Stacey & Jonathan | Franklin, TN Engagement Session

In just a few weeks we’ll kick off our 2017 wedding season with this sweet couple’s big day in Franklin, TN, just outside of Nashville! We are thrilled to be a part of their wedding and are looking forward to the festivities! Also, I love that Harley, their golden retriever, will be coming along on the day-of. He’ll be wearing a bow tie then, too, because how can a dog not wear a bow tie to a wedding in the south?

Romantic Styled Shoot with Violet Vintage & Isibeal Stuido

We love every ounce of this deep, rich, and romantic styled shoot we did with Violet Vintage and Isibeal Stuido last year at the Allison Mansion in Indianapolis. It was wonderful to have a small, intimate group of ladies working together to simply enjoy enjoy our craft. Working with these two is a dream. We love having them as a part of vendor teams on wedding days and getting this extra time with them for a “just for fun” shoot was so special. As artists, we sometimes need that time to collaborate together, to work slowly and at our own pace, and create a vision of inspiration outside of wedding days to just press that reset button. A simple refresher like this is very welcomed & appreciated.                                                                                                                              Indianapolis, Indiana

Lauren & Ron | Indianapolis Wedding

It may have been extremely cold & blustery on their big day, but you would never know it from the joy and warmth of this couple. Lauren and Ron have been together for years and years, so this day was extra special because of the life they had lived together leading up to this day. They’d accomplished so much together and this was just an additional way to celebrate their commitment to one another with all their loved ones. We couldn’t have loved spending the day with these two any more. We are beyond thrilled for you two, Lauren & Ron! indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1926indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1927indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1928indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1929indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1930indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1931indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1932indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1933indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1934indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1935indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1936indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1937indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1938indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1939indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1940indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1941indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1942indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1943indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1944indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1945indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1991indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1946indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1947indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1948indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1949indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1950indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1951indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1952indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1953indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1954indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1955indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1956indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1957indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1958indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1959indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1960indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1961indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1962indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1963indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1964indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1965indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1966indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1967indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1968indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1969indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1970indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1971indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1972indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1973indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1974indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1975indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1976indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1977indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1978indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1979indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1980indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1981indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1982indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1983indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1984indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1985indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1986indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1987indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1988indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1989indianapolis-wedding-photographers_1990

Brandi & Adam | Indianapolis Engagement Session

In case you missed it, we took a few photos of Adam & Brandi on our Michigan vacation last summer. You can see a few of those here! This is part two of their session. They’re getting married this Fall and wanted to do some Fall photos last year for their save-the-dates and such. We chose Holiday Park in Broad Ripple and then went back to their house for a few photos at their first home they share together. It’s actually where they first met, too! Brandi had just moved into the house with her friend, Caitlen, and she introduced Brandi to Adam one evening when Adam came over to help do some painting. Since then, Caitlen moved and Adam took her place. Now, they live together where they first met. How sweet of a story is that!? While I photographed their engagement session, my dear friend Sami from Sami Renee Photography will be doing their wedding! I’ll be in the wedding and am really looking forward to spending the day celebrating these two without being behind the camera! Congratulations, Brandi & Adam. We love you!

Barry Paffey - So great and beautiful engagement images.

Brandi & Adam | Saugatuck, MI Engagement Session

A short and sweet blog post to introduce you all to Brandi & Adam. Brandi has been my best friend since we were tiny – since we were 4 years old I believe. Maybe 5. We lived just down the road from each other and became instant friends who did everything together. For the sake of all the pregnancy hormones and the fact that I will be giving a speech at her wedding, I’ll spare you all the emotional details, silly stories, and embarrassing things we’ve done in the past 24 or so years. 😉 Instead, I’ll simply share that growing up we used to go to Saugatuck, Michigan in the summers with her family. In the summer of 2016, Brandi, Adam, James and I went. We had an absolute blast and even found time to sneak in a few engagement pictures on our way to dinner one night. Part two of their engagement session (in Indy) will hit the blog soon!
