Carrie & Seth { Indiana & Michigan Wedding Photography } Portage, Ogden Dunes and The Allure, LaPorte

Wow.  I’ve been waiting patiently for Carrie and Seth to get married since we booked more than a year ago.  After their engagement session in Indianapolis last spring, I couldn’t wait to see them again.    I didn’t have to wait long.  Their family friends, Carolyn and Mark, were married this weekend last year.  Not only did I have the chance to hang with them at THAT wedding, I photographed the Barnum family on the shores of Ogden Dunes the night before.  I love Carrie & Seth time!  The love they have for each other, and their appreciation of their time together, was so obvious immediately.  They just radiate.  So for the past year, I’ve been hanging on every e-mail, watching the amazing details unfold!

Being with Carrie, Seth, their families, and friends was an incredible experience.  So much love and fun set a constantly perfect, stressless mood, even with a timeline for photos between Portage and LaPorte that I knew would be a challenge.  The day was planned to the minute, and every minute flew by, on time, and filled with a positive spirit that reminds me why I work every weekend making just okay money– Photographing incredible individuals in love, with those close and supportive by their side.  I’m fulfilled by days just like this one.



They look so happy considering this limo bus had no air conditioning.  Is this normal?  Half of my couples this year have had this happen.

How nice, the mural has exactly enough spots!

Then off to Ogden Dunes, Carrie’s home, for photos.


This was my first wedding at the Allure.  I’ve seen a million photos there, and not one outside.  Every always says the outside is terrible, but honestly, I think it looks sweet.  In fact, I briefly lived in an apartment in the residential neighborhood  that it’s nestled in.  I remember going to this building, then the FOE, for pancake breakfasts and hardcore shows.  They really did an incredible job on the rehab!

Love the flowers and apples by Lake Effect Florals!  My favorite florist!

Seth fixed up these old bikes for the wedding day, incredible!


DJ Wade from 27 Entertainment rocked it out!  I’m telling you, this was a dream team of vendors.  This is the ONLY DJ that I suggest to clients.  Not just in the area, at all.  Book them and you will not be sorry!

Such an incredible wedding, and incredible group!  Like 20 new facebook friends for me, in fact.  I couldn’t be happier for these two, and cannot wait to watch them grow over the years, and capture that too!
