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

Marott Indianapolis Wedding: Hannah + Sam

by March 30th, 2018 No Comments »

Hannah and Sam tied the knot in a sophisticated nod to Disney at their Marott Indianapolis Wedding near downtown. A professional “princess,” Hannah often brings joy to others by singing and impersonating various Disney princesses. On this day though, she truly was the princess marrying her prince.

Their first dance was to “So Close” from Disney’s Enchanted.

Hannah and Sam are playing “The Shoe Game.” Here’s how it works: During your reception, after you’ve enjoyed some dinner, dancing, and drinks, place two chairs back-to-back on the dance floor for the bride and groom. Remove both of your shoes, then trade a shoe with your new spouse so that you’re holding one of each. Then, have a designated person who knows you well ask a series of questions about the two of you and your relationship (i.e.. “Who will be doing most of the cooking?” “Who said ‘I love you’ first?”). After each question, hold up the shoe of the person you think is the best answer to the question. The fun part about it is that you can’t see what the other person is answering, so many times there is so much laughter and, as the bride, you aren’t sure if he answered the same as you or the opposite! The point of the game is really just another way for your guests to get to know you a bit better, but most of all, it’s for laughs and comic relief. One hint: The questions should be a surprise to the bride and groom.

Sparker send offs can be spectacular!

 

Most memorable moment on the wedding day:

Hannah:The most memorable moment for me was waiting outside the doors of the reception with my new husband. It was the first time that we got to spend any time that day alone— just the two of us. For a few moments, time stood still as we discussed how perfectly our ceremony reflected who we were as a couple.Sam: When Hannah pulled the microphone out to sing her vows. I had this strange feeling she had something up her sleeve, but I never would have guessed that. That song has always been one we consider our song, but that day it became something indescribable for me. 

Advice for future Brides:

Hannah: There is so much that society throws at us when it comes to weddings. Lots of “do this” and “do that”. Ignore it. The most important thing at the end of the day is that you are married. While planning, if you become overwhelmed, stop and remember what the day is for and not all of the other million details. Take risks, do what you want.

Sam:  Take everything in, but enjoy each other. This is on the day of the wedding but, more importantly, through the planning process. So much goes into a one night event. Remember why you’re getting married. You have a love for each other you want to always share. It’s not about all the other stuff!

Funniest memory of the wedding day:

Hannah: The funniest memory is definitely Sam and our first dance. He went with me to so many dance lessons in preparation for our first dance because he knew how important it was to me. As much as we practiced… we knew someone was going to make some kind of mistake while we were dancing. About :30 seconds into our dance, I notice Sam stepping incorrectly, and without hesitation I made a simple and elegant hand gesture showing him where to step. Luckily, we got right back on track! After the dance, I was so thrilled that we had done so well. The best part— no one knew we had a slight glitch. It is still something we laugh at! Such a good memory. So proud of Sam!

Sam: It happened after the wedding and reception, Hannah and I were going to the hotel room. We had to ride an elevator up to front desk. The doors to the elevator opened at the same time a family was walking by. The little girl, maybe 3 or 4, looked over and saw Hannah in her gorgeous gown. Without hesitation she said, “Oh look, a princess!” I broke out in laughter! It was perfect and I know Hannah loved it! Also, during our first dance, I was so nervous that I would screw up the choreography. And, sure enough, I started to mess up. I realized it right when I started and attempted to adjust before Hannah noticed, but it was too late. She gracefully moves her arm to direct me the correct direction. I laugh every time I see the video of it!

If you could go back, would you change anything:

Hannah: Absolutely not. I believe that everything happens for a reason. It was a perfect day!

Sam: I thoroughly enjoyed or wedding! Having the people we love and care about with us to celebrate was amazing. The venue was gorgeous and everything was great! For me, however, all that was important was that we had those people there and I married Hannah at some point that night! If I could do it all over again, I’d find someone’s huge backyard to host my huge families and Hannah’s families for ceremony and reception. I’m simple. 

Honeymoon:

Hannah: I love Disney and was excited to show Sam the magic since he had never gone before. We knew we would be feeling the magic of just being married and where better to feel like magic is real? We are both dreamers— almost to a fault. We believe in the good of the world. Disney has the kind of atmosphere where you step into the park and you feel all the happiness in the world. It was a perfect combination of happiness and total bliss!

Sam: Hannah is a huge Disney nerd and since we have been together she has begun to convert me. I had never been so that was the big to-do on Hannah’s ‘Sam To-Do List’. It was absolutely amazing!! She wore me out with everything she wanted to show me. It was all a blur because she was so excited we constantly were on the move. I can’t wait to go back to take it all in again.
