Sarai’s Quinceanera – Fort Wayne Indiana Photogrpaher

Sarai’s Quinceanera  in Fort Wayne

Sarai turned 15 in July with a traditional Quinceanera.  We had a photo session in June at the Foster Park Bridal Glen in Fort Wayne.  They used some of those photos for her party at the IPFW Ballroom.

Her father, Sergio, is the Pastor of their church, the Simpson United Methodist Church, where the ceremony was held.  One of her sisters translated the Spanish ceremony into English as her father spoke.  Her mother, Janie said a blessing for her.  One of her grandmothers said a blessing and her other grandmother sang a song.  During the ceremony she was given gifts of a bible, watch, ring, prayer pillow, crown and a doll.  Each item symbolized her relationship with God and the transition from girl to woman.

After the ceremony, we went to an apartment building where one of her sisters lives to take photos.  They have an awesome view of downtown Fort Wayne.  At the ballroom, each of her court couples were introduced with their own song and dance, then performed a group dance.  After dinner, Sarai’s parents presented her with her first pair of high heels, and took away the flat shoes of her childhood.  She waltzed with her father. Then they did a special dance to My Girl, and were joined by three other gentleman who ended up blocking her boyfriend!

What a wonderful day topped off by a wonderful party!  Thank you for choosing White Tiger Photographic to capture this momentous occasion!

Abby and Damien Married in Warsaw, Indiana


Damien and Abby chose The Roost at the Crazy Egg Café for their ceremony and reception.  Abby and her attendants met at DC Haircrafters to prepare for their special day.  Damien surprised Abby with a gorgeous bouquet of roses.

We went to the Chinworth Bridge outside Warsaw for group shots.  Damien and his guys did some pre-wedding fishing.  They didn’t catch much, except some weeds!

After the wedding we did photos at the Winona Lake Park.  Such a pretty day for pictures!

Congratulations and Best Wishes to this wonderful couple!



Katherine and Blaine Married!-Fort Wayne Indiana Wedding Photographer

Katherine and Blaine Married in Fort Wayne, Indiana


Katy and Blaine met on-line four years ago.  They were married at the Saint Joseph United Methodist Church in Fort Wayne Indiana.  It was a humid and toasty day, but our couple shined brightly!  They included family and friends in their wedding part.  Katy had her sister, brother-in-law, niece and nephews plus her best friend from grade school.  Blaine and his attendants have been friends since pre-school and grade school.

We joined the happy group at the church, and while doing our “before” pictures, one of the ring bearers lost a tooth!  He still had a great smile.

The Reception was held at The Charles. They had two cakes along with different flavored cupcakes.  One of the cakes was decorated with Katy’s family sign, the other had several features.  Since Blaine is a radio broadcaster, they created their own call sign with their initials – WBKT.  After dinner, their First Dance was impressive!  They had taken ballroom dancing lessons, and performed wonderfully!

After their Las Vegas Honeymoon they will reside in Fort Wayne.  Katy is a Geriatric Social Worker and Blaine a HSA/FSA Agent.

We would like to thank Blaine and Katy for choosing White Tiger Photographic to capture their day!
