Oh boy, oh BOY am I excited to share these photos!!! Waaaay back in September I had the utmost privilege of shooting Rachel and Nathan’s wedding down in Greensburg, IN. Now many, MANY people have asked how I know these two very special people and always seemed shocked by my answer (I’m not sure why, I do run a business and all :)). Rachel actually contacted me after stumbling across my website and liking what she saw. Let me tell you, she sent me the SWEETEST email asking if I was available and I just knew I had to shoot her day! I met with her and Nathan not too long after and got the chance to learn what they had prepared for their big day. I loved EVERYTHING!! My photographer heart was so happy and I couldn’t wait for their day!!
My assistant Sarah and I started the day out with the guys, who were quite hysterical about making sure no one was “ruining” any shots
Next it was off to see the girls!!
TIME FOR THE DRESS!!! I got to see Rachel’s dress on my first visit with her and boy she looked as stunning in it as we all imagined she would!
Everyone is so stinking happy in this picture! Like I said, Rachel looked AAA-MAZING!
Rachel and Nathan elected to do a First Look, which I was super excited about (albeit a little nervous) because I hadn’t gotten the chance to shoot one yet. I loved it!!!
We had time for a couple of poses before the ceremony began. Man do I love a good silhouette!
MARRIED!!! See that look of relief on Nathan’s face in the photo on the right? That’s how every bride and groom feels at this point in their day
Things were running a little behind by the time we were ready to do portraits, so Sarah and I jumped into action getting everyone set. Brides take note: showing your photographer the place you’re set on doing your portraits before hand saves SO much time during those time crunches!!
But seriously, how cool is this old auction house Rachel found?! I was giddy she’d chosen this spot!
ONE SEXY BRIDAL PARTY HERE! Ow-oww!!!
Right beside the old auction building were some train tracks. I couldn’t resist
Rachel and Nathan’s reception was a little different, as they elected for everyone to have dinner in the church hall and then proceed out to another location for the party. So after dinner and toasts, we all headed out to Terre Vista Manor so Rachel could have her dream day by dancing under the stars
CONFETTI TOSS!!!!!! Oh man, this was so much fun to watch! I thought I was safely at the end of the “confetti zone,” but oh boy was I wrong! Several guests enjoyed pointing out how much I was covered in confetti
The second half of the reception was held on the beautiful property of some good friends of Rachel and Nathan. It was absolutely magical and the guests had a great time getting down!
Rachel and Nathan, thank you for allowing me to capture your special day!! It was an absolute blast and you two were a delight to work with. I wish you all the best in the years ahead!!!!
