Kyle & Taylor | Saint Mary-of-the-Woods | Terre Haute, IN

Kyle & Taylor. Where do I even start? I can only think to take you back to the moment Kyle contacted me about shooting his surprise marriage proposal to Taylor. That’s the day Kyle became vulnerable and invited me in to his and Taylor’s story. I have known Kyle and Taylor for years, but this just brought our relationship to a whole new level and I was “in” on making his surprise a reality.

That is when I sent Taylor a message and asked if her and Kyle would be interested in modeling for my new website that was in the works. I wanted to feature their love. She agreed and we chatted all about what to wear and so on. Kyle was planning every last bit, all the way down to the littlest of details. He brought over all of his props and we chatted about how he wanted everything set up.

The day we were to meet for pictures was FREEZING! Literally. But that didn’t stop us. My oldest son and I ventured out to the remote location I had chosen and set up all of the details before Kyle and Taylor arrived…and the rest is history! At the end of the “session” Kyle popped the question and of course Taylor said “YES!”

Fast forward to their engagement session. I traveled down to Kyle and Taylor’s hometown, Evansville, IN, meeting them on campus at their Alma Mater, University of Evansville. We explored campus and captured their love in so many amazing places that held a special place in their hearts. We also made our way down to the darling river-town of Newburgh.

And that leads up to their wedding day! This wedding was one of the most emotive weddings I have had the pleasure of capturing. Kyle and Taylor’s love for each other was evident and everything was just beautiful. An absolute timeless occasion. Thank you, Kyle and Taylor, for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day, your friendship and for treating myself and my family like your family! I hope these images take you back to your best day ever!
