Mother’s day was two weeks ago and there were many celebrations.  I am a humble mother of two and along with spending time with my mother and mother in-law, I was lucky to get some much needed rest!  On the day before, however, I got to spend sweet time with special ladies whom I hold dear to my heart.  Parent Life is an organization that seeks to empower, equip and encourage young single mothers.  Once a week I have the privilege of serving with a group of young women in my very own neighborhood and it has been life changing for me.  I went looking to give back but what I’ve gained from the other leaders and the young women themselves has been amazing.   Parent Life is one of the highlights of my week!  In honor of these strong young women we held a Mother’s day celebration.  There was food, games, gifts, nail painting and I was given the opportunity do  some photography.   It was such an honor to be able to use my gifting to bless them.   I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to get photos back after a shoot!  Looking forward to next year!  Until then enjoy a few photos of my friends and their sweet babes!

Allow us to introduce Ali and Clay.   It was an honor to be a part of their day!  

The forecast predicted that it would rain all day but to our surprise,  it waited until their wedding was over!  As we prepared to leave that morning it was raining but on our way to Ali’s parents’ house, the rain stopped.  We did not see another raindrop until their send off  and it could not have been more perfect.   Surely this small detail will be told to their kids and kids’ kids.

Something about their ceremony was very powerful and moving.  They made it very clear that their union was not simply about them but it was about the God who brought them together and sharing that love with others.   As members or their bridal party gave speeches one common theme was that these two care deeply about others.  David and I would totally agree with that!  The little time we spent with them we also felt like they truly took interest in getting to know us as learned more about them.  If they can translate that selflessness  to their marriage they have a long wonderful road ahead of them.  Now, enjoy a few moments we were able to capture of their wedding day.

This downtown Indianapolis engagement session was beautiful.  We were blessed with lovely evening weather but this couple was beautiful inside and out.   Deveron and Fanesse were so much fun to shoot!  As you’ll see in their photos there is lots of laughter and love.  I mean seriously these two were all smiles!  It was such a privilege to be in the presence of their love.   It’s always exciting when our friends are a little adventurous and they were just that!     It was sad to hear that they live miles apart until they get married.  I’m sure this only builds the anticipation to say I DO!    We really are looking forward to their wedding this summer.  It is sure to be truly special.  As we all await their big day, here are some moments from our time together!

It is my pleasure to introduce to you Andrew and Marley.  These two are the sweetest couple!   As one of the first weddings for us this year they truly reminded us of why we love capturing weddings. They were so wonderfully in love and it showed.  It’s not often you meet a couple whose story begins with them being childhood friends.  How beautiful to marry your best friend.   Their love was so strong that they had not just one but two ceremonies and we had the privilege of capturing them both.  One of their stunning venues was Indianapolis’s very own Neidhammer Coffee Co.  If you are in search of a timeless venue with rich character, Neidhammer is all that and more.  But enough from me, please enjoy this glimpse into the beginning of their happily ever after.
