Chris’ Senior Session

I started out last week with a lineup of shoots and the expectation of a little walking and fresh air while photographing some cool folks. I met Chris on Notre Dame University Campus and was pretty stoked he was up for a wander around campus without any pre-planned shots (read: make photographer think on his feet).

We wandered away from Notre Dame Avenue, the Golden Dome, football stadium, Basilica and lakes in search of some new sites. Granted by “new” I mean not the usual requested spots – not that there’s anything wrong with that. Good to explore a little and just see what you run across.

Thanks again, Chris, best of luck on the last few weeks of classes!

Lauren and Andrew’s Basilica Wedding at Notre Dame

Who says rain on your wedding day is bad news? I loved the things the rain did for photos of Lauren and Andrew’s wedding at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on Notre Dame Campus. Andrew and the gents walked from the Morris Inn on campus to the Basilica and the sprinkle was no match for the determined groomsmen.

Besides making puddles and rainbows, rainy shoots are great for

  • Saturated colors, textures, and puddles to use for reflections!
  • Rainbows! (none that I saw Saturday though)
  • Very few people meandering campus!
  • Kept things cool for the 11am mass when the evening was nothing short of sweltering!
  • And of course, proving just how determined a couple is to enjoy their day regardless of weather!

It was no surprise that “A Touch of Whimsy” was their unofficial theme. You couldn’t have stopped Lauren and Andrew from smiling if you had tried!

The Morris Inn not only kept us very cool for the reception but the large windows provided magically diffused light throughout the room. It was like having a wall made out of softboxes (non-technical translation = very happy photographer!)

Newlyweds Twittered

This morning before his wedding at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Andrew and his groomsmen were cracking up about Twitter and “tweeting” about everything during the wedding.

So I did.

Love of the Irish – Notre Dame Basilica Weddings

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

Now that it seems Spring is finally here in South Bend, Indiana, everything is greening up beautifully outside. Today, of course, it seems everyone is trying to do the same for Saint Pat’s celebrations. (Of course, with the exception of my friend Joel who wore red in support of those with red/green color blindness.)

What better time to celebrate Irish heritage than with our favorite photos of the LOVE of the Irish?!

Enjoy the albums below as well as galleries of our favorites from the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on Notre Dame University campus

Guestbook Album Design – Tim and Jaclyn

Ever since I began including an Engagement Session in the Memoirs Photography Packages it’s been a busy summer snapping on location with my awesome couples. I’ve had too much fun to limit it to just one package so now ALL my Wedding Photography Packages INCLUDE an Engagement Session!

I’d like to sidetrack for a sec – a COMPLIMENTARY ENGAGEMENT SESSION!?! You got it!

During shoots I have been having a blast getting to hang out with my “Soonlyweds” engaged couples. Trips to the beach, strolls around Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s campuses, parks… and did I mention FUN? Take a break from all the hard work you’re putting into planning your big day and just let it out. Want to shout, laugh, run in the waves, play in the park or just dance to leave your planning behind and hang out with your photographers? Go for it!

Something NEW I’ll be offering is a Custom Guestbook chock full of the photos from your relaxing and fun Engagement Session. Instead of just a plain page for your guests to sign a book you will tuck away somewhere, why not show off your photos too?! Keep those names in a book you’ll look at over and over again!

So for the FIRST EVER design of this kind from eB Photography… feast your wedding planning, photo loving eyes on this page-turner put together from Jaclyn and Tim’s engagement shoot. Enjoy!

Congrats Bridget & Doug!

We celebrated a great wedding day with Bridget & Doug on Saturday. What a fantastic day with the Purdue and Ridell families celebrating at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart and taking an easygoing afternoon’s portraits around the Notre Dame campus. (Huge thanks to the folks who let us all into the football stadium too!)
