It was a year later than they were expecting as Natalie and Cody stood hand in hand under the string lights of Bergstaff Place. It wasn’t what they had originally planned, after rescheduling due to COVID, their love still strengthened through all of the trials 2020 threw their way.
It was the most perfect afternoon for a Sedona elopement. The wind playfully tickled our necks and the sun smiled down as we made our way through the red rock trails. After a sweet first look these two shared vows overlooking Sedona and the iconic Bell Rock. After shooting for a while we headed to a different trailhead near Thunder Mountain.

It was a brisk 40 degrees when I met Celine and Jonah at Indiana Dunes for this elopement style shoot, but the sun was still shining in all her brilliance. We bundled up and made our way along the beach braving the wind that blew hard enough to offend, but not enough to hurt. In the comfort of the golden sunlight they ran and danced along the sandy trails of Indiana Dunes, with the seagrass tickling our ankles.
When Angelica and Rob reached out to me, they described their Indiana backyard wedding as a “Dutch/American wedding with Mexican food at his family’s dairy farm.” And I knew immediately that this would be an incredible and unique experience. Rob’s family moved here from the Netherlands to run their family dairy farm, Union Go Dairy. Angelica didn’t expect to fall for a farmer, but it was one of life’s greatest surprises.

The red rocks of the Saguaro Lake mountains glowed like embers in the January sun. We watched mountain goats effortlessly leap from cliff to cliff as we made our way up into the mountains overlooking the calm waters. Sergio and Mariah balanced each other perfectly, him being her steady rock for her carefree spirit. He helped her step carefully over the rocks and carried her when her dress was close to getting caught on cacti, with the sweetest smile on his face…
A light fog had settled over the waters of Lake Wawasee and it was drizzling ever so slightly, but that wouldn’t deter the excitement of Sara and Luke. They had no idea that fateful day they met working at a tap room together that five plus years later they would be getting married during a pandemic. COVID may have changed their plans, but they couldn’t not be married to one another any longer, so they kept their ceremony on their original date, and boy was it beautiful.

Storm clouds hesitantly hovered in the sky above St. Vincent De Paul, but Judy and Dylan’s excitement wasn’t hindered. They had waited so long for this day, and the threat of rain wasn’t going to hold them back. In the quiet moments before the ceremony, happy tears were shed and tissues passed around for all. And as Judy walked down the aisle to her husband, there wasn’t a dry eye in sight (Myself included).
This wedding was extra special, as Jake is my best friend’s older brother and I’ve known and loved their sweet family for years! This special intimate backyard wedding wasn’t their original plan, but thanks to COVID, they had to change plans on a dime. They waited five years for this day, and they weren’t going to let anything stop them from joining their love and lives together.

I met Spencer and Emily at the Fort Wayne Bridal Spectacular this past January and I was so excited to discover we all went to Pine Hills Church! This couple has seriously gone through so so much adversity, from car accidents to their rehearsal venue double booking on them, to their honeymoon getting canceled (thanks COVID) yet through it all they focused their hearts on serving each other and Jesus.
When Carly reached out to me and told me they were having their wedding at Pine Hills, I was hit with such excitement. Pine Hills being my own home church, it was such an honor to me to be chosen to capture this beautiful day for them. Carly and Colton met in youth group, and from there God wove their love story together into something so unique and beautiful. The morning of the wedding both of them were nothing but smiles, radiating so much joy.
