To quote our dear friends… Mumford and Sons, “Where you invest your love, you invest your life.”
There is no doubt where Claire and Kyle have invested their love. From our first meeting, it was obvious they were made for each other. Their love and friendship compliments the other so well. Claire’s go-get ’em attitude is the type of attitude everyone wishes they had more of, but she is so balanced with a beautiful, kind soul who hugs you and makes you feel genuinely loved. And Kyle is not only kind, he keeps us in stitches every time we are around them. We need more people in the world like that, who bring happiness wherever they go.
And that is exactly the kind of wedding they had CLASSY. SWEET. FUN.
Take a look at their amazing day, it’s one for the books, that’s for sure!

Oh, Claire… you.are.stunning.I knew the moment I walked in, the girls had the BEST morning getting ready. Having the luxury of getting ready at Claire’s home, they were super laid back, laughing with one another, listening to music. What a PERFECT way to start your wedding day!One of my favorite photos I’ve taken… to date!Judy, you are not only beautiful, but your heart for your daughter is so amazing! I LOVED capturing how you adore her.And the boys behaved… for the most part 😉
THIS LITTLE RING BEARER!!!! If these photos don’t say, “wedded bliss,” I honestly don’t know what does! Love these moments Kev captured!I started laughing when I came across this in editing! I love when Kev leaves photos on his camera for me to find. THIS is a real gem! And this is exactly why these guys are some of the GREATEST that we’ve photographed! Fun, nice, and clearly hysterical!And this will go down in history as one of the best bridal party photos! Shon, we hope you CrossFit… you could really clear some box jumps with those ups!
YOU TWO!!!! All the heart eye emojis!Kev’s shot… left. Mine… right. Teamwork makes the dream work… ammiright!?
This was our first time shooting at The Indianapolis Public Library. A LIBRARY, you say!? Yes… the most beautiful of all the libraries. To be honest, I had a hard time deciding to take photos or go hide myself in all the books and read all night!! I figured I could come back and read, I only had one night to celebrate Claire + Kyle, I chose them of course.And we thought we couldn’t love Claire + Kyle any more… until we heard, “Who Let The Dawgs Out!? WHO WHO WHO!?” I’m smitten.
Heavenly Sweets did such a beautiful (and yummy!!) job on their wedding cake! And THEN!! Ashley and The Cosmos took the stage and it was time to partayyyy! And seriously… how cute are they!?We originally had a little sunset session set aside during the reception… but it clouded over. And Kyle was dying to take more photos, so we obliged and took them outside for a quick twilight session instead. And it was pure perfection.But it was REALLY a decoy to set up a BIG surprise for Kyle!Claire had Ritters brought in for Kyle and all his Texas guests!Claire and Kyle. You two are the REAL deal. We are so happy for you guys, we will continue to stalk you until we schedule a Bakersfield double date with you guys… because that’s how much we adore you! So while you clearly have an amazing group of friends and family who have your back… you can add two more to that list! Cheers to you both! Cheers to the beginning of your Happily Ever After! (Thank you Molly for your artistic expression with this image, and Kyle modeling his new bling!) haha! LOVE IT!
