Trust. Brides choose me because they trust me. They trust me to guide them in their planning process to make sure they get the pictures that they want--and more. From planning a fun experiential engagement session that showcases their unique story to helping plan the wedding day schedule for success, I'm there! With a team of 2 professional photographers, you will get all the "must-get" pictures and more! From family formals, to posed shots, story telling images, and details, I've got you covered. And we'll sneak in a few creative "end of night shots" just for fun! Brides who reserve their wedding photography with me invest in peace of mind and reduce their risk of disappointment. My brides know that wedding photography is a significant investment, but they know that it is money well-spent when they hug their finished wedding album, smell the leather, and relive their wedding day memories with this first family heirloom.

Mission and vision are a high priority to you.

You or someone you love is in active military duty, reserves, or a veteran.

You or someone you love works in healthcare or is a first responder.

You are passionate about service--doing good and giving back.

You might be a good fit if....


When your pictures are ready a few weeks after the wedding, I will schedule an ordering appointment either in person or via web conference so that you can view your images and make selections for you wedding album, prints, and wall art! When final design proofs are agreed upon, and any balance due is paid, I'll order your artwork. From this meeting until artwork is in hand can take on average 3-4 weeks depending on how quickly you make decisions and how many revisions are needed. 

Get your Artwork!

Get Married!


This is your wedding day!  I will assist you through the day as we photograph according to plans, but you have the ultimate say if you wish to change the plans mid-stream. My job is to guide you through the process and make things as easy as possible for you to enjoy the day while I document your story. I typically post a sneak peek to social media within a week or so of your wedding.


About a month out from your wedding I generally send you a rough schedule for the day which you and your wedding planner can feedback on. Then I'll prepare an updated final schedule so everyone will know when and where to be ready for pictures. Also during this time I will collect a lot of information about your wedding via online questionnaires. Your final payment will be due no later than 2 weeks prior your wedding. 

Get on the Calendar!

Let's Get Acquainted!


Step One is to get in touch! I'm happy to chat via email, but scheduling a face to face meeting either in-person or via web meeting is even better so we can get to know each other and can get all your questions answered. This is a great time to consider including an engagement session to your reservation. The reservation is confirmed with an electronic contract and first payment (usually 50%).

This West Bridge Church (Danville, IN) wedding was especially sweet as it was held at my home church, and bride Kara is a young aspiring photographer who I enjoy mentoring. 

Kara & Mitch

A church wedding was important to this couple, and the beautiful Tabernacle Presbyterian Church in Indianapolis with its stained glass windows made the perfect setting for Stephanie and Richards wedding vows!

Stephanie & Richard

The Fowler House in Lafayette was the venue of choice for Jessica and Nick's outdoor wedding in August. The bride arrived in her uncle's blue vintage car and the I do's were exchanged below the grand staircase.
