I fell in love with photography 10 years ago. But it wasn't until I photographed my first wedding that I fell in love people. I love capturing beautiful images, but I know that pictures aren't my true purpose... people are! 
I'm incredibly grateful to be able to love and serve my brides & grooms! Helping them create the most joyful, genuine, and memorable wedding day is an honor and I wouldn't trade it for the world!

I love the pretty.
BUt live for the genuine, joyful moments.

Hey There! I'm Bailey.

Thanks for stopping by and welcome to the blog! I'm glad you're here! I work as a team on wedding days with my sweetheart, Tanner!   He's  the one who

keeps me organized while I do all the daydreaming! We are based in Lafayette, Indiana but we love to travel all over the place! We hope you grab some coffee (or wine!), put on some good tunes, and enjoy viewing our latest work!
