The temperature was in the single digits, but at least it hadn’t dipped below zero. There was a layer of snow on the ground from the previous day, and all of downtown Indianapolis looked stunning dressed in white. Standing out in the cold in front of the Indiana Statehouse, John held Angela lest she become […]

The leaves had faded from a vibrant green to a muted, burnt orange.  On a sidewalk in White River Park, Grant held Amanda’s hand and looked at her lovingly. The breeze tugged lightly at the ribbon hanging from Amanda’s bouquet. It was a beautiful moment. I realized I wanted to shoot something a little different. […]

The ivy hung down over the the top of the trellis, vines creeping back down toward earth, reaching to where Jessica and Pat stood underneath with their bridal party. This small bridal party looked ensconced in the greenery of the Inn at Irwin Gardens. Behind them, behind the brick wall that the ivy grew over, […]

Sunlight filtered through the leaves in a small copse of trees. Standing in the middle of the trees, backlit by the sun, Steve held Danielle around the waist. They looked into each others’ eyes and smiled, their mutual attraction unable to be contained even in front of a camera. I love these delightful moments. Steve […]

The light of the setting sun was just starting to wink out of existence and the white hydrangeas were fading to mere shadows. Ben held Zoe close to him, foreheads together and eyes closed in front of the hydrangeas. The two of them looked entangled no matter where they were or what they were doing, […]

The sun had already fallen below the rooftops of the buildings downtown, so I wouldn’t necessarily call this a sunset shot. Instead we set up a flash and placed it at the right distance and angle behind the Bing and Spike to give the same feeling and glow as a sunset shot. I couldn’t be […]
