{ Alayna + Ryan | 06.17.17 } Wedding

I'd like to extend a very special thank you to Alayna and Ryan Busse for being so open and welcoming and allowing me to be part of their wedding day!  The love and faith in God that these two families have was absolutely amazing to be a part of for the day!

We started the day off at St. Mark Church in Mishawaka and they decided to do a first look.  The excitement and anticipation was overwhelming for them!

We were able to gather the wedding party up and head to Battell Park in Mishawaka for photos.   The Lord was looking down and decided to bless us with perfect weather too!  The bridesmaids and groomsmen looked amazing with the bright pink and gray colors!  Alayna's wedding dress was just amazing as well!

What a beautiful ceremony at St. Mark Church.  I'm so happy for Alayna & Ryan, they make a perfect couple!  Congrats!

The reception was at Riverside Terrace in Mishawaka.  What an absolutely stunning venue!  The wedding cupcakes looked perfect and tasted great too!  The dance floor was packed and the DJ made it a ton of fun!

{ Lyndsay | 4.17.16 } Portraits

Had a lot of fun with my niece Lyndsay, photographing her for her upcoming modeling career!  We decided to time the photo session to catch the sun while it was setting, as usually this is one of the best times to shoot outdoors.  Lyndsay and I had fun trying different poses and modeling for the camera.  Hope you like them Lynds!


{ Ryan & Alisa | 10.24.15 } Engagement Photos at Oliver Mansion, South Bend, Indiana

We had a super fun time spending the evening taking pictures with, soon to be married, Ryan Pickering & Alisa Stutsman. After warming up to the camera, these two were complete naturals in front of the camera. We spent an hour at the Oliver Mansion and then another hour at the East Race, both in downtown South Bend.  This mansion is really amazing because of the intricate architecture and detail.  The Oliver Mansion has been a landmark of downtown South Bend for a long time and it makes a super setting for photography.  Ryan and Alisa are both in the architecture industry, so it fit them well.  You can tell from the pictures, these two were genuinely happy to be in each others' company! It's an honor to have been picked to be their photographer, and we can't wait to be able to photograph their wedding this coming up October. Cheers to Ryan & Alisa!
