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. :)

Little Miss Lottie ~ 6 months

Lottie is a "grow with me" baby. THAT means that I have seen her since she was a newborn and have watched her grown into the smiley little girl she has become! I am not exaggerating by saying she is smiley....Lottie literally smiled and bopped up and down the entire session!

Caiden turns 2!

I found it really adorable that his favorite toy at the moment is a "digger". Well, that is what he calls it, any way.  So, during our session he played his "digger" and repeated "digger, digger, digger" most of the session. It was seriously adorable! Needless to say, the "Digger" made its debut during his session and now has photographs of its own.  :)

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.

Me, 4 years ago...then and now.

When I first started my business four years ago, there were soooo many times I wanted to throw in the towel.  I couldn't figure out how to get my images the way I wanted them to look and I didn't' know how to shoot in manual. I worked out of my sun porch/studio which was barely enough room.   At the time, you bet I was thankful, but it was SO HARD figuring it all out. Some of you can probably relate.

Cystic Fibrosis: Mini Session

With the image above, I used a slight texture from KML Creatives, from her Grunge Collection . If you have been following  my work, you may know that I use many action sets, cloud overlays, and textures from KML. Why do I use them?? Because they are awesome and work well with my workflow.

Jordan - the nice mean guy :)

Jordan's senior session was a lot of fun. Probably one of my favorites. At the beginning of his session, Jordan told me he was a smiler so trying to get him to do a serious face was a tad difficult, but he fooled me, he was good at it! So good at it, that during proofing we renamed his serious face to the "nice mean smile"! :)
