Indianapolis Wedding Photographer and Artist bio picture
  • Professional Wedding Photographer | ANGEL CANARY

    I am always honored when a bride and groom chooses me to document their wedding day. Capturing their moments, details and portraits on one of the happiest days of their lives gives me bragging rights - I do have the best job in the world. Just being surrounded by all of that love and joy is an emotion that cannot be described with words. I have been extraordinary blessed that I get paid to travel around the country capturing love with my camera. From Boston, to New York, to Chicago, to Texas and all the way to California and beyond - my clients live all across this great country.

    I have a gorgeous photography studio located close to downtown Indianapolis - full of natural light and a lot of simply lovely props.

    My Quote.

    "I am young enough to have fun & enjoy life, old enough to know life is too short to waste and not leave a mark in this world." Angel Canary

    "The moments of joy, love & beauty captured in a photograph will outlive our lifetime, but in it, we live on forever." Angel Canary

    The Skinny.

    I'm obsessed with Kate Spade (their crazy marketing gets me every time) - love all things fashion and dare I say, girly. Sephora receives half of my income but don't tell my husband. I am workaholic and coffee is my best friend. Ice cold bottled Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccino to be exact. I love my home gym and staying active. I have a craft room that I use more for client branding than anything - but if you ever need ribbon I likely have over 200 spools on hand. And Pinterest - okay, I'm not even going to admit how much I adore this site... I'm crazy eclectic - my objects of affections can be light and airy and pastel and equally bright bold color makes my heart skip a beat. This is fabulous for my line of work because I'm versatile, but horrible for my cute little mint blue Kate Spade pocket book with a bow on it as it really gets me in trouble when shopping, ha!

    The Story.

    I have been an artist (yes, I can paint and draw and have statewide awards for my art) and a photographer of some sort for most of my life. Alas, my teachers always kept most of my artwork to show future students, but the photos I took for the yearbook staff starting at age 10 will forever live on in print. I was educated as a child and all of my years in school, in gifted magnet schools that were specialized for children that were gifted as well as artistic. My teachers shaped my life and have made me what I have become today - and for that I owe them my life. Teachers carry a special place in my heart.

    I have captured hundreds of love stories over the years and I live, breathe and dream about weddings and photography. It's my passion.

    I like to say I get to play dress up with the girls in the studio, so I love to collect, design and sew various types of fashion clothing - not excluding adult sized tutus.

    I am blessed that I can share my love of art and photography with the world, and I am thankful that the world lets me.

liz and ryan // diy // after wedding shoot

Liz and Ryan are a bride and groom that I worked with for their wedding the prior summer to shooting this. We wanted to do something similar to a Rock the Dress and I wanted to incorporate some DIY things into the shoot. So this is proof brides to be, if I can do this all in less than 2 weeks you can!;)

I found everything I needed in one trip to Hobby Lobby, Big Lots and Goodwill, for less than $200 total.
I cut and hand sewed and painted every single thing – even the chairs and the tables and the veil. Everything except for the bouquet, which was simply flowers from the local floral shop. I had a ton of fun with this!!

For the fabric flowers that I made – I found some really nice, almost new sheets at the thrift store and washed and sanitized them. I cut them into strips of fabric and layered some with lace and pearls from Hobby Lobby. For the hanging lanterns, I cut square pieces of the sheets and hot glued them to paper lanterns I found from Big Lots.

The cake is pretty simple, a cake mix, two layers, a butter knife and icing.
The same process for the cupcakes really. I added the hot chocolate because it was winter.

All of the milk glass and all of the tables, etc. were all purchased from the thrift store and sanitized then painted.

Her “fur” is simply fabric from Hobby Lobby. ┬áThe love banner I made from burlap and ribbon and yarn.

 

A HUGE thank you goes to the fabulous Leah Handlon for styling Liz’s makeup.
