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

Indiana Engagement Photography, Hannah and Sam

by May 26th, 2017 1 Comment »

engagement photographyThis Indiana engagement photography session all began with a few messages and texts, which led to a FaceTime date. Hannah was prepared with a notecard of talking points – it was the start of Shark Week which is their” thing”. When it was time to meet face-to-face, Sam remembers just how bright the stars were. The weather was warm, his heart was pounding with nervousness and excitement, and he had no idea what to expect. The moment his eyes caught a glimpse of her in that beautiful, pink summer dress as she walked out her front door, his world stopped. His breath was taken away; he knew she was the one.

Their relationship has been long-distance since the beginning. Visits were limited to weekends, minus a few surprise visits when they needed to see each other. Both will admit that the distance has been a challenge, but the feeling each has when they are together is what makes it all worthwhile. Sam will tell you that his heart still skips a beat every time he sees Hannah. Her beauty is not just on the outside but radiates from within. She makes him laugh, she is his rock, and she brightens every day with her gorgeous smile.

Hannah finds comfort in his arms. Sam drives her so crazy that she can only laugh. Sam supports her in everything she does and that only can make her smile. And, when Sam kisses her she only feels warmth and love. Hannah stated she knew the moment she saw Sam that he was the one God sent for her.

Outtakes 

Every session leads to some less-than-traditional portraits, but ultimately shows the energy of the shoot. I love this image of Hannah smiling as she manages herself through the great outdoors in heels while Sam is being chivalrous with the flowers.
