Lauren & Brian | D’Amore Wedding | Indianapolis Wedding Photographers

Lauren and Brian are two of the sweetest, most calm, laid-back people you could ever meet. They’re just lovely to be around and are so easy to talk to. Celebrating their marriage with them was such a joy and we are so glad we were able to be a part of their day. Leading up to Saturday, the forecast called for 100% chance of rain basically all day. It was by far the worst forecast we’ve seen as far as wedding days go. It’s rained on plenty of wedding days since we’ve been photographers (and even our own day), but never has it rained literally all day. So, we came up with a solid backup plan. But, just an hour of so before their first look, it cleared up. The sun started shining and the ground was drying. It was a dream! We were able to carry on with our as-scheduled outdoor portraits and it turned out perfectly! 

After a trip to the Indiana Statehouse for photos, we settled in at D’Amore (one of our favorite venues!) for the ceremony and reception. With Boldy Chic Events planning the day + Lauren and her family’s beautiful vision, D’Amore looked stunning and it was everything Lauren wanted. Exactly how it should be! We were thrilled to work with Lauren & Brian, meet their families, and create the first heirlooms of their marriage – their wedding photographs. Thanks for having us, Lauren & Brian!

Cari & Chas | Baby Carter On the Way

We photographed Cari & Chas’ Mustard Seed Gardens wedding in December of 2015 and loved these two from the start. Such a sweet couple with a wonderful tribe of family and friends. We couldn’t be happier for them to welcome a sweet little one into their lives at the end of June! We are thrilled for them + it’s so fun to be pregnant alongside quite a few of our brides. It makes it so fun and special. I love seeing their families grow! Cari & Chas were home recently for a baby shower and we were able to grab a quick maternity session before the headed back to Minnesota. Plus, Lilly came along, which was just the best. 🙂 She was happy to pose and smile as long as I tossed a treat her way afterwards!

Taylor & Josh | ENGAGED | Indianapolis Wedding Photographers

Taylor, Josh, and I (Emily) actually all grew up in the same neighborhood very close to each other! Josh’s mom was one of James’ teachers in middle school, too. Such a small world. I remember the days of Josh playing in our back yard with us on our swing set and evenings spent at the ball diamond with Taylor as our brothers played baseball together. And now, they’ve bought an adorable house together, just brought little Rory home a couple of weeks ago, and are getting married in November! The wedding will be so much fun – there are so many mutual family friends who will all be there to celebrate these two and it’ll be a blast. We are excited to be a part of this special time in their lives and can’t wait to witness these two become husband and wife! 

We started their session at home because they have such a cute front porch and of course we had to include little Rory! I LOVE photographing couples at their first home together – it will be so fun for them to look back on years and years from now. And, Rory will be growing QUICKLY, so having some little puppy photos is just the sweetest.  We then headed to Downtown Fishers which is one of my favorite spots for sessions. It was such a pretty evening! Thank goodness Spring is here!

Stacey & Jonathan | Carnton Plantation Destination Wedding – Franklin, TN

We kicked off our 2017 wedding season with this GORGEOUS southern wedding last weekend! We lucked out with the most beautiful Tennessee Spring day that was perfect for an outdoor soirée.  Every detail was thought of, the weather was perfect, and the guests were happy. It was an all-around perfect wedding for these two and we couldn’t be happier for them. From the seersucker suits to the pink bowties, from the custom made crest that adorned their invitations, welcome bags, and even pillows to their sweet dog, Harley making an appearance, you’ll notice that nothing was left untouched. It was the day Stacey dreamed about and we couldn’t have been more honored to be there to photograph it all. Thank you so much for having us, Stacey & Jonathan! Cheers to The Senns!
