Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Gaines - 6.22.18

This past June I had the pleasure of photographing a beautiful Friday afternoon wedding. Bride, Allie & I were worried all week with the impending forecast of storms headed for the Indianapolis area. We got super lucky with a beautiful, cool, overcast day. Couldn't have asked for better weather to celebrate this beautiful couple. 

I also had done their engagement photos late last fall, so being able to photograph this wedding was something I had been looking forward to for a long time. 

Here's some highlights from their day!
