Downtown Indianapolis Wedding

Morgan & Anthony’s wedding was classic in the best possible way. Blush dresses with neutral bouquets, classic navy suits, and a lace dress made for a timeless affair, and Regions Tower was the perfect backdrop. With cocktail hour overlooking the city at golden hour and a dance floor under the stars, you truly couldn’t have […]

Outdoor Wisconsin Spring Wedding

Abigail & Luke met at summer camp before dating long-distance for a few years, and I can’t help but resonate with their story as I met my own husband at camp before dating a few states apart.

Indianapolis Bike Engagement Session

I love asking my couples to plan a date for their engagement session, and I’ll just third wheel 🙂 When Leah & Matt mentioned that they love to ride their bikes in downtown Indianapolis, I’m pretty sure my eyes lit up. I love how these photos turned out, but even more than that, I love […]

The Wedding Veil Debate

I feel qualified to write on this subject because I have first hand experience with the wedding veil debate. In my case, my mom really encouraged me to wear a veil as she believes it is part of the bridal experience. I, on the other hand, wasn’t as convinced and had dreams of wearing a […]

As I set goals in this new year and dream about the future of Christa Hitchcock Photography, I began considering some of my bucket list venues.

Autumn Inspired Wedding Editorial

With little competition, my favorite season is fall. Yes, I love the heat of summer and the still, quiet snow of winter, but every year I get most excited when the air gets crisp and the leaves begin to change. I believe it’s when the world is at its most magical- full of color, life, […]

Indianapolis Barn At Bay Horse Inn Wedding | Lauren & Kraig

Last October I had the pleasure of second shooting for sweet Sami of Sami Renee Photography. With a busy summer schedule it’s not often that I get to second shoot for another photographer, but I always love the opportunity to 1) spend time with a great friend and 2) learn from another person’s shooting style!
