Meet the Brown Family! We met Joanna 3 years ago at a workshop we held at our studio. The focus of the workshop was to promote community over competition, newborn, and maternity posing. Men and women cheering each other on and supporting one another in an otherwise cutthroat industry. We could sense right away that she was special, but in a short amount of time, like a workshop, how much can you really tell about people? In the years since that weekend, we’ve kept up with Joanna and her family on social media, and have learned that what we initially thought was special about her didn’t even scratch the surface. She radiates grace, and love, and overall goodness. She’s an old soul. She’s patient, loving, witty, and the very definition of sweet.
We were so grateful that she made the drive up to Lafayette with her children for a quick Mother’s Day session. They’ve overcome so much in the last couple of years as a family, and we felt it was necessary to document them and their love for each other. The kids were the absolute sweetest and they really enjoyed their photo time with mom. Joanna has been an absolute rock for herself and her family. She is setting the most beautiful example of how to live by faith. Each and every one of these amazing people have a piece of our hearts. We can only hope that they admire these moments as much as we admire their strength and resilience.
We took Joanna and the kids to Purdue Horticulture Park because it’s one of our favorite spots. Some of the trees were in bloom and we took advantage of them. Lauren really loved the flowering tree and we totally took advantage of putting her in it. After their session, they joined us for dinner and we got to catch up even more while the kids all got to know each other. They were best friends in just minutes! The Brown family will always hold a special place in our hearts.
It has been so great working with Chelsea and Zach! Their engagement session on the streets of Lafayette was really awesome. They were one of the first to be photographed in our new studio as well, and were totally patient and understanding with our big mess. The great thing is we were able to finish up our new studio and Chelsea was able to be our first bride to use the space to get ready in.
I just knew their wedding day was going to be incredible. When Chelsea showed me a photo of her dress, my jaw dropped! It was so stunning! I love all of the colors they chose and their decor was beautiful! The family came together to create the decor, florals, and the cake. A storm had come through the area a month before and destroyed the arbor at The Trails. Chelsea’s grandpa saved the day, building an entire new one from scratch.
We’re so excited to share some (well, a bunch really) of our favorites from this gorgeous fall day!
I was so excited to be a part of Hannah and Kyle’s wedding day! When we met with them, I felt an instant connection with them. They are a dynamic couple and have the best energy together. Arriving at the Moses Fowler mansion was like a fairy tale. Every detail had been so thoughtfully executed. Everyone seemed calm but giddy over everything that was happening. Hannah could not have been more gorgeous. Seeing her tear up at the mere thought of Kyle warmed my heart so much, and his eyes lit up every time her name was mentioned. From getting ready to dancing the night away, the day was absolute perfection. I hope you enjoy some of our favorite highlights from their beautiful wedding!
One of my many enjoyments as a photographer is meeting people across the country. I “met” Megan through a Facebook photography group a couple of years ago. It has been great watching her grow in her photography over the years and to build that special connection with her through a similar passion. Everything magically came together after her engagement and we finally were able to meet in person. I’m so glad I was able to travel hours away to celebrate with Megan, Cody, and their families!
Ceremony Venue: Columbiaville United Methodist Church
