What was the most memorable moment of your day?

Jon & Kelsey:  First Look

 Any advice for future bride/grooms?

Kelsey:  Hire the best vendors in town and plan, plan, plan. The combination of a winning team and your planning will result in a no-stress, lovely wedding. On your big day, take the time to love your people and truly enjoy the day! 

Jon: Soak it all in. The day will rush by. Make sure you stop, breathe, and smile at the thought that your wedding day is, in fact, finally here.  

Funniest memory from your wedding day?

Kelsey:  My funniest moment during our day was dancing with my favorite #weathermanMike to All About That Bass. Halfway through the jam, Mike did the splits and accidentally ripped his pants through the crotch (see photo below). During our reception, Bobbi+Mike were officially deemed the most fun photographers in all the land–hire them!

Jon: Ben standing in for a romantic slow dance was the best.   

If you could do it all over, would you change anything?

Jon & Kelsey:  Absolutely not!  

Where did you go on your honeymoon?

Bloomington? Yay, grad school…But seriously, we’re headed to Jamaica over New Year’s.

Your eyes are not deceiving you… YES… I’m CUTTING the dress! AHHHHH!!!! I swear to you… she asked me to do it! AHHHHH!!!!37_bobbimike_laurelhall_kjw14Mike, you have a cute butt.;)38_bobbimike_laurelhall_kjw14#bestfriend_ben (the videographer) and I doin’ what we do.

Indianapolis, Ind.

kim+randy  ::  Springfield, Ill.  ::  married 14 years

How they met, as told by Kim  :: We met when we were both working for the Speaker of the Illinois House of Representatives. We were friends first, started dating and now here we are!

Kim ::  hometown – Winchester, Ill.  ::  Photographer  ::  five words – loyal, funny, thoughtful, creative, independent

Randy  ::  hometown – Carlyle, Ill.  ::  Bureau Chief  ::  five words – supportive, fun, organized, intellectual, helpful

Eli  ::  11 years old  ::  five words – friendly, outgoing, analytical, poised, adventurous

Owen  ::  8 years old  ::  five words – caring, charismatic, determined, competitive, inquisitive

Your perfect Saturday  ::  When I think of a perfect day, I think of days when it’s either just the four of us or days we are with family (mine or Randy’s). It involves being outside playing some sort of game(s) and would also involve cooking/food. It may end with a movie and popcorn and the area I’m sitting filled with three people instead of one!


Owen insisted that our sweet MurphyMo come along for the session… we here at bbmk inc aim to please!;)LOOK… THEY’RE TWINS!!!!bobbi+mike



Kim and Randy, thanks for making the trip to Indianapolis for us.:)

Hi friends!:DRemember this duo? We photographed their wedding over six years ago. WHAAAAAAT?! It seriously does NOT feel like that long ago… am I crazy here or what?! They decided they needed an updated portrait session… a “just because.” Mike’s favorites:?:
01_familyphotographyindianapolis_CA14Their entire session was shot within walking distance of their house.
02_familyphotographyindianapolis_CA14I have a bit of an obsession with straight lines and symmetry… but when a barn is literally leaning… I have to just lettttt itttttt gooooo….;)
05_familyphotographyindianapolis_CA14My view on the left. Mike’s on the right.:)04_familyphotographyindianapolis_CA14I’m obsessed with this image.03_familyphotographyindianapolis_CA14The light that evening was magical.06_familyphotographyindianapolis_CA14These two are my favorites:!:Many of you already know this but for those who don’t… I was named after Bob Dylan (thanks dad:))… so when I met Aaron in 2007 I immediately knew that we would forever be friends.  Side note: if you ever ask us to photograph your session at your house… there’s a prettttttty good chance I’ll take a photo of you on your front porch.:)My view on the left.
07_familyphotographyindianapolis_CA14Mike’s view. He was literally sitting on top of the jeep to get this… 08_familyphotographyindianapolis_CA14Luna and Chewy.09_familyphotographyindianapolis_CA14Photographing pups isn’t as easy as it looks. By the way, Laughs like Carly’s are what fill my world with rainbows and sunshine. If you know her, when you look at this photo you can hear it… am I right?! Those are my favorite kind of people.:)10_familyphotographyindianapolis_CA1411_familyphotographyindianapolis_CA14My view on the left… Mike’s on the right… 12_familyphotographyindianapolis_CA1413_familyphotographyindianapolis_CA14


Carmel, Ind.

Together  ::  11.5.04  •  Wedding  ::  6.1.08

How they met, as told by Carly   ::  We met in an intro to philosophy class. The very first day, Aaron sat in front of me and I swear I just knew. With the class nearing the end, I seized my moment and wrote an email to Aaron asking for help and “direction” with our final paper. We met up at the library and talked for literally 8 hours and were inseparable from that moment on. It was later revealed that Aaron had never written a paper that was more advanced than, “What I Want for Christmas”.:)

Carly ::  Account Manager / Photographer / Interior Designer  •  Hometown  ::  Cincinnati, Ohio  •   five words  ::  Vocal, super-inventive, driven, passionate and incredible 

Aaron  ::  High School Art Teacher / Painter  •  Hometown  ::  Lonesome Town (you’re soooo deep Aaron…)  •   five words  ::  HILARIOUS, caring, loyal, crazy talented and mine:)

Your perfect Saturday ::  Whether it’s antiquing, photography, working on our latest house project, playing music or painting the next masterpiece: we’re all about being creative.  We would then take our pups, Chewy & Luna on a walk around our neighborhood, hit up our favorite sushi place, and binge on some Netflix in front of the fireplace.  



 Much love friends!

06_bobbimike_Indianapolis_FAMK14LOVE!09_bobbimike_Indianapolis_FAMK14Thanks for having fun with us you guys.:D10_bobbimike_Indianapolis_FAMK14


Indianapolis, Ind.

tessa+brad  ::  Osgood, Ohio  ::  married 8 years  •  9.30.06

How they met, as told by Tessa  :: We met in high school. Brad was a year older than I was and our friends ran around together. We started dating when I was a sophomore and Brad was a junior. It was such the cliche high school couple, Brad a star football player and myself a cheerleader. But it worked!

Tessa ::  hometown – Osgood, Ohio.  ::  Photographer  ::  five words – beautiful, loving, caring, determined, intelligent

Brad  ::  hometown – Chickasaw, Ohio  ::  Production Manager  ::  five words – family-man, hard worker, dependable, loving & the biggest pick you will ever know (ANYONE is fair game!)

Reagan  ::  10 years old  ::  five words –  caring, social-butterfly, soft hearted, creative, & just sweet

Grant  ::  7 years old  ::  five words – sarcastic, momma’s boy, loves outdoors, athletic & funny

Your perfect Saturday  ::   Mommy not working, which doesn’t happen often.  We would spend the day together exploring.  We love to go to parks and seeing what we can find.  We all love Mexican food, so we would probably grab a bite to eat.  And then end the night visiting family.

    They are the cutest! I’m loving the variety – poses, locations, colors, and outfits! The fact that he is missing that tooth makes me love that little guy even more! I’ve been scrolling back and forth through this post. Every time I think I’ve picked a favorite, I change my mind to another one. They’re all perfect.ReplyCancel

  • KimNovember 4, 2014 - 2:51 pm

    So I may be a little biased as this sweet family in the photos are my brother, sister in law, and their sweet kiddos but I do love all the images!! I see a lot of Tessa’s (the woman in the photos) work but rarely ever do I get to see this loving couple in front of the camera.. So sweet!!ReplyCancel

  • KatieNovember 5, 2014 - 12:56 pm

    What a beautiful family! And so HAPPY! Perfect photos :) ReplyCancel

  • MollyNovember 7, 2014 - 1:05 am

    I sort of can’t pick of favorite—every last one is beautiful. The light in all of them is to die for, the colors and your processing always blow my mind. If you twisted my arm, I might narrow it down to the first black and white and that colorful wall, but really… they’re all fabulous. Great job, guys! xoReplyCancel

  • tashaNovember 10, 2014 - 2:10 pm

    LOVE!! I die for these!ReplyCancel
