I don’t know why it has taken me so long to post these pictures.  I love them!  I love this adorable couple!  I cannot wait for their wedding in June!

Diana and Anthony are getting married at Aberdeen Manor in Valparaiso, Indiana.  I love weddings at Aberdeen…I might be biased because it is around the corner from where I live!  That really helps!  I also love weddings in the garden.  It is just a great location!

These two on their engagement picture day were just perfect!  Her makeup was perfect by the way…I can’t get enough of it. I loved the motorcycle and the little bit of edge it brought out to Hamstra gardens where we took their engagements.  Of course I love it there.  With the backdrop of the gardens and the easy feel these two had between them…made my afternoon a piece of cake!

Adam and Olivia are getting married in a little under two months.  I have to say I cannot wait!  They have picked a perfect location in the Patrick Haley Mansion for a spring wedding.  I had the privilege of shooting their engagement photos back in the summer and these two needless to say are perfect for one another.  I like when a couple is comfortable in each others arms, like it is where they belong. You will see why I can’t wait to photograph their wedding!

Thank you the two of you for being so amazing to work with.  We loved every single minute of it.  Thank you for choosing me to be your wedding photographer,  I cannot wait!

So these two beautiful people got married in January!  On one of those days where to even go outside you thought your fingers were going to fall off!  Needless to say that we did not take any outside photographs!  I was starting to edit their photos and I realized that I have never shared their engagement photos of when it was really warm outside!  So I am sharing them now and a couple of wedding photos that I have come across while editing!

We started off by taking a few of them with their little boy!  He was about the cutest thing ever!

 

I love when it comes full circle!  Anna and Jonathan have been my favorites to photograph.  I love their style and friendliness!  I took their engagements and wedding and now their maternity and when their little on came home.  I have loved every minute of it and hope to capture their family memories for a lot of years to come! I absolutely adore their home and Jonathan is an auctioneer so they always have unique finds!

 

Here is the little one just a couple of days old and he is absolutely perfect!

I love getting ready pictures and all the details.  I cannot get enough…. I spend some time making sure that everything is documented…a bride will have her pictures in 20 or 30 years but she won’t have her shoes, and her jewelry or her flowers.  So in this blog post I have on purpose put in a lot of the detail pictures and the bride getting ready and her portraits.  Kayla gave me a lot of time to capture this part of the day.  I absolutely love all the bridal portraits…but without scheduling this time during the day it can feel rushed…so with all my potential brides I make sure to help them schedule this time in their day and let them know that in their getting ready location one source of natural light can really make all the difference!

So Kayla and Jim got married at White Hawk West Country Club.  For a wedding in October I was so surprised how cold and windy it was.  It made outdoor picture taking almost impossible.  Of course they were willing to go outside but my main focus of the day is that you don’t feel miserable!

Kayla was such a beautiful bride that it was hard for me to stop taking her bridal portraits…

 

My second shooter Chris Zibutis from Christopher Z Photography did an amazing job on the boys getting ready pictures and did so many great dramatic pictures using lights.  Couldn’t have asked for anything better!

We then were off for the first look….which I love doing by the way!  It really just gives the bride and groom just a few moments to take it all in!

Some more portraits and some group shots!  Their bridal party was a hoot!

These next two shots were taking by Chris being so amazing when we couldn’t go outside!Again Chris!Then off to a beautiful ceremony and an amazing reception!
