For Jerad and Amanda’s Elkhart engagement session, we met at a couple spots including a natural backdrop and a brewery they love.
An Elkhart Engagement Session
Jerad and Amanda live and work out of Elkhart, Indiana, so it made sense to find some spots for their session in the area! We met first at Cobus Creek Park for some outdoor photos. They are both adventurous, and outdoor photos fit their vibe so well. Luckily it had just snowed the night before and the morning, and it was still snowing, giving us some fresh white covering for their photos. It was magical looking as we shot their session in some wooded areas of the park.
Jerad and Amanda are friends
I met Jerad through some mutual friends when we moved up to Northern Indiana, and then later met Amanda and I have to say that it is SO fun getting to photograph friends. When they asked me to photograph their engagement session and wedding, I got so excited! I absolutely love their vibe, and how they interact, and they are some of the coolest folks! It made our session even more fun since I already knew them!
We took photos at one of their favorite Elkhart breweries
For the second part of their Elkhart engagement session, we made our way to one of their favorite breweries, Westwind Brewery. The staff was so kind, and allowed us to shoot in their awesome space. We got some beers, sat and chatted, and took photos in between sips and chatting. I loved getting to see one of their favorite hangout spots, and since they both enjoy a good beer, it was a perfect setting for part of their session!
I loved this Elkhart engagement session!
It made me so happy to photograph Jerad and Amanda, and I am so excited for their April wedding this spring!
Cheers to the soon-to-be Mr. & Mrs. Stump!
