I'm a photographer providing honest & authentic images that tell the stories of your connection
Hi, I'm Emily

Do you remember the couple who “proposed” to me to be their wedding photographer?  Yep, that’s Kelly & Adam! On top of the awesome proposal letter, their engagement session was nothing short of awesome, and their wedding proved to be just as lovely.

Kelly & Adam, thank you so very much for having us capture your day, the amazing hospitality, and a day full of laughter.  We are so happy for both of you and hope these images are cherished for years to come.

The only difficult part about shooting there was that it required I talk quietly or whisper.  For those of you who have been photographed by me, you know I’m not the best at being super quiet while I direct you. 🙂 Oops!Indianapolis-Wedding-Photographers-(63-of-142)Indianapolis-Wedding-Photographers-(65-of-142)Indianapolis-Wedding-Photographers-(66-of-142)Indianapolis-Wedding-Photographers-(68-of-142)Indianapolis-Wedding-Photographers-(69-of-142)Indianapolis-Wedding-Photographers-(73-of-142)Indianapolis-Wedding-Photographers-(74-of-142)Indianapolis-Wedding-Photographers-(76-of-142)Indianapolis-Wedding-Photographers-(81-of-142)Indianapolis-Wedding-Photographers-(87-of-142)Indianapolis-Wedding-Photographers-(88-of-142)Kelly had hoped and hoped for snow–she got her wish!  It was beautiful out, we couldn’t resist stepping outside for a few photos. They all were such troopers and didn’t complain once!

  1. I definitely went to high school with Adam and my sophomore year after a choir concert I was backing out of a parallel parking spot and I definitely ran into his car and broke his front license plate cover. At least I think that was him! Regardless he was super nice about it and when my mom offered to buy him a new license plate cover he turned it down because he’s just that nice.

      Oh how funny, Jackie! It wouldn’t surprise me if it were him–the fact that he turned down your mom’s offer, is something I could definitely see him doing. It’s so, so kind!

  2. Beautiful romantic photos
