Jennifer & Patrick, wedding

A beautiful couple and some beautiful weather — what more can you ask for?  They show again why it’s a great idea to do the first-look, or ‘reveal’ moment :)  Then we had a little time to make some of  my favorite photos across the street at a vintage nursery in Delphi.  Later they entered the ballroom (mom’s former workplace) on the Boilermaker X-tra Special, and Jen was serenaded by Patrick with his best man on the piano. My favorite sidebar is that Patrick’s last name is Ruhl (pronounced “Rule”), so of course they were pronounced husband and wife as …

Rachel & Joseph, photobooth

Here are some highlights from the photobooth on Saturday:  pelts, hats, glasses, and plenty of frames!  There’s even a lovable penguin.  They provided all of the props, and let us take over the living room because of the rain  :)   For more, you can see the full set in my store. Enjoy,

Danielle & Tony, engagement shoot

We were lucky to have a nice clear day in December to do their shoot.  Danielle loves Christmas, and although we’re *still* waiting on snow… I think we got a little holiday/winter feel with the shoot  :)   Merry Christmas you two,
