Claudia Senior Session | Evansville Indiana Photography

Claudia is a senior at Mt. Carmel High School.  She loves to travel; just days before these pictures were taken she was in St. Thomas exploring the islands with her mom, Sarah. I was so jealous of her gorgeous sun kissed glow! For this portion on her senior pictures, Claudia went with an adorable boho vibe, and I'm loving the colors and all the hats! But seriously, this babe makes hats look so perfect, and be sure to check out all her accessories! I die! 

We shot all around Mt. Carmel; she's a diverse babe but we wanted to make sure to pay tribute to the place that raised her! We celebrated those beautiful brick streets, Friday night football games, and hometown vibes. But next weekend we're headed to Chicago to celebrate her adventurous side, and I couldn't be more excited! 

Claudia and Sarah, thank you so much for choosing me to document this fun season in Claudia's life! I'm SO excited for her next session in Chicago! Next weekend is going to be so much fun!

Katy and Hubert Family Session | Evansville Indiana Photography

Katy and Hubert own Farmer and Frenchman, an incredible winery in Henderson, Kentucky. They've passionately and proudly created not only a destination restaurant and winery, but an outstanding wedding venue as well. I always love working with them!

When Katy was pregnant with Ayla, she called to book family pictures for her soon-to-be family of four. We waited until Miss Ayla was a little older to get those super cute baby smiles and the session turned out perfect! To me, the key to family pictures is keeping everyone engaged. So we planned a picnic in the vineyards.

As Hubert and Katy walked hand in hand around the property, I noticed instantly how ardently they love one another. Hubert whispered sweet words of encouragement, and joy rolled out of Katy in giggles. What an amazing example for their kids to see as they grow.

Katy, Hubert, Luca, and Ayla: thank you so much for inviting me into your home and letting me photograph your family! The intimate love your family shares is a joy to witness.

Watching Katy and Hubert talk to Luca about how they make the wine and when it's the best time to harvest the grapes was so precious. Luca loves listening to stories. His normal whirlwind self gets very quiet and soaks up everything. I love how at this age he's filled with deep wonder and curiosity!

Stephen and Rianna Engagement | Evansville Indiana Photography

I met Rianna and Stephen in downtown Newburgh, Indiana for their engagement session. They walked hand in hand with their sweet pup and danced in the light, and it was easy to see just how in love they are!  It was a rare day for August in Indiana; there was a lovely breeze and the light was total perfection as it peeked in and out of the clouds.

Can we take a quick second to talk about Rianna's ring?! It's to die for! The artful design, vintage inspiration, and double halo around the pear has me gushing! Stephen did an amazing job working with a local jeweler to have it designed into absolute perfection! Custom rings are my favorite and I love hearing all about how they come together! 

Rianna and Stephen, we're wishing you all the best as you begin the wedding planning process! Cherish the sweet season of anticipation of being engaged; it's such a fun part of the process. It was a pleasure to photograph this exciting time in your life!

Eric and Nicole: Positano, Italy | Positano, Italy Photographer

Eric and Nicole are a perfect pair. They live in Chicago and love to travel. This is the second time they've been to Europe together! Europe in May is kind of their thing and this time they traveled to Rome and the Almafi Coast. I met up with them in Positano which is nestled on west part of the Almafi Coast. Looking up from the black sand beach, the houses cascade up - looking like a vivid watercolor painting, so romantic. 

Positano is the kind of place that tugs at your heart and leaves you missing it the moment you leave. But you know what even more lovely than Positano itself? Running into great friends while you're there! When Eric and Nicole told Dakota and I about their trip I remember thinking how amazing it sounded! I had no idea I'd be there with my friend Alissa at the same time!

Once I found out our trips would overlap, we decided to meet up for a quick dinner and mini photoshoot. After our shoot we had dinner at Rada, which was exceptional. The restaurant is built into the cliff, overlooking the ocean. On this particular night the waves were incredibly large and we watched them crash into the rocks throughout dinner.  After, we were quickly seated and... spoiled (They put our purses on a tufted foot stool so they wouldn't touch the ground, #princesstreatmeant  dinner started with surprise amuse-bouche and ended with a series of tiny desserts. It was the perfect meal for the perfect surprise photoshoot! 

Eric and Nicole, it was so much fun seeing you in Italy! Thanks for letting me sneak in a photoshoot during your vacation! Dakota and I can't wait to celebrate with you in St. Thomas in December!

Ashton and Justin: Newburgh Engagement | Evansville Indiana Wedding Photographer

I shot Ashton and Justin's engagement photos along the Newburgh riverfront, and as they strolled along the pathways downtown with their two pups, Justin looked affectionately at Ashton with so much adoration in his eyes.

Justin proposed to Ashton on the beach in Hilton Head, South Carolina, and it rained right during the proposal so when it started to drizzle during their engagement session, they both knew it was meant to be! As sunset was quickly approaching, the golden rays of light shined through the light sprinkle of rain that was delightfully similar to the day they got engaged. I'm thrilled to share the outcome: these dreamy romantic images!

Ashton and Justin, photographing your engagement session was an honor. Your devotion to each other and your excitement to build a life with each other is absolutely captivating. I wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and puppies.

JoBeth and Jake | Kentucky Lake Engagement Photography

JoBeth and Jake held hands as they and Tank, their adorable service dog, made their way down the winding pathways at Kentucky Lake. Jake made JoBeth giggle with every different pose, and their love definitely shone through in their pictures. JoBeth told me before the session, "Jake has the ability to make me feel like the prettiest girl in the world. I never knew true love, till this man." As soon as I read that about them I completely melted and couldn't wait to shoot their engagement session!

We shot JoBeth and Jake's photos at Kentucky Lake, and it was an absolutely perfect evening! The sun glistened on the water as we watched sailboats go past, and JoBeth and Jake beamed with such pure love for one other, resulting in amazingly beautiful photos! They love to spend their free time at the lake house, so it was definitely appropriate that we held the session in their favorite spot!

JoBeth and Jake, I loved shooting your engagement session, an getting to know you both (and Tank!) a little bit better! I can't wait to show you the rest of your photos, and I'm so excited for your wedding!

Emily and Zeb | Evansville Indiana Wedding Photographer

Zeb choked back tears as Emily walked down the aisle towards him. He kissed her hand and she grinned from ear to ear while they anxiously awaited the moment they would officially become man and wife.

Emily and Zeb met at USI while they were both studying to be biology majors. They bonded over study sessions, and became close friends. They eventually fell for each other, and I think they are a perfect example of how beautiful falling in love with your best friend, and lab partner, can be!

Emily and Zeb had their ceremony at the gorgeous St. Anthony Catholic Church in Evansville. I love shooting here because of the high ceilings and gorgeous decor! After the ceremony, we headed to Bauerhaus for the reception. Not only is the inside of the building great for photos, the outside and surrounding land is covered in gorgeous spots to sneak in some private photos with the bride and groom!

Emily and Zeb, I am so thrilled that I had the chance to be a part of documenting your love story! I hope your honeymoon was magical, and I can't wait to watch your love grow even stronger! I wish you all the love and happiness in the world, and I can't wait to show you your photos!

Katherine and Daniel | Evansville Indiana Wedding Photographer

We walked Daniel towards Katherine with a makeshift blindfold, making sure we didn't ruin the mystery with a sneak preview. As they kept their eyes shut tight, they squeezed each others hands and prayed together, preparing for the big moment to come. Today they vowed to spend forever together!

Katherine and Daniel were married at Victoria National Golf Course in Newburgh, Indiana, and the weather could not have been more perfect. I love shooting there because of the gorgeous scenery, unique spots like the foot bridges, and the gorgeous natural light inside and out! Katherine's an interior designer so the room was over the top perfect, adorned with a single rose at every place setting.  A small group of their closest friends and family attended and surrounded them with love. Katherine and Daniel's big day couldn't have been more perfect.

The two met after Katherine's mom introduced them, which is a good reminder to always listen to your mother. Katherine wanted to make sure we included her adorable dog, Odie, in some of her wedding photos so we, of course, got the cutest pictures of those two before the ceremony. Katherine and Daniel decided against having a bridal party, instead including their friends and family; keeping the ceremony and reception simple, beautiful, and intimate, just like their love.

Katherine and Daniel, your love is so honest, real, and pure.  I loved getting to know you both, and documenting your wedding day was such an honor.  I wish you nothing but happiness in the years to come! 

Lacey and Jon Maternity | Evansville Indiana Photography

Lacey and Jon have been married for three years next Monday! It seems like just yesterday I was photographing their engagement and wedding! When Lacey let me know she was pregnant, I was over the moon for her! They'd been dreaming of a sweet baby, and these two are going to make amazing parents.

I feel so blessed to be photographing all the excitement as they're preparing for sweet Ava's arrival. Lacey’s my cousin, so we’ve known each other forever and I’m personally praying that this sweet baby girl has gorgeous curls like her momma! Lacey was the most adorable baby!! 

Lacey and Jon are the perfect pair; they’re silly, sweet, and their love for one another is contagious. Their commitment and dedication to each other is going to make them amazing parents! I know their sweet baby girl is going to be surrounded with so much love! 

Lacey and Jon, I'm so happy for you two! I can't wait for Ava's arrival in September!

Elizabeth and Brad | Evansville Indiana Wedding Photography

We met with Elizabeth as she and her bridesmaids put on their finishing touches. Elizabeth gushed about how excited she was to open Brad's letter, and to meet him at the end of the aisle. Watching these two get married, I just couldn't stop myself from smiling the entire time. Good Shepherd Church was filled with so much love, not only from Elizabeth and Brad, but all of their friends and family too!

After the ceremony we headed out to The Discovery Lodge for the reception! I adore shooting at Burdette Park because of all the amazing light! One of my favorite parts of getting to know my couples is finding out their love story. Elizabeth and Brad have been friends for years. At first they told everyone, and themselves, that they were just best friends. But slowly things changed and they eventually started dating. They've been in love ever since! Elizabeth and Brad are both amazing people, but together they're perfect. I believe marrying your best friend is most people's dream!  These two are lucky enough to be living out that dream each day!

Elizabeth and Brad, I am so overjoyed for both of you! I am so thrilled you chose me to help you document your special day, and I can't wait to see what life has in store for both of you!
