#BeerWedding | Indiana Wedding Photographer

I’ve recently decided that I am, once again, a wedding photographer.  I had stopped for a bit, mainly just to catch my breath, but, now I am dipping my toe back in the water.  Well this past weekend, was my first back-in-the-wedding-business wedding.  And seriously, if I had to start somewhere, I couldn’t have picked a better bride and groom to start with.  I mean check out my beautiful bride!  Stunning.

Her beauty and talent (she’s an amazing journalist) she gets from her mother.  The headpiece?  Mom made it.  Yeah.

Of course she surrounded herself with a bevy of beauties!  Being friends with the bride I got to hang out at her bachelorette party and these gals are FUN!!!  They clean up nice too! 😉

What bride doesn’t want a ride to her ceremony in a golf cart?  Especially if her daddy is driving!  Aren’t they cute?

Our groom.  He’s pretty cute in his own right.  And agreeable.  I like that in a groom. 😉

His group of groomsmen and some ushers.  Big ol’ bunch of handsome, if I do say so myself!

His mom and daddy and brother.  Not too hard to see where he gets his good looks from!  They had an outdoor wedding so they parked an RV to block the wedding party from the guests and the gals hung out inside until it started. Genius!

FYI: if you ask a group of groomsmen to jump, they’ll usually jump. Getting them to show off their argyle socks while jumping?  Bonus!

That golf cart made it into a few pictures!  LOL

A groom and his grandma.  Let’s all give a collective “awwwwwwwww”…..

Their amazing day was followed by a fun, dancing-filled reception.  An amazing day to kick off the start of what is sure to be an amazing marriage.

Julie and Travis, Thank you so much for letting me capture the memories of your Wedding Day.  I hope you’re enjoying your honeymoon on the Emerald Isle and that you live happily ever after.

All my best, Michelle

Spring Senior Sessions | Fort Wayne High School Senior Photographer

Yup, it’s that time of year again!  The countdown to Graduation has begun.  Time to make sure you’ve got your invitations, party supplies, and,  yes, your Senior Photos.  My sessions are limited and filling fast so if you want to get on the calendar give me a text.  I can’t wait for warmer temperatures and clicking shutters!  Until then, stay warm and don’t let the Indiana winter get you down!

Catherine | Class of 2015

The Fall Sessions of 2015 Seniors has proven to be nothing but spectacular!  Full of awesome weather and Gorgeous Seniors!

And when I say gorgeous seniors I am definitely including this beauty: Catherine.  She has a classic look about her.  I know there’s a

movie star that she resembles but I can’t think of who.  Perhaps one of you can help me out?

See what I mean about classic?  Such a timeless look that Catherine has!  Can’t you just picture her in a black and white movie?  Kind of

a Hepburn style.  I know I can!  Lovely…

Not only does Miss Catherine have some of the most stunning blue eyes I’ve ever photographed but she’s got talent!  She’s a

flautist.  (I had to look up how to spell that!)  But, seriously, playing the flute is something I’ve always admired.  I played the

clarinette in middle school but the flute was never something I was able to even attempt.  Oh, and the eyes?  Did you SEE those eyes!?!

‘Nuff said.

I just love how her easy going nature shines through here.  I’m sure she’s a driven student though as she’s pretty confident she’s going to

school for Computer Engineering, more than likely at Purdue.  Brains and beauty?  Cha-ching!!

Yeah, I picked another photo of her spectacular eyes.  It’s my blog and I can do that.  😉  How could I resist though?

Catherine, thanks so much for allowing me to capture your Senior Photos.  I enjoyed spending time with you and wish you all the best

in your future endeavors.  Maybe someday you can write a computer program that writes blog posts for me? lol

Bailey | Class of 2015

If I’m lucky, at least once a year, I get to photograph a Senior that I’ve known for a fair amount of time. I consider it a real privilege to get to capture photos for someone that I’ve watched grow up. Bailey is no exception. She is my brother-in-law’s niece so I’ve known her for quite some time. I’ve gotten to see her go from a preschooler to a high school Senior. And, truly, she’s been nothing but a sweet, sweet girl the whole time. Truly a pleasure to know. And it really shines through in her photos. Here, see for yourself:

Is she not gorgeous?  And her eyes!!  They’re stunning!  Of course, if you’ve followed this blog for any length of time, you know how I am about eyes 😉

Miss Bailey is the full package too!  She has played sports through high school, mainly soccer and basketball.  She’s lettered as well.  Talented!

She’s not 100% on where she’s going to school or whether it”ll be in Nursing or Sports Therapy (I think I’ve got that right?) but I’m sure wherever

she goes she will be a success!  Best of Luck Bailey on the rest of your Senior year!  I hope it’s full of laughter, memories and lots of friendships to

New Kitties | Fort Wayne Pet Photographer

My oldest recently got new kittens.  And, being a college student who likes to come home for long weekends, she brought them with her.  Ethel wasn’t too sure about the visitors.  Of course the visitors weren’t too sure about her either.  That’s Hazel peeking out from behind the closet door.

George was playing in the background.  Ethel did her best to keep an eye on him without him realizing it.

Di did her best to get them to warm up to each other.  The hissing has ceased but I’m picturing long naps together in the near future.  Or ever.  😉

Hazel is quite curious.  And fast.  It took a lot of kitten wrangling to get this photo.  And kitten wrangling is not easy.  Or fast.  But, when the cuteness is so readily available you do what you gotta do….

This next photo, while just a bit fuzzy, is my absolute favorite from their little photo session.  Do you see how that little man leaps?  He does that all the time when he’s playing.  He took a nap soon after.  I wanted to take one as well….but hey, somebody’s gotta do the editing!

Here’s to lots of cavorting and and cartwheeling  in your near future!

Seniors of 2014

So…it’s been awhile since I blogged.  But, in my defense, I’ve been swamped!  And, to tell the truth, I wouldn’t have it any other way!  I absolutely ADORE my Senior clients and wanted just one more chance to show off the awesome group that I had this year!  So, here,  in all their glory, are but a sampling of the incredibleness that they possess.
