When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.

~Nora Ephron, When Harry Met Sally

The entire time I was taking Claire and Kyle’s engagement pictures, this was the quote that kept filling my mind. I love it when couples are so excited about the future. And why shouldn’t they be?! They’re about to embark on the best and biggest adventures of their lives…marriage! I wish them all the best and all of the happiest things.

“When you embark for strange places, don’t leave any of yourself safely at shore. Have the nerve to go into unexplored territory.”

I love taking senior pictures. It’s such a special time in a young person’s life. So much of what they’ve known…so much of what’s familiar is about to be replaced with new people, new places, new things.

It’s a time filled with nerves, exciting new adventures, and (understandably) a little bit of trepidation.

If I could give seniors one little piece of advice, it would be to dive into new adventures with their whole self. Go beyond your fear and dare to do what’s new and different. Have faith that it will all work out in the end. Listen to the people who love you and let them guide you even if it’s new and different.

Natalie was FABULOUS to work with! Her sense of style, her great smile, and sunny attitude…..I have no doubt that whatever her future brings, wherever her adventures take her, she will absolutely succeed.View More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/natalie-to-give

Kari and Blake were married at Calvary Church in Valparaiso and had their reception at Aberdeen Manor. I love taking photographs of couples who have known one another for years and years….there’s a comfort, an ease between them. It’s clear in how they move through the day that they know they’re marrying the person who knows them best in the world. Marrying the person who they can count on to keep their heart safe. Marrying the person who has been there for them always and who will continue to be there for them for the rest of their days.

Weddings like this one are special. Blake and Kari, thank you so much for letting me be a small part of your forever. View More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/kariandblakeklisurichV E N D O R S

This. Sweet. Couple. I can’t get over them!! Meghan and Mark were married and had their reception at Aberdeen Manor in Valparaiso, IN. I was lucky enough to photograph their wedding day and it went perfectly. As sweet as this couple is, their love story is even sweeter. After reading it, it’s clear that some couples are just meant to be! In the words of the bride and groom…

We met at Griffith Middle School when Mark started teaching Social Studies there in 2009. I had been teaching math for 2 years there already in a classroom right down the hall from him. When he moved into his classroom, I went down the hall to introduce myself.

Mark: I knew Meghan was the one when we went geocaching. We would always have fun and would laugh together. For my birthday, she organized a scavenger hunt geocache during our same prep hour at school. She got the assistance from her mom and dad and they made puzzle pieces. I always would go down to her classroom and ask her random questions that year. We became friends, but that scavenger hunt was the one thing that pushed me into knowing that she truly was the perfect person for me.

Meghan: In the fall of 2011, Mark came on a family vacation to Mexico with my sister and her then boyfriend/now husband, my parents, a friend, and one of our coworkers/friends. We hadn’t really been hanging out as friends instead of as coworkers for very long, so I didn’t know too much about him and his outside-of-school personality. I thought he might be a little shy to be surrounded by people he hardly knew. Boy, was I wrong. Mark was the life of the pool party. We made up games to play with each other in the pool while the others sunbathed, and he was constantly making me laugh and making sure my mother was taken care of drink-wise at the pool. By the end of day one, my mom was calling him her Pool Boy. After that vacation, I thought…”okay…we would be great together.” My mind was made up when Mark agreed to call off of work in February and drive down to Indy to try to score tickets to Jimmy Fallon while he was broadcasting from there for the Super Bowl. We didn’t score seats to the actual show, but we got to sit in on a monologue rehearsal. As we sat down in the front row with Jimmy Fallon ten feet from us, we gave each other a high five and that was the moment.

“I see you everywhere, in the stars, in the river; to me you’re everything that exists; the reality of everything.”

Gina and Jason were married at The Lighthouse in Cedar Lake, IN. They’re such a sweet couple and their love story is one of the sweetest. When it’s true love, you see it. You feel it. It radiates. After hearing their love story and being there for their wedding day, I have no doubt that it is absolutely true love. In the words of the bride…
View More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/ginaandjasonhawkinsweddingalbumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/ginaandjasonhawkinsweddingalbumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/ginaandjasonhawkinsweddingalbumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/ginaandjasonhawkinsweddingalbumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/ginaandjasonhawkinsweddingalbumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/ginaandjasonhawkinsweddingalbumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/ginaandjasonhawkinsweddingalbumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/ginaandjasonhawkinsweddingalbumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/ginaandjasonhawkinsweddingalbumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/ginaandjasonhawkinsweddingalbum

“There was no single moment that I knew Jason was “the one”, I feel like it was million small moments that made me realize he is the one I wanted to spend my life with. It was the way he held my hand a little tighter to tell me he loved me before something I was nervous about. It was the way he texted me every morning to tell me “good morning beautiful have a good day”. It was the way he could make me laugh no matter how bad my day was going. It was how he put hundreds of stars on my ceiling at college and wrote, “Jason Loves Gina more than there are stares in the sky.” However, If I had to pick one single moment when I knew Jason was the “the one” I think it would be after Jason left for many weeks for work. I missed him so much, and when he came back I realized that home, wasn’t a place anymore. I realized that I could make a home anywhere as long as Jason was there.”

“Our Proposal is kind of a funny story. I knew that Jason had a ring and I hate surprises. So, I delayed my own engagement many times, due to asking to0 many questions and being suspicious that it was about to finally happen. Jason, however, did manage to surprise me. On Christmas morning this past year, we woke up kind of late to go to his parents house to open presents. When we got there everything seemed normal. I went to open a card and he asked me to stand up. I knew then it was about to happen. Jason wrote me a beautiful note inside of the card and asked me to be his wife.”

Emma and Evan were married at the Holy Spirit Chapel at St. Mary’s and had their reception at The Brick in South Bend. I loved the beautiful romantic touches, the gorgeous flowers that filled the room and most of all the way the bride and groom looked at one another.

So sure…

So happy…

So ready to celebrate this day that they’d been waiting to arrive.

Emma and Evan, thank you so much for letting me be a small part of your special day. I wish you every bit of happiness in your forever after.

Meghan and Paul were married at Sand Creek Country Club in Chesterton, IN. They had a gorgeous ceremony and reception! I just love it when a couple is so in sync. Paul and Meghan were a beautiful example of this–the way they could look at one another and really just communicate their needs without even speaking. It’s the way it should be.

“I love you.” “I know.”

-Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

Lauren and Zach were married at SS Constantine & Helen Cathedral and had their reception at Gambas Resturant in Merrillville. What I loved most about this wedding (besides the stunning flowers, gorgeous details, and AMAZING bridal gown…) were the personal touches that were everywhere. It’s the personal touches…the glimpses of the bride and groom’s personality shining through their choices…it’s then that as a photographer you feel like you really and truly get to know the bride and groom. In the words of the bride…

“We met in the geekiest way possible – at a Star Wars convention! We both attended Star Wars Celebration VI in Orlando, Florida, in August of 2012. Zach had already been living in Miami for a few years after he finished university, and I had just finished grad school in Indiana. About a week after meeting, I found a job listing for a librarian at the University of Miami that fit my background, skill set and shiny new Masters degree. I didn’t think there was much likelihood of getting the position – I was straight out of grad school and UM is a large research institution – but sure enough, six months later I’d passed through all the interviews and was on my way to Miami. Zach helped me get settled into the area and we’ve been together ever since.”

“How did I know he was the one? This came on so gradually I’m not sure there was a single moment for either of us. At some point we realized we kept making plans for years in advance, and it became hard to imagine a future without the other one in it.”

“We were in Northwest Indiana in June of 2015 visiting my family for my sister’s wedding. We spent a few days traveling around locally, including a couple days up in Chicago seeing the museums and the Shedd. Zach and I had passed our second (dating) anniversary a few weeks earlier, and we’d talked about where things were going – with my sister’s wedding that month it was hard not to – and we’d pretty much agreed we’d be getting married at some point in the near future. For the proposal, I wasn’t sure exactly what he was planning or when, though. During one of the Chicago trips, Zach suggested we go to Water Tower Place. I was a little confused because I thought he was talking about the mall, but it turned out he was referring to the actual old Water Tower. We took a horse and buggy ride and then he proposed in front of the Water Tower after it was lit up in the evening.”

“Being big geeks who met at a Star Wars convention, we immediately knew we wanted the theme for our wedding to be “space.” We’ve tried to incorporate a lot of stars and light. Zach and I went together to pick out my ring after the proposal, but for the proposal itself, he made me a ring out of wood and aluminum.”

I am so lucky….there are days when I really feel that I am one of the luckiest photographers….Abby and Edward’s wedding day was one of those days. These two lovebirds were married at St. John’s Church and had their reception at Aberdeen Manor. There was so much beauty in what they’d chosen for their wedding day that I had a hard time capturing it all. What I love even more (and if you follow my blog, you know this about me! ha!) is learning about the couple before I take pictures of their wedding day. I love a good story and Abby and Edward’s is one of the sweetest. In the words of the bride….

“We met in high school. He had transferred to my high school, Andrean, after his father passed away to be closer to his extended family. He started playing sports and became friends with my older brother, and then we hit it off. Somehow, despite my brother’s over-protectiveness, he slipped through the cracks, and we’ve been dating ever since we were 16 and 17 years old!”

“I knew Eddie was “the one” about 7 months into dating him.. I was only 17 years old and at the kitchen table with my mom talking about true love and how she knew when my dad was “the one”. It was a big deal to me to even think that I loved Eddie at that point, yet I felt all those emotions. She probably thought I was a crazy, teenage girl with a crush and never realized that we would actually get married ten years later!”

“He proposed when we were on a trip to celebrate his graduation from law school. He had studied for the bar exam all summer long, so we wanted to treat ourselves to some fun when he was done. We hadn’t looked at rings yet, and I didn’t even think he had my ring size! “

“We went to San Francisco for a few days and then Napa Valley, where he proposed on the last day of our trip. I had planned the whole trip and scheduled winery tours that day. He rearranged all those plans without my knowing, so he could propose at my favorite winery known for champagne and pinot noir, Domaine Carneros. Since the winery concierge knew what was happening, they had a “cancellation” on this private balcony and asked us if we wanted to take that table instead when we first arrived. I thought, “how lucky are we?!” We had this incredible view and were in awe by the beauty of the valley and vines. He asked me if I was sure I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him and I had thought nothing of it and replied, “of course.” He then proceeded to ask, “Are you sure?” which I thought was odd, so I jokingly responded “Why? Are you proposing?” (Never thinking in a million years, he actually was!) Then he stood up and walked around the table and got on one knee and brought out this beautiful ring and proposed! I was in disbelief!”

“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…”

I can’t think of a better quote to capture the feeling of this wedding day! Not only for Randy and Corinne, but for a photographer as well! The Patrick Haley Mansion in Joliet, IL (along with all of the beautiful details) made this wedding one for the books. It had a gorgeous vintage charm that made the entire day feel as though we’d been dropped into another place and another time. Randy and Corinne were so sweet to work with–she was such an organized bride!! The whole day was perfect. It ran smoothly and was filled with beauty. It was everything a wedding should be and so much more! Congratulations, you two. Thank you for letting me be part of your special day.  View More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/corinneandrandalweddinggalleryView More:

Kathy and Alex were married at the Valparaiso University Chapel of the Resurrection and had their reception at The Market (formerly Strongbow Inn–a Valparaiso, Indiana landmark!). I love shooting weddings at the VU Chapel because there is something about this beautiful church that really just resonates with me…the stain glass windows…the long long long aisle…it’s truly a beautiful place to say “I Do.” What’s even more special is that this was where Alex’s parents were married 28 years ago! How cool is that?! Thank you so much for letting me be part of your special day, Kathy and Alex! I wish you many years of happiness and wedded bliss.

Wouldn’t it be amazing to take your engagement pictures in the clouds? This pretty engagement session at Taltree Arboretum gave us a feel for what it would look like! In a word? Magical. Sometimes summer evenings are just like that! It’s almost like the universe creates a perfect setting for you. The evening of Olivia and Jeff’s engagement pictures was definitely one of those days!

Olivia and Jeff are such a sweet couple. You can see it in the tender ways they touch one another…..a kiss to the forehead…sweet hand holding…. I’m so excited to be photographing their 2017 wedding!

Cory and Hannah were married at Saint Mary’s College–a GORGEOUS venue with so many picturesque spots. It really was a photographer’s dream! Tulip and Rose were my second photographers for this wedding day. When I’m taking pictures of a wedding day, I love thinking back to hearing about how the couple met–imagining their story as it led them to this day. In the words of the bride and groom, here is how Cory and Hannah met and fell in love…

We met on November 2, 2010 at an Entrepreneurship conference in Chicago. (We were both presidents of our school’s chapter of CEO Club – Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization) We started talking about travel, owning businesses, etc and the rest is history!” …

Hannah told her roommate the next day that she knew it was crazy but she felt like she was going to marry Cory! It was only a few months later that they had truly fallen in love and knew it was meant to be!”

Cory suggested that they go out to a nice dinner at an Italian restaurant while living in Minneapolis. After a delicious meal with wine & dessert, he suggested that they go see if their favorite waterfall was lit up at night (it was!). After walking around the park for a few minutes, Cory got down on one knee and proposed! It was a perfect & complete surprise! He had champagne & glasses hidden in the car for a romantic toast!”

Family pictures offer such a sweet break for me. I love weddings and engagements, but family pictures really change it up! It’s like watching the happily ever after in action 🙂 The Simms family is so great to work with. I love that I’ve gotten to take their pictures a few times because they are just truly great people. They laugh, they smile, their little one is TOO CUTE FOR WORDS (c’mon, guys, just LOOK at that little jacket/tie combo!!)….yep. It’s sessions just like this one that make me realize how much I really love this job that I get to do!

“Family isn’t an important thing. It’s everything.”

I love this family. They’re just so much fun! I was there for their wedding…took pictures when they were expecting the little cutie in this post….and now I get to be there to take photographs when there’s another one on the way! I feel so very blessed to be able to watch families grow and change. It’s such a special experience for me. To even be a small part of people’s lives as they build their families, is a blessing.

There is something special about holding prints in your hands….

The weight of them….

The beautiful paper….

The images that are so precious….

They’re moments. Captured in time. Given to someone as a piece of their history that they can hold on to.

I thought that the prints should have something beautiful to hold them and keep them safe, so I went on the hunt for the perfect box. The perfect way to deliver these sweet photographs to their owners. These boxes by Autumn Wood Work were just the ticket.

Katelyn and Daniel were married and had their ceremony at Upland Community Church. Sometimes people fall in love instantly. Love at first sight. For others it happens slowly and over time….a slow burn. Both types of love stories are so sweet because eventually each person in the couple has that “A HA! I’M IN LOVE!” moment and then the happily every after-ing can begin! Whether it happens right away or after a while, all you can see on so many wedding days is that the love seems to have been there since the beginning.

In the words of the bride and groom, this is when they “knew”….

“We don’t really believe in “the one” as it’s normally described. Katelyn had a crush on Daniel since junior high. For Katelyn, she had always admired the way Daniel loved God and others, was kind despite his circumstances, and loved to laugh and learn. Learning to love Daniel was just as easy as falling off a log.”

“For Daniel, he “saw the light” when he left to go to Iowa City. Daniel enjoyed spending time with Katelyn and wanted to see if their friendship could develop into something more. We long distance dated for a year and a half exchanging (snail mail letters every week.) Daniel loves the generosity Katelyn shows to others and they way she loves God and the Bible.”

“Daniel proposed on a warm December day (60 degrees!) in Peoria IL. Peoria was halfway between where Katelyn was living (Lafayette, IN) and where Daniel lives (Iowa City, IA). He prepared a brunch under the same pavilion in their favorite park where they started dating a year and a half ago.”

Juan and Griselda were married at County Line Orchard last year and I can’t believe I’m just now getting the chance to post this beautiful wedding day. What makes this particular orchard wedding different was how much love and dedication was shown to the culture of the bride and groom. There was music and dancing and happiness all around and that made this wedding day so memorable. I love walking into a wedding where I am immediately drawn into the happiness and excitement of the day. It’s almost as though there’s something in the air! Juan and Griselda, you two are so lovely. Thank you for letting me be part of your day.

Coffee, Star Wars, and Puppy Dogs–can you imagine a more fun engagement session?! I can’t!! Carrie and Shawn are getting married later this year and what I love most about these two is how they let their personalities shine through the photographs! I love it when couples bring a little something special to the table. It makes each session feel unique!

When I asked how these two lovebirds met, I loved hearing the story and thought I’d share it with you….something about a man noticing his future wife as soon as he sees her walk into the room for the first time makes me feel like I could just melt. In the words of the bride and groom……

“We met June 2014 at Ruby Tuesday in Warsaw, IN. Shawn was working as a line cook and training to be a manager. Carrie had to quit her office job to accommodate her graduate school schedule and decided on a whim to try being a waitress. We met on Carrie’s first night at work. Shawn claims that he remembers the moment Carrie walked into the kitchen for the first time. He wooed her by throwing french fries at her when she wasn’t looking. Carrie eventually gave in and found out how charming he is!”

Leslie and Scott were married just a few short weeks ago in a beautifully rustic ceremony at County Line Orchard. All of these weddings have led me to start thinking “How do you know if this person is ‘the one'”?? Is it a feeling….a moment….a memory that you replay over and over? I love asking brides and grooms when they knew their wife or husband to-be was “the one” because even though the answers are always so different, at their heart, they are the same: “I just knew.” Scott and Leslie have such a sweet story and I feel so lucky that they shared some of it with me….in the words of the bride, this is how Leslie knew Scott was the one.

“From the first date, everything just seemed so natural with Scott and I just had a gut feeling. He was always going above and beyond to make me happy, and it was so easy to feel his love, happiness, and ease of the relationship. It was mutual for him as well. I had dated guys in the past, but had never considered myself to be in love. This intense feeling just came over me about how much he meant to me and I cared for him, and I was like, “hmm I think this is what falling in love is.” View More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-and-scott-wedding-albumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-and-scott-wedding-album13View More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-and-scott-wedding-albumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-and-scott-wedding-albumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-and-scott-wedding-albumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-and-scott-wedding-albumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-and-scott-wedding-albumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-and-scott-wedding-albumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-and-scott-wedding-albumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-and-scott-wedding-albumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-and-scott-wedding-albumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-and-scott-wedding-albumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-and-scott-wedding-albumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-and-scott-wedding-albumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-and-scott-wedding-albumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-and-scott-wedding-albumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-and-scott-wedding-album4View More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-and-scott-wedding-albumView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-and-scott-wedding-album

We started dating in mid October, and for Christmas that year one of my gifts was to go to The Rockets/ Christmas spectacular on Christmas Eve. It was my first year working as a nurse, I worked nights, and I was working Christmas as my holiday so I was bummed not to get to spend it with family for the first time ever. He knew that. We opened gifts with each other Christmas Eve morning, and then we got to go to the show that afternoon before I had to go into work. After the show, we were sitting back at my apartment and I wanted to say “I love you”. Coincidentally, he ended up saying it, and I said it back. That was when I thought “I am almost positive he is ‘the one’ and I really hopes he feels the same”.

My feelings were validated by how well he treated me, and how easy our relationship was. He was my best friend and family in the city, he loved my family/ friends and got along with him and vice versa. It was just easy, wonderful, and I was the happiest I had ever been!”

Engagement sessions are so special. They’re EXTRA special when a couple is so much fun! Amy and Nathan were such a good time to work with–you can see it in their huge smiles, they way they look at one another, and the way their bodies seem to find one another again and again. When a couple is nervous or unsure in front of the camera for an engagement session, you can see it in the pictures…CLEARLY this was not an issue for this couple!! I love how comfortable they were and how easily they were able to just be themselves while I was snapping pictures. I cannot wait for their wedding this December!

“Grow old along with me…the best is yet to be.”

There is something so romantic and beautiful about rustic weddings. The flowy dresses…the raw materials…the gorgeous flowers…all of these things when put together make for a setting so beautiful that pictures DEMAND to be taken. On Carrie and Ryan’s wedding day, I couldn’t help myself. Their wedding was held at a private family farm and the whole day from start to finish felt perfectly intimate. I couldn’t get over the details!! There were so lovely things to take pictures of that I may have gone just a little bit picture crazy. The blue and white invitations…the FLOWERS…the sweet little two-seater bike…the family portraits at the reception… This many pretty details is a photographer’s dream!

But even better, was the kindness of the bride and groom as well as their family. They were all so welcoming to me and that is what really makes a wedding day so wonderful to be part of. Happy days, Carrie and Ryan! I wish you all the best!

Alyssa and Steven are engaged! We got to head up to the city to take their engagement pictures at Lincoln Park Zoo. I love how many varied areas there are to take pictures! What’s even crazier to me is that when you’re in the middle of Lincoln Park Zoo, you almost forget the fact that you’re also in the middle of a huge city! So many pretty places, so little time….

I love hearing how couples met, and Steven and Alyssa’s story is so sweet. In the words of the bride-to-be, she and Steven met on a blind double date (with Alyssa’s friend and husband) to a comedy improv club, followed by dinner at a Mexican restaurant and a board game. The next day, as soon as Steven friended Alyssa on Facebook, she asked him out to go salsa dancing. Alyssa was charmed by his intelligence, his great sense of humor and his wicked dance moves! And the rest is history!”

I can’t wait to take their wedding pictures this coming fall!

Wedding days are fast paced. There’s a lot of excitement and a lot of running—it’s a blast! Sometimes, though, you have a calm wedding day–different, but equally as wonderful. Everyone is steady…happy…and the little worries that can sometimes fill a wedding day (the cake, the ribbons, the timeline) have just floated away somewhere that can’t be seen. On these days, the bride and groom are just present. Living in this moment. Ready to get married. Surrounded by the loving support of their families, that’s exactly how Rose and Emmanuel’s day was. These two lovebirds were married just a few short weeks ago at their family home. If there were any wedding day jitters, I certainly didn’t see them! I only saw a beautiful couple filled with love, emotion, and the unshakable knowledge that they will be together forever. Rose and Emmanuel, thank you for letting me be a teeny tiny part of your forever.

How do I even describe how special Katrina and her family are to me? They were one of the first families we met when we moved here…our babies grew up together…

Katrina is my wedding day partner in crime and can always make me laugh. She never fails to impress me and her friendship is something I will always hold dear to my heart. 

I guess the best way to describe how special Katrina and her family are to me would be to just simply say, I love them. Truly I do.

Oh it’s one of those days…well, let’s be honest, most days are one of those days….one of those days where I am just in love with love! These two lovebirds are the perfect example of sweet young love. Their engagement session was so much fun! It was a crisp, fall day and we were out tromping through the weeds to get a pretty picture (hmmm that sounds like a familiar scenario! ha!), but Jordan and her husband-to-be were just wonderful–so easy and sweet to work with. When a couple is relaxed during a photo session, you can just feel it looking at the pictures, and that’s exactly how they were! Relaxed and having a good time 🙂 I wish them all the best as they start their new journey together!

These two are having a baby!  I cannot even imagine what this little one is going to be like!  I know for sure that she will never wonder if she is loved because these two are not just beautiful on the outside but beautiful way down deep in their souls.  Stephanie was not only an amazing teacher to one of my littles but a photography partner in crime and an amazing friend.  I knew Dino was a keeper the first time I met him he offered to carry all my gear!  I know that each person that comes into your life is there for a reason and I love having them be a part of it.  I know this is  the start of their little family and they are going to knock it out of the park.  I can’t wait to meet this little bundle!  Each and every time I photograph them from their engagement proposal to now their maternity I find such joy that I am a tiny small part of their memories!  I love these maternity pictures because these two can literally not take a bad picture!

Here is to more memories and more photographs!

(FYI Stephanie is what I thought I would look like pregnant in my dreams!)

“You’ll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream…”

These dreamy engagement photos were so much fun to take. A walking, talking fairy tale. The sunlight setting through the trees (not to mention this happy, beautiful couple!) made for a perfect afternoon. When I look at these pictures, all I can see is joy. It’s that sweet and special joy you see in the eyes of a couple in love. Kristin and Blair will be married in April of 2017 and I am so excited to be there to capture every sweet moment. Their love and excitement for the future flows out of every picture—it’s in their smiles…their laughter…their effervescent happiness. Truly a dream to photograph.

WOW! Can we talk about how beautiful this couple is?! Kathy and Alex had their engagement pictures taken at Sunset Hill Farms in Valparaiso, Indiana. Their wedding is coming up in just a few weeks and OH. MY. GOODNESS. I have no doubt in my mind that they will make a gorgeous bride and groom!

Kathy and Alex have such a light and sweet relationship. They laugh and joke and even after working with them for just a short time, I can tell that they just truly enjoy spending time together. It’s in the little things…the way he looks at her…the way she smiles at him…the way they both seem to gravitate towards each other. I cannot wait to photograph their wedding!

Oh this sweet couple! Leslie and Scott had their engagement photographs taken at Taltree Arboretum in Valparaiso, Indiana. Their wedding is coming up in just a few short days and I couldn’t be more excited to be there to capture it all…

There’s so much EXCITEMENT leading up to the big day! The planning, the little details coming to life, the coordinating that has to take place. Sometimes it’s so nice to just slow down…breathe…relax and take it all in. This is it. These are the moments before the big moment. I really feel that Scott and Leslie are a perfect example of what it looks like to just love being in love. They’re relaxed, open, and seem so ready to take this step together. I can’t wait for their wedding day! View More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-giveView More: http://foreveroctoberphotography.pass.us/leslie-murphy-to-give

The sun was not shining.  It was one of those days where the weather could not decide whether it was going to be rain or sun.  The smiles on these two made up all the difference!  I have never met two happier people! I was drawn into them immediately.  I wanted to get to know them, I can admit it I want to hang out with them.  Not in a stalker sort of way but to be around their genuiness…Needless to say I loved the session and there will be a picture overload I cannot help it!  They were the winners of the giveaway at Unveiled Weddings!  Makeup by Sta-Glam!  Hair by Under the Veil!

“Love is sweet when it’s new, it’s even sweeter when it’s true.”

And what a SWEET couple they are! Kristy and Andrew were married at The Uptown Center in Michigan City and had their reception at Sand Creek Country Club in Chesterton. The two of them have such a perfect connection—easy, light, full of laughter and full of hope…all of the ingredients for a perfect wedding day. Because, if you think about it, even if everything about the wedding day is “perfect” (and more importantly, even if it’s not), what matters the most…what stays with you after the wedding day is over…is how you feel about your new spouse. Your relationship will not change with a wedding day, but if you’re as lucky as these two, it’s perfect just the way it is!

This was such a fun day and this couple was wonderful to work with. I feel so lucky to have been able to photograph their wedding day.

Happy.

If there was one word to describe this day, it would be the word “happy”. 

Jennifer and Paul were married at St. Paul Catholic Church in Valparaiso, Indiana and had their reception at Sand Creek Country Club in Chesterton. Even through the rain, Jennifer and Paul had a beautiful wedding day. The bride and groom were so excited….so alive with anticipation….which, as you can see, makes for some REALLY gorgeous pictures. I know for these two, this day was only the start of their happily ever after.

This sweet couple was married last August and had their reception at the Youche Country Club in Crown Point. Joel and Carli beamed from ear to ear the whole day. SO excited to become husband and wife…so excited to take this step. 

They had a beautiful wedding filled with personal touches. The art that adorned the walls of the reception hall was painted by the bride! How cool is that?! 

What made this wedding so special, though, was the amazing support of their family and friends. Everyone happy, smiling, and so glad to share in Joel and Carli’s special day…it’s what every wedding should be like!

Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, IL is such a fun place for engagement photos! There are so many different locations to choose from and each one is so different. Venturing out into the city makes it even more exciting…

This sweet couple was great to work with! Tiffany and Mark were so much fun—I hope you enjoy looking at their beautiful pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them!

Brad and Katie were married in the Chapel of the Resurrection at Valparaiso University and had their Reception at Strongbow in in Valparaiso, Indiana (which is now under a new name: The Market). It was a perfect fall day…crisp weather, but not too cold. So very different from their beautiful winter engagement photos, but lovely just the same. We could feel the leaves crunching under our feet as we walked to our photo locations. It was a perfect day for a wedding and this couple was so sweet. 

Happy.

Nervous.

Excited.

“I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart).”

Jessica and Mark were married and had their reception at The Lighthouse in Cedar Lake, Indiana. Watching the excitement and anticipation of this day made the chilly weather just a little warmer. The way Jessica’s eyes lit up when she talked about Mark was something truly special and I felt so lucky to be around a love like theirs. That being said, I really feel like the pictures say it better than I ever could!

You are the sun in my day, the wind in my sky, the waves in my ocean, and the beat in my heart.

This post is way overdue, but I had to share with you the beauty of this wedding day. Stephanie & Pedro were married and had their reception at The Allure in LaPorte, Indiana. It was a day filled with so much love and so much happiness. You could tell just by standing next to them that Stephanie and Pedro had waited for this day for a long time. The joy they felt was absolutely contagious. There was so much care and effort put into the tiniest details throughout the day. It really made this wedding special. I was honored to be there.

So I love this venue! The Red Barn Experience is so much fun and unique! I was so excited for this wedding because not only did I fall in love with Dan and Elizabeth at their engagement shoot but one of my former brides styled this gorgeous wedding. Lindsay Weik you did an amazing job on all the details! My favorites were the lights and branches hanging from the ceiling! I am going to be short on words because I want to get this sneak peek up and running for the bride and groom to see! You don’t need a lot of words when you see all the gorgeous! Thank you Stephanie for being an amazing second photographer and making me laugh through it all!

I was so excited to be a part of this wedding!  Two reasons…I really enjoy this family a lot and I was very excited to shoot at The Brick!

I was in love with Alyssa and Matthew’s engagement photos so I could not wait to get my camera on them for the wedding!

I loved every single detail of this wedding…the colors, the dresses, the flowers, and the centerpieces.

I really could have just died!

This will probably be picture overload…

I can’t help myself…

I meet a lot of people…told so many names….I can’t keep it all in my brain…I embarrass myself all the time.  I know I have met people, looked at their faces…probably even photographed them…I am not supposed to remember everything….right?  I have four kids…I will admit mixing up when soccer practice is over and forgotten to pick up the dry cleaning a couple of times.  My kids are used to it..my husband has even started to find it endearing…I love to be with people so I schedule diner or lunch and realize that I scheduled maybe three things already at the same time.  I have used the calendar on my phone…I bought a fancy planner hoping that it would help.  The problem is I have to actually look at it to stay on task…Big sigh….My fellow partner in crime Stephanie has offered to take on more responsibility so that I can do what I love to do…take photographs of people and the ones they love.  I want to take things off my plate so that the people I meet I never forget because we have had a true genuine connection.  I might not remember their name but I will never forget how I felt with them or them with me.

The one thing I remember for sure about Brittany is that I met with her and her sister at Black Bird Cafe in valparaiso, at a little table in the back and when I left I told my husband..who came with me…I could be friends with the two of them..real friends…I laughed so much, and it made me truly excited to be able to be a part of their day..I told Katrina that second shot this beautiful wedding….You are going to love them! Katrina is an amazing second photographer…thank you for always doing such a wonderful job.  I was not disappointed…the wedding day was full of love, connections and beautiful ladies and gentlemen!

Their wedding was at Signature Banquets in Lowell, Indiana.  Then we went to the perfect spot to take pictures of the bridal party and the beautiful bride and groom.  Brittany and Brendan your pictures are on their way..I hope you enjoy this little preview of your day!  Thank you again!

DSC_473625Brittany and Brendan11DSC_1222Brittany and Brendan8Brittany and Brendan9Brittany and Brendan67Brittany and Brendan23Brittany and BrendanBrittany and BrendanBrittany and Brendan10I want to say something about the following picture.   Before everyone walks down the aisle I say please look up and look at me or smile at the people around you…I think everyone is afraid of falling or making a stupid face…but this bridesmaid nailed it!!!!  Such a gorgeous smile…she might not have been smiling at me…maybe someone behind me but it makes all the difference in the world!  I loved it!

So I wanted to post this Chicago engagement session with Brian and Alex but I can’t help share a little bit of this past weekend with my family.  We ventured down to Brown County and went on a three hour adventure zipline tour!  We stayed in a AIRBNB and explored some of the towns in the area! It was just what I needed after a busy season!  The weather was perfect and our time was so relaxing!

DSC_158267DSC_15626564DSC_150569Here we are playing a little Jenga and then we decided to stay there for about an hour and build the largest one we could until Jaden made the final error!  The next picture is the crowd that gathered to watch us build it.  Needless to say it was a lot of pressure that Jaden was under!  There was one woman video taping it and the owner of the restaurant put it on his webpage.  So we are kinda famous!  Who knew we would finally find our sport.  Jaden has to actually stand on a table to be able to reach the top.  I also have to comment that they both have pretty good hair!

Now to show these two’s gorgeous engagement photos!  I could not be any luckier than to be able to shoot their wedding next fall!  I know it will be perfect!

images_1774images_17232images_1811images_16414images_1666images_1587images_1505images_157images_1688images_1129images_13210images_13511images_134

Being a wedding photographer is this crazy roller coaster of a ride.  Some days it is so amazing and everything runs smoothly and everyone loves me..Then there are other days where I doubt my abilities and being a people pleaser desperately hope that I haven’t stressed anyone out and they love their photographs.  I don’t think there is a profession that you don’t have your really good days and really bad ones.

Well today is a wonderful day.  Today I feel like the brides and grooms that are on my calendar for 2016 are amazing.  I do a little happy dance when someone books me and I get the chance to document their day.

I love Adele’s new song..

I bought some new boots.

My little family and I are going on a little vacation to Brown County to do some zip lining…

These two are on the blog and I love their fall photos.  I mean my business name is Forever October Photography so needless to say I love October and all the colors and pumpkins that come with it.

Their wedding is next August at County Line Orchard and I don’t even care if it might be a little hot…that is how excited I am!

DSC_820819DSC_81452DSC_811963DSC_8131510DSC_811548DSC_80747DSC_80211211DSC_7983131614

The day was perfect except for the wind..I take that back….the day was perfect, even the wind made magic happen.

I might have a slight crush on both of these two.  I couldn’t have asked for two more in love and perfect in front of the camera.

The fall light was golden and the changing breathe in the air made you want to sit and stay and lay on a blanket under the changing leaves.

I love going to Chicago.  The change of rythmn for me is inspiring.

Needless to say I love these!  I cannot wait to shoot this wedding!

Thank you for choosing me to be there and the chance to do this all over again…just with a magical dress!

I really do think the girls get a little more mature and gorgeous every year!  Victoria is no exception.  She has such a confidence that I never had at her age, I was still worried about who I sat by at lunch and if I was going to ever go out on a date…before I turned 90.  I loved her outfits and her eyes were spectacular.  I just love everything about this day….Look at her hair!  Amazing!

This is how I see love….

Hold my hand and make a promise….

a promise to keep me warm and safe…

a promise to know you could ruin me but would never want to…

a promise that my life means as much to you as your own…

a promise that we will take each others hand and walk into the future…

full of excitement of what there is to come and joy that we have each other to share it with.

Lindsay _117Lindsay and Kyle were recently married at Sandy Pines Pavillion.  What a beautiful venue and what a perfect, beautiful day.  I wanted to get this sneak peek up so that Lindsay and Kyle could see a few of their pictures that document their amazing day! Krissy VanderWoude did her make and I just love it to pieces!  I loved having Katherine Murray today to shoot this wedding with me..it was so much fun…we laugh like crazy!  These pictures are a combination of her and I…

Full of babies and adventures yet to come…

Every day should be like this one….

where you wake up with such excitement that your eyes shine and your cheeks hurt from the smiles….

and now and forever you know that even when hard times come you will hold each others hands and stand together…

Every moment should be like this one…

breathe and enjoy

because….

if you can remember it…

The way you feel, the way you make each other feel can last forever.

Stephanie and Dino are some of my favorite friends.  Stephanie was my little one’s second grade teacher and even though she was intimidating with her gorgeousness…we became easy friends when we realized we shared the love of photography…and now a couple of years later she is one of my second photographers and someone I have grown to love.  So I was super excited that I got to be a part of her wedding day but also very stressed because I wanted everything to turn out perfect!  Katrina was my second photographer and my cute husband assisted me this day.  It was a whirl wind kind of day but just like I said before I wish for everyone that their weddings were filled with so much love, and laughter and joy!  I am posting a lot of pictures and I could have put so much more but I had to stop somewhere..

Thank you…for letting me be there and share this day with you both.
