Hayley & Zach | Newfields and Holliday Park Engagement Session

I first met Hayley and Zach at a bridal show earlier this year. It wasn’t hard to forget them initially since Zach is so tall and Hayley has the most gorgeous hair and smile, but after meeting them for coffee at Provider to talk about wedding photography, I quickly realized they were one of those couples who are just kind and authentic from the get-go. They make you feel seen when you are talking with them, they are thoughtful, and they are so genuine. When they decided to book me for their October wedding, I was overjoyed and so excited! I love working with people so much, and especially such kind and loving folks like Hayley and Zach.

For their engagement session, we met on a bright and slightly chilly spring day at Newfields, where the blooms were in full beauty and Indiana was showing off. I threw on music as always to help us all relax, and Zach, nervous at first, quickly warmed up and got comfortable getting photos taken, while sweet Hayley laughed and drew him into tight hugs and smiled up at him. Guys, this couple is amazing! We ended our session at Holliday Park, chasing some sunlight and talking about life, what they like to do for dates, and how beer is harder to drink than whiskey sometimes. :)

I’m so incredibly honored that I get to document their wedding this fall. I just know it’s going to be amazing because of these two!

Kelsey & Chris | Midwest Fall Session | Strawtown, Indiana

Let me just say that I love all types of sessions, but some of my favorites are couples’ sessions, in the fall, with cool laid-back couples. Kelsey and Chris were just that, and I loved every minute of our session. I met Kelsey through a mutual friend, and we connected on Instagram. She is a lovely, lovely soul, and a lifestyle blogger who writes about self-love and body positivity. Go check out her Instagram page!

I met Kelsey and Chris and their two adorable pups at Strawtown Koteewi Park on a brisk but beautiful evening, and we spent our time walking around the lovely grounds and getting some gorgeous shots. These two were so fun and relaxed, and rolled with everything, laughing away with one another. I could tell they just loved being with each other, and it made my heart warm to get to tag along as third wheel while I snapped some photos. Their session gave me allllll the fall feels, and you’ll be able to tell why when you scroll through. I just love this season so much and I’m so thankful I get to work with amazing people like Kelsey and Chris!
