Proposal at the Zoo – Indianapolis Proposal Photography

This is my 3rd proposal that I’ve had the joy of photographing in 3 weeks! Let me tell you, this never gets old!! I just love being able to capture this magical time for these new families in the making!

This stunning couple was pretty awesome. Meet Daniel and McKenzie! These two were straight out of a magazine spread… I mean just stunning and McKenzie didn’t even know she was going to have her picture taken. Daniel planned to propose at the Zoo in Indianapolis just outside the butterfly gardens. Only problem was that this Fall has been a cold rainy mess. He had a specific date he wanted to propose on so that the surprise would work. However there was a 100% chance of rain. We were going to do things as planned rain or not! But, when we arrived at the Zoo there was no rain! The whole proposal and pictures after were rain free. Then on our way home it started to downpour. These two had pretty perfect timing and McKenzie was completely surprised!

Make sure you check out the pictures of the ring too… it’s huge… and stunning!

Auterson Wedding – St. John Evangelist Catholic Church & Omni Severin Hotel in Indianapolis

Laura and Jacob tied the knot at the beautiful St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Indianapolis, IN. It’s a stunning church, but I’m a little bias as I was also married there. They were surrounded by their friends and family afterwards for their reception at the Omni Severin Hotel which is also right downtown Indianapolis. These two couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather or a smoother wedding. They left lots of time in their schedule for pictures which means we have lots of stunning pictures from their wedding day. So check out this long blog post filled with images from this lovely wedding day!

I have so many favorite parts about this wedding. I love that the bride and groom didn’t see each other until walking down the isle. Since it was an early Catholic service we will had tons of time for pictures. I love that the groom surprised the bride by playing and singing a song for her. I love that these two snuck away from dinner for 10 minutes for some stunning rooftop sunset pictures – stunning! Really I loved everything about the wedding.

Michelle & Michael – Wedding at the Mavris in Indianapolis, Indiana

This wedding has a special place in my heart. Not only because it included an adorably sweet and easy going couple who were a joy to work with, but also because they got married at one of my favorite venues. I like it so much- it’s where I got married. If you haven’t heard of the The Mavris Arts & Events Center in Indianapolis you should check it out for sure. It’s a stunning wedding venue.

This couple had both their wedding and reception at The Mavris. They had a lovely outdoor ceremony in the rooftop garden followed by a lively reception with friends and family.

The bride once lived in an adorable part of Indy where the streets are lined with brick and there are lots of old and adorable homes and beautiful gardens. You will see that they chose to do some of their bridal party pictures in this area of town. They also did some pictures downtown on the circle. I hope you enjoy the pictures of these two and their stunning wedding!

Sandy & Justin Married at the Indiana Historical Society – Indianapolis Wedding Photographer

This wedding was a special one. The bride is an old coworker of mine (and now friend) back when I worked in corporate America. I got to hear all the stories day-by-day of this love story. I got to hear the good and the bad (but mostly good). It was fun being able to hear/watch this love story grow and turn into what it is today – a lovely married couple. I couldn’t be more excited for these two!!

The couple was married at the lovely Indiana Historical Society. If you haven’t seen this venue – it’s grand and stunning!! Another fun thing about this wedding was that the groom and groom’s men wore kilts. This was a first for me but they were super fun to photograph!

Alanna and Joey – Mormon Temple Wedding Carmel, Indiana

The new Mormon temple was just built in Carmel, Indiana. It’s a beautiful structure with immaculately groomed gardens around it. So when Alanna and Joey asked me to photograph their wedding I couldn’t have been more excited! The Mormon church doesn’t allow photography inside the temple, but we were able to get some stunning pictures on the grounds of the temple.

This sweet couple couldn’t have been more prefect for each other. They balanced each other well. It was clear that these two were excited to be together.

After the ceremony an intimate group of friends and family were invited to The Cerulean Restaurant to continue the celebration.

Indiana Historical Society Wedding Photography – Healy Wedding

Meet Keith and Shelby. These two are prefect for each other! Shelby has a smile that is contagious and Keith is fun loving and caring. Their loving spirits and upbeat personalities made for a great wedding day and a fantastic party afterwards!

Their wedding took place at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana Historic Society in downtown Indianapolis.  They had their ceremony outside the Indiana Historical Society on the canal. The ceremony was followed by a reception inside the grand ballroom. It’s a lovely venue for a lovely couple!

The theme for their wedding was Hurling. If you haven’t heard of this before it’s an Irish game that is similar to field hockey. Keith and Shelby met playing this game and Keith had just won a huge Hurling competition. It was only fitting for them to have this as the theme for their wedding day.
