Chris + John – Indianapolis Conrad Hotel Wedding

On October 26th, I got the chance to spend the day with Chris and John. The ceremony was at the beautiful St. John’s Church downtown Indianapolis and the reception was at the Conrad Hotel downtown as well. It was a loads of fun. Both Chris and John stayed very calm and were so comfortable to work with.

Amanda and Stephanie did an amazing job with the reception at the Conrad. And it is always great working with my friend Joel from Track Seven. I think my favorite part were all the toasts. They had several and they were all very good with heart and emotion. Thanks for the memories and best of luck for many years to come.

Heather + Ryan – Zionsville Plum’s Upper Room

When I first met Heather and Ryan I could tell their wedding would be full of meaning and purpose. Heather said they wanted to have a smaller wedding without some of the glitz and glamour and focus on what joining two people together is all about.

The ceremony at St. Joan of Arc church was beautiful.  It’s probably one of the biggest churches I’ve filmed in.   And the reception in Zionsville at the Plum’s Upper Room was perfect.  It was actually the first time I’ve been to downtown Zionsville and wow, that is a cool area.  If you get a chance you should check it out.

It was awesome spending the day with Heather and Ryan, I was so comfortable throughout the day and it was so easy to work with them.  I hope you enjoy this for years to come.  Congrats Heather and Ryan.

Christa + Will – Chicago {Garfield Park Conservatory}

I got a chance to film my first wedding up in Chicago for Christa and Will’s big day. It was a blast. We took a bus around the city for photos and ended up at the Garfield Park Conservatory for the ceremony and reception. It was beautiful. It was a bit a chilly for an outdoor ceremony, but they passed out blankets to the guests and it was worth it for the photos and video.
I love it when couples write their own vows and you’ll see they added plenty of humor and emotion during the ceremony. I’m so thankful Christa and Will found me to be apart of their day. Congratulations!

Jennifer + Chris – Bloomington Wedding

I was excited to film a wedding in Bloomington. I was such a beautiful fall day and the wedding was on the campus of IU. It was perfect.
I had a great day hanging out with Chris and Jennifer. It was obvious how much they were in love. Chris moved back to Bloomington and it wasn’t long until he met Jennifer and from that moment the rest is history. They got married in the cutest smallest chapel I’ve ever seen. It will be a wedding I’ve never forget. It was awesome working with Lisa Berry Photography, she was shooting on medium format film, which I’m sure turned out amazing. I’m so thankful Chris found me to be apart of their day.

Brooke + Scott – Conrad Indianapolis Wedding

About a year ago, Brooke was a bridesmaid in Erin and Andrew’s wedding up in Lafayette and that is how she found me. Now it is her day. You can tell Brooke and Scott were meant for each other and are happy. This was a really fun wedding. Both the ceremony and reception were at the Conrad in downtown Indianapolis, which made it nice to be in one place. It is always nice working with a wedding planner and Drew from Suore Events did an amazing job. It’s neat to get to know the couple throughout the day, for example I didn’t know at one time Brooke was the leading shot blocker in the nation for basketball. Congrats Brooke and Scott, thanks for having me along on your wedding day.

Super 8 Film – 2012 Destin Vacation

We took Nikk’s grandpa’s old super 8 camera along with a couple rolls of film down to Destin, Florida. I was excited to get the film back from Yale Film & Video. They did a great job processing and transferring the footage, and being an old camera I had no clue how it would turn out. It’s fun shooting film, there is a mystery about it.
