Cara & Clay were married April 27th 20113, and they obviously had Ann and I there to photograph their Indianapolis Omni Wedding.  We got started early in the morning with hair and makeup for the girls upstairs in one of the bridal suites at the Omni Hotel.  As wedding photographers, we have some of the best jobs, we get to see our clients on their best day, when all their friends and family are there to support them.  While hair and make-up is getting done there are always great stories being told between the bride and groom and their closest friends, we get to hear all this and really get to see who people are.  This has never been so apparent to me than while photographing Clay and his groomsmen getting ready and hanging out before the wedding.  The guys were all hanging out in a conference room getting their tuxes on, and the conversation turned to how each of the groomsmen met Clay.  Eventually the conversation turned to Clay talking about why he chose each of his friends as a groomsmen, and being really open and honest about how he feels about each of them.  I could really tell who Clay was as a person from this interaction with his friends.  While this was going on downstairs, Ann told me about some great conversation going on upstairs with the girls.  This side of people is one of the big reasons why I love photographing weddings, getting to know people on one of their best days!  Back on topic now…Clay and Cara chose to have both their wedding and reception at the Omni Hotel in Indianapolis, which made the day super smooth, we didn’t have to leave or travel anywhere!  During the wedding ceremony, their were several moments where their pastor said something that really resonated with me, it was one of the most personal and moving wedding ceremony’s I have attended since my own.  The dinner was amazing, and the speeches that followed didn’t disappoint either, both the Best Man and the Man of Honor (you read that correct, Cara’s brother was her Man of Honor) had great things to say about the couple and each person individually, there was alot of love in the room!  The reception got kicked off with some great dancing and lasted all night long, the dance floor was packed all night.  Ann and I had so much fun capturing so many great moments from father daughter dances, to guests getting into a dance circle with a toddler.  I hope you all enjoy the photos and moments that we captured from Cara & Clays Indianapolis Omni Wedding.

Brandon and Erin were married on April 20th, 2013 at the Edinburgh Henry Breeding farm.  The Henry Breeding Farm is a really cool rustic barn that sits on tons of land just outside of Edinburgh   The barn its self is on the Historic Registry list, and once you set foot inside, you see why, its gorgeous!  I never knew this place existed, and was thrilled when Brandon and Erin asked Ann and I to be their wedding photographers!  Our day started off at a local hotel where everyone got their hair and make-up done, and dressed in their wedding attire.  The remainder of the day was spent out at the barn.  The Henry Breeding farm was beautifully decorated by the ladies from Embellished Events It was a crisp April day with bright blue skies and puffy white clouds  the kind that photograph really well.  The ceremony was held in the center of the barn with all Brandon & Erin’s friends and family close by.  Brandon & Erin wrote their own separate vows that ended up sounding almost identical, and the most touching moment of the wedding came when to Erin’s two small children, to be more than just a step-dad.   After the ceremony was over, the bridal party wandered around the grounds of the Henry Breeding Farm with me for awhile advantage of all the great photographic spots.  Once back inside the part was non stop until the wee hours of the night.  We did manage to sneak a few sunset photos of the newlyweds too!

Congrats Brandon & Erin!

Meet Keith, a member of the class of 2013!  Recently I was invited out to Keith’s home out near Greencastle to shoot his senior portraits.  His family has lots of land, including a pond and a scenic windmill that Keith himself built!  When not busy with school work, Keith enjoys riding and racing his 4-wheeler, so we had to get some photos with it, including some action photos on the trails out behind the house!  Thanks for having me out Keith, I love an opportunity to create some senior photos that are truly unique!  Contact me to set up your unique senior portrait session now!

Meet Chris, a high school senior from the Indiana Academy High School at Ball State University.  He came to the studio back in March for some senior pictures, we also braved some of the brisk (nice word for really cold) weather to shoot a few images on the canal in downtown Indianapolis, that is conveniently right across the street from my Stutz building studio space!

Chris and Kaddi were married on April 13th, 2013 in Greencastle,  Ann and I were thrilled to be there as their photographers to capture all the special moments that happened that day.  We started off bright and early at Salon D’va in Avon for some hair appointments.  After the girls had their hair sprayed in place we were on the road for a quick drive west towards Greencastle Christian Church where the couple would be wed.  Before the wedding once everyone was dressed, we headed over to the campus of Depauw University for some hair wedding dress photos bridal hair & make up bride getting ready bridesmaid photos greencastle groomsmen photos Greencastle wedding photographer Greencastle wedding photographer

Kaddi asked the pastor of the church if I could stand behind the alter for the first kiss, this is pretty unusual, I have never done it before, but it made for a fantastic photo!  I am so glad she asked!
