About Us

Indianapolis Wedding Photographers | TALL + small Photography

Greetings! We’re Mike and Erin, TALL + small, respectively. We’re based in Bloomington, Indiana but are packed and ready to travel: especially back to our old stomping grounds in Virginia! We bring a team approach to event coverage and portraiture sessions that few other pairs can match. At 6’5″ (according to him) and at 5’0″ (according to her), we are able to capture moments that you, a normal-sized person, could hardly imagine.

For family and wedding documentaries, we want to make your moments last by creating photographs that are timeless and artistic with a dash of zaniness. For promotional materials and portraits, we will help make you appear slightly cooler than you already are. Check things out, and, if you’d like: Hit us up (or down)!

Jess + Jon | Wedding | Indianapolis, IN

Jess + Jon had an absolutely lovely wedding at Laurel Hall in Indianapolis. Jess had her hair done by Lauren at Bobby Cooper, makeup by Andi from Something Blue, flowers from Posh Petals, and hand lettering on placecards (which was awesome) by Erin Barrett from For the Love of Letters. Theresa Trammel played the harp beautifully while Tucker Woerner led a jazz quartet from Butler U’s school of music. Catering was by Hoaglin’s which included some really rad mini burgers and milkshakes at the end of the night! These two had a blast, were so laid back, and had a really sweet and friendly crew to celebrate with them. Speaking of, family + friends can check out the rest in the client galleryCongrats, you two!

Megan + Will | Wedding | Crozet, VA

Megan + Will, whose engagement session got all historical, got married in a splendid winter fashion at the lovely King Family Vineyards outside of Charlottesville, VA! Megan had a lovely dress as well as her hair/make-up. Foodflowers, cupcakes, donuts, limos, planning, and officiating were all wonderful, as well! Special music by The Whiskey Rebellion accented the day! While it was snowy and cold, they seemed to have timed it well as it was a beautiful day! Their friends and family were very fun and got silly in the photobooth! They can see more from the photobooth and wedding in the client gallery. Megan + Will, who have a cooking blog, are off to fun adventures and we wish them the best! Congrats!
