Mr. and Mrs. Puckett

The best thing about Carmen and Gage was they wanted a stress free day and they achieved it better than any couple I’ve ever photographed. They turned traditional upside down and here’s how. They opted out of a bridal party and instead got ready with close friends and family around, but with less chiffon and boutonnieres. Carmen said nah to a traditional bouquet and instead carried a clutch, so smart right?! They originally wanted to have their ceremony on the stairs at Palladium in Carmel IN, but turns out there was a graduation that moved us just to the side in the garden area which was just as pretty! They didn’t fuss over ceremony music or programs but instead gathered up their family and friends and did the dang thing! The reception followed at Sun King Brewery, cocktail style and the pizza they served hit the freaking spot! Peep their day below! They killed it!

Styled, Part I

I think the biggest thing I’ve cherished this last year is meeting some super rad genuine people within my small town. I moved away when I went to college near Chicago, did a small stint in Maryland for a few months and ultimately came home to grow my adult roots. My small town will always be my home base, even when I’m coming and going. I’ve loved watching creatives in this humble town of ours come together and create.

Speaking of rad locals. This styled shoot was a dream come true and I couldn’t have made it happen on my own. Lavender and Hops Style Lounge, Vanessa Nicole Planning and Events  and I dreamed up the initial more simplistic idea of a husband and wife styled shoot. Turns out we are extra and wanted to involve three gal models instead and my crazy idea of incorporating livestock (more of that in part II).

Sometimes things just kind of fall together. Jessica’s On Main recently opened their bridal dress boutique and to say we were excited about incorporating their dresses into the shoot would be and understatement. Pam and her team were incredible to work with and the dresses OH MY LORD!

Peep the magic below.

Andy + Abbie

I had been looking forward to photographing Abbie and Andy’s wedding since we first set foot at their wedding venue for their engagement session. It was everything I imagined it would be the day of. All of the details were stunning and Abbie and Andy are some of the raddest, most chill people around! I couldn’t have asked for a better day peep their preview below!

Mr. and Mrs. Dillon

You can’t have a 4th of July wedding without fireworks, sparklers or both! Kirstin and Tyler didn’t disappoint! It was a fun-filled holiday, celebrating with both of their families just before they jetted off to start their marriage in California! I know just how much their families miss them and so this post is mainly for them to reminisce the joy and family filled day!

Venue: Hidden Hollow Farm

Mr. and Mrs. Taylor

Get you a bride that is also an event planner (C. Taylor Events). Why? Because she will send you a shot list for her wedding and you wont have to touch it. She will make you an actual spread sheet. And laminate it. And you will want to thank her a million times over! Chelsea and Ethan were the dream team when it came to photographing a bride and groom. Their wedding was beautifully done and filled with those little moments that every photographer weeps over when editing. Check it out for yourself. Their love is goals.

Also, shoutout to the groomsmen with the solo dance? moves. haha!

Another Beeler Wedding!

Do you remember the proposal photos of Erik and Meagan? They recently tied the knot and I couldn’t have been more excited to play a role in documenting their love story from proposal to the big day! The Beeler’s are practically family, so spending a Saturday celebrating their marriage felt more like a fun family reunion than a job.

Their wedding was set at the beautiful Turner Barn in Plainfield Indiana and we couldn’t have asked for better weather and an all around perfect day. To the tiniest of details, bean field and silos I practically died during their first look and couples photos. Check out the festivities below!

Also, shout out to Cait for being magic when it comes to second shooting for me and getting in all the awkward moves. Pregnant and all!

Mr. and Mrs. Welcher

To say I’ve been able to photograph some amazing brides and grooms this year would be an understatement. Here we have Jess and Adam. Adam told people I made the Forbes 30 under 30 list this year. I mean it’s not true, but maybe someday ha! Jess wore a flower crown and I wanted to die right there on the floor in their getting ready room. The entire day was relaxed and special and hot. It’s possible they brought the heat with their good looks and love for one another. See for yourself and don’t act like you won’t say good heavens when you see them

Mr. and Mrs. Sells

Do you remember the couple whose engagement photos we did with the planes? The couple that straight looked like they walked off of a runway or GQ magazine spread? Yeah, those two recently got married and I can’t even with their wedding. Literally at a loss of words to describe the love between the two of them. I knew photographing their wedding would be about waiting for those silent moments, the secret love filled looks they gave to only each other, but then jumping on the spontaneous candid moments. Their hearts and souls are literally filled with gold and I can’t thank them enough for allowing me to share their day! Now then, laugh, cry  and enjoy the love with a peek of their day below!

Mr. and Mrs. Richmond!

Remember that time I blogged a wedding? Hey, yeah me neither BUT today is the day y’all! I’m just about wrapped up with Ashley and Michael’s wedding and it deserves to be shared worldwide. You guys, it was simply whimsical, magical, gorgeous all of the above good things. Her dress was custom designed by her friend/designer (he’s seriously going places, don’t forget me!) and it was flawless. His bow tie was snail print. I mean, c’mon need I say more? Check out their day below!

“Married life is fantastic. I highly recommend it” -Mrs. Claxton

Well these two were incredible and their venue, to die for! I highly underestimated the inspiration and all of the goodness Billie Creek Village had to offer during my elementary school field trip days. The fact is, it’s an AH MAZE ING place, a photographers dream!

Meet the newly Mr. and Mrs. Claxton! I first met them literally on their wedding day, but the love that flowed through them and the fun spirit of the day had myself and my team feeling like we had known them forever! Fun fact shout out to Teresa’s sister, Laura, who gets most of the credit for this photography journey I’m on and connecting me with so many people including Teresa!

Below is a preview of their day. Experience for yourself all of the love and all of the happy giddiness we all got to feel on their special day!
