You believe in your story. I surrender to it. Capture it. And hand it back to you in a way you can remember forever.

You're about to embark on the most wonderful of adventures. Because you're here that tells me you value epic, mind-blowing photography. Well done!

I'm fortunate, and sometimes I have to pinch myself when I think about how much I love what I do. I illustrate every story you trust me with.

Incredible photographs result from a trusted relationship between us. This comes from a friendship, and from time invested in getting to know you, and why you have chosen the different elements that will make up your wedding day. Think of me as a visual biographer of sorts, a narrator, telling your story through the images of your day.

I want you to be blown away by how beautiful you really are, by how beautiful I see you to be.

Lets get started!

+ you are beautiful

Indianapolis photography workshop :: Engagement photography

by April 26th, 2016 No Comments »

Her long, red hair danced in the air as she gave us a very animated presentation. Indianapolis photographer Bobbi Sheridan led our group with tips, tricks, empathy, and encouragement. Picture it in your mind. A handful or two of newbie and seasoned photographers sitting together talking industry/photographic speak and sharing stories. What could be better? I know, it must sound weird to you.  But for me, there’s nothing better.

I’ll put myself in the bracket of being “seasoned”. I think I’ve earned that adjective. But there is always, always something new to learn from someone.  So, we trudged off to downtown Indianapolis and followed Bobbi around like ducklings following their mother.  Bobbi had arranged an engaged couple to be our models for the afternoon. Enter Leigh Ann and Andre. An adorable couple who are getting married soon. We walked from location to location in downtown Indianapolis trying out different backgrounds, different lighting scenarios, and different poses.  Some ideas worked. Others didn’t. Some situations were flat out frustrating. But that’s life. And it’s always fun to experiment when there’s nothing at stake.

Thank you Bobbi, for sharing your secrets and inviting inspiring guest speakers. I walked away being reminded that the life of a photographer is not an easy one, but one I would never trade!


This is one of my favorites. Andre has an award-winning smile.
