Wedding day Portrait

Briar Ridge Country Club Wedding Photographer | Jessica & Brandon


The moment I met Jessica & Brandon I knew I would be in good company. We spent the year chatting and going over all of the important details of their wedding day. There was a strong emphasis on family. At the same time as I was driving to Schererville Indiana, clouds begin to roll in. Being a wedding photographer, I am always a bit nervous for my clients. I  always want them to have as much of a stress-free wedding as possible. Good thing we all planned accordingly in case of a downpour.

I arrived at Jessica and Brandon’s new home for the groom’s getting ready shots. They literally had just moved in! You could smell that “New Home” smell.  After getting all of my shots with the guys (I had the best time with these guys) I headed on over to Briar Ridge Country Club. I had never been to the Briar Ridge Club and my first impression was I felt a sense of family. All of the ladies were in great spirits just admiring the bride to be. Jessica is such a warm and easy-going person and on her wedding day was no different.

We got some beautiful shots of the bride getting ready with her mama helping her every step of the way. Outside we put Brandon in position to see his bride for the very first time that day. The First Look! The look, the embrace, and tears were just raw and beautiful emotions coming from two very special people who seem like they have never been apart. Not only was I able to squeeze in family formals but Bridal party shots and bridal portraits as well. All before the rain came. Thank you mother nature for corporating. The wedding ceremony & reception went without a hitch! Every wedding should have the same electricity as Jessica & Brandon’s! The way they look at each other is inspiring. The way they dance together is a lesson for us all. Seriously, I hope you love looking through these images as much as I enjoyed shooting this wedding.


Jessica & Brandon…thank you for an incredible day.
