Hey there! I'm so glad you're here! I'm Monica Brown, a wedding photographer from Indianapolis who loves to celebrate couples & photographers. I hope you enjoy browsing through recent work, advice for brides & photographers, and taking a peek into our personal life!
Hello there! This has got to be one of my favorite posts to date because it’s packed with behind the scene shots from our 2018 wedding season! This gives you a little insight to what wedding days look like and will help you know…
Drew will get in nice and close, but not too close, to get some dreamy veil portraits!
I’ll chat up a storm with your nephew before your ceremony
Drew will show me when he snaps a picture of you that he’s super proud of
And you’ll occasionally find me on hiding on the floor during your reception backing up your wedding images
Drew will pick one strand of grass that he thinks is….in the way?
Sometimes I’ll even shoot and be IN your wedding 🙂
I’ll chase off ducks who try to photobomb your portraits
And Drew will fluff your dress (he’s quite a good fluffer!)
On the rare occasions we are in and shooting a wedding, we’ll get some nice portraits of us with our family too!
You can always count on me to do a little jig during your reception!
Drew will makes silly faces testing lighting for family portraits.
Then he’ll drop your veil to get those shots that will soon hang on your wall!
Our third shooter (& Drew’s younger brother) JT, will do his classic “blue steel” look…keeping it classy as always
When your dad has a last minute question before he walks you down the isle, I’ll be there to answer!
Before your grand ceremony exit, I’ll close the doors
and Drew will poke in to make sure you’re all set
I’ll be sure to nicely ask bystanders to move out of the background when its raining and the only place we can all go for pictures is the nearby gazebo that everyone is huddled under
And we’ll be sure to snag some behind the scenes of your incredible vendors (like Mark Batke) who we absolutely love to work with!
I’ll help fasten your flower girl’s shoes
And you can always count on Drew and I for silly faces during test shots
Drew will bring you your flowers whenever you need them
And occasionally drop his pants in front of all your bridesmaids when he gets stung by a wasp… (I’m forever laughing at this hahaha)
Once he recovers from his sting, he’ll move chairs out of the way for full bridal party pictures
And I’ll third wheel under your veil with you because who doesn’t love a good veil shot?!
You can always count on Drew to be the first one out on your dance floor…
And the go-to boutonnière fastener for your dad and groomsmen.
I’ll walk ahead of you to make sure you don’t step in mud
And lend you my winter coat so you stay warm (we’ve found that the BEST way to wear a coat while in a wedding dress in backwards!). I’ll also be sure to hold your dress to make sure you get inside smoothly
We’ll capture all your bridal party’s groovy dance moves
And your grand entrance to your reception!
Occasionally we’ll take a few test shots of us on site before I start photographing your details
and Drew will smile while shooting your First Look because ya’ll are just THE CUTEST!
You’ll see some more of JT’s cute facial expressions & he’ll be on bouquet duty too.
I’ll be sure to capture your sweet dog during your ceremony
And you can count on Drew to show your dog some love too. Needless to say, we LOVE your furry friends on your wedding day!!
And toward the end of your incredible day, we’ll always make sure we document everyone cheering to you!!
On that note,
Thanks so much for following along with us in 2018! We are beyond thankful for the couples who have invited us into such sweet seasons of their lives and that we got to document their love stories! Hope you enjoyed a little behind the scene action on all the fun 🙂 Until next year friends!
Mon & Drew
