Jen and Roman | The Armory, South Bend Wedding | Indiana Wedding Photographer

Weddings have started!! And we are so excited that Jen and Roman’s wedding was the first of 2019! We survived the polar vortex and the day of was a much appreciated 30 degrees with a fresh blanket of snow.

Jen and Roman met through Jen’s family trying to set them up. Roman is the general manager of Temper Grille in Granger, where Jen’s family frequented. They thought they would make a great match but could never get the two of them together in the same place at the same time. When they finally did meet, they did in fact hit it off and they started dating. And on February 2nd their closest family and friends saw them share their vows and saw Roman put on a jean jacket as a sign of affection and commitment to Jen (her favorite item of clothing!). It was such a sweet, easy going, beautiful winter wedding.

We hope that winter weddings catch on because the glow from the snow makes for the most gorgeous lighting! So if you’re thinking of a winter wedding - DO IT!!

Lindsay & Ian | Engaged | Notre Dame Engagement Session

We all survived that crazy weather last week! And we happened to get Lindsay and Ian’s engagement session in just before the -40 degree weather. It was still really, really cold but the fresh snow fall the night before made the most perfect setting for their engagement session!

We walked around Notre Dame, stopped halfway though to warm up in the student center with some white chocolate mochas. And then we braved it for another 45 minutes!

We are beyond excited to capture their wedding day this November. They happen to be getting married at Tippecanoe Place, where Miles and I were married. And they’ll be tying the knot 3 years and 1 month to the day of when Miles and I were married there! It is going to be the most perfect day! I can’t wait!!
