Indianapolis Public Library Wedding



























































Brett & Jordan’s Indianapolis Public Library Wedding by Stacy Able Photography

 Q&A with Bride Brett:

Jordan and I love long, cozy dinners with friends and wanted our wedding to have a similar feel.  The moment I saw the Indianapolis Public Library I knew it was the venue for us, and The Simon Reading Room provided the perfect setting.  I could just picture how warm and intimate it would feel in November.  We also wanted to incorporate elements of New York into the wedding, as it is the city where we met and live.  Our table numbers were all subway stops that have special meaning to us, the guest book was a coffee table of New York, and our entrance song was Taylor Swift’s “Welcome to New York”.

The wedding was perfect, and we were so happy our family and friends were able to celebrate with us.

Favorite moment(s)? Our favorite moment was the ceremony.  Reverend Dr. Ray Bowden, is such a special person, and he had some wonderful words to share with us. It was so meaningful, and I felt so close to Jordan in those moments.  And, fun fact, this was Ray’s 998th wedding!

My dad’s speech was also really special.  He is a great public speaker and everyone enjoyed his welcome.  It was a great way to start dinner.

Funniest moment(s)? The maid of honor, my sister Hope. and the best man, Jordan’s brother Nate, both gave very funny and thoughtful speeches.  A favorite quote from Nate’s speech was “Brett, you look beautiful tonight.  Jordan… you look like my brother.”

Indianapolis Family Newborn Photography



















Baby Kamden’s Lifestyle Newborn Portraits in Indianapolis by Stacy Able Photography

I’ve had the great honor to photograph Baby’s Kamden’s parents engagement and wedding. Now, I had the opportunity to photograph these two as new parents. They welcomed their beautiful baby boy Kamden late November and I was the lucky one to photograph him.

Their pup Makai who was in their wedding and engagement portraits also popped in a few frames. I love how the always include their pup as dogs are family, too.

I photograph newborns in a natural, lifestyle way. Having the parents hold, swaddle, and snuggle their newborn represent real moments I love capturing. Lindsey and Zach’s session was just that and was photo gold. Thank you Lindsay and Zach in having me document another one of your amazing family!

W Lakeshore and Salvatores Chicago Wedding Photography


































































Trista and Brody’s W Lakeshore and Salvatores Winter Chicago Wedding by Stacy Able Photography

I’m not sure where to begin with Trista and Brody’s wedding awesomeness. Their joy, laughter, and love for one another was infectious. Walter and I felt like old friends in their wedding party which made capturing their day all the more fun.

From their first look at the W Lakeshore Chicago to their Gatsby styled reception at Salvatore’s Restaurant in Lincoln Park everything ran smoothly. Trista worked on several DIY projects including the centerpieces, coffee favors, as well as the brooch bouquet.

One thing of note to future couples planning a winter wedding, Trista and Brody smartly planned their photos before sunset as winter weddings can get dark quickly.

Thank you Trista and Brody in having Walter and I document your special day!!!

Cantigny and Crystal Grand Banquet Fall Chicago Wedding

























Caleb and Linda’s Black Tie Fall Wedding at Crystal Grand Banquets in the Chicago Suburb of Lamont, Illinois

Since we last met, time flew by… and with just a hint of fall left, Linda and Caleb’s wedding day had arrived.

Ever since Linda showed me a photo of her wedding dress last fall, and I have been excited to photograph it ever since. In her Vera Wang gown, she was a vision. And while not to be outdone, Caleb was equally dapper in his classic tuxedo.

I am so thankful that we had an hour at Cantigny, in suburban Chicago, for their bridal party portraits as I couldn’t be more thrilled with the images. I could have easily photographed these two easily for hours.

One of the highlight for me was a day time sparkler exit from the church… I will let the images tell the rest of their story.

Thank you for having Kellie and me photograph your big day!

Brown County State Park Fall Trash the Dress Photography















Nicole & Michael’s Brown County State Park Fall Trash the Dress Photography

A few years back I photographed Nicole and Michael’s summer wedding at the Inn at Irwin Gardens. Recently, one of their photos featuring the newlyweds and their golden retriever Luke was on Brides.com’s instagram feed. Right after the feature, I had a pleasant surprise. Nicole wanted to do a fall brown county bridal portrait session. Naturally their pup Luke was to partake which had me even more excited. We lucked out with the peak color in Brown County and I couldn’t be happier with the images. It was great to catch up with these two and complete their wedding image collection with a fall “trash the dress” session.
