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!
Today I get to share a wedding that is different than any I’ve ever shared before because it’s for my brother-in-law!! Just giving you fair warning now that this post is longer than normal and the amount of “!!!” is more excessive than normal- I just couldn’t contain myself 🙂
Last December Drew and I got to photograph Justin and Katie’s proposal and it was such an honor to be a part of documenting another huge day in their lives! Except this time it was their wedding day at Prairie Stone Farm! Drew and I we were both IN the wedding and photographing it (you can read about how and all the logistics here) which made for quite an eventful day!
Here’s some highlights from the day:
HUGE shoutout to the best second shooters Kelsie and Katelynn! They did a ton and photographed huge sections of the day while Drew and I were busy being present in the bridal party (read about the logistics here) Could not have done this without them- so so thankful!
I love that Justin’s ring has “Forever & Always” engraved on the inside!!
Justin & Katie gifted each other really intentional and sweet presents! Justin wrote letters to Katie consistently from when they very first started dating all the way through their wedding day. He also got her a map of all the national parks because they have the dream to visit all of them together (so fun!). I thought it was really funny but so fitting that Katie also did a journal for Justin. She wrote in it every day from when they got engaged until their wedding day. Watching their reactions during this was so sweet!!
Katie you are STUNNING!!
Kelsie crushed these bridal party pictures!!
The groomsmen were VERY excited about their custom knife gifts!
I photographed majority of Justin & Katie’s portraits in this blog post, but I just LOVE the above shot that Kelsie captured! SO many good ones! Again, can’t express how thankful I am to have worked with such a fantastic team- Katelynn and Kelsie are incredible!
Justin & Katie we hope ya’ll are having a blast in Colorado!! WE LOVE YOU!!
