Jill & Brandon's Backyard Nuptials :: Fort Wayne Wedding Photography

Jill and Brandon’s wedding was my first backyard wedding, and I’m utterly smitten.

From the relaxed pre-wedding feel (I shot the details while groomsmen splashed in the pool and oldies music wafted out of nearby speakers), to the beautiful intimate reception, I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend a Saturday.
