Lauren & Jake’s fairytale wedding | Fort Wayne Wedding photographer | Jackson TN wedding photography

Jake & Lauren had a fantastic wedding day that I was so happy to be a part of.  Lauren’s excitement for everything was contagious and her joy, love and excitement to be marrying Jake was beautiful to see. These two make such a sweet couple and everyone involved seemed to genuinely share in their excitement.  It was a stress free day due in part well probably more than in part to Lauren’s dad’s impeccable planning.  I’ve never seen a dad so involved (i personally loved it), and I’m just saying he may have a future career in wedding planning after all this. Thanks so much for picking me to be a part of the celebration. It was the perfect day and a perfect start to this next phase of happily ever after.  Best wishes you two!

Loved photographing Monica at one of my favorite locations in Fort Wayne, Metea Park.  Monica was super laid back and fun to work with. I love seeing clients again and again and this family has been blessed with all kinds of gorgeous girls! Thanks for braving the stormy weather Monica hope your senior year is the best one yet!

I loved working with these two. What a treat to photograph two seniors in one night but twins– love it!  Callahan & Kreigh were so easy to work with, they were up for anything and I loved the style of their whole family— laid back, casual and honestly super cool.  Hope your final year of high school is the best one yet!

Such a pretty day for such a pretty couple.  I loved everything about this wedding. It helped that it was at my personal favorite venue Marian Hills Farm but it was so much more then the perfectly pale pink dress (BHLD gorgeousness), the perfect venue, the delicious food,  the rustic touches, or the gorgeous details.  It was a day filled with family, sincerity and genuine love.  I loved hanging with the ladies as Colleen’s sisters and nieces fawned over her.   Colleen’s nieces were adorable and their excitement contagious, I kind of wanted to bottle them up and take them to every wedding. :)  And while I didn’t get to spend as much time with Thomas I know one thing, well maybe two, that he’s a pretty cool cat and that he loves Colleen well.  Wishing you two all the best in marriage as you start this new piece of the journey. Thanks so much for picking me to photograph your first day together as Mr. & Mrs.  !

oh and a special thanks to my talented assistant for the day Stephanie it’s always fun to have her around!

I shouldn’t have favorites… but I do and this family is one of them!  I was so so sad to miss photographing Fiona as a newborn but was super excited to take some updated family photos for them as well as a few pics of Fi in celebration six months of sweetness.  It was a blast… as always.
