Spring Indianapolis Wedding

This day, the wedding day, when all the planning and dreaming comes together into one beautiful orchestrated crescendo.

Kate and Dan are two incredible people. Both pharmacists, their attention to detail while being so dag on friendly, I think, must be in their genetic makeup. They met at a mutual friend’s wedding, and they honored their story, as Kate wore her friend’s veil as her “something borrowed.” You would think after photographing weddings for ten years, these kinds of details would be lost in me, but quite the contrary. These details are the very things that keep me inspired. The couples I meet, and their amazing stories.

I LOVED arriving at Iron Works Hotel where Kate and her bridesmaids were getting ready. The music was bumpin to 90’s hits (yessssss!!), girls were dancing and Vinni (Kate+Dan’s dog) even made a quick appearance to wish Kate well on her big day! Excitement filled the room, and I knew in that moment, that even though there was a 100% chance of rain, the day was going to be absolute perfection. And it was.

They didn’t stop smiling and laughing, cheers-ing and dancing, singing and joking… the ENTIRE.DAY. I’m not entirely sure I’ve ever seen a bride and groom throughly enjoy themselves as much as these two did. And that my friends, tells you exactly how their day went. FULL of love. FULL of smiles. FULL of kisses. Wedding Day bliss!

The blooming trees made the already beautiful St. Paul’s Episcopal Church so stunning!

This is why I love having a family! It’s not perfect, but the love a parent has for their child is just unparalleled.

Dan’s face says it all. A First Look is the perfect way to start the day!

May you laugh your way through life, this way forever!

Okayyyyy… let me step on my momma soap box for one hot minute. Ya’ll, these family photos, are everryyyyyything. Yes, beautiful images of the bride and groom are fun to take, AND yes, they are important (I mean… duh), but shame on us photographers if we ever rush or don’t push into the weight of importance that family photos carry. Family IS the legacy. Maybe it’s because I’m a momma myself, but I will forever and always honor family portrait time.

Plus you get adooooorable photos with the kids too! GAH!

Lilly Lane made this beautiful bouquet!! She did all the floral work actually, and it all turned out so dreamy and beautiful!! LOVED working with Becky, she’s a dream!

This was Kev and I’s first time shooting at Sahm’s Atrium. And this venue is awesome! The industrial feel from the concrete pillars and large metal casing of the windows mixed with the elegance of the lighting and architecture, makes this a memorable and really terrific space for a reception!!

LORD.HAVE.MERCY. That cake tasted just as good as it looks!!! Thank you Simply Perfection Cakes, your name describes you perfectly!

Kate and Dan have GREAT taste in beer (and details!)… that’s reason 293402348209348 why I love them so dang much!

I don’t know what it is about the cake cutting, but it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite parts of the reception. There is just so much fun and happiness filled into those 5 minutes!

Kate.And.Dan. You two have stolen my heart. I know, I know….. I get cheesy here. I can’t help myself though. It’s crazy how you spend a year or more getting to know a couple and then getting to spend the ENTIRE DAY together on THEIR wedding day, it will straight bond ya! Gosh, we wish you two nothing but the very best this life has to offer. Beer. Bacon. Babies. bahaha!

I just know whatever life throws your way, remember your wedding day. Remember the rain and remember when you’re together, there is NOTHING you two can’t weather together. Cheers to you both! xoxo!

Sweetest Snowy Engagement

I get asked all the time if pups can accompany you to your engagement session, and my answer is ALWAYS the same… I want, what is going to make YOU happy! Not to mention, doggies are always so dang cuuuute! Give me all the sweet pups!

Speaking of sweet, let me introduce you to one of the sweetest couples, Karli and Ty. I LOVED spending my afternoon with the two of them. Karli is sweet as pie, and to be honest… so is Ty.

Ty, has anyone ever called you, “sweet as pie!?”

I can not WAIT to shoot their wedding in August. I know they looooove the snow, but I will be so happy to be in a summer dress with sun kissed skin. And shooting at Vintage Oaks… eeeep! It’s going to be soooo beautiful! I can’t WAIT!

Karli + Ty Engagement Session

“My sunshine doesn’t come from the skies, it comes from the love that is found in my dog’s eyes.” These pups LOVE them some Karli + Ty, that’s for sure!

I love that you guys met in winter, got engaged one an ice rink and then got your engagement photos with the snow! What a beautiful story your kids will love to hear over and over!

Oh the way he loves her!!

Happiness in one photo.

I love the way he makes you laugh, Karli! All ladies should have a man who knows them so well, they feel free to light up with happiness!

You can see it in their eyes… sweet.as.pie! Love them!

Karli + Ty, you guys are so great individually, but together you’re a picture of what love should be. Fun. Sweet. Kind. You guys are FRIENDS first, laughing together, arms around one another. It’s what I love to photograph, and I’m SO honored you asked me to!

xoxo!

Kev and I are breaking up.

Oh good heavens, not like THAT! Shew! We are in this thing for the loooooong HAUL! But read on, it will allllll make sense.

Kev got a new job! He’s no longer a police officer, as some of you have sorta, kiiiiiinda, little bit heard some of the details, but most likely not all of them. No he is not in jail, bahaaha (one of my favorite messages I received by the way) he has just decided to take a different route in life.

I’m telling you what though, his “brothers in blue” have been AMAZING! You know that whole, “we’re family, we have each other’s back” Oh, I couldn’t say enough on that statement. I can’t TELL you the number of brothers who have reached out to support our family. I’m telling you, you really wouldn’t believe it. So while Kev is just so saddened to leave one of the finest establishments he’s ever given his life for, his time, his energy, his first days home with Rosalie, even his leg for a dog bite… we are ready to move forward. Thank you LPD, you’ve propelled our lives forward more than you can EVER know. No really, thank you.

But, moving forward… quickly, here are 5 things you need to know about Kev and I “breaking up”.

  1. We aren’t really breaking up in real life. He’s got too smokin’ hot of a bod for me to ever let that hunk go.
  2. I (Toni) am NOT afraid of failing. Well I am (who isn’t!?), but then after enough time passes I’m just like, “eff it. Do you boo.” I had someone tell me once that by me changing my business so much (hey, life happens… you get postpartum depression so bad you wanna leave your family. I just wanted to take care of myself, my family and not lose my ever loving mind). I digress. They told me I’d lose the trust of my clients. I’ve had others poke fun at me. And to be honest, that has held me down SO FREAKING MUCH. Terrified to make a wrong move. But listen, I’m like the prettiest cockroach you ever did see. I ain’t leavin’, and I’m not afraid to change my business to BETTER serve my clients. So sue me (no, don’t do that.)
  3. If you HAVE followed me through this business journey of mine, I CANNOT thank you enough. I think of you so often. I see your faces in my minds eye, I’ve felt your love and support. And I’m tellin’ ya, for me who has gone through such a hard time emotionally with having babies, (thank GOD that time is over! lol) it really does mean the world to me to have you cheering in my corner! Seriously, you’re THE BEST!
  4. Kev will still shoot every.single.wedding with me, cause he’s da bomb like that! He just will focus on his new job more than the back end of our biz. I’m a total momboss, I got this!
  5. I will eventually be getting a new website, but dang there are A LOT more Toni Price’s out there now than when I first started my business journey. Dang it. For now, it will stay what it is, and I’d love to invite you along on Instagram at @tonipriice (formerly @kevinandtoniprice) and Kev at @kevinpriice.

So it’s not that this is any big deal. I mean, New York just allowed women to abort 9 month olds, THAT is a big deal.

I just wanted to update you, so you’re not confused when all these changes happen, and I wanted to THANK YOU for journeying through life with me! I am SO excited to, in a sense for me, pick up where I left off 5 years ago. Yet, it’s not really picking up is it, life has given me SO MUCH to deepen me, soften me, and help me to become a better version of myself. And I fully intend to step into that instead of running away.

Whatever it is you’re facing, the fears, the “what will people thinks,” I’d encourage you to lean into the “unknown” with me. What an adventure we will have!

xoxo!

Toni

Intimate Military Wedding

An Indiana girl and a California boy, and they met on a competitive softball league across the seas. Yet the kicker!? They weren’t even on the same team! He was playing for the men’s league, while she was killin’ it over on the women’s. But they did occasionally practice together and traveled to tournaments across Europe, so there’s that.

Both in the Air Force, Sybyl was a 3 yr. veteran on her team, while John came on as a rookie. Everyone spoke so highly of John, Sybyl had to know more of who this dude was. She took her chances during a Home Run Derby to sneak in beside him, figuring if he wasn’t interested, that’d be that. Well, he stayed, they fell in love and the rest is history folks. How romantic that they grew up across the country, yet met in Germany. When you’re soulmates, God just has a way of bringing you together.

Every love story is unique and Kevin and I are so honored when couples trust us with theirs. We believe in love that expands the oceans, breaks out of the bounds of typical, and changes lives. And that is Sybyl and John’s kind of love.

These two tied the knot, with their families in attendance, while on leave for Christmas. They are both still stationed apart, but will soon start their forever together, hand in hand.

John + Sybyl
December 27, 2019

Sybyl and John rented the Gertrude Shambaugh Room at the Historic Duncan Hall in downtown Lafayette. It was so beautiful!!

Sybyl’s brother, sis-in-law and niece came home from North Carolina for the wedding. Seriously, the sweetest when your family comes to love on you and support you!

The SWEETEST!

The whole crew!

Sybyl killlllliin’ it!

Oh my gosh you two… you’re goals!

Kiiinda like Where’s Waldo, but my own personal spin on things 😉

Sybyl + John, we are so so so so soooooo happy for you two! Thanks for having us along on your special day, it was one of the sweetest weddings we’ve been to, to date! (That’s really saying something!) All our love!

Pretty + Timeless Bel Air Wedding

We believe in genuine connection. We believe in love at first sight. We believe that the love of a bride and groom is one of the most sacred and beautiful relationships you’ll come in contact with. And that is only reason 224982349 why we love Wedding Photography.

Laine + Braydon are two of the sweetest most genuine folks you’ll meet. They are kind to one another, they choose their words lovingly, and the way they look at the other will make the hardest heart swoon.

It was an honor to photograph such love. And we truly hope that one day, when their kids are looking through their wedding album, something will click in their hearts. Their kids will be so enamoured with the kind of love between their parents, it will give them hope and courage to find that same kind of genuine and deep love for themselves.

Laine + Braydon
December 22, 2018

Laine and Shannon’s friendship is evident, and it was such a joy to photograph them while Shannon helped Laine into her dress. One of my favorite parts of the day!

The look on everyone’s face that day when they saw Laine!

I personally love this image on the left, it’s Braydon’s mom helping the ring bearer with his boutonniere.

I bet Kim can remember helping Braydon prepare to be a ringbearer years ago, or on prom night straightening his flowers before he headed out the door. You pretty much blink and they are all grown up.

This is why wedding photography means so much to us, because we know the value of fleeting moments being captured and documented.

GAH! Those First Look Feels!!

As always, Tammy McCain, knocked it outta the park with the florals!
Always a pleasure getting to photograph her work!!

Laine is aaaammaaazing with her nieces and nephews! In fact, Laine, what’s your babysitting rate!?

Oh my good heavens lawdy! That light and these beautiful people!

It’s not a fair match when you’re so smitten with your opponent!

Ya’ll! We’ve said this over and over again, you NEED to book Loaded Transportation for all your Wedding Day Party Bus needs! They are so fun, so helpful AND they have a rockin’ sound system!

Loved seeing Brittney + Cale coming down those stairs.
Had a flashback to when we photographed THEIR wedding day!

Gary, you didn’t leave a dry eye in the place with that lovely speech.

There isn’t a more accurate depiction of the timeline of life with our brides and grooms… bahaha! First you’re dancing on your wedding night, then a few years later you find your kids half asleep on the dance floor. LOVE IT!

These two… we could have hung out with them all night!!

Buuuut… looks like Gary here had that covered.

Laine and Braydon, we are so so so so soooooo happy you two! It was an honor to photograph your Wedding Day. You two are such a bright spot in the lives of SO MANY, and now we have joined that list for sure! We wish you both years upon years of happiness and joy! All our love!
