When my cousin, Haleigh, asked if I’d shoot her wedding I didn’t hesitate. We grew up playing together- our moms would drive halfway between our Michigan towns so we could spend the night at each others’ house. I knew it’d be a gorgeous day and I was thrilled to photograph the wedding of someone dear to me. I didn’t realize how special it would be until she put on her dress and I started crying! I’m so happy for these two to have found each other and was so honored to capture their beautiful day.

Bailey and Tyler // an Illinois wedding

Not only did Bailey and Tyler have an unusually beautiful July day to celebrate their new marriage (since when is it mid-70s and no humidity in late summer?), but they had, hands down, the BEST dance party I’ve ever photographed. They were quite impressive with their swing moves on the dance floor, but they weren’t the only ones out there. What fun!

Carly and Ryan // a Michigan wedding

If you’ve spent any time on Lake Michigan, you know how lovely the coast is. Holland, Michigan is no exception, so when Carly and Ryan told us their plans to marry in a little chapel in Holland, followed by a reception at a shipyard, we knew it’d be a gorgeous day. The beautiful weather mirrored this couple’s new marriage surrounded by family and friends. We couldn’t be happier for you two!

Meghan and James // Indianapolis Engagement

When I first met Meghan and James, I was struck by their love for each other. I’ve been sitting here trying to figure out exactly how to describe it and I don’t know how. I’ll just say it’s obvious that they are meant for each other. This is the kind of love that inspires me and keeps me photographing couples. AND when we brainstormed this session, they were up for my idea of shooting at Plat99, which made for a really fun (and colorful!!) time.

Kristin and Jonathan // Indianapolis Lifestyle

I can’t put into words how much I adore this couple. Their joy is contagious- you can probably feel it oozing from these images. We decided to do more of a little lifestyle than engagement shoot, so they recreated a typical Saturday morning for the occasion- Motown on the speakers, breakfast, delicious coffee (Jonathan roasts his own beans), and homemade bread. I’m thrilled to photograph their wedding this fall!
