The Alexander Hotel Weddings | Indianapolis Wedding Photographer

 

Amanda & Mike were married at the stunning Alexander Hotel in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The Alexander is one of my Favorite wedding venues. It’s modern, vibrant, and a work of art all in it’s own. This entire day was stylish, well planned and beautiful.  It was such a pleasure to meet this sweet family and to capture their wedding day.

Amanda & Mike, I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them. Welcome home from your honeymoon in Curacao!

 Mike’s mother passed away before she was able to see her son marry the love of his life. To honor his mother, Amanda had cufflinks made from his mother’s ashes so she could be a part of the wedding she would have loved so much.

Indianapolis Museum of Art Wedding Editorial by Danielle Harris Photography

Every bride we’ve ever photographed has said that their wedding day went by in a blur. We were inspired to create something timeless, romantic, and thoughtful by the quote from Walt Whitman

“We were together, I forget the rest”

Our vision was to bring to life a classic love story from romantic literature with the love of books being the center of our story. This elopement editorial  took place at The Lilly House and Oldfields Gardens in Indianapolis, Indiana. Elegant and perfectly manicured grounds provided the perfect backdrop to bring this fairytale to life.

Wedding Day Timeline Tips and Tricks

Hello Bride to Be!

Make sure to read all the info below for the perfect wedding day timeline! Amazing pictures start with a great timeline!
Danielle-Harris-Photography21

Planning out the schedule will allow us to get all of the photographs that are important to you in as short a time as possible. Here is a rough guide to the amount of time necessary:

• Bride and honor attendants: 30 minutes (Minimum of One hour before the ceremony is recommended)
• Groom and honor attendants: 30 minutes (before the ceremony is recommended)
• Wedding couple together: 30 minutes MINIMUM!
• Whole wedding party & parents: 45 minutes
• Extended family: I recommend keeping the formal groupings to a short list. If you would like more formals with extended family we will plan for them during our phone call, and budget the necessary additional amount of time.

We will need a Minimum of 1 hour and 30 minutes for photography. 

Danielle-Harris-Photography04
The Natural Light makes a Huge difference in the look and feel to your photos. Have a back up photo location with lots of windows and natural light for your rain option.DSC_66611.Everyone needs to be dressed and ready 1-2 hours before the ceremony for pictures–Even if you aren’t going to see the groom before the ceremony. We will do bride and bridesmaids pictures followed by groom and groomsmen.

2.Please have your details all together. This is the first thing I photograph when I arrive. This includes BOTH rings, Invitations, Dress, Shoes, Garter, Flowers, Jewelry, Family Heirlooms…Danielle-Harris-Photography01

3.{Have your stylists come to you.}  We photograph the details first, If you don’t get ready in a hotel or the wedding venue, You will not have hair and makeup pictures.

4. Keep in mind that if you wedding venue’s bridal space is dark, cluttered, or in most cases- school rooms–Your pictures will suffer. I suggest getting a hotel room to get ready in for the most bright and modern pictures.

DSC_0513

5. We suggest that you waive the receiving line. You will have plenty of time to greet and mingle with your guests during the reception. Receiving lines take up a huge amount of time.

6. The photographer will need to be in the reception room for a clean room shot 15 minutes before they let guests in the room or earlier in the day. Please speak with the venue and ask when the photographer can get in for room shots. Danielle Harris Photography07

7. FIRST LOOKS. First looks are great because you can get all of the photos taken ahead of time. This allows you to enjoy the reception and have great pictures that aren’t rushed. The best room of thumb would be to have a first look AT LEAST after 2pm for better light ….the better the light – the better the photos.  If you want to know more about if you should do a first look, click here

Indianapolis weddings

 

If you don’t do a first look: Please allow for a MINIMUM of an hour and thirty minutes after the ceremony for bride and groom portraits, bridal party pictures, and family formals. This will need to be about 1-2 hours BEFORE Sunset.

Sample Timeline with Sunset at 8pm

1:00 Bride puts Dress on, Bridal Pictures                                                                                           2:00: Bride and Groom’s First Look
2:30: Bridal Party Pictures
3:30 – family portraits  (If you have more than 6 groupings, we will need more time)
4:30 – completely done with portraits – bridal party freshens up while guests arrive
5:00 – ceremony (perfect light for an outdoor ceremony is one hour before sunset)
5:30 – cocktail hour or straight to reception (if you do your portraits before the ceremony you can enjoy your cocktail hour with your guests or if the day has run behind, we will still have time to finish up pictures)

6:30: Dinner                                                                                                                                                       7:30 – Bride and Groom Sunset Pictures (15 minutes)                                                                   8:00: Cake cutting, first dances                                                                                                            9:00pm: Photography Coverage ends

My most popular packages include 8 hours of coverage or more on the wedding day.  I would suggest that the bride and groom have me shooting  from: 1:00 – 9:00pm with the timeline above.

Ryan and Gina were married at the Historic Ambassador House and Heritage Gardens in Fishers, Indiana. In their vows, they described each other as an anchor, a partner, and the missing puzzle piece to their lives. Across three states, the couple and their families planned this wedding down to the last detail. The wedding was full of warm fall colors, unique table decor, and thoughtful touches like the doughnut and apple cider bar to keep guests cozy before the wedding.

Baby James is here!

It just goes to show you, that no matter how much you plan, you can’t predict how your childbirth will go.  I was so lucky to have an amazing pregnancy. It was smooth sailing from day one. I even shot an engagement session at 39 weeks! My labor and delivery were not as flawlessly executed. We went to classes, hired a doula, made a birth plan, and felt absolutely ready for a natural childbirth. I started having contractions at 4am on Thursday March 26th. I labored at home for 11 hours until my water broke at 3pm. We decided that it was finally time to go to the hospital. J.D. packed all the bags in the car, and we were off! At this time, I felt confident in the ability to give birth naturally and excited to meet baby James.  Those feelings of confidence started to disappear as the contractions continued, but my body wasn’t dilating.  We tried everything…We walked, changed positions, sat on the birth ball, and finally we agreed to do pitocin. (without an epidural)

Pitocin contractions were an animal I wasn’t prepared for. The contractions were long and 10x’s harder than natural labor contractions. I was sure that we had to be making good progress with so many hours of intense contractions. I was wrong.At my last check, we had NO CHANGE! I couldn’t believe it. At this point, I had been in labor 53 hours….That’s right 53.

At this point, it had been too long since my water had broken and it was time for a C-Section. The one thing about childbirth I hadn’t really done any research on. The nurses got me ready and J.D. put on his scrubs. We were on our way to surgery. I felt short lived relief when i heard him cry for the first time. He was perfect. But he had to be taken out of the O.R. without letting me hold him. I sent J.D. with the baby and almost immediately after they left the room, I had complications. The Dr. started ordering more drugs to be administered and the nurses suddenly stopped talking about their weekend plans.  It turned out that due to the prolonged labor, my body was just tired and I lost too much blood. In the end, we have so much to be thankful for. The complications during my surgery made for a longer recovery, but no long term issues. But most of all, we are thankful for our healthy and happy baby boy.

James Daniel Harris born March 28th 2015

After 6 long days in the hospital I learned that My husband is absolutely the strong one in our relationship.  I couldn’t have made it through this experience without his constant support.
I never knew how much I needed his encouragement to push myself and that holding his hand is the only thing that helps when I’m scared. He is absolutely my better half and baby James is so lucky to have him as a father.

Every diaper change, every feeding, every screaming refusal to sleep in the first days of our babies life were handled by his super hero dad
