Wedding season will be kicking into full swing here in just a few days as we celebrate Stephanie and Dan’s wedding. We enjoyed one of our last low key weekends as a family for a while by spending plenty of time outside! After church Sunday we drove to the nearby IMA gardens to soak up the blue sky, sunshine, smell the flowers and attempt to capture a bit of the kids cuteness right now. My kids are fast- their basic pose is running. Here’s a look at us right now. Yes, Charlotte is looking like a full toddler now!

Kimberly and Joe are still in initial engagement bliss- with Joe pulling off his awesome proposal just weeks ago. These two are planning a fall wedding downtown, so we got an engagement session in right away so they could get out those save the dates. We spent time around Mass Ave, before heading down to the canal on one of the nicest days yet we’ve had this year. I even wore shorts.
These two are a great match and are excited to start planning the next stages of life together. Best wishes as you plan your amazing wedding and look for a place to call home together.
I always encourage couples when planning their engagement session to pick a place that is “them”; such as a place they like to go, a hobby they do together, etc. Well, Karie and Andy really enjoy doing CrossFit together. This was my first time in a CrossFit gym and it was fun to see how fit these two are and how much they enjoy their time at the gym. Doing an engagement session at the gym was definitely a creative challenge, but I think with their willingness to be good sports we got some neat shots that are really “them”.
Later we traveled to downtown Fort Wayne, for a stop by their favorite Martini spot and a walk in the park with their totally spoiled dog Sully. Although we wished it was a bit more spring like outside, it was great to see some sunshine and remember spring is so close.
Karie and Andy’s fall wedding at Purdue with be wonderful no doubt and we’ll see if Sully makes the guest list!

Best Buddies celebrates 25 years as an organization this year. Tim and I were honored to photograph again this year the Indiana Best Buddies Black and White Ball at D’Amore downtown Indianapolis. They had a sold out crowd, which enjoyed an extensive silent auction, some amazing food from Thomas Caterers of Distinction, libations, and several moving videos created by the evening’s Emcee Matt Mays. Lilly Lane worked their magic with flowers and decor and many, many other volunteers and sponsors made such an elegant and fun evening possible. Most importantly funds were raised for Best Buddies to continue to expand in Indiana year after year.
