Emily + Tyler's Indiana Wedding | Sand Creek Country Club

Wedding rings against a fireplace at Sand Creek Country Club

It was just days before NWI (Northwest Indiana) was going to reach temperatures that would make it colder, if only for 3 days, then Mount Everest. You read that right, NWI was colder than Mount Everest. At least for this day it was cold but not record breaking cold. I start every wedding the same, I arrive early and start working on the details. I use to hate shooting details. Now, they’re some of my most anticipated photos. I love them! After I connected with Emily I grabbed the wedding rings and began to shoot them as they were people themselves.

Once we wrapped up all of our details shots including the wedding dress we found our way back to Emily as she was getting finished up. She had a big day ahead of her and the timeline left no free time.

We then jumped back outside and grabbed some portraits of Tyler! He’s a good looking gent!

Then of course, we made our way back downstairs to finish up all of the bridesmaid and bride!


Time flew by so quickly this day. It seemed like everything was moving at one thousand miles per hour. Before we knew it the ceremony was about to start and then the real fun was about to begin.

The big bay windows gave us some amazing light!

After we finished inside with the formal portraits we snuck our newly weds outside in the cold to grab some amazing golden hour pics. And boy and I so glad we did. These images came out so magical!

Did I mention we were rushing all day?! Quickly we came inside and started to grab all the reception details. I personally loved the bride and groom decoration on the wedding cake.

Emily and Tyler made their entrance! They are the cutest couple.


Finally as the night began to wind down I was able to sneak them away one last time to get some great, fun and artistic portraits. I always try to have a photo that kind of says, “Goodnight”, or something to that effect. I couldn’t have been more happier with this set of photos!

Thank you Emily and Tyler for allowing me to be a part of your special day!
