Hayley + David | Indiana Love story Terre Haute White Chapel Wedding Beautiful Colors!

It was amazing to be part of Hayley and David’s wedding in Terre Haute Indiana, While most think it’s a vacation to be able to go and shoot weddings in other states, usually it’s a lot of work, traveling, planning, etc. However with such a welcoming, warm family all that was seemed to be over looked. Lindsay and I were arriving at the hotel where we were met by Hayley’s dad at the pool. I wanted to jump in so bad but still had to get everything charged and ready for the next day!


Being unfamiliar with the area Lindsay and I went out and had lunch scouting the area for photos. seeing if there were any special spots, well we didn’t have to go to far between the reception, and the church it self it offered such an amazing view.



Oh my!



I asked for the key to the gumball machine, and I think they thought I wanted gum:) Nope thought it would be cute sticking up in the colors. (tip if you do that, tie a small string to it that can be photoshopped out) You’ll learn once:)


The White Chapel – Terre Haute, Indiana


As you can see Hayley and David love the beach. When they came down to Daytona Beach for their Family session we captured this one here of them. That’s where it all began!

The details were so soft and sweet, a pretty green/teal with burlap accents. Just perfect!

We got that question a lot, no it’s a natural shot, the only thing edited was a light off on the right side near the orange light.



I spy, Dad giving away his daughter!



It’s spacious and open! Makes for tough challenges!
