Matt and Taylor // Shakamak, Indiana :  The morning of Matt and Taylor’s wedding it was already 90 degrees before noon…then you add in lots of indiana humidity…and you had a recipe for  a pretty crazy day of weather.  Luckily, Matt and Taylor had decided to do a first look…that way just incase there was some stormy weather later in the day…all the outdoor photos would be done.  So…after the first look and all the formal photos…it started to cloud up a bit…and the weather started dropping.  As the amphitheater filled with wedding guests under all the trees…the leaves starting falling…the wind started blowing and the air turned cold.  Unfortunately because Shakamak Park is in the middle of nowhere…no one had any cell service to check our radars to see what was coming.  Even without the radars…we all could “feel” it coming…we just didn’t know when it would hit…or how bad it would be.  So…Taylor and Matt decided to continue with the outdoor ceremony and hopefully we could get it finished before the storm hit.  As they were about to exchange rings a limb fell from the trees above and almost hit the bridesmaids…and that moment I remember Taylor looking at her dad and he jumped up and said let’s move this inside.  At that very moment the sky opened and the rain started to fall.  After everyone got moved inside…they continue to exchange rings…and made it official! :o)  I will say…Taylor and Matt were total champs that day.  From the extreme heat to the crazy summer thunderstorm…I never once heard them complain.  They just took it all in stride….they were just happy to have everyone there together and to be marrying eachother. :o)  I was an honor to be their (sticky, sweaty, and then wet) photographer. :o)  Enjoy some of my favorites from their day.

M + T // Whoa…your day seriously had the most extreme weather ever. From being like 99 degrees with 100% humidity (exaggerating of course..but it seemed that hot) and then to the temperature dropping at least 20 degrees and a huge hurricane/typhoon hitting. The weather that day was seriously so crazy. However, you guys were so laid back and casual about it. I never once heard either of you complain when we were out shooting in the extreme heat, and Matt had so much sweat running down his face it looked like he had just played an entire game of basketball. :o) And when the storm hit right in the middle of your ceremony you guys never once complained… It seemed like you guys were just so happy to be marrying each other and so happy to have all your friends and family around. :o) Thanks for making my job so fun (and sweaty)! ;o) – MC

Scott and Brianna // Terre Haute, Indiana : So…I know i’ve said this before..but seriously, do I not have the most beautiful clients ever?  Seriously…Scott could totally be on the front of Men’s Health or GQ or some other hot guy magazine..and Brianna?  Are you kidding me?  She’s freakin’ gorgeous. They are totally going to make super adorable babies one day. :o)

So..Brianna’s morning started off at the Hilton Garden Inn of Terre Haute with her mom, sister, and bridesmaids…and Scott’s morning started off at his family home with his parents, brothers, and nieces and nephews.  They decided to do a first look so we could get all the photos done beforehand…and then could just have fun and enjoy the rest of the night.  Their wedding day went super smooth and everything was absolutely perfect.  Enjoy some of my favorites from their day.

Clay and Laura // Terre Haute, Indiana : Clay and Laura’s wedding day started off pretty hot and muggy out.  They had planned a first look so that we could get all the family photos done beforehand…but because of the extreme heat they decided to wait until after the ceremony for the bride and groom and bridal party photos.  So…the day was going pretty smooth… We were able to quickly get the family photos done and then get back inside to cool off before the ceremony.  As the guests were being seated you could see the skies off to the North of us were getting pretty dark…and you could tell by the flag flying at the country club that it was starting to get pretty windy and even cool off a bit.  The ceremony continued on without a hitch…and off in the distance you could hear thunder..but so far no storms.  I kept peaking at the radar and it looked like the weather was going to stay North and maybe we would have just enough time to get our bridal party and bride and groom photos in.  After the receiving line finished up and the couple signed their marriage license, I quickly started lining up the bridal party….as I started to take a photo the rain started to come down and we had to make a mad dash into the reception.  Luckily, mother nature only let it rain for a few minutes…and about 10 minutes later we were outside finishing up our photos with some beautiful light. :o)  Enjoy some of my favorites from the day!

Brad and Brianne // Indianapolis, Indiana : So, if you’ve been a blog reader of mine for a while…then you’ve seen this beautiful couple before.  I shot Brad and Brianne’s engagement session last year at St. Mary’s and they had just adopted a cute little dog named Ganon.  I learned a lot about Brad and Brianne at their session… how much they loved their dog already…how much they loved the Packers. ;o)  Just kidding…I meant the Vikings. And..most importantly how much they loved each other.  It was so adorable seeing how they interacted with each other and made each other laugh and smile…and I specifically remember while editing their engagement photos my face was hurting from smiling so much. :o) So, I knew that their entire wedding day would be so much fun…however, I didn’t know that their family, friends, and bridal party would be just as cool as them.  From the minute we arrived to the hotel…to the minute we left that night after the sparkler exit…I don’t think there was one minute that Kelsey and I weren’t having fun.  Brad and Brianne completely trusted me with their wedding day…any request I had for a location or a pose or anything…they did it instantly without any hesitation.  Even later in the evening…after a “few” drinks (them, not me! haha)..they still trusted me when I suggested that they stand outside, in the dark, near a busy street, kissing each other for 30 seconds, while two…”possibly” drunk groomsmen run around them with lighted sparklers. :o)  And because they trusted me….it let me relax, have fun, and do my job. <3 I couldn’t have asked for anything more.  Enjoy some of my favorites from their day.

Alec and Jessica // During their engagement session Jessica and Alec were such pro’s in front of the camera.  Any posing tips or ideas I had, they were up for anything.  On the wedding day they totally didn’t mind that we walked all over Rose Hulman’s campus to find some great light on a very sunny day. :o)  Enjoy some of my favorites from the day!
