Bride and Groom Q+A:

After a year of preparation, it was hard to believe the summer had past and our big day, August 1, was here. In all of our planning, we knew we wanted to be married in Columbus, the place we met and had quickly grown to consider home.

When we thought about our wedding weekend, we wanted it to be traditional, romantic and fun. We carefully chose our vendors knowing their incredible talents would make all of our ideas a reality. We also wanted to highlight all that Columbus had to offer which meant hosting guests at the Hotel Indigo, our rehearsal dinner at the Inn at Irwin Gardens, our wedding Mass at St. Bartholomew Catholic Church and our reception at The Commons.

The day started and ended as the perfect, yet rare, Indiana summer day- warm without a cloud in the sky. The bridal party began their day with Yoga and the men with a classic breakfast at Lincoln Square. This set the tone for what was to become one of the best days! The day went off without a hitch. Father Marty Peter officiated a beautiful wedding Mass. Between the Mass and the reception, the wedding party visited classic Columbus locations to capture these special photos. We greeted our guests as they made their way to The Commons for cocktails, dinner and dancing. The Commons had this amazingly warm and welcoming feel. The black, white and blush colors we chose, along with mahogany Chivari chairs and gorgeous florals from Pomp & Bloom, made the room come alive. As guests filled the room and dinner was served we found ourselves consciously taking moments to take it all in. We were truly overwhelmed with joy.

All throughout the weekend we felt the warmth and love from our friends and family. It was better and more than we could have ever thought possible, and have so many people to thank for making it happen for us as we start our married life together.
Favorite moment(s)
Our family and friends created some memories we’ll never forget– from the sincere welcome and toasts from the Anna’s father, the Maid of Honor and the Best Man;  the heart felt appreciation from family when we took a moment to recognize other former brides in our family by displaying their wedding dresses and pictures; the surprised look on Aaron’s face when he found out there was a late night hot dog bar; dancing the night away to the likes of Katy Perry and Taylor Swift; chanting “one more song!” at the end of the night because we just didn’t want to leave; to ordering pizza to the Hotel Indigo at 2am. There are so many fond memories that will last us a lifetime!
Funniest moment(s)
Along with all the memorable moments, there were definitely a few really funny ones, too! We’ll spare any personal embarrassment and say it had to do with practicing splits on the dance floor and ripped pants, and these were two separate incidents!

Amanda + Rob’s Indianapolis Museum of Art Engagement Photography Session with Nori the Norwich Terrier

How did you two meet?  

Through mutual friends over Labor Day weekend 2011:)At the time, Amanda was living in Indianapolis and Rob in Chicago. By some lucky twist of fate, we found each other at the same party in downtown Chicago despite Rob leaving early that night to manage a band. We remained friends for several months thereafter, reconnecting when the Super Bowl came to Indianapolis and the rest is history. We are overwhelmingly thankful to have been friends first and then partners by virtue of that friendship.
How did Rob propose? 
Like many proposals, there were many ideas.  After Amanda unknowingly postponed plan A, the proposal was created over a quick cup of coffee.
Plan A included reservations at RM Champaign Salon and those reservations quickly became Plan B. It was a fall weekend in October and she had no idea that night was the night she would say “Yes.”  The evening was perfect. On the way to the restaurant we walked down their rustic cobblestone alleyway strung with Edison lights, headed for the entrance. I had decorated the cobblestone hours earlier with our names and the date in chalk.  As we approached the entrance, the building’s wall came into view and it too was decorated with our names and the date.  She didn’t notice it at first (headed straight for the oysters and champaign inside), so I pulled her aside.  Standing together, I expressed my love and intention to marry her.  On one knee I asked, “Will you marry me?”  She was speechless, immediately said “yes” and all but forgot about the ring.
Who picked out the ring?  
The engagement ring was a joint vision but ultimately Rob’s creation. We visited a family jeweler to try different stone and band combinations. We walked in thinking round brilliant and walked out knowing that an oval cut was the absolutely right choice. From there Rob found a jeweler in downtown Chicago and created the ring from the ground up. It’s nothing short of amazing!
 
Wedding date/ plan (a few sentences)? 
We are tying the knot on a beautiful May afternoon in 2016 at St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church in Carmel.  After the ceremony our whimsical, floral wedding will continue at the Ritz Charles Garden Pavilion where we will celebrate our marriage with our most beloved friends and family.

Indianapolis Food Photographer: Charleston Food Photography Workshop















Indianapolis Food Photographer:

Last year, I had the opportunity to leave my crazy Indianapolis Wedding Photography schedule and partake in a Food Photography workshop in Charleston from Clare Barboza and Helene Dujardin. I posted a few food photography images awhile back but since it is summer it seems fitting to post a few lively, colorful, fresh food shots to compliment the season. Part of the work shop included documenting the Charleston, South Carolina farmers market. After the market, we took those fresh ingredients and with chef Laura’s help, created dishes for us to photograph. I really loved photographing (and eating) the quinoa salad as well as the fluffy southern cotton. Because of this workshop, I am increasingly interested in trying new recipes and figuring out how best to photograph them. My personal photography goal for 2015 is to cook and photograph as many dishes as possible and see where this takes me.
