Autumn Wedding Inspiration Shoot at The Bauerhaus

While it seems the whole world has left Fall behind and moved on to Christmas, I’m still over hear with heart eyes for this gorgeous styled autumn wedding inspiration shoot that I organized with some of Evansville’s finest wedding vendors. Every time I have sat down to look at these photos I’m filled with all of the warmth and wonder that Autumn brings with it. All of the incredible artistry and details that went into this shoot completely blew me away, from the hand illustrated stationary and signs, to the fresh, locally grown and expertly arranged florals, to the incredible fireplace mantle and decor. Not to mention the mouth watering, 5 star quality entrees and desserts and gorgeous wardrobes. I’m pretty sure that after seeing this collection of images, every bride is going to want an Autumn wedding!evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0001evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0002evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0003evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0004evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0005evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0006evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0007evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0008evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0009evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0010evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0011evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0012evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0013evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0014evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0015evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0016evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0017evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0018evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0019evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0020evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0021evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0022evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0023evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0024evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0025evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0026evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0027evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0028evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0029evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0030evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0031evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0032evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0033evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0034evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0035evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0036evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0037evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0038evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0039evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0040evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0041evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0042evansville-indiana-wedding-photographer-bauerhaus-fall-inspiration-styled-shoot-_0043

Engaged! River Valley Magazine

Excitement, humility, hope….these are just a few of the emotions that have filled me over the last few months as I have been busy networking and collaborating with local artisan vendors to create some truly beautiful imagery that will help to elevate Evansville’s already bustling wedding market. Seeing the fruits of my labors in print form is the ultimate reward. I am so honored and blessed to have been included in the flagship issue of the new Engaged! River Valley magazine. I not only was asked to shoot for the magazine on two separate articles, but a beautiful styled shoot I helped organize this summer was given a 4 page spread plus the COVER of the magazine! I have several other photos sprinkled throughout the publication as well. I have no words to describe this warm, fuzzy feeling in my soul. I have LOTS and LOTS of copies to share with anyone who would like one, so don’t hesitate to contact me if you do! Thank you JoElle Knight and Nikki Davis for finding value in my work and for the beautiful friendship and support you have given me! I look forward to a long, loving, and fruitful relationship with you both, personally and professionally! Don’t forget to check out Engaged! River Valley online as well! https://engaged-rivervalley.com/

HayHush Editorial Shoot

I had the amazing opportunity to team up with Hayley Stayner, the uber-talented and beautiful fashion blogger from HayHush.com, for a fun editorial shoot! We had so much fun tromping through the “wilderness” in her pretty shoes and outfits, making some incredible images for her upcoming features. Plus, it gave me the opportunity to take a break from some of my mundane photographer duties and focus on capturing movement and beauty from someone who really knows how to work it! Any boy, did Hayley work it! I could get used to working with models on a regular basis, lol! Thank you so much, Hayley, for allowing me to borrow your pretty face and for spending the afternoon with me! I had so much fun remembering why I love being a photographer and creating some images that will hopefully be inspiring to both of our readers! XOXOXO!
