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

It is always so special to us when we are able to photograph the same family multiple times. I met Barbara when we photographed her sister’s wedding in 2014. Then, in 2015 I photographed her younger sister’s senior portraits. 2016 was Barbara’s year! We just adore this family and are so, so lucky they trust us to capture these big milestones.

Barbara & Zach met while teaching in Africa – how cool is that?!  Because Africa (and the people they met there) played such a huge role in their relationship, they wanted to honor that on their wedding day. I loved all the little African touches–the incredibly awesome photo booth that Barbara’s dad made, the cookie favors, and the special video that was played as a surprise for the bride and groom from their African family. Such special little details tossed into this beautiful day. Indianapolis Wedding Photographers_1518Indianapolis Wedding Photographers_1519Indianapolis Wedding Photographers_1520Indianapolis Wedding Photographers_1521Indianapolis Wedding Photographers_1522Indianapolis Wedding Photographers_1523Indianapolis Wedding Photographers_1524

    No words can describe how special these images are! You and James are wonderful to work with, so creative, and we couldn’t be happier to have had you capture this day, engagements, Kaylene and Cory’s wedding, and Alex’s Senior pics too!
