Happy spring, friends! Despite the fact that it’s 28 degrees outside in Indianapolis (huh?!), I’m happy to welcome spring in any ole state and put winter behind me. I think winter to spring is my favorite transition of seasons. I’m so ready for more sunshine, more color and definitely more driving with my windows down. Oh and also, so happy to kick off this first day of spring by sharing my first 2013 wedding you guys. Oh happy day!
Remember Lesley and Colin’s engagement photos? I adore these two. I first met with Lesley and Colin this past June. I was a little biased in liking them before we even met because my oldest brother’s name is Colin and obviously that meant we’d be a great match : ) My sweet friend, Denver, sent Lesley my way when she was newly engaged and honestly, the three of us hit it off immediately. Lesley and Colin are those people you want in your circle – they’re incredibly kind, easy going and so much fun. When I heard their wedding would be the first held at The Alexander, a beautiful new and swanky hotel opening this spring (weeks ago) in downtown Indianapolis, I was so pumped. L+C also told me Mayor Ballard would be officiating their wedding. I actually went to high school and was good friends with the mayor’s son and daughter. Greg was in my class and we sat next to each other in Mr. Ireland’s calculus class. Erica, a year older, is a gem and we took French class together those first few years at Brebeuf. I digress. Honestly, the mayor officiating L+C’s wedding was just one tiny detail that excited me to photograph their special day. What excited me most was the thought of getting to know these two better during the most exciting time of their lives.
L+C – Thank you so much for the honor of photographing your wedding day. I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding or couple to kick off my 2013 season. I count myself blessed to call you two friends. Looking forward to keeping in touch and watching how you two change the world together.
Special thanks to Maxie at The Alexander for all of your help making Lesley & Colin’s day run effortlessly. I’m so appreciative.
Loved this bridal party. Great group of people here.
Being a bride is tough work ; )
This one gives me goosebumps.
Thanks to my second shooter, Micah, for these next two shots. I always love how guys pass the time..
I love how Colin looks at Lesley.
These two had Alicia Keys’ “New Day” play after they kissed. Lesley is a girl after my own heart.
With Mayor Ballard and his lovely wife, Winnie 🙂
GAH. Love you two. (And let’s talk for a second about this wall at the Alexander? Obsessed.)
Shout out to this awesome and talented group of guys – The Main Squeeze – for keepin’ the party going.
