2018 was a whirlwind of a year! It was such a crazy few months for Eli and I as we moved to a different state, and even found out that we are expecting our sweet baby. Both of those changes marked huge milestones of changes for Mathers Photography, but I’m so excited to find out a new norm in 2019 ✨ I’m vowing to find a better balance with less screen time and more relationships. I want to thank each and every person who supports MP… because it wouldn’t be the same without you! The Lord has blessed this business more than I could have ever imagined, and I’m so so thankful.
When I think back to every one of these beautiful weddings..I can’t help but feel so honored to be apart of so many special moments with so many wonderful people 💕 Whether it is taking photos of the first kiss, helping fluff out a dress, witnessing first look tears, planning out a timeline for the day, or even giving grandma a helping hand…It’s such an amazing feeling to have couples who trust me to capture one of the biggest days in their lives!
With that being said, I wanted to highlight some of my favorite weddings moments from the year. It was really hard to pick out my favorites, so I hope you enjoy reflecting on the details of a beautiful year with me 🎊
Joe and Mo hired me for an intimate St Patty’s day wedding ☘️ I loved how laid back and fun they were. Mo had the most adorable green shoes..and I died over that dress. They embraced the cold and rainy weather with smiles on their face. Such a fun day!
Luke and Autumn’s day in Evansville was beautiful ❤️I remember walking around downtown Newburgh to find some photo spots..and we found THE perfect area for bridal party photos. We turned the corner and found a gorgeous bridge area that was completely covered with trees…Aka lots of beautiful shade!
Some details I didn’t notice until after the fact: Autumn is a cosmetologist and we ended up with some of my favorite getting ready photos. Also, I ended up posing the brides maids (on accident) in a way that their hair looks like “ombre” 🙈😂 Such a sweet coincidence!
Jacob and Kyra’s day was filled with so much joy ✨You can see it not only in the smiles on their faces, but also in the bubbly pink details they decorated with. I was absolutely in AWE of how beautiful Kyra’s bouquet was! I probably spent a whole thirty minutes shooting details with it 😍Another moment that sticks out to me from that day is the mother + son dance during the reception. Just check out the photo below..it’ll melt your heart!
Cierra and Hank’s big day was near and dear to my heart! I’m good friends with these two love birds..and it was an honor to go to Anna Maria Island, Florida and capture their wedding day ❤️I love how well they handled the Florida summer heat and that you can’t even tell it on their faces! We went down to the water in the middle of the day and got some of my favorite shots. Hank and Cierra were so sweet and comfortable with one another, that it made my job super easy to pose them. I wish we could relive this day!
Jacob and Rebekah had the infamous Royal wedding 👑There was something about Rebekah’s princess dress, the spot we had their first look, and how their reception was decorated that made me feel like the king and queen were getting married. My favorite moments with these two are when we escaped from the reception for some newly wed portraits. I loved how Jacob and Rebekah “let loose” and modeled for the camera!
Sophie and Zach had a gorgeous summer wedding at Abram Farm in Indiana ☀️This couple was such a joy to work with- I truly connected so much with Sophie that it felt like we had been friends for a long time!
I think you’ll be just as obsessed with the details from this day like I was. Sophie did such a great job with planning all of those sentimental details out..she is an event planner and you could totally tell. Everything from her colors, to her getting ready pajamas; to the glasses they had mimosas in for toasting. Her perfume bottle even coordinated with her colors. I was seriously giddy when I was taking all the detail photos!
After moving down to Florida, it was so neat coming back to Indiana and shooting this gorgeous fall wedding! Keegan and Heather got married at their Alma Mater, Indiana University 🔴⚪️ The campus is such an amazing place to take photos, because the opportunities are endless. Keegan and Heather also gave me plenty of beautiful details and poses to work with! They were so precious to photograph…some of my favorite photos we took are of them with the sun flare at the end 💛
Mr and Mrs Mason
Landon and Abby’s wedding is for sure to give you all the feels 😍These long time sweethearts shed lots of tears on their wedding day…whether it was while they read notes from each other, during their first look, or even during the ceremony. I may have even shed a few tears myself! Abby’s maroon converse and the old classic car were two of my favorite details from the wedding. I loved being apart of every minute of this whole day 🍂
