I first met Jill and her sweet mother, Janet, back in February. Jill’s excitement to marry Austin made my heart happy. I learned very quickly on how strong Jill and Austin’s relationship is and how centered it is in Christ. Austin and Jill were apart for many months leading up to the wedding while Austin was away at McGill University in Canada. Austin is an extremely talented kicker with aspirations to play for the Pro’s. It was clear from our first meeting how wonderful of a cheerleader and friend Jill is to Austin and why they make such a great team.
After taking their engagement photos just weeks ago, I was so happy and excited to be there to capture their wedding day. Jill and Austin married at Harbor Shores church in Noblesville, IN. They had a small reception at the church immediately following their ceremony and an additional reception at Harbour Trees Golf Club. Their day was perfect and I was so honored to play a small part.
J+A – You two make my heart smile SO BIG! I’ve loved every second of getting to know you over the months. Thank you for inviting me into your lives for a bit and giving me the chance to document your love. Can’t wait to see what the future has in store for you guys.
Jill’s something blue. I’m a TOMS girl so I loved this touch! Every member of the bridal party wore TOMS – so fun!
This was moments after Jill’s grandmother arrived on Saturday. She wasn’t expected to be able to make it but by the grace of God, she was able to come out and see her granddaughter get married. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room. Moments like this one remind me not only why the work we do as photographers is so important, it also reminds me once again why I love my job.
Jill- You are so naturally beautiful and photogenic.
Jill and Austin had such a fun bridal party. Loved getting to know them and see firsthand how much fun they have with J+A.
Augh, Addie (the adorable junior bridesmaid in orange) was seated with me and my assistant at dinner. She is quite the sweetheart! : )
This shot was captured as Jill and her father were walking down the aisle. That groomsmen on the right? That’s Jill’s brother, Ray. So sweet.
Mr. and Mrs. Anderson!
Janet handmade all of the favors for each guest – complete with homemade candy, melt away mints and gum. Each favor was adorned with an “A” for Jill’s new last name – Anderson.
Austin’s father, Gary Anderson (left), was a hugely successful kicker in the NFL for many years. Loved hearing him, his wife and Austin’s brother Doug speak.
Many thanks to Esther for second shooting with me!
