Ashlee and Tylan

They grew up very close to each other; their families knew each other; the bride's aunt was the coach of the groom's mother.  With all those funny connections, they probably crossed paths a few times and didn't even know it.  But Ashlee and Tylan never met until Ashlee was in Pharmacy school at Purdue.  Since then they have each worked hard to make their individual dreams come true and they have worked hard together to make their dreams as husband and wife come true.  They even bought a house shortly before their wedding, so they're all set to begin their lives as Mr. & Mrs. Thompson!
The love and support for these two was apparent in the words spoken by their families and in the cooperative efforts to make their wedding such a special event.
Ashlee and Tylan, thank you so much for asking me to photograph your wedding.  It was a beautiful event and I was honored to be able to document your big day. I'm wishing for you a long and blessed life together!

Amanda - Class of 2015

Maybe it was the fact she didn’t know how to put on makeup because she doesn’t usually wear any.  Maybe it was the laughing fit we had when she almost got knocked out by a flying champagne cork.  Maybe it was her pretty hair and how adorable she looked in her sundress.   It’s hard to say what I loved most about Amanda and her photo session.  Whatever it was, I can tell you that I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her and hopefully capturing her carefree, “just enjoying life” attitude in these photographs.

Amanda and I hope to fit another photo session in before she graduates, so you’ll probably see more of her on the blog in the future.

Amanda, I know I don't need to tell you this, but I hope you enjoy every moment of your senior year!  I'll see you again before it's over...looking forward to it!

Kelsee and Jordan are married!

My original role at Kelsee and Jordan’s wedding was just to be a guest … one of the grandmothers.  As their date grew closer, however, Kelsee asked if I would be willing to serve as an “extra photographer” as well.   She may have thought I was just helping her out but this turned out to be a benefit to me, because when you have a couple as attractive as Kelsee & Jordan and a wedding as beautiful as theirs was, it makes for lots of beautiful photo opportunities. Being an assistant photographer was actually a role I really enjoyed.  Without the pressure of having to get the “required shots”, I felt more relaxed and free to be a little more creative with my photos than I might otherwise have been.
Kelsee and Jordan have been together for a long time and they’re a couple who just seems to fit together.  They are beautiful people, inside as well as out, and their wedding at the State House in Indianapolis was a gorgeous affair.

Love and congratulations to you, Kelsee and Jordan, and God’s blessings as you begin your life together in Texas!
