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

Wedding Ring History

by January 15th, 2018 No Comments »

It’s the season of proposals! Everyone hopes their wedding will have elements of uniqueness, but when it gets right down to it, some of the traditions we honor have been around for centuries. And many times during wedding planning we don’t often ask ourselves “why” we’re incorporating something. Wedding ceremonies, garments and symbols come from ancient human motivations. Take the engagement and wedding ring for instance.The history of both involves ideas of women’s status, men’s behavior, cultural priorities and religious dogma. Hold on to your hats. You may or may not appreciate what’s to come. As a self-professed feminist, I’m wavering myself. Some historians believe that the first wedding ring was lengths of grass tied to a woman’s finger in symbolic memory of the cords used to bind her hands and feet after a man captured her. Rings denoted ownership in ancient Egypt and Rome. The Celts braided hair for rings.

The Egyptians and Romans believed that the third finger of the left hand was connected to the vena amoris that led directly to the heart, so they wore wedding rings on that finger. The circle was the symbol of eternity. The hole in the center of the ring was considered a gateway leading to things known and unknown.

In the 12th century, it was decreed by Pope Innocent III that all weddings must take place in the church, and include a wedding ring for the bride. He also declared a long waiting period between engagement and marriage, which led to a run on engagement rings. While aristocracy loved using gemstones, it took several hundred years before the first recorded diamond engagement ring, given in 1477. While diamonds were one of the many stones used for engagement rings, a DeBeers Diamond Mines advertising campaign began in the mid 20th century, A Diamond is Forever, pushed the diamond forward as the engagement ring stone.

While I love a gorgeous diamond as much as any other girl, I also love the idea of not feeling tied to a particular kind of stone. And I especially love the idea of being a conscientious consumer of the diamond industry. What do I mean? Take the ring in the top row, in the middle. This bride made a decision to make sure that her the stones in her ring were ethically obtained. (Blood diamonds, also called conflict diamonds, war diamonds, hot diamonds, or red diamonds, is a term used for a diamond mined in a war zone and sold to finance an insurgency, an invading army’s war efforts, or a warlord’s activity.)

Your ring is unique to you. Make sure it reflects who you are, and what you believe in. “A circle has no beginning or end and is therefore a symbol of infinity. It is endless,eternal, just the way love should be.”  And that is what really matters.

Ohio Wedding Photography, Lost Creek Memory Barn

by December 27th, 2017 2 Comments »

I was driving through country roads with luminous, dark clouds hovering above me. On my way to photograph a Casstown, Ohio wedding, I was hoping the rain would hold off for a few hours. Kayla and Grant had been planning a beautiful, outdoor, boho wedding at the Lost Creek Memory Barn.

We scampered to pack in as much outdoor wedding photography before the skies opened up, including their first look. And it was during this loving moment I had a flash of gratitude run through me. Rain momentarily forgotten, the emotion Grant displayed at seeing his wife-to-be, and the calming compassion Kayla had for Grant as she tied his bow tie made me realized how lucky I’ve been to witness so many emotion-filled first look moments between couples. And this one I won’t forget.

Kayla and Grant both attend IUPUI and work at the West Indy Racquet Club. Very fitting since it was the game of tennis that brought them together in the first place. Read on to find out what part of the wedding day was their favorite and why, along with some great advice to those out there who might be recently engaged.

What do you love about the other person?

KAYLA

I. Grant always finds a way to make time for our relationship. He likes to propose nosebleed tickets to Pacer’s games or will simply take me on long romantic walks to the grocery. He believes there is always time for us.

II. Grant is always bettering himself in so many ways. Sometimes, he will get so passionate about a reading or a podcast. It’s all he can talk about for the rest of the day. His drive is infectious and motivates me, too.

III. Daily routines are never boring with him. He is constantly giving me a reason to laugh and appreciate life. 

GRANT

There are so many things I find endearing about Kayla, but my three favorites include her constant pursuit of my heart, her sweet, loving nature and her love for those around her. Kayla’s loving nature might just be her best trait. She gives every person her time and is the most thoughtful person I’ve been around. She wants every detail perfect, whether it be what she’s cooking for dinner or a project she is finishing.

What was your favorite part of the wedding day?

KAYLA

My favorite part of the day was the first look. When the wedding actually started, it was such a flash. It was calming to catch my breath with Grant beforehand and focus on us. 

GRANT

How can I pick one favorite part?! Between the sneak peak, seeing Kayla walk down the aisle, and the beautiful sunset streaming through the barn, it’s hard to pick. There was such a calming feeling with the sunset setting over us, but seeing her walk down the aisle will always be my favorite part.

This gorgeous barn was planned originally for the site of the reception, with the ceremony being held in front of the arbor. However, the rain changed everything. The arbor became the first look location, and the barn was the site of the ceremony and the reception.

The cord of three strands ceremony (often called “God’s Knot” or the Unity Braid Ceremony) symbolizes the joining of one man, one woman, and God into a marriage relationship. It adds a truly unique element to your ceremony that friends and family will remember.

What advice would you pass on to other engaged couples planning a wedding?

KAYLA

I wanted to be in control of absolutely everything going on with the wedding which worked well until the day of, when the rain came in and our outdoor venue was moved to the barn. I couldn’t do all the heavy lifting in my gown hours before I walked down the aisle. It was no time to be frantic. In those moments, I relied on all the wonderful, loving people around me to make decisions for me and it couldn’t have turned out better- half hour delay and all! In the end, I married my love and not even the chaos of flipping the ceremony into a reception in the same space got in the way of our life-long commitment that day. 

GRANT

Advice? Over communicate. Not in an annoying, non-stop talking-all-day manner, but be clear about your dreams and plans. If you’re on the same page, you’re an unstoppable team. Share the best part of your day, take an interest in what the other is doing, and cherish every moment together. Life gets busy, but always make time for your partner. Even if it’s a fifteen minute lunch date, a phone call or an extra five minutes of cuddling in bed, every second matters. Just cherish life and all of the things it brings you.

She loves the way he embraces the little things that most of us take for granted. She loves how he leaves notes in different places, saying he loves her. She loves how he loves unconditionally.

You might have recently read Harry and Shana’s engagement story shared from Harry’s perspective (if you missed it you can read it here). This is a continuation of their love story, told through the eyes and heart of Shana.

“I love how proud he is of our family and how is he teaching our boys to grow up to be little gentlemen and showing my daughter Kendyl how she deserves to be treated.  He has the biggest heart. He’s there for anyone at anytime.  He is not afraid to give a spontaneous hug, kiss, wink or grab my hand while walking through a store. He always opens the door for Kendyl and I, and he is constantly complimenting me.  He treats me better than I ever thought possible, I am truly lucky to call him my husband. 

Harry seems just as enamored with his bride. “The entire day was amazing, and seemingly went as fast as it came. But my bride was my favorite part of the wedding day,” said Harry.

Shana’s favorite part of the wedding day was actually sharing their “letters” to each other. “I absolutely hated the idea of it at the beginning because I am terrible at that sort of thing. Its not easy for me to express my feelings, unlike Harry who could probably write cards for Hallmark. I am so glad that we did that though, it really made that moment and that day more meaningful,” she said.

As for me, I felt so lucky to witness and capture their official union. We worked together for over a year, and I loved how invested they were in each other, their wedding day AND their photography. They are proof that love always gives us many chances in life, and Harry is the shining example of chivalry and good manners. I’m glad to know it’s not a thing of the past, and that he’s setting the bar high for others to follow.

Advice to engaged couples from Harry and Shana: Don’t stress so much, the minor details and drama that stress you out leading up to and even on the day of the event literally just work themselves out. At the end of the day, it isn’t about any other person but you and your spouse, so just take deep breaths and enjoy the journey. This will be the only time you have your people in one place at one time celebrating you!

Richmond, Indiana Wedding Advice – Married:: Haley and Garrett

wedding, wedding dress, bridal gown, wedding photography, wedding photographer, professional photographer, Indianapolis wedding photographer, Fourth Floor Blues Club, wedding rings, flowers, Professional wedding photographer, bridesmaids, groomsment, wedding inspiration, Richmond Indiana Wedding PhotographySometimes the best wedding advice comes from a recent bride herself. And when Haley talked about not forgetting to savor every moment, I thought it was worth sharing to engaged couples who are either in the planning process or getting ready to enter into it.

“My advice to anyone getting married is to enjoy the planning process, everything will come together beautifully, but the most important thing you should not forget is to savor every moment. From choosing your dress with your closest friends and family, to the rehearsal dinner and those precious moments of getting ready with your bridesmaids before you say ‘I do,’ ensure that you are making memories along your planning journey instead of worrying about whats to come next. I loved the few personal touches I put into my day, such as making concrete votives with my dad in the backyard on a warm February weekend. Those are the memories that will make your day truly special.”

The part that really resonated with me was her reference to making memories with her dad on a warm February day in preparation for her summer wedding. These truly are the things you’ll reflect back on whether it’s with your dad or a grandma or a best friend.

Haley, now an interior designer for Pottery Barn, reflected back on what brought her and Garrett together. You can read more of their story here, but suffice it to say it only took a few months of Haley and Garrett spending time together to realize we were a perfect match. She remembers texting her mom to let her know she had met the man she was going to marry… he just didn’t know it yet.

It’s been two month since they said “I do” and Haley feels like the time has given her a glimpse into our marriage. They discovered they love to garden together, and Garrett has helped her hang curtains, install shelves, gather interesting knobs for DIY projects and other odds and ends that make their new apartment feel like home. They have also set goals with each other as to where they want to be in one, five, and ten years down the road. Garrett works full-time as the Assistant Director of Operations in the Attorney’s General’s Office and will also be attending the IU McKinney School of Law part-time while maintaining his position in the Attorney General’s Office. Garrett is committed in everything he does and Haley knows she can always depend on him. He is deeply passionate about his career which propels him toward achieving so much at such a young age. While she tends to make decisions more hasty, Garrett is the exact opposite. He likes to take his time, weighing all of his options and seeking council from others. Garrett has taught her to take a step back, slow down and enjoy the journey.

” I have never seen Garrett get emotional and I had no idea how he would react on our wedding day. As we were exchanging vows I saw a softer side to him that I had never seen before. The weight of our vows was resinating with him and you could see the joy written all over his face. As my dad gave some of the sweetest and most sincere advice, we had our moment of “Wow, today we are finally here and I am so excited to spend the rest of my life with you,” and that is something I will never forget.”  -Haley

“I really like how driven Haley is and when she feels something is important, she takes it seriously. This really balances our relationship. She knows exactly what she wants and she works to achieve her goals. It is nice to have someone who has this mentality. I also love how devoted she is to our relationship. She is always looking for the best way to make us a stronger couple. From the onset of our marriage she has us journaling weekly to make sure we were making time for one another and everything was being discussed in our relationship.”  – Garrett

Wedding venue: Married Ella and Daniel

by August 7th, 2017 No Comments »

Among the several things on your “to do” list after getting engaged is booking your wedding venue. Pronto. The really great ones book up quick. And it’s a good thing that’s exactly what Ella and Daniel did after he proposed because the Historic Meeting House at New Garden provided just the right setting for their storybook outdoor wedding dreams.

Both Ella and Daniel enjoy the outdoors and wanted to commit themselves to each other in front of a small, intimate group of family and friends, standing next to a rushing creek, under a canopy of trees, sunlight streaming through the leaves on their faces, with a showering of cottonwood at just the right moment and made us all take a deep sigh, believing in the power of love.

To make your day flow as smoothly as possible, make sure your venue dressing room(s) have plenty of room to spread out. There are dresses to hang, make up and hair stations that need to be set up, plenty of space to not only put your bags BUT also hide them later when the photography begins, and as always proximity to restrooms is important. From a photography perspective, natural light is always a big bonus, as well as there being an alternate room where the bride and bridesmaids can stash their bags, coffee cups, loose hangers, flip flops, make up, robes, etc… because when it comes time to begin photographing the bride putting on her dress you’ll want all of those distracting elements out of the room so they don’t clutter up your photographs. I really can’t stress this enough.

The weddings I’ve photographed at New Garden have always been outside. It’s the perfect place not only because it’s beautiful, but they also offer a rain plan. The meeting house itself can be a space for a last minute indoor ceremony or in the case of Ella and Daniel’s wedding, it offered additional space for getting ready and some indoor photography options, keeping us out of the heat and humidity.

You’ll notice the elegant WORKING chandelier hanging from the rustic doorway that provided a beautiful backdrop to the ceremony (above). These elements are provided by The Historic Meeting House at New Garden. The owners, Lisa and Chris, have to be some of the most attentive hosts, and not only offer these visual delights as options but also set everything up for you. Ella offers a piece of advice, “If you don’t have to do it yourself, don’t, and hire it done. We did almost everything ourselves and it was fun, but your lives don’t stop just because you’re getting married. Any bit of stress that you can take off of yourself is definitely worth it.”

A wedding day is loaded with memories. Ella and Daniel recall their favorite moments from the day below.

Ella: Daniel’s face when he first saw me during our first look, and walking down the aisle and seeing all of our hard work come together and how blessed we really were to be able to pull the wedding off.

Daniels: When people were speaking and praying blessings over us, and when we said “I do” to each other.

Ella, studying business at IU East, and Daniel, head chef at The Kitchen, have an admiration for each other’s qualities that made them decide this was “the one”. For Daniel, it’s Ella’s beautiful heart for others and her amazing joy in every situation. 

For Ella, it’s Daniel’s gentle and selfless way of going about life that demonstrate he is a Christ seeking and fearing man. He always asks how he can do others justice or how he can simply improve his own everyday life to make it the best it can be for both of them.

It was a joy to spend the day with Ella, Daniel and their families. One day, I’m hoping they can build their house on the property we did their engagement shoot at and they have years of love to follow.

Richmond-Indiana-Christmas-Wedding: Ellie + Ian

by March 4th, 2017 3 Comments »

A Christmas Wedding

“She is SO personable. She does not know a stranger, and I love that about her. She is family-oriented, and has the most beautiful smile.

wedding photography

“He is always up for having a good time, he is caring and generous, he is friendly, and HILARIOUS! I always feel safe when he is around, and I feel a bit empty when I am apart from him.”

If you’re a former bride of mine, you might recognize Ellie. She’s been my assistant at plenty of weddings. But on this day she took her turn among the STP brides. Ellie and Ian tied the knot on a rainy December day. I have to confess, I was a little concerned. A white dress and styled hair on a rainy, cold day might not make for a good outcome. But if anyone could shrug it off, it’s Ellie. And she did, for this Christmas Wedding.

The two met through a mutual friend years ago, and after several years of dating, friends and family realized they were destined for a long life of love and commitment. Ian proposed during homecoming week-end at Purdue, their alma mater. We went back to the site of the proposal for their engagement photographs. If you missed it, catch up here!


“The whole wedding day was amazing. Our favorite part was sharing such a special time with so many people we love. It was an awesome feeling having so many close friends and family members there to celebrate US and our love. The best part of the day was the fact that we made a vow to spend the rest of our lives with our best friend.”



I always ask married couples if they have advice to bestow upon newly engaged couples. After all, its good to have advice first-hand.  “Don’t blink, said Ellie. The day goes by way too fast. Don’t worry about pleasing everyone else, they are there to celebrate your love. So be in love. Make it the most perfect day with your closest friends, family members, and your new spouse, no matter the weather!”

Ellie and Ian, thank you for picking me to capture the love between the two of you. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!

Indianapolis, IN, Indiana State Museum Wedding: Melissa and Ryan

by January 24th, 2017 No Comments »

Indiana State Museum wedding photography

They opted for a small wedding at the Indiana State Museum on the Canal in Indianapolis, IN, and had the people who love them most in the world in the room to celebrate. After 11 years together — to the day, they enjoyed each other, their love and celebrating finally becoming husband and wife.

Melissa and Ryan first became best friends, talking on the phone every day and hanging out. After a year of being best friends, they both knew they had fallen in love with the other and decided to start dating. Melissa moved to Indianapolis after she graduated college and a year after the move, they moved in together and started their journey together.

It’s hard to narrow it down to a couple of things you admire in a person you’re in love with, but Melissa summed up her feelings well. “Ryan has always amazed me with his hard work and drive. Once he puts his mind to something, he will do everything in his power to make it a reality. He has a sense of humor that cannot be beat, on even my worst days, he can always manage to put a smile on my face. We have so many great memories just laughing together and being silly. His loyalty to me and those he loves is beyond measure. Ryan is always there for anyone who needs him, he is willing to drop anything to talk to me or a friend after a bad day, give advice or just listen.”

Ryan’s top of the list when it comes to Melissa is her selflessness. “Melissa always puts other peoples needs before her own, 100% of the time. She enjoys being there for people she loves and helping them with any problem, celebrating their successes and loving unconditionally, her drive and work ethic–it was one of the things that pulled us together to begin with. I have always been impressed with her business sense. She has always had big dreams and worked hard to accomplish them. I also admire Melissa’s dedication to family. She has a strong love and dedication to her family and closest friends. She has always put these people first and cherishes the time she gets to spend with those she loves.”

Indiana State Museum wedding photographyThe Oceanaire, where their wedding reception was held, holds special memories for the two of them. They dined there on the night Ryan asked Melissa to be his wife. Being foodies, they had a wonderful dinner, then went to Christmas at the Indianapolis Zoo, something Melissa had been wanting to do for years.  After a few hours of walking around and looking at the zoo lights (and animals), Ryan pulled Melissa off to a quiet, private area next to the Lions Den, dropped to one knee and asked Melissa to marry him. Ryan pulled the most beautiful ring out of his coat pocket and the rest is history.

“We both love Indianapolis and wanted our venues to give the Indianapolis feel. It was important it felt intimate and personal and both venues gave the ambiance we had dreamed of,” said Melissa.

Melissa and Ryan, it was more than a pleasure to capture and share such an important day in your lives. Thanks for asking me to be your wedding photographer!

A Doctor Who, Richmond, Indiana Wedding: Cassie and Kyle

by November 9th, 2016 No Comments »

Doctor Who Wedding

What started off as a quick glimpse at work and eventually a facebook friendship, turned into a date and the realization for Cassie that she had just met the man she knew she would marry. What Kyle calls Cassie’s “geek-chic style” fascinated him, and five months later he proposed, offering Cassie an engagement ring that had been handed down from his great-grandmother.

Cassie and Kyle both work in the social work field, advocating for children and families, which seems fitting when both describe each other as loving and compassionate.

They both have a bit of advice to pass along to engaged couples: simplify your wedding for less stress, and don’t get wrapped up into things that might be an over-the-top production because in the end its about two people committing their lives to each other and coming together as one. Expect an element of unpredictability throughout the day, laugh and try to be gentle and kind to people along the way.

Kyle’s favorite part of this Dr. Who wedding day was seeing Cassie walk down the aisle for the first time, taking her hand and placing the ring on her finger. You can see the joy on his face as they recess back up the aisle.  They both agreed that a very special part of the day was when they kissed as husband and wife.

We were able to steal away for a few minutes during the day for a couple of shots in the Rose Garden at Glen Miller Park.

Cassie and Kyle, thank you for giving me the honor of witnessing your love from a front row seat, and capturing the connection between you.

xoxo

Indianapolis Museum of Art Wedding, Indianapolis, Indiana: Maria and Tom Part 2

by October 1st, 2016 No Comments »

As promised, here is the final part of Maria and Tom’s Indianapolis Museum of Art wedding. In case you may have missed part 1, you can catch up here.

One of their unique elements of their wedding celebration was the “Colombian Dance Party” during the reception where they played traditional Colombian music. For the first dance, they chose “Fly Me to the Moon” by Frank Sinatra, as the bride grew up listening to it with her father, but as a surprise for the guests, they also danced Colombia Salsa right after.

Maria and Tom loved the big floor to ceiling windows at their venue because they could bring the outdoors inside and enjoy the sunlight coming in. The IMA gardens were the perfect location for a romantic ceremony, and being surrounded by trees and lush flowers was perfectly in line with their natural wedding theme.

I like to ask each bride to pass on something they learned through the wedding planning process. Maria encourages everyone to enjoy every minute of the big day! “I know everyone says it will go by fast, but it’s hard to explain how fast it actually is. Pay attention to all of the details you planned for so long the day of. Even if it is just for 5 seconds, make sure to stare at those gorgeous details you came up with. And if something goes wrong, let it go, no one else will notice, and all that matters is that you have the love of your life by your side. And lastly, stay together on the dance floor. It was amazing how this made all of the guests come and join us” stated Maria.

Maria’s view:

Tom was and is extremely funny! I remember this exact text he sent me right when we met that still makes me laugh, it was so relaxing to be with him and I still cannot stop staring at his beautiful blue eyes! Tom is so smart and a hard worker, and since we met I’ve been extremely inspired by his tremendous work ethic. Tom is always extremely kind and sweet and always finds a way to make me smile. I am extremely lucky to get to spend the rest of my life with him.

He has made me want to work harder for my dreams, because he showed me that working hard pays off, and I knew with him by my side I could accomplish anything. He has always been there for me, his unconditional love, support and companion, even when we were in different countries.

Tom’s view:

Maria is sexy and smart. When I met her, she was doing research at MIT, and has since gotten a Master’s from Duke. Each day, I am in awe of how incredibly intelligent and business savvy she is, and how she can do things that I can’t even begin to do half as well as her. She’s relentlessly enthusiastic and happy, and enjoys life more than most people. When she really gets happy, she’ll actually squeal, which is incredibly endearing. She’s contagious with how she views life. Nobody I know deserves the good things that happen to her more than Maria, and I plan to dedicate my life to ensuring that those good things keep on coming. I’m wildly in love with this gorgeous, brilliant woman, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with her.

I’ve loved getting to know Maria and Tom, and I was honored to spend such a special day with them. Gratitude goes out to all the wonderful vendors below for making the day run smoothly and for the fantastic memories.

xoxo

  • Honor. Dignity. Knowing, really knowing, you hold value because of who you are rather than what you do, how you look, or who you know. Self love can grow if you make steady, small decisions about things like not picking apart what you see in the mirror, not comparing yourself to others, and choosing to deeply believe you are worthy of being loved with your flaws, wrinkles, scars and mistakes. There’s no arriving, it’s more of a forward motion that brings increasing measures of peace and rest as the insanity and darkness of perfectionism and comparison falls away. It’s work. It’s a choice. And it’s worth it.”– Elizabeth

  • It’s in our nature to be connected to one and other. And there’s nothing better than belonging to a tribe. As part of the STP (Susanna Tanner Photography) family you’re recognized as a significant and valuable.
And being part of the STP family means giving back. When you book your wedding, 5% of your booking price is automatically contributed to Girls Inc. an organization that offer girls (ages 6-18) life-changing programs and experiences that help them navigate gender, economic, and social barriers.
What I love about this organization is how it empowers young girls with programs that support their academics; teaches them how to lead healthy and physically active lives, make healthy sexual choices, manage money, navigate media messages; and to discover an interest in science, technology, engineering and math. It’s supporting the next generation of women who will be leading our communities.
