Downtown Canal | Indianapolis Engagement | Anna & Mike

Anna, Mike, and I had the best time meandering around the downtown canal to take their engagement pictures.  There was a lot of singing, laughter, and avoidance of a rouge goose, and it made for the perfect evening.  They were also SO patient with me, as I kept stopping their session to chase down and pet every puppy* that walked past us!  

Here are a few of my favorite images from their session!  I'm so looking forward to shooting their wedding at the Central Library this fall!  :)

*All nice dogs are puppies, regardless of age.  

St. Roch & Skyline Club | Indianapolis Wedding | Lindsey & Chris

What can I even say about this wedding?  Lindsey and Chris planned a day that can only be described as ... AMAZING.

We started the day at St. Roch, which is one of my favorite Catholic churches in Indy.  ("Why?", you ask.  Baller light.)  We also had several hours (thank you!) to meander around downtown Indy and take portraits of the wedding party before finishing out the day with a perfect reception at the Skyline Club.

Lindsey, Chris, and the entire wedding party were full of antics and gave off such good energy during their photos; I hope it shows in these images.  I love when wedding days get a little goofy!

St. Roch <3

(Lindsey's grandmother used to grow blue hydrangeas - in her grandmother's memory, Lindsey had blue hydrangeas scattered throughout her day - on robes for the bridesmaids, on her invitation suite, and in all her florals!  I loved this so much!)

Chris started bawling before he even saw Lindsey.  I love when men cry on their wedding day.  <3

...and Lindsey couldn't stop beaming.  :)

Columbia Club | Indianapolis Wedding | Kate & John

Kate and John are two of the loveliest humans I've ever met (even if they are a little quiet.  I don't think John said more than 10 words out loud on his wedding day), and I'm always thrilled when lovely people get the best wedding day.  :) 

Their wedding took place at the Columbia Club in Indianapolis, where Kate's parents are members.  We took their wedding party portraits on Monument Circle downtown, and were joined by a couple of dinosaurs out dancing around.  One of the best parts of the evening was when Kate and John came out of their shells and got lifted up for the hora!  Even AJ (their planner) got in on the fun and helped lift the chairs!  

Check out some of my favorite images below!

Kate's parent's tearing up during Kate & John's first look.  It made me want to cry, too!

Everyone at the wedding got together for a picture!  Love it!

Last photo of the night.  Swoon!

St. John's & Sanctuary on Penn | Indianapolis Wedding | Kayla & John

One of the most unique weddings I photographed in 2016 was the wedding of Kayla and Ryan.  They were married in a beautiful traditional Catholic service at St. John's, and then had a super non-traditional reception at the Sanctuary on Penn.  The reception was cocktail style:  no formal seating arrangements, pub tables and food stations, and dancing all night long!  

Check out some of my favorites below (including one of the most beautiful dresses of the year)!  

I.  LOVE.  THIS.  DRESS.

The Conrad | Indianapolis Wedding | Kyndel & Mandy

Theeeeese two.  Kyndel and Mandy planned THE.BEST.DAY.  

Their wedding was held at The Conrad Indianapolis, and we spent lots of time wandering around downtown with them and their rad bridal party.  Mandy even had a firetruck brought over from her station so we could get some pictures in front of it, as well!  :)

Without further ado ... some faves.  

The White Room | St. Augustine Wedding | Melissa & Scott

Melissa and I have been friends for years and years and years (since way back when I lived in Florida) and I am so happy that I got the opportunity to photograph her and Scott on their wedding day in St. Augustine, FL.  These two could not be more perfect for each other.  :)

Their wedding was held at The White Room, which is probably one of the most stunning venues I've seen; so bright and white and full of natural light.  Le swoooon.  

Here are a few of my favorite images from their day.  :)

The Conrad | Indianapolis Wedding | Amanda & Brian

I kicked off my 2016 wedding season with Amanda & Brian and WHAT A KICKOFF IT WAS!  Amanda is the absolute sweetest, and Brian will forever be James Bond in my mind (the Daniel Craig version, obvs.)  Here are a few* of my favorite images from their awesome day at the Conrad in downtown Indy.  

*Few, in this case, is subjective - I couldn't narrow these down any further.  <3
