If you’ve followed my photography for any good length of time you’ve seen this young lady before – on stage, dressed to impress, and followed by my brags of all kinds. Add to the brags a mega dose of pride as she’s graduated high school and headed off to college this fall! Congrats, Marissa, and best of luck in your studies!

Warm Weather Wedding Flashback – Tracy and Andrew

east race bridge newlyweds bridal party kissHappy (extended) Valentine’s Day weekend! As snow graces northern Indiana once again this morning I ran across this warm, colorful, endearing portrait of newlyweds Tracy & Andrew while perusing a catalog of my favorite wedding photos. This moment of warm smiles & toasty temperatures comes from a sunny Saturday in July 2007. Enough of this winter weather, I think we’re all ready for spring.


Stay toasty! -eB

The snow hasn’t let up any since Sarah & Phil met me for their wintry maternity portraits a few weeks back. Not a bit. I wished for a white Christmas and I’ve been eating my frost-covered, freezer-burnt words ever since. These two lovebirds, however, just couldn’t get enough of the winter weather!

Congrats to Sarah and Phil on braving the weather for some snowy snapshots as you count down to your baby girl’s arrival soon!
