Jessica + Steven

Their full engagement session is coming soon!

Wednesday, April 29, 2009


Today my cousin reminded me to make lemonade with the lemons life threw at me. That sounds delightful, and I happen to love lemonade! So thanks, Amanda, for that important reminder. You rock!

You know who else rocks? My amazing husband, that's who. No way could I survive without him! (We were in Greece when I shot this photo.)

Because the weather has been so dreary lately, here is another one from Greece. While watching this sunset from a roof top restaurant, we ate the best apple crisp a la mode we had ever tasted. Sources say the sunset in Oia is the most beautiful sunset in the world. What do you think?

rainy Monday

Dear Mother Nature,

Could you send us some more days like this? We are ready for Spring to hang around for awhile.

She is so sweet and has the most perfect little cheeks. Don't you agree?

I love everything about this one.

Check out those eyelashes! I am so jealous!

and the winner is...

Congratulations, Maggie! You won my Earth Day giveaway! Send me your address so I can send you a gift certificate to Cafe Patachou. For those wondering, I selected the winner randomly using a drawing.

As you can see, I have been doing some planting. Gerberas are my favorite and they are a full sun plant, so they are perfect for the front of our house! I planted a ton of flowers yesterday, but these French marigolds take me back to my childhood. They are colorful and they help keep bugs away!

I hope you all enjoyed the amazing (albeit windy) weather this weekend!

I'm beat!

I am so worn out from all the yard work today. We laid sod and planted a garden and we are exhausted! I'm going to pick the Earth Day giveaway winner tomorrow -- I promise. And yes, I will still accept entries until tomorrow.

For now, I'm about to snack on some of Ken's leftover birthday cake. Here are a few photos I took before we dug in yesterday. Anyone else love DQ's cakes? Ken LOVES them, so of course I had to get him one.

Stay tuned for the full post coming soon!

Sweet Annabelle

I could just eat her little cheeks. Is that wrong?

Monday, April 20, 2009

I can't get enough of her!

Quite a few people have asked me where these photos were taken. I shot them in a field next my house. If you'd like to schedule a field session, send me an email!

Ken and I had so much fun photographing Sarah a few weeks ago in downtown Indianapolis. Isn't she gorgeous?!?!

My view:

Ken's view:

I love this light!!!

handmade birdcage veils

I am in love with these birdcage veils handmade by Kasia Fink. You can order one of her existing designs or work with her to create a custom birdcage veil. I absolutely love the way a bride looks in a birdcage veil! Go get one!!!

Typical Lindsay!

Whenever Jake or Ken ask me to go stand somewhere so they can test the light, this is what I do. I don't know why I do it...I just do it. I have tons of images of me like this! I promised Jake I'd blog this one, so have a nice laugh!

Ellie + Matt

Ellie and Matt have known each other since they were babies, and that is no exaggeration. Their parents are best friends, Ellie's best friend is Matt's sister, and Matt's best friend is Ellie's brother. They grew up together, they vacationed together, they spent the majority of their lives together. Their friendship turned into like and then the like eventually turned into love. These two families could not have been happier when, on December 31, 2008, Ellie and Matt became husband and wife.

I have never before blogged 50 images from a single wedding but I felt there were so many moments I had to share with you. That being said, I am, for the most part, going to let the photos speak for themselves.

She's gorgeous.

My view:

Ken's view:

Ellie's dad was going through chemotherapy just days before the wedding. There was a chance that we were going to have a small ceremony at the hospital prior to the wedding, but he made it through and was such a happy camper at the wedding. Look at that smile...

Ellie took one final look at herself before heading out to meet Matt.

Matt is waiting for his gorgeous bride.

First look:

Both their ceremony and reception were held at The Renaissance Hotel in Carmel, Indiana.

It was two degrees outside, but Ellie and Matt were troopers.

You just can't beat this light!

Yummy f/1.2.

One of my favorite ceremony moments EVER.

Ellie with her proud parents.

It looks like the party is starting! Hey, it's New Year's Eve, can you blame them?!

First dance:

This is quite possibly the sweetest first dance photo I have ever taken.

Midnight kiss!!! Happy New Year!!!

Ellie and Matt, Ken and I had a FABULOUS time with you and your families on New Year's Eve. Your wedding was absolutely amazing in every way. We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!!!
