Woman takes wedding photos after fiance dies in crash


DAVIESS COUNTY, IN (WCMH) — An Indiana woman went ahead and had her wedding photos taken in memory of her fiance, who was killed by an alleged drunk driver.

The photos were taken by Loving Live Photography on the day Jessica Padgett was supposed to marry her fiance, Kendall Murphy.

Murphy was a volunteer firefighter who was killed by another volunteer firefighter who police say responded to a crash scene while drunk.

On what was supposed to be her wedding day, Padgett put on her dress and makeup and took a somber set of pictures. In some of the photos, she poses with some of her fiance’s firefighter gear and kneels over his grave.

Photographer Mandi Knepp told WZTV she hopes the photos will help others going through a tragic loss.
