ERIC + DANAE | Indiana Summer Wedding

Eric and Danae’s Indiana Summer wedding in the country was such a lighthearted, joyful day!  I have known Eric and his family for years, so when he asked me to be their wedding photographer, I was so excited and honored to get to photograph their day!! The first photos in their collection we got the night before, after their rehearsal dinner.  I knew we wouldn’t be able to get photos at the same time while the sun was setting on their actual wedding day and since I had them both, my camera, and a really gorgeous sunset, I asked them if we could do a mini sunset session, and they obliged!

THEN CAME THE BIG DAY!

We started with Bride and Bridesmaid portraits.

After Bride and bridesmaid portraits, I sent the girls in to take a break, freshen up, and cool off a bit (it was a pretty warm day) while we did the Groom and Groomsmen Portraits.

There is something about the bride and groom having those moments together before the ceremony to see each other for the first time on their wedding day that is almost magical.  First looks are literally one of my absolute favorite parts of being a wedding photographer, and was one of my favorite parts of my own wedding day too.  Eric and Danae’s first look was no less fantastic.

Eric and Danae wanted their parents to be there for their first look, so Danae and her parents headed out first, and Eric and his parents followed a few minutes later.

The End.  But also (are you ready for some cheese?) The Beginning. ❤

Eric and Danae, thanks for giving me the honor of photographing your wedding day.  It was sweet, meaningful, and God-honoring and I know your marriage will be the the same.

love,
