Kristi and Michael - 8-11-07

On August 11th, I was blessed to be a part of Kristi and Michael's wedding day.

Kristi is the kind of bride you see in all the bridal magazines -- a complete fairytale princess, in her beautiful dress:

The two of them made their grand entrance at the reception, and immediately cut the cake:

The wedding was held at St. Luke's United Methodist church in Indianapolis, and the reception was at The Fountains in Carmel.

Alternative Bridal -- Model Session

Last weekend, I spent some time doing an "Alternative Bridal Session" with Stacie, who is one of my favorite models.

Alternative Bridals are something new for the bride who is more daring than most, who wants to celebrate her wedding and her marriage with a fun, edgy fashion session. I've heard these sessions called "Trash The Dress" sessions, but the object isn't to ruin your dress, it's just to do some of the things you wouldn't necessarily take time for in your busy wedding day schedule.

Here are a few images from the session with Stacie:

I'm looking for brides who are interested in this type of session, so give me a call if an Alternative Bridal session sounds fun to you!

Katie and David -- Engagement Session

Ann Landers is quoted as saying "Love is friendship that has caught fire."

Katie and David were friends for years, beginning in highschool youthgroup and on into college. Three years ago, their friendship "caught fire" and a few months ago they called me to see if I might like to photograph their wedding in 2008. Today we did their engagement session at the Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve near Valpariso IN.

Here's a quick sneak peek at their session:

Their wedding ceremony will be held at Countryside Christian Church in Michigan City, and I can't wait to be a part of it!

Amanda and John -- Engagement Session

August evenings in Indiana are hot. It's a fact of life! So when Amanda and John suggested that they'd like to have their engagement session at the Mississinewa Reservoir, I jumped at the chance.

The sky was beautiful and we couldn't have chosen a better evening to spend together for their session. Take a peek!
