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.

An Hour with The Mundens

The other evening I hung out with my friends Jeremy and Dawn and their children. We didn’t really have anything planned, just took some shots around their home. It was a great night. Abby couldn’t stop smiling and Lucas hit ‘bombs’ with the baseball bat in the back yard. What a family full of love.

Kylene + Eric – Oak Hill Mansion

In August I got my chance to film my first wedding at the Oak Hill Mansion up in Carmel, Indiana. It is quite a place. The ceremony was out back with a beautiful wooded backdrop, while the reception was inside in their banquet hall. I don’t know the history about this house but it looks like at one time a family lived here.

Kylie and Eric are a special couple with the lord at the center of their hearts. They may have dated for longer than they excepted but this gave them time to put God in front of their lives. As you can see it was a happy, emotional day. The outside ceremony was beautiful to say the least. It was an extremely hot day, but it didn’t slow anything down. It was also great working with some talented photographers, Elizabeth Chapman and Cathy Satre. I think my favorite part of the day was watching the couple take a moment during the ceremony to pray and give thanks to God. I hope this is something Kylie and Eric can pull out from time to time to remember when it all began.
