Kokomo Country Club Wedding – Sam and Nicole

Sam and Nicole are a breath of fresh air. They have this go with the flow attitude that made photographing their wedding day a joy. They were married at First Congregational Church Kokomo, one of the most beautiful, old churches here in Kokomo. The room the ladies got  ready in had the most perfect soft light and made Nicole’s veil glow around her. Shane hung out with the guys while they got ready and laughed as a the pants got mixed up and everyone cracked jokes. After getting ready and having a moment together the two of them were ready to commit their lives to each other as Nicole walked down to Sam with megawatt smiles on both their faces. Their ceremony was sweet and simple and before you knew it they were walking down the front steps with guests cheering for them and blowing bubbles as they made their exit in Sam’s dad’s most prized possession. We shot a quick round of portraits with everyone on the steps, I haven’t had a bridal party this fun in quite some time and I was running in the street trying to get the shot while laughing and trying not to get hit by a car. Happy bridal parties always make for a happy photographer. After portraits we headed to the Kokomo Country Club for their reception. The little touches of pink were everywhere and their gorgeous flowers from the ceremony continued on into the reception site (made by the bride’s aunt!). After one of the best meals I’ve eaten in a long time and all the reception fun we headed outside for some final portraits in the dark. Sam and Nicole, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Sadie and Zach – Engaged

Sadie and Zach were up for an adventure during their engagement session so we made the trip to Turkey Run State Park. Turkey Run is one of the best state parks in Indiana, it looks so different than the normal rolling country side and cornfields most of us are used to around here. Normally Turkey Run is really crowded but we had the park mostly to ourselves and laughed as we ran around the park to find the best spots of light. We splashed through the creek bed, climbed up a waterfall, and strolled through the huge gorge that is so pretty in the fall. I love when we have couples that are up for something a little different for engagement sessions, it always ends up being really fun and allows us to think out of the box to fit in the awesome landscapes.

Jacob and Kristen – Engaged

Jacob and Kristen had planned to meet us in a park in Logansport for their engagement session but the weather had other plans. Just as we all arrived the skies opened up and it poured. Luckily we were free the next day and decided to shoot their session closer to home at the Kokomo Reservoir. We’ve been shooting at the reservoir a lot lately because it’s so pretty this time of year. The trees have started to change and the grasses along the water are long and create the perfect backdrop for a romantic outdoor engagement session. Jacob and Kristen are a joy to work with, they have great chemistry together and are so fun in front of the camera. We can’t wait to photograph their wedding next May!
