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.

R.L. Wilson House Wedding | Indianapolis Wedding Photographer | Michele & Tim

Our Day began at Michele’s mother’s home in Noblesville, Indiana.  Betsy is possibly one of the sweetest people I have ever met. I can absolutely see where Michele gets it from. We all had lunch and I had THE BEST chicken salad of my life..I seriously need the recipe! The ladies drank champagne and enjoyed their time with friends while J.D. & I photographed Michele’s beautifully planned details along with her Grandmothers antique mirrors.

The reception took place at theThe Historic R.L. Wilson House. As soon as I walked in I fell in love with the classic beauty of the home. We even had our own little romantic table for two during dinner service.

Michele & Tim – Thank you for making us feel so welcomed.  We wish you nothing but love & happiness. Enjoy!

Indianapolis Wedding Photographer | 2014 Wedding Favorites

Well friends, it’s time for my favorite post of the year! And this year it is a big one.  I’ve ended 2014 having photographed so many amazing weddings.  And on top of that….a new website, a new blog, a much needed trip with my husband to Jamaica,  a big move to a small(ER) town, new friends, OH!, and I’m going to be having a baby in March! Yeah, It’s been a busy year.  🙂 I love the process of looking through old wedding posts because it takes me back to some of my favorite moments  and reminds me why I love my job so much! I get to be a part of one of the most joyful days in a couple’s lives and I never take that for granted. It is such a huge blessing .I have come into 2015 with arms open and I’m so excited  not only for my growing family, my business, but also my new clients that I hope to call friends by the end of our crazy wedding planning journey. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s take a peek at more than a few of my favorite images from last year.                                                                                                                                      For More information on Booking with us, Please visit:

Ashley & Matt’s Valle Vista Golf Club Wedding

I have been looking forward to this wedding for so long! It was the day Ashley has always dreamed of. The wedding was a stunning event complete with Gatsby Golf Limousines, a horse and carriage departure, and the greatest group of friends and family anyone could ask for. I was so happy to be Ashley’s Matron of Honor. It was a blessing to be able to witness such love from the front row. I wanted to be present in the moment so my husband and I  only took a few pictures, and put the camera away to dance and have fun!  Here are some of the beautiful details from their special day.
