Natalie and Skyler's Wabash Wedding (and a full day in the heat!)

On a particularly hot and sunny Saturday we spent a beautiful day photographing Natalie and Skyler on their special day. Natalie made the day so easy for us by providing us with a detailed schedule and outline of her desired shots. She had picked out several beautiful locations for shooting. They had a large bridal party with four adorable flower girls and ring bearers. With so many people and several locales, we had to move quickly to fit everything in before the ceremony. 

Everyone was a great sport, especially considering the 90 degree heat and the length of time we spent shooting and traveling to other locations. Of course a group break at a local smoothie shop helped lift spirits and keep everyone hydrated. Even when their borrowed vintage Ford Galaxie broke down, Skyler took it in stride. It was a joy working with such happy, complaint-free folks!

Natalie's interest in a photo journalistic style was a great match for our desire to capture the little moments and candid smiles that made up the beauty of the day. We had the pleasure of working alongside Christian, a friendly and cooperative videographer who was as concerned with us getting our shots as he was with his. It made documenting Natalie and Skyler’s wedding story a breeze. 

Thanks for the great memories and for choosing us as your wedding photographers!

Natalie & Skyler's Indianapolis Engagement

My last engagement session was a wonderful change up from the normal country/nature work I do in the Portland area. In fact, it caused me to realize how much of a bumpkin I've become. I don't spend much time in big cities, but with multiple city weddings coming up this summer, that should change! 

The White River State Park area is gorgeous and has previously been one of my favorite places in the area to shoot (see shots at the bottom to prove it) so we headed there first. We didn't intend to spend all our time shooting there, but it ended up being wonderfully fun so there was no need to go anywhere else! 

I can't wait to go back. Who else in Indy needs a good wedding photographer? :)  

By the way, Natalie and Skyler were the winners of my 2016 FREE wedding giveaway (blog post here) which meant their entire package cost them absolutely nothing! They will receive their wedding day coverage, engagement session, engraved flash drive, prints, at zero cost. I'm pretty excited to be able to offer this deal; thank you to all of my clients who have booked me so far, and thanks for the opportunity to create great images with you, Natalie and Skyler!
