Sarah & Clinton | Purdue Weddings | West Lafayette, IN

What happens when your bride is a professional event planner and your second photographer is a full time professional? You sigh a breath of relief and relax! What an incredibly easy day yesterday was. I don’t think there was a single moment that didn’t go to plan or image that wasn’t captured accordingly.

The families were also more than accommodating, they were nothing short of eager to help Micheal and I do our jobs. I really can’t overstate what an enjoyable time we had.

Michael did a fine job with the decor and cocktail hour at the Union while the bridal party and I toured campus...

UPDATE: View Trista and Jason’s website here.

It’s always nice creating wedding photography in beautiful venues like St. Mary’s Cathedral in Lafayette or the Purdue Memorial Union in West Lafayette, even better with the help of creative clients! Jason brought several ideas for photos with his groomsmen to the table and Trista suggested the wonderful reflection portrait. Family was all very accommodating as well, which is very helpful when working quickly with large groups.

Our bridal party was also a delightful, very attentive when necessary and of course more than willing to make a visit to Harry’s with the bride and groom!

As mentioned, the Purdue Union is a great location but it was elevated to something very special with the decor that was used at the reception on Saturday...

This also marked my first visit to eMbers Venue in Rensselaer, Indiana. Ryan and Janelle are old friends, so it was great to finally work with them in their ne...

Deanna and Jerry | Wedding Photography | Lafayette, Indiana

Planning a wedding can be difficult. Deanna and Jerry took it to a whole ‘nother level. They planned from Alaska, to be held in Lafayette, Indiana. Add on top of that the fact that months before the wedding Deanna moved to the east coast while Jerry stayed in Alaska. During this time apart they decided to plan a choreographed first dance (what!?!?). Jerry took lessons in Alaska and they practiced via skype. It all came together well and if I had not been so involved in the planning myself I would have never known it.

I want to give a big thank you to Becky Wood who was my second shooter all day. Her photos are clean, candid and honest moments, all things we love here at ISPhotographic.

I always have great respect for couples who write their own vows. Marci and Jeff’s self-written vows were indeed one of a kind. Marci is a planner and loves to talk. Jeff is quiet and easy going.

I had been to Stockwell United Methodist years ago for a wedding, suffice to say it has changed quite a bit. Nearly one hundred percent. However, the tried and true gazebo was still there and it came in handy. Morgan had wanted to use their fountain for her reveal but it turned out...
