Mr & Mrs Geben – Notre Dame Basketball Wedding


I can’t believe we’ve made it the BIG DAY! There has been so much excitement leading up to Laura & Martinas’ wedding day! I couldn’t sleep the night before due to all the unique photo ideas I wanted to try! We had special permission to go inside the practice facility so my mind was raising with excitement!


Laura’s shoes were 5 inches tall… I don’t know she managed to stand and dance all day. I loved the shade of burgundy so much, I decided to use them in the ring shot!



Martinas’ awesome portraits inside the Joyce Center Men’s Basketball locker room. I decided to turn all the lights out and focus solely on him. The locker room was filled with the current players’ stuff so shooting his portraits this way, cut out all the distractions from the background but highlighted the Notre Dame!


Returning back to the Century Center, I wanted the same look for Laura’s portraits. When window light isn’t available or isn’t pretty, that’s when you get creative and give the images something extra!


Isn’t she gorgeous… like a movie star!!!

Ceremony time!!!

Paw of Peace!

Introducing Mr & Mrs Geben!

Cake time! When they sliced into the cake, the cake topper (bride and groom) feel off. lol That’s why they’re both laughing. hehe

First dance as man and wife!

Not a dry in town when dad gave his speech and then danced to “Butterfly kisses” with his beautiful daughter.

Martinas and his mom share a very heartfelt dance.

Party time!

Epic night shot… check! 😀

To Laura & Martinas – Thank you for allowing me to share, not only the day but the last year of your lives with me! Every day has been fun and memorable… from Nashville to Notre Dame! You both have so many wonderful things ahead and I can’t wait to see how you grow together as thee Power Couple. Love always – S

Rachel and Pete’s stunning black tie wedding was the stuff of dreams. The live band combined with the Palais Royale’s grand ballroom, made you feel like you were stepping back in time to the roaring 20’s.
