lauren and tanner | indianapolis wedding photographer

Lauren and Tanner had a perfect wedding. It doesn’t even seem like there was rain, wind and a bridal party that spent some time hiding in the party bus. It was such a good wedding that ALL of that seems like a little blip on the screen. The perfection of the day was so loud that their love, their ceremony and their party was all that mattered. It was an amazing day.

I am so glad that our paths crossed… I’m so grateful for our engagement session, our cocktails over dinner, and our back and forth banter to create a timeline that made perfect sense. I’m so glad that I was able to share this day with you two. Your love for each other is so big, so major… and so fun. It’s what love is supposed to look like. And it was a pleasure to document the day for you.

And as a side note to everyone else reading this blog: this is the perfect example of how doing a first look can positively impact your wedding photography. They had their moment. It was awesome. And, then we rolled. We went to the War Memorial, we waited out the rain, our bus driver got lost, we climbed to the roof of a parking garage (and by “climbed”, I mean we took an elevator), we even went to a bar and we had a cocktail. Then we split back up, drove to the church separately (girls in the first bus, gents in the second)… and still had PLENTY of time to spare. After the ceremony, we rocked out family photos, grabbed a few shots at Union Station and headed to the party. I am thrilled with how many photos we got. And I don’t think they’d change a moment of it. All a photographer can ask for is time. If you can pull off a traditional (non-first look) timeline with enough time, I’m all for it. But the best way to create enough time to get all of the images that you want… a first look.
