Bloomington, IN:  We are not sure where to begin when writing about this couple.  Anne and Derek truly are on the top of our list as one of our favorite Bride and Grooms ever.  They are truly madly in love with each other, kind, funny, always smiling, full of laughter and we could go on and on!  Anne and Derek are the kind of people you are drawn to because they are so genuine.  They are also naturals in front of the camera because they are so comfortable with one another.  We hardly ever needed to pose them because they were constantly giggling and snuggling.  We knew within 5 mins of our first meeting that we were a perfect match as their wedding photographers.  We share many of the same interests and a love for the outdoors.   They also share the same obsession for the country/rustic scene as us!  This couple was surround by so much love for their day.  It was evident that their sweet and likable personalities are loved my many.  The ceremony was held at First United Methodist Church in downtown Bloomington and the reception at Indiana University’s Henke Hall of Champions.  Anne and Derek both work for IU athletics, so this venue had special meaning to them.  We had the chance to work with our good friends John + Jen Moon of Northernlight Filmworks and the talented girls at Peppertree Floral + Events on the wedding day.  We were reminded how well a wedding day can unfold, with a team of fantastic vendors!  Anne and Derek, we say this a lot on our blog, however you know how much we love you both!  Thank you for being such amazing people!


Anne is also on the top of our list as wearing our favorite dress EVER!!!


Gifts from her future hubby.


Anne has a very special connection with her mom.  It was so sweet to watch them laugh and cry together on the wedding day.


Anne, you were a beautiful bride!!!

We were a bit obsessed with this farm house porch 🙂
