County Line Apple Orchard | Hobart, Indiana

This engagement session was so sweet. Not only did I have the opportunity to capture James and Katie, but also their precious baby boy and their two pups! And as difficult as it may sound to photography two adults, a baby, and two dog – surprisingly we got what we needed of everyone and both pups looking at me!

I met Katie last year to discuss her 2017 wedding at Sandy Pines Pavilion. She was so excited for it, of course, and I am amazed that it is almost here! She planned for everything to be pretty much finished before her precious boy was born (how smart).

Their big day will be here in no time, and I cannot wait to capture these two again! These two made their session simple considering it took nothing for Katie to laugh. Literally. I would say my common line of “Whisper something in her ear to make her laugh” and before I even finished my sentence, she would laugh!

I know their day will be filled with laughter and joy, and I cannot wait! Thank you, James and Katie, for choosing me and giving me the honor to capture these precious moments!

 

With love,

Kayla

Downtown Chesterton | Chesterton, Indiana

Janelle and Jonathan were so fun to work with! They were so bubbly and easy to talk to, which made their session go so smooth! We met in downtown Chesterton for their engagement session which made a beautiful back drop for these two.

Janelle’s dress was purchased by Jonathan in Nashville, which made me love her dress even more! And they ended their session with cubs jerseys, which was adorable.

Janelle has a smile that brightened every picture and Jonathan has a way of bringing that smile out of her. These two love birds are so sweet and I am so excited and honored to be capturing the 2018 wedding!!

Thank you, Janelle and Jonathan, for choosing me as your wedding photographer to capture these important moments!

With Love,

Kayla

New Buffalo, Michigan

GUYS! This E Session was seriously amazing. Abby and Zac were so natural with each other and they chose my favorite spot EVER for engagement sessions – New Buffalo. They actually drove almost 2 hours for this session, and thankfully they both said it was worth the drive. Whew.

Their E Session made me even more excited for their wedding day. I cannot wait to capture these two again, at my FAVORITE venue – Sandy Pines Pavilion.

Abby and her mom met with me last year and booked me for her September wedding. They both were so sweet and finally getting to meet Zac for the Engagement session only strengthened my excitement because he was equally as sweet!

It was easy for Kris and I to talk and laugh with them during the session which made Kris and I both leave with saying “Their big day will be so fun!”

So, Abby and Zac, thank you for allowing us to capture these moments and we cannot wait to capture your wedding day moments!!!

With love,

Kayla

I had the privilege of photographing Troy and Taylor soon after their wedding! They married last month and had amazing things to say about their big day, but with rain interfering, their pictures were limited. So I had the honor of taking their bridal portraits shortly after their big day!

Which was amazing, because we just got to relax and I was able capture these two still in awe of being married yet in no rush or overwhelming emotion!

I worked with Taylor for a year or two when I was working at a tanning salon and we both would talk often about marrying our boyfriends (what girls don’t?) and now husbands! I am so happy for her and Troy and wish nothing but the very best for the both of them!

 

Cant wait for you to see the rest of your session. Thank you again for allowing me to capture these!

With Love,

Kayla

Hobart, Indiana | Ambassador Hall

Matt and Savana married at a church in Valparaiso and celebrated at the Ambassador in Hobart. This wedding was in the making for over two years. I was booked my Savana two years prior to the big day and I was so excited when their wedding was finally here! I knew how much time they took into planning this day and it truly showed.

Matt, Savana, their whole bridal party, and their parents were seriously the sweetest and made our jobs super easy!

It was definitely an emotional event as the were tears several times throughout the day, even before the wedding even started! Savana and Matt were finally marrying the love of their life, so tears were of course necessary.

 

Savana and Matt, thank you so much for allowing us to capture these moments for you!

 

With love,

Kayla

County Line Orchard | Hobart, Indiana

This is a wedding I am thrilled to capture this September! Skylar and Jacob were so natural together. One of the easiest engagement sessions to date! They learned the poses quickly and rocked the advanced poses.

Skylar contacted me last winter wanting to book and then soon after I received a message from her mom wanting to surprise her by booking me! I was able to send my welcome box which allowed Skylar to open it for Christmas and it was the sweetest surprise to be a part of! With how easy going this E session went, I know it is a reflection of how the wedding day will go. I can’t wait to be a part of it!

Thank you again Skylar and Jacob for allowing me to capture these moments and more moments to come!!

With love, Kayla

Tuscany Falls | Mokena, Illinois

Zach and Ashley married June 9, 2017 at St Liborius in Steger, Illinois. After, they celebrated their marriage at Tuscany Falls in Mokena, Illinois. Due to Zach being stationed in Georgia, and neither of them knowing when he would be home to plan an engagement session, I hadn’t had a chance to meet Ashley and Zach until the morning of their big day! But, we did talk several times throughout the past many months about the wedding, about me designing her invitations, and many other details regarding their day. It is usually rare for me to not meet my couples at some point before their day, but Ashley and Zach were immediately super easy to work with. They were so natural with each other that even without the posing practice for the E session, they still easily flowed into each pose.

Not only did Zach and Ashley get married as a milestone, but in less than two weeks they will both be moving to Georgia! With that being said, Thank you, Zach, for your service. You will both be in my prayers for this new adventure in your lives! Thank you so much again for choosing me to capture these wonderful, unforgettable memories!!

With love,

Kayla

Lutherwald Camp | Howe, Indiana

Molly contacted me last year talking about her wedding and I soon realized we would get along when I saw she had Type A personality regarding her organization skills. I honestly didn’t understand how great her organization skills were until I saw her wedding timeline PACKET! It was literally the greatest thing I had ever seen. So, safe to say that things definitely stayed on track.

I had never been anywhere near Howe, Indiana, but once I was able to walk the campground and see how incredible it was, I was immediately excited. It has incredible view and was so unique. This campground is the campground that Molly’s father was a camper at, as well as Molly! She also served as a camp counselor here as well. So, it was obviously very sentimental to have her wedding here and it was absolutely perfect!

Molly and Chris truly were so sweet and also to each other. They were easy to photograph at their engagement, which you can view HERE, and their wedding day was no different!

Kris and I adored this wedding and had fun the entire day!

Thank you, Molly and Chris, for choosing us as your wedding photographers and allowing us to capture your big day!!

Have so much fun in Punta Cana!

With love, Kayla

The flower girl was my ‘helper’ for portraits and helped get the ladies to smile by giving them funny faces. Adorable, right?!Thanks Kris, for these two that I LOVE! Just a little dance session on the boat 

More gorgeous shots from Kris! <3

Sandy Pines Pavilion | Demotte, Indiana

Earlier this year, I received an email from Adrienne about booking me for her June wedding. I, of course, get excited about every bride that I book because I know I will get to know them throughout the months and it is an honor being chosen for such an important day. I got to meet Adrienne and Riley at their engagement session at the Sunken Gardens in Huntington, Indiana! They are both from Northwest Indiana, but currently are in school in Huntington. I was super excited to capture their session somewhere unique to them, but loved it even more when I saw how incredible this spot was! You can find there engagement session HERE!

These two are so sweet and so comical together. Riley is majoring in Theatre and both him and Adrienne have performed in various plays. This definitely showed in their expressions and most certainly on the dance floor with their guests! It was the most lively dance floor I ever had the privilege of capturing!

These two were all about each other and the celebration and covenant of their marriage. It was such an honor and privilege to capture this for these two. And thank you Riley for serving in the National Guard.

 

Enjoy Oregon you two!!!

Adrienne and her girls were ready early so we did a switch for the girls and guys so Adrienne could play some Mario Cart!! (Never has something like that happened where everything was finished and relaxed for a bride to enjoy some MarioCart!!)

Sandy Pines Pavilion | Demotte, Indiana

I have so many words I could say about this wedding day! (I will probably say something of that sort about all of my weddings this year, because I know they will all be amazing!) It has truly been a pleasure getting to know Chelsea and Tom. I met Chelsea when she was a bridesmaid for a former bride of mine. She was such a sweet heart then and when she contacted me for her own wedding, I was thrilled! I then got to meet the lovely Tom at the consultation and I became even more excited. They both were so similar, so calm, sweet, and just ready to be married!

The engagement session went so smooth and they were naturals with each other! I knew this wedding day would be a breeze and so much fun. Which is exactly what it was. Kris and I loved every single part of this wedding day and we kept telling each other through out the day how much we loved it!

Chelsea and Tom had such an incredible wedding party and a truly sweet family. It was so incredible how many told us what a wonderful job we were doing and thanked us. Sweet words always mean SO much to us!

Tom and Chelsea, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to capture this day for you! You two were such a joy to capture.

Enjoy your honeymoon!!

With love, Kayla.

THIS. Is why I LOVE first looks!

We got to meet their adorable pup, Biggie!

Tom wore his father’s cufflinks <3

Thanks, Hubs, for this one! ^ (And several more, but he did a great job with this one!)

Such an INCREDIBLE wedding party!

I just couldnt forget about the most adorable ring bearer! He listened SO well and was SO stinkin sweet!!
