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!
Our bedroom has taken me a while! We started living in this house in June of 2018 and it wasn’t until February (9 months later) of 2019 that this space felt “complete.” This is our safe haven and place of rest so I love that it finally feels finished!!
I actually remembered to take pictures on my iPhone throughout this process so you could see the progression over the past 9 months!
June – September (this is what it looked like for our first 4 months)
This felt like bare bones for a while and I wasn’t fond of it but our budget only allowed us to prioritize one room at a time which started with the spaces where people/we would be most: living room, dining room, & my office. Soo this got put on the back burner!
September – January (this is what it looked like for the following 6 months)
What changed from phase one: We bought a new bed spread & added toss pillows, curtains, and frames to the walls. I rearranged the lamps & decorations we had on our dressers & put the fan on the ground.
What changed: We bought a new headboard, side tables and lamps. I made our vows in InDesign & got them printed at Staples- those now fill the blue frames on either side of the window above my dresser. Drew’s grammy helped me hem the four curtains panels as well! I rearranged the decorations on our dresser (this will likely be a never ending change haha) and side tables.
