Kellie and Jamie! Indianapolis, Indiana Wedding Photography

July 9, 2017

“I can hear her heart beat for a thousand miles
And the heavens open every time she smiles” – Crazy Love

I know I say it like, every single wedding I shoot, but seriously, you guys.  I LOVE my job.  Editing and culling through wedding images, in the days after the couple says I do, I seriously sit grinning at my screen, remembering each beautiful moment.

And Jamie and Kellie’s wedding was AMAZING.  This couple.  You guys.  I LOVE them.  Jamie said something about being “the luckiest man in the universe”, and I feel like looking through their images, and remembering their perfect wedding day, I can just see that gleaming out of him the entire day.  And then beautiful Kellie!  She just radiates a glow of a woman truly in love with her man.

Their day was gorgeous.

And since most of us were in Indiana the previous two days, we know exactly what it COULD have been [crazy rain storms the day before, and crazy heat two days before].  The sun was out, and beautiful Indiana clouds, and a light breeze to cool you off when you got a bit hot.

Their wedding was held at the Historic Ambassador House of Fishers, and it was the prettiest place to get ready, and then have both the ceremony and the reception.

Favorite moments:
-All the awesome music [thanks to Garth and Jared!]
-Random dance breaks during portraits
-The Magical re-lighting unity candles
-Geeking out about Matchbox Twenty coming to town in September [they have tickets, I have tickets, it’s going to be awesome!]
-Beautiful sparkler exit to the night [I’m super proud of these beautiful images!]

Kellie and Jamie, Ashley and I so loved photographing your beautiful wedding day!  Congratulations!

Most memorable moment?

K: Walking down the isle and saying our vows. When all three unity candles went out and then all three came back on at the same time I knew my older sister Jaclene was there with us celebrating.

J: The most memorable moment for me is doing the first look and seeing Kellie in her dress for the first time

Advice for future brides/grooms?

K: Don’t sweat the small stuff and soak up every moment you can with your friends and family. Relax and be present in each moment to truly feel the love and joy that surrounds you. No one will remember your centerpieces but everyone remembers the love they felt

J: If you find the right vendors, the investment is worth it! Also, let the bride do what she wants in the planning process.

Funniest memory?

KWhen we realized we had no idea how to cut our wedding cake and/or eat it but we stumbled through it!  

J: Watching my dad hit the dance floor

If you could do it all over would you change anything?

K: Nothing at all, everything was perfect.

J: No, wouldn’t change a thing


Key west Florida at casa marina right on the beach. It was paradise.

Lastly, are there any other vendors that you LOVED and want to give a special shout out to?
Becky Ruby-Wojtowicz with Lilly Lane did an amazing job with our flowers and day of coordinating! She’s the best!
