But autumn seems to be the most stable season of all, with comfortable temperatures and vibrant colors all around. It’s no wonder that brides all over Indiana […]

I’m so excited to be offering Indianapolis wedding photography starting in 2022! There are still limited dates available for this season, and I will be opening my calendar for 2023 soon.

One of my favorite things about wedding photography is FLOWERS. And the best part about being a wedding photographer in Carmel, Indiana and the Indianapolis area is all of the incredibly talented Florists that I get to work with!     I am absolutely obsessed with fresh flowers. They can not only dramatically transform a […]

Every once in a while I am privileged to photograph an Elopement! (This one happened in my old town, but I’m super excited to now be offering elopement photography in Fishers, Indiana!) The best thing about Elopements is that the most enjoyable parts of a traditional wedding are preserved. The parts that, for some people, […]

I also thought it would be really fun to share a few of the wedding venues in Indianapolis, Carmel, Bloomington, […]

James and Rachel are two college sweethearts. They powered through all that 2020 and Covid -19 threw at them to get to their ultimate goal: being sealed for eternity in their Indianapolis Mormon Temple wedding. The Courtship and Proposal Rachel met James while attending BYU. They were both in the same FHE group and quickly […]

It was an honor working with and photographing Alaina and Alex’s gorgeous nuptials. They and their families are sweet as pie and I can’t wait to share the photos from their country club wedding. Getting Ready at Home Alaina chose to prepare for her wedding day at her childhood home, still occupied by her parents. […]

Last year I was asked to photograph one of my all-time favorite styled shoots that I have ever participated in! It was hosted by my long time friends and colleagues, Engaged! River Valley magazine, who pulled together a dream team of vendors to pull this beauty off. The inspiration behind the shoot was marrying Ernest […]

I’m so excited to be able to share the photos from this wedding in Louisville, KY! As much as I would love to brag that I’m always on top of my blogging, the truth is I’m just not. There are so many facets to running a small business, let alone being a photographer, that sometimes […]
