Brantley is 1 year old!

There is something about little Brantley that just captivates me and makes me want to squeeze him to pieces.  It's probably those big, round, beautiful blue eyes.  Keeping up with him on the playground was a bit of a challenge but I had fun following him around and capturing these images.  I'm betting when you look at them, you'll want to reach in and pinch those chubby cheeks.  Happy 1st birthday, Brantley!

Emily and Andrew are married!

Emily and Andrew's wedding, as beautiful as it was on it's own merit, was extra special to me because they're family and near and dear to my heart.  And because I know them and I know how perfect they are for each other, it just felt right for them to get married.  Their pastor said it best in his message to them...something to the effect that because he knows them well and knows the faith they both have, he has every confidence that theirs will be a successful and lasting marriage.
Emily and Andrew, I'm so happy for you both!  Thank you for allowing me the honor of photographing your special day.  It was a beautiful and happy event, for sure.

I've always been envious of Emily's peaches & cream complexion, but she was especially radiant on this day...smiling from the inside out.

Emily and Andrew chose to have their first look on the walking bridge at the train station in Lafayette.  They were so cute - both couldn't wait to see the other.  They also couldn't wait to wrap their arms around each other, which could have been partially due to the freezing temperatures, but I don't think so.

Emily and I were concerned about it being a little drab to take photos outside (the month of March can be pretty dreary in Indiana), but Andrew did some location scouting and this historic home turned out to be a great backdrop for bridal party photos.  Good job, Andrew!

Aren't these girls all beautiful?!  Emily joked that that is why she chose them for her bridesmaids.

Thank you to my assistant, Tom Hall, for grabbing this shot of the handsome groom.

Mr. and Mrs. Pohl!

Emily and her mom spent many, many hours searching for and putting together just the right elements for each table's centerpiece.  Their hard work was evident as the whole ballroom looked just beautiful and all the attention to details showed.

What a fun night!  I kinda wish we could do it again.

Welcome back from Mexico, Mr. and Mrs. Pohl!  Thank you again for choosing me to preserve your big day in photographs.  I love you both and I wish you a lifetime of love, happiness, and abundant blessings!

Emily and Andrew- a sneak peek

They're most likely enjoying the last day of their honeymoon right now.  Because they probably don't have internet access, I'm waiting until Emily and Andrew return home to post the big group of photos from their wedding.  But here's a sneak peek at one of my favorite images from their big day.
