A fall engagement session is the best, especially when it’s with a couple as kindhearted and in love as Maria and Eric!

The ceremony photos turn out breathtaking […]

There is something so magical about a fall vineyard wedding. I think the juxtaposition of mature grape vines overflowing with ripe fruit and the colorful, rusty shades of trees preparing to drop their leaves before winter creates a spellbinding combination. Mother Nature’s backdrop becomes beautifully dramatic with plenty of texture and color that adds just […]

Spring outdoor weddings are where it’s at! If you know me, then you know that Spring is my favorite season. I deeply love fresh, spring green and pastel colors. Budding leaves, and blossoming trees and bushes make my heart sing. My top favorite flowers are all spring blooms. Honestly, I wish it could be spring […]

Fall Engagement Photos are something many of my Brides request because it is absolutely gorgeous here in Indiana during that time of year! The world is on fire with brilliant shades of green, orange, red, and yellow. The humidity has subsided and there is a chilly nip in the air. Fall is also the driest […]
