Mel + Charles | Engagement | Bloomington, IN

We had suspicions that Mel + Charles would be fun to work with and those suspicions were confirmed immediately upon arriving at their home. It was there where they showed us a very hilarious old-timey photo of the two of them. The details are blurry but let’s just say the image certainly contained shotguns and Charles wearing only his underwear. The first shots you see below are not from some rad Bloomington park. Nope. This is their backyard. Awesome. They both are very outdoorsy and love camping and letting their dog run around (which it is wont to do). Oh, by the way, this session just happened. It’s not from an old, end-of-summer-in-Bloomington day. This was in January! The unseasonably warm weather had us feeling great but we were even more excited when Mel told us they wanted pics with her El Camino. The perfect car/truck. Utility and beauty combined. Later, we popped over to Bloomington Antique Mall and took some pics in Mel’s friend’s shop: A-Z Vintage . (BTW locals, some pretty great deals on sweet vintage hats and pearl button shirts there!). Then, as with many nights for these two, they ended up at their favorite Bloomington bar, Atlas, where we really got to see them in their element. Their summer, picnic-style Louisville wedding has us hungry and happy already. Congrats Mel + Charles!

Three Little Weddings | Bloomington, IN

We have had an extremely fun year getting to be a part of such a wide variety of weddings. Take a peek HERE to see some of those. Planning weddings involve lots of external pressures. The wedding industry, family members, friends, and media like to throw out a lot of “shoulds” when it comes to having a wedding. You should wear this. Eat this. Take pictures of this. Invite these specific people. This can become overwhelming and for good reason. While we’re fans of traditional, big, party-time, and all-day weddings, we’re equally fans of small, intimate, and brief ceremonies and elopements. We’re the biggest fans of couples who sit back and think through what’s most important to them, first, and then work out the particulars. We like coming in at this point and helping to document what it is they want, and keeping our eyes open for those little things that otherwise would go unseen. The end of the year has brought us the opportunity to document several small ceremonies. Here are a few sneak peeks from some recent Bloomington ceremonies. The first took us back to Beck Chapel where we’ve been a few times this year, each unique. Next, to the county courthouse, where we broke our record of fewest people at a ceremony with a total of six including the officiant’s young daughter and us. Finally, to a home on Thanksgiving day where we were offered lots of food and drink and had to sadly refuse it so as not to spoil our own huge meal (Tall baked five pies). Sincere congrats to all of you.

Becca Dilley - I love small weddings – lots of opportunity for quiet moments like these.

Liz + Doug | Engagement | Louisville, KY

Before portrait sessions, we always suggest that folks pick places that are important to them: places where they like to hang out and that give them good vibes. This helps these sessions feel a bit more meaningful and personal. For us, it is always a treat to discover these spots and to find out what they mean to people. Liz + Doug took us to several really hip Louisville spots. First, we went to Goss Avenue Antiques & Interiors where Liz likes to get lost and dig around in all of its rad stuff. This suits her because we really dig her Mad Men-esque style and look! Doug, the drummer in a rocking Louisville outfit, CABIN, enjoys checking out the music gear there, too. Next, we found out that Carmichael’s Bookstore isn’t just any old bookstore to these two. It’s where Doug smoothly planted a ring and note into a journal that an attendant suggested to Liz: a pretty incredible proposal for these bookworms! Then to Nachbar, where Liz + Doug get to enjoy their other favorite things: beer and their doggies. We have thoroughly enjoyed meeting and hanging out with these two. Other persons who enjoy them as much as we do might also like to see the rest of this set in the Client Gallery. Congrats Liz + Doug and we’ll see you soon!
