Olivia and Jay met at a 4th of July party and (yes, I’ll say it) sparks flew! (told ya). Anyway, the two carried on a long distance relationship with Jay in military training and Olivia in town. They were officially wed earlier this year and moved to South Dakota to begin their lives together. They decided to come back to Evansville to have a big wedding and reception for their family and friends in November and it was a stunner. Olivia wore one of the most beautiful dresses I’ve seen all year and Jay brought his pride and joy El Camino to the church for some fun photos with the guys and girls. It was a chilly day, for sure, but we kept the energy going for some fast paced photos before heading to the reception. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Foster!
A chilly November day didn’t stand a chance with these two, their energy and fun-loving attitude made for a great engagement session. Lots of giggling and smiling, makes my job pretty easy! We picked a few key spots in downtown Evansville, IN, including the exterior of the church they will be married in! I’m looking forward to photographing their wedding next September. Enjoy my favorites:
Blue Heron Winery was the breathtaking backdrop for Glenda and Bots’ wedding day. The winery sits on a bluff overlooking the Ohio River and includes a Celtic cross carved in situ, where the ceremony took place. This couple are two fantastic people and they really stole my heart with their amazing love for each other. Their children, family and friends joined them in the celebration on the grounds of the winery. There was music by the family band, heartfelt toasts made by their children and the Blue Heron wine was flowing (it’s really good stuff!) Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Marlin!
“We wanted a photographer that was flexible, laid-back,and absolutely amazing at their job. Someone youthful and willing to photograph our visions. We wanted pictures taken that were true to us, that looked like us at our absolute best but with our style. We also wanted someone at a fair price who gave us everything we needed like a DVD with the printing rights. We found that with Jeanne at Equinox Photography. She was funny, talented, and had literally been taking pictures since before my husband and I were born. She’s had years to perfect people’s most treasured moments.
She went out of her way to do our engagement pictures at West Baden Hotel. We had a starlet meets Mr. Right vintage themed engagement shoot and a Great Gatsby winter wonderland wedding. She nailed the themes. We started a monthly payment plan 15 months before our wedding so we could afford to plan it. Her flexibility gave us breathing room for booking and paying for other things.
We had a blast taking our pictures because she was just in the right places at all the right times. We talked, laughed, danced and she got every picture perfect. There is no one I had more trust in than my photographer during the wedding planning. She’s fast too. Our pictures were ready within a few weeks. There’s no better conversation starter than when people see our pictures. You just look at them and can feel every emotion we felt at that time. We never realized how much of a fairy tale we lived until we saw our engagement and wedding pictures. Just out of this world.”
–Jennifer and Ryan
“Choosing a photographer was one of our easiest wedding decisions. Jeannie provided a professional consultation that put us both at ease, and it was easy to see that our needs and her photography style were a perfect match. Wedding photos are in many ways priceless, capturing moments that become memories of a beautiful day with family and friends. Jeannie captured moments that we will treasure forever.”
–Andrea and Ian
“Our experience with Equinox Photography has been great! Jeannie is such a great photographer and such a pleasure to work with. She captured wonderful moments, smiles, and laughs between us, our bridal party, family, and friends. I love looking back at our engagement and wedding pictures and just reliving the moment. She was very flexible and laid back with any requests we had.”
–Stephani and Josh
“Jeannie Worley with Equinox Photography took the best wedding photos that I had ever seen. My bias aside, Jeannie had an extraordinary knack for taking perfect candid shots as well as a talent for arranged ones. She was a consummate professional, creating a demanding timeline for herself that she promptly met. I can’t imagine our wedding without Jeannie’s pictures, as they will certainly help us remember our special day for years to come.”
–Lauren and Aaron
“Jeannie is a fantastic photographer! The pictures I received of my wedding were stunning. I felt butterflies when I saw my pictures for the first time because it felt like I had hit a replay button. She is very creative and has a great personality which makes her the perfect choice for any special event. I am very glad I chose Equinox Photography!”

A Practical Wedding is a popular blog aimed at brides to be. It’s full of great advice and beautiful photos. I am honored to have my wedding photos featured in Anne and Pramode’s article–that they wrote in their own words!–about how they planned their stunning outdoor wedding. It was eye opening to see what my clients go through to plan their special day, the do’s and don’ts, how they came to certain decisions, etc. Enjoy the link to the article below.
What better place to have your wedding but your childhood home? The place you grew up and daydreamed about your future? That’s just what Courtney did when she married James Drew. Her parent’s home and surrounding property made the perfect backdrop for this picturesque celebration, loaded with amazing detail after amazing detail. After a sweetly emotional first look, the couple exchanged vows with Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke officiating. After their guests showered them with confetti, they kicked off a fun-filled reception with handmade pizzas, a sno-cone stand and a personalized glass for each guest. Popular local DJ Randy Weber kept the tunes spinning for the dance floor and James’ Best Woman (Yes! he had Best Woman!) played guitar and sang a romantic tune especially for them. I had a great time photographing this wedding, it was a photographer’s delight from the happy couple in love to the fun little wedding favors. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Drew!
Country fun and cowboy boots on every member of the wedding party! The beautiful ceremony was held at the historic Double Log Cabin in New Harmony, IN. This couple had some amazing chemistry and were a joy to photograph. So much love! The reception was at the Posey County 4H Center where Rachel and Jeremy’s first dance brought the house down. These two have got the moves!
Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Will! Thanks for allowing me to be part of your day.
Casey and Joe were married on a warm, sunny day at the Vanderburgh 4H Center. It was a beautiful outdoor ceremony well attended by family and friends. Casey’s son Evan and her dog Petey served as adorable ring bearers. The wedding party was a real hoot! What a great group of fun, loving people who were up for anything when it was photo time. The reception was at The Holiday Inn ballroom in Evansville. The colorful decor and special touches were carefully chosen by Casey and Joe to reflect their hobbies and important moments in their relationship. After the special first dance and parent dances, Walter of Songbird Entertainment opened up the dancefloor to the guests who partied the night away!
…what more can I say, now that you’ve seen these photos of these wonderful people? Anne and Pramode had a day of love and perfection as they wed on Anne’s family farm. Every stunning detail, the decor, the emotional wedding vows, the exuberant family and friends, dancing under the colorful lights in the party tent–I’m telling you, what a day! I am honored and thrilled that I was chosen to document such a charmed event. All the best to the new Mr. and Mrs. Chiruvolu!
Stephani and Josh’s wedding day was fun and action packed from start to finish! The two exchanged vows to a full house of family and friends. Afterwards, we stopped by the city hall lawn for some fun photos with the wedding party, we had to dodge some raindrops, but we got ‘em! Next, drinks and photos at The Moose Lodge–a Tell City wedding day tradition! The Schergens Center was the backdrop for a beautifully decorated and rocking reception. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Horton! Thanks for choosing Equinox Photography as your wedding photographers.
