Wedding Photographer in Michiana

Hi, friend! I do believe a toast is in order. You’ve found your person and are so ready to share his last name. The good news: That’s the hardest part! The bad: You are bound to want to pull your hair out deciding between fondant or buttercream, lace or tulle, an innocent peck or a first smooch that gives the phrase blushing bride whole new meaning. The ugly: Too many couples let the planning jitters get in the way of the joyful spirit of engagement season.

But you don’t have to do it alone. I was standing in your suede ankle booties not so long ago, and I’m here to help you make sense of this wedding planning frenzy. I’m here not only as your photographer but also as a friend, confidant, and wedding day aficionado. With nearly a decade under my camera strap, I’ve seen and can handle it all. Just ask some of my sweet friends what it’s like to be an #apbride

Are you a bride whose heart pitter-patters for posed portraits? Then I will not be your cup of iced white mocha. 

If you’re looking for modern and timeless, wonderfully spontaneous photography—I’m your girl!

“Secretly in this biz to gain girlfriends, grab lattes and become an honorary bridesmaid!”

Look at your hubby-to-be, we both know that you aren’t one to settle. Let’s not start now. You’re not only hiring a photographer. You’re choosing the person whom you will spend more time with than anyone else on your wedding day. In the wise, wise words of Michael Scott: “Would I rather be feared, or loved? Both. I want people to be afraid of how much they love me.” This is my ultimate goal, and of course, all the pretty pictures, because I too am not one to settle. 

If you decide to trust me, I vow to never ask you to say cheese. I vow to create silver-frame-worthy photos that your family will share for years. I promise to let you be yourselves aka no awkward posing here. I vow to hold your dress when you have to use the restroom and to hand tissues to Grammy when her tears begin to spill. Most importantly, I vow to be there for you through the entire process and well after the last dance ends. 

Statistically, the number one wedding day regret that couple’s share is having settled on their wedding photographer. 

The best part of being married is…

The Greatest Showman. (I have it memorized)

We’re about to get real close and personal. After all, my camera and I are the only ones getting cozy underneath your veil besides your new Mr. So, I think it’s important we get to know one another.

AP Photography was founded on Jesus Christ’s will + a lofty dream: To create images with heart and soul, documenting all the authentic and wondrous moments that make up the story of your sweetest devotion—while keeping the cheese to an absolute minimum.

As a marriage enthusiast, I began documenting love in 2010 and have since shared in more than 100 weddings days. Then I bundled up that knowledge and applied it to another white-hot passion of mine: education. When I’m not playing with the shutter and dropping happy tears, I’m hosting workshops and coaching sessions for photographers ready to turn their joy into thriving businesses. This job calling has been the biggest blessing; besides funding my lavish Starbucks obsession, it has bestowed me with some of my greatest friendships.

However, my best friend happens to be a studly, 6-foot-6-inch, children’s pastor named Tannan. Together, my favorite human and I, share this crazy adventure called marriage and two of the cutest little cherubs, Marcus and Maci. Basically, I’m fueled by mom buns and many mochas, and above all else my foundation in Jesus.

But that’s enough about me. I want to know all about you and the man you’ll soon call hubby.

I’m Arielle Peters, a wedding photographer in Michiana for brides who want a marriage more beautiful than the wedding--and girl, I know you have a gorgeous wedding in store!
