Terry & Danielle's Wedding Story | Columbia City IN, Wedding Photographer

When I asked Danielle to tell me a little bit about how her and Terry met, her story was perfect. It wasn't some made up love story...but a real heart felt story of how they both came together and built their love toward marriage. I had the honor of photographing their beautiful wedding this past weekend, IN THE SNOW! It was beautiful, well, the snow was but not so much the cold. :)

Mr & Mrs Brown - A Wedding Story

When I first met Marc and Ashlee, I was jealous of their tan. They love hanging out at the lake, which I don't blame them.   Their outdoor wedding venue suited them well which was right down the road from a handful of beautiful lakes in North Webster, Indiana.

It was the monthly Shoot and Mingle we all had been waiting for because, let's face it, weddings make us photographers giddy. Especially if you get to style it yourself! After speaking with our models, Kami and Drew, I knew that the theme would fall together perfectly.

Mr. & Mrs. Beard

Michelle and Zach lived within a 3 mile radius of each other but had never met. That was soon to change. Michelle's cousin had worked with Zach and had a feeling Zach and Michelle would be a great pair. Zach agreed to take Michelle out on a date, and from there they knew within the first few months they had found the one. Eight months after their first date, Zach proposed...and now they are happily married. They are truly a wonderful couple and I am so happy I was able to document this love story!

Mr & Mrs Koehl {A Wedding Story}

About 7 years ago when Meggan worked at Petware House, Justin and his mom would come in to purchase salt water fish. When Justin would come into the store, Meggan had always thought that he was spoiled and rather cocky. Little did she know that her boss was going to hire him! At first, Meggan was upset because she really didn't want to work with a spoiled and cocky kind of guy, but as time past, that spoiled and cocky guy turned out to be a sweetheart. Meggan even developed a little crush on him!! :-) After six months of working at Petware House, Justin asked Meggan out on a date.

Mr. & Mrs. Titus

Once upon a time, I was sitting in my cozy home when my phone rang. It was a bride to be, Anne, planning her wedding and in need of a wedding photographer. Anne explained she and her fiance had both been married before and this wedding was going to be simple, not your typical wedding. She further explained that the ceremony would be small, no bridal music or bridal party, and Tom and her would be seeing one another before hand.

Groovy baby, size matters...

On a side note, size matters. Yes, that's right, it DOES matter. I use to think an 8x10 was big but once I began to decorate my house it looked so itsy bitsy on my wall and was drowned out with all the other clutter in the house (I have kids, I am allowed to have clutter, right?). When hanging wall art, bigger is better. Here is an awesome image to show you what I mean.

Website, newborns, and weddings...OH MY!

WOW, what a crazy past couple of days.  I had the honor of photographing two newborns this past Saturday, and my oh my how I love newborns.  They are so tiny and the little grunts they make, just make your heart melt.  I love capturing their tiny gestures and their precious tiny wrinkly selves.  Children grow so quickly, and having photos of a newborn is a great reminder of their newness.  I look back at newborn photos of my first daughter and think to myself, "Was she REALLY that tiny?", yes, she was and I have proof thanks to the photos. A couple of my favorites are posted for you to see. (Click HERE to see more newborn photos!)

On the flip side, we had a small break this winter but now we are back at it, wedding season has started once again!  This past Saturday I had two friends of mine photograph a wedding of an awesome couple! I am so not ready to leave my newborn yet, therefore I am forever grateful that I have such awesome photographer friends that would cover a wedding for me! I cannot wait to post photos from the wedding, so keep your eyes peeled for those! 

And lastly, as you have all noticed as you have be navigating around the website...it's new! Yep, we have a new website.  A special thank you to Nathan Miller for the design and time spent with all my numerous questions. If you ever need a site built, Nathan is the guy to go to.  Not only is the website awesome, but he has helped me learn how to use all the tools available to me, which I am still learning but it will take time! :)

Enjoy the new site, stop by my guestbook and leave me message about your experience at your photo shoot or let me know what you would like to see in the near future.  AND, soon to come: a newsletter!!! YAY!
