Jessica+Zeph

Meet Jessica and Zeph!  We met them at the fire station in Center Point, Indiana, for their engagement session.  

Gah!  I’m gushing over all your images, friends!

Jessica, you look so pretty and are simply beaming with happiness!

Zeph is such a good guy.  When I look at this image, the word “safe” comes to mind.  After getting to know Zeph, I can tell you that he genuinely cares about Jessica’s safety.

So many favorites!

They met each other through Chrysalis.

Why the fire station in Center Point you ask?  Well, because Zeph works there!

Nobody wears firefighter gear better than you two.

Stop it.  Seriously, you guys are way too cute!

Then we made our way inside the fire station for a few shots.  Love the moody look of these.

Know what they are having for dessert at their wedding?  Cobbler!!

Outfit and location change.  These last few take place on the land where Jessica grew up.

Love that dress.

In case you couldn’t tell, they are such a country-lovin’ couple.

Jessica requested a ring shot.  Why of course!

You guys!!

Zeph decided to propose on their three-year anniversary in Jessica’s backyard at the lake.  Right here!  (Side note: After Zeph proposed that evening, Jessica said I was the second person she called because she wanted to make sure I would have their date available to photograph their wedding.  WHAT?!  I’m crazy honored.)

Before Zeph proposed, Jessica told him that when she got a ring, she would get him a drone.  She kept her promise.

God provided a pretty amazing sky for us that evening.

Jessica and Zeph,

YOU GUYS!  Gah.  I love your relationship.  So happy you chose such meaningful places for your engagement session.  Thanks for seriously rocking your session.  We’re ready.  That’s right.  We’re ready for the wedding!

Caitlynn & Nick

I believe we tried to use our hoods to repel mosquitoes.  It wasn’t that effective.  (Sad face.)  On the right: Zeph showing Nick all those drone gadgets.  I think he wants one now.

Alisha+Christian

Meet Alisha and Christian!  We met up with this fun couple downtown Indianapolis, Indiana, for their engagement session.  

Love that look, Christian!

These two met through mutual friends at Indiana State University.  While talking to them, we found out we actually have friends in common with them!  Small world.

A little Indy magic.

Love this couple so much that we wish we could duplicate them!

Alisha, that smile!  Yes, please.

Love your love for each other.

We saw so many cool places while walking downtown Indianapolis. None of them cooler than Alisha and Christian though.  

Love that dress on her.

They’re getting married at The Sycamore Winery in Terre Haute, Indiana.  We’ve heard it’s a beautiful and classy location.  Can’t wait!

That’s right.  There is some greenery downtown Indy.

Christian proposed to Alisha at Garden of the Gods in Colorado.

 

Hello, color!  Is this where all the cool kids take pictures?

While Nick was taking this shot…

I was taking this one.

Girl, you’re so pretty!

Alisha and Christian,

Gah!  You guys are so sweet and adorable.  Thanks for walking (and walking and walking) during your engagement session.  We’re pumped for the big day!

Caitlynn & Nick

“Hey guys!  Let’s get a picture all together!”

Hmm..Can you find Nick on the left?

August 27, 2017 - 8:16 pm

jenny - What a fabulous engagement session! LOVE that color wall you found, and you guys managed to capture SO much variety in your session, amazing! My favorite is your perspective of Alisha while Nick is capturing Christian’s angle. Her nose scrunched up to his is adorable! I can’t wait to see their wedding day!

August 28, 2017 - 9:30 am

Destinee Blau - What a darling couple! Such fun images. Great locations and beautiful smiles. Great work, friends!

August 31, 2017 - 10:41 pm

September 1, 2017 - 11:19 am

maike - Ooh, love me a downtown session! But that greenery shot is TOTALLY my favorite!

September 1, 2017 - 12:40 pm

Chrissy - They are so cute!! Love the energy from this session!!

September 1, 2017 - 4:41 pm

Rachael Allex - What a fun city session!! These are so cute! Also makes me a little homesick for Indy!

September 2, 2017 - 7:29 am

Megan Danser - LOVE THESE!!! Such gorgeous locations and beautiful couple!! Love that multi-color tower where the cool kids take photos. 😉 Awesome!!!

September 2, 2017 - 12:57 pm

Melissa Yocum - This session is so much fun! Love that shot from above focused in on Alisha, especially!! She’s beautiful!

Kelli+Adler

Meet Kelli and Adler!  We met up with these two cuties in Plainfield, Indiana, for their engagement session.

Adler is a sports reporter for the Tribune Star in Terre Haute, and Kelli just graduated from ISU with her nursing degree.  So many exciting events taking place for them! 

This guy was all smiles the whole evening.

I adore their outfit choices.

These two are friends with another couple we photographed – Shelbie and AJ!  Love all these connections.

Like I mentioned on Facebook, Kelli said that she wanted some flowers in her engagement pictures. We started their session in the city. Flowers in the city? Challenge accepted.

My shot on the left; Nick’s on the right.  I think Nick won.  This is one reason we love shooting together.  Same moment but two different perspectives.

Girl, that hat was made for you!

Ahhh!!! A favorite!

I’m so glad we turned the corner and found this blue wall.

As you can see, these two went to rival high schools.

And look at THESE outfits!

Guys, your love is contagious.

Umm…can we please take a moment to talk about Kelli’s hair.  Incredibly gorgeous.  I’m dying.

Adler had no idea Kelli was going to do this.  In fact, we told him that she was pretty far behind him and wasn’t moving.  Epic reaction, Adler.

Gah!  You guys are perfect.

The sun started setting.

We ended our session in an orchard.

Kelli and Adler,

You guys are the sweetest!  We adore you, your perfect outfits, and your incredible personalities.  We’re dying to shoot your wedding.  Can’t wait.

Caitlynn & Nick

Nick, I think that “Bride-to-be” bag is perfect for you.

Love shooting on this bridge.

We’ll shoot anywhere!  Yep, even a First National Bank.

 

August 4, 2017 - 4:28 pm

Chrissy - They are so dang cute!! Love her romper-dress!!

August 4, 2017 - 5:03 pm

Angie - What an adorable couple! I love this whole session!

August 7, 2017 - 1:35 pm

Megan Danser - Loooove the locations and love their outfits!!! Such a cute couple. Great job!

August 8, 2017 - 9:16 pm

Natalie - You’ve captured their love so evidently. And seriously, how cute is she in that hat?!?! Adorable!

Shandi+Jeremy

It’s wedding time for Shandi and Jeremy!  

This couple was classy and country.  Friends, when planning your big day, make your wedding YOURS.

Shandi surprised Jeremy with his own personal hanger that also said, “Suit up.”  If your a fan of How I Met Your Mother, you guys know exactly what I’m talking about.  If you are a little lost right now (or just want to watch a 17 second clip of the show), click here -> SUIT UP! 

It’s Shandi!

Shandi, I love that you wore these boots to your hair and makeup appointment.  Thank you for being YOU.

Throwing those glasses on to see her beautiful face.  Fun story: Shandi planned on wearing contacts for her wedding day; however, she forgot to order them.  The morning of the big day, she stole two contacts from her brother.  Shhh!!  He doesn’t know.  What makes it even better is she took two of his left eye contacts since they were closer to her prescription.  So now her brother has three right eye contacts and one left eye contact.

Meet Shandi’s parents.  This was the gift she surprised them with.

Before she put on her wedding dress, she nonchalantly poured herself a bowl of cereal and ate a little snack.  Love this bride.

Here’s Jeremy!

Doesn’t he have such a great smile?!

Left: Shandi’s wearing her grandmother’s wedding dress.  Right:  Oh, that’s right!  Even her garter was Disney themed.  In case you didn’t know, these two are huge Disney fans.

First look.

Same moment.  My shot on the left.  Nick’s on the right.

You’re rockin’ it, Jeremy.

Such a classy look, you guys.

One of my favorites.  Shandi, you look so beautiful.

If you missed their engagement blog, click here.

Bridesmaids and groomsmen.

Those colors!

Having a moment with Dad.

They each brought a picture of their own parents on their wedding day.

And here are their parents now!  Lookin’ good, guys!

It’s always great to have someone in place to fluff your wedding dress before you walk down the aisle.  Fun story:  The lady on the left told me that the night before she got married, she went to bed while her mom ironed her wedding dress; however, her mom completely scorched the bottom portion of it.  Her mom quickly embroidered some flowers and sequins over the scorched part.  When she got up the next morning, her mom told her that she just thought the dressed needed a little extra something.  She didn’t find out what really happened until several years later.

Hello, perfect day.  Thanks for showing up for us.

They couldn’t stop smiling!

Oh yeah!  That’s right.  They’re married!

After the ceremony, lots of hugs.  They also had someone play guitar for them during the ceremony instead of hooking up an iPod.

Wedding party!

This flower girl was all about lifting up her dress.

Another favorite.

Bustling that dress.

First dance.

Father-daughter and mother-son.  Notice the tissues in his mom’s hand.  Always gotta have those ready.

Then it was time to party!  P.S. – That pretty lady on the right.  That’s Shandi’s person.  (If you’re a Grey’s Anatomy fan, you get that.)

Yep, even if you can’t physically attend the wedding, we’ll still get a picture of you together.

Oh my heart!  Love these precious couples so much.  We have photographed all of their weddings.  Since we were all in the same place, I requested a quick shot together.  Thank you all!

Hi there, cute couple!

Your reception was so much fun.

I feel like he should be saying, “Bond…James Bond.”

Center: Wade from Shaye and Wade’s wedding.  Right: Nathan from Micaiah and Nathan’s wedding.

Jeremy, you have the best group of friends.

Shandi, you are adorable.

Shandi and Jeremy,

Thank you for being YOU.  We had the best time with you both and so appreciate your patience.  Love telling the story of your day.  Enjoy marriage.

Jennifer+James

Meet Jennifer and James!  We met these two Reds fans in Cincinnati, Ohio, for their engagement session.

We, of course, had to stop by the Great American Ball Park while we were there.

Smiles like this!  Yes!

A favorite!

Jennifer moved from Indiana to Arizona to teach a few years ago.  During that time she met James!  Now they both live in Kentucky.

Outfit and location change.

Gah!  Jennifer, you look gorgeous.  I can’t wait to see you as a bride!

I want to shoot in Cincinnati all the time now.  So much variety.  Nature around the corner with so much snazzy architecture.

Any F.R.I.E.N.D.S fans out there?  Jennifer and I are both huge fans, and Jennifer introduced James to the show.

Love those Cincinnati bridges.  Love it even more with these two on it.

We had a few minutes left until sunset, so they changed into these stylish outfits, and we went to work!

Another favorite!

Totally different feeling in front of the stadium after the sun has gone down.

Oh man!  Can’t wait to photograph your wedding.

The sun decided to leave us, but we managed to grab these last few shots on top of the stadium.

Jennifer and James,

You guys rocked your shoot.  We are thrilled to photograph your wedding and CANNOT wait!
