Yearly Archives: 2013

Here we are – the end of the wedding season for us. It was a perfect cool November day and an amazing wedding. I love photographing weddings in Teutopolis. The church is absolutely beautiful and there is so much available just around the block for picture opportunities. I told Jackie that we were wanting to…

Time goes by way too fast!! It seems like it was just yesterday we were doing Kelly and Keli’s engagement session! This was also the first wedding I had shot by myself in about 1.5-2 years – so it definitely took me back to my early days when I did everything myself. It was kind…

Aw, winter engagement sessions – they can be a tricky thing, especially in the midwest. You can count on snow to happen, so when we scheduled Stephanie and Devin’s engagement session we had no idea that we would have a nice layer of fresh snow (and ice!), but thankfully we did, and thankfully the roads…

I’ve said it before, but the thing I love about kid photography is letting the kids just be kids and photograph them in their natural state. No cheesy poses, no pinterest/child model/impossible set ups for pictures (you know the kind I’m talking about if you’ve spent just 5 minutes on pinterest) – just fun pictures…

When Tiffany contacted me in regards to her senior session, I looked at my schedule for a Saturday that she wanted and I had a shoot in the morning and a shoot in the evening already booked on top of a commercial session mixed in somewhere during that day. Thankfully she was wanting her pictures…

It’s always fund to get something a little off the wall, something to break down the way shoots typically go, and Hailey did just that. Hailey wanted to have some of her pictures in her dance studio, and of course I did not know what to expect until I got there. I was looking around…

Fall was in full effect for Meredith and Garrett’s engagement session. The colors were as bright as could be. The temperature was just cool enough to require a jacket, and a slight breeze. Of course, during this time of year, schedules get JAM PACKED!! And this fall has been one of the busiest falls for…

Have I mentioned before how many times I love fall weddings? I realize I have but I’m going to say it again – I love fall weddings!! 🙂 And I absolutely love fun wedding parties. Fortunately we had both during Karla and Caleb’s wedding. From the start it was nothing but laughter and good times….

It doesn’t seem like that long ago, but it was two years ago that I had Bailey’s senior pictures – Adam’s sister. It’s awesome being able to revisit places like a family farm with 2 years in between. Because it doesn’t feel that long ago that we were doing Bailey’s session, but yet it was…

This is the second time I’ve been back to the church Natasha and I got married in and the first time that she has been with me to photograph a wedding there. It’s kind of cool being back and being able to see a wedding happen there because it’s kind of like we get to…

I know, I know – I’m starting to sound like a broken record by this point, but I absolutely love fall. The morning of Sarah and Jeremiah’s engagement session it was pretty cloudy and gloomy and I was actually beginning to get upset thinking we wouldn’t have the bright oranges, reds and yellows. With the…

This had to be one of the most confusing weddings I’ve ever shot – and I don’t mean the wedding day itself, but the time zones. Maybe I’ve not looked a time zone map very carefully but I’ve always assumed that all of Indiana was eastern time zone, so being in central time zone I…

Doing senior sessions for guys rock! Why? I can do things with the pictures that I can’t with girls. I know I’ve said this in the past (oh well), but with senior girls I tend to do more of a soft edit, it just make sense right? Girls have the soft glow edits and guys…

Summer weddings seem to sneak up on you so quickly, especially after we do the engagement session! What should have felt like a few months felt more like a few days between Dave and Kelsey’s engagement session and wedding. Oh well, though, I won’t complain too much – I LOVE WEDDINGS!  Wedding days always bring…

Senior sessions, these just keep getting more and more enjoyable, and interesting (you’ll find out why in a second). I absolutely love working with seniors, it’s a chance to take a break from the craziness of a wedding and allows me to have a chance to work with just one person and I definitely try…

I absolutely love outdoor weddings, and this year has been an amazing year for them. I think over half our weddings this year have/will be outside. We have had a few miserable weeks for the heat, but it’s honestly not been too bad this summer. Amber and Brad caught kind of the tail end of…

I LOVE sessions that take place in Shelbyville. I’m sure I’ve mentioned this many times before, but whatever – it’s that awesome. Many small towns in this are offer great picture opportunities. Sadly it’s because many small towns are failing or don’t have much for finances so buildings wear down over time, metal rusts, etc….

Fun little back story of how I met Jen. It was some time ago, I’m terrible with how quickly years go by, but I want to say it was probably 3-4 years ago now. We played on the same volleyball team for a rec league. And I remember even then, as we just met she…

It seems like just yesterday I was in Colorado for an engagement session, and just a few short days later I’m traveling to southern Indiana for an engagement shoot. I’m not going to lie, I LOVE traveling for sessions. There’s just something awesome about getting out and seeing new locations, and going into a shoot…

Hope’s session allowed me to revisit a location that I hadn’t been to in a while; actually a couple locations. The first location was a farm that I did for her sister’s engagement pictures, so it was great having a chance to look at it not through engagement photography eyes, but senior photography, the way…
