I just happened to be throwing myself a pity party. I had locked myself in my dorm room and was watching SOAP on repeat, intent on never coming out. You see, I had recently been broken up with and I thought the world was coming to an end. Wallowing in self pity, I couldn't find my way out of the darkness that I was in. It's a good thing I was in college, and I had friends good enough to barge in the room (Holler, Steph!), tell me to get dressed, and wisk me away to a party at Purdue! I was completely hesitant, but knew I needed to do something to get out of my funk, so even though it was almost 10 PM (WHAT?? I've always been an early in bed type of person!), I got dressed and decided to go.

                                                    

This little 1 hour road trip away from Indy, was life changing to say the least (no really, to a 20 year old...it was!)! It was my first time merging onto a highway, my first time driving through a drive-thru window, and my first time going to a frat party! Whew...my world was a changing! Lol.  We had a blast that night talking to and meeting new people and even dancing some (No, I didn't get drunk, as I didn't drink at the time! - but who needed it! I was on an obvious high after merging onto I-65! haha) We drove home at about 2 AM, and as we pulled into the parking lot, Norah Jones "Don't know why" came on the radio and ended the perfect evening away from my wallowing! 

I tell you this story because this month's selfie I did an in-camera Double Exposure. I've never done this before but have always been intrigued by it, soo I decided it was high time I learn it! It wasn't just me, but also my cat, Remmi who starred in the pictures...sometimes I think just me by myself is a tad boring, so why not spice it up with a cat, right?!?

Anywho, being a double exposure, it just made me think of how it's never too late to reinvent yourself. It's never to late to be more than one thing, and it's never to late to decide to change things if this life isn't going the way you wanted...You can't let one event in your life define you, you have to move on and remind yourself that you are the one who decides what your future will look like! And if you can't do that...go to a party with your friends - it works, trust me!  -Abby

She had SO MUCH ENERGY!!! It was good though, I needed the workout :)  I was so excited to be photographing this family, because I went to high school with Cynthia! I love seeing her in her role as a mom and think she's doing such a great job with that sweet daughter of hers! Enjoy these photos, and the love that shines through them!

A story in selfies // February http://gallery.abbyhackerphotography.com/blog/2014/3/a-story-in-selfless---february I know I am late, but I made a resolution at the beginning of the year to do at least 1 selfie a month. This may seem like an odd thing to do, but here are my reasons behind it:

1. Push myself creatively. Yes, this first month is pretty tame, but I plan on trying to think up new ideas and see what I can come up with each month! 

2. Be more vulnerable with clients and anyone who reads my blogs. I want you all to know me and to really get a sense of who I am. I think it will be fun sharing parts of myself with you all each month! I will tell a story of some sort to go along with each selfie! 

3. Having a goal and meeting it. I have tried to do the 365 day AND the 52 week photo challenges and never kept up with it - I figure I should be able to keep up with this one - YES, I am already behind, but I plan on catching up and accomplishing my 12 selflies before 2015!

Now, onto the selfies and my story of the month! 

Indianapolis PhotographerIndianapolis PhotographerIndianapolis Photographer

When I was little I remember my parents getting us dressed to go out in the snow and play. Often times I was the last to be ready since I was the youngest and probably also the slowest! Now, I don't know about you guys, but we had a nice little play set as children - one with a slide. That slide was the key ingredient of a snow day at home…if we were first to get ready and go out, we could be the first to clear the snow off the slide…with our butts…sliding down it! I don't know WHAT it was about being the first one to do that, but it used to drive me insane when my sisters would get to go out and clear the slide first. In my mind, it meant that they had more fun than me, and nobody wants to start off their snow day like that! 

Indianapolis PhotographerIndianapolis PhotographerIndianapolis Photographer

Consequently, I was often left with the next best thing…the swing, or even so, the next next best thing….just eating snow, hiding around a corner (I had to hide from my parents, who told me not to eat snow, but it was just so good!) And because of this, my poor mother was left with the task of rotating turns to make things fair, and listening to her 3 lovely children whine about who went first last time!

You may be asking yourself what in the heck does this have to do with anything?! I'm not 100% sure, but when I walked outside to do these pictures, I backed up close to this evergreen out in my yard, took off my coat, and a bird got spooked and flew away…and then another bird, and another. Yes, the snow from the branches absolutely fell off, right on my head and on my back! And while I couldn't believe that had just happened to me, it took me back to those moments when I was younger…I got the first snow this time, even if it was just off of an evergreen tree, from a bird…I had the most fun that day, and damn it, it was worth it!

Northwest Indiana Family Photographer // Mackenzie http://gallery.abbyhackerphotography.com/blog/2014/2/northwest-indiana-family-photographer---mackenzie Everyone! I want you to meet a very special friend of mine! Her name is Mackenzie and this is a "day in the life" of a 2 year old! 

This is where she was giving me her fake smile and still pretty unsure of who I was:

This is where she warmed up to me and said "I don't care who you are, I'm having fun with my bubbles!" (Ok, not really what she SAID, but what I think is going through her mind!)

Then she was like "Hey Abby! Let's have a tea party!"

Indianapolis Proposal Photographer // Stephanie and Jeff http://gallery.abbyhackerphotography.com/blog/2014/2/indianapolis-secret-proposal-photographer---stephanie-and-jeff Jeff contacted me over the summer about 2 weeks before he was about to propose to his girlfriend, Stephanie, and asked if I would be interested in photographing their proposal. Are you kidding me?! This is the stuff I live for! Being able to provide people with those kinds of memories never gets old! So I met up with Jeff about a week before and walked the canal in downtown Indianapolis, to find the perfect place to propose. We had the place all picked out and I got there about 20 minutes before they would so I could get in my spot and be ready (might I note that I was also really nervous...I don't know why, it's not like I was proposing to anyone! LOL). I saw Jeff and Stephanie walking towards me on the canal and WAY before he was supposed to, Jeff got down on one knee and asked Stephanie to be his wife :)  Now, I only let you in on this little secret that it was way before he was supposed to because: 

1. I still got the shot (whew!)

2. It just illustrates how ready Jeff was to ask Stephanie to be his wife. I just think it's so cute that he couldn't wait until the planned spot!

So I met up with them after the proposal, both still a little shaky (for anyone who hasn't been proposed to before...it's like an out of body experience - the best kind, of course!) and did a few quick pictures before they were whisked off to have dinner with their families and celebrate! I am so excited for their future together - it's going to be a bright one! Thank you SO much for letting me be a part of this beautiful moment in your lives!

Fly with Me // Klein Curaçao http://gallery.abbyhackerphotography.com/blog/2014/2/fly-with-me---klein-curaco As you know, we went to Curaçao for our honeymoon and LOVED every second of it! Being that the weather is the way that it is right now, I think I look back on that trip even more fondly, and certainly wish that we could be back there right now! 

As I mentioned in the last blog about Curaçao we took a trip to an island called Klein Curaçao for a full day. It was such a great trip…taken by catamaran, hanging out on the beach,  checking out an abandoned (yet still working) lighthouse, exploring the 4 shipwrecks on the island, swimming with turtles, eating delicious food that the crew made for us (the crew, by the way spoke 4 languages!), and seeing some snakes and octopus while snorkeling! It sure was a great trip that I can't recommend enough!

Wooster, Ohio Wedding Photographer - Quailcrest Farm Wedding // Avan & Dustin http://gallery.abbyhackerphotography.com/blog/2014/1/wooster-ohio-wedding-photographer---qualcrest-farm-wedding---avan-dustin From the moment I looked up this venue on the internet, I knew this would be a beautiful wedding! Quailcrest Farms is kind of in the middle of nowhere in Ohio, but so worth the drive!  The location was gorgeous...amazing grounds for tons of places to take pictures, and a beautiful couple to take pictures of!  Avan looked incredible and the way that Dustin looked at her was how every bride wants their groom to look at them!  

It was a crazy sunny day (as in, not a cloud in the sky type day...except for those little ones that don't ever cover the sun!), but the weather was perfect! For their first dance as husband and wife, Avan's father and brother sang (live!) , and it was just the sweetest...here's wishing you two a lifetime of happiness!

Destination Wedding Photographer: Kentucky Farm Wedding Photographer // Kena and Eric http://gallery.abbyhackerphotography.com/blog/2014/1/kentucky-farm-wedding-photographer---kena-and-eric To begin to describe this wedding is so hard for me! There was so much beauty and so much love - amazing floral arrangements every way you turned by Jewlies, gorgeous DIY table adornments that were pieces from family and friends, a handmade arch made by her father (it ended up raining and they didn't get married under it, but it was INSANELY gorgeous!), and a ring blessing ceremony by their closest family and friends. It was a day to remember! Sure, things didn't go exactly as planned, but it was so gorgeous and I can't believe this all came together in a short 4 months! 

Also, keep a look out for the awesome father daughter dance - They danced to Funky Cold Medina by Tone Loc and it was hilarious! 

Kena & Eric, you bring happiness to any room you are in! Thank you SO so much for letting me capture your story, it sure was a beautiful one!  Here's to a lifetime of happiness and great memories! 


One of me with the fabulous bride!

Tips on planning your wedding: Saving money http://gallery.abbyhackerphotography.com/blog/2014/1/tips-on-planning-your-wedding-saving-money So, I threw together my wedding in just 3 months and after that I feel like I could run an entire site on what to do for weddings! But because I'm not going to do that, I thought I'd write a few blog posts. This first one is how to save money on your wedding! 

1. Figure out early on what is important to you and make sure you set the money aside for just that. For me the #1 most important thing to me was wedding photography and video. Obviously this can be expensive, but for me I knew it was one of the only things that would last and help me to remember the day as it happened. So I made sure that I got a good photographer and videographer! I think the #2 priority (after venue, of course!) was dessert…LOVE me some dessert! 

2. Have your wedding on any day of the week other than Saturday! The cost of our wedding venue was cut in half because we had it on a Friday. If you have over 6 months planning your wedding, I really recommend doing a Friday (or any day other than Saturday) wedding - it's enough time for family and friends to get off work if they really want to be there. Honestly, it didn't even feel like a Friday wedding to me…it felt like a Saturday, and we had a GREAT turn out, even for just having 3 months notice! 

3. ASK. This might seem really obvious but if you want a discount on something, just ask for it! Sure most of the time they will say no, but sometimes they say yes and it will save you money! Early on, I had asked a photographer that I had been following for YEARS if they were available to shoot my wedding - I didn't have enough money to pay what they normally charge, but told them what I could pay…they said they would totally do it since I had been a fan of theirs for so long…how did they know? I commented on their statuses and blog often. It really does pay off! In the end we couldn't work it out because they had a wedding to shoot the next day and they couldn't find a red eye flight out after my wedding - but just knowing that people are willing to compromise was huge! I know that a lot of people will not budge on prices, but it's always worth asking!

4. Fake flower centerpieces, people! I ordered $250 worth of fake flowers…I ordered from afloral.com for 14 tables centerpieces! I put them in ball jar type jars, and I think they looked pretty fabulous! I did have real flowers for the whole bridal party though! (I've also heard that grocery stores like Kroger and Costco are doing wedding flowers now…they cost probably a 1/4 of the cost as florists do!)  We also made the table numbers out of homemade confetti, which probably cost us about $4 total….sure it took a LOT of time, but saved us money!  If I had done real centerpieces it would have cost me over $1,000…glad I didn't do that! Most people don't remember the centerpieces from your wedding, so I don't think it needs to be that big of a cost!

5. D I Y ….I can't say enough how much DIY really helped with how our wedding look turned out! I had specific items that I wanted and I put together a list and my family and friends would help and I would just do as much as I could when I had the time! I also purchased a font that I loved for about $20 and made signs for the bar, guestbook, lantern send off, dessert tables, etc. So for $20 I had a different font than anyone else and I designed the signs so there was a theme throughout the wedding. I printed these on thicker paper myself, probably saving myself a couple hundred instead of having someone design them and print them for us! We also had a homemade LOVE Marquee, a paint chip heart,  and so many other personal touches that I just truly loved! 

6. Hair and Make up: Man…this was a toughie for me for more than 1 reason. I had someone lined up early on (2 months out) for my hair and make up. I did a trial run, which cost me $60. Then they sent me the invoice to reserve the date. There were many costs that weren't told to me up front and it included sales tax. Because I do photography I know that you don't charge sales tax on a service, but only something tangible…so I tried to get that sorted out and it didn't work, so I had to find someone else. This was 3 weeks before my wedding when all this came about. I found someone else, went to the trial with her 2 weeks before my wedding and I looked AWFUL. Haha…just terrible…so there went another $60 for another trial and I still had no one to do my hair and make up. At this point I was stuck paying a premium for everything, and didn't have time to do another trial. Lesson: Get recommendations from friends, family, Facebook people - ANYONE…and be sure to do a trial. Most good make up and hair people will do a free trial if you hire them, so just keep that in mind!

7. See if you can bring in your own cakeif they say it has to come from an approved vendor, ask them if Costco is ok. Sure, we had a whole dessert bar, but we also had a small 6 inch cake for us to cut and then 2 sheet cakes from Costco! Guess how much a sheet cake costs from there? $17….yup. If I went with a local bakery it would have cost me a couple hundred dollars to have that much cake! #BOOYAH!

Ok - I think this is enough tips for the day! :) I hope you enjoyed them…share this with anyone getting married and don't forget to contact me if you're looking for a wedding photographer or if I can answer any other burning questions for you!  -Abby

Indianapolis Wedding Photographer // Indiana Landmarks Center Wedding - Liz & James http://gallery.abbyhackerphotography.com/blog/2013/12/indianapolis-wedding-photographer---liz-james---indiana-landmarks-center It was a beautiful, end-of-September day. The weather was just about perfect, there was hardly a cloud in the sunny sky, and I was shooting a fabulous wedding at the Indiana Landmarks Center! The couple: James and Liz. They currently live in Seattle, but came back to their home town to get their marriage on! They had one of the most unique combinations of flower colors I have ever seen - seriously beautiful! Pair it with the backdrop of the venue and it doesn't get much better than that!

Try not to drool when looking at pictures of this gorgeous wedding and happy couple! (Also - you will see a picture of a live band at the receptionif you are thinking about booking a live band for your wedding or ANY event, I HIGHLY recommend MY YELLOW RICKSHAW. They = most amazing live band you can imagine. You're welcome for that tip!)

Indianapolis Photographer // Ballerina - revisited http://gallery.abbyhackerphotography.com/blog/2013/12/indianapolis-photographer---ballerina---revisited It's Throw Back Thursday AND it's been 2 whole years since I asked my (very understanding) sister to dress up in a ballerina outfit and head to an abandoned church with me. She obliged nicely, and we headed out to explore and get some pictures of an image that had been in my head for a few months! The juxtaposition was just what I had imagined and I loved the images! I would like to go back again and do it one more time with the knowledge I have of photography today, but if I never make it back for a reshoot, I will be very happy and content with these images! 

Enjoy my [revisited] labor of love!

Fly with me -- Curaçao (Honeymoon) http://gallery.abbyhackerphotography.com/blog/2013/12/fly-with-me----curacao-honeymoon When we were trying to pick out where to honeymoon it was a HARD choice, but eventually we decided we wanted somewhere relaxing, warm and with a European feel! Curaçao has been on our list for quite some time so the choice was obvious! 

After about 6 hours of flying we arrived at our destination, where we would enjoy our new married life for 9 days in paradise! The air was warm, a little humid and the skies were blue. We grabbed a taxi and took off towards our hotel (Avila Hotel - which we highly recommend!!) Seeing the city of Willemstad for the first time, I will never forget. The beautiful and colorful buildings that are along the water are something I'd been waiting to see for a long time! 

Once we arrived, we quickly made our hotel our home by popping some (complimentary) bubbly and checking out everything our hotel had to offer! We watched our first sunset on the beach and marveled at how blue the water was, with all the little crabs playing around, and knew we'd love our stay in Curaçao! And that we did - we rented a car and saw the west side of the island, visited 5 different beaches, swam with our first turtle and got sunburned from apparent lack of sunscreen application. We saw stray chickens and (adorable) wild cats, crazy birds and tons of lizards, we snorkeled (or snorked as we came to call it!) whenever we could and saw tons and tons of amazing fish and ocean life! We collected glass from the beach and coral from the ocean. 

We walked to Willemstad no less than 5 times and did some shopping, went to the open food market and bought a fresh papaya which tasted like sweet honey (it was my first one!) and we laid on the sand and enjoyed our time together. Curaçao will always hold a special place in our hearts, and it's no wonder why! Please enjoy these pictures from our trip - there will be 1 more post at a later date about Curaçao, about when we went to Klein Curaçao for a day trip!

FOOD

Of course I had to end the blog with some (really awfully taken) pictures of our food at my favorite restaurant there! Rozendaels Restaurant had the most amazing dish called Keshi Yena - a Dutch specialty. It's the one on the left, and to me it tastes like pulled chicken with raisins (seriously - never would have considered that combo) covered in some sort of delicious cheese! Wash it down with a nice Polar Beer and it's the perfect meal! Oh man, I dream about this dish and wish I could make it myself!

Indiana Family Photographer // 2nd Birthday http://gallery.abbyhackerphotography.com/blog/2013/12/indiana-family-photographer---2nd-birthday Ah to be 2 again, to see through the eyes of a child where playing with a barn by Fisher Price can fill you with glee, cartoons, like bubble guppies, can mesmerize you for hours on end and being spun around in the air or a wagon is the best thing EVER.  The word "No" makes you sad when anyone says it to you, you find emptying drawers amazing, and running around like you haven't been going nonstop, since you woke up 4 hours ago, isn't even tiring (except for the adults chasing after you)! You still don't have a ton of hair (really, what 2 year old does?), but what you do have is cute and curly, your clothes are super fashionable, and you tend to walk and bump into thingsespecially tables. The most important person to you is your mom and your smile can make the whole room light up.  Yes, this little 2 year old may be ornery, but she sure knows how to wrap everyone around her little finger…including me!

November: Top Instagram Images http://gallery.abbyhackerphotography.com/blog/2013/12/november-top-instagram-images Images #1 this month was an image of the circle with the lights freshly put up on the monument! a whopping 20 people liked this image, and I can see why...it helps get you in the Christmas Spirit! 

Image # 2 this month I took while we were on our way up North to visit family for a Faux Thanksgiving weekend! These are the (sometimes creepy) windmills around the Lafayette area! 

Image #3 was taken on a beautiful November day while I was on my lunch on a walk! The sun hit the building just right and I was able to get a little sunburst and building reflections! (This one was my personal favorite of the month!)

What's your favorite image of the three featured? -Abby
