Emma + Michael

October 19

Happy Thursday! Hope everyone is having a great week. Every year, I do my best to take one weekend off in October to enjoy with my family and friends. I fight the urge to book anything that weekend so I can be available to do, well…anything. That’s this weekend for me! I’m looking forward to soaking up the fall weather, going to a baby shower and doing all kinds of happy fall things with my little nephews. I’m proud to share I’ve withheld myself to only eating one full bag of candy corn on my own up until this point of the fall season. I’m pretty proud of that!

I’ve been so excited to share a few images from Emma and Michael’s stunning wedding.

As you can probably see, these two had amazing weather. I think perfect weather must just follow them wherever they go. We had amazing weather for their engagement photos too! Glowing light and all. I was so happy to spend some time with them at their engagement session to get a feel for how they are together before their wedding day. They are pretty perfect for each other and make such a great team. Did I mention they are sweethearts – both of them – to the core. It was such a joy to spend their special day with them and I’m so honored they asked me to be their wedding photographer. I’ll never forget them sneaking up behind me at Hannah and Ryan’s wedding in July and saying with a huge smile across their faces, “We’re next!”

Well guys – everything was perfect. From the weather to your awesome friends and family to every detail perfectly executed ..I couldn’t have asked for a better day with you two. Thank you so much for the honor of being your wedding photographer. I look forward to keeping in touch and seeing your future together unfold! ๐Ÿ™‚

Okay, here we go. I will never NOT love a bride that wears simple and elegant (+blush!) wedding shoes. Have I mentioned here that I love photographing details? Oh yes, probably at least 50 times.

LOOOOK at this gorgeous couple!!!

Okay really, see what I mean by perfect glowing light? This is my dream time of day to photograph anyone or anything. Soft light. Backlit. With a halo of light around my subjects. Yes please!

I pushed myself on this wedding and shot one roll of black and white. You can NEVER go wrong with black and white, am I right? My photography student days are surfacing as I say that. So much time in the dark room in college. If you had told me then that I’d be photographing film at weddings one day, I would have thought you were nuts. I’m so glad it’s the case! My beloved Indy – I love you so! Emma and Mike – you two are a dream to photograph.

HOLY smokes those flowers! Can you imagine sitting down to start building that bouquet? My mind is blown. Such awesome talent!

Someday, Mike’s kids will look at this photos and think, “Man, Dad was a babe!” Does anyone else look at photos of their dad back in the day and do the same? Mine rocked a serious mustache and it was incredible.

Beautiful, you two.

More black and white. So timeless. Couldn’t love this image any more!

Does a blush bridesmaid dress ever go out of style? No it does not! Look at these 6 gorgeous ladies!

Many thanks to my friend Molly Connor for all of your wonderful help at Mike and Emma’s wedding!! I appreciate you so much!

Someone fun onlooking the groomsmen and cheering on the groom. It’s not uncommon for this to happen while taking bridal party photos.

Did I mention these two saw each other before their ceremony? Opened up plenty of time to get tons of photos beforehand. The best!


These two had some really special toasts!

With her father. Man I love this so much!!!

Have a great night, friends! Thank you as always for your support!
