Mr. & Mrs. Mason | A Wedding Story | Melissa DeWitt Photography | Fort Wayne Indiana Wedding Photographer

The weather was dreary but their smiles were everything but. These two never skipped a beat. Even though the wedding and ceremony quickly became an indoor event, Andrew and Erin enjoyed every second of it. The weather changes, but their love doesn't. It was such the perfect representation to the beginning of their marriage. Their bond, their friendship...it was something amazing to witness.

Harvey + Jamie | A Wedding Story | Melissa DeWitt Photography North Eastern Indiana Wedding Photographer

If you know me well, you know that I have this crazy love for vw buses. Last summer I actually finally purchased one and last weekend I photographed my bus's previous owner's wedding. I totally enjoy the people I meet and the places I get to go just because I have a camera and photograph people. I am so blessed to have this as my job.

The Blackwell Family | Lifestyle Family Session | Melissa DeWitt Photography Northeast Indiana

Their pudgy baby fingers, the way they kissed you with drool and all, their hugs that seemed to choke you, and just all the love and innocence that poured out of their young hearts towards you as their parent. I love capturing these precious moments for families...the moments that will take a parent back and get them right in the feels.

Mr. & Mrs. DeWitt | A Wedding Story | Fort Wayne Indiana Wedding Photographer

I have never photographed a family members wedding before. It was so strange knowing almost everyone there but also a lot of fun... Ooh and let's not forget the 3 year old shadow I had half the time (my lovely daughter who was also one of the flower girls)....I am not sure how many times I stepped on her! It was so wonderful being there surrounded by family and witnessing these two tie the knot.

Mr. & Mrs. Cooper | A Wedding Story | Fort Wayne Indiana | Chicago Indiana Wedding Photographer

As Jason and Ashley are sun bathing in Aruba, and probably sipping on something coconut flavored..I am geeking out over here with excitement to post their blog!

I loved everything about their wedding day. The details were gorgeous and so extremely planned out. (I learned that the bride planned all the details herself!) Her colors of pastel teal and pink were to die for. Everything so elegantly and beautifully pieced together, even the couple (< I mean they were just perfect).

Mr. & Mrs. Petre | A Wedding Story | Fort Wayne, Indiana Wedding Photographer

Their wedding day was beautiful as well and days before their big day we all were keeping our fingers crossed for no rain! Mother Nature was nice to us, minus the heat, but no rain! We had full sun during all their photos (which if you are a photographer reading this you know how we just love full sun, right? ;)  ) BUT we did have a pretty little sunset during the reception! I'm so happy they let me pop them outside to snap a few shots during sunset!

A Mum and Her Daugthers | Columbia City Indiana Family Photographer

There is nothing sweeter than loving on your kids and having them show love back. I really loved this session. It was like a breath of fresh air. This mama and her daughters adored each other, it was perfect. Even though her daughters are not little any more, they are still little to her....as any child is to their mother.  Each image just radiates joy and love....and to be able to have images that show those emotions is priceless to a mother.
