Happy anniversary and a flashback from 4 years ago of Kristyn and Patrick’s spring wedding at Tippecanoe Place here in South Bend. It was a great celebration at the old Studebaker mansion in the historic district downtown. Enjoy some of our favorites from the celebration!
Kristyn made a dramatic entrance to the landing of the grand staircase at the mansion. I always liked how the lines of the bannister and dark interior woodworking leads your eye right to the couple on the landing. Natural light from second story windows highlighted them wonderfully during the ceremony.
Outdoor portraits contrasted the deep colors of carved wood interior decor with the light stone arches on the mansion’s front entrance perfectly. No matter where the photos happened there was no shortage of smiles and great times!
Rumor has it there may be some 6 months portraits of their little boy appearing here soon!
Congrats again, newlyweds!
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 best parts of my job – creative energy. It’s the stuff that can keep me bouncing around a reception dance floor till midnight snapping away.
Introducing Beth and Jeff, amazing Memorial Day couple #2 and stars of September 26th!
We had such a relaxing time wandering the wooded yard and rooms of the house. It felt less like fake-Saturday Monday and more like a lounging Sunday afternoon hearing all about Jeff’s proposal in the Hawaiian islands and sharing laughs while photographing these lovebirds.
Enough from me, some photos already!
Ok one fun / odd one too. The bathroom had mirrors at every turn and made for some tricky angles to keep myself out of the photo and some strange reflections once I started shooting.
Hall of mirrors. Lots of reflections, maybe some cloning – the middle set of reflections has 2 Beths!
