Indiana Wedding Photography: Justin & Julia’s Wedding

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

First let me start off by saying that this was a special wedding for me to photograph.  I not only photographed Julia’s sister’s wedding, but I also have photographed their family pictures, and both Justin and Julia’s senior pictures.  I think it is safe to say that I am officially their family photographer.  Big thanks for trusting me with these special moments in your lives.

This first shot was a flash back to Sarah’s wedding day.  Julia’s mom gave her something special that made her think of her grandpa.

This post should be all about Justin and Julia but there is a certain someone that kind stole the show at times.  Meet the ring bearer, isn’t he cute.  This was before the wedding.

He was excited about being the ring bearer, but when he realized everyone was staring at him he got alittle scared.

And then he started to cry, don’t worry there is more about him later.

Julia loves snow, she wanted a winter wedding, but after her sister’s wedding was during a snow storm and the temperature was -5 or so Justin said no way.  So he made up for it by having fake snow when they exited the church.

Being a ring bearer is hard work and requires a nap.

After his nap he felt like dancing!

Vanessa caught the bouquet, and she had the cutest reaction!

And now for my favorite part of the night.  DJ Kyle Hinds pulled out his box of props.  It was so much fun, I had a hard time taking pictures because I was laughing so hard.

Thad & Sarah (I photographed their wedding not all that long ago and now they are expecting their first child!!  I can’t wait)

And one last time, here he is again…..

And here are my mom and dad.  They were out on the dance floor dancing the “anniversary dance”.  I love when Kyle does this.  He asks that all the married couples get out on the dance floor and then he asks that the newlyweds leave and then the couples married for less then 5 years, less then 10 years, etc.. until the couple that is married the longest is left.  Well….

that couple ended up being my mom and dad.  (they are so not old enough to be the “old married couple”)  Kyle had them give some marriage advise to the new couple.

Matt is an accountant at Vera Bradley so they chose their wedding colors from Michelle’s favorite Vera pattern.  How cool is that!?!?!?  BTW I love Vera.  We have several here at my house.  Actually my SIL Alesha bought me one for my 30th birthday and I still use it all the time  (yeah that was almost 3 years ago).

The next two photos Bob took.  He once again was so much help to me and such a great help at the event.  If he isn’t busy shooting he jumps in and helps out with anything they need.  I love that about him.

Oh, I better mention this… The location for the wedding and reception is Brad’s family farm.  He grew up there.  How cool is that to get married where you grew up.

I am sure they are so glad they rented this bus.  It worked out perfect.  They hung out in there until the weather cleared so they could get under the tent.

Indiana Wedding Photography: www.photographybyjayme.com

One of the highlights of the evening was the toasts.  Mike- Brad’s father started the evening off with one of the most touching toasts ever.  One thing that followed thru the day was how blessed this couple was.  The weather seemed to clear when it needed to and Mike mentioned how Brad’s mom had always prayed that he would find the perfect bride.  How could it not be a perfect day with Brad’s mom praying since he was little for this day.

It rained outside of the tent, but it didn’t dampen the party because it was a full dance floor all night long!

Indiana Wedding Photography: www.photographybyjayme.com

Kyle Hinds was the DJ  (highly recommend him)  I love when he does the anniversary dance and then talks to the last couple standing on the floor at the end.  This couple was so cute.

Indiana Wedding Photography: www.photographybyjayme.com

As I mentioned Brad and Lindsay had a blessed day.  All weekend it rained and was hot, but right before the ceremony it cleared and we were able to get pictures and they were able to have their wedding and then it started to pour.  I felt terrible to everyone helping with the food and stuff.  They got SOAKED.

Here is the storm front moving in…

Indiana Wedding Photography: www.photographybyjayme.com

Huge thanks to everyone for such a wonderful day.  It was a hot one but really no one complained.  Everyone pitched in and helped out during the day.   I know I posted this on my facebook but have to share here… When Bob and I left we said by to Mike (Brad’s dad)  he said, “come back anytime”  I told Bob that he would just die if we showed up for dinner the next day.  LOL

Oh and have to mention that Lindsay’s dad was in awww of his daughter all day.  She is a beautiful girl but I think seeing her as a stunning bride was just awesome for him.  Bob is going to be just like that when Samantha gets married.

Everyone was just so nice and we could relate to them so well.  My family is so much like Brad’s.  We all live near each other.

Northern Indiana Photography: Nappanee Missionary Church

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

I had the pleasure of teaching some photography to the video crew at the Nappanee Missionary Church.  My cousin Rodney is in charge of Media there.  I mostly worked on composition with them.  We had lots of fun with it.  At least I did, guess I shouldn’t speak for the rest of the group.

Here is Rodney getting ready to introduce me…

The church is HUGE.  We kinda invaded the choir’s practice session.  They were troopers though, they didn’t let us bother them.

I want to thank Abby and Josh (maid of honor and best man) for being so sweet and for helping with crowd control.  LOL  Thanks to Kasey’s dad for making Bob and I feel welcome at his home and to everyone for the fun times.  We really enjoyed ourselves.

Thanks to my husband for not only being a great help to me but was so helpful to the family.  He saved the day when one of the kids knocked over a glass, he was right there to get kids away from the glass and then cleaned up for them.  I love it when I hear people say how lucky I am to have such a great husband.  (thanks, I know!!)

Shout out to Robin who documented Kasey and Erics day thru his video camera.  He told me Kasey worked with him for a summer working on films and commercials.  I would highly recommend him.  He was lots of fun to work with.  Here is a quick shot I snapped of Robin, once he seen I was taking his picture, he thought he had to take mine…  (Robin- call me if you need a photographer, I would have no problem working with any of your famous clients, and I would have no problem flying to CA.  LOL)

Before I end this post, have to mention that the 3 hour journey home was scary.  (Bob says I exaggerate but..) The weather was crazy.  For awhile it rained so hard he drove about 30 mph (If I was driving I would have pulled over)  Thanks facebook friends for keeping me updated on the weather during the ride home!!

Indiana Photography: Justin and Julia’s Engagement Session

Monday, April 26th, 2010

I just love these two.  So glad I am shooting their wedding.  I photographed them both for their senior pictures and also shot Julia’s sister Sarah’s wedding.  They both have wonderful families.  We started off in the studio… This next photo is so them.  Julia laughing and Justin holdin’ Julia tight with a big smile on his face.

Then we wondered around near the buildings because it kept raining…

They kept kissing each other…

Then we went to the 4-H fairgrounds.  Julia was fair queen and Justin was king (just not the same year).  They both continue to be very active with 4-H.  Oh and I almost forgot to add that Justin asked Julia to marry him at last year’s 4-H Fair.

What an awesome wedding!!!  If you didn’t have fun, it was your own fault.  The DJ had the dance floor rockin and Bob had the photo booth going.  I am sad that it is all over.  Sarah and Jon were so easy to work with which makes my day more fun.  (Do you think we could all get together again on their first anniversary??)

I can’t wait until Gayle and Chris’ wedding. It’s gonna be lots of fun and I love working with couples like them that are comfortable in front of the camera.

This was the first time I met Chris and we had such a wonderful meeting. For those of you that are on my facebook you know that I have an attack rooster (aka Dead Chicken)…. well the rooster got out again and chased me as I went to the studio. Chris saved the day though and waved a broom at it and scared it away. He is a smart a$$ though because I asked him how he did that (because it wasn’t scared of me when I did that) and he said, “well I held the handle like this..) whatever, I am just glad it stayed away then.

The kids got the parents a gift certificate for a family shoot.  The perfect gift for people that have everything.  They got family pictures and also had lots of fun.  We all spent lots of time laughing at Ryan helping to get the kids to smile, he does an unusual peek-a-boo.

It was nice to see everyone, espicially Ryan and Shawn who I haven’t seen in a long time.  (by the way my daughter is in her first year of exploring 4-H, it won’t be long until she is showing horses)

Indiana Photography: Bridal Shoot

Tuesday, June 16th, 2009

Can’t post too many pictures from this shoot since it was a Bridal Shoot.  I will for sure share after the wedding, but I wanted to share a couple because I really liked shooting it.  This was my first Bridal session.  What is a Bridal session you are asking????  A shoot prior to your wedding.  LOL 

Several reasons to do a Bridal shoot….We got some super cool shots, she got to do a trial run on hair (found out the veil needs to be secured differently), makeup and dress, we got to have alot of fun doing something different, oh and it is less photos we need to take that day.  Yes of course I will still take some that day, but if there is a time crunch that is one less thing that we have to worry about.

So here are just a couple shots, pretty much just of the flowers.  Elizabeth’s Garden will be doing their flowers for their wedding.  I love working with them.  They just flat out ROCK!
