I was impressed with Sterling from first moment we met. She’s a creative and artistic young lady who also possesses a tremendous sense of humor and killer sense of style. She hopes to further her creative pursuits by attending film school or being accepted into a good film and photography program in college (hopefully in NYC or California).

She describes herself as a laid back, super friendly, and creative photographer who also likes being around people, reading, and listening to music (she also tells me she is mildly obsessed with eating healthy). She is a track athlete who is also working on creating new content for her YouTube channel (she’s very talented). She is fiercely loyal to her family and friends and would do anything to help somebody in need.

While there are so many more things I love about Sterling, her favorite answer was a response to my question: If you could have a super power, what would it be? She told me: “A super power I would love to have is giving great mental health to anyone who needs it. There’s such a big stigma around mental health, and our mind is our biggest weapon.” I love this so much. I wish Sterling the best of luck this year and in the future!

Jameson and Rachel’s Indianapolis wedding day turned out to be perfect. I was really impressed with Rachel’s planning skills and attention to all of the details on her wedding day. I’ve known Rachel for many years and can say that she is one of the kindest and most joyful people that I know. She is also an incredible teacher who goes out of her way to challenge and inspire her students on a daily basis. She found the perfect match in Jameson. He’s a tremendous guy who is intelligent, hard working, kind, and somehow seems to fit perfectly with Rachel.

One of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer is the opportunity to capture one of the most important days of a couple’s life. This particular wedding was incredible on so many levels. I have no doubt that God has some big plans in store for Rachel and Jameson in the future. I love this couple an feel very blessed they asked me to photograph their wedding day.

One of my favorite things about being a senior photographer is getting to know really awesome seniors like Mackenzie. She is a humble who thrives as a leader in school, athletics, and other areas of her life.

She describes herself as an outgoing person who loves meeting new people. She’s a talented lacrosse player with aspirations to play in college (she’s really talented). At school, she is the Student Body Historian, Treasurer for Students in Action, she serves on her School Improvement Committee and she is even in a focus group with the superintendent of her school district, and is also a member of the CrossFit Club among other clubs.

For fun, she’s always up for anything… game night, making dinner together, hammocking, or grabbing a cup of coffee with friends. She loves any AJR song and loves to hang out with her friends as much as possible.

I’m excited to see where her future takes her. Thanks for letting me capture your senior portraits and best of luck to you Mackenzie!

Caitlin and Arick celebrated their wedding day at one of my favorite new venues, the Barn at Zyntango Farm in Whitestown, Indiana. Even though it was one of the warmest wedding days I have photographed in quite a while, it didn’t put a damper on the day at all. It was a day filled with laughter, fun with family and friends, and also a day that symbolized a couple who has truly put God at the center of their lives and now marriage. I’ve known Arick, Caitlin, and their families for many years and I couldn’t use enough adjectives to say how much I appreciate, love, and respect them. The day was a huge celebration and we were grateful for the opportunity to photograph their wedding day.2018-06-23_0001.jpg
