Leah | Senior Photographer

Today is Leah's birthday and I thought I would feature her on the blog, as a little birthday treat!

Leah graduated from Purdue this May with a degree in Visual Communications Design. To celebrate this great achievement, we had a wonderful photo-op! She is stunning and her smile is incredible. I couldn't stop smiling behind the camera every time she started smiling. She truly was glowing with excitement for her future and all of her successes.

It was a blast spending the evening on Purdue's campus, talking about our favorite places and biggest memories. Leah, congratulations on all you have achieved! I know that you will do great things in your life.

Abigail | Class of 2013

Congratulations Abi! You have completed probably the biggest challenge in your life so far - a solid 12 years of schooling. And look at you, you don't look stressed out at all! Actually, quite the opposite. You look radiant and full of life. That is one of the many reasons I has such a wonderful time photographing her. She  loves to laugh and twirl and joke around - and we did plenty of that! But I think my absolute favorite photos are when she is frolicking in the flowers. The colors complement her eyes perfectly. They are SO blue! I couldn't believe it.

What photos are your favorites?

Kelsey + Justin | Lafayette Engagement Photographer

I have been dying to post this session. Every photograph I snapped (+700!) was so beautiful. It was hard to narrow my favorites down. But here's the story with Justin and Kelsey. They are both incredibly beautiful and happy people. They make each other glow with happiness - which will be very evident in a few moments. This April, the two dined at the delicious La Scala. Kelsey was a little suspicious at this point and was waiting for the moment he would propose...but nothing. Instead Justin acted like nothing was happening at all. They then walked hand-in-hand across the pedestrian bridge, admiring the scene. And according to Kelsey, " Once we made it part way on the bridge, he stopped me, and got on one knee, and asked me to MARRY HIM!" Of course Kelsey said yes! They will be married later this year, and live happily ever after.

Here are a few of my favorite shots from the session. I would love to hear what one is YOUR favorite.

Jeff & Audrey | Lafayette Engagement Photographer

You should have seen my face when I got this email: So I'm planning to propose at Purdue Thursday evening this week and was wondering if you would be available.

I'm planning to propose between 6 and 7 at the union. Basically I've set it up to where she thinks she's going out to eat with friends at 7 and she will be meeting them at the union, where I'll be waiting :)

I was ALL smiles! Oh my gosh I was so excited. I felt like an FBI agent, hiding in the grass with my big, ol' cameras and lenses. There were a lot of weird looks coming my way, but it was so worth it. The moment when Jeff got down on one knee was incredible. It was like the world stopped for a moment. Audrey was astonished and so in love. Her arms flew around Jeff and she said the magical words: "Yes!".

It was such an amazing experience and I was so honored that you two asked me to capture this incredible day for you. I truly wish you two all the happiness in the world!
