Bull Creek District Park Portrait Session // Austin Minis

“There is a freedom you begin to feel the closer you get to Austin, Texas.” // Willie Nelson

As most of you know I recently I was fortunate enough to photograph a wedding out in Austin, Texas. And as a first time traveler to Austin I was both terrified and in love with the city. While Austin is downright beautiful this midwestern girl struggled a bit traveling on the highways in Texas. Needless to say, there are a lot of overpasses and they can get quite scary! Sorry Austin peoples... these are just the facts.

However, traveling on these terrifying roads led to a lot of fun and amazing things though. Like my first time trying In-N-Out Burger, making amazing new friends, and catching up with some awesome people for my Austin Mini Sessions!

In June 2014 I second shot a wedding with Conforti Photography where I met Leslie + Amanda. Two amazingly beautiful women with equally beautiful souls! When Leslie saw I was going to being ATX she definitely wanted to book a mini session! And then Leslie told the woman she nannies for about the sessions and she booked too!! It was definitely fun catching up with Leslie + Amanda again and then meeting Leigh + Robin and their adorable little kiddos!

Intimate Backyard Labor Day Wedding // Kelly & Mel

“Whatever our souls are made up, his and mine are the same.” // Emily Bronte

I love this quote by Emily Bronte, I feel like it really describes Kelly + Mel’s relationship. Two ladies who have always been on the same wavelength. Three years ago, Kelly asked me to photograph a ceremony between her and her partner Mel at their home in Fishers over Labor Day weekend. At the time, same-sex marriage was not only not legal in Indiana but not part of our foreseeable future. Kelly + Mel didn’t know when or IF same-sex marriage would become legal in the state where they reside but they did know they were raising two amazing twin boys and they wanted those boys to feel their family come together. Three years ago Kelly + Mel proclaimed their love and promises to take care of each other in an intimate ceremony for close friends and family. I was honored to photograph their union then, but I was even more honored when Kelly invited me back to photograph their legal ceremony this past Labor Day at their annual Labor Day party. It was a fun filled evening with live music by Zanna Doo, catering by Simeri’s Italian Restaurant, swimming and dancing all around. I was so happy to be there surrounded by their love and zest for life. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend my Labor Day weekend!
