bobbi+mike » Indianapolis-based International Wedding Photographer



Her engagement ring… my favorite.:)If I were to get mine reset… I'd make it just like hers.  BTW, can you guess what I shot this on?


 Christine, you're cute!






 I don't fullllly remember the story… but I do remember that Christine calls him Wolf… so, as her gift to him, wolf cufflinks.  I'm telling you… two thoughtful brides in a row giving the perfect cufflinks… I see a 2010 trend!:)


 You would think that with all of the shoe photos I show on this blog that I was a "shoe person"! hmmm… not the case:)I wear ugly, yet comfortable shoes.:DOur brides, however…. have AMAZING taste in shoes!!!! And I DO love photographing amazing shoes… so, maybe I AM in fact a shoe person… just not in the traditional sense:D


 Dan's funny:)


 Such a cool photo!








 This wedding party = INCREDIBLE!!! 


 I was probably saying something incredibly inappropriate.:)It's a specialty of mine.:D


:!:+:?:WOWWWWWW TO ST. LOUIS!!!!! One of our FAVORITE photos of ALLLLL time!!!!!!:!:+:?:


 bring it in TIGHT!


 Christine put lots of energy into her details… and it showed! I'm a fan:)


 Their "guestbook"


 Dad's speech:)


 OH how I love the first dance!



We had a little competition!





 $10 iTunes gift card to the first person who guesses the song they're singing to… (if you were there, you're ineligible… DUH!)

UPDATE: contest over… It seems that it was guessed pretty early! Sorry I'm getting to this a bit late as I worked out this morning and am JUST NOW sitting down at my computer.  Seriously… after only FOUR comments someone guessed?!?! I need to make these contests more difficult! The answer: Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" So… congrats to Jessica Webb! There were also at least two others who guessed right, also… so big high fives to you!




The people who made this day happen:

Day of Coordinator: Stephanie Burke & Brit Tucker
Hair and Makeup: Holly Speakes – Procolour Cosmetics
Church: Mary Mother of the Church
Florist: Lesher's Flowers
Reception Venue: The City Museum
DJ: Tom Rotter, Block Rockin' Beats
Cake: The Cakery
Etsy: 15 different Etsy vendors contributed to make our day amazing, from our invites to the bridesmaids' individual jewelry items to our rusted table numbers.  My favorite item, however, was my capelet shrug bolero by Madelin Zero



I emailed Christine a series of questions… told her she could pick out whichever ones she wanted to answer:D

Favorite moment of the day?

Christine: After the recessional, we went straight into the cry room and someone (maybe our coordinator?) shut the door so it was just us and Bobbi.
Dan: I actually thought we were going straight back out to the bus, so I didn't know what was going on
Christine: …it was just us, alone, for a few minutes for the first time in days.
Dan: And it was a perfect first moment together as husband and wife.


Any advice for future bride/grooms?   

Christine: Hire the following: a Day of Coordinator and bobbi+mike   
Dan: Something my groomsman Ben passed on to me – take a break and put yourself in the moment as much as you can – you've never experienced a day that fast in your life


Funniest memory from your wedding day?     

Christine: This clip being played right before he played the associated song.  Totally us, and totally a suprise (thanks, Tom!)    
Dan: Christine's five year old cousin, after dancing with the tambourine for seemingly hours, turning to Christine at the end of the night saying, "Excuse me, what would you like me to do with this?"  


Favorite bobbi+mike moment?   (for the record, this question wasn't included in my list… they just threw it in!:))  

Dan: When Mike awarded me "Quote of the Year" for saying, "It only takes one pair of white socks to ruin a wedding".     
Christine: When we stopped for beer after the ceremony and Mike went in to the gas station to get Bobbi a soda and snack.  We're both lucky to have amazing, thoughtful husbands:)


What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

Nacho. Cheese. Fountain.  Enough said.


By popular demand… the famous nacho cheese fountain:)



Christine and Dan, thank you for having fun with us! From getting ready to the reception… the entire day was full of perfection.  Christine, you did an AMAZING job of planning an incredible day. And to your wedding party… you guys are the DEFINITION of what a wedding party should be!






 And, yes yes yes… me with my two brides! Christine and Bridget:)


 SO hot.





 Workin' out the "photobooth"!


 Gosh, there's a WHOLE LOTTA me in this blog entry… but I COULD NOT resist taking a photo with THE BEST wedding planners in St. Louis. :)

  • Sara FoorFebruary 23, 2010 - 12:44 am

    It looks like the rings were shot on something rusty, but it looks so colorful

    Song “living on a prayer”…that’s my guess anyway!ReplyCancel

  • JessicaFebruary 23, 2010 - 12:45 am

  • Angi DavisFebruary 23, 2010 - 1:37 am

  • LauraFebruary 23, 2010 - 5:44 am

    My original guess was Sweet Caroline but I’ll toss in “Life Is A Highway” just for kicks…..

    Love the shot of the photog relative…

    Awesomeness, as always! Big love.ReplyCancel

  • MombaFebruary 23, 2010 - 6:08 am

    Hey Bobbi and Mikey,

    WOW…. I am in awe. The famous St Louis Arch (AKA Arch to the Midwest) photo has to be the best ever. Christine looked absolutely beautiful. I too love her details. Great job you two.

    Momba loves you.ReplyCancel

  • Tara ParkerFebruary 23, 2010 - 7:27 am

    Your images are AMAZING and I am such a huge fan of your work! My guess for the song is a wedding favorite… “Shout”…. in particular, I think that it might be the part where it says “Now WAIIIIIIIIIIT a minute!” Haha! This is a fun game! :) ReplyCancel

  • ClaryFebruary 23, 2010 - 8:00 am

    Awesome!! Everything, Top to bottom, B&G to bbmk, STL to Steph n’ Brit. Awesome!ReplyCancel

  • christineFebruary 23, 2010 - 8:57 am

  • gailFebruary 23, 2010 - 8:58 am

    That arch shot needs a spot on the B&M studio wall!!!! And that ring shot? Well, I’m biased too, but if I could do it again, I htink I’d fall for something like that myself!ReplyCancel

  • meaganFebruary 23, 2010 - 9:26 am

    (though probabaly not as often as christine) I was furiously checking all the time waiting for the blog, and of course it doesn’t disappoint! ah-MAZ-ing!!! I can’t say enough about how much fun bobbi+mike were, how many times I have since gushed about you guys (to even random strangers), and how ridiculously incredible the pics are! much love!ReplyCancel

  • HannahFebruary 23, 2010 - 9:30 am

    I’m guessing Bon Jovi ” Livin on a Prayer”ReplyCancel

  • Lynn@ C+LFebruary 23, 2010 - 9:59 am

  • Hannah TaylorFebruary 23, 2010 - 10:37 am

  • ErinFebruary 23, 2010 - 10:43 am

    I LOOOOOOOOVE this set. The shots by the steps – to die for. And that shot with the arch – UNREAL.

    I’m guessing – “hooked on a feeling”… not sure if that’s the real title or not. But I can just see them singing “iiiiiiiiiiii, i’m hooked on a feeling, high on believing, that you’re in love with meeeeeeee” :-) ReplyCancel

  • CaseyFebruary 23, 2010 - 10:44 am

    Gorgeous as always!! My guess is I’ve got friends in low places!ReplyCancel

  • BrieFebruary 23, 2010 - 10:45 am

    Bobbi+Mike=awesome. Seriously, that arch shot and the b&w one of her on the stairs will definitely be featured in a magazine in the near future. I can just feeeeeeel it! Excellent as always!!!!!!!!ReplyCancel

  • Amy (Smith)February 23, 2010 - 10:47 am

    First of all my guess is Journey, “Don’t stop believing”

  • Andrea MurphyFebruary 23, 2010 - 12:29 pm

  • jess@studio3zFebruary 23, 2010 - 12:41 pm

    seriously that arch shot is like the ultimate bomb bomb rap song of wedding portraits!!! I love her blingy shoes, and her table details were delicious!! beautiful couple and wedding. :) ReplyCancel

  • AlisonFebruary 23, 2010 - 1:02 pm

    The arch shot is absolutely stunning! No shot of the “nacho.cheese.fountain”? Lol Beautiful job and I am loving the input from the bride and groom!!ReplyCancel

  • Nikki WelchFebruary 23, 2010 - 1:24 pm

    These are amazing! Incredible work, you guys.ReplyCancel

  • jessFebruary 23, 2010 - 1:41 pm

    Great as per the usual, is it a fence? Also, it’s obvious to me by the way that you actually photograph the shoes that you love shoes, doesn’t mean you have to wear them. I think shoes are awesome! There are so many styles and colors sometimes I buy what seems like ugly shoes and get the most compliments because until you pair them with something you don’t know what they will be :) ReplyCancel

  • PamelaFebruary 23, 2010 - 3:17 pm

    pure LOVE! once again! and yes, steph and brit totally rockReplyCancel

  • meganFebruary 23, 2010 - 5:02 pm

  • Angel CanaryFebruary 23, 2010 - 6:05 pm

    FAB per usual! Don’t you love it when a bride puts that much thought and emotion, or energy as you stated, into their wedding details! Great job! ;) ReplyCancel

  • BritFebruary 23, 2010 - 8:06 pm

    For all obvious reasons I love this post, and since I was there, I won’t say what song!

    You two did an awesome job! Gorgeous detail shots, and love the Arch shots!!ReplyCancel

  • LaurenFebruary 23, 2010 - 8:26 pm

  • SandyFebruary 25, 2010 - 7:42 pm

    What a fun looking wedding!! My favorite shot is the one where you are lying down in front of all those men. ahaha How did I never think to put nacho cheese in one of those things? Now that’s a fountain worth having. Great job!ReplyCancel

  • LeandraMarch 1, 2010 - 1:49 pm

    How did I miss this blog post until now? That ring shot is AMAZING! I love the colors! The shoes are perfection too. And, of course, all of your weddings make it look like everyone there is having THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES! (And with the great couples you photograph, maybe they are!) :) ReplyCancel
