I’m so lucky to witness such sacred events as weddings and bar and bat mitzvahs. I have to admit Elise’s age is one of my favorites to photograph is often overlooked by families. We thought we would have fun taking some photographs before Elise celebrates her bat mitzvah this fall. She’s fun, confident and so so pretty! Looking forward to November with this awesome family!nachlis-blognachlis-blog3nachlis-blog7nachlis-blog15

wagner1On some wedding days every moment and detail seem charmed to me. From the halls of Notre Dame to living in two cities far apart, Michael and Nicole’s relationship came full circle on July 18th when they said their vows. Finally husband and wife and now living life together (in the same house!) is truly something to celebrate. Because of the long distance planning Nicole and I never met until their engagement session, which we shot in freezing weather on campus at Notre Dame. I knew instantly when I met them I was going to LOVE their wedding day. What I didn’t know is that all of the wedding professionals that created that perfect day, who were complete strangers to me, would become like family in five minutes. Typically videographers and photographers compete for time, shots and occasionally get in each other’s way (still love you guys though). That wasn’t the case with Iron Kite Films. From my home state, North Carolina, Neil and Sean were amazing to work with and we easily stepped aside for each other. I have to admit, I thoroughly enjoyed watching them film with their drone. Definitely a signature element for them! Check out their teaser film here.

Then there was Cher, owner of Merry Me Events, and her amazing team. Cher’s experience and joyful personality was wonderful, but her expertise and amazing organization alongside her talented eye for design was absolutely a breath of fresh air. We just “got” each other and it was great. What Notre Dame wedding would be complete without an irish DJ? Pat McKillen kept the dance floor going all night long and his smile is contagious! He was on America’s Got Talent–fun fact.The Brick–a venue that is on my very short list of favorites was a treat to shoot in. They have thought of everything and created truly a chic atmosphere for weddings!!! I’m in love with the look of the space and can’t wait to return to shoot there again.

I have to say that my Annie has grown tremendously as an artist, a photographer and wedding assistant. She’s quick to jump in and fix small details before I even have a chance to call them out and she’s developed an amazing eye for moments. I’m proud of her work, especially on this wedding. Many images are hers and when editing we are getting to the point where sometimes we can’t tell who took what picture and that is a sign that she is getting GOOD, really good. Great job, Annie! It’s been amazing working with you and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for you as a photographer.

I am just lucky and lead a charmed life as a photographer. Getting to share these moments is indescribable at times. Michael and Nicole, I wish you all the best!! Thank you for letting me share in your day and thank you for your friendship.

We love Charlie! She’s got a great personality and is always impeccably dressed. I had the honor of documenting Katie and Brian’s wedding years ago. It’s always fun to see couples return to the studio with their babies! Is Charlie a future Miss America? She would have the best mentor in the world as her mom is Miss America 2009. Our first Miss Indiana to take that special title!   When I first met Charlotte I remarked how much she looks like Brian, but I pulled up some images of Katie from a shoot a few years ago and have to say–she might be a mini Katie!  She’s so endearing!  Congratulations on your sweet baby girl, Brian and Katie!  blog_irkstamcrownkatiecrown_favs-0024blog_irk9blog_irk8blog_irk15blog_irk16blog_irk17 Can’t resist posting one of Katie…

I remember capturing Doug when he was just a little guy! It’s hard to believe he is all grown up and ready for college. Hoping to watch him play ball someday! He’s really amazing at baseball:)blog_bergerblog_berger13blog_berger3blog_berger15

Before Tom proposed to Lauren he created an e-mail address with his last name for her…that was how certain he felt she was the “one” for him. I have to say, I find this very romantic!! Lauren accidentally stumbled upon the e-mail address one day and called her sister a little excited. Time passed before he actually asked for her parents blessing and then proposed–these two are most certainly perfect for each other.  Monica describes these two as “Tall, athletic, gorgeous and brilliant…” Pretty much right!

I have been looking forward to their day for a LONG time since booking their wedding. I knew the details would be amazing with Monica Richard helping them with the design and planning of this amazing wedding experience.  She certainly left no stone unturned–which I always expect from her and her fabulous team of professionals.  Normally I have my two cents all at the beginning, but let me guide you through this amazing french provincial experience in the heart of Franklin, IN on Mimi and Papa’s farm.

An evening shot of Lauren and Tom–officially married in the fields…where else would you be on an Indiana summer?  The band was playing and the formalities complete and forever stashed in our memory bank with all the pretty and circumstance!

Kohr_JDP01So I saw that they were putting makeup on Lauren and thought to myself, “does she even need it?”.  Her freckles, that flawless skin…what a blushing and HAPPY bride she was!  The morning was a flutter of activity, but Lauren had her healthy granola parfait, Courtney (her sister), Sloan (her niece) and Cindy (her mom) there to celebrate it all.  Since she was marrying “Tom” there was no question about having a pair of Toms herself and for her bridesmaids to change into for dancing!!  The jewelry from J Crew was a gift–I would have love to have been a bridesmaid–just saying.Kohr_JDP03Kohr_JDP02

The really special thing is Lauren’s purse, which her mother made by hand just for the wedding.  Oh and try not to drool, but their invitations were letter press from Pink Poppy Ink!

Thank you, Bob of Indy Visual for holding the hanger for me!!  Ring shot…  Lauren is STUNNING.  Such a naturally pretty and graceful bride!!  Monique Lhuillier is lucky she had her design on Lauren!


About to see dad for the first time…Kohr_JDP07

Monica’s brainchild.  I will admit, sometimes I don’t understand what is being communicated to me in a meeting with a florist, planner, two grandparents, a mother-of-the-bride, a tent company and a production company….but WOW.  So WOW.  Glad it all turned out well…this ceremony was PERFECTLY romantic and memorable.Kohr_JDP08


Pretty handsome Tom is…Kohr_JDP10

Swinging on the bench together.  I can’t make this stuff up, it just happens.  They had the most amazing property for their day and it was “rented’ and no other wedding had ever taken place there…just a memory to be shared only with their closest friends and family.  That is, of course, unless someday they have a beautiful daughter marry in the same place.  No pressure, but you would have the most adorable kids!!!








See the #TommyLoLo  ?  That was their wedding hashtag!!Kohr_JDP19






After the ceremony there was so much happy!!!  Papa stood by his tractor for a picture with Lauren.  After 8 months of maintaining the property to perfection I think he this moment was his to own!!  Mimi’s lemonade was heavenly…I might have had a cup or four.Kohr_JDP25













Bob, I’ll let you comment and share your story on the image below!!!  All I have to say is, I love an adventure, even if it does mean risking my life for a shot!Kohr_JDP38


The toasts were thoughtful, funny and not stolen from the internet.  John Hopkins was amazing (yes, you heard that right) and Courtney is the sister I wish I had!Kohr_JDP40

Monica Richards: Mon Amie Events Inc.
