I’m, really looking forward to being a Greencastle, IN wedding photographer! Not only is there a really lovely, rustic wedding venue located in that area called Owl Ridge Wedding Venue and Event Center, it’s also only about 30-45 minutes from home!

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, […]

Since I am a photographer who is new to the Indianapolis wedding photography market, I thought I would take a minute to introduce myself and highlight some of my favorite images from my 2021 season. I also thought it would be really fun to share a few of the wedding venues in Indianapolis, Carmel, Bloomington, […]

Every so often, I get the opportunity to work for a client who is more than just a client. Terri is actually my beloved Second Shooter and my right-hand-woman at weddings. It was extra special to be able to spend and evening shooting a Couple’s Photo Session for her and her husband, Noah. A Couple’s […]

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 […]
