Indiana Fall Stylized Session @The Bay Horse Inn

When I first started thinking about this stylized session, I didn’t know my team would be this incredible!  I now only wish I would of had video to capture even more detail live! -Next time-

This Sunday morning was an early one for everyone involved, but we sure did pull it off!  I am so obsessed with the entire session!  The goal for a stylized session is creating a look in which future brides can be inspired to use!  Of course they are a blast to do!  We get to put tons of creative ideas together and professionals come together to make it look beyond gorgeous.  I am in love with every piece from this session….so let me just get to sharing!

But, FIRST……..the team!

A gorgeous evening spent with these 3….a TRUE lifestyle session {Brian + Jene + Olivia}

These 3 make my life better….I smiled + laughed so much during this session. I photographed the wedding of Brian + Jene and now they are about to welcome baby #2 to their adorable family! Big sister, Olivia may not know yet what is going on, but there is no doubt she will be so in love with her baby sister. She is such a sweet, beautiful little girl. Brian plays guitar and sings, so we had to do a few photos of him for his album….my favorite was Olivia clapping and smiling so big when daddy would sing! And then there is mommy, Jene. Seriously….GORGEOUS! She is 31 weeks pregnant and looks flawless!

I love how these 3 can just be in a field for an hour and make the most of it…being themselves! My favorite type of sessions 😀
Enjoy just a few from their session last week!

An Incredible Island Wedding in Warsaw {Danilo + Madison}

I can’t even begin summarizing this day….it was incredible!  I remember Madison growing up…I always thought she was the most adorable little girl and now on her wedding day, she is truly stunning!  More than just her outer beauty, Madison is extremely sweet and kind hearted.  She has such a fun spirt and kind personality.   She is a brave teacher of little kiddos in the heart of Indianapolis and she exudes so much strength and love! I admire her.

I spoke with Danilo for the first time on a phone conversation.  I remember we were trying to plan out where I would be hiding for the proposal in order to get great photos, but not be seen by Madison. 😀  He was incredibly nervous, but so soft spoken.  When I finally met him, his smile confirmed what I could tell he was like on the phone.  He is genuine, sweet and full of love for Madison.  Not only do these two adore one another…but they both put GOD first in their lives and their relationship.  Their families are just the same and so this wedding day was more than just a celebration of these two becoming one, it was a celebration of our GOD and glorifying him in every way.  Thanking him for bringing these two hearts + souls together.

I completely fell in love with this day, this couple and their families.  They all brought Brandon and I so much joy and when we left their presence, we felt like better people.

We are so thankful for being able to document this perfect day.  We are blessed to know this family!

Congratulations Danilo + Madison….we wish you both nothing but love + happiness as you begin this journey together.

Enjoy more than a few of my favorites from their day!

The ceremony took place under this beautiful white tent on this perfect little Island!

A Sweet + Fun Engagement Session {Jenna + David}

This entire session was full of laughs, jokes and so much fun! These 2 are full of life and love for one another.  It is crazy to think they have known each other since they were very young….David remembers Jenna being about 4 years old!  Is this not the cutest?!  Through the session, they were incredibly laid back and just wanting to enjoy every moment.  We popped Champagne and glitter pops.  One was great and one was a bit of a fail…but it was so much fun 😉  I love a lifestyle engagement session that shows the love a couple shares through being themselves.  I adored this session and these two!  Can’t wait to capture their wedding day this November!

A lifestyle family session in the creek {Addilynn Turns 4}

This family I truly adore…I have photographed Addilynn since she was born and each year I get to see her, my heart loves her more and more.  She is so much fun and so full of personality.  She is sweet and loving.  Eric + Jen have raised an absolutely perfect little girl.  This session has been my favorite!  What better way to celebrate a birthday?? Swimming in a creek and having a blast sounds pretty perfect!  This lifestyle session was so much fun and I can’t wait to have my family photographed in a creek one day as well 😀
