EG O'Connell Photography: Blog http://www.egoconnellphoto.com/blog en-us (C) EG O'Connell Photography egoconnellphotography@gmail.com (EG O'Connell Photography) Thu, 14 Jun 2018 02:09:00 GMT Thu, 14 Jun 2018 02:09:00 GMT Mr. and Mrs. Ben and Cassie Newby {June 3, 2018} http://www.egoconnellphoto.com/blog/2018/6/mr-and-mrs-ben-and-cassie-newby-june-3-2018 Well where do I start in talking about my little cousin's wedding!? Cassie and I have grown up together. Our moms are sisters and we have always been close cousins. I loved watching her become a mommy to Ella and Rosalie! And I loved being able to capture these beautiful wedding memories as well! 

Ben and Cassie picked a beautiful venue...The Sycamore at Mallow Run Winery! I met up with Cassie as she was getting ready for the day. Her girlies were close by watching. She had help getting into her dress from her sisters and her mom. Cassie decide to do a first look with Ben in the vineyard. It was absolutely perfect! These were some of my favorite pictures of the day. After they took a few pictures together they headed back up to wait for the ceremony to start. 

To start the ceremony out...they had each of their moms walk down their daughters. It was such a sweet moment! Ben's face when he watched his girlies walk down was the sweetest! Cassie was walked down the aisle by her Dad. She looked so beautiful...and yes I was behind the camera crying like a baby haha. The ceremony was full of love and laughs. I loved how Cassie threw her flowers up in the air when he announced they were husband and wife! 

We took family pictures and bridal pictures directly after the wedding. Ben and Cassie picked out such beautiful colors for their flowers and bridal party. They were perfect colors for a June wedding! After pictures everyone headed inside for dinner. Shortly after dinner the dancing started. I loved how all the kiddos were dancing on the dance floor (including my daughter Gwendolyn!). They all were having such a blast!

I pulled Ben and Cassie back outside when the sun was just setting. These were my favorite pictures from the whole day. The light was SO beyond beautiful and the two of them together...magic!! What a great day it was for these two! I went a little crazy on this blog and even had to decide not to add any more! I could have added so many more that I loved. Enjoy all the pictures of their beautiful beautiful day!

I'm so happy for the two of you and your sweet girlies! I know you both will share many many happy years together!

Love you!

Mr. and Mrs. Marques and Jackie Rattler {May 26, 2018} http://www.egoconnellphoto.com/blog/2018/6/mr-and-mrs-marques-and-jackie-rattler-may-26-2018 There is so much I feel I could say about this wedding! What a beautiful and fun day it was! I met up with the bride and groom in their own areas of the church to keep from seeing each other. Their ceremony was at Holy Spirit at Geist Parish. It is a beautiful church! Marques and his groomsmen were getting their final touches. Jackie and her bridesmaids were getting ready as well. Jackie had help with her dress from all her bridesmaids and her mother and sister. Jackie made sure to include parts of her mother's wedding dress on her bouquet and a small piece was added to the front of her dress. She also wore her mother's veil. I loved that she added all these to share in her own wedding day. I also loved that she had her bridesmaids each put on one piece of her jewelry for the day. It was such a neat idea and something she will remember forever. 

The ceremony started and Jackie walked down the aisle with her Dad. She looked so beautiful! Marques would look over at his bride throughout the ceremony. He looked at her that way the whole day! It was so sweet! After the ceremony the whole bridal party went out to the front of the church for pictures. They were all laughing and having a blast. They definitely have a great group of friends! The whole bridal party then headed to a local bar in Broad Ripple to have a few drinks before heading to the reception. We had so much fun taking pictures there! They were some of my favorites from their day!  

Their reception was at The Willows in Westfield. It is not far from the Broad Ripple area. The venue just opened a huge deck right outside of their reception room. It looked out to a pond and it was so gorgeous! Their guests enjoyed hanging out there after dinner. The toasts had many people tearing up (including myself haha). You can definitely tell these two are well loved and they truly love each other so much. After their first dances everyone headed to the dance floor! Everyone had a blast dancing together. It was such a great day! I'm so happy I got to be apart of their day! Enjoy the many favorites from the wedding and congrats again to Marques and Jackie!

I wish you both many many happy and fun years together!

Marques and Jackie Engagement Session {September 2017} http://www.egoconnellphoto.com/blog/2018/5/marques-and-jackie-engagement-session-september-2017 Marques and Jackie's engagement session was absolutely beautiful! It was a perfect night (even if it was hot for the end of September!). The sunset was gorgeous over the water at Saxony Beach in Fishers. These two are such a blast! I can't wait for their wedding tomorrow. Their ceremony will be Holy Spirit at Geist Parish and their reception is at The Willows in Westfield. I know it will be amazing! Enjoy some favorites from their engagement session!

Mr. and Mrs. Alex and Lauren Ollila {May 5, 2018} http://www.egoconnellphoto.com/blog/2018/5/mr-and-mrs-alex-and-lauren-ollila-may-5-2018 Alex and Lauren had such a beautiful wedding day! It was my first time shooting a wedding at The Sycamore at Mallow Run outside of Bargersville. It did not disappoint! The grounds and the venue are just breathtaking! When I got there Lauren was just getting ready to get into her wedding dress. When she pulled it out of the bag, I was so excited! It was such a gorgeous dress and it was totally a dress I pictured her wearing. 

Alex and Lauren decided to see each other before their ceremony. It was a perfect first look! I love seeing how the couple reacts to seeing each other for the first time of the day! It is such a special moment! Alex had us cracking up about how she would dance in her dress haha. The pictures of the two of them were some of my very favorites! Lauren's flowers were stunning! They just fit the venue and day perfectly! After we took some pictures of the two of them and the bridal party...we waited for the ceremony to start. Their ceremony was outside. The weather couldn't have been better for it! At the end of their ceremony all their guests blew bubbles as the bride and groom walked down the aisle. Talk about some great pictures!! I loved it and so did everyone at the ceremony! 

We took family pictures while their guests enjoyed cocktail hour. It was a perfect evening to have everyone outside. When the couple entered their reception everyone cheered as they danced on to the dance floor. After dinner, the newly weds shared their first dance followed by the other special dances. Then the party really got started! There were so many people enjoying their time on the dance floor! It was such a fun and beautiful day! I am so glad I got to be apart of it! Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Ollila! Enjoy looking through many amazing pictures from their wedding day! 

I wish you both many many happy years together!

Mr. and Mrs. Adam and Amanda Kiesel {April 28, 2018} http://www.egoconnellphoto.com/blog/2018/5/mr-and-mrs-adam-and-amanda-kiesel-april-28-2018 Adam and Amanda had a beautiful April spring day for their wedding! The trees were all starting to get leaves and many were in full bloom. Their ceremony took place at St. Louis de Montfort in Fishers, Indiana. It is a beautiful catholic church. I met up with Amanda with her bridesmaids as they were getting ready for the day. The bridesmaid's dresses were a perfect peach color for spring. Amanda and her sister had a moment just the two of them as she helped Amanda into her wedding dress. 

Adam and his groomsmen were having a blast laughing and joking as they were getting ready. Amanda and Adam decided not to see each other before the ceremony. We got pictures of the groomsmen, bridesmaids, and family before the ceremony started. During the ceremony they had both sets of parents come up to the alter while they held candles. It was one of my favorite parts of the day. After the ceremony we captured many family pictures. 

After pictures the bridal party got to ride in a limo together. I met them at a park down the road. The wind got a little chilly for awhile there but everyone remained in good spirits haha. Adam and Amanda took some gorgeous pictures down by the pond. They were some of my favorites from the day! After pictures the bridal party enjoyed driving around in the limo before heading to the reception. When Adam and Amanda arrived at the reception we took a few more pictures around the reception hall. There was a magnolia tree close by that they took pictures in front of. It was perfect for their April wedding!

Once they all were introduced at the reception, Adam and Amanda shared their first dance before dinner. Adam made a slide show that featured many pictures of the two of them and many of them growing up. After dinner was the father/daughter dance and the mother/son dance. Then the night took off with people dancing right away. Everyone was having a blast! Their dance floor was packed! It was such a great day! I'm so happy to share many favorites from their day below. Enjoy!!

I wish you both wonderful years together! I hope you are enjoying that honeymoon in Africa!

Alex and Lauren Engagement Session http://www.egoconnellphoto.com/blog/2018/5/alex-and-lauren-engagement-session Alex and Lauren picked an October date for their engagement session. It was raining but we decided we would brave the rain for pictures anyway. We had an umbrella and Lauren's family members help hold it up to keep them dry during pictures. Everything worked out and we got some cute ones! They even brought their doggie along for a few! I'm so excited to capture their wedding this Saturday, May 5th at The Sycamore at Mallow Run Winery! It is a beautiful venue. I can't wait! Enjoy a few favorites from their engagement session.

Mr. and Mrs. Michael and Amanda Stout {December 1, 2017} http://www.egoconnellphoto.com/blog/2017/12/mrandmrsstout Michael and Amanda had a beautiful December wedding! They picked a perfect location for their wedding. Their ceremony and reception took place at the Mavris Arts and Event Center in downtown Indianapolis. This was my second time shooting a wedding there and I just love it! It is such a romantic venue with a beautiful view of the city. I met up with Mandi and her bridesmaids and they all were wearing the cutest robes. Three out of the four of her bridesmaids (including her sister) are expecting! They were having a great time getting their makeup and hair done.

The groomsmen were having a blast as well! Each time I went down to see if they were ready for pictures, they were laughing and enjoying some games in their room. 

They reception and ceremony area was decorated beautifully! I loved the idea of giving each guest a Christmas tree ornament to take home after the reception! Amanda hand painted each one! They also had some small pine trees up by their ceremony arbor. The arbor was decorated with beautiful flowers! Their center pieces at the reception had the same flowers and lighted trees in the middle.

Michael and Amanda had such a heartfelt ceremony. They chose to write their own vows and both of them cried and laughed throughout. They also picked to put together a unity cross instead of doing unity candles. After they put the pieces together they spent time laughing and talking. Throughout the whole ceremony the sun was setting giving the outside a bluish glow. It was absolutely gorgeous! 

After the ceremony we took pictures of the newly weds and their families. Michael and Mandi decided not to see each other before but we still made sure to get some pictures outside in the dark. I am SO glad we did! The city lights were perfect for pictures! 

Their reception was a blast! Their guests enjoyed delicious donuts on a fantastic donut display! There were many laughs and tears during the reception too. Everyone was enjoying the dance floor! What a perfect December wedding it was! December is becoming one of my favorites times of the year for weddings! Enjoy the many many pictures from their wedding day! 

I wish you both many many happy years together where ever life decides to take you!

I got so excited when Shanna told me her sister needed a photographer! I knew it would be an amazing day!

Rick and Alanna had a beautiful fall wedding on October 14th! They met in Missouri and live there now. Alanna wanted to have a hometown wedding in her hometown of Gas City, Indiana. They had the ceremony at a beautiful old Catholic church called Holy Family Catholic Church. They had their reception at the reception hall right next to the church. I loved how Alanna's family worked hard to decorate everything in beautiful fall flowers!

They enjoyed the day with close family and friends. Alanna had her sister (Shanna) and her two friends from childhood as her bridesmaids. Rick had his family members as his groomsmen. I loved that they had their family be such a big part in their day! 

These two had a superhero cake! It was so unique. They talked about by being together they can do anything (like a superhero)! Their guests enjoyed delicious food and cake as they congratulated the new bride and groom! It was such a wonderful wedding day for these two! Here are many pictures from their day! Enjoy!!

Congrats to you two! I'm so happy I got to be apart of your beautiful day!! Enjoy married life and may you share many many happy years together!!

Mr. and Mrs. Josh and Alisia Fleming {October 7, 2017} http://www.egoconnellphoto.com/blog/2017/10/mr-and-mrs-josh-and-alisia-fleming-october-7-2017  Josh and Alisia had their wedding and reception in Fishers, Indiana at River Glen Country Club. I could go on and on about how beautiful River Glen was for a wedding! It had a long deck that looked out to the grounds which was perfect! We arrived to Alisia and her bridesmaids getting ready. They had beautiful hangers for all the dresses and Alisia's had Mrs. Fleming on it. The light coming in through the window was perfect for pictures. After everyone was ready, Josh and Alisia headed out to the golf course to see each other for the first time. Josh stood in front of the covered bridge on the property while he waited to see his bride. He was in shock when he saw her! I loved this moment! 

It was a windy day! The wind kept taking her veil into the wind! We loved it! The wind also blew the ribbons on the flowers too. Who knew windy days could be perfect for pictures!

After that we took more pictures of the two of them (some of my favorites were by the weeping willow). We met up with their whole bridal party for pictures and lot of laughs. The colors they picked for this fall wedding were absolutely gorgeous! I loved how they colors looked on the golf course. There were a few trees in the background that showed some fall color. 

Their ceremony took place on the deck of the country club. There were lights on the top of the deck which made for a romantic setting. Josh teared up when he saw his bride walking down the aisle! It was a beautiful moment from their day! I loved that they had both of their fathers speak during the ceremony. After their ceremony they had some time to just enjoy each other before entering the reception. I always love when my couples see each other before the ceremony for this reason. The whole day was about them!

Their reception was a blast! After dinner and the cake cutting, they brought out a bunch of candy for a candy bar! It was a hit for everyone! They reception was a blast! Their family and guests enjoyed drinks and dancing! It was so fun!

What a wonderful day it was and so beautiful! Enjoy many many favorites from their wedding below!

 

Josh and Alisia I am so thankful I got to share this day with you! It was so beautiful! Congrats to the both of you again and I wish you both many many happy years ahead!

I met up with Jonelle and her bridesmaids 31 floors up in the JW Marriott. If you haven't been in the JW Marriott Hotel...you need to! It has some of the most breathtaking views of Indianapolis! Jo and her gals had on fun robes! It made for some cute getting ready pictures! They were having a wonderful time!

I headed over to their venue to capture a few pictures of the guys getting ready. Their venue was so unique and amazing! Gallery Forty-Two is close to the circle and is an art gallery. This venue fit TJ and Jonelle's personalities and their day perfectly! TJ and his father were finishing up putting on their jackets. Jo and TJ's dog got to be in some of their getting ready pictures and a couple of others! I loved it! They decided to see each other before the ceremony. TJ stood up on the balcony to see his bride for the first time. It was such a wonderful moment! We took pictures of the two of them and their bridal party before heading on the trolley to the ceremony.

The ceremony took place at North Central Church of Christ. Their ceremony was so sweet. I saw many family members and friends shedding a few tears throughout. They left the church to their guests blowing bubbles (my favorite!). After pictures, we were back on the trolley heading to the reception! Their bridal party was having a blast! It was so much fun! 

We sent everyone inside so we could capture a few more of the bride and groom in front of the venue. These were some of my favorites of the whole day! When they entered the venue, they danced! Their guests (and me haha) LOVED it! What a wonderful day it was! Enjoy some favorites below!! And congrats again to Mr. and Mrs. Zancanaro! 

Congrats to you two! I wish you many many happy years together!

The farm was absolutely beautiful! They had the ceremony on the beach down by the pond. When the music came on for Blair to walk down the aisle, Samuel couldn't hold back tears. When Blair saw him, she also couldn't hold back her tears. It was so sweet. You could just tell how much these two love each other!

 After their ceremony their guests headed up to the red barn for cocktail hour. If you know anything about Traders Point Creamery, you know their food is amazing! They went all out on their cheese and fruit plate for cocktail hour! I added quite a few pictures just of the food. It was definitely worth sharing! 

After cocktail hour, everyone went up to dinner in the Roost. It was set up so beautifully! I loved how the deck looked out to the whole farm. Everyone enjoyed a delicious sit down dinner. You could tell everyone was having a wonderful time! The guests all enjoyed a little dancing in the red barn until it was time to send off the bride and groom. It was such a great evening! Congrats to these two again and enjoy some favorites from the evening!

Congrats again to you two! I wish you many many happy years together!

Mr. and Mrs. Isaiah and Emily Douglass {August 12, 2017} http://www.egoconnellphoto.com/blog/2017/8/mr-and-mrs-isaiah-and-emily-douglass-august-12-2017 When you think of August you typically think of the weather being hot. Isaiah and Emily's wedding was in the 70s and absolutely beautiful! They could not have had a better day for their outside wedding at the Indiana State Museum downtown Indianapolis. I met up with Emily and her gals at Hair Around the Square. It was such a cute little place! They were enjoying their time with mimosas and talking about the day ahead. Emily picked beautiful jewelry to wear for the day that matched her fabulous gold shoes.

I headed to the museum to capture the groom and groomsmen getting ready. We took some pictures outside around the canal. I couldn't help but take so many pictures of their reception area. The room with the Indiana statue is just perfect! Emily did a wonderful job deciding on their center pieces. She wanted to use her aunt's books on the tables in her memory. It was a wonderful way to have her there and it was so beautiful. Emily got ready upstairs overlooking the venue. Her dress was just stunning!! She looked so beautiful in it! 

They decided to have their ceremony at the top of the stairs overlooking the city and the canal. It was perfect! After the ceremony we took pictures outside around the ceremony area. The way Isaiah looked at his new bride was just so sweet. My favorite pictures of the day had to be of the two of them on the stairs overlooking the city! 

They entered their reception to claps and cheers. They headed right over to cut into their gorgeous cake! When the DJ called for all married couples to come to the dance floor for the anniversary dance, there were few people still sitting. It had to be the biggest anniversary dance I have ever seen! 

It was such a wonderful day and I am so happy I got to capture these pictures for them! Enjoy looking through some favorites from their wedding day!

 

Congrats again to you both and many many happy years together!

Isaiah and Emily Engagement {November 12, 2016} http://www.egoconnellphoto.com/blog/2017/8/isaiah-and-emily-engagement-november-12-2016 I will always remember meeting with Isaiah and Emily for the first time. We sat down a local coffee shop and started talking about their wedding day. Emily was referred to me by an old high school friend of mine. Emily said they came to the meeting planning on booking me but she wanted to see if our personalities went well together. They of course did! Next thing you know we were meeting at their future ceremony and reception site to take engagement pictures! The fall leaves were still beautiful even though it was the middle of November! Emily had an adorable idea for a photo so we headed over to the Indianapolis Public Library to capture her standing on some books to reach Isaiah's height. It was so cute!

Isaiah and Emily are getting married at the Indiana State Museum this Saturday, August 12th! I have always wanted to capture a wedding there and I have a wonderful couple to capture! I canNOT wait! Enjoy some favorites from their engagement session and watch for their blog post from their wedding day!

Mr. and Mrs. Trevor and Delaney Hagan {June 24, 2017} http://www.egoconnellphoto.com/blog/2017/7/mr-and-mrs-trevor-and-delaney-hagan-june-24-2017 Okay, this blog post is probably one of my longest ones to date. You are about to see why with all these gorgeous pictures! They also have waited a little longer on this post so I wanted to pack it full of the best pictures! It was a beautiful June day for their wedding! Typically in Indiana, June can be very hot. On their day of the wedding it never went over 75 degrees! It was perfect for an outdoor wedding. 

Delaney is friends with my good friend and second shooter, Elizabeth Simmons (you will see her in the bridal party). They met in the radiology program and both graduated from IU Kokomo back in May. Elizabeth told Delaney all about my photography. I met with Delaney and her mother shortly after. I felt like I already knew Delaney as soon as I met her. I knew it was going to be so much fun capturing her wedding day!

Trevor made the perfect arbor for the ceremony. It was gorgeous! When Delaney walked across the bridge with her father her veil flew to the side in the wind. It was a beautiful moment as she walked toward her groom. The kiss at the end was perfect.

After they cut the cake, these two made sure the cake went all over each other's faces! It was so funny! I loved capturing all the first dances after the cake cutting. These two can throw a party! Their guests danced and danced and danced! It was a blast for everyone! At the end of the night they left the reception to their guests holding sparklers. It was so fun!

Enjoy all these pictures...they say more than my words ever could! Congrats again Mr. and Mrs. Hagan!

I wish you both many many more years of happiness together and with your sweet pup!

Trevor and Delaney Engagement {November 5, 2016} http://www.egoconnellphoto.com/blog/2017/6/trevor-and-delaney-engagement-november-5-2016 Trevor and Delaney are getting married tomorrow (June 24th) at O-Ace-Is right outside of Kokomo. It is a beautiful venue and I can't wait to share about their wedding day! 

These two had such a beautiful fall engagement session back in early November. The weather was perfect outside! They brought their adorable puppy (Howie) along for the session. He was a blast and posed nicely for pictures too haha! It made me excited for fall weather looking back through these (not hurrying summer along though)! I had trouble picking just a few from their session because I loved them all! Enjoy!

Watch for a blog post from their wedding day!

Mr. and Mrs. Ryan and Meghan Knuckles {June 3, 2017} http://www.egoconnellphoto.com/blog/2017/6/mr-and-mrs-ryan-and-meghan-knuckles-june-3-2017 Ryan and Meghan had such a beautiful June wedding! The sun was shining the whole day and the sky was bright blue with big white clouds! They picked Purgatory Golf Club in Noblesville because Ryan has a history with the grounds. The golf club is out in the country. It is one of the most beautiful golf courses in Indiana I have decided! The club house went with their rustic theme! 

When I got inside Meghan had on the cutest white robe that said Mrs. Knuckles on the back of it (you will see a few pictures of it in the blog). She was enjoying getting her hair and makeup done with her bridesmaids. The guys were getting ready in the locker room across from the ladies. After they got ready we headed out to the golf course to take some fun pictures! 

Meghan had a surprise from Ryan. He wrote her a note on the bottom of her shoe. It was so sweet! Once she got her shoes on, she started getting into her wedding dress. Her mom and sister were there helping but at one point all the bridesmaids were helping too! Everyone was laughing and having a good time helping her! Meghan picked such a gorgeous wedding dress! It had jewels and lace all over it and she looked stunning in it! Many tears were shed when Meghan saw her Dad for the first time in her dress. 

Their ceremony took place across the lake on the golf course. It would have been a long walk so golf carts were used to transport their guests out to the ceremony site. A golf cart drove Meghan out there too but they covered the cart with a sheet so Ryan couldn't see her until she walked down the aisle. Ryan and Meghan are such a fun loving couple! There were many laughs throughout the day and during the ceremony. After they were announced as husband and wife we took pictures on the golf course. The ones on the golf cart are some of my favorites of the two of them! The reception was a blast! Their guests danced a ton! Enjoy many many pictures from their day. Once again I had to cut myself off from all the pictures I wanted to share!

I hope the two of you are enjoying that honeymoon! I am so glad I got to be apart of your day! You two are such a sweet couple and I wish you many many happy years together!
