It seems like the most common concern of couples is the weather on their wedding day, which makes complete and total sense!) Above all, a rainy day. But as a photographer, I love the opportunity to ease all worries and proudly affirm the bride that I am not worried in the least about the weather. […]

We didn’t get a single moment in the entire day without a raindrop. From gushing to pouring to misting to gushing again, it was a very wet day. to say the least. But I can assure you, this gallery is one of my absolute favorites. With a little bit of creativity and thinking out of the box on my part and taking extra time before the start of the day to scope out some covered spots with good light and a LOT of trust from my bride and groom, we were able to accomplish some beautiful portraits.
Surprisingly enough, some of my favorite portraits were in the drive-thru awning of a bank and a porch of an apartment complex a couple of streets over. Something I love about differing weather is that it forces me to be stretched in ways I haven’t on other wedding days. Because of the extra intentionality in finding great spots, I think we delivered a gallery that was so unique and found locations we may not have apart from the rain.
They started their wedding day preparations at the Graduate Hotel on Kirkwood with a fun Indiana University throwback classic inspired atmosphere. They married at First Christian Church on Kirkwood and celebrated with a reception at Fountain Square Ballroom.
My favorite moment to capture with the couple was sharing their intimate vows and confessing their love for one another before the ceremony in front of the church doors. There were lots of tears shed. I can only imagine how precious these images will be to them years down the road when they remember how sacred those words were.
I love how dear their family and friends are to them. The reception was a blast, with lots of dancing and laughing. This wedding was one for the books!
Congrats to this special bride and groom. So thankful to have celebrated with you, and to call you friends!
