Photography is more than just taking pictures - it is meeting incredible families, couples, and newborns. It is taking the time to get to know the unique qualities that make you so YOU. That is why I absolutely love being a Lafayette Indiana Photographer. This past year has been such an amazing experience for me - with eleven weddings in Chicago, Indy, and our beautiful downtown Lafayette, with gorgeous newborn babies, beautiful and energetic families, and the opening of my studio!

I am feeling very blessed right now!

Enjoy this quick glance at 2013 and some of my favorite photos!

The minute I met these two lovebirds I knew that they were perfect for each other. They complemented one another like peanut butter and jelly - like hot chocolate and a cozy fire - like Tinker Bell and fairy dust...You get the picture. They were so excited just talking about their wedding, I couldn't imagine how happy they would be on their wedding day! Until I saw them. Absolutely handsome and gorgeous. They looked perfect, and so did everything else. Their wedding was magical. Their colors were light pink paired with whites and greens. They had beautiful bouquets made by Heather's Flowers which were a work of art. She even topped the cake off to make everything flow together. And Brooke's dress! I was in love! The back of her dress was lined with delicate lace and perfectly lined bows. When it was paired with her incredible eyes, amazing smile, and elegant up-do, she looked like a bride from one of the magazines. Everyone in the entire room couldn't keep their eyes off of her, especially her husband! He was smitten and felt like the luckiest man in the world. They both felt that way!

Stacy & Charlie | Wedding Photographer

It's one thing to be in the heart of downtown Chicago, another thing to be on a boat in Chicago, and an entirely different thing to be on a boat at a wedding in the heart of Chicago, photographing the entire thing! I can promise you that this is a dream of a photographer to experience. You are surrounded by beauty and life. Being on the boat, we almost felt like the entire city was celebrating their love with us! People in restaurants, other boats, or random observers cheered for Stacy & Charlie all night long! It was thrilling and so contagious. Stacy was bubbling with happiness, excitement, and love non-stop. It was so fun capturing that on camera for her. It also was incredibly beautiful to see these two families come together and support the love between these two. They have incredible families that love them to pieces. And they sure know how to celebrate! I saw some awesome dance moves on the floor that night - making me want to hop on in there wit them!

Everything about their wedding was perfect - from the weather, to the people there, to the gorgeous sunset coloring the sky. I had to stop sometimes and just admire the beauty around us. It was incredible and was the perfect place to celebrate the marriage of these two - who are also so full of life, love, and beauty.

And I also have to stay that DJ Sunn was mixing his beats like crazy! He was bring the party to the next level. Everyone was up shakin' their booties, and moving to the beat. The hubby and I were shaking our booties behind the camera all night long.

The evening was splendid, but the marriage between these two was priceless. I wish you two all the best and the happiest of marriages! Thank you for having me be there to capture this day for you.

Now tell me, would you ever do a wedding on a Chicago boat tour?

 

Sam & Alex | Wedding Photographer

First of all, I want to congratulate the newly wedding Sam & Alex on their marriage. I truly am so happy for them. They love each other completely and were overflowing with that love during the wedding. Being there, you knew that these two individuals were meant for each other and that happiness will fill their marriage. Secondly, I was in love with everything about their wedding. I loved their fun colors, quirky shoes, and chic decor throughout the entire event. It also was a gorgeous day and held off for them, almost as a wedding gift. :) Their bridal party was a blast and I could have photographed them for hours! And lastly, their reception was filled with music, cake, cookies, and lots of dancing. It was so great and I feel so blessed to have been there for this special day.

Thank you Sam & Alex! You two are incredible together!

Nikki + John | Wedding Photographer

This was one of the funnest weddings I have ever photographed. I secretly wished I was a guest so that I could enjoy everything that was going on! First of all, the couple was very much in love. Congratulations Nikki & John! I am truly so excited for both of you and I know that you will love being each other's Mr. & Mrs.

Second of all - they sent me up 40 feet high on a cherry-picker to shoot a few shots of the entire wedding. It was a little (a lot) nerve wrecking and so exciting! I was as tall as the trees and everyone looking liked little, teeny legos people. That was a first for me.

And during their reception they had dancing, corn hole, NERF guns, and a MASSEUSE! I am telling you, they treat their guests right. The kids were entertained the entire time and the parents were able to kick back and relax, while getting their feet rubbed. How incredible is that? So all you brides at there, if you want to make your guests happy - get someone to rub their feet!
