Day After | Jessica + Derek


After a fun engagement session and their fabulous wedding, I was lucky enough to spend some more time with Jessica and Derek after their Big Day.  More than just an excuse to wear her gorgeous dress again and to see her new husband all decked out in his tux, they weathered the steamy temps to get some beautiful and romantic portraits in a more relaxed environment.   With jam packed timelines typical of a wedding day, this session allows the bride and groom to just be together and enjoy each other’s company without any stress or demands.  And these kinds of portraits were very important to Jessica, a girl after my own heart!  Jessica and Derek, thank you for letting go and trusting me with this session.  Besides being such a dashing duo, you’re so fun, so kind, and so wonderful!  Let’s get straight to their images, shall we?  

After hopping a plane to Venice, they enjoyed a serene ride through the canals. 
Ok, ok…so maybe we didn’t go to Venice, but this is the next best thing in downtown Indianapolis!

Passers-by congratulated the newlyweds. 

Love this one!

Jessica, you are such a beautiful bride!

The gondolier sang to them in Italian.  Swoon!
Gorgeous light, gorgeous couple!

Even the geese wished them well!

As did the kayakers!

That’s amore!

After disembarking the gondola, we strolled around in the beautiful evening light.

More favorites!  

This was one of those moments when the light, the mood, everything was just perfect.  LOVE! 

Jessica and Derek were excited to leave for their Hawaiian honeymoon bright and early the next morning.  Perhaps they were imagining relaxing on the beach here.  😉

Seriously beautiful. 

Fierce and fabulous!

Well hello there, newlyweds! 🙂

Jessica and Derek, I cannot thank you enough for allowing me to share in this important time in your lives.  It has been such an honor and so much fun to work with you both!  See you soon!
