We document every moment of your wedding day in timeless photographs.
You're getting married!
As a former bride, I remember all of the anticipation, excitement, and stresses of planning my wedding day, choosing the dress, the venue, and inviting my friends and family to celebrate with me and my future husband. We were dreaming about our perfect wedding day and the marriage we would build together. When our wedding day finally came it was even more beautiful than I imagined it could be and it went by in a whirlwind. At the end of your wedding day, when the cake has been cut and the dress has been hung your photographs will be what you have to look back on from is sure to be the best day of your life. You deserve to be able to enjoy your wedding day as stress-free as possible with beautiful memories that last forever.
Now, not only am I married to my husband, but we work together too! We are Brian and Elisha Kaldahl, a husband and wife wedding photography team in Indianapolis, Indiana. Because we care so much about creating the best possible experience for our clients, we do things a little differently than most wedding photographers, we only capture weddings and engagements. Our philosophy is, "Do one thing and do it crazy well." We don't shoot, family photos, newborns, seniors, or anything else. We strive to be the absolute best at wedding photography because these moments cannot be recreated and they deserve to be preserved forever.
You will be able to relax knowing that we are creating our best work, getting every shot possible, and fully and completely telling the story of your wedding day, including those moments you may not even see while you’re busy getting married.
Because we care so much about documenting your wedding day, we include a second shooter in every wedding collection ensuring that we don't miss a moment of your big beautiful day. We know how important your wedding day is and we consider it a privilege to be able to be a part of your event as you begin your journey into the adventure of marriage.

My cameras have dual memory card slots, meaning that on your wedding day I am making a copy of every image I capture on two memory cards. When I leave your wedding I physically secure those memory cards. Before I go to bed I have downloaded the images from those memory cards onto two external hard drives and uploaded them into a photo management software and Lightroom. Additionally, I do not write over the memory cards from your wedding day until I have delivered your gallery to you.
If you count the total number of backups, I have five copies of every image from your wedding day. I promise you that I will protect your wedding photos as if they are my own.
I will send out a detailed questionnaire two months prior to your wedding date which will help me to build your photography timeline so that you can be certain that you will have enough coverage for your best day ever.
The answer is yes, with this caveat, remember that you are looking at my technical skills and coverage as a photographer on a wedding day another bride has likely been envisioning since she was twelve. She will likely have chosen a different dress and decor than you will. There will be moments included in her gallery that mean something to her but you might think are silly. She may choose to have fewer portraits than you would like. You can’t compare any other wedding day to the day you are imagining.
I implore you to ask yourself when looking at another couple's gallery of photos, do I like the lighting and style of the photographer?
I have gone back to my roots and started capturing some of your wedding day (up to one roll of film) with my Olympus OM2, a 35mm SLR camera.
Yes, I am happy to see what you are envisioning for your wedding photos. Please tell me what it is that you love about the images you have pinned.
