Maternity Leave | Baby #3!

1.7.15         Personal

As baby King #3′s arrival is quickly approaching I wanted to let you know I’ll be taking a break from regular Megelaine Images work through March.  Being self employed I’ve not been able to plan on schedule an actual maternity break before and with this baby I wanted to be sure to have some time where I didn’t feel my focus was divided.  So if you are a past client and needing something, as I can I’ll get to get, but expect a slower than normal response.  Brides considering us for your wedding, we will still be able to answer your questions, again just understand that our response time might be a little slow as I won’t be checking in daily. That definitely doesn’t mean we wouldn’t be excited to talk to you about your wedding and if we’d be a good fit for you.  We have openings for August and out for 2015.  Thanks to all for the support through this pregnancy, your encouragement and prayers have been appreciated.



Amy & Louie | Wedding Reception The Brick South Bend Indiana

12.31.14         Weddings

What a cool venue, what a cool party.  I loved the incorporation of Louie’s culture, from the mariachi band, cake topper to the fresh from the grill Mexican food.  Everything looked stunning in the reception space at The Brick.  Much thanks to our cousin Laura, who happens to be a really experienced wedding coordinator.

A first for us was having both of our kids attending the wedding.  They LOVED it.  Although they didn’t totally understand why mommy and daddy were too busy to play with them, they loved the popcorn, cake, dancing and fancy clothes.  Much thanks to Tim’s parents and rest of the family for helping corral our kids while we captured such a fun party.

To Amy & Louie, we were so honored to be a part of your special celebration, may a part of the high school sweetheart love never fade.

Amy & Louie | Winter Wedding in Bremen, IN

12.29.14         Weddings

High school sweethearts.  You can see it with how cute they are together.  Many years later, they still bring out a glow in each other.  Amy (Tim’s cousin) and Louie celebrated their marriage with a Catholic ceremony in their hometown and current home of Bremen, Indiana.  Louie had several members of his family make the trip up from Mexico to support and celebrate with him.  While cold, we didn’t see snow until we arrived in South Bend at The Brick for their reception.  I’m pretty sure this was the only instance where my 2 photo stops between the ceremony and reception were not-snowy, then snowy.  Pretty cool to have both looks in your pictures!  Clearly, she’s family, so I’m a bit biased, but Amy was a stunning bride.  Oh and Louie, so clearly in love with her.

Karie & Andy | Purdue Union Wedding Reception

12.24.14         Weddings

After a delightful stop at Harry’s, everyone was it great spirits as the cocktail hour began at the Purdue Union.  While definitely focused on the love that Karie and Andy shared, there was also no shortage of love for sports and Purdue in the room. Purdue Pete made a surprise stop in at the reception and was a star of the dance floor for a bit.  Everything came together beautifully, just as Karie had carefully planned.  A giant beautiful room filled with family and friends sharing a fun evening together,  hard to top.  However, it was followed nicely with Karie & Andy’s road trip adventure style honeymoon around Ireland.

To the adventures ahead Karie & Andy- thank you so much for sharing your joy and love with us!

Karie & Andy | Purdue Wedding at Mackey Arena

12.23.14         Weddings

Karie & Andy met early on as Boilers (Gold Rush I believe), having a random connection of just a name looked up on Facebook, being from a similar area of Wisconsin (courtesy of some observant parents/grandparents).  They have been journeying together since, through their days at Purdue, graduate school apart and back together again in the work force in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  You might remember this “slightly” competitive couple’s engagement session at their Crossfit Gym.  As fiercely competitive as they can be, they can also be extremely romantic when they are in their happy place together.

So yes, West Lafayette can be a destination wedding.  All of their guests traveled from out of town to be there, celebrate and support these two as they committed their for-evers together.  Their ceremony was held at the newly opened Spurgeon Club inside of Mackey arena. A rain shower did surprise the ladies and the guys who walked over to the ceremony from the Union.  Fortunately the ladies had transportation.  The rain let up enough for us to still have plenty of fun on campus taking pictures with the wedding party and their dog, Sully.  A fun pre-cocktail party commenced at Harry’s Chocolate Shop.
