Jesus and Casandra are married!

  After meeting Jesus and Casandra I knew this would be a rock and roll wedding, and I was not disappointed.   11.11.17 - Twin Flames.  

Best of Weddings 2017 - Grant Beachy Photo

Did a little surf back through weddings and picked a few photos. These weren't all my most technical photos, or all perfect poses, but the memories of these times made me happy. The memories are the value anyway. Man, you guys rock. It was such an honor to be there on these days you put so much love into. Thank you.

Skye and Dillon are married.

One of the shortest and still most visually rich weddings I've shot all year.  Skye and Dillon brought an understated and simple style that worked perfectly to project an old Hollywood feel.  I decided to shoot it that way.  Bread and Chocolate was a perfect venue to help me achieve that goal.    

Kent and Sara and married!

Made a trip down to Evansville, IN for this awesome wedding.  So many fun and heartfelt moments, which always makes me feel good to be able to capture, and I'm gonna say Kent and Sara were the most enthusiastic dancers this year :-).  Congrats! 

Paul and Emily are married!

I had fun chatting cars and bikes with Paul and Emily last year at their engagement session, and the theme continued into their wedding.  Emily is a fiercely passionate person, and as I watched them together, I saw how Paul was a great counterpart to her, and how he also cared deeply.  It was meaningful to be able to stop to pay tribute to Paul's father, and the personal vows Paul and Emily read to each other at the reception were beautiful.  We finished up with a few photos outside the Lerner, and in the concession stand where Paul worked when he was still in High School.  Congrats guys, and wish you all the happiness!

Michael and Maggie are married!

Finally got to photograph at Red Tail Farm, and it was beautiful wedding to get started with.  I loved the outdoor ceremony spot, and there were so many neat little touches from this wedding.  Congrats guys!  

Brooke and Mike are married!

Brooke and Mike got married at the beginning of a crazy run of shoots for me, on what felt like one of the hottest days of the year, but I love how these photos turned out.  It was a beautiful day. Congrats guys! 

Veronica is a Quinceañera.

Something totally new for me.  A Quinceañera can feel similar to a wedding celebration but in emphasis and tradition, it is very different, with it's own customs and cues.   I had such a great time learning more about this important time, and it was an honor to photograph it.  

Bone Thugs-n-Harmony

Two weeks ago I got an email asking me to photograph a performance at Four Winds Field in South Bend.  I assumed it was for a national anthem as my brain went to baseball, but after a bit of research I discovered it was for Bone Thugs-n-Harmony who was playing with Ludacris.  Woah.  No way I'm passing that up.  After a few emails back and forth, I met Flesh at their hotel, and went on a wild ride.  After asking "is there anything you don't want photographed?" the answer was "No. Photograph everything.  Get on stage if you want. Take portraits."  You don't have to tell me twice.  I had a blast getting to see some BTS of one of rap's most enduring groups, and appreciate the faith they put into my photography.  Here's a bit of the evening.
