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

Engagement Photo Shoot at Hayes Arboretum, Richmond Indiana

by November 7th, 2017 No Comments »

A fate-driven, life-changing journey. That’s how Harry describes his working relationship turned love-of-his-life experience with Shana. She is his soulmate and best friend. And soon to be his wife.

They wanted their engagement photo shoot at Hayes Arboretum to be the setting for our time together. Shana loves the arches and the outdoors suits them well. Engagement shoots can be some of my favorite times to spend with couples. There is so much energy between them, along with anticipation for the future. The pace is slow, and let’s be honest, it’s great practice for the wedding day.

Harry has a wonderful way expressing himself in words so I’ll let him speak for the emotions of our afternoon together. “Our perfectly imperfect family seems to mesh just as if it was meant to be, and I seriously can’t imagine life any other way. Shana and I are literally opposites to one another. Her strengths are my weaknesses and alternatively I feel my strengths compliment her weaknesses. She has challenged me to not take life so seriously and sometimes just “roll with it” and know what will be will be and it will work out. When I see seriously in love elderly couples relying on one another, I know that’s what I see in her in I. When I see them helping one another into the doctors, or to open a sandwich wrapper, these everyday life activities that ultimately become struggles with age, are the lifelong  benchmarks that I know I will see with this woman. The good, the bad, the just ok, we will take it all as it comes and know it will never be taken alone. I absolutely cannot wait to see what is in store for us as spouses, parents, and hopefully one day grandparents as we go through this thing called life together” writes Harry.

Here’s to the girl who is the yin to Harry’s yang, and to a beautiful summer evening turning into a lifetime of helping each other with sandwich wrappers, holding doors open, doctor appointments together and lots and lots of happiness.
