Cincinnati Wedding Photographer:: Stephanie and Bobby’s Southeast Indiana Wedding:: that time I was shot with a firework…

It threatened rain all morning and into the afternoon, even sprinkling here and there,
with a cloud of humidity sticking to everyone and everything.

But Stephanie and Bobby made it work
on their very “Indiana summer” wedding day.
       (a new and awesome phrase. meaning, it was hot. and humid.)
But it was perfect.
We choose to shoot outside whenever possible, but with the weather that day,
we were inclined to shoot the wedding party inside the church.
No big deal, except… we had very limited space, and there wasn’t room for me inside,
so… we made it work.
I stood outside, propped the doors open, and shot the bridal party standing inside the church.
Very new, cutting-edge techniques here, folks.

(Thanks again, Stephanie, for being such an awesome bride
and for having such an awesome and willing wedding party. You guys totally made it work. :) )

So, the weather wasn’t the best, but whatever.
Stephanie has such a beautiful spirit and a beautiful smile
that once the guests saw her walking down the aisle,
the intense heat was nothing but an afterthought for all of us.

And as soon as the wedding ended, the air became drier, the sun came out, and the birds began singing…
(ok, so I don’t really know if that last part happened,
but I’m pretty sure it might have…)

We got a few photos in the sunlight before heading to one of the best receptions I’ve been a part of.

So the day was, indeed, a fantaaaaastic day. :)

[OH. MY. GOODNESS. The excitement and happiness is too much. I love it.]
[wedding party of the year – thanks, you all, for not thinking me to be completely crazy. :)
you guys rocked the quirks of the day, and I’m so grateful you were so great!]
Stephanie, I have no words. You’re just so dang BEAUTIFUL!!!
[these jerseys have made their debut here before. I think it was the perfect way to enter the reception.]
[fun fact:: I WAS HIT IN THE ARM WITH A FIREWORK THIS NIGHT.
I would elaborate… but there’s really not much else to say.
The fireworks were close (and gorgeous), but the parking lot was littered
with FIREY, SMOKING DEBRIS.
And a squirrelly, gone-awry “shell” of sorts got all,
“I’m coming after you.” And it did. It came after me.
 I mean, I WAS PRACTICALLY SHOT.
Oh, well. Hazard of the job, I suppose.]
Stephanie and Bobby::
You guys are so great. We have truly loved getting to know you.
I’m so happy for you both, and I am so thankful we were a part of this day!
And to your family and friends:: you guys were the best!

  • Today, while we shot birthday photos for this girl (I can’t believe she’ll be two in a few weeks 😱😭), we talked about aunt Sallie and how today is her birthday. The irony that we’re planning a birthday while mourning a birthday is not lost on me. But I know that Sallie would love that we’re celebrating her through celebrating our girl. 🎈 #ohmywinnie

  • wow! a huge thanks to @todayswomannow for sharing this story!! 🎉❤️ (local friends, it’s in their most recent issue 👏🏻)
.
we made an unpopular decision a few months ago by getting rid of almost all of our social media and keeping Winnie as far away from it as we can. and it’s been so rewarding. 🙌🏻 Winnie still gets shown off from time to time, but keeping our real lives with her off of this app (and Facebook, Twitter, etc) is one of the best decisions we’ve made as parents.

“When it comes to our kids, we are in the midst of a ‘large uncontrolled experiment’.” Technology (ie, smartphones and social media) is the only thing that we throw blindly at our kids without knowing how it will impact their futures. I’m not saying our choice is the right choice for everyone, but I am saying to do your research. #ohmywinnie

  • I am SO READY for fall weather. 🍁 Summer is great, I don't mind it, whatever. But I've been talking about fall more and more recently, and OHMYGOSH CAN IT GET HERE ALREADY. 😫
.
Fall mini sessions will take place on 10/6 and 10/27. Both will be here in Southern Indiana. One weekend might have the option for Christmas themed props, I haven't decided on that part yet (if this is something you would want, comment and let me know which weekend would be better for you). 🎄 If these two dates don't work, don't fret... I almost always open up a third weekend for them once I get the first two booked. 🙌🏻

  • I have a lot of bad days. I don’t always share them here - maybe I should. or maybe it’s good that I don’t because who wants to hear me whine, am I right? 🤨 it’s just that some days (Sundays) are especially difficult when Winnie doesn’t see Shane even once all day. and you know she asks about him aaaall day. 😩  but thanks to my sweet friends who checked in on me after my post yesterday. you guys are the best and really I’m fine. 🖤 now, if Monday could just get on with it because, ugh, mooonnndddaaayyy. 😒😖 #ohmywinnie

  • no clever caption or insightful thoughts about this photo. 🤷🏼‍♀️ it’s just a photo that makes me happy, and I need a little of that right now because sometimes Sundays are hard. 😞
