Culver Indiana Photography: Sunsets and Full Moon in Culver

Yesterday and today, Ginny and I went over to Culver Academies campus and took some shots just at sunset. Tonight, we were fortunate enough to enjoy a full moon as it rose over the lake and cast a golden glow across campus. This is a collection of our shots on campus during this time of the evening when all is quiet on campus. It has been especially quiet the past two days, as the kids and faculty/staff are on Spring Break. It’s a beautiful time of the day to take a few moments to capture the quiet calm of campus and the lake. Ginny wanted to photograph all of the trees on campus. We hope you enjoy this collection of moments at sunset on the lake and beautiful Culver Academies campus.300_1858

Culver Indiana Senior Pictures: Kirsten Senior Pictures


Today, Ginny and I photographed Kirsten, and senior at Culver Girls Academy here in Culver, Indiana. We had Culver’s campus all to ourselves, as students were on Spring break. Kirsten donned her Dress As, her Varsity sweater, and a casual outfit. We were impressed by how many gold As she had on her blazer! Kirsten rows for the crew team, so we took a few shots by the naval building and in the water. We had a great time with her and her mom. Thank you both for your laid back attitude and kindness. Ginny and I enjoyed meeting both of you, and we think Kirsten is as beautiful inside as she is outside. Best of luck next year in college, Kirsten!


Culver Indiana Children Photographer: Easter Egg Hunt

 This past weekend, we got to spend time with our nieces and nephews, and Ginny decided to do an Easter egg hunt, always a popular thing to do with the kids. It was a little chilly outside, but the kids had a blast, and we shot a few pictures to capture their fun.



Culver Indiana Wedding Photographer: Jennifer and Joe Engagement Session

Today, Ginny and I shot engagement photos for Jennifer and Joe, a couple whose wedding we will be shooting in a few weeks. The weather was beautiful and their property in the country couldn’t have been a better backdrop for some outdoor photos. We had fun shooting the two of them as they are such a warm and friendly couple to be around. As I hope the photos reflect, Jennifer and Joe have a lot of love and respect for one another and I’m sure that their marriage will go far. Between being around them for a few hours and having our first all outdoor shoot of the Spring, Ginny and I had a great time. Ginny’s comments was, “This couple belongs together.” We love it when we see that in a couple that is about to marry.


Culver Indiana Senior Pictures: Sdao Senior Pictures

Today, Ginny and I shot Culver Academy senior Jonathon Sdao at the Culver Memorial Legion Building and on the shores of Lake Maxinkuckee. Jonathon was a patient, willing sport throughout the shoot. Getting the lighting just right in the Legion Building took some trial and error and a whole lot of adjustments to get the results that we wanted. (For those not familiar with the building, it is an older building with stone walls throughout. It is a beautiful building though it does preset some challenges for photographers.) We managed though and ended up with some great shots. We wish Jonathon and his family the best as they bid Culver farewell in the coming months.


Culver Indiana Wedding Photographer: Troy and Mallory Engagement Session

 Today, we decided to give this rainy a go to get some shots of the beautiful Mallory and one of our favorites, Culver police officer Troy. Mallory and Troy are getting married in June, so we decided to wait on engagement photos for this Spring. We have had several sunny days, so we scheduled the engagement session and got rain… Still, Mallory and Troy put on some color and provided some together time for us to take a handful of pictures. They were engaged at a drive-in movie theater, which is where we plan to meet next for a photo shoot if the owners let us. We are also going to take some shots with Troy in his Culver uniform. Troy said the sweetest thing today. He said that over 70% of police officers divorced after just three years, but he and Mallory were going to beat those odds. After today, I have no doubt that will be the case.
