Indianapolis Wedding Photography | Rogue Images Photography - Indianapolis Wedding Photographer

3 Weddings In 1 Weekend = 1 Exhausted Photographer (But we're totally cool with that!)


Right, so let me start off by saying you all are amazing for keeping us SO busy.  So much so that in an effort to work for more of you, we do 2 things; work 40+ hours in a weekend, and explore ways for us to tell more of your stories, and that involves a new development for Rogue Images Photography: a full time 2nd LEAD shooter is available.  We now get to cover twice as many weddings for you awesome people!  Kendra is taking on her own weddings under the Rogue Images Photography brand and already has 3 booked for next year after just a week of being up and running!

Amazing things are ahead for everyone involved with Rogue Images Photography and we're so incredibly honored to have you all on this journey with us!

Which brings me to the next 2 weekends, 10/1 and 10/8 we will be at wedding shows in Indianapolis, the details for which can be found on our Facebook page.  We get to give you FREE admission as a vendor, so please go check them out and send your friends our way to come meet us! (even if they are in the "shopping" or "not yet engaged but it's coming soon" stage!)


Ok, back to this weekend...

Our first wedding of the weekend was on Friday at (and this is no joke) our favorite venue in Indy; The Barn at Kennedy Farm. (ok, technically it's in Lizton, IN).  We have 49 stories to tell this year and 8 of them are here, and we're totally cool with that.  Taylor & Ken's "fall" wedding was held on Friday, the first full day of fall, only no one told Indiana, because it was 93 and sunny all day.  Guess that's just how it goes huh?  Such a fun (and very hot) day exploring new parts of the grounds! 



Saturday brought us to Mustard Seed Gardens in Noblesville, IN.  This day I was able to shoot with my wife, Cory.  We've both gained such new perspective on weddings and wedding day, having just been through it ourselves a few months ago, and this was a very special day for us.  Lindsey & Matt, you two were so cute together!  Your day was filled with a bunch of tiny little moments that I will remember forever, from Matt telling me he has nerves on high alert while placing him for his first look, to Lindsay catching a glimpse of herself in her dress for the first time and starting to instantly cry, to footloose "interrupting" Lindsay & Dad's first dance, your day was AMAZING.  We hope you cherish these memories forever!



Sunday brought us to Avon Wedding Barn in Avon, IN.  This was our first time at this location, and again, despite the abnormal heat, the day was AMAZING for Megan & Andrew!  Your ceremony under the tree with your family around the instrumentals playing was just perfect and your cow bell send off is one of my favorites yet!  You two have a great relationship and it will be fun to see if grow!

Lauren & Kyle | 8.26.17


Not all "wedding" days have a "wedding" included in them for us.  Lauren & Kyle got the itch last summer and had a ceremony in Florida...BUT...The caterer, photographer, dress and countless other things were already paid for, and so, here we are, at the personal property, where Lauren runs her Salon, Salon 24, where Kyle "plays" with his backhoe.  Where we did bridal portraits and the first look inside of their home under construction, where we walked across the street to an orchard for some 1 on 1 photos, and where we had 2 hours of time to take photos of just Lauren, because someone (ahem, Kyle) was told he could be 2 hours late.

We often speak of "becoming friends" with our clients, as opposed to just being a vendor.  Lauren & Kyle are a perfect example of this.  Lauren did all the hair for our wedding in July, she cuts my hair every 2 weeks and we've seen each other's businesses grow and flourish.

This is why we do what we do.  For amazing people like them!


Indianapolis Wedding Photographer | Indiana Rustic Weddings | Indianapolis Wedding Photography |The Wedding Of Olivia & Ryan

Olivia & Ryan | 8.31.17


The start of all things good.  Not only was this Olivia & Ryan's special day, but it was the start of our most favorite time of the year: fall wedding season! 10 weddings in 30 days, 7 in 40 days at The Barn at Kennedy Farm alone and a full 24 weddings from 8.31 to 11.11. This is going to be so much fun!

Oh, and after 5 trips to The Barn at Kennedy Farm, we FINALLY got a chance at an outdoor ceremony! We'll be back this Sunday, so keep checking for more blog updates!

9.2.17 - The Wedding of Ali & Stephen


Right.  So, where do we start.  This day was incredible.  Ali & Steven had plenty amazing opportunities for amazing images through the day and boy, did they take full advantage of them!

For today, we brought our good friend Brett as a 3rd person to help out as a wedding coordinator/extra set of hands and we liked this so much that we'll need to look into this option for 2018 weddings, so stay tuned for that!

Our day was at French Lick Resort and the Pete Dye Golf Course, the 2nd highest point in Indiana and provided an INCREDIBLE backdrop for their day. This was our first time there, and even though it's a long trip from Indy, we hope to have the chance to go back again soon!

Enjoy this preview from their day!

Maddi Smith


I think my favorite part about shooting for seniors is that, more often than not, 1 senior sends another senior our way and before we know it, we've shot for most friends in a group.

That's exactly the case with Maddi.  We shot for her friend Miranda this past spring, and now had the chance to shoot for her a few weeks ago.  We did something a little different in doing 1/2 of our shoot downtown Indianapolis and the other half at our favorite park.  Needless to say, we loved this result and it was such a great night!

Enjoy!


Indianapolis Wedding Photography | Indianapolis Wedding Photographer | The Wedding of Lindsey & Matt

Lindsey & Matt | 8.25.17 | Second Presbyterian Church & River Glen Country Club


I broke a rule.  I have a rule, no weddings shot without shooting an engagement session first. This allows us to get to know each other and get a sense of what our clients are looking for on wedding day.  With Lindsey & Matt, I broke this rule...

...and in a way, I'm kind of glad we did. Sometimes surprises are the best. 

Because look at this day.  A complete and total surprise for us and what a day it was!  Lindsey & Matt found us by searching online, and after a few emails and a phone call or two, we were booked to tell their story.

We planned the day out to the last minute, (although someone was an hour late, ahem, Lindsey - but you know, timezones... :) ) got a shot list from them and started our day, and then we walked into THAT CHURCH. Um, more in this place please! (and the golf course wasn't bad either).

Thank you, Lindsey & Matt, for an amazing day!  Your kind words of "best wedding photos ever" and "best decision we made" just made our day (and MAYBE our year...). Laughing and having fun with you was the absolute best part of our day.

Here's to you both! Enjoy.

Sammy & Kevin


When you know, you know.  

That's what I love about Sammy.  We met her at the Indianapolis Perfect Wedding Guide show in January of 2017.  Within 3 days of the show, we had a meeting set at Sun King for a few drinks, and we were booked to tell their story for them this fall.  She MAY have had to convince Kevin to go along with her plan, but that's the fun part for us, she knew instantly that she wanted us to tell their story.

This was the 2nd session we did with these two awesome people.  The first session was way back in February on a ridiculously nice 70 degree Saturday.  She had wanted to have 2 different looks for their session, one downtown, and then our favorite, a classic Indiana park/county look.  This is what makes working with us awesome, is when you want to do your engagement session with us, we can (if we are clever with the planning) split your session into two 1 Hour sessions and get you two very different looks for your engagement session.

Enjoy round 2 of Sammy & Kevin, and if you like what you see, drop us a line to have us tell your story for you!

Dean Kruse


We often tell and ask about how we can tell your stories for you.  Meet Dean.  Dean is a senior at Zionsville High School.  He bought his motorcycle in his session with his own money by working at Goodwill, works hard and wanted something "different" for his portraits than what other seniors at Zionsville were doing.

This is what we love.  Dean, and his bike, make his story his.  That's why we encourage each of our seniors to bring something unique to their session with us. We want your photos to be a reflection of you and who YOU are.

Tera & Jeremy

Let's face it.  Planning a wedding is stressful.  Like really, really stressful.  So many of our clients have over a year from start to finish to plan & execute their wedding day, these two awesome people are pulling it off in under 4 months.  Engaged in July, to be married the first week of November. Crazy?  Maybe.

But look at these two. :)

This is why we do engagement sessions with you.  First, we get to know you on a more personal level and second, we give you a night to just enjoy being around each other and JUST HAVE FUN.

Weddings are stressful, timelines are stressful.  Engagement sessions, are just fun. :)


Indianapolis Engagement Photography | Downtown Indianapolis Engagement Session

McKinzee & Cody

Right, so let's talk about how awesome you all are.  Or more specifically, how awesome it is that so many of you know each other... (and recommend us to each other!)

McKinzee & Cody did their 2nd engagement session with us this past week in advance of their wedding this upcoming fall on a night when we did 3 engagement sessions as a whole.  McKinzee knew at least 1 of them, and had no idea we were working for them also, and she's sent at least 4 other couples our way, to have us tell their story for them as well, all before we even get to her own wedding.

This you guys, is why we do this.  We aren't Rogue Images Photography as a company and clients, we are Rogue Images Photography as a family.  You all are amazing and have so many amazing stories to tell, and we can't wait to write each new chapter with you all.

Thank you, friends, family and fans...

Keep being awesome.

Amanda & Nick

We're doing a destination wedding, but we want to get engagement photos in our home city, what do we do?

DO.IT.

We're HUGE proponents of engagement sessions in general, but even more so for destination weddings as they give you a chance to bring a chunk of "home" to your day.  Amanda & Nick chose to have their session in downtown Indianapolis (and we're doing a fall session at our favorite park as well, check for that later this year!) and the night was PERFECT.  We have such amazing monuments and memorials downtown, that we LOVE to use them with our couples and just wonder around and see what we can find.

Enjoy this sneak peek of their session!

The wedding of Kelsey & Ryan | 8.12.17


Who sews her own wedding backdrop quilt, mini quilts for center pieces, the boys' pocket squares and gets excited beyond all belief; to the point that she's like, OK, let's go home after opening her gift from Ryan - a new sewing machine?  Kelsey.  Kelsey does.

These two LOVE each other and LOVE being around their friends.  Can you tell?

We are so happy to have been chosen to tell their story!  First coming to us from Courtney & Jeff's wedding in May of 2016, these 2 asked us to also tell their story and we will be forever thankful.

Thank you both for an amazing day!  We loved telling your story for you and good luck in Columbus!

Senior Portraits Season Is In Full Swing!


Hi! My name is Madison DiCristofolo. Most people know me as Maddi.

I am 17 and a student at New Palestine High-school. I am now in my third year of show choir where I am the vice president. I am also a member of Helping Hands, National Honors Society, Spanish Honor Society, and Academic Honor Society. I am very involved in school and extremely focused on my career after High-school.

I applied for a paid internship at Elanco (Eli Lilly and company) my junior year and recently have started working there. This will help me build up a good college resumé so I will hopefully get accepted into IUPUI this fall.

My goal is to go to IUPUI for elementary school teaching and a minor in business to stay close to home and transition into my new life as a college student. 


Indianapolis Wedding Photography | The Wedding of Victoria & Scott

Rogue Images Photography | Indianapolis Wedding Photographer


Victoria & Scott | 7.15.17

It's not often that Indy shows us just how small of a town it really is, but during the consultation with Victoria, we found out that she actually works for my wife's (ok that's weird to say LOL) aunt at One America.  From there, our connection and friendship grew...

We then met Scott at Indianapolis Cars & Coffee a few weekends later and even got to meet Sampson that day too!  Apparently, Scott shares my love for Mustangs!

These two are just awesome together.  The more time we spent with them, the more we're like we're going to see each other many, many more times after the wedding is over!

Ok, so let's talk about their day at Mill Top in Noblesville, on a Sunday (With a FULL OPEN BAR).  Yeah, that happened and people had fun.  Someone (not going to name names, but the one in white) may have cried seeing herself in her dress for the first time while I was asking her to pose.  Someone else cried when he found out his grandpa would be by his heart all day...

Seriously, Victoria & Scott, you two are amazing people.  Thank you for letting us be there for you and we look forward to drinks on our porch here soon!


Indiana Wedding Photography | The Wedding of Ashley & Eric at Wea Creek Orchard

7.15.17 | Ashley & Eric | Wea Creek Orchard Wedding


Back at it.  Back home.

We're back!  After almost a month off for our own wedding, we returned to duty with this amazing rustic & elegant wedding at Wea Creek Orchard in Lafayette.  This was our first time to this venue and it did not disappoint!

Ashley and Eric's day was near perfect.  Not too humid, not too hot, but bright, sunny and full of love! Eric's reaction to seeing his bride was one of the best we've had in some time and then the dancing in the barn under the chandelier followed up by another one of our favorites: night time flash.

Thank you both for allowing us to be there for you on your day! We loved telling your story for you!
