Kaitlyn and Alex | Downtown South Bend Engagement Session

When I first met with Kaitlyn and Alex at the Chicory Cafe, I knew right away I wanted to photograph their wedding. A May wedding at the new River House Bed and Breakfast at The Morris Estate. An intimate affair for their closest family and friends to celebrate their marriage! And Bed and Breakfast weddings will always have such a special place in my heart, because Miles and I were married at a bed and breakfast, and all our families stayed the weekend with us there. It was perfect and I know that Kaitlyn and Alex’s wedding in just 3 short weeks will be too.


We had so much fun in the warm weather. We talked about their final wedding plans and the excitement was written all over their faces. They beamed as they talked about their day, knowing it was just a month away. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding, I know it is going to be full of so many laughs, so much love, and maybe a few happy tears!

Lexie and Ado | Engaged | Downtown South Bend Engagement Session

I am so excited to show you Lexie and Ado’s engagement session in Downtown South Bend! These two are so in love! We had so much fun laughing and joking around and talking about their March wedding. He laughed, but he nailed the nuzzle and quickly realized he could just take a nap as he was nuzzling his fiancee!

I am so thankful that Lexie contacted me after I photographed her brother’s wedding this June. It’s going to be another beautiful day full of love and a little sadness as Ado will be leaving for the Navy just weeks after.

This is my last engagement session of 2018 and with that I am all caught up on blog posts for the year - I will likely do a few here and there in the month of December but don’t worry! We’ll be back with weddings in FEBRUARY this year!
