Congrats Emily & Tomas! Click here to sign up for a reminder when all the wedding day photos are available!
After a busy Thanksgiving week it was a great treat to spend a holiday weekend afternoon out for a very leisurely engagement session with Emily and Tomas. Between an away football game day and Thanksgiving travels, Notre Dame University campus was unusually quiet this afternoon. Even with occasional wind gusts it was an unseasonably nice late November afternoon to start →

This weekend kicks off my favorite season in Indiana - autumn! It's also jam packed with great photo shoots, today's celebrating Anne & Marty's wedding at Notre Dame University's Basilica of the Sacred heart, fun around town and a swinging reception at the Palais Royale Ballroom downtown! Here are some favorite photos from their October engagement portraits on Notre Dame campus →
One of the skills I've found essential to wedding photography is that of flexibility. I love the spontaneity of wedding day photography. Even if I've photographed in the same church and reception venue for brides with the same first name two days in a row (and did a few years back) it's never the exact same day twice. I've collected a →
Perfectly fitting snow day post. (Reports of nearly 2-3 feet of drifting snow in the last 24 hours here in South Bend!) Just before Christmas Katie and Lawrence caught up with me for a sunny and snowy winter engagement session. Turns out the date was the 1-year anniversary of their engagement! In addition to the celebration it was also a perfectly →
We wrapped up December and 2010 with two wintry engagement sessions before Christmas and 2011 arrived. Started the year's finale with Tyler & Dakota on a bitter cold morning downtown. 9:00 am sounds like a good start until Indiana winter decides to blast you with icy wind! We ducked inside nearby buildings between gusts of wind for a mix of →
What a great back to school weekend heading to the Indiana University campus in Bloomington, Indiana with Melissa and Jim. We started off where the wedding story started when Jim asked Melissa to be his wife. Melissa and Jim were into the fountain before I knew it, couldn't blame them on such a sunny summer afternoon! Lots of Cream and Crimson around →
I'm up late prepping for another double-shoot day this weekend, wrapping up 2 from Friday, ready to kick the weekend into high gear! Today's celebration with Joy & David, here's the first inning of the custom wedding guest book from a rather great proposal that might just make you shout "Holy cow!" Harry Caray style. Proposal via Wrigley Field scoreboard? I'm →
Hit the road last Friday and went to Syracuse, Indiana for Joy Kroemer & David Dulen's engagement session along Lake Wawasee. Perfect evening for a little road trip and a lakeside engagement session with a fun couple! We're looking forward to a great time celebrating with Joy & David this weekend! Keep an eye out for more photos or get a →
I think one of the things I like best about my work telling engagement and wedding stories through photography is getting to see so many friends happy. Diana, Roger and I met up at the Beutter Park river walks in Mishawaka for a sunny evening of photos. Sara grew up just blocks away from Battell and Beutter Parks and we spent →
I was pretty excited when this Wedding Guest Book arrived so I grabbed the video camera and started rambling recording. Here's a preview of the Custom Guest Books included in our Memoirs Photography Package and available for all weddings! I've got to brag on the couple, the idea for the themed shoot was totally theirs. At our first meeting, the bride →
Early this winter while working with friends Judah at Fourth Tribe concerts and Jake at the River Bank venue to plan spring concert productions, I got let in on a big secret: Jake planned on proposing at the show. (Insert wailing guitar here!) I gotta say he was looked pretty nervous while Armana Reign played and he waited to grab the →
Just a warning - you may find yourself saying "Oh I wish I'd thought to do that for my engagement!" - I have numerous times already. We'll still gladly help put together a creative shoot for you - drop us a line! Ok end of disclaimer. -eB I'm pretty stoked to present one of the many creative things we've helped put →

Monday I posted a handful of Beth and Jeff's wedding previews from their Saturday wedding, still working on a write up blog post about all the fun after a triple-event weekend. (Notre Dame football away game weekends are off the hook!) Beth's note made my Monday, and I've just got to share it (with permission, of course!) Hey Eric and Sara! We are →
Whoa. A shoot like Sunday's 1940s themed Engagement Session with Caroline and Josh was the perfect way to wrap up a busy weekend. I'm digging through the 1500+ photos we shot of prep and all around the bluffs and beach at Silver Beach in Saint Joseph, Michigan. Yep, 1500 photos, and in less than 2 hours of daylight. It's easy to →
Cool couple + perfect afternoon + small town, Indiana + Lake Michigan beach + Chicago Skyline background + perfect sunset + not feeling like you're "working" = WOW! Yes that all just happened. I was floored. A cool couple without any of the above makes for a great shoot, but all of them combined and I'm floored! More photos ahead from Gena →
This fella stole the show today. Jenny & Pat brought Hemi, their 9 month old Chocolate Lab puppy for a run around Notre Dame Campus and their engagement session. I think he had about much fun as Jenny & Pat did! Here's a couple sneak peeks from this evening's engagement portraits around Notre Dame University campus. More posted soon!
Memorial Day seriously messed with my internal calendar. From March till November my calendar weeks start on Saturday. This week, Monday became Saturday with a morning wedding and two evening portrait shoots. For all the caffeine I drank that morning and afternoon, I never felt tired out being on the go for 14 hours straight because of one of the →
I put together a quick sample of our work for a friend of ours planning a summer 2009 wedding and thought I'd better share the summery favorites from last year's engagement sessions. Nice warm thoughts from the toasty beach shoots should warm up this odd weather December. The shoreline was definitely this year's favorite location - hard to beat working →
