2020 has been a year we will never forget. Although we faced many challenges, I have renewed hope that the future will be stronger than ever.

Thank you to my old and new clients who have asked me to be their photographer this year. I was blessed to connect with many new people (and now friends) through photography this year.

I was especially impressed with many of the people who successfully navigated the various challenges of 2020 in planning their weddings. Because of Covid-19, many of the couples I worked with had to reschedule weddings, continually change wedding day plans, and deal with a host of other challenges. Each wedding during 2020 was truly amazing and special. I’m grateful that each of these couples asked me to be their wedding photographer.

Finally, I hope you are all doing well! Truthfully, being a photographer has helped me connect with so many incredible people throughout the years. I continually feel blessed by the friendships I have made over the last 10+ years as a photographer. Best of luck to you as you prepare for 2021 and beyond.

Kevin and Gabi’s wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect. After a week of rain, wind, and cold weather, they were blessed with a beautiful sunny day. It’s been an insanely busy fall and I will be posting more photos soon from their wedding day. I also enjoyed shooting another wedding at the Palomino Ballroom in Zionsville. Excellent venue.

I end every wedding day feeling extremely tired but more than anything, I always feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude for the opportunity to capture one of the most important days in the lives of the bride, groom, and the their family and friends. This day could not have been more special. I was also Gabi’s high school counselor and have known Gabi and her family for many years. I’ve been tremendously impressed with Kevin and think this couple has a very bright future ahead of them.

    Aaron - My daughter Haley is looking for Senior Photos, curious as to what your cost is and would be looking forward to meeting you!ReplyCancel

Ian and Lydia’s wedding day turned out to be perfect. Although they had to push their reception to the fall (due to Covid-19), their wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect. First, God gave them a perfect weather day. Secondly, they had their family and a few friends in attendance. Third, their attitude towards half their day wedding day being cancelled/postponed couldn’t have been more positive. I came away from the wedding feeling so impressed and encouraged by Lydia and Ian and the people in attendance.

This was another day where I felt beyond blessed to be a wedding photographer in capturing a special moment between my new friends Lydia and Ian. Best wishes to you both! I look forward to taking photos at your wedding reception in the fall.

It was a perfect wedding day with Ellie and Kyle. I also love photographing weddings at the Scottish Rite Cathedral. First, this couple is amazing. Their fun and upbeat personalities made the day unforgettable. They not only love each other, but they are also best friends. Their family and friends also made this day incredibly special. The entire vibe of the wedding day was positive and fun with many sincere and special moments.

Again, I was blessed to be the wedding photographer and eternally grateful they asked me to capture their day. As a high school counselor, it’s always extra special to photograph a wedding for a former student and family that I have worked and connected with in the past (I love the Roederer family).

The wedding was planned to perfection. It was really the kind of day that reminds me why I love being a wedding photographer. Shout out to Save the Date Planning (Save the Date Event Planning, LLC) for your planning skills! In addition, all of the other vendors we worked with were amazing.
