I've photographed hundreds of weddings and still get excited for each new special day that I'm entrusted to capture!
When you hire me, or one of my associates, to capture your wedding day, you are getting more than priceless images of one of the most important days of your life.
You want someone who is going to be helpful, reachable, and meets deadlines throughout the entire process, and you are proud to have among your family and friends on your wedding day. You want someone you can trust so that you can spend your time with other aspects of your day.
It wasn't long ago that I was in your shoes, planning and envisioning every perfect detail of our wedding day. So, I know how it feels to want everything to go perfectly, but also how stressful wedding planning can be. After photographing hundreds of weddings, our years of experience as wedding photographers allows us to not only anticipate your needs but make your wedding photography experience stress-free and fun! You can count on us to be calm, patient, and prepared throughout your entire planning process.
Yes, we have received awards for our work, including being named one of the BEST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS in Indianapolis, and our work can be seen in print magazines such as TheKnot's 50 States, 50 Weddings print feature. You can also see pictures of our fabulous couples filling blogs around the internet. We've photographed weddings for people that you may have heard of and a lot of weddings for wonderful people we are privileged to have met. While we are so honored and humbled by all of that, it all wouldn't matter if we weren't serving our couples well. If we weren't giving you our best and bringing out the images that will touch your heart and tell your love story.
So, it's our reviews that mean the most to us. Love notes from real couples who will use the images we've created to tell their grandchildren about their wedding day. If you care to take a peek at what they have to say, we collect Google reviews, reviews on TheKnot, and reviews on WeddingWire.
My first memories of taking "pictures" was with a toy camera that spit out "pictures" that "developed" when wet.
One christmas, I received a real polaroid camera and was snapping pictures everywhere I went. (I have no idea how much my poor parents must have paid in film).
I recently stumbled across some gems taken with that camera, including my first wedding picture. I was 7 years old.
Yep, this is the actual picture.
Austin and I met in college when our church took a mission trip to Biloxi, Mississippi to help those who lost their homes to hurricane Katrina.
After the trip, Austin would show up occasionally, eat our food and play cards. We were great friends, but that was about it.

We love to travel, find great restaurants, and just enjoy life. Ask Austin about the best steak he's ever had. He'd love to tell you the story.
Our hobbies aren't the same, our love languages are opposites, and sometimes we just plain don't understand each other.
It all works though, we're best friends and we know that a beautiful marriage is one of the most wonderful gifts that the Lord has given us, but a beautiful marriage is always hard work.
