Rebecca & Terry! La Porte, Indiana Wedding Photography

May 4, 2015

“He that finds a wife finds a good thing!” -Proverbs 18:22RT-W-FAV025_WEBYou saw these guys first with their awesome fancy engagement session back in December [oh, you’ve forgotten? CLICK HERE!].  And their wedding did NOT disappoint!

Rebecca grew up in Merrellville, and Terry is from Kansas.  They live in Kansas now, so most of our chatting/meeting each other/etc was done with Skype, and e-mails [so thankful for technology that makes long distance planning easier!]

For an April 17th wedding, we all knew not to try to expect to much from the weather.  We might be freezing or sweating.  BUT, it was the prettiest day of the year thus far.  Not too hot, not too cold!  The sun was shinning beautifully and the images we captured were so gorgeously lit!

Rebecca’s dress was absolutely stunning, and Terry was so SUCH the classic groom!  This was also the biggest bridal party I’ve every photographed [9 on each side!].  But everyone was awesome, and while occasionally chaotic, Rebecca’s awesome sister-in-law kept everyone on task and in order! [you’re a rock star Ariel!].

So glad you guys found me!  I loved your wedding day and am so proud of these beautiful images!

Best of luck to you two!
