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 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!
