Bread & Chocolate Goshen IN Wedding Jess & Tyler

We are sharing all the details of Jess and Tyler’s wedding day at Bread & Chocolate in Goshen, IN!

Jess and Tyler’s love story started with a three hour long date at a local Starbucks where they talked and talked as they felt the hours pass by in the span of minutes. They quickly began dating and fell in love over the span of the next three weeks before Tyler left for college. They both graduated and the plan for a snowy winter proposal was hatched by Tyler!

Tyler planned to orchestrate a snowy winter proposal for Jess, because that was her dream, but the winter weather in Indiana was less than cooperative with his plan. Tyler knew that he could still make the proposal happen with one of their favorite holiday traditions. The couple headed off to downtown Fort Wayne to check out the Santa light display together and take a selfie with Santa (their tradition) and that is where Tyler asked Jess to be his forever! Both of their families were waiting in the wings and secretly capturing the exact moment as it unfolded.

Just for fun, we asked Jess and Tyler to use three words to describe the other and here’s what they told us! Tyler descried Jess as driven, passionate, and loving. While Jess described Tyler as selfless, easygoing, and affectionate. Don’t they sound like the perfect match?!

Their wedding day at one of our favorite local wedding venues, Bread & Chocolate in Goshen, IN, had so many sweet anticipated moments. We captured a first look between Jess and her dad, in the bridal suite, after our beautiful bride was fully attired and ready to walk down the aisle. Tyler and Jess also shared a first look with each other. Tyler waited under the beautifully draped and twinkle light sparkling ceremony location as Jess slowly trailed up the aisle from behind to surprise her groom. Beaming smiles and warm embraces emerged! They said their I dos amongst friends and family and their sweet evening ended with a naked style wedding cake!

Rosy Mound Natural Area Adventure Photo Session | Valerie & Taylor

Valerie & Taylor are celebrating their love for one another with a couples photo shoot at Rosy Mound Natural Area in Grand Haven Michigan!

One of our absolute favorite things about working with our couples to capture their love story is that we always instantly feel like they are old friends!! It was that exact feeling while I worked with Valerie & Taylor. They are absolutely both hilarious, and they had me cracking up with laughter for the entire shoot.

Valerie & Taylor met just over two years ago at Harmony Brewing in Grand Rapids. They were both just minding their own business, enjoying some pizza when flirty eye contact ensued. Taylor approached Valerie and challenged her to a pizza eating contest and two years into their relationship their commitment to never leaving a pizza unfinished still stands!!

We decided to brave the freezing temperatures together and met up at Rosy Mound Natural Area for their couple’s photo session.  Rosy Mound is one of our favorite outdoorsy photo shoot locations and it is absolutely overflowing with Pine Trees, Sand Dunes, and sparkling Lake Michigan; what more could you possibly ask for?! It sets right on the lake and is only about 30 minutes from Grand Rapids. Our personal favorite was when we asked the couple to hold hands and run straight toward the camera! Valerie was a total rock star running in heels and a floor-length dress and the couple could not stop laughing after accomplishing this maneuver, the results are truly priceless.

Valerie & Taylor later told us that this photoshoot was the first time that they had ever visited Rosy Mound together and they have since returned for walks in the woods and along the beach!

Red Rocks Canyon Couples Session | Amanda & Ashley

The best reason ever to celebrate your love story? Just because you want to! We did just that with Amanda & Ashley’s Red Rock Canyon Couples Photo Session!

The past four weeks were an absolute whirlwind for Erin! (one half of the Hey Sisters! Photography duo) Four states, hours of driving, meeting so many awesome people, an amazing photography workshop, a rock slide, AND a snow storm!! If she wasn’t driving - she was shooting and climbing around rocks and it all ended with a trip to the hot springs.

With every trip she has taken, Erin has learned more about herself, what fuels her passion, and what makes her smile. Photographing Amanda & Ashley’s couple’s photoshoot at Red Rocks Canyon in Colorado is high at the top of her list!

Amanda and Ashley are so sincerely sweet, amazingly kind, and totally adorable! Amanda and Ashley have been dating just about seven months after meeting online (modern-day love story!) and they enjoy spending time together being active with hiking, camping, snowshoeing, and playing golf and tennis. Erin formed an immediate bond with Amanda & Ashley over a shared love for the Canadian Band ‘Wild Rivers’. Amanda & Ashley’s first official vacation together was six weeks into their relationship when they drove out to Chicago to hear ‘Wild Rivers’ live, it seemed fated that the beautiful couple ended up right in front of Erin’s camera!


Though Amanda & Ashley had taken lots of pictures together to document their love story, this was their first time having a professional photo shoot as a couple. They both later told us how at ease and natural they felt being in front of Erin’s camera!! And they also told us that their favorite image from their couple’s photo session at Red Rock Canyon (which you will, of course, get to see below!) is the photo of them snuggled face to face, close together. It was such a beautiful moment between them and you can easily feel the love that they have for one another, it’s definitely one of our favorites too!

Bread & Chocolate Goshen, IN Wedding | Mackenzie & Steven

Mackenzie and Steven are two high school sweethearts who were married at Bread & Chocolate in Goshen, IN!

Bread & Chocolate has to be one of our absolute favorite wedding venues in the Goshen area!  I mean how much are we loving that name?! The venue itself sits on the third floor of the historic Old Bag Factory (we snapped a shot from outside so you’ll get an idea!) and it’s a lofty yet romantic space with ultra modern vibes. the perfect spot for Mackenzie and Steven to say I do.

Steven put a lot of thought into when and where he would pop the question, and you are going to the love the sentiment behind it. Mackenzie and Steven had been planning to move to Maryland and were there on a trip before their big move. Steven took Mackenzie out to dinner at an old school house turned hip restaurant and popped the question then! He wanted to ask Mackenzie to marry him while they were in Maryland so that when they finally made the official move, it already felt like home to them! How thoughtful is that?!

When it came time for their wedding day Mackenzie and Steven decided to have a first look with one another in their space at Bread & Chocolate before meeting down the aisle for the official ‘I dos’. Mackenzie confided in us that she had talked Steven into doing a first look because she didn’t think she could go the whole day before seeing him. We captured all the reactions from their first look, including plenty of smiles and Steven twirling Mackenzie around in her fairytale gown.

After they made it official, we took the bride and groom, along with their bridal party, outdoors where a fresh blanket of crisp white snow awaited us. Mackenzie wore a short fur jacket over her bridal gown to keep warm, and her bridesmaids all wore cozy white chenille scarves with tassels. Steven and his groomsmen all looked dapper as they strolled down Chicago Avenue.

Cobus Creek Indiana Family Photos | Northwest Indiana Family Photography

This sweet momma, and her beautiful babes adventured with me a few weeks ago at Cobus Creek Park , located in the northwest corner of Elkhart County! It’s a gorgeous little park in Osceola, Indiana, and a great place to soak up some nature!

I have been lucky enough to know Kristen for 5+ years now. My sister and I photographed their wedding back in 2013, and their family has grown by two since then! Elliott and Edie are little sweethearts, and Elliott is the cutest big brother!

We ventured to Cobus Creek back in April, so spring was emerging slowly during that time, but the blooms were beginning to bud, and the beautiful blue sky made for the perfect evening!

We got to walk a few trails, played in the water, blew some bubbles, and of course, played on the playground! It was a wonderful evening for an adventure with these beautiful souls!
