Adam + Shannan // Bloomington Indiana Wedding Photographer

bloomington-indiana-wedding-photographer-46-of-196

Bloomington is one of our absolute most favorite places to visit. If you’ve never been you must:
1. Watch Breaking Away.
2. Attend the Little 500.
3. Explore the sprawling IU campus and admire the mammoth limestone buildings.
4. Stop at The Big Cheeze food truck for the perfect late night grilled cheese, we recommend the King Curtis or the Cheezy F Baby.

But hands down the best part of Bloomington is that Adam and Shannan live there. We’ve been lucky enough to count Adam as one of our best friends since college and loved Shannan from the first time we meet her over Settlers of Catan and Pizza Express.

Adam and Shannan’s day began at the modern downtown Hyatt Place with some of the most outrageous getting ready pictures ever. I assume Monster energy drinks will be calling us any minute to buy all the images for their next ad campaign. Then we made our way over to their ceremony site at The Presidents Hall on the Indiana University campus for their first look. Shannan surprised Adam with an X Files themed cake that made my heart smile. I believe David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson were formally invited, I suspect they sent gifts in their absence.

Next we braved the oppressive heat as we made our way across campus for some incredible portraits. The IU campus and architecture lends itself well to epic landscape shots and has enough character to make close up portraits that much more interesting. Sidetone: Bloomington, IN in July is absurdly hot. We went down for a week and it never dipped below 95℉ or 95% humidity. Not once. Not even after midnight. Shannan was somehow seemingly unphased. She was effortlessly beautiful the entire day, never broke a sweat, and never once did her infectiously upbeat attitude waiver.

Adam and Shannan’s ceremony was everything we love about our job. Witnessing two amazing people start a whole new chapter in their lives is truly incredible, their vows were so sweet and we felt so lucky to be there for it. The reception that followed was terrific. The Mac and Cheese bar was an experience we won’t soon forget and the dance that followed was a thing of beauty. You need to see these pictures. And if you don’t have dancers like these in your life right now you need to sit down and think long and hard about how to remedy that immediately.

Photographing wonderful couples is pretty much our life and we love it! We want to get better every year, for us 2016 has been all about night photography. We’ve been trying to work in a quick 15 minute nighttime session with our couples as the dance comes to a close. We had a blast creating these photographs and are super grateful that Adam and Shannan were able to take a few moments at the end of the night to help us capture these moments. They are some of our favorite photographs we’ve taken and we hope you enjoy!! We also want to wish Adam and Shannon all the best and thanks again for allowing us to be right in the middle of your big day:)

Hailey + Peter // Sixteen03 Event Center // Bismarck Wedding Photographer

Bismarck Wedding Photographer (79 of 208)Hailey and Peter are married!! You may remember these two from their fantastic colorful Bismarck engagement session last summer.

If you love weddings with beautiful brides and charmingly handsome grooms this is the blog post is for you!! If you find yourself annoyed by young love, excellent dancers or doughnuts maybe this isn’t for you.

We joyfully made the trek to Bismarck, unanimously voted best state capital ever 133 years running, for Hailey and Peter’s big day. We began their wedding day at the fantastic Sixteen03 event center. If you haven’t been yet, Sixteen03 has this really great modern warehouse vibe, plenty of natural light and tons of original glazed brick which served as an awesome backdrop for photos and their adorable first look. We never get tired of first looks. They’re such a great way for the future Mr & Mrs to take a quiet little moment before the craziness of the wedding day sweeps over, and just take everything in and really focus on what’s most important, the love they share that brought them together!

After the first look we made our way downtown for some really great portraits, then it was off to meet up with the bridal party for a few super fun images before the ceremony began back at Sixteen03. Needless to say it went perfectly! Next up, the Sixteen03 chef grilled wonderfully seasoned chicken and beef kabobs for dinner. Warm, thoughtful speeches and toasts followed, then dessert. Warning!! The following contains unadulterated images of freshly baked, tastefully sprinkled, fluffy plump doughnuts!! We’ve never seen doughnuts at a wedding reception before. Not even in Texas where doughnut stores ever so slightly outnumber the population. It’s an absolutely brilliant move. People love doughnuts. People love doughnuts. People LOVE doughnuts. It’s so fundamentally simple yet exquisitely elegant that I feel a tinge of shame for not having thought of it sooner. I guess that’s just the difference between brilliance and blogging about it.

Also, if you ever get the chance play a Bee Gee’s song in the presence of Peter and Hailey. Then step back and watch 2 masters bare their soul in the art of dance.Bismarck Wedding Photographer (1 of 208)Bismarck Wedding Photographer (2 of 208)Bismarck Wedding Photographer (7 of 208)Bismarck

Jen + Dan // Grand Forks Wedding Photographer

Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (45 of 128)Jen and Dan are married!! Late last fall we had the pleasure of sitting down with Jen and Dan at Brick and Barley for a few tastefully chosen Hefeweizens, IPA’s and appetizers over which we became fast friends. How can you not love people who put on international themed dinner parties and have both enormous dogs and hilarious cats? You can’t, its scientifically impossible. Pretty sure there’s even a episode of Mythbusters that will back us up on that. Needless to say we were super excited to get to photograph their engagement session before the snow arrived and their wedding this summer.

One of the truly wonderful things about our job is that you get to be right in the middle of one of the busiest and best days of a couples life. It’s even more fun when they have huge families and tons of guests like these two did! The entire wedding day took place on the Sacred Heart campus in East Grand Forks. The church is gorgeous and the attached school provided plenty of room for the dinner and dance. Before and after the ceremony we were able check out the surrounding area and stop of for some really lovely green midsummer portraits. Regretfully, Bugsy, their enormously wonderful dog was unable to make it for the wedding photos. I quickly grew very attached during their engagement session which Bugsy tagged along for and even showcased his brute strength, a few more refined tricks and profound leaf chasing abilities. The entire day was really great. Everywhere you turned more friends and family awaited, each seemingly warmer and more welcoming than the last. We felt so blessed just to be a part of the big day and we hope you enjoy checking out photographs from their day just as much as we enjoyed making them!!Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (1 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (2 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (3 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (4 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (6 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (9 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (7 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (8 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (13 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (11 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (14 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (15 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (16 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (18 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (20 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (22 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (24 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (49 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (50 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (51 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (48 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (26 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (30 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (29 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (31 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (33 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (34 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (42 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (36 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (39 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (38 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (35 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (40 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (43 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (46 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (44 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (54 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (57 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (55 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (56 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (59 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (60 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (61 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (62 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (63 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (64 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (65 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (66 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (69 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (67 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (71 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (73 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (74 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (75 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (76 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (77 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (78 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (79 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (80 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (81 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (82 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (83 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (84 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (85 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (86 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (87 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (88 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (89 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (90 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (92 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (93 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (94 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (95 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (99 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (100 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (101 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (102 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (103 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (104 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (105 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (107 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (108 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (109 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (110 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (111 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (112 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (113 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (115 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (114 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (116 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (117 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (118 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (120 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (119 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (128 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (121 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (122 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (124 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (123 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (127 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (52 of 128)Grand Forks Wedding Photographer (53 of 128)

David + Elisa // Washington DC Wedding Photographer

Washington DC Wedding Photographer (42 of 238)

We need to introduce you to David and Elisa! We have the great privilege of being able to call these two dear friends and we were also fortunate enough to attend and photograph their wonderful Washington DC wedding this summer. We were constantly struck by just how completely in love these two are and how many wonderful people they had surrounding themselves on one of the happiest days of their lives. It was everything we absolutely love about our job turned up to 10.

David and Elisa’s wedding day began at the massive St. Augustine Church in Washington DC.  Following their ceremony we were able to explore some of the areas parks which are all seemingly stuffed to the brim with history, statues, and epic views for photographs. Then the wedding party made its way to the reception at a private residence established in the late 18th century. Set amidst inviting gardens and towering trees awaited a one of a kind wedding reception. Over 1000 hand folded origami swans adorned the site. Fine Ale’s, Pilsners and a very impressive Saison, all brewed by a dear friend of Dave and Elisa, awaited guests along with a giant seafood paella prepared on site by another friend of David and Elisa’s. To top it all off, an entire roast pig!! Needless to say everyone ate like kings, teared up during toasts and then danced and karaoked the night away. Side note:Karaoke should be at every wedding dance ever going forward.

Hot tip, if you ever see that Dave Barta is calling your phone, don’t answer. He will invariably leave a very informative and entirely delightful voicemail sung to the melody of the finest songs from Les Miserables. Then call back immediately, compliment his wonderful singing voice and thank him for gracing your voicemail with such a great gift.

Grant + Sam // Thumper Pond Wedding Photographer

Thumper Pond Wedding Photographer (52 of 184)What’s better than a weekend at the lakes? Swimming, grilling, tubing, tons of sun? Add a wedding into that mix, surround yourself with all your best friends and family, great food and dancing, and you’ve got a recipe for the best day ever! Grant and Sam definitely nailed it! Their entire day took place at the picturesque Thumper Pond Resort! It’s a wonderful venue overlooking a terrific 18 hole golf course just across from Ottertail Lake. We absolutely love getting to be right in the middle of tremendous  days like these. It’s so wonderful to be engulfed in the and fun and excitement and friends and families of weddings like Sam and Grant’s! They were super great to work with, the weather was terrific and they even made some time for us to sneak them away to the Ottertail Shoreline for some really great sunset pictures!Thumper Pond
