you two!

First dance. 

Father-daughter and mother-son first dance. 

The cake cutting turned a little violent. 

Sky shots for the win! 

I ran into Ben who I graduated high school with and had to get a picture of him and his beautiful fiance! 

Umm…they had some YMCA fun. 

Instead of Where’s Waldo, let’s play Where’s the Videographer? 

Love this crew!

Meet DJ Mike Welsh! 

At the end of the night, we asked Molli and Tyler if we could take a couple more portraits of them. What makes these images even better is the fact that they are standing in front of the tree they were married under a few hours earlier. (P.S. – Tyler strung all of those lights himself!)

Molli and Tyler,

You guys are a blast! We are so humbled by the fact that you chose us to photograph your wedding. We hope marriage is just as amazing as your wedding day.

Jenny+Chop

Look who’s back! That’s right. Jenny and Chop! They were married at The Barn at Kennedy Farm in Lizton, Indiana. 

If you look close, you can see her dress hanging in the middle of the barn. 

Here’s the beautiful Jenny! 

Her mama’s hands putting the finishing touches on her dress. 

And here’s the handsome Chop! Check out those stylin’ socks! 

Hey there, groomsmen! 

Nick captured some portraits of Chop before the groomsmen pictures.

Men, you sure do look dapper!

Eeekkk! Jenny!! So beautiful. 

I love these bridesmaids, and I LOVED learning about all of their pasts. (If I knew how to insert emojis, I would put a winky face here!)  

Seriously though, you ladies are beautiful. It was such a pleasure to meet all of you. 

Then the guests started arriving. Gotta get those pictures! 

Jenny and I were standing in that hallway waiting on her turn to walk out for the ceremony when I climbed a few of those stairs, and said, “Oh Jenny, just look right here for a second.”

Ring bearers sharing a few fruit snacks while waiting on their turn to walk down the aisle.  (My shot.)

And a few minutes later, as he was walking down the aisle, one of those ring bearers had a bit of a tumble. (Nick’s shot.) 

GAH! I adore this image. It was finally Jenny’s turn to make her way to Chop! 

Time to start the ceremony!

Tip: When you have an outdoor ceremony, check out your venue on a sunny day to make sure you won’t be standing in direct sun. That’s just no fun for your guests, you, or your pictures! The Barn at Kennedy Farm did a great job of placing the location of their outdoor ceremony where there was shade from the trees. 

Jenny and Chop’s officiant was quite the character and very entertaining.

Look at the way their looking at each other! 

Chop’s best man had the rings and may have dropped one in the process of transferring it from his hand to Chop’s. Their officiant said, “You had one job.” (You can see the video of this moment on the Instagram Story at the end of their blog!) No worries! They quickly found the ring and picked it up! 

Oh yeah! They’re married! 

Told ya! This officiant = AWESOME. 

As we were waiting on the rest of the family to gather around for pictures, this guy stole the show! 

Wedding party! You guys rocked! 

Ooohh! Love this one. 

Ahhh!! Chop, look at your lady that way forever! 

These two are so sweet. 

Looking gorgeous, Jenny! 

On the left: their wedding day. On the right: their engagement session.  (P.S. – We didn’t have any broken shoes this time!) 

These two actually took time to take a walk together before entering the reception. (Tip: It seems silly to say, but remember to spend time together on your wedding day. Sometimes it’s so busy that couples often forget to do that.)

First dance. 

The shoe game! 

Then the dancing began! 

Cuties on the right and cuties on the left! 

This guy on the left cracked me up! Chloe, my Instagram Story assistant, walked up to me during the reception and told me that this guy had been recording the dancing on his phone for quite a while, but she noticed that the phone wasn’t actually recording. He forgot to hit the record button. She said, “Should I tell him?” Yep! She did and he was very thankful.

On the right, there’s Jenny and her mom singing the night away!

We were able to get a few more images of these two during the reception while everyone else continued dancing. 

Taken in the parking lot. 

YOU GUYS!! You look absolutely stunning. 

Always love these shots. 

Sparkler exit. Yes, please. 

Jenny and Chop,

Thank you for your hospitality, patience, and kindness. We just love you guys. It was a fantastic day, and we’re so glad we were able to document it.

Caitlynn & Nick

Man, oh, man, these ladies were such fun!

Emily+Jordan

Emily and Jordan are back for their reception! They were married in Florida and returned to Indiana to celebrate with family and friends.

Instead of having a table where the wedding party sat together, they prepared a table for just the two of them, so their wedding party could sit with their own families. 

Check out that hashtag! FYI: Their last name is Marrs. 

Can’t have a reception without including some Disney! 

Cupcakes for guests!

Wedding party! 1. I love that Jordan has his dad in their wedding party. 2. I absolutely adore the way Jordan’s brother is looking at one of his groomsmen. 

In front of the famous Indiana State University fountain! Side note: Emily and Jordan’s engagement pictures started in front of this fountain too!

Oh goodness! You guys look fabulous! 

I simply love this couple! 

Jordan, lookin’ good, man! 

Before their reception, we were able to snap a few images of them. 

You guys are the cutest! 

We had just finished taking pictures of these two, and they were walking to their reception when I said, “Oh, oh, Emily! Turn around real quick.”

They had doughnuts packaged for all of their guests to take home. Umm…yes please! 

Toasts! 

Jordan’s dad gave a speech and also gave them a bottle of sand. After their wedding ceremony, he scooped up the sand that their toes were in. How sweet!

Nick’s view. 

My view. 

First dance in Indiana as husband and wife! P.S. My behind-the-scenes Instagram Story assistant could not stop saying, “Emily is so pretty! That bride is just so pretty!”

First dance with mom and dad. They had their mother-son and father-daughter dances at the same time!

Time to mingle with the guests! 

Showing us her dance moves!

Jordan’s brother was the life of the party! 

I don’t even remember what happened here, but it looks intense. 

Before the sun went down we grabbed some more family pictures outside.

Emily and Jordan are in the middle! 

Emily and Jordan,

You guys are such fun and radiate happiness! We hope marriage is wonderful and hope you can put your toes in the sand again soon!

Courtney+Holden

Meet Courtney and Holden! We met this stylish couple in Terre Haute for their engagement session. 

I can totally tell you guys are goo-goo ga-ga in love with each other by the way you look at one another.

Yes, Holden! Give your lady some kisses!

Hey there, cuties! “Will you snuggle for us in the middle of an alley?”

They’ve been together since high school. 

Courtney! Those eyes! I’m dying over this.

And Holden, that smile is perfecto!

Why hello there, color!

Gotta show off that ring!

When your outfit blows in the wind, I must get a shot!

YES times a million!

A favorite!

We moved from the city to some nature.

How gosh darn cute is Courtney!?

Okay, I love the shot on the left way too much.

Ugghh!! It was such a perfect evening.

They found us through Shelbie and AJ. Thanks, friends! Holden used to play baseball with AJ. 

Holden, you are rocking it, man!

You guys!! We had the most beautiful sunset!

Eeekkk!! My favorite image from your session!

Courtney and Holden,

You guys are the sweetest! I’m goo-goo ga-ga over YOU! Thanks for being an incredible couple to hang out with. We can’t wait for the wedding!
